Wow!!! This is so nice. That an off duty deputy sells two handguns and he gets charged with grand larceny but if it was a regular citizen who didn't hold a position in the public sector he would have been charged with criminal possession of a weapon. Laws are not equal hence the reason people to abide by them. SMFH. Great job deputy and to the District Attorneys office who prosecuted it. Goes to show your interest is not in the justice of the people.

So sad. My heart goes out to this family, i couldnt even begin to imagine the pain and the hurt that they feel having to make such a hard decision. So sorry. R.I.P. Julianna. I'm glad you are free and having the time of your life in heaven. God has truly gained an Angel. I love you and your braveness.

This is nonsense. That man probably didnt pull out a gun. Why would he have a conversation with them, walk away and then turn around and all of a sudden lift his shirt to expose the hand gun and then the detectives identify themselves and he yets turn around again and draws his weapon and points at them. SPD you have to do better with your stories. SMDH

Sheriff Dagostino very disappointed in your pick. I thought you was smarter than this but now i see where your common sense lies. Schenectady County Jail already has alot of civil lawsuits now lets just add on top of that. Great job Dagostino i'm sure you have really made alot of us proud. U definitely wont get my vote again for Sheriff.

That sounds about right. Because the state police was not looking at what the hell he was doing so now it becomes the fault of the owner of the car that the police hit. Sounds just about right. This is America after all. Good job to the Criminal Justice System and the DA who will handle this case. Let's shift the blame and point the finger at someone else just to keep the person who did wrong from being in the spotlight. .I wonder if a citizen did that would that actually be a defense or would the driver had been charged with reckless endangerment. This goes to say to the state trooper STOP TEXTING AND DRIVING.

This is true. I sat and spoke with Patricia Paser the other day and brought up these same issues the lack of diversity in the City School District is the reason our children are being dealt with the way that they are because alot of the administration is not familiar with the cultural background. So how can someone who is not knowledgeable of something or someone can make a good and confident decision that the way they are handling things is the best when you haven't even explored other areas. I would love to disagree with Cathy Lewis as to the fact that they try to minimize suspensions because that is not at all true and i would like to see the numbers that says so. Funding yes the district wants more funding but when they get it its not being put towards what it needs to be put towards in order to get better results and i don't think that that in itself is enough to get the results the school district is looking for. Again you have to have some diversity among the staff and administration in the school district and then maybe you will see results. So i would like to beg to differ in regards to the statement Ms. Lewis said. And just to say even if you had parent involvement while that would help the kids in school it still doesn't take away from the perception of your staff as to how they look at minorities. So the solution needs to start with the District and come up with some more realistic ideas and face the truth and then the School District can move forward.

Wow... Noboby should have to be subjected to a hostile and violent environment... I wonder what the Judge thought when the "three victims" stated they threw the first punch. Oh sorry Mr. Miranda the law doesn't protect you it only protects the people who throws the first punch. I guess you should've punch them all in their face first then you wouldn't be going to jail for ten years. Smh. The system has to get better. Oh and since when a Pre-Sentence Investigation report is now absolutely misguided.... that's funny if the report didnt work in the defendants favor it probably would have been right on point. SMH. Miranda you will be okay. God's got you.

Wow must be nice. You can falsely file claims in excess of $600,000 and only face a misdemeanor charge. I have come across people who has been arrested for grand larceny maybe totalling a whooping $1,000 and is faced with a felony. She got a BIG BREAK!!! go head jacquelyn

Good ruling Judge Drago and the Appellate Division. No matter if they are trying to crack down on drugs it does not give them a legal right to search without probable cause and/or a search warrant. That is in total violation of one's right and I agree with the Judge and the Appellate Divison in this matter. You cant do what you want when you want because you are law enforcement you must follow the law!!!!!!!

This is the first online news site I have seen today, that covers, front and center, a remembrance of those who served us.
Unbelievable, it's Veterans Day, this should be the only thing that is front and center.
Thank you to Mr. Ettore, his family members, and to all of those who have served who allow this great nation to prosper.
