As a society, we have given the Police Officers of this country the power to stop and detain citizens. As citizens, if we choose to resist Police Officers doing that job, we have to accept what happens afterwards. Notice how almost none of the media acknowledges that the commanding officer at Mr. Garner's arrest was a black female Sgt? Or that 9 of 23 jurors were African Amercian? They'd rather enflame the misguided for the sake of viewership and liberal dogma.

If you vote for a Democratic State Senate candidate you might as well drive around NYC throwing $100 bills out of your car window. When the Democrats last controlled the State Senate from 2008-2010 they created $6 billion in new taxes and transfered billions more from Upstate & Long Island school districts to the NYC school system. Corruption was so rampant during that 2 year period that the 3 highest ranking Democrats in the State Senate at the time all wound up being indicted...Sampson, Espada, and Smith. Even Cuomo doesn't want a Democrat-controlled Senate, made obvious by his lack of campaiging for Democratic Senate candidates.

Create a "quality of life" law that enables the city to assume title of these properties, then auction them off. Developers will buy them, knock them down, and rebuild them. The city makes money, spends $0, and starts collecting taxes on Day 1.
Then create "property maintenance" laws that enable the city to take title of any title of any rental house thats considered an eyesore. Scores of rental homes are operated by out of town LLC's who do not care how the conditions of these homes affect the quality of life in Schenectady. Limit 2-Family Homes to two apartments, one per floor. Some of these traditional "double-deckers" are sub-divided into 4-6 apartments. Despite public safety issues, these homes overwhelm all public services.

Def a great old school Schenectady restaurant. Best wishes to the owners for a healthy retirement. I sure hope the eggplant sandwich remains as tasty!

Yeah Bob, back in 1941 these Liberals' forerunners, like FDR, were telling the Nation that Joe Stalin was a good man and deserved to be saved from the Nazi onslaught. Then during the late 1940's, some of these same liberals gave the Soviets our Atomic secrets because they thought the Soviet Union was the only hope for a Utopian World. After 1991, when the Soviet Union disbanded, Russian President Yeltsin released troves of Soviet documents which showed Senator Joe McCarthy was correct all along back in 1950's in what Liberals then called a "witch-hunt." Algier Hiss, the main Liberal Hero of the day, was in fact an agent of the KGB, the documents proved. But do the Liberals ever admit fault? No, they just leave a stinking pile of **** that the rest of us are now stuck with.

Downtown Schenectady is booming, but the rest of the city is in decay. No one at City Hall has a clue about saving Mt Pleasant, Goose Hill, or Bellvue. They're just letting Section 8 and absentee landlords destroy it. No one enforces zoning. No is protecting quality of life issues. The Democrats in our city are letting the Democrats in New York City use Schenectady as a dumping ground while they continue gentrifying Manhattan. And Brooklyn. Then Cuomo and Silver further screw us by not providing the extra money to deal with all the social ills they drop off on our doorstep!

Hmmn, I guess politically correctness comes before public safety when it comes to criminal descriptions of armed robbers?

Once again, this shows that justice in America depends on who you know. This person plead guilty to stealing $60000 over the course of 5 years, using 3 different methods. What does she get? 16 days in jail? Are u kidding me? Why would a DA agree to this? Is he friends with the lawyer? Does the felon's family have political connections? I don't know. But I do know that some kid with no connections and no money for a lawyer like Steve Kouray would be on a bus to Watertown right now for a 10 year stay. It's disgusting!

Mr. Higgins letter detailing the numerous crimes committed by NYC Democrats and their lack of serious prosecution, shines a light on the need for citizens to elect an Attorney General from the opposite party. Imagine the different results right now if there was a Republican State Attorney General? Instead we have one-party control and millions of dollars in theft at a time the State is laying off workers and cutting social programs. Gov. Cuomo came into town promising change but its now evident that Sheldon Silver is the real power and the corruption continues. Where is the F.B.I when we need them? Its obvious we cannot count on Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. He is from Silvers own Manhattan Democratic Club. The honchos of the State Police are appointed by the Democrats so they will not do their jobs either. As taxpayers, we are helpless while on our hard-earned pay is robbed by a political party that acts no different than an organized crime family.
