All charges are dropped many times, Lewis could have been the reason charges were dropped because he didn't really want to charge him but your friend left him no choice. Maybe the original complainant refused to press charges. Don't assume wrongly that it was because of John.

There are always three sides to every story. Your story his story and the truth. It sounds like you are happy will1960 that he is gone, until you walk the street in their shoes for a day you will never understand. I hear the stories I understand what they must do to control an ever increasing armed violent population high on drugs. I doubt that he just threw your friend down and Maced him. I would bet that he was ordered down and he either refused or resisted. Coming back from a Yankee game one night we were pulled over by the State Police, their were 3 cops in the car and me, we all put our hands immediately on the dash and the back of the seats until the officer came to the window and saw that we were not a threat. Everyone is a threat, including the 90 year old grandmother.

And after the age of 75 why we don't make drivers use a simulator each year to test reflex and eyesight is beyond me. I had an 86 year old man in 2001 cross the line and hit me head on while I was on my Harley and almost killed me.

My friend is a doctor and administers Soboxone, the patient is given a weeks worth of the drug at a time. It is readily available but you have to want to take it and most addicts don't. As usual whoever is writing these editorials is again very short of facts. Did you speak to anyone about Soboxone? You may email me or call me and I will be more than happy to connect you with my friend who administers this drug and he can give you some actual facts for once. I really doubt I will get the call but it has been a cold winter and there is a chance that hell has frozen over.

Biwemple. Won't happen. Public Employee Unions have sued the county in the past or have threatened to sue because they are afraid they will lose employees. That is why we don't use prisoners now, I think we should be using them to work off the costs of their incarceration.

He was an excellent cop for over 15 years. The stress of the job and alcohol and personal issues with the wife he loved sent him down a path of destruction. I'm sure John lived with those bad decisions the rest of his life. Are you all happy now? RIP John Lewis.

I support it as long as they can qualify for a student loan. If Commie Cuomo is so intent on this then he needs to guarantee the student loan and go after those who do not pay which will unfortunately be most of them. But hey, you never know. BTW what are the statistics before they stopped this in the 90s? Them stopping it would lead me to think that it was a waste of money. Typical Gazette editorial, short on facts. You talk about studies on similar programs but fail to give the numbers on the NYS programs.

Did anyone expect any differen? As cfield said will he be quitting his county job and will the Gazette actually do something for once and follow up or are they still the mouthpiece for these libs.?

Even if it was 2.6%. Which it is not. Then 97.4% don't make minimum wage Liberal just a different word for communist.

Let me clear something up for you since you don't know the truth. Only 1.2% of workers make minimum wage 98.8% make more than minimum wage. Class dismissed.
