Pennsylvania Troopers are equally professional and courteous.

I want to root for the police, I really do; but when some a-hole flies by me, nearly hits my car orRead More is tailgating and I pass a cop who does NOTHING... It really diminishes my faith. They [not all but some] pull people over for bullshit and pull the power trip on innocent individuals who truly made mistakes or non-threatening/harmful offenses. But where the hell are they when the real risks are on the road??? How about they keep their patrols going for the crappy drivers EVERYDAY, and not just some appointed safety weeks.

Instead of calling it "Speed Week" or some other catchy tune, why not just call it what itRead More really is "Power Trip Week".

No trial, just get this loser off the streets. 20 year prison sentence would be a good start.

I wonder when they plan on putting the CIA on trial for conspiracy to distribute these drugs...orRead More when they plan on going after the big pharma companies that are the main buyers of the product they're trying to get rid of. With everything the way it is, it is hard to believe that big government and big pharma is not colluding to produce huge profits at the expense of the addicts they cultivate. Look up zohydro...a drug ten times stronger than oxycontin. We have enough problems with oxy, why would you multiply that problem by ten?

this is what has to happen border patrol and customs step it up, there is an extreme amount ofRead More heroin in this county how come? We are losing our children, it is one of the worst addictions to break. We must open our eyes!

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.

what kind of salvage animal would do something like this?
Hamburger January 15, 2014 at 04:45 pm
This is a terrible story, but please don't make the assumption that the perpetrator works in theRead More Salvage business. That would be unfair to all of the honest and hardworking salvage workers out there.

I gather the victim knows the assailant? Hopefully he will be caught soon as he is on camera! ThankRead More goodness he missed an artery.

I'm incredibly saddened that we as a nation are continuing to allow this to happen. The gun lobby inRead More their interest to make money and keep their guns is preventing real legislation that would save so many lives. Like so many scenarios in this country, it's a frustrating situation.

William Bratton is a POS! He got some serious racial hangups about People of Color; he is on recordRead More as having publicly stated he believes Latinos/Blacks are the biggest crooks in NYC. No one ought to forget Bratton's assaults against the Black community span three states and two decades. Some of his attacks against Black folks include:One, in 1989 Bratton while a top cop in Boston ordered the arrests of 300 Black men after a white man named Charles Stuart falsely claimed a Black man robbed him & killed his wife. Two, in 1993 while Chief of the NYC Transit Police--and later while NYPD Police Commissioner Bratton started the stop and frisk policy that targeted Blacks.Three, In 1994 Bratton tried to cover up the shooting of an on duty Black NYC Transit cop named Desmond Robinson by off duty white NYPD cop named Peter DelDebbio. The latter shot the former in the back several times. Bratton slipped DelDebbio into the hospital with then Mayor Giuliani & a NY Daily News photographer & illegally photoed a comatose Robinson and the NYDaily Newser wrote up the encounter on a front page article "I forgive You" falsely claiming the comatose Robinson woke up and greeted DelDebbio warmly with forgiveness. DelDebbio was later convicted after trial of assault & NYC also paid Robinson a $3 million settlement. Four, Bratton in 2009 Bratton went to Los Angeles with his racist attacks on L.A.'s black population that is well documented i.e. bad shootings, 900,000 stop and frisk of Black folks, etc. DiBlasio with his pick of Bratton already sold out Black folks. History will repeat itself!

Let me envision the thought process here...4 idiots sitting around talking about how they need moneyRead More and decide robbing a liquor store would solve their problem Of course idiot no 1 says he is gonna wear the whitest sneakers he can along with a distinctive multicolored jacket featuring white cause he was the chosen lookout and wants to look good for work the other 3 jackazzes, not to be outdone, decide to wear jackets with distinctive lettering so they can be more easily identified on camera as they leisurely stroll through the store.I cant help but laugh at these dummies and cant wait to see what they are wearing for their perp walk!

Two idiots too old to be stealing anything. I couldnt steAl from God's house just for fear of hisRead More vengeance. These two obviously dont feAr God at all. Hope they are caught soon... A disgrace!

Where are the 300 angry white people who protested the recent death of 9 year old LucianRead More Merryweather or where are the scores of whites who protested about some Jews over in Crown Heights being "knocked out"? Are they preparing their protest rallies about this murder of an elderly Black man, one Clifford Hubbard aged 66 years old? White people's collective non-action confirms what I have been saying all the long about selective outrage by many white folks in Green Hill and beyond. I urge all white folks to call the NYPD's 88th Police Precinct at 718-636-6511 and ask to speak to Inspector Scott Henderson. Please insist he lead the 88th Detective Squad to capturing Mr. Hubbard's killer(s). While you have the good Inspector on the phone, please ask him why the 88th Detective Squad has yet to solve the August 2013 slaying of two teenagers in Fort Green Park. I strongly feel if the victims were white the NYPD pressure would be unrelenting and the killer(s) would be caught by now. The non-response of white folks to Mr. Hubbard'd slaying confirms what I have been posting about for a long time, namely that the outrage depends on the race, social standing and economic class of the victim. When I posted such comments following the death of Lucian Merryweather many white people got offended. I guess the truth hurts--doesn't it?
Jon November 24, 2013 at 04:35 pm
Is not only whites who pick and choose who to protest for, it's also the black community and theirRead More so call activists. Where is Rev. Al & Jesse? Unless there is money to be made they will not show up. Our minority communities are also to blame because we let this continue to happy. We don't help or say what we know to assist the police. That old policy of "I don't want to be a snitch or a rat" has to stop.

The people have spoken on "Stop and Frisk.". When weapons-related crime rates start goingRead More up, don't sit back and scratch your head saying, "What happened?" Smart move New York.

Dear Mr. Hampton: Please STOP using the word BODEGA! Some of us find it offensive as other suchRead More establishments are described as 'grocery stores' or 'health food stores' or 'fruit stands', etc. The only such stores referred to as BODEGAS are those stores run by Latinos. Please tell us what is a BODEGA?
