Posted on June 26 at 5:46 p.m. (Suggest removal) ever think that, maybe now since these 2 were believed anyone can say and off-duty officer pulled out their gun just to get at them. Police officers cant win, I would advice any off-duty officer who see's a crime to stay out of it and look the other way. Just like so many in this city do for them, how can their be respect for police when administration, Gazette, and others are always trying to destroy them and would rather settle a case or suit to save the city some money at the risk of an officers reputation and career, cop and their families are on their own..I would not want to be a cop in this city..all surrounding towns pay their officers more and give them the respect they deserve, a they deal with a fraction of the crime and scrutiny. What I want to know is did these guys know this cop prior to incident, if so.. I wonder..but MKUBAN would rather see the miscreants and dumbasses running the streets. The problem in this city isn't the police but everyone who thinks is ok to make a buck and get 15 minutes of fame from accusing police of misconduct..I cannot imagine being a city cop, God bless them for the thank less job they do every day...We at least owe them some respect and loyalty, fi not for them our streets would be truly lost...

Well I feel bad for Schenectady police officers they are always in the spot light for the stupidest sh** and when It comes time for there job to be on the line they always get the short string. Bennett was a cop now he's against them always taking sides with civilians and not standing up for his own officers. Shame on you Mr. Bennett stick up for your guys.. I'm a tax payer in this city and a long living resident I love this city and respect the officers. LET THEM DO THERE JOBS.

let me just say the jv's run the city...they know nothing happens to them and God forbid the police get to do something real like real cops used to do until the tree hugging-granola bar eating liberals run the country and heaven forbid if someones feeling get hurt.....just sit and listen to a police scanner for a week and only listen to sch'dy and you will start going to council meetings and express your views and make the worthless politians know WHAT really happens!!!!!

I love Guyanese names they are so freaking hilarious. In regards to this though ladies and gentlemen these teens are the new wave of our society well inner city kids to be the least. The sad thing is this area really isn't part of the inner city so y'all know what that means the disease is spreading and slowly making its way around the whole city. There should be a curfew for juveniles in Schenectady and the police should be allowed to force them MR. MAYOR.. But would never happen. So remember police can't do anything when a juvenile is involved ..

Will someone please wake up and realize that you need tax reductions if development is going to occur at the Alco site. I keep hear people say Ellis, SCCC and Union all whom don't pay a dime. Chip fab sure however their tax deals are hardly a winner too. Casino or not at least give the site a chance, the mall did bring in tax dollars for Rotterdam and the county it might the best looking but it is better then just using services.

Jim I wouldn't have to worry about it because the parents of these failing kids don't care so I would never have to see them. So I will have an educated kid helping me who truly cares and not kids who don't care. Parents don't care "kids don't care". They don't care what teachers have to teach them because the parents of the failing kids could give two sh**'s. So it does not matter what we do we can't help the situation if the PARENTS DON'T CARE.

Yesterday when I wrote the comment above I mistakenly thought that the Gazette was trying to be balanced, after seeing my choices today for the poll I am starting to wonder how balanced the Gazette really is. While the poll has the disclaimer it's not scientific please note every choice is towards condemnation, simple agreement, or you having no opinion. To be fair as I said before if the facts proved he did it maybe he should not be a police officer however there was no choice in the poll for it was harsh or he should have been able to keep his job etc, which in a balanced poll you would need. So how tilted is this article in it's reporting? I would hope not, but... A quick review of Gazette articles of the past highlight the many ills of the Schenectady force, rarely do I see a positive article. I cannot imagine that everyday every police officer in that city is up to no good. How about a little balanced reporting.
