The kid getting hit is way more serious than the mail carrier, and should should be charged as an adult if appropriate. A shot "on the cheek" was an inch away from blind for life, and was probably a deliberate head shot.

players in football and baseball are subject to random testing, shouldn't people who make life or death decisions do the same?

This is why people don't trust the government to protect their privacy. If someone gave out the home address of a cop, that's a crime. If a cop does it, no crime, no publicity. The management at city hall is toothless.

Motorcyclists and middle age white men are the last two minorities who can be harassed without repercussions. if an equal number of Muslims,, blacks, clergy or Hispanics were stopped to match the number of motorcyclists, then there would be an uproar of no end. the motorcyclists were stopped and sitting there roasting in their leathers while the police made a leisurely check off their driver's record.

Note that the paper doesn't mention the number of bike riders who were doing nothing wrong but were delayed anyway.

We are getting even slower air traffic in the name of saving money, but we can waste $16M on this pile of pork? Who pays to maintain this thing? The initial cost is the tip of the iceberg, it will need to be cleaned, repaired, policed, and eventually torn down to keep it from falling into the water. Like any area with low pedestrian traffic and far from prying eyes it is likely to attract criminal activity.

If you read the editorial page you will see that "due dilligence" migght mean dilligently find every anti-gun editorial and letter and print it, with an occasional poorly written pro-gun letter which either lacks facts or is otherwise sounds as if gun people don't see a problem. i have only seen two good pro-gun letters in the time since Newtown.

I wonder if the mayor is going to announce that one of the assistant chiefs is moving into the city after all, or that he is backing down and ignoring the rule that the chief must live in town. The media have reported that if a chief's exam is given, one of the top three qualifiers must get the job, but that if no exam is given or the exam results age out after two years then another person may be named. Could the Mayor appoint Mr Mitchell chief?

Pity no one proof reads the headlines any more, the chief will not be named, the selection will be made public, which is not the same thing. Something like "Mayor's Selection for Police Chief to be Revealed Monday" takes about the same space and is better fitted to the planned event.

From: Schenectady police chief will be named on Monday
