Also, who is to say that the individuals making the accusations didn't do so base on possibly being arrested prior to said encounter? Have you looked I to the criminal past of those doing the accusing?? Were they arrested by this officer prior to this, and if so does it really make since to say "it was called in immediately, so no one knew his identy"? By your account any Joe schmoe should be able to make any accusations they please and lose their pay and lively hood, regardless of the outcome? Retro pay if found innocect does not really save a person from losing their house, car, having no you often think prior to writing and printing these rediculious articles? I say all members of the gazette should have their pay held until they are able to write and print a clearly thought out, educated, factual story.

Is this a joke? This is armature journalism at its finest. Why is it that the gazzett finds any way possible to drag the police dept into a negative light? You are writing an article, about a woman stating she was threatened and sexually harassed by her employer, those are serious allegations! Instead of filling your articles with crap, be a real journalist and investigate the claims made. Had this particular woman made complaints in the past and to whom? Has she ever had a history of complaining against an employer? Have those being accused ever been accused prior? All questions worth asking, none of which involve SPD. Seriously gazette, your paper is nothing more but a local version of the national enquiror!

Parents need to step in and raise their children properly. Sometimes when they refuse, or the child is that defiant yes police action must me take. As stated above by wmarincic they are always on board for upholding the law; the judges are the ones who need to be more strict. They need to stop releasing kids to their parents who are obviously not doing their jobs (take into account the 11 yr old last year released to parents on at least 3 desperate occasions after robbing cars several times) and leniency must stop! Gina99 I also must point out that if more resource officers are hired, or if more officers are dispatched to the schools (even though it is a great idea) the gazette will be screaming about officer overtime, and will press the issue until the spineless mayor caves and gets on the chiefs case about cutting it down.

Sadly, most of the problems begin at home. You can't force a parent to raise their child right. That child then becomes a burden on the school, classmates, cops, society in general. Because of a parents refusal to do the right thing, cops and teachers are forced to step into that roll. When you cause a fought on school grounds, and your parents step in to also fight....isn't that sending the wrong message? When the cops come yo deter the situation and the student surround and threaten the cops with the support of their parents and guardians, that dies nithubg more but encourage the behavior and put fuel on the fire. The answer in a lot of this is to look at the parents.

Why on earth would the police feel the need to interrupt this memorial gathering? They are all just law abiding, productive members of society; who just so happen to all be wearing camo playing dice and drinking ciroc.

Kathleen Moore......don't you have anything better to do with your time?? Why must you try and turn everything into a negative when it comes to the fire and police.....god forbid you need them one day! Your writing is terrible, I wouldn't trust you to proof read my 4 year olds alphabet. Get a new gig and start writing about things that matter

Chuck d- so what you are saying is that it's OK that so many are murdered BC the guns are purchased illegally. How about we arm those who want to be who are law abiding citizens who should have the right to defend themselves and their families against those who have no regard for life or law. Why does being a supporter of the 2nd amendment automatically make one a "gun nut"? Why are you so OK with handing over your civil liberties? "Gun nuts" and "chickens" well that makes your entire statement seem so educated. Why don't you wake up from your land of unicorns and candy rain and realize we have a bill of RIGHTS to defend. We have criminals out there that stop at no means to get what they want. Taking guns away from those who respect the law only encourages those criminals to continue what they are doing.

Seriously you people have issues. I work constantly, pay into my taxes.....and my free time should be spent cleaning after animals that wont clean after themselves? That's some serious wishful thinking on your behalf. You remember when fire and police voluneteerd in the city? Do you also remember a time they were respected? Its time to stop asking everyone else to clean after slobs and work harder to pay more taxes so they don't have to work. Make the residents of Schenectady take responsibility for themselves. Accountability goes a long way
