Didn't anyone at the treatment tell her that drinking in the morning is, well - problematic? I guess if you don't have a job it doesn't matter what you do.

Fifty bucks says that her male friend has a record and left his prints all over everything. Lock those cars - never make it easy for them.

They need to change the license plates in New York - it should have the slogan "Everything for Sale." I would like to know the actual total cost to the taxpayers of this whole process up to the day the first casino opens. And why is this dragging out? I realize that the applicants paid a million dollar fee - but frankly, at this point - who is there in Albany to trust? Also - how much lobbying cash and prizes passed hands?

Really? First of all - I think you meant either, not neither. I only made that comment because your first comment was not in line with the facts. You said "everyone" overlooked the facts when they were in all the newspaper articles. The police were called because someone saw a rifle in the car. Secondly, you know nothing about me so saying that I am part of some gigantic problem is just ludicrous. Sarcasm undoubtedly goes right over your head.

No one overlooked it - someone called the police and said there was a rifle in the car. The police were there and asked him for permission to search - and he said no. For all yopu know - this was a set up because the cops are pissed at this guy because the other cop had to quit. Which he DID - almost immediately - rather than get fired. Even if this guy is a jerk - he was within his rights to say no and the cop went off and slapped him for no reason.

OK, he was arrested for doing this before and was out running the streets at 2 a.m. doing it again. Any parents or does he live alone?

Good work - but do we really need people from out of town to come here and rob banks???

Mr. Riitano was the victim of a gun crime. Having been mugged at gun point (not in Schenectady) I can tell you it is a very traumatic event. I certainly cannot blame him for being upset. So trashing him is not helpful. I live in the Central State area and one rarely sees the police over here. The PERCEPTION is that they don't come here. When it comes to crime, people's perception is very important. One of the other things I notice is on Albany and State Streets, large numbers of people hanging around (often in front of stores) doing - nothing? Selling drugs? I don't think standing around is illegal as the loitering laws have been declared unconstitutional. But it would be interesting to see what would happen if a police car slowed down and stopped right by these stores. I do think that PD is doing a good job and crime is down. Perhaps some explanation of what they are doing other than GIVE would help with perception.

Great - blows a .23 and gets a ticket??? She's a menace to society and might kill someone, but she must have had a good reason.

I find that totally lacking in taste. If you had ever had a gun pointed at you, you might not find it so funny.
