The problem with police reforms like body cameras is that the power still lies in the hands of police. So BPD still only released bodycam footage when it’s politically convenient for them. #btv #btvcc https://t.co/D64fGDH6i4

It seems like a lot of classifieds online have moved from Craigslist to Facebook Marketplace over the past couple of years. One advantage of Facebook Marketplace is that it's less anonymous. The person you are buying from is more likely to have a real identity and might be verifiable because they're a "friend of a friend." It also just has a more modern interface. Craigslist needs to get its act together. It still functions the same way it did in 1999.

- Sweeping Needed
The habitual alcoholics that occupy this stretch of Bank St. on a daily basis left early today leaving behind their usual empty beer cans, litter and milk crates. Is anyone responsible for cleaning up the sidewalk adjacent to the parking garage? I removed the milk crates. The city needs a plan of action to deal with this mess as it reflects poorly on all of us.

sidewalk snowplow took a swath of my yard—see photos—along with completely destroying what was a well-cared for grassy section between street and sidewalk. This needs to be repaired. Thx. David Means

Random Burlingtonian Quote of the Day 📝
This idea is that laws which purport to be statements of what actually occurs are statistical in character as distinct from so-called dynamic laws that are abstract and mathematical, and disguised definitions. Recognition of the statistical nature of physical laws was first effected in the case of gases when it became evident that generalizations regarding the behavior of swarms of molecules were not descriptions or predictions of the behavior of any individual particle. A single molecule is not and cannot be a gas. It is consequently absurd to suppose that a scientific law is about the elementary constituents of a gas. It is a statement of what happens when a large number of such constituents interact with one another under certain conditions.
