  1. Her husband filed his lawsuit regarding the theft of the house in Dec 2021, so it’s going to be almost two years before this gets in front of a judge. Unbelievable.

  2. Our nation’s ingrained practices of whites harming the poor, who are often dark-skinned minorities, are in play every day, If Tina Peters had been poor, or non-white, her struggle with police on Main Street more likely would have resulted in her being tased, struck, taken down, charged with multiple felonies, held in jail, tried, sentenced, and incarcerated.

    Many of today’s Republicans, whose policies enshrine the Jim Crow Days, anti-immigrant and women as second class citizens, have their feelings hurt when we tell it like it is.

    Tina will probably walk.

    • True. She’s got enough friends in the right places that she’ll be able to cut some deals.

      Welcome to Mesa County, where politics is basically just a game of musical chairs, but the number never decreases.
