SAFNY, without knowing the cause of the fire how can you determine that newer or better housing would have made any difference or that an absentee landlord was to blame?

Maybe we can blame the individuals that carried out these acts and not the tools they used to do so, SAFNY.

Gene, Brian Williams is not getting a "bum wrap". He was on a helicopter that arrived approximately an hour after the helicopter that was actually hit with multiple rockets. He originally told the story stating he was on that helicopter that was hit by rockets and forced to make an emergency landing. That's not "misremembering", it's not a "mistake", it is a lie. Yes, people don't need to have been awarded a Purple Heart to have experienced trauma, but the fact is that he was nowhere near that helicopter when it went down and he always knew that. I disagree that those judging him "have not experienced this trauma and just do not understand it".

I am a veteran of Fallujah and Mosul and I was at the Rangers game where he further propagated this lie and had all of MSG standing and cheering for him and the soldier that was actually there. I cheered for them. When it came out later that he lied I felt disgusted. There is no need to defend this liar. His apology was forced and he downplayed his lie by saying he was in "the following aircraft". They must have been following from a great distance to get there an hour later.

Knee jerk reactions are usually the best ways to address problems. Way to go, France.

Wmarcinic many departments allow military service to substitute for college credits when applying. SPD does not unfortunately.

"She’d like the city to focus on lower-level offenses, like loitering in front of corner stores." Right, it's such a low level offense that it hasn't been an offense in NY for years. Try printing an article with some substance every now and again.

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!
