Someone should be offering Carl a plea deal - for his job. I hate to see a perfectly healthy dog put down because the people who own him are idiots. Their whining has gotten boring already. And now they have started a whole brouhaha over the city shelter. Once again - every thing in Schenectady has to be long, drawn out and messy because no one here has the sense to pass laws and regulations that are clear and enforceable. How many unlicensed dogs? Dangerous dogs? Lindsay - the easy way out would be throwing you in jail.

Thanks to those who smelled gas and did - nothing. When will the city admit that these dreadful properties are not sellable????? They are dangerous and there are squatters and thieves going in and out, creating more danger. Just more property that the taxpayers have to pay to maintain. Now we'll have extra costs and lawsuits. Great plan, Gary.

Fortunately, cash registers make the change these days, since half of our high school students can't seem to add, subtract, multiply or divide. Much of this does have to do with family issues and lack of concern for education, but let's face it - standardized tests are not the problem. Let's end social promotion and keep kids in the early grades where they belong until they can read and write.

Consider the source - these people are so desperate to get their vicious dogs back, they will do and say anything. They are incapable of keeping other people's dogs safe from theirs, so they want to deflect from that fact by complaining about the shelter. I have a dog and I am an animal lover, and I hate to see dogs put down because their owners are stupid. But they allowed their dogs to get out and kill someone else's dog. And that was their THIRD attack. Their credibility is pretty low. I know the full time animal control officers and I doubt they torture or mistreat dogs.

These people are clearly nuts. The dogs bit three other dogs and killed one of them - but they are great dogs and not dangerous?? How would Lindsey feel if these dogs were out being walked and were attacked and killed? These people are amazingly selfish and clearly not the kind of people who should be allowed to own animals other than maybe hamsters.

Nice family. They do not seem to care in the least what the dogs did and that it's THEIR fault. The son is feeling sorry for himself and the father is acting like an idiot, screaming at the son in court. The daughter is off hiding the dogs. And right there, Carol Falotico, who caused all of this, suddenly demanding that the dogs be turned over IMMEDIATELY. Way to try to cover up your mess, Carl. I feel sorry for the dogs who had to deal with these people.

It's not up to Carl whether they have an attorney or not. That's up to the judge. Their attorney had to know that something would happen and he should have found someone to take his place while he was away. They're just looking to keep this going and waste time.

That's the problem with the thinking (if you could call it that) of the council - every little bit adds up. And the pension costs are outrageous. Again - why do we need a police chief, a fire chief and Wayne Double Dipper Bennett????
