All assistance is designed to hide them … to put them in locales where they are not highly visible … and to do this as CHEAPLY as possible

…It never ceases to amaze me that Phoenix can ALWAYS find $$$$ for new light rail hubs to serve down town central Phoenix … or offer tax relief in the millsion$$$ for someone who buys our citizen owned “white-elephant” hotel … or a$$$$$$t professional sports owners who “black-mail” us into a new arena … BUT … homeless gives Phoenix a “black-eye” presents an eye sore is a blemish on what is being sold by our City government to new comers as “the” place to live, to engage in commerce.

These new HUBS are a luxury serving a mere handful of users…

clip_image002…IF all other aspects of “public” transportation in Phoenix was even remotely fair and equitable I could support these new hubs for our light rail tram … BUT … Phoenix does not truly want to provide public transportation which adequately serves the needs of ALL of its citizens…. rich … poor … black …. white … at times and locales which provides timely  and reasonably convenient movement…

Republicans hope to steamroll taxes through by year’s end before GOP lawmakers know what hit ’em

 

By Kerry Eleveld Friday Oct 27, 2017 · 10:55 AM PDTThis is so classic—Republicans are now in a dead sprint to pass tax legislation that still doesn’t even exist by year’s end. In fact, one of the reasons the House only passed the budget bill Thursday by a precarious four-vote margin is because some Republicans refused to clear the way for a tax bill they still haven’t seen. The New York Times writes:

Those ambitions are already complica

Oklahoma City police officer handcuffs woman for riding a bike and handing him her ID

 

By Laura Clawson Friday Oct 27, 2017 · 8:04 AM PDTA white Oklahoma City woman got a small lesson in what too many black Americans regularly face at the hands of police last week when she was handcuffed and held in a patrol car just for riding her bike to work. After a local resident called 911 to complain that a white man and a white woman were riding bikes looking at driveways, Officer James Herlihy stopped Kelsey Pierce because she was a white woman in a dark shirt with a backpack. Within moments after Herlihy stopped Pierce, he was threatening to put her in handcuffs, which is exactly what he did after she complied with his instructions and showed him her drivers license. (Watch the video below.)

Herlihy told Pierce that he had cuffed her “because you were throwing stuff at me. You handed the ID card to me like you wanted to use it as a weapon and throw it at me.” Those are some fragile damn police officers Oklahoma City has “serving with pride” (as the side of Herlihy’s patrol vehicle reads) if a woman handing over an ID seems like a threatening weapon. Herlihy included that lie in his police report, as well, despite the fact that he was wearing a body camera that proved he was lying and that he searched Pierce’s belongings without asking or receiving permission. And Herlihy was making a safe bet—after Pierce complained, the police department announced that the investigation would happen at the division level rather than going to internal affairs.

For her part, Pierce recognizes that the treatment she received—though unconscionable—is all too common for people of color:
