Cop Tales 

Pin It

I have just read “In Your Face” [April 28, City Weekly] about the Cottonwood Heights police harassment of the Canyon Inn.

I have lived in Cottonwood Heights for close to 13 years. It used to be a nice quiet place to live. But ever since [Cottonwood Heights Police Chief Robby] Russo and his boys took over, the town has an unbelievable and unbearable police presence.

I have had several run-ins with them. Oh, let me be clear, I never left my home. I found them to be not only arrogant, but abusive as well. Any time a visitor leaves my home, I always warn them to watch out for the Cottonwood Heights Police.

It’s too bad. I used to have nothing but respect for cops in this town; now, I think we should dress them in brown shirts with armbands instead of badges.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
