Re: “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Durham's Municipal Candidates

I'm glad to hear that Steve Schewel [founder of indyweek] will retain his council seat
if he loses his bid for mayor;
we can relax and keep Steve on council.

Schewel, like others, calls for police reform (eg: de-escalation
& racial equity training), expanded bus service, etc...
ok, & Steve's a nice guy, and would obviously be a good mayor, but

I'm interested in adding a possibly powerfully effective new voice
for police reform
in the person of Tracy Drinker. I've only just met him & liked him;
like Steve & Don & Jillian, and unlike others:
Drinker listens and he seems to be of good character,
but Police Reform is important; actions speak louder than words:

Re: “Hogwashed, Part 2: Environmental Advocates Say Hog Facilities’ Antiquated Waste-Disposal Systems Are Threatening the State’s Waterways

PS: 11 pounds (a lot more than a gallon) of excreta per day
per 180 pound average pig is plausible, but
if a 180 pound man put out more than a gallon of excreta per day,
we'd call him a pig;
we would call any who sprayed sewage on others' homes, or got paid
to allow sewage to be sprayed on the homes of other people
by capitalist owners/operators of million-dollar properties to
spray sewage: pigs.

We do not allow human waste to be sprayed on neighbors' homes & children;
only politicians who feed at the trough do anything like that.
Sauce for the goose, sauce for the gander;
if it's ok to spray sewage on others' homes, then
why don't we spray sewage on the homes of
those politicians who get paid to allow that? OR
why not treat the sewage of pigs the same way we treat human sewage?

Re: “Hogwashed, Part 2: Environmental Advocates Say Hog Facilities’ Antiquated Waste-Disposal Systems Are Threatening the State’s Waterways

"Pigs-a-mile" -- Not to trivialize a serious problem
(I've smelled that sh!t),
but you've greatly
exaggerated the problem.

Using your numbers,
assuming 50 farms with 2,000 pigs/farm in a 10-mile RADIUS, pi r-squared=
314 square miles; 100,000 pigs / 314 square miles = 318 pigs / square mile;
318, not 10,000.
[The area of a circle of radius r is taught in elementary or middle school.]
318 x 11 = 3,500 pounds / 2,240 lbs/ton =
a little more than one and a half tons of hog waste
(one and a half cubic meters) per square mile per day.
1 cubic meter is about 40 inches cubed,
so one and a half cubic meters is about 400 gallons
so 400 gallons of hog waste per square mile per day.

Editors should check arithmetic.

Re: “Raleigh Cops: Smithfield Employees Did Not In Fact Break Into "F— tha Police." Sorry About All the Racism.

From the Raleigh Police Union (Teamsters):
"Last Friday, we shared a post on our Facebook page
about Smithfields Chicken and BBQ.
There was an investigation conducted
and while there were inappropriate comments made
by an employee of the restaurant,
not all the information in the post was accurate. [i.e. they lied]
has taken all the appropriate steps to deal with the manager involved."
- BS! Still implying guilt of the innocent.

Re: “An Autopsy Appears to Contradict the Durham Police Department’s Account of How Frank Clark Died

The cartoon is wrong;
bullet that shattered femur came first, from behind;
the bullet through TOP of skull went through brain & lodged in neck;
fragments along that path near skull,
and stippling on scalp indicates shot from distance less than 3 feet,
but absence of soot means more than 12 inches, so
he was executed from a distance of about 2 feet after he was shot down,
unless the shooter, Barkley, was standing on a ladder...

Re: “CONFIRMED: District Attorney Roger Echols Will Not Prosecute DPD Officer Charles Barkley for Killing Frank Clark

- in news about Echols report
other media are still trivializing the execution-style head-shot as
..."struck Clark on the left side of his scalp, according to the report"...
[a mere flesh wound?]

Echol's report does NOT say Clark had
[a mere flesh wound?] "on the left side of the scalp";
other reporters are putting words in DA report
from misreading the autopsy.

AUTOPSY suggests he was downed by shattered right femur, [also not a mere flesh wound]
and shot through top of head, bullet traveling through brain
stopped in neck under skull, shot from about 2 feet away from the entry wound,
according to the fact that there was stippling
[from less than 3 feet] but no soot
[so from more than 1 foot]
at entrance wound
at TOP of Clark's head, DOWNWARD, with the bullet recovered from the neck, under the skull.

Seems like a quick execution.
[-- "Dead men tell no tales."]

DA report says
gun and shell casing reported to have been found to the LEFT of Clark's body,
& Clark's hands were swabbed (including his LEFT hand).

Did other media reporters who reported that Echol's report said that
Clark had been struck on the left side of his scalp
even read the DA's report?

indyweek best source in this case...
