Are you one of the officers that was there? If not, maybe you shouldn't critique....

Has he toured Pearl Harbor? The museum and memorial there are pretty touching as well. The difference is, Pearl Harbor was unprovoked. The loss of life in Hiroshima was much more numerous but who picked the fight? Ask anyone who lost a loved one in Pearl Harbor if their loss is any less than those of Hiroshima.

Not a hate crime? Three black females on one white?- “I especially want to point out that what happened on the bus was not a ‘hate crime,’ ” “ said UPD Chief J. Frank Wiley in a press release. “We spent a great deal of time carefully reviewing the audio recordings to determine whether any racial slurs were used. The only person we heard uttering racial epithets was one of the defendants." It states right there that one of the defendants uttered a racial epithet. Unbelievable!

SCHENECTADY — Shortly after it became clear his bookkeeper had been stealing from him and his business, John D. Marcella recalled confronting the woman.

He’d treated her like family, the owner of John D. Marcella & Son Appliances recalled telling Carrie LaFond. Why did she do it, he essentially asked.

Her answer, he told a Schenectady County Court Wednesday, was simply that she couldn’t stop.

“The hardships that followed” the thefts “were unbelievable,” Marcella told Judge Polly

(Wife of Paul LaFond)

Carrie LaFond, 41, was sentenced Wednesday to 21⁄2 to 71⁄2 years in prison after admitting in November to embezzling $466,000 from the company over three years.

The thefts hurt the company’s reputation and its bottom line. The financial problems caused by the thefts were also a major factor in the layoffs of three people and put the company as a whole in danger, Marcella said.

LaFond, who appeared in court with her attorney, James Knox, showed little emotion as Marcella spoke.

Heard that Mccracken guy likes to whine and complain when he doesn't get overtime in front of his men. Maybe he should take a course or buy a book on leadership with his hard earned six figure salary.

He was sworn to uphold the Constitution. That law is BS. That's why it was passed in the manner that it was. Maybe he should take away our right to free speech or freedom of the press....then we can all dance to the cries of all the liberals.

I prefer to follow the constitution, not a political agenda or anything else that was irresponsibly and unethically rammed down our throats while we slept
