Such a sad story. Makes me mad too. The NRA would say that people shoot people, but if they don'tRead More have guns. My condolences to the familes. And I would like to think that anyone planning to vote for an opponent of gun control, remember this tragedy before going to the polls.

AND...my objection to our Police is that they leave their car motors running - polluting for ages -Read More WAY past the County three minute limit (which no-one seems to know about anyway). Does it really take so long to start up the motor for a chase, ticket, etc.? Rockalnd law is 3-minute idle limit - ice, snow, cold, or heat

WE THE PEOPLE pay for the gas. observed a police car in front of PIERMONT VILLAGE HALL running andRead More came back the other way a half hour later and the POLICE CAR WAS STILL RUNNING. WHAT A WASTE !

I think it's great! Should be a priority everywhere, not just the highways. Might make someRead More enemies here, though that's not my intent. A thought though; how do police give tickets for using mobile devices when they themselves use them while driving without hands-free devices?

I have a friend who was a Navy Seal. He said most people would be surprised how poorly many copsRead More perform with their weapons. They really don't go to the range and practice enough, to be able to pull a weapon out under stress and make a clean shotwhere accuracy is critical.

If the Board asked for a investigation and the findings are what is in the above statements why isRead More this member Young still in the membership and how does the Village of Tarrytown allow him to respond to taxpayers homes . He needs to be removed reading the above report before history repeats itself. VERY DISTURBING

I also suggest that [the defendant] not be reinstated, as he appears to be unable to control hisRead More behavior despite repeated reprimands.

Join us for a presentation by Dr. Paul Curtis, Associate Professor in the Department of Natural Resources at Cornell University…. He will discuss the latest research in deer management and control of other nuisance wildlife such as woodchucks, rabbits and even the growing coyote population in suburban communities."

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.

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 .

Maybe this will affect you when someone breaks into your home and steals your valuables in order toRead More buy drugs. When something is labeled an epidemic it means that it impacts society as a whole not just the individuals who 'choose' to do drugs. I certainly don't have the answers and didn't participate in the Town Hall, but if all it did was educate people about the issue, then it's a start. At least we're not burying our heads in the sand.

And I'll be real curious to see what Hollywood's reaction is to this problem vis a vis the Oscars.Read More Having lost 2 of their own to heroin overdoses in the past year, I would love to see them be proactive in taking a stand on this topic. But I doubt they will.

Is it possible to rape a call girl ?
Lanning Taliaferro (Editor) February 28, 2014 at 08:52 am
Read the DA's description of the second attack and you'll see: When the victim told the defendantRead More that she would not have sex with him without a condom, the defendant attacked her, punching her in the head and then pressing a knife to her neck telling her that he would kill her if did not comply with what he wanted. A struggle ensued and the defendant choked her leaving serious bruise marks to the side of her neck. The defendant then threatened the victim with a handgun and sexually assaulted her.
