Denver Post Reports a Crime – Has Anyone Notified the Police?

On Sunday 13 November, the Local section of the Denver Post reported at least one rape.  The local news columnist, bleeding heart, and illegal immigrant spokesperson Nancy Griego had a column titled Children’s Hospital Colorado program gives young moms the start they deserve.  The second paragraph reports:

A girl, 27 weeks pregnant, came in for her checkup last week. Her mother, grateful for this program, was there to support her. “Did I want this for my child? No. She’s 14.”

A few years ago I served on a jury where a man in his early 20’s was being tried for a variety of crimes.  He would cruise the local high schools and give free drugs to young girls who would skip school and go off with him.  One of the things he would also do is have sex with them.

It was explained to the jury that in the state of Colorado no one younger than 15 can give consent for sex.  Let’s repeat that.  No one 14 years of age or younger – regardless of what they say they agreed to or not – can give consent for sex.  And therefore, anyone who has sex with someone 14 years of age or younger is committing rape – regardless of whether the young person says they agreed or not.

Now, go back and read that paragraph.  This is reporting at a young girl–who might have been 13 years old at the time–has had sex.  This means that the “father” of this baby is actually a rapist according to the State of Colorado.  The state has determined that someone that young cannot understand the implications of sex to a degree that would allow them to give any kind of informed consent.

So now my question is – has anyone reported this rape to the police?  to the District Attorney?  to anyone?

We are – rightly – outraged at the neglect of abuse that went on at Penn State.  Many people have lost their jobs and others are being charged with crimes for not forthrightly reporting rape and abuse to the authorities.  So do we have the same situation here in Aurora?

The article explains that they actually ask the “young mothers” about rape and abuse:

At least 30 percent of these young mothers have experienced trauma, usually physical or emotional abuse, Scott says.

“And I think that’s very conservative,” Bethany Ashby, the CAMP psychologist, tells me later. “I see lots and lots of sexual abuse and lots of early rape, rape starting at age 6 and 7.”

I just called the hospital and spoke to their media relations person (14 November 12:00 MST).  I asked if the rape and abuse that was clearly documented in this article was being reported to the police or district attorney and was told “I don’t know”.  They have promised to get back to me.

I also called the Post and asked Griego to call me regarding my questions on the reported abuse.

Life as a Monty Python Skit

Sometimes you just can’t make this up:

“My freedom of speech was suppressed,” one protester complained as she spoke freely to the media and acknowledged that she hadn’t been arrested or asked to show identification.

From Monty Python and the Holy Grail:

“Help! Help!  I’m being repressed”.

What a disappointment – No Brown Note in Denver

What a shame that the city of Denver had to go and tell the American Criminal Liberties Union this:

Denver city officials on Wednesday sought to set to rest rumors about police equipment for the Democratic National Convention, saying they would not be buying devices that would incapacitate unruly protesters with sound waves or other out-of-the-ordinary technology, The (Denver) Rocky Mountain News reported Thursday.

Rumors had circulated that the city was interested in buying a system that, using sound waves, could cause people to lose control of their bowels. Because of the intended use of the system, it has been dubbed as the “brown note” in some corners.

But why are the Denver Police telling the Advanced Crime Litigious Union this information?  Well, even before the convention this bunch is just expecting that somebody’s civil liberties will be trampled and they are planning on pre-suing the city for some unspecified reason:

The paper reported that the city provided to the American Civil Liberties Union an accounting of its secretive security plans for the August convention as part of a deal to delay a lawsuit against the city; the ACLU sued the city in May to pry more information about the $18 million plans to beef up security following protesters’ concerns.

Extortion – what a wonderful concept.  Funny how the ACLU gets to pre-sue just based on their expectations.

Denver Bums and Addicts – Stay Where You Are

Proving just how screwed up the whole of America has become – the city of Denver is making a strong outreach to the winos and drug addicts populating its streets to make sure they know they can stay there and continue to be a public nusiance during the Democrat National Convention:

Denver police Cmdr. Deborah Dilley has a message to the 3,900 homeless people who live in the city: You can stay where you are between Aug. 25 and 28.

Responding to rumors that Denver’s homeless would be bused to Pueblo or hauled out of the hip Lower Downtown area during the Democratic National Convention, city officials say they’ll bend over backward to treat them, well, democratically.

One man has loaned five flat-screen televisions for shelters so the homeless can watch the action live on cable television. An advocate is pushing for vouchers to movies, museums and the Denver Zoo so the population can enjoy the city’s cultural scene for free. There are plans for a voter-registration drive. One of the city’s ministries will run bingo games at night.

Where’s my flat-screen TV and voucher to go to the movies?  Oh yeah, that’s right. I live normally and work and pay my bills and have a home.  However, do drugs and alcohol and live on the streets and steal and harass people and break the law–well, that’s just fine with the lovely people of Denver and their policemen.  In fact, they want to reward you for breaking the law.

Now why not go all the way and send a bum home with every politician in Denver?  Have a bum sleep on your couch during the convention.  Well, that would be actually inconvenient – so instead they will just use tax money to try and buy them off.

Illegal, Non-English Speaking, But Gifted

The Denver Public Schools continue down the path of “diversity” and degrading standards:

 More minority and poor students in Denver are being classified as highly gifted under a new system that gives extra credit to children who are economically disadvantaged or nonnative English speakers.

“It’s a much more holistic look at the kid,” said Diana Howard, principal at Polaris at Ebert, the district’s sole elementary school for the highly gifted and talented. “I wanted this system to look at much more than test scores. This is going to have a huge impact.”

All you need to hear is the world holistic.  That means its a mush-brained bunch of hippie-dippy crap dreamed up by someone who smoked a lot of dope in the 1970s and wants to implemented the stoned standard for all activities.

Here’s how it used to be done:

 Denver is the only district in the metro area that has a program specifically for “highly gifted and talented students.”

To determine who gets into the program, the district previously relied on oral tests that measure a student’s reasoning and IQ.

Here’s the new diverse way of determing that every child is above average:

To make things more equitable, the district now relies on a sum of measures to determine eligibility into the highly gifted program — cognitive tests, annual assessments, reading tests and teacher nominations. Next year, the district will consider artwork and writings.

Also, students get extra points toward entry into the program if English is their second language or if they receive federal meal benefits — a measure of poverty.

 Isn’t that special?  Can you imagine just how entitled these non-special, non English-speaking, non-gifted students will be once they graduate from this gifted program (assuming that everyone graduates of course – otherwise it might harm the student’s self-esteem)?

The money quote that encapsulates the whole thing:

We want to find the gifts that these children have, not exclude them,” she said.
