That explains one of the responses I got because I listed an example of police bias and have seen it in my family. I still support the police, but I believe we need some reforms like getting rid of conflicts of interest. No more civil asset forfeiture for starters. Humans will always be flawed, don't throw out the baby with the bathwater. Our current debt is totally out of control, I still think Trump is our last best hope.

I am getting ready to add to my arsenal. Crime has picked up in my neighborhood and it is an excuse to add on. I am getting a tactical shotgun in youth size so it will fit me better. I am also planning on doing some training for my CCW. Local gunshop says they have good concealment for women that doesn't imprint, I will see. The only one I have that works well is a very hot tank only good for winter. I tried the Flash Bang and it wasn't good for me. In the end I likely have to sew something custom.

I saw an article in my local paper about T_D being destroyed that said people referred to GEOTUS as the God Emperor unironically. I just had to laugh. Commenters straightened out the article. Trump is not my God, he is 100% flawed fabulous human. He is our glorious bastard. For me it is not literal or ironic, it is an endearment

Partly true, people with genetic fauvism died or got very very sick from the quinine medicines to protect against malaria. Using the prescriptions with the military is how fauvism was discovered. This is a tiny minority and can be tested for.

It is legal for me to defend myself here so no need to hide bodies. Castle Doctrine, plus as a small female I can't picture a jury that would convict me for self defense.

We are still deep deep red. The neighborhood I am in is upper Uintah and very nice. The problems have for sure spread. We are still figuring out how to organize to stop it. Since a neighbor caught the perps on camera and that did nothing we will need some kind of patrol. Apparently they are hitting Davis County as well.

In some ways we are more vulnerable because we don't have street lights and maintain darker night skies. This area is big enough that we could take turns and patrol all night ourselves. Each household would only need to do it once every other month even if not all participated. Alternatively we could pay for private patrolling. The area is very affluent. We have some stunning homes here at a fraction of the price because we carry the Ogden Stigma

To prevent that we have to make babies. I did my part. When birth rates drop immigrants come in to fill, this is what happened to Europe. When I lived in Switzerland from '83 to '84 more than one child was rare, and no children common. I saw what would come.

I am in Weber County, no excuse. I would expect this is Salt Lake. We, the neighborhood, will figure this out. Patrol ourselves if we have to.

To whomever the person paying the fine prefers. Not a decision of the police or government. Opera, Girl Scouts, anyone.

56, no botox, no sunscreen, no etched wrinkles. Good diet is key and good genetics.

It is hard for people who commit to positions to get elected, sadly. It is so hard to know who to vote for. I read things like "conservative values" or "Utah Values" What on earth does that mean? To some it is total freedom. To others it is imposing their views on everyone. I know multi generational utahns with a libertarian live and let live attitude and others with an everyone must share my views attitude. We were the state that repealed prohibition against the advice of the church when nearly the entire state were church members because conscience is more important than their advice and we voted the same way recently for medical marijuana (legislature gutted the initiative as written, people are pissed).

Thanks. We are here until my mother-in-law passes and she is 85, but her mom lived to be 94 so it could be a while. We do have great gun laws. At least we can defend ourselves. I am in a political no man's land between the right and left and on the Trump Train. Very liberal on some subjects and way right on other, like self defense.

Yes I did, it was summer, windows down, they were very respectful. Their stop happened first, I realized immediately that I had made an illegal maneuver and stopped behind them. My husband happened to be on the sidewalk when it happened and was blown away that I got out of a ticket. You don't have to believe me.

Hi neighbor, Weber County here. Are you guys having problems with crime and vandalism like we are? I am in an extremely nice neighborhood and it has been getting worse. County isn't doing squat.

I have met Mia and I really liked her, but she lost me over policy. It was never race. I feel like she got sucked in by the neocons. Burgess seems more on to them.

I would like to add that this was Mia Love's seat that she lost by 700 voted to Ben McAdams. She says she lost due to racism after winning twice. No, Mia, it was not racism, it was policy and people were pissed. Owens has a very high chance of winning this swing district. Owens is proving again that it was not race. Now if he were not Mormon the conversation would be different. Ben McAdams is as well. It is rare for anyone of other faiths to run for office here except in Salt Lake.

I just read about this, car was going the wrong way, likely drunk. Maybe pedestrians should not be on freeways? Can they get a Darwin if they die?

As a tiny white female I have never had a problem. I remember a car with Hispanics who did what I did right in front of me. We both got pulled over, they got a ticket, I did not. We do have a problem. I am middle aged now and got one ticket in a town with quotas, but have had very few.
A black professor my daughter had in LA always had a link to a classical station and every time he got pulled over would switch ASAP to classical, he would get left alone. He drover very nice cars, was a collector, and frequently pulled over. He advised his students to do the same.

Revenue quotas in some Utah towns as well. This does not improve community relations

Likewise and that is the same experience my son had until he married a Hispanic woman. He was shocked at how they spoke to her, deeply shocked. Some departments are fine here, but most are not. As soon as their schooling is done they are out of here. For the record I live in Utah. DIL has lived in CA, NV and Oregon with zero problems or negative interactions. She hates Utah. Also yes, we do belong to the dominant faith.

So true. We have a problem where I live and people are pissed. We are one of the most well armed parts of the country, if those Fers get caught by us it will not end well. If they come into my house and I am home they will leave in a body bag.
