( Muslim ) Convicted felon speaks about city council run (Colorado Springs)
KRDO. ^ | Jan 03, 2013 | Lindsay Watts

Gary Flakes, a man convicted in the murders of two teenagers, formally announced Wednesday that he's running for Colorado Springs City Council.

...

In 1997, Flakes was convicted of accessory to murder and negligent homicide in the killings of 13-year-old Andy Westbay and 15-year-old Scott Hawrysiak. The boys were gunned down as they were walking in the Cheyenne Meadows area on Valentine's Day.

Flakes and his friend Jeron Grant accused each other of pulling the trigger of the shotgun, and neither was convicted of murder, sparking outrage. After spending 12 years in prison, Flakes was released in 2011.

...

Scott Hawrysiak's sister, Michele, said she was stunned when she heard about Flakes' plans to run for office.

"It's a slap in the face, it really is" said Michele Hawrysiak. "I understand you want to do all this, but why haven't you done any restitution for the families?"

Hawrysiak said Flakes has never attempted to apologize to her family and ignored an email she wrote to him seeking a face to face meeting.

...

Flakes' supporters include former state Rep. Dennis Apuan and Rosemary Harris Lytle, president of the Colorado Springs NAACP.

...

The Colorado Springs city attorney's office is looking into whether it's legal for a convicted felon to run for City Council.

Flakes, a Muslim, credits his reformation to a conversion in prison.

Flakes returned to prison after violating parole. He has been a free man for less than a year and wants us to trust him with enormous responsibility.

Expressing the DIMocRAT ethic and quoting “the world’s smartest woman”: “What difference, at this point, does it make?”

” “What difference, at this point, does it make?””

Then she goes on to say we need to keep this from happening again. Well, how the hell can you rectify a problem unless you identify all the features of it?

No wonder dems can’t solve problems.

Are convicted felons allowed to vote in Colorado?

Some states do allow such after time served, etc.

IF he cannot vote in any General Election, how can he vote on any local issues that affect thousands of people???

This run for office needs to be derailed.

Justice denied, demons and devils walk freely among us, celebrated and embraced.

By their fruits we shall know them and in our disgust, we cast them out, only to have justice denied.

So it goes, the Progressive rinse and repeat.

By their fruits, we definitely know these pigs all too well.

I live in Colorado Springs and remember that shooting. This being a very Conservative area with a lot on military families here, I have the feeling he will not do very well

Colorado is one of five states that allow convicted felons to vote once they have completed their prison sentence, including parole requirements. You are eligible to register and vote the day you are released from parole.

So he’s a murdering Muslim who violated his parole just a year ago, what difference now does it make? Keeping him out of office won’t fed a hungry child. /s/
