You know as much as the NYS Troopers can be pricks, you've got to give them some credit. When theyRead More set up speed traps they get OUT of their cars with radar guns and actually point it at cars, then have a chase car down the road. Unlike most PD's, when they hand you that ticket you have to appreciate the effort that went into it.
Scott Peterson April 18, 2014 at 11:29 pm
In my experiences, the State Police I've encountered in my travels across the country have alwaysRead More displayed a level of courtesy and professionalism I've often found wanting in smaller organizations. I've never encountered a prick as I define the term though were I to include the term to mean one who seemingly allows no exceptions, I could see the term as valid.

Well put definition Scott, seemingly describing Maryland State Troopers to a tee.

Make it life in prison with out possibility of parole. Also put him in general population he willRead More get what is due to him. Inmates don't like child molesters. They will take care of it.

Yes, it is disgusting that people enjoy watching little children being forced into sexual activity,Read More but even worse are the people who produce these videos and pictures....' These are real children and they are being destroyed by the depraved. Of course, there would be no need for child pornography if there was no demand for child pornography. It's just a vicious, evil cycle. Simply tragic.
Joe Malichio April 4, 2014 at 10:55 am
On October 8th, 2009... he should've been locked up for life. Sexual misconduct with a TWELVE YEARRead More OLD BOY. Game over. Our justice system is a joke. It's too bad for our children that people like me aren't in charge.

I was in my car, on the opposite site of the crossing, all happened very quickly, but I think whenRead More she was struck, it was green for us/ cars and she tried to cross with a red light. This is a typical bad habit that most pedestrians coming out of the train have, they are very impatient and try to cross the street even with a red light...

at least now with all the victims getting clothes, Karl (with a K) the registered sex offender willRead More be well dressed when lurking around playgrounds

David Styles March 21, 2014 at 01:44 pm
is this really newsworthy? I feel like this is somewhat intrusive on the mans life. People violateRead More these orders all the time and their names do not make the paper.
Lanning Taliaferro (Editor) March 21, 2014 at 02:03 pm
His name does not appear.
Ross Revira March 21, 2014 at 04:57 pm
If his name does not appear what is the point? If a crime is committed multiple times it should beRead More ignored?

I'm sorry, but it sounds a little bit like racial profiling . This type of action does not takeRead More place on other ethnic holidays . Think about it.
R Rice March 6, 2014 at 07:05 am
Looks like another civil rights violation, force fed into law by executive action, instead ofRead More legislative debate "for the public's safety." Sounds a lot like the justification for NSA spying that no one seems too concerned about, anymore...
DG March 6, 2014 at 02:02 pm
if cops are going to have our personal digital life history at their fingertips, we should also haveRead More access to their personnel files, including complaints like, false arrests, departmental disciplinary actions and proceedings, psychological profiles, and driving and arrest histories. After all, no information is sacred anymore.

OK Paula. Good point in response to my post of March 1. So, I place the following addition to myRead More comment: "Oh poor Kerry. Poor, poor Kerry. Because she has more money than the common transgressor, her name got into the paper. Good, and double good for her. Paula: chill out, before you make yourself sick. This transmission is both "Over" and "Out".

Ask yourselves if this was you and a jury of your peers acquitted you , how and what would you beRead More posting now ? She had a great Attorney and a creative / unusual Defense which the Jury agreed with so case closed . As to names being printed in the Papers , I think everyone's name should be printed as they are potentially a danger to Society . Embarrassement can be a great motivator . Years ago the Media did print names and I was humiliated being one .

Kennedy's have a knack for beating the laws Now death is another story.

I don't understand how the drug that can save a person who overdoses on heron will be a cure forRead More the heron problem. Clearly people are coming from Ct to purchase heroin in our neighborhood. How many are carrying loaded guns? The drug HEROIN needs an undercover police task force to get to the root of the problem. The cure for an over dose is a different issue and should be on hand with all medical staffs and police officers.
Reid Poosikian March 6, 2014 at 02:53 pm
@patina3 the drug (naloxone or something) that is used to save a person ODing isnt meant to be aRead More means to an end of the heroin epidemic. Its a life saving tool for people who have made the choice to use, whether idiotic or not. Someone ODing will have bodily functions and respiratory failure VERY quickly. therefore, if the people with the life saver drug are the users, they will have it on hand and can use it in that short time span the abuser has left, cuz an OD on heroin will kill swiftly. If the law enforcers have it, you run the risk of them not arriving on time, or having the person who should call the authorities being to scared to get in trouble, resulting in an unnecessary death. Bottom line is, people will use and abuse drugs, and they should also be the ones able to save themselves and others, since it is their decision to use, and safer to have on hand than have to wait for an ambulance.

Bonnie you're so right! I dont care how the smoke detectors are wired into the building..they shouldRead More be functional! I still wish the FD well its just a shame that this happened.
NMS February 26, 2014 at 01:47 pm
LOL@ David Styles - you obviously aren't comprehending. If the smoke detectors are hard wired inRead More there's no batteries. They functioned appropriately and alerted dispatch which then sent the call out to the various departments. I'm not sure where the news outlets got the part about them not functioning, because they did.
David Styles February 26, 2014 at 02:18 pm
Thank you NMS, I am only commenting on what was reported. Sounds like you got the inside scoop!

If she weren't a Kennedy, this would be all over. Evidence is circumstantial, so let it rest
Elizabeth Reed February 25, 2014 at 11:39 am
Not generally a supporter but both are very small tablets and could easily be confused - has anyoneRead More ever picked up the wrong bottle for moisturizer - or wrong tube when looking for toothpaste during their morning routine. Ambien is an amnesiac, you have no idea what you are doing if you get out of bed after having taken it.
Guarags30 February 27, 2014 at 08:02 am
That didnt take long... She already is playing the Kennedy card. I guess they just feel they can doRead More whatever it is they want. Like cheat on your wife (most of the Kennedy men), or kill people in car accidents and drive away (Teddy) or the numerous other things they get away with. Anyway wasn't her pills in different containers? That's like me bringing a can of beer to work and saying "oh sorry I thought it was a pepsi"
Pam Green February 23, 2014 at 06:38 pm
Ct- I'm sorry. I was unaware that I was in the presence of an elitist member of academia, in theRead More trenches of the four walls of a classroom. When you seek out the police and falsely report an incident, yes that's a problem. The issue here was being interrogated for a crime and the suspect somehow not being allowed to lie to the police. Not illegal. I thought liberals were supposed to be open minded, not judgmental. Your quote,"Cops want convictions, not truth or what is right." That is a pretty broad brush. Hopefully your students will be open minded enough to think for themselves.
Ct3408 February 23, 2014 at 07:39 pm
Ah, name-calling. What is it about people hating others for simply reading and thinking forRead More themselves? Next time you are involved with a police investigation of a crime, go ahead and lie and see what happens. Obstruction of justice, obstructing governmental administration, etc. But you seem to know the law and think that all police and governmental employees are looking out for you, the citizen. Even when we are in court, we have to deal with the perjury of officers: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/03/opinion/sunday/why-police-officers-lie-under-oath.html
Alex Umrichin February 23, 2014 at 10:20 pm
You can't outright lie to the police if they are in the course of an investigation however there isRead More also no requirement that you say anything at all unless you have an attorney present. It is perfectly legal for police to lie to you, which is a good thing to keep in mind. If you ever feel in the least bit uncomfortable with questions that police are asking it is in your best interests to say nothing at all no matter what kind of threats they may make.
Michael Donovan February 21, 2014 at 10:06 am
Why is it that some of the accused drunk drivers have their name published while others don't?
David Styles February 22, 2014 at 11:53 am
Good question Michael! It is not right that some have their name attached to a DUI and can be easilyRead More discovered on a google search while others are arrested and convicted anonymously.

The basketball coach in Cortlandt got 25 years to life for his sickening acts, why was this piece ofRead More trash issued such a shorter sentence?
P February 22, 2014 at 10:28 am
One word answers all your questions pertaining to why this horrible human only received a 5 yearRead More sentence and it simply comes down to MONEY. I'm sure this asshole had a private practice, made out pretty well and had a 6 figure lawyer on retainer just in case he ran into trouble. For all you outraged, please don't fear, this guy will have an extremely unpleasant 5 years of being passed around and flip flopped.
