He's a fine young boy. Who didn't have a rifle in their backseat at 20? Banned from mall and did not know about. Sounds like a slogan on a tee shirt. Notice I did not say anything about the cops so don't assume you know what my opinion is. He and lawyer will make their money so that is all that matters IMO.

Shocking. Money time for the lads with hidden camera phone. I recall bother viral cop video. The cop asked the driver and passenger to get out of car. They did not comply and requested the cop's supervisors name and phone number. The cop then broke the window and tazed the person. Does not seem like anyone complies with a cops request anymore and is filming the event.

iPhones are a game changer. Everyone has a camera. The kid at end of video had a really good chuckle to camera. That was the giggle of a young man with dollar signs in his eyes.

Expelled. Jail time. Or if parents have a lot of money no jail and suspension at school.

Tyson sounds like a nice dog - jumping out the window and helping to kill the dog walking by. How about a microchip in the McKearns brains for acting like selfish, stupid, and inhumane people? The reality is you know these people will end up buying some other nice dogs regardless of what happens. It honestly is annoying to even read this article. These people must love the attention they are getting. I agree with the judge. It's a show.

Schenectady's chances of changing the law when it appears most municipalities are already in compliance appears to be a tough climb. The best they could hope for in my opinion is that retired officers do not get their pension amount lessened in addition to paying back any monies. Maybe there is a statute of limitations with regard to this? The harsh reality is the comptroller's interpretation of the law as well as the fact that a private establishment is paying wages and NOT future pension obligations when hiring a police officer. Those 2 things would appear hard to overcome. But I'm not a lawyer.
