Great editorial, I couldn't have said better myself. Perhaps those still supporting Silver have something to hide. If Silver squeals to save his own hide, perhaps many more of his supporters will also find themselves on the wrong side of the law.
More than likely this will turn into a long drawn out circus like the Bruno trial, and the end result will be a big bill to the taxpayers with no punishment.
Bruno and Silver(along with many others) should be sharing a prison cell for the rest of their lives.

Excellent points Mr Morrill. It's refreshing to see a young person who's engaged and well informed. I hope the ministers of propaganda in your school system don't use their twisted logic to try to censor you.

The title of this piece should be "The tale of two bankrupt nepotistic societies, and the corrupt families who created them"

Mr Lo Piccolo,
You are absolutely right, in fact, your letter didn't go far enough. I hope you'll be contacting me to tell me exactly how I should think, what I should wear, where I should live, what I should drive, and any other changes we should make so as not to offend you. I'm sure you have detailed and specific "living" instructions for all of us who don't conform to your "perfect", enlightened, and non offensive way of life. Some of the greatest leaders(monsters) in history, and currently in power (dictators), share your opinions. Sharia law comes to mind, perhaps that would be a good place for you to start.
I write this tongue in cheek due to the fact a person of your mindset is far beyond reasonable dialogue, however since I am highly offended by your words, do I have the right to advocate you being silenced?

National Defense? You mean like the Pentagon, the feeding trough for corrupt politicians and their friends to make millions while the boots on the ground in harms way make less than minimum wage? I don't think so.
As far as the troopers, law enforcement is not a commodity which can be purchased. Comparing them to a commodity like health insurance, and health care is not apples to apples. Health insurance can be very easily be purchased without government involvement by those of us who choose to work, therefore earning money to buy things like health insurance from many providers in the private sector.

Chuck, Can you give me one instance of the government (local, state, federal) sticking their nose in, and improving things?

Another irresponsible misguided editorial. You advocate moving responsibility up the chain of command. Perhaps it should be moved right up to Eric (thank god he's leaving)Holder, the most biased unfit AG the country has ever seen. Holder had the unmitigated gall to run to Ferguson after the criminal Michael Brown attacked officer Darren Wilson. Did he meet with officer Wilson? Of course not, his warped agenda took him to visit "community activists" and other rabble rousers, rather than visiting the officer who had his face bashed in by a criminal who was obviously trying to kill him.
The further up the chain you go, the more politicized and removed issues become. The local level is by far the most accountable to the people, and issues should stay local.

Editor, Can you back up the following statement you made with facts?
"The officers died as the result of one crazed individual with a gun and a warped mission. They did not die, as some have asserted, as the result of any individual's political policies or from citizen activism in the aftermath of police shootings in Ferguson and Staten Island"

When Cuomo was questioned about his foolish dictate, he replied " I've traveled this whole state, from Staten Island, to Queens, to The Bronx, Brooklyn and Manhattan, I've never seen any farms or farmers.

Everyone has been shouting peaceful protest?????? Here's a peaceful chant from one of the protests "What do we want..... dead cops" I must have missed the "peaceful" protesters in Ferguson who peacefully burned buildings and looted, or maybe the peaceful protesters who peacefully assaulted the NYPD officers on the Brooklyn Bridge, and on and on and on. No matter how you try to spin this, the blame clearly lies on the shoulders of Obama, Holder, De Blasio, and Sharpton. The idiot in the White House could have diffused this from the start if he kept Holder in his cage, and clearly stated that Michael Brown was a criminal who got exactly what he deserved.
As far as the murderer being insane, he probably was, and he was egged on by the anti police sentiment coming from the four stooges mentioned above.
