And to think I was at Glacier National Park a year ago this month.  Terrible story.

Ex-deputy cleared in sexual contact complaint in Montezuma County
Darrin Harper fired last month

A former Montezuma County sheriff's deputy accused of inappropriately touching a female suspect has been cleared of any wrongdoing after an investigation.

The Cortez Journal reports that prosecutors and the sheriff's office both conducted an investigation and determined no charges were warranted against former deputy Darrin Harper.

A 52-year-old woman had alleged in a January complaint that Harper had fondled her during a traffic stop in 2012. But the woman later told investigators during an interview that she has a mental illness and sometimes makes up things "that did not happen."

The woman had been arrested on suspicion of driving on the influence of drugs on the night in question, but the charges were later dismissed.

The investigation into the complaint also included listening to recorded jail phone calls, talking with the alleged victim's husband, and interviewing several officers present at the scene on the night in question, but no evidence was found to corroborate the complaint.

Harper was fired last month because of other misconduct complaints, including arresting people without probable cause.

I forgot to post this as it appeared a couple of months ago, but the woman suspect is a lesbian who killed her roommate Annie Meyer.  It's sad, and flies in the face of the feminist idea that lesbian relationships are less violent than heterosexual ones (though we already know that):

This happened last week in the Denver area.  An 18 year old girl stabbed her mother to death - 79 times.  A horrible story:

Lakewood woman arrested in husband's beating death

LAKEWOOD, Colo. - Lakewood police have arrested the 73-year-old wife of an 83-year-old man who was severely beaten in his home and later died.

Police said they responded to a call of a domestic dispute in on  W. Warren Drive and S. Moore Court  just before 11 a.m. Wednesday.

Upon arrival, they found Carol Weigum outside the house and found her husband, Wallace "Wally" Weigum inside the house.  He was rushed to a local hospital where he died later that afternoon.

An investigation revealed the husband died from blunt force trauma to the head, police said.

Carol Weigum was arrested at the house for investigation of first-degree murder.  Police said detectives don't believe the man's death was related to any sort of assisted suicide.

I've previously noted here that in very wealthy communities such as Beverly Hills, the "wage gap" between men and women is even greater.  This of course just means that the women are often married to wealth high earning men and benefit from that.  So the whole "wage gap" concept says nothing of how the money is spent or distributed within married couples.

Your tax dollars at work - targeting men only:

http://www.9news.com/news/local/article/352251/222/CDOT-using-talking-urinal-cakes-in-drunk-driving-campaign

DENVER - The Colorado Department of Transportation is targeting men in its latest drunk driving campaign.

The Heat Is On campaign is launching radio, bus and billboard advertising, as well as in-bar advertising such as coasters, posters and a new tool for CDOT, the Interactive Urinal Communicator.

The IUCs feature a 15-second audio message encouraging male bar patrons to not drive and instead look to other alternatives, such as public transit, 1800taxicab.com or Uber.

Males, ages 21-34, have a higher propensity for dying in alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes, according to CDOT.

I just checked - the comment is still there.


Yes, now I see it.  I didn't see it from my work computer this morning.  Strange.

That's odd.  My comment seems to have been removed.

The so called wage gap between men and women has been refuted by Warren Farrell in his book "Why Men Earn More."

http://www.warrenfarrell.net/Summary/

Excerpt:

Men's trade-offs include working more hours (women typically work more at home); taking more-hazardous assignments (cab-driving; construction; trucking); moving overseas or to an undesirable location on-demand (women's greater family obligations inhibit this); and training for more-technical jobs with less people contact (e.g., engineering).

Women's choices appear more likely to involve a balance between work and the rest of life. Women are more likely to balance income with a desire for safety, fulfillment, potential for personal growth, flexibility and proximity-to-home. These lifestyle advantages lead to more people competing for these jobs and thus lower pay.

DU law professor fights for equal pay for women

DENVER -- While women are making strides in closing the wage gap between them and men, there's still work to be done.

A recent report revealed that a typical working woman will earn more than $440,000 less than a man over a 40-year career.

That's why a professor at the University of Denver is trying to change the way females are paid at the school.

Professor Lucy Marsh has taught at DU for 40 years. She first filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in July after she began researching the alleged pay disparity. She said she discovered the alleged pay inequality after a salary memo was sent out by the law school's Dean last year.

"My hope is this will have an impact much broader than just my own case but just to make sure that everybody pays equally for equal work," Marsh said.

DU's Sturm College of Law is among the highest rated in the nation, but a group of alumni brought over 1,700 petitions to the school leadership Thursday, demanding answers over allegations that women professors are paid far less than men.

"It's time that we talk about in our society, about women and men being paid equally and it's taken too long to get there," DU law graduate Ashley Wheeland said.

DU's provost and law school dean both said there is a merit pay system based on teaching, scholarly work and service to the community.

"It's a system that is designed to be both transparent and objective, which is actually designed to avoid any type of bias creeping into that system," DU Sturm College of Law Dean Martin Katz said.

Marsh disagrees, saying the pay system is by no means transparent because nobody knows what anybody else is being paid. She says the school has not responded to her or her lawyers, but officials did meet with the alumni.

"We explained our concern about equitable treatment which is crucial for us," DU provost Gregg Kvistad said.

The alumni group called Thursday's meeting a first step.

Other women are mentioned who "broke barriers" by entering "male dominated" fields.

Gosh, us men are just such a bunch of horrid oppressors toward women.  :rolle:

Hey, any mention of, say, Warren Farrell or Glenn Sacks, etc.?
