"Police Department and community groups such as Schenectady’s Southern Christian Leadership Conference chapter host a forum. The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 7, at Refreshing Spring Church, 327 Georgetta Dix Plaza."
I applaud the police and community for setting up this meeting. It's a win-win for everyone involved. Hopefully, meetings like this will be an ongoing thing.

Deepest sympathies to Mr. LaJuett and the families and friends of this young couple. Let it be some comfort that they both found true love with each other, if only for such a short time. Even so, this is such a sad story.
To pnotto, to think that you actually took time out of your day to post such a thoughtless, cruel remark. My sympathies to you for being that miserable.

To the leaders of the Catholic Shrine of Our Lady of Martyrs,
Is this what Jesus would do?

It's always "a little troubling" when governments create offices that seem to single out religious groups for special treatment, said Maggie Garrett, legislative director for Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
"The concern comes with the details of what this office would be doing," she said. "Is it just outreach and connecting people? That's one thing. Is it actually giving preferred treatment to organizations that are religious? That would be another."

Absolutely fantastic idea, especially if the building is remodeled and not torn down. Hope it comes to be.

Agree with burdick. I do not favor these cheap ploys, regardless of who is in office.

The Womens Equality Act, has four specific provisions:
1. Codifying Roe vs. Wade in state law, allowing a woman to terminate a pregnancy up to 24 weeks or when necessary to protect the life or health of the mother;
2. Reinforcing the federal ban on partial-birth abortion in state statute;
3. Reinforcing a medical provider's right to refuse to perform abortions, and
4. Ensuring providers cannot be prosecuted for lawfully obeying these laws.
The fact is that the WEA would not change how abortions are provided in New York or who can perform them. It simply mirrors current federal law to ensure women's health is protected as needed.
It does not lift the ban on partial-birth abortions.
It does not allow abortions in the third trimester unless a doctor has determined the mother's life or health is in danger.

540 Taser deaths 2001-May 2013

More training needed for officers. To the media, please continue to put the spotlight on the Taser Company - something is wrong here. Clearly the taser can be a lethal weapon, unlike pepper spray. And when you add an existing heart condition to the mix, then what?
Excerpts from article, noted above.
Dr. Douglas Zipes:
“It’s obvious to me that Taser electric shocks can make the heart stop,” Zipes said. He said a tasered person’s heart can race from 400 to 600 beats a minute and send them into cardiac arrest.
Mr. Jon Firman, research director, Association of Chiefs of Police:
“The bottom line here is that anything a police officer can do to avoid the use of lethal force is a good thing,” Firman told. “It’s the most effective tool we have.”
