Too bad for a beautiful resource in Albuquerque (been there during Halloween?). I garden in my yard and feel guilty turning on the hose. How have we gotten so far away from the natural world? I suspect there is unequal distribution of this resource.
It's all a part of APD's tough on crime approach. They viewed this Mitchell dude as a criminal so they weren't too concerned about getting him help.
If the story is accurate, it seems APD sent the 911 caller back into a house that they thought was burning.
Why didn't they send help when they told the caller to go back home and wait.
I believe the DA would have to be drunk not to see the fallibility of Pearson's claim of self-defense.
I really dig your passion regarding horse slaughtering. I too agree that it's a vile practice and should be outlawed.
However, the facts doesn't support your argument. The price of milk dropped approximately 50 percent between the summer of 2008 to 2009. In addition to the lower milk prices, the feds banned the slaughtering of downer cows from the food chain, which had a tremendous affect on many beef processing operations. Most of this information was readily available from multiple on-line sources, including the USDA.
Second, whether you agree or not the definition of market demand is as follow: the aggregate of the demands of all potential customers (market participants) for a specific product over a specific period in a specific market.
Mr. De Los Santos simply attempted save is troubled business by transition the goods and services he provides based on market demand.
If the situation was reversed, the Mitchell family would be refinancing their home to keep their son from a long prison system. I am still confused as to why APD hasn't charge Donnie Pearson with a crime, any crime. Donnie Pearson, by his own admission, placed his son in harms way by going to look for an armed man, which sounds an awfully lot like some form of child endangerment.
Regardless whether he was attempting to burglarize someone's home, he still was not armed when an APD officer shot him in the back. I understand that having one's belongings stolen by some miscreant isn't pleasant; however it doesn't justify what happened to the dude in the story.
