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.

I thought that the civilian was calm and not at all disrespectful. People have a right to refuse a search if they want to. The response was over the edge. Perhaps it's time to think about retiring.

Such a shame for his family and the families of the rest of the people mentioned.

My sympathy to anyone who is related to or knows this person. The headline is terribly written - to today identify???? Really.

How can a parcel in that location be assessed at that low value? Other than that - I agree wee need apartments that are more upscale to keep younger people here. The general housing in this city won't attract too many people with disposable income.
