快2彩票|快2彩票技巧|海南快2彩票Longmont public safety chief: Local policies intended to prevent incident like George Floyd death http://www./快2彩票/06/02/longmont-public-safety-chief-local-policies-intended-to-prevent-incident-like-george-floyd-death/ http://www./快2彩票/06/02/longmont-public-safety-chief-local-policies-intended-to-prevent-incident-like-george-floyd-death/#respond Wed, 03 Jun 快2彩票 04:40:19 +0000 http://www./?p=976082 Longmont Public Safety Chief Mike Butler told City Council on Tuesday night that the city has policies, procedures and expectations in place intended to prevent any occurrences here of the kind of police brutality, misconduct and racial bias seen elsewhere that has sparked nationwide protests.

When Longmont police learned details of the death of George Floyd, a black man, while in the custody of Minneapolis police, none of the Longmont Public Safety staff could figure out “How can somebody do that?” Butler told Council members.

It was “a black mark” on law enforcement that upset the equilibrium of the entire country, Butler said, and he said he wanted to talk to the Council about “what’s going on in Longmont.”

He reviewed the Longmont department’s recruiting, screening, hiring and training practices, its expectations of officers, its use-of-force policies and its procedures for investigating complaints about police.

Longmont has a reputation of being a difficult city for getting hired to be a police officer, Butler said.

Seven out of every eight applicants with law enforcement experience elsewhere don’t fit Longmont’s profile for what it wants for officers.

“We don’t want lone cowboys. We don’t want lone cowgirls,” he said, addiing that Longmont seeks to hire people who “want to connect with the community.”

If any applicant has any history of any kind of violence in his or her background, “we reject them,” the chief said.

Butler said, “We’re very particular about who we bring in” to Longmont’s police division, a process he said has involved participation by members of the community.

“Our citizens have quite a bit of input” about “who we are and what we do,” he said. That community involvement includes a citizen panel that reviews complaints about officers’ alleged misconduct.

“I’m happy to say that we don’t get a lot of citizen complaints,” Butler said,

Councilwoman Joan Peck asked whether Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis officer seen on video with his knee on Floyd’s neck and pinning Floyd to the ground — an officer who had been the subject of a number of prior complaints — would have still been on Longmont’s police force with that many complaints against him.

“Without hesitation, absolutely not,” Butler said, and City Manager Harold Dominguez agreed.

“This individual wouldn’t have lasted that long” in Longmont’s department, Dominguez told Council.

Earlier in Tuesday night’s meeting, prior to Butler’s presentation, Council members voted unanimously to formally consider and vote at a future meeting on a “statement of solidarity” resolution that Councilwoman Susie Hidalgo-Fahring suggested be approved in response to “the killing of George Floyd and the protests that have followed.”

As prepared by Hidalgo-Fahring the proposed Longmont Council resolution — expected to be scheduled for action on June 17 — would say:

“We condemn the brutal death of George Floyd and the killings of so many more Black Americans because of racial discrimination by the very people sworn to protect us. We reject the actions of these officers who took it upon themselves to be the judge, jury, and executioners.

“We recognize the trauma communities of color historically experience due to ongoing police brutality. In effect, exacerbating continued fear and distrust of law enforcement. We are a nation in grief,” Hidalgo-Fahring’s resolution says.

The resolution further states that “as your elected officials, it is our responsibility to address instances of injustice. We must make the commitment to lead with compassion and the resiliency needed to build a more equitable community.

“Longmont City Council is committed in prioritizing racial equity and dismantling systemic racism that divides and destroys communities. We support our community members’ efforts to participate in peaceful protesting. We stand in solidarity with these protesters and encourage the community to remain focused on the purpose of these demonstrations, which is to advocate and fight for racial, social, and economical justice.”

At the conclusion of Tuesday’s meeting, Councilman Tim Waters read his own prepared “Statement on Justice and the Future,” saying he wanted to go on the record about where he stands.

“I stand with all who seek justice for George Floyd” and “so many others whose lives were ended by racial hatred and the people who perpetuate it,” Waters said.

“I stand with all who are committed to disrupting systems and dismantling structures that continue the stain of racism and social injustice in this country. I stand with those committed to creating a more just society and nation through hard work, collective action, compassionate action, and perseverance.

Waters also said in his statement that he stands with “Longmont’s Public Safety team, all of our first responders, and the city’s policies and approaches to policing that value prevention, service, health, safety, and respect for the people of Longmont.

“I also stand against abuse of power, the misuse of force by police, the dehumanizing of people, and disregarding the rights of anyone, especially citizens and non-citizens of color, to life, liberty, equity, justice, decency, respect, health, safety, and security by those we entrust with protecting these rights in this country,” Waters said.

Waters’ and Hidalgo-Fahring’s Council colleagues also expressed alarm at incidents of law enforcement brutality elswhere in the country and emphasized their commitment to work on trying to keep such incidents from occuring in Longmont.

快2彩票|快2彩票技巧|海南快2彩票Guest opinion: CU’s plan for unique fall semester http://www./快2彩票/06/02/guest-opinion-cus-plan-for-unique-fall-semester/ http://www./快2彩票/06/02/guest-opinion-cus-plan-for-unique-fall-semester/#respond Wed, 03 Jun 快2彩票 04:18:16 +0000 http://www./?p=977941 By Philip DiStefano

This year has been one of the most difficult in the University of Colorado Boulder history. Students not only had to say goodbye to in-person experiences with classmates, friends, campus activities and student groups, they also had to navigate new ways of learning and new ways of carrying out timeless rituals.

Faculty and staff were called upon to work in completely new ways and the community felt the economic impact of cancelled events, students leaving town and social disruption caused by some students who remained in Boulder with too much unstructured time.

While our students continue their academic journeys from 快2彩票, we have been working tirelessly to develop a plan for the near- and long-term future of the university. Our guiding principles for all of our decisions begin with the health and safety of students, faculty, staff and everyone in the community, while upholding our university mission.

As we focus on health and safety, we are working with experts and making the most informed, empathetic decisions we can with the best health information available.

During these trying times, we have to continue serving the public good while ensuring the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and community.

In service of that call to action, this week I announced our plan for a return to CU Boulder campus this fall, called our “Road Map to Fall 快2彩票.”

As with all of our COVID-19 decisions, we sought input from experts and collaborated with leaders. The plan was developed in consultation with CU Boulder faculty, staff and community epidemiology and public health experts. It was informed by more than 1,500 points of input from students, faculty, staff, parents and community members.

We discussed the proposed plan with the mayor, city manager, Boulder Police Department, county commissioners and representatives of surrounding cities where many of our students, faculty and staff live. We also discussed it with representatives of other community partners, such as the Boulder Chamber, Small Business Development Center and the Uni-Hill Neighborhood 快2彩票owners Association.
We believe this process has led to a balanced, effective, safe and healthy plan for a return to campus this fall.

Classes will begin as scheduled on Aug. 24 and finish remotely after fall break on Nov. 29. Even with students on campus, we will teach a hybrid model of both in-person and virtual learning to prioritize health and safety and minimize risk.

Our plan aims to mitigate the COVID-19 risks for the community as a whole and provide flexibility for the university’s most vulnerable, at-risk populations. We are establishing clear physical distancing protocols supported by limiting population density on campus. We are significantly increasing testing and requiring all returning faculty, staff and students to complete pre-arrival COVID-19 training and commit to following health and safety protocols throughout the semester.

We aim to reduce each person’s potential for infectious contacts by at least 55 percent through a series of measures. These include:

• Requiring masks for anyone on campus in public spaces

• Following all health regulations while off campus

• Designating cohorts of students who live and study together to reduce person-to-person interactions

• Moving larger classes to virtual environments

• Increasing cleaning and sanitation of public spaces while providing cleaning supplies for student use

• Reserving residence hall space for quarantining and isolation

• And offering take-out options in our dining halls

We will have rapid response teams for tracking, notification and isolation of infected individuals. We will continue remote work arrangements for many staff members and provide new return-to-work protocols for some staff.

All of this will be accompanied by an appendix to the student code of conduct. This will enable us to educate our students about new campus expectations, as well as public health orders and other safety measures for students on and off campus. If a student is found responsible for intentionally violating a policy, there are a wide variety of sanctions the university can impose.

We recognize students congregating off campus in large groups with poor social distancing is a significant concern for the community, as it is for us. We are working closely with city police, campus police and our office of student conduct and conflict resolution to tighten compliance and identify new approaches to intervene and educate students to make safe decisions.

The flexibility built into our plan enables us to prepare for a variety of COVID-19 scenarios with the best information available. The campus will continue to update and improve the model based on feedback received from the campus and Boulder communities. In short, we will become the most COVID-19-ready campus we can be.

We will make our best efforts to uphold our university mission while addressing the needs of the broader community in the safest, healthiest way possible. The future of our university is at stake, but we have faced adversity throughout our history and always come back stronger. I have no doubt we will this time, if we all work together.

Philip DiStefano is the chancellor of the University of Colorado Boulder.

快2彩票|快2彩票技巧|海南快2彩票Letters: Air quality data; Alzheimer’s funding; behavioral health professionals http://www./快2彩票/06/02/letters-air-quality-data-alzheimers-funding-behavioral-health-professionals/ http://www./快2彩票/06/02/letters-air-quality-data-alzheimers-funding-behavioral-health-professionals/#respond Wed, 03 Jun 快2彩票 04:09:15 +0000 http://www./?p=977937 Ramesh Bhatt: Air quality: Allow researcher to collect data

COVID-19 and the accumulating evidence of the effects of climate change underscore the necessity of science to protect our health and the environment. Unfortunately, at this critical time, there seems to be some disagreement between the University of Colorado Boulder and Dr. Detlev Helmig, the scientist who has published extensively on the effects of fracking on air quality in our region.

CU has fired Helmig. This firing, mysteriously announced first by the oil and gas industry news outlet Western Wire, led to the predictable attack from the industry about the veracity of Helmig’s research. However, Helmig’s peer-reviewed research has clearly established that fracking operations to the east and north of Boulder are polluting our air and compromising our health.

More general research by agencies like NASA, National Institute of Standards and Technology and major universities concur with Helmig’s research and find oil and gas operations are emitting pollutants like methane at a high rate, endangering health and contributing to climate change.

Even John Putnam, director of environmental programs of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, stated during the February meeting of the Air Quality Control Commission that Colorado agencies are underestimating emissions from oil and gas operations. It is clear fracking is highly polluting and endangering our health and our environment.

We also should remember that even if fracking can be conducted safely, which is nowhere near reality now, the use of the resulting fossil fuel products leads to pollution and climate change. We have learned that the effects of COVID-19 are more severe in polluted environments like ours.

Given all this and the dire need for good science, I hope CU does not put a roadblock in Helmig’s way, instead allowing him to build on his data collection and continue his path-breaking and potentially life-saving research.

Emily Wilson: Alzheimer’s: Legislature can prevent deepest budget cuts

Living with dementia is hard. I know because both my father and my father’s sister suffered from and ultimately passed because of early-onset Alzheimer’s, and my family cared for them in our 快2彩票. The COVID-19 pandemic has made it that much more difficult — for those living with the disease as well as those caring for a loved one with it.

Many of the 76,000 Coloradans living with Alzheimer’s disease rely on state programs and services to make this daunting task easier. 快2彩票 like respite, adult day programs, nutrition assistance and nursing 快2彩票s can be critical during a family’s journey with dementia. However, because of COVID-19, Colorado has a $3.3 billion budget shortfall. Budget cuts of this magnitude threaten to reduce some of these critical programs and devastate others. Rather than relying solely on budget cuts to get us out of this crisis, the General Assembly should take advantage of another option.

Under the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights, more commonly referred to as TABOR, the Legislature has the power to generate revenue in the wake of a public health emergency declaration by creating a temporary tax. The revenue generated by this tax would offset some of these budget cuts.

Legislators can — and should — implement this TABOR solution in order to ensure we are supporting the 76,000 Coloradans living with Alzheimer’s and the 256,000 family members and friends providing unpaid care for them.

Jennifer Leosz and Dixie Casford: Mental health: Thank behavioral health professionals

The COVID-19 pandemic has created a collective increase of anxiety, stress, financial and health concerns, grief and loss in many communities. As these mental health concerns impact more and more families and individuals, behavioral health professionals have stepped in to provide much needed compassionate and high-quality mental health and addiction recovery care, as well as educated communities about the importance of self-care and how to find valuable resources.

During the first critical weeks of the pandemic, their work helped divert individuals from emergency departments into more appropriate levels of care and their dedication continues to ensure individuals receive essential mental health and addiction recovery services uninterrupted.

In honor of these selfless actions, we want to express our profound gratitude for all behavioral health professionals. We acknowledge their dedication, compassion and expertise not only had a positive impact on lives during this crisis, but also make a difference every other day of the year.

We also are grateful to individuals with experience with a mental illness for stepping forward and sharing their stories. These stories are a source of hope for many in our communities as they reduce stigma and remind others they are not alone on their journey and are especially powerful during times of challenge and crisis.

It is clear the pandemic shone a light on the importance of mental well being. We are hopeful behavioral health will remain at the forefront of our lives with individuals and families choosing to integrate mental health more fully into their whole person care, support nonprofit behavioral health centers and prioritize self care.

It is through these actions we can all honor the work of behavioral professionals and support each other during this time, and whatever lies ahead.

快2彩票|快2彩票技巧|海南快2彩票Editoral: Trump’s tweets can’t be ignored http://www./快2彩票/06/02/editoral-trumps-tweets-cant-be-ignored/ http://www./快2彩票/06/02/editoral-trumps-tweets-cant-be-ignored/#respond Wed, 03 Jun 快2彩票 03:58:52 +0000 http://www./?p=977927 President Donald Trump, for better or worse, could be the most unfiltered president in the nation’s history. His public comments often meander and crisscross and, within a span of seconds, contradict themselves. Then there’s his Twitter feed, a sand blaster through which he spews a torrent of insults, innuendo and outright lies attacking critics real and perceived; applauds and retweets the apple polishers and sycophants who are the chorus in his verbal attacks; and positions himself in the eye of a hurricane of chaos. Scattered throughout like patches of grass in a diseased lawn are routine pronouncements about administration actions, the sort of topics that in halcyon days made up the bulk of White House communications.

Trump critics offended by the worst of the president’s utterances often ask why the media seem to find all of his lies and provocations newsworthy. Doesn’t that just give him what he wants? Isn’t the media getting played by “the great and terrible” Trump, to borrow an image from L. Frank Baum? Why not just ignore the “humbug” behind the curtain?

As tempting as that might be, the media can’t tune out Trump’s tsunami of tweets and his many utterances in other forums and still meet our fundamental responsibility to report on the news and try to hold government officials accountable for their actions. Trump’s attacks occasionally provide a glimpse of executive orders to come. And if the media simply shrugged whenever the president tweeted or said something outrageous, that would hasten the day when that sort of behavior seems normal.

Trump, to be sure, has broken the mold on presidential behavior (and not in a good way). He seems to conduct foreign policy by impulse, often bypassing the traditional diplomatic channels of his own government as he threatens acts of war or extends olive branches through Twitter. He has fired people in tweets, the presidential equivalent of dumping a girlfriend via text. His tweets, in other words, can break news.

Granted, he has also lied and goaded, trolled and rewarded in less obviously newsworthy ways. But in this era of unprecedented deception and manipulation from the White House and toxic partisanship just about everywhere else, it is all the more important that the media accurately report on the Trump administration, and Trump himself. How to do so is the question.

This information tower of Babel gives oxygen to this president. Trump rose to power in part by exploiting the cultural and social fractures that belie the notion that we are a nation of united states. The fabric of American society itself has long strained under growing income inequality, racial divisions and regional and cultural distrust.

So yes, the media has to cover the man behind the curtain. Not every tweet needs to be documented and analyzed, especially since so much of what the president says consists of intentional provocations rather than reliable indicators of purpose and policy. Yet enough of what the president says becomes policy or directive that his statements must be reported on.

In truth, the media could, and must, do a better job putting this particular president and his words in context. But it can’t just ignore them.

The undeniable reality is that a president’s words matter, whether they are uttered in anger, to tarnish enemies or praise supporters, to sow dissent, or as an abuse of power.

快2彩票|快2彩票技巧|海南快2彩票Boulder chief, City Council urge and pledge more local police reform as protests continue rocking country http://www./快2彩票/06/02/boulder-chief-city-council-urge-and-pledge-more-local-police-reform-as-protests-continue-rocking-country/ http://www./快2彩票/06/02/boulder-chief-city-council-urge-and-pledge-more-local-police-reform-as-protests-continue-rocking-country/#respond Wed, 03 Jun 快2彩票 03:52:00 +0000 http://www./?p=977877 Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold and City Council at its Tuesday meeting pledged local law enforcement reform beyond what is already underway as a another night of protests and clashes between demonstrators and cops rocked the country.

Councilwoman Junie Joseph, the elected body’s only black member, made an impassioned speech on the killing of a handcuffed black man, George Floyd, by a white Minnesota policeman during a virtual meeting after Herold’s presentation of a plan to make changes to Boulder Police Department’s use-of-force policies, among others.

“After 400 years of slavery, black people are not going anywhere. We’ve received emails that say, ‘let’s de-fund the police.’ The police department is not going anywhere, it’s here to stay, because we need police officers to protect us and promote our rights as citizens,” Joseph said. “I welcome the opportunity for reform because we need it. The soul of the country is crying, and we need it. We have to work on this together.”

Herold said she plans to implement the “Critical Decision-Making model” for officers to consider on the use of force at the city’s police department. She also led its implementation at her previous police department, the University of Cincinnati Police Department.

“There are already processes in place to ensure this training and this new way of looking at use of force occurs here in Boulder,” she said.

The model, itself adapted from the United Kingdom, is described by the Police Executive Research Forum as “a logical, straightforward, and ethically based thought process that is intended to help U.S. police officers manage a range of incidents effectively and safely,” in its 2016 “.”

But the National Association of Police Organizations, a group that lobbies for the interests of law enforcement departments and officers, the forum’s position on the model, arguing it “combines the imposition of another time-consuming, unrealistic and paralyzing thought process for officers under threat, with another plea to disregard the Constitutional legal standard, and tops it off with ‘that’s how they do it in Europe’ as an attempt at justification.”

Progress on community oversight of police

Simultaneously, city officials are preparing to implement the Council-approved auditor-monitor community oversight system set in motion last year in the fallout from the Zayd Atkinson incident, with interviews to start filling a newly created 11-member civilian panel that will work with a staffer set to be hired to help police the police when complaints are made by the public.

Community members working on the transition to the new method of ensuring officer accountability will participate in interviews starting later this week of the city’s first round of candidates for the independent auditor-monitor position, City Manager Jane Brautigam said.

“We are scheduled to come back to Council in September with an updated ordinance that will put even more protections in place, so the city of Boulder has definitely been working on this and we are ready to go,” Brautigam said of policing reform.

More information on the process is set to be presented to Council next week.

Atkinson, a black Naropa University student, reached a $125,000 settlement with the city this year over being confronted and repeatedly asked for identification by a former Boulder policeman while picking up trash outside his student housing building; the situation escalated to the point where multiple officers arrived on scene and surrounded Atkinson while he stood on the property. The officer who began the confrontation resigned the city’s force with a severance package, and an independent review backed a Boulder police finding that there was no evidence of racial profiling.

Plans to bring on a new auditor-monitor to investigate officer conduct and seating the new community member review panel to replace an existing one do not appear to be progressive enough for Herold or Council. The leaders emphasized that more is needed in the wake of nationwide unrest over police killings and behavior, particularly Floyd’s death, which occurred as the officer, now facing a murder allegation, kneeled on the man’s neck for nearly nine minutes.

Herold also wants to pursue accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, which involves a review of the department by outside experts to ensure it is built upon a good foundation of model policies.

“There is no doubt we have the talent to make this agency a model agency,” the chief said.

快2彩票|快2彩票技巧|海南快2彩票Column: Chuck Wibby: Rules are for losers http://www./快2彩票/06/02/column-chuck-wibby-rules-are-for-losers/ http://www./快2彩票/06/02/column-chuck-wibby-rules-are-for-losers/#respond Wed, 03 Jun 快2彩票 03:44:09 +0000 http://www./?p=977919 After two and a half months of living under rules being made up on the go that tell you to stay at 快2彩票, wear masks when you go out, socially distance from everyone else, forget about that job you had or the business you used to own, did it bother you at all to see the picture of Denver’s police chief on the front page of the Daily Camera yesterday violating every single rule they imposed on you?

In case you missed it, the picture showed Denver police Chief Paul Pazen marching with his arm around a 17-year-old girl. No face masks. No social distancing to be seen. If it bothered you, then maybe you should unplug your TV to avoid seeing the hundreds of protesters in Denver packed together doing what you were warned would lead to your arrest if you dared to try it yourself. Evidently, rules like stay at 快2彩票, safer at 快2彩票, wear your mask and social distancing don’t apply to everyone. Evidently, rules are for losers.

And if that didn’t bother you, did it bother you that the newspaper had another front page story about the city of Boulder firing “56 standard and fixed-term employees,” ending the “temporary roles of another 68 employees” and “ extending furloughs for 33 standard employees and 472 temporary employees through Sept. 20”?

That story was right next to one about Boulder’s police chief, who found herself “in a public relations pickle” because two (I guess “essential”) city employees — the city’s engagement manager and a city spokesperson — wrote and released a statement for the chief that wasn’t progressive enough. So there you have it.

The engagement manager continues to pull down $137,247 a year, plus benefits. Hundreds of others get pink slips. Too bad for you if your city job requires you to go to work and do something that can’t be done from 快2彩票. Winners and losers.

And as I wrote about last month, if city officials think this is the end of the financial bloodbath coming their way, they’re still delusional. Take a quick drive down to the 29th Street Mall and see how many businesses that depended on students being here are now closed, never to reopen or collect sales tax for the city.

The list could go on and on. The same issue of the newspaper (and what reader says I don’t read the Camera?), summarized the latest edicts from the governor. Fifty, not 51, people at a pool. Ten people on a playground at a time. 25 participants in outdoor sports leagues. 10 indoors. Groups of up to 10 can use outdoor tennis or basketball courts.

And thanks to a ruling on Monday from the United States Supreme Court, the governor finally issued a rule about how many people can be in a church at the same time: Fifty. You may wonder what happened to there shall be no law “respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

Who needs that pesky Bill of Rights when you have good people telling you what you can and can’t do? And if you own a gym or workout facility? You are the biggest loser. No statewide reopening. Just a county variance here or there. And Boulder county is not there. Winners and losers.

Laws or, in our case, executive orders, are issued with the intent that they will make our lives safer and hopefully more prosperous. Sounds like a good plan. But what does it make you if you follow the rules while those in charge know that they can openly violate those same rules without any legal or health consequences?

After all, those who are making the rules are privy to some sort of secret data set that says six feet and not five feet apart is good. And that 50, not 51, is the magic number. Being in church is dangerous. Protesting is not. Evidently it makes them the winners. And yep, it makes you a rule-following loser.

The declaration said Americans are 25 times more likely to die by gun homicide than people in other high-income countries, and that more than 100 are killed by gun violence daily on average with more than 13,000 gun homicides each year.

“Support for the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens goes hand-in-hand with keeping guns away from people with dangerous histories,” the declaration stated. “… The pandemic facing America has drastically impacted communities and individuals sheltering in place, which may result in situations where access to firearms results in increased risk in intimate partner violence gun deaths, suicide by gun and unintentional shootings.”

A national coalition of organizations has designated Friday in June as the sixth National Gun Violence Awareness Day, to help honor Hadiya Pendleton, a teenager shot and killed weeks after marching in the presidential inaugural parade in 2013, as well as all other gun violence victims and survivors.

Organizers commemorate her life by wearing orange on the first Friday in June.

“Boulder has a diverse LGBTQ community that includes people of many ethnicities, religions and professions. Diversity is a community asset that enhances and enriches the lives of all community members,” the declaration by Yates said.

Referencing the fight LGBTQ people had to endure for rights and dignity, the declaration suggested the physical separation caused by the coronavirus would not keep the community from coming together to continue the movement.

“Despite staying apart from each other to address the COVID-19 pandemic, we remain in this together as a community, working towards a better future,” the declaration said.
