Hate to say it kids, that neighborhood is gone... Maybe the Mayor will say enough of the corner stores. There are so many ran out out of corners. Crane St, its a zoo

So what about the nurses, fireman, doctors, paramedics, and policeman why must they work holidays? Is it ok because they knew what they signed up for? Or is it because they are essential? Unfortunately the larger issue is the holiday has been turned into the largest commercial opportunity possible so now the employees are looked at just like the aforementioned members of society to those companies essential and overlooked just like doctor's nurses etc are on the holiday. Missing anyone of the above at the table will just be accepted.

Mr. Reilly, you fail to recognize that if the SAFE Act was such a great law, why was it passed in the middle of the night? What if your freedom of speech was altered in the same way? Such a change to our constitutional rights should have been done in a more transparent manner. As a lawful gun owner, I don't necessarily have a problem all the provisions of the act, however I have a big problem with a lot of it. Until it is changed or repealed there are a lot of honest law-abiding citizens who either have to abide by it or become criminals. I myself don't blame anyone for refusing to abide by it. Call me a criminal if you like but refusing to be ruled in such a manner is what created this country in the first place. Repeal it and re-write if you like but take EVERYONE'S opinions and rights into consideration!

Ya it was a set up to get this kid to the mall where he had been previously told not to return. No one said the cop was right for what he did. You don't know what prior dealings the cop had with the guy neither. The mall and State Police must be involved in the set up too because it is their case. Like I said, no one condones the actions of the Sheriff's Deputy but don't be so naive because you are just adding to the problems in this country.

Current authorized strength, as set by the City Council is 145. It was 168 a few years ago. The jobs were abolished following retirements.

ChuckD, you're absolutely right! Since you can't verify it on the Internet, it must not be true!

Several years ago when the City wanted to abolish several fire fighter jobs the citizens of Schenectady where in an uproar (rightfully so) and petitioned the City Council to change their minds. The Council backed down and the jobs were saved. The PD lost 23 jobs, going from 168 sworn down to 145, and nobody said a word. Cops get sent from one side of the city to the other handling calls for service by the call's priority and then when they were received. Just because the officer is not running lights and sirens does not mean the call they are going on is not a higher priority then what you are dealing with. Staff the PD to meet the needs of the community or deal with the delayed response time.
