I do not believe for one second that 600 thousand dollar figure. Will SPD go to the casino or is it the State police? I think Gary is mad at Roger Hull.

I would like to know who else received this type of letter - anyone? Are churches getting it? If the mayor says he is not singling out Union - let him prove it. Some of these non-profits are doing the job the city and county are not - so let's not get too crazy over taxes and PILOTS.

The majority of crime committed in Schenectady is NOT committed in the downtown area. This was the exception. And it seems as though the police got there and these characters just walked around the corner and brazenly and stupidly started shooting. I thought that this was well handled. I do tend to like the idea of walking beat cops but I have no idea if there are enough officers on the evening/early night shift to cover that. I think it would help if we had ZERO TOLERANCE for weapons possessions. If you are arrested in Schenectady with an illegal firearm - you need to go to prison and we need to let everyone know that. No plea bargaining. And if you didn't like Schenectady and you left - don't write in the paper telling us how to run our city.

Double standard? What does some guy in another state have to do with this? I find it interesting that no one seems to think that there might have been a reason he took off from his fellow officers. Yes - police officers enforce the law and are held to a higher standard. He waited hours to turn himself in - who says he was not under the influence or that he did not have something illegal in his car? If he was just some ordinary citizen - would the comments be so generous?

Pranks? At one in the morning, speeding around the city streets is hardly a joke. Maybe he shouldn't be fired, but this is a black eye for the department, not horseplay gone wrong. What if there had been an accident?

McCarthy is such a phony. I don't believe for one second that taxes for city residents will go down if Union pays more taxes. Spend some time driving around the city, Gary - it's filthy and has a pathetic housing stock. Do something about THAT. In the twenty years I've been here, you cannot figure out how to get people to shovel their property. All you guys want to talk about is naming the streets at the casino. That is SO important. I support UNIION, not you.

Two men were BOTH arrested? That is an awful sentence. Just say two men were arrested. Does this get edited?

Charles Grassley should think about getting a real job. Not on my nickel.
