Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.

    Clicking on the link to read this policy results in a message stating “The URI you submitted has disallowed characters.”

    This must be in response to the Montford Ave. “drug sting” crash. According to this policy, a TDD (Tire Deflation Device) is the only “authorized forcible stopping technique.”

    Maybe that language should be modified by adding “or backhoe.”
