Concerning the arming of our officers with AR-15s
I don’t think it’s a good use of our tax dollars to arm Trinidad police officers with AR-15 rifles. Supposedly these weapons would be useful in a mass shooting situation, but almost every mass shooting America has seen since the tragedy of Columbine has ended with the perpetrator committing suicide as soon as he was confronted. I can’t think of one situation where a criminal held off the police and continued killing because of having superior firepower.
I think these tax dollars should be spent to hire more officers and security guards and to give our police officers raises. Presently starting pay for an officer in Trinidad Colorado is $18 an hour. Waiters and Bud-Tenders make more money than that! It’s not right to ask our officers to put their lives on the line for low wages.
Thank you for Comcast Cares Day success
I would like to say thank you to all who helped make today a success, this was the 17th Annual Comcast Cares Day. It is our way of giving back to the community and we could not make that possible without the many volunteers like you all. I would like to give a special thank you to the business’s that donated to help. Realty One, Farmers Insurance, Wells Fargo, Washington Federal, Cunico Tire, Little Bennys Locksmith, Rays Carwash, Alpine Lumber, Super Save, and Mr. Daniels Woodshop class. Also a big thank you to the city of Raton for all the help and work that you did. I’m looking forward to another one next year.
