These comments by McCalister are just more of the same combative whitewash we have come to expect from this guy. We had 3 police officers commit what amounted to a sexual assault of a 5 year old. We had an appellate court issue a ruling against our police department for discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation. This is not a case of national issues being projected locally, these are things currently going on in our city while our leaders look the other way.

John McCalister owns the Baskin and Robbins on ECR, and I stopped shopping there early last year on account of his character.

Did MV's city council really use the riots at the capitol as an opportunity to scold local progressive activists? I find this extremely offensive and not at all surprising: city council has spent more time criticizing their constituents than finding solutions to real problems
