A convicted rapist, who also has been caught with a stun gun and has been arrested for beating an individual with a pipe among other crimes had possession of an illegal handgun when he confronts two plainclothes detectives at work... Gee, I'm shocked that such a fine upstanding individual wound up dead... Sounds like a huge coverup. Have you ever heard of the word KARMA?

This incident will be investigated ten-fold by several agencies and a grand jury made up of citizens. Maybe everyone should just wait for all the facts to come out before they continue saying nonsense.

"Scism was charged in June 2015 with second-degree assault and second-degree strangulation, both felonies, for allegedly hitting a man with a steel pipe and choking him during an argument." "Archives show Scism was also charged with felony criminal possession of a weapon for allegedly having an electronic stun gun and a billy club in his car in August 2012. Police said at the time that he also had been convicted of second-degree rape in June 2006."

Why was this guy still on the streets with a hand gun? Sounds like more wonderful plea bargains from DA Carney...

Villano just runs his mouth once again without knowing any of the facts. When caught looking like an uninformed dunce he just reverts back to, "how should I know, they don't tell me anything."

HAHAHAHA..... Also known as a Carney special. Just plead everything way down and walk away. And residents want to know why their neighborhoods have turned to ....

Carney says it would be a waste of resources because this individual had been arrested 64 times prior and is currently on charges for more serious crimes in Albany County? This is the mindset of our District Attorney and a fine example of why our crime rate is so high in Schenectady. It's this type of mentality that drives up our crime rate and discourages our police officers from making arrests.

Residents need to understand how our district attorney is one of the major obstacles to improving the quality of life in our neighborhoods. It's time for carney to go.

Will1960, I am a big supporter of the casino and this entire project. I loved the original plan but this redesign is subpar at best. In my opinion, I believe they should stick to a contemporary concept as the original design rather than a bargain outlet walkabout design. An updated contemporary concept wold be more inline with what I think will attract more customers to this venue. This design would also save the builder tens of millions in construction costs over the redesign. The original design was something that complemented the new Socha project a few miles up the road. This rendition reminds me more of the Gloub building across the street from the development. Let's bring an updated style to this project as originally shown!
