I am not sure if it really matters if target was in the house or standing outside. The issue is the crime and that should be the focus to resolve. This is not healthy for any community and should be a prority, how the article was written is secondary to say the least.

Well lets hope the city code enforcement makes sure J Luke contractors ( I am sure they will be doing the construction or someone affiliated ) put a drainage system in!!! A good contractor would know to do that I am sure and the city needs to enforce it.

No one elses business!!! People spend too much time worrying about others business when there are plenty of projects that could use the time and energy! There is no entitlement needed here either

Good for Empire! the SLA has over stepped its bounds since established and needs to be reorganized. They have stated the they have their own rules. Hope Empire stands their ground.

maybe its not just the recipients of benefits that need to change their attitudes to resolve some issues.

Yes Chuck I know exactly what sterotype means and would expect nothing less from you. perhaps you just are not aware of what really goes on in your community. As a landlord, a business owner and a resident for many years I got first hand knowledge. Live in other places, I am sure you can make it, and see how other communites have found better more productive ways to solve problems. They also respect others views and opinions. Schenectady has a serious problem and its not getting better in case you haven't noticed, so I would think a different approach might be in order. Learn from other situations.

This is horrible I am sorry but this is not showing compassion ! Its called enabling!! These families already have plenty of assistance and obviously refuse to learn or to use the sources correctly. For years the new ways have not worked at all, how about going back to some of the old ways - orphanages create jobs, create boundaries, a structure and if the parents aren't on board- homes for them too. No food stamps or housing allowances go to anyone but the homes. Just an idea.
BUT this is not helping what it is - not taking responsiblity for the problem that exists and enabling it. Look at what other states and communites do that have less of a problem and see how they got there. There are better ways .

Sorry but I don't think ticketing the home owners or business owners will help. They are the ones severely overtaxed. How about the tenents ? how about the kids getting tickets for the pants below their hips even? Some counties in Florida is now ticketing people with pants 3 inches below the waist. If one or two start to take pride in themselves or their home maybe just maybe it will catch on. Police drive by many incidents that could create honest revenue. And I have watched it - the day the Union College won the hockey game- they drove right by many students with open containers going to Center St. Then there was a riot. There are numerous situations just like this that go on everyday.

How about the no taxes for the properties you destroy with no drainage system, for an example,. Because now its costing the taxpayer more then owed in taxes, legal issues and a vacate building.
