From: Schenectady cops’ stripper party draws discipline

The first story reported? I believe it only stated that off duty police officers hired Tops in Bottoms strippers for their holiday platoon party and that an investigation is going to be done. That's all I remember from the first article no other accusations. and what makes you so sure there wasn't 3 witnesses if it was just stated that there was. It was also stated that a member of the gazette team saw all this so is that the one witness you speak of? I still do not understand what makes you so certain if you have no facts to back up these findings, and whether someone reported it or not, who cares? It was obviously true there were strippers at the party that was proven. I'm not quite sure why you seem to be lashing out at one particular individual and Ms. Moore for something that police officers did wrong. It appears to me that you just want to blame people, or have a hatred for Ms. Moore for doing her job and for whomever you think reported it. It seems to me that correcting these classless parties should be the topic of conversation instead of bad mouthing people, or making ignorant comments about a reporter or officers wives/girlfriends. I'm also sure if anything illegal or inappropriate went down that the officers involved wouldn't admit it or throw each other under the bus in an internal investigation anyway. It was also stated in Times Union that a few officers refused to attend the party until the strippers had left because they too felt it was inappropriate. So that to me says something, maybe everyone should have conducted themselves with the same intelligence and this whole thing wouldn't be going on. This wasn't a bachelor party the last time I checked it was referred to as the "Platoon Holiday Party"

Times Union states an officers Girlfriend made a report to the Gazette however I have yet to see any article in the gazette that states that. Instead I see this article which states a member of the gazette was there and saw it all go down, and that THREE witnesses were interviewed and saw what happened as well. Your saying one "criminal source" had some big conspiracy with Ms. Moore and came to these findings, but it seems to be all factual to me, admitted by the department, the bar, and the strippers as well as three witnesses. So unless you know more than everyone else the assumptions should stop. Chief Mark Chairs referred to this party as the Platoon Christmas Party, attended by ONLY OFFICERS, wives not invited and it was private. Sounds shady to me. considering its associated with the police department and the Chief himself called it the christmas party I do not find it appropriate that these men who are held to a higher standard should be hiring strippers esp Tops in Bottoms strippers for their platoon parties whether off duty or not. I'm sure that SPD has done many positive things, that is their job to serve and protect. But this particular story is not about their positives.

I read the article in the times union as well which states an officers girlfriend made the report, however it doesn't mention any names. So your either assuming you know who it is, or its not true at all. So you mean to tell me an officer dates the type of person you just described? I find that hard to believe. Unless your an officer yourself and were at this party or work with the people who were, which would make sense why you have such a strong opinion on the matter and are making so many accusations. If you are an officer and assuming there's any truth to what you just said I guess that means you just did two things; Disrespected a fellow officers wife/girlfriend and then blatantly disrespected him as well.

Ok I've read every article Ms. Moore wrote about this topic and nowhere in any of them did she say she had some source. Obviously she just found out about this party and brought it to the publics knowledge. Are you speaking on factual information or just assumptions? Seems to me that the officers are looking for someone to blame. If some mystery source didn't comment about it then how do you know they lied about what they saw or if there even is a source at all? Maybe just maybe Ms. Moore is reporting factual information that has clearly been proven and the officers who attended the party aren't happy that they got caught doing something their superiors don't approve of. As far as this party is concerned, I know all about Tops in Bottoms, and how guys can behave when alcohols involved. I'm not accusing anybody of anything but I wouldn't be surprised if this story was very sugar coated. And in regards to who whether Ms. Moore is married or not, what in gods creation does that have to do with this story? Oh that's right absolutely nothing and its extremely ignorant and immature. Let's stick to discussing the matter at hand and act like adults.

I believe it has been said that "an officer is always on duty". If they refer to this as their christmas party for work or platoon party, whether on duty or not they should conduct themselves in a matter in which is respected by the public, their spouses and the department. Nowhere in this article did Ms Moore say she had a source or a "criminal source" at that and if she did have a source obviously they were correct, so I believe the name calling and immaturity should stop. Its clearly evident that in no way were Moore's articles false, considering the department as well as the stripping company admitted they were there. Maybe instead of throwing a bachelor party for a holiday party these officers should invite their wives and act with class plain and simple. Although I doubt any consequence will be handed out to these men, I feel Mr. Bennett and the Chief are correct in thinking there should be some.

wmarincic: prone to violence really? He was scared of what might happen? Please get real, if that was the case Haigh wouldn't have dated her and had a child with her and from the sounds of it still been in a relationship with her when this took place. It wouldn't suprise me if all the above comments were Haigh's friends and Co-workers judging by them speaking about specific events as if they know him personally you all need to grow up. BOTTOM LINE is they had no right to go to her home, they had no warrant, and he had no right to give them her keys to make entry. These officers are abusing their power to harass Haighs girlfriend/ex-friend, they wouldn't pull these special favors for any other complaintent infact most complaintents have to wait hours just for these cops to show up and essentially end up doing nothing. But hey if one of their own are involved they run right over and violate peoples rights! Is sickening, in the last article Wayne Bennet said Smith needed to go file a complaint now SPD is accusing the complaint of being false? Common now, that sounds like a set up to me, I for one am not surprised did we think they would find against their own? Even Mayor MaCarthy said no one's ever arrested for making false complaints, how come Smith was? And why won't Bennet comment on what supposedly Smith lied about? SPD is pulling at straws leave this girl alone. The Gazette is doing a good job, and should keep investigating this currupt behavior until they stop harassing her.

This is absurd! I remember the first article about this, that cop is garbage he is using his badge to harass his girlfriend and his coworkers are backing him. Did we honestly think they would find in Smith's favor? Obviously the boys in blue are going to cover their own behinds. If the officer gave his coworkers his keys to enter the apartment without a warrent that's a violation of Smith's Rights, they are harassing this girl and clearly they didn't learn their lesson with the first article so they're going back for more. she has a brain tumor doesn't she? Leave her and her innocent child alone the police were in the wrong. She dates a police officer I'm sure she knows everything's recorded, noone would knowingly go file a false complaint about something with that knowledge come on, it was already proven that they had no arrest warrant so they had no right to arrest her! They went to her house with keys and no warrant and they arrested her while she was sick over some phone calls? These officers should be ashamed of themselves go arrest real criminals for real crimes not relationship disputes my god!
