Re: “Smoke Signals

It may have been Jensen and Scott that issued the unlawful orders to fix exams, but it was the assistant Chiefs Watson, Jones, and Sandstorm, to name a few, that made it so. The worst thing they did in my mind was browning out fully maned stations as a form of a time out for Captains that they we trying to punish. Flock shooting the citizens with delayed responce times shows a complete disregard for our main purpose, I should never have been able to cut five full minutes off of my stations responce time just by retiring.

Re: “UTA: Transit success or failure

How much did fares get raised on Trax and Frontrunner? Just interested because we are fuming over Honolulu's decision to build a heavy rail commuter train that has been so mismanaged its actually going to END 5 miles short of this intended terminus, just at the beginning of the worst part of the commute into downtown Honolulu. So far its cost us $6.8 billion (not a typo) to build 15 miles of elevated rail line.... with no consideration given how to come up with the $100 million its going to take EVERY YEAR to operate and maintain the line.....

Re: “Fire Starter

Why isn't Scott being required to pay back this money, or better yet- why isn't he in jail? He returns this stuff and all is forgiven? What?

Why is Jensen allowed to stay on as a county councilman when he was clearly misappropriating county taxpayer funds? Get him off the council before he does everything he can to make rank and file guys lives hell in the dept. It was a conflict of interest to begin with to have him in both positions!

The current Assistent Chiefs were all appointed by Jensen to protect him and his grand plan. That are lacking in leadership skills and integrity. That do not know how to make decisions that are best for the department and public safety, but rather are trained to hide selfish schemes. It is not uncommon for one of them to threaten anyone who pipes up and questions a decision. Threats are an every day occurance in this dept. City weekly- there is more to be found. Keep digging.

Re: “Fire Starter

Reading through all the comments from all the articles, I gather one of them sells illegal steroids, they all cheat on their wives and have plenty of ass on the side, their arrogance is an understatement, and they will never admit they have done anything wrong, because they are all so full of shit and dumb enough to believe their own lies, no conscious and no remorse for what has been done- this is what I have gathered.
I'm personally more shocked that they were given the option to resign instead of being fired. Do you think the public is aware that they get a retirement, that they get to collect checks and continue to rip off taxpayers. Why were they not FIRED? WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS? Whoever agreed to a "resignation or mutual separation" is just about a bigger idiot then these arrogant, cheating, drug lords are. Can we get justice or some sort of retribution? Please?

Re: “Smoke Signals

Resigned? Scott and Jensen get to resign and pick up a retirement check- get paid for being complete arrogant a**holes? Why were they not FIRED? C'mon people... This is a joke? Whoever is making these stupid decisions and the fact he gets to keep his pension and continue to do nothing while he continues to rip the taxpayers off- who the hell is letting this continue? WHY WERE THEY NOT ALL FIRED? Who is the idiot/idiots who allowed this bullshit to continue?

Re: “Fire Starter

Instead of him turning in the excessive electronics he purchased, he should have been told, "this is your stuff, you bought it and you're going to pay us back by court order for a fire department doesn't need this many Apple devices and accessories. Through external audit, your expenses will be accounted for and you will pay back the excessive gas, flights, hotels, meals, and extraneous miscellaneous charges you racked up by court order we are seeking and will most likely get since the hard evidence is on record." Instead of being held accountable, he was allowed to skate off scottfree by simply turning in the electronics and resigning. Isn't he still on the hook for the theft and reckless irresponsible spending and doesn't it show a problem he wasn't really a chief nor a leader for he sought out excessive shopping to comfort his deficiency of some personal mental health sort of problem. This is not to mention the work time he spent playing, shopping, and the unnecessary excessive travel not normally required of a fire chief in support of a fire department though maybe they have one or two conventions a year. If I stole from my employer only paying $10 an hour wage with no bennies due to our economy being ran by stingy selfish narcissists heading the top of most organizations in power, so much as $100, I'd have the police called on me, charges brought against me, and probably lose my apartment in the process while $260,000 a year salary wasn't enough for this greedy fat cat thieving from US, the tax payers. What we is nothing less than a broken country system of double standards only favoring the chiefs only there to take all the money from We The People while the honest working people were on call 24/7 as is heard daily by the sirens. The executive bosses mongering over us preventing democracy, efficient economics, and social justice in all fairness? Leaders they are not...

Re: “Circumcision Decision

You don’t really need to go for a surgery to get your butt enlarged, you can simply get your butt and breast enlarged to your very fit with Dr Musson Butt and Breast Enlargement Products. My body shape was not encouraging as at June 2016, it really disturbed my well being a lot, having had so many breakup with guys who will try to manage my body stature, but will later get discouraged as time goes on, I felt bad about this all. My friend noticed the change in my mood always and asked what was wrong; I was forced to tell her because I couldn’t hold my fears of never finding a good shape anymore. She asked me not to worry that I can simply search online for a help which I did, I searched online and saw so many comments about Hip, Butt, Breast enlargement and reduction but I chosed to contact Dr Musson products details on They got back to me some few hours later and we talked for some time, I ordered Dr Musson Breast and Butts Enlargement products and to my greatest astonishment I started noticing some great change in my body shape just within 3 weeks of using his herbal cream products. Am so happy today that Dr Musson has changed my life in just a very short period of time, I now have a very good looking breast and off course LLAARRGGEE butt. Thank you Dr Musson for your help rendered to me, I will always be grateful. You can as well get Dr Musson Enlargement products on

Re: “Uneasy Riders

"these are not the leathered, ball-peen-hammer-wielding bikers of decades past.... What makes it special is that it's raw," Coles says, "and that it's kind of spitting in the face of people that play too safe."

It's a free Country and it's great that people can do what they want. But before you get too congratulatory about reinventing the wheel, here are a a couple of points. Utah has a motorcycle culture that has been alive and well for over 50 years.

I was told by one of these individuals that they are real bikers (to the dismissal of others) and he touted the fact that he had 100,000 "lifetime miles" between his 6 bikes. I know guys in Motorcycle Clubs who get more than that in 2 years. They can sit around the fire and quote Hunter S. Thompson recalling his days hanging out with a Motorcycle Club, but they hypocritically deny those same kinds of Club members entry into their motorcycle "art shows". It's true that Motorcycle Clubs may not be fashionable, and don't travel with their own professional photographers, but believe it or not there is a motorcycle sub-culture in Salt Lake City that doesn't need to be shown "how it's done".

The irony of the opening quote of this post is that while they denigrate traditional motorcycle culture, they seem to capitalize on all the wrong stereotypical things associated with it, i.e., rolling into a small town, getting drunk, blowing things up, and making themselves a pain in the ass to the locals in order to experience a well orchestrated and highly quaffed display for their photo-ops. No real mention of Brotherhood / Sisterhood, or supporting a cause. Just selfies and hedonism. While they claim to live on the edge and "don't like to play it safe" they pose and posture, they don't want to rub elbows with people who created the culture they try to emulate, without "going there". It's great if you don't want to wear a cut, but you aren't Steve McQueen either.

It's pretty obvious that these folks are tied into SLUG Magazine and City Weekly, because I have seen way to much of these people in the pages of those rags in the last 2 years. Perhaps those publications might want to look on the other side of the fence, past the Euro-trash $$ biker jackets, and the sun setting behind their flowing locks, distressed denim, and that oh-so-perfect quaffed beard and bubble helmet, and see what the established SLC motorcycle culture is about.

This outfit was successful in what they really wanted to do. Self-promotion, Self-importance, entitlement, and their faces on the cover of City Weekly. This isn't some rebirth of Motorcycle Culture or Freedom, this is "Me" generation looking for their 15 minutes of fame. This is the same crowd that is about to bring us an "inclusive" motorcycle show, while in the same sentence discriminating against anyone wearing a patch on their back.

Re: “Fire Starter

Absolute (read non-transparent) power corrupts absolutely.
Micheal Jensen and Gaylord Scott have CRIMINALLY abused their authority and respective positions.

Mr. Frazier's revelations are really just the tip of the iceberg, during their 7 year reign of arrogance and obvious lack of consideration for the constituency and dept. that they, and I use the word VERY loosely,… served
The damage done by these 2 unindicted criminals, will take years to overcome and repair.

What happened in Draper, with the Mayor and City Council, is a direct reflection of what the UFA will have to endure, whether it is justified or not!

The rank and file are left to pick up the pieces.
It's easy to blame Jensen and Scott because their true character had been well known by the men and women of the dept. for many years!

So, Badge 1 & 2 have had their lives implode right in front of their greedy and self-serving faces.
They need to be incarcerated for the damage they have done to the UFA, and the citizens they serve.

One last question.
If this involves the 2 highest ranking Chiefs in the UFA, how many subordinate Chiefs, like Asst. Chiefs and Batt. Chiefs are also complicit with Badge 1 & 2's illegal behaviors?

I can think of a few possibilities…

Worse yet, how many knew of Jensen and Scott's illegal behavior, yet these "professionals" chose to disregard this behavior, and look the other way?!?
Is this the behavior citizens should expect from their public safety professionals?
The answer is NO!

Re: “Smoke Signals

This is just the tip of the iceberg. I worked for the UFA for years and complained loudly on the corruption at the top. I left because it was falling on deaf ears. There are many Assistant Fire Chiefs that are also in this game, Mike Kelsey, Marlon Jones, Mike Watson, Eric Sandstrom all were on the take. Food, gas, trips, computers, equipment, etc. you name it they looked for ways to make a buck. All this at the expense of the staff and firefighter. Will someone dig deeper, probably not, this will go away and all be forgotten.

Re: “Circumcision Decision

Are you sick? Have you been battling with strange and funny illnesses? Are you in a situation whereby the doctors have done necessary tests and said there isn’t anything wrong with you? ... These were all my stories until I met with a total cure for them all... His name is Dr. uwa says my mom... I was almost at the point of death. It was that serious that I was just placed on life support even as the doctors didn't know what was wrong with me. My mom just came to my hospital bed one morning and said she had found a solution to all of my sufferings (because that was what I referred to the situation I was in then)... She said she was going through the internet and she came across some testimonies of how some people who had similar cases as mine were all cured off their illnesses through the power of this voodoo man. Without hesitation, I told her to contact the man, Which she did and she went on with the procedures as instructed her by this voodoo man (these procedures, I wasn't aware of because I was in a really bad shape then, And whenever I asked my mom she would say I shouldn't bother myself about that...that it was something she could handle). Not to bore you readers with too much of my story, in seven days from that day my mom told me about the voodoo man, I was cured off this killer disease that was at the verge of taking my life. Want to share your testimony like me? Contact the voodoo man on his direct email address... or (his mobile or whataspp number is +2348063930531)... I AM NOW A HAPPY AND HEALTHY YOUNG MAN ONCE AGAIN...THANKS TO DR. uwa

he is also specialize on curing the following:


2. Herpes Cure

3. lotto spell

4.bring back ex lover

5.Lassa fever

6. HPV

7. ALS

Re: “Circumcision Decision

I have heard of him before, but after watching his documentary “healing spell” I was turned on to the full story

about Dr uwa. He is a man who has the Cure for AIDS,Cancer, Sickle Cell, Herpes,warts,HPV,ALS Diabetes and every kind of

illness, through a whole foods vegetarian diet and natural herbs, what he calls Electric Foods. He went to herbal school college,

and has thousands of testimonials of healing people with Herpes, HIV AIDS, and HPV several other

illnesses. Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes of TLC was cured of Herpes by him and she was so moved by his knowledge that she went on

to spread the word about him in every way she could. She also opened a Cultural/Healing Center for Children in USA

before she passed away tragically. This all inspired me that i had to contact Dr uwa, because i was having Herpes

which could not be cure but was only managed, when i contacted Dr. uwa, he sent me some herbs which i took, and now i can tell you, i have be totally cured of Herpes, My Name is Jasmine, I am from the South Carolina, Please if you have any form

of illness especially STD,Infertility,HIV etc. you can contact him immediately through his Email Address

Name: Jasmine Jennifer

Re: “Smoke Signals

And the other shoe has dropped. Hopefully the audit will reveal Jensen and Gaylord for the rotten evil fucken thieves they truly are. The next step is to purge command staff and field battalion Chiefs of their stank. Start with Pudkins, the steroid dealing roidrager. Does anyone else find it funny that two of the chief rats Asscarte and Anderton left days before all this shot went down. Two fucking rats jumping off the ship before it sinks to the bottom. Maybe they saw the writing on the wall and became "anonymous sources".
