Selective law enforcement suggests the word law is misapplied when whim is the sense conveyed. ItRead More seems there is no cause for surprise that people have no respect for the law because it is hard to respect injustice which is law unevenly and selectively applied. If HSBC and other banks can launder money for drug cartels and terrorist groups with no consequence, why should we anticipate unsafe drivers to expect consequence applied to them? ***Spoiler Alert*** The train of logic which is hauling an uneven load of distinctions that result in only one being punished when both are criminal ends at disaster junction.

Yep, and while we're at it, how about those illegally tinted car windows, huh? Can't tell if theRead More dumb driver is even looking in your direction. And why don't they look BOTH ways when making a LT? Guess they didn't take Drivers Ed? And what about those fools who don't turn their lights on at dusk? Disrespect for our traffic laws is endemic, and getting worse...

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 !
Ryan Murray April 15, 2014 at 08:52 pm
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?

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

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.
Happynewyorker March 11, 2014 at 10:47 am
Okay now try the Bronx River Parkway. State troopers will find tons of speeders, it always seems toRead More be a raceway than a parkway.

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.

@Lanning - in which town / city / village did this take place? There are lots of Central avenues inRead More Westchester County and without a place name, it's tough to assess the relevance of this article to "my" patch.
Lanning Taliaferro (Editor) February 28, 2014 at 02:47 pm
Thanks, RyeBob, for the headsup. For clarity I added "through Hartsdale" to this sentence:Read More Traffic through Hartsdale was shut down from Central Avenue to Hartsdale Village after the 2:30 p.m. explosion. And as for relevance, I think when more than 1000 people lose power because of a manhole explosion in lower Westchester that it's news all over lower Westchester. That's my opinion, anyway!

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 .

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.

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.

amerpatriot February 2, 2014 at 12:10 pm
Most people can tell the difference between news and political propaganda these days. ReadershipRead More has dropped off. Ad income is off because readership is off. The attacks on the licensed gunowners pretty much was the end of the line. No one needs a news organization that seeks to bring harm to people under false pretenses. Buh-bye Journal News.

Funny how it's always the NYPD that everyone says is abusive or corrupt. These little town andRead More village departments have more abuse then anywhere No one ever has the balls to challenge them. Keep paying your high taxes for over paid empty suit cops
