You will never see a drop in taxes. Schenectady is run by democrats.

Let's start by hiring 20 more cops to patrol the streets. It's not going to get any better. Pay now or pay later.

I started a youth group at the 1st Presbetarian Church on State St some years ago. I guess the youth group stopped. Every week I had a police officer there to hang out for an hour (usually on the cops lunch time) we would play basketball and talk. That was a win win. Work schedule had me retire from it and the pastor eventually moved away, someone should step back to the plate and restart that Friday night group. BTW the guy has 10 kids? It costs over $10,000 per year to raise a kid not counting college. He must have a great paying job.

You would think that the Gazette would know that was Detective John Ericson, not John Harris.

These so called protests are a fad looking for attention. If the cop that shot Mike Brown was Black, he would still be dead and the Sgt. in charge in Staten Island was Black... Stop already...

Susan Jenkins,
He was not shot for a petty crime, when he put his hands on and threatened that clerk he committed a strong arm robbery, a felony. When he punched the police officer in the face multiple times and tried to grab his gun he committed a felony, battery on a police officer. What would he have done if he got that weapon? He was six foot five and over 320 pounds, he was charging at the officer. FYI, if the cop was black he would still be dead. When you resist arrest then you are risking more charges up to and including possible death. Don't commit crimes and you will rarely if ever have an interaction with a police officer.

Cuomo disbanded the Moreland Commission because he would be one of the first caught up in it. One thing I know about democrats is that most of them holding office are dirty and that goes for lots of republicans too. Term limits, term limits, term limits.

But you see the uproar with a standard takedown, imagine what would happen if he died by Taser. Perception, plus who knows for sure the rules of engagement for the use of a Taser in NYC, especially since they have that idiot Di Blasio as Mayor.

Reader says they could have used a taser, really? What do you think 50,000 volts would have done to a guy with a bad heart, probably the same outcome. He wasn't attacking nor did he have a weapon so I would say that him dying by taser would have worsened the situation. Bottom line, don't break the law and if you do break the law, don't resist.
