I realize the blog is a sounding board for many people both through the comments and the information that is passed on to me for me to look into.
I also realize the blog is a mechanism for transparency and exposing issues that would probably never see the light of day through the mainstream media..
I hope to continue doing that, but some of the comments , I think, need to be regulated more. I will no longer post comments using names that are mocking or ridiculing other people. The allegations of racism and other issues, attributed to someone else's name, will not be posted . Names depicting a racist principal or Police Sergeant will no longer be allowed.
It is unfortunate that commenter's will use someone else's name, but probably have never gone to the person named and said to their face what they are willing to post here.It is time to act like adults and confront issues like adults do.
You may ask why the change? I was bothered by the comments recently depicting the Principal of Burns School as racist. Since she wouldn't talk to me the night of the incident, after I did more checking I found out several things that seemed far from racist.Apparently the Principal regularly sends students home with backpacks full of food for the weekends, students that otherwise may not be getting fed at home. I'm not sure what the commenter's definition of a racist is, but that seems far from it.
If you have an issue, feel free to e-mail me and I will attempt to look into your accusations, but they will not be posted here until I feel comfortable that there is proper substantiation.
Also, please try to keep your comments to the topic being posted, or at least something somewhat relevant.The comments can still be interesting , but try to keep them dignified
