Our post about a Denver Civil Service Commission decision to allow Officers Ricky Nixon and Kevin Devine to return to their jobs at the Denver Police Department despite their controversial actions during a 2009 incident at the Denver Diner attracted strong comments and an unexpected endorsement of life in the suburbs as opposed to the city.
That's the Denver police for you. They get up early to beat the crowds. If you go into the city limits, you take your life in your own hands.There is nothing in the Denver city limits that you can't get in the suburbs, and its soooo not worth it.
