When you can't behave in society you need to be removed from society. If he's willing to attack Police Officers he will attack anyone. I hope he gets the maximum prison sentence possible for the safety of the general public. Just today I witnessed a young man slamming his girlfriends head face first repeatedly onto the ground on Michigan Ave. I ran to help her along with others and prevent him from murdering her, which he would have. The cops arrived a full 25 minutes after the 911 call. He and his friend celebrated their escape shouting "that's how we do in da Bronx". This city is broken. One block of State St looking pretty doesn't matter when half of the city is a war zone. We need more cops on the streets and out of Hdqtrs.

It's a dangerous and often thankless job, God bless for a speedy recovery.

I'll go out on a limb and pick McCracken to get it. He donated $750 to McCarthy's election campaign and we all know how business gets done in Schenectady....

To George Putnam:

I don't own a gun. I did fire one once in Las Vegas at a range. So I'm not a Gun Nut by any means. But as a realist, I know that banning guns, any certain gun, or curtailing legal access to a gun will have zero affect on reducing gun violence in this country. Quite the opposite, it will create more crime in much the same manner that Prohibition did. Memories are short, but before Prohibition there was no Organized Crime, just random criminals. These same rifles will be bought and sold in a new black market with zero paperwork history. Chicago has the toughest gun laws in the US. Chicago has the highest murder rate in the US, so much so the local gangs call it Chiraq. These gangbangers don't have permits and receipts lol. Only a few cities in Brazil, Mexico, and Venezuela have higher murder rates than President Obama's hometown. France has the toughest gun laws in Europe. They are banned outright. How effective was that? When tragedies like Orlando happen the easiest politically correct reaction is to shout about Gun Control. But its all political window-dressing. A determined terrorist, homegrown or alien, will always have access to his chosen vehicle of death. The only real cure is to eliminate the killer before he performs his mission. There were at least a half dozen friends who knew this maniac had evil plans. They thought he wasn't serious. The FBI had him under watch and deemed him not a threat. These were the real failures that led to Orlando. They are where your anger should be directed.

Schenectadians, this is the bill you're paying for corruption. All the patronage jobs, sweetheart deals for Unions, no bid contracts for campaign donations, they all eventually come home to roast.....right out of your wallet!! Thanks Mayor McCarthy!

So basically, the jist of his convoluted explanation for obstructing justice is that traffic cameras are great for exposing crimes performed by the public, just not his Democratic cronies. Ok, we get it now. Thanks for the explanation, now retire. You've spent your life on public service welfare. Time for new blood. Someone not so entrenched in the political quagmire that wastes our tax dollars thru nepotism and corruption in this city. We have the highest taxes in the Capital District and what do we receive in return? A Mayor that rotates bars each night like he's playing volleyball and this old man, writing letters to protect his party's control of the spigot.

All she needs is the traffic camera footage from the 8 cameras that filmed this chase/event that night. Then she needs to question the Mayor, Ms. Dingley, and all the officers present that night under oath.

There were 7 traffic cameras filming the Mayor that night, all visible to naked eye, which means footage can be viewed by public according to FOIL Act:

Union & McClellan
Eastern & McClellan
Eastern & Elmer
Eastern & Columbia
Eastern & Wendell
Eastern & Prospect
Eastern & Nott Terrace

8 if you include the camera at Police HQ. Let's review the tape with the Gazette and Vince Riggi present. Anything less is a cover-up.
