Reader: Oklahoma and Nebraska Are Wastelands We Should Annex for DIA Parking

Fredy Pedraza Castillo and two other Nebraskans were recently charged with crimes committed in Colorado.

They've been accused of traveling from their home state to Westminster, where they allegedly pistol whipped and bound victims before stealing a large supply of marijuana.

In our post on this topic, we noted that Nebraska (along with Oklahoma) is suing Colorado over the state's cannabis laws in part because of added law enforcement expense — the sort of outlay Castillo and company are now costing Coloradans.

Commenters took off on this theme. Here's one of the most memorable posts on the topic.

Paul N Joni Campos write:

Oklahoma and Nebraska are both vast wastelands, filled with religious zombies! Who care what they think of Colorado? Colorado should annex both states and just use them both as overflow parking for DIA!
