Don't blame Bennett, blame the person who is responsible for it all. The blame is on the do nothing Mayor Stratton, he has never supported the SPD and does all he can to make them look bad.

They could run one of those cons to get them to all come in at once, call it the "Schenectady Police Department Job Fair."

Worm, you never fail to amaze me with your stupid comments. I wonder what you have done lately for Sch'dy besides run your mouth. Remember the old addage that it is better to shut up and let people think you are stupid rather than talk and prove it....
