If this was my loved one, I certainly would not want my last visual memory to be a close up picture of him covered with a tarp with his feet sticking out. Is there any need to sensationalize a drowning?? I know all the newspapers do this but it doesn't make it right.

I doubt the parents have much wisdom to share with the kid or he wouldn't be out on the street of Schenectady at 11pm on a Sunday. Give him another year or two and the gun will be real.

If roles were reversed and it was Mr. Franze who first put his hands on and hurt one of these delinquent teens, you can bet their parents would be suing his pants off. I hope he gets everything he can out of them, assuming their parents are productive working members of society....and that's probably a big assumption

What a great story! Seems no one ever comments on the good news. I wish these men and their new found friends a brighter future. It is a shame they were never taught compassion and empathy as children but this is a great teaching moment for them.

A scumbag and obviously psycho. For the boyfriend to stand by, let it happen and then join in on harassing the witness, I'd have to say he shouldn't have the dog either. I pity the child being subject to these abusers.

I take no sides, I don't even live in Sch'dy County so I'm not tainted in my thought process. It seems the people sticking up for Officer Hotaling know him and therefore have a biased opinion. No matter how "out of character" it may seem, everybody has bad days and there is no telling what they may do on any given day (meaning he should have stayed IN his car). There are idiotic drivers everywhere and they all deserve a swift kick but there are many details in this story and they can't all be made up.
This guy crossed the line and if he's found guilty, who's to say how this event may have traumatized the student driver. Sounds like it was all ignorant adults that put this in motion and they should suffer the consequences for their lack of self control.

With all due respect poorlaw, I've put plenty of thought into how this system works. I've been busting my butt working continually for 20+ years, I live alone, have a mortgage and all the typical expenses, I have had cancer twice in the past 9 years and you know who helped me?? That's right, NOBODY. I won't waste time arguing with a liberal minded person, which I admittedly am not. I will say that I don't have cable or a cell phone but you can bet that the people who apply for this assistance do.

The "taxpayer" gets help with nothing in this state. Just look at the way they let National Grid rip us off us this winter. Excluding some of the elderly that genuinely need help, let's supply a bunch of bums with an air conditoner so they can sit at home all day with the air blasting and the front door open.

The young man refused to leave the bus despite his own Mother being present, how much more patient did they need to be? I completely agree with Mr.O'Connor, that the police did what was necessary and if he was inadvertently hurt that's unfortunate. Also, as the school receives special funds for dealing with him, you can bet his parents receive money as well. Let them transport him next time.

I live in CP and I think this is a horrible idea! I personally shop at this Price Chopper to avoid the crowding and traffic you experience 2 miles up the road at The Crossings. Bigger is not always better and CP is pushing out lifelong residents due to constant building and overcrowding. It's sad
