Six police officers risked their lives to save a families pets. This is the real Schenectady PD. More proof not to believe what the Gazette and certain reporters write.

So wmarincic, are you saying we shouldn't believe this story, or that we should believe what the Gazette says about the Schenectady PD? Because this is LITERALLY what the Gazette is saying about the Schenectady PD.

gazettereader, this is a little 100 word article with no substance. I remember a recent private party at a closed private business that recieved multiple front page stories and an internal police investigations forced by a reporter from the Gazette. You tell me which story is more important, and while you are at it, tell me about how there is no bias against the SPD by the Gazette.

SPD (as well as all other pd's) put their lives on the line on the daily. SPD officers, however, walk out each night into a city where they are viewed as the enemy. And yet, here six men with no proper equipment or breathing apparatuses ran into a building that was on fire, to save the pets of complete strangers. How about the gazette list these officers names, so they can be shown in a positive light?....as I'm sure if it were a negative report, all officers would be named. Keep up the good work SPD.
