Police investigators need to delve deeper into the platoon Christmas party that involved strippers, Public Safety Commissioner Wayne Bennett said. He received a final report from investigators this week, but sent it back because he wanted more information. He looked it over with Chief Brian Kilcullen and formulated a list of additional investigation they wanted done, Bennett said. Among those aspects: he wants more people interviewed. “We’re looking for some additional statements,” he said. “We ...

Are we still beating this dead horse? This goes to Wayne Bennett too, these are adult's that are not owned by the Gazette or the Police Department in Schenectady. I will guarantee you that every one of you hypocrites criticizing these guys have been to a bachelor party that had strippers. What these officers do on their own time at a private function is not anyones business, especially Kathleen Moore and the Gazette. Give it a rest, these useless stories have done more damage to Schenectady than 100 gang members, think about that before you write your next story.

If uninvited wives 'complained,' this event is more about the false sense of entitlement first responders may adopt. It highlights the potential marital/relationship problems police personnel can have. I think i read there was a high percentage of younger, rookie participants. If so, less time and resources should be spent investigating and splitting hairs, and more time and resources invested in insuring officers receive necessary supports to keep their relationships congruent.

If they are always on duty, they should be getting paid 3x the amount they do now, right?

The bigger question is where did Kathleen Moore get this information about a private party at a private venue and did she obtain this information legally? She is making many accusations here by saying that there are wives of Police Officers complaining, I don't believe it...We have a reporter for a newspaper putting careers on the line and as a taxpayer I want to know where this information came by and if it was gotten legally and if there is any proof to back up these accusations, if not I would call for the termination of this reporter.

Anyone who doesn't believe Kathleen Moore is a careful, accurate reporter should ask Steve Raucci for his opinion!

City Council members also said they want a far more professional party — something similar to a wedding reception, rather than a “frat party,” as Councilman Carl Erikson put it.

Hey Carl, a private party being attended by private citizens is none of your business, period.....The city did NOT pay for this party, it was not a sanctioned police party and it is no ones business, period.... We don't live in Comunist China, yet.

We all know her source, her source was the basis for another anti police article not that long ago...
