Re: “Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison Is Very Mad at Us

watch your back!

unlike transgender attacks in public restrooms, there IS evidence that law enforcement officers who have been criticized can and do stalk and harass their critics.

Re: “GoTriangle Plots Additional Light-Rail Spur to N.C. Central

This will only mix rich people with poor students. There is no intention to make DOLRT anything but a convenience choice for the urban hipsters. In truth it will be slower than the bus.

Do the research. Look at the cost per mile. Look at the number of riders served. Look at the fact DOLRT makes no contribution to commercial traffic and it will be replaced by disruptive new transportation technologies before it can be completed.

Look at the percentage of time DOLRT will run under capacity, then tell me how "green" it is.

Look at how much the state and feds are spending to remove at grade crossings and then count how many new at grade crossings are introduced by DOLRT.

DOLRT is a scam. A boon for developers and a curse for affordable housing. 1.8 Billion (and counting) could be spent on a much better public transit solution that serves many more people............

Re: “Chapel Hill Town Council Member Donna Bell Dinged by State Board of Elections

Finally! Way late, but finally. Donna Bell talked out of both sides of her mouth; big proponent of voter owned elections, but when things got tight, she solicited and took many out of town developer contributions. Then on top of all of that she filed here paperwork late, likely hoping no one would notice. Shame.

Pay the fine Donna. You should resign, but if you don't people will not forget your betrayal. You will lose next election cycle.

Re: “Clinton Rallies In Raleigh the Day After the Debate (Liveblog)

Boz - I'd say between 200-300. There was an overflow room for people who couldn't get in though, so I'm not sure how many were in there.

Re: “Wake County Judge Michael Denning: 'China Wouldn't Be So Bad If It Weren't for All the Chinese'

Judge Michael Denning is a disgrace to the court system. Michael Denning is a corrupt judge! He supports McCrory and Chris Malone and supports the horrible HB2. Denning says he is all about integrity and family values. Denning is all about Corruption with a capital C. He stated during a court hearing "China wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for all the Chinese." He made a discriminatory comment during a court hearing. He does favors for his friends who go into his court. He defines what it means to be a corrupt judge. He feels that because he has powerful friends like Shanahan, Chris Malone and McCrory he can just go ahead and do whatever he wants. Vote for Becky Holt for Superior Court Judge. She has integrity. Denning does not know the meaning of the word. He is a disgrace and certainly should never be allowed to be a Superior Court Judge.

Re: “Red for Cure: A Forum on Black Women & HIV Cure

Hello to the general public, it is with gratitude to God and appreciation
to Dr mark henry a great herbalist that I write you this testimony on how
my health was restored. Dr marki, God will continue to bless and reward you
for the good works you are doing in people’s life through herbal
medication. My name is Felix Jumia from Budapest,Hungary, I had lived with
HIV since 2016 (3years plus) I visited so many hospitals and places in the
search for cure but they always end up giving me drugs that could sustain
my life for a certain period of time, I spent so much money in the search
for a cure but it was all to no avail. Just a few months back, as I was
searching through the internet for possible remedy to my problem, I saw a
blog on how a certain Dr mark healed and cures people from different
illness, viruses and diseases such as HIV, herpes simplex, ALS, cancer,
genital warts, cold sore, skin cancer, diaper rash and some other
infections, I didn’t believe the testimonies so I just ignored, but after
awhile, I thought about it again and decided to give it a try since am
seriously in search of a solution to my problem. I contacted him via his
email and behold he replied me and also told me what to do, he made me
believe in possibilities and positivity. He sent me a package containing
some herbal medication and after taking them religiously as prescribed for
about a week, I went for a test and to my greatest surprise I was tested
HIV NEGATIVE. It sure feels good to be healthy again. Please if you have
any problems as a result of one illness, disease, or infection you can
reach out to doctor mark henry via his email at
and his number for whatsapp, +2348168782773 swallow your doubt and contact
him because am a living testimony. Don’t forget to tell him Felix Jummai
referred you to him.

Re: “Good News, Bull City Stoners: The Durham City Council Moves Toward Marijuana Deprioritization

So glad to see the Council taking a look at this. Schewel is exactly right. Young white people smoke marijuana frequently without risking their futures. There's no reason people of color (or anyone) should be arrested for possessing or using small amounts of a drug which is less dangerous than alcohol.

Re: “The Morning Roundup: Debate Goes Clinton's Way ... Big Time

Similar to Cedar Ridge High School teacher Amanda Harder’s situation, Massey Hill Classical High School (Fayetteville) teacher Lee Francis was suspended for ten days without pay after students complained about him putting an American flag on the floor and stepping on it… which he as doing in a lecture/demonstration about free speech guaranteed to U.S. citizens by the First Amendment.

Re: “Movie Review: Blair Witch Takes Us Back to Ground Zero of the Found-Footage Horror Explosion

I think that this sequel is a good movie to watch. It is frightening and has a lot of scenes that make you jump. I haven't seen the first one but after watching this, I think I should have watched it and it will be as good as this one.

Re: “Doomed Republican Congressional Candidates in Triangle Have Pretty Cool Signs

David you are an intelligent and articulate individual; that is a given as an individual who makes their living by the written word. Be that as it may I am somewhat saddened that you have not provided a comparative analysis between Sue & Price. You may invariably end up in the same place, but their is a story to be told here. The question is are you, in the truest spirit of the Indy, willing to take that step down the path less traveled to tell it? She has an amazing story - give the woman her due.

Re: “GoTriangle Plots Additional Light-Rail Spur to N.C. Central

Its disappointing that elected officials continue to endorse a plan that fails to deliver on the promise of regional transportation. What happened to basic common sense? Wake figured it out quickly. Why cant Durham? or Orange?

Re: “Good News, Bull City Stoners: The Durham City Council Moves Toward Marijuana Deprioritization

The Cheech and Chong gif used along with this article reinforces outdated stereotypes about cannabis users. I would hope that a progressive newspaper like the Indy would recognize that this sort of imagery isn't helping the cause. Let's try to catch up to 2016 and if you don't know what I mean then maybe you should take a trip to Denver.
