schdyres, In 1984 a person came through an open door at a hotel I was staying at, he said he was going to rob and kill me. I pulled my legal handgun and ordered him out of the room, he instead pulled his illegal firearm and was shot by me. He survived and was arrested. Had it not been for me having a gun I would have probably died 32 years ago.

@Cheryl, I paid $120,000 for my home in Schenectady in the 80s, the neighborhood turned into a ghetto and thankfully I was able to sell in 2012 for $49,000 not to mention a $70,000 loss in value, that tax savings over 30 years almost got my wife and kid killed when gunshots hit my house in a drug war. Yeah, I wished I was smarter back then and bought originally in Niskayuna, my home value would have increased by $200,000. Common sense just fails some people.

Don Steiner, where do I begin? You are saying we are racist because we think Obama is screwing up the country? Let me give you some verifiable numbers. America is 13% Black, 95% of blacks of voting age voted for Obama. Did they do so because of his race, you tell me. Whites that voted for Obama was 43%, so I would say to you that 43% of white vote was many more than 95% of the Black vote. I'm pretty tired of being called a racist because I can't stand Obama. You can do your own research.

They caused an innocent student to leave school in fear of his life to forward a lie just like the Black Lives Matter lie. Throw the book at them when they are found guilty at trial.

Just a guess but maybe the cops were watching a crack house and didn't identify themselves so as not to tip anyone off. Just a guess but maybe only one cop shot because the other cop was not as fast out of the car. Just a guess but maybe one of those shots to the head was because he turned to run after the initial shots or his body turned after being shot. Just a guess but I'm betting he also sold drugs and was protecting his corner. Just a guess but those cameras rotate and may have been facing the other direction. Just a guess but if you don't point a gun at someone else it decreases your chance of being shot by both police and citizens. Just a guess!!!!!!!!

Actually the food is not bad, it's local and the article is kind of ridiculous, I have been there twice and neither time did we go to see the waitresses, we went for a quick beer and some food.

So the gazette wants to glorify this young man? Do interviews to find some good things. Yet people seem to disregard the fact that he had an illegal handgun in his wasteband. Since when is that acceptable. So apparently this great father has a history of displaying this illegal handgun to numerous people trying to protect his block. Since when is this acceptable behavior? How did it become ok to take this kind of justice into your own hands much less point it at trained police officers. This is a tragedy for sure. It's terrible that children have to grow up without a father. Let's not forget the fact that his actions, which have been glorified here, caused trained police officers to respond as trained. It's unfortunate that society and this paper want to continue to justify the actions of violent criminals and crucify the officers who react to those actions.
