I refuse to buy the Poughkeepsie Journal ever again. They do a front page story on the pub crawl which will fill the liberal agenda. They wanted to stop the pub crawl for years, If it was to raise money for same sex marriages,they be all for it.

The Journal refuses to cover the city of Beacons waste of money on a sewer project on Spring valley and Churchill st. The building in question get large amounts of sewage in the basement and 1st floor after big rains or fast melt offs and it by far not the first time. Before the owner of record owned the building. The building Department, city Engineer and the former owner new about the problem ( HE SHOULD NEVER HAVE GOTTEN A C.O.). Now under New York State LAW you have to disclose all when selling realty
(real property or real estate). That being said I would think the last owner would be responsible for not telling the owner of record the problem. If he did tell him the problem, then the city should not be responsible for the problem.

The footing drains, tank and all the other work they have done in the past for this property

This is just my opinion! just the way I see it!

the word on the street is that the cops overreacted and hurt innocent people in retaliation for not getting the the pub crawl donation of ten thousand dollars they wanted. the cops actually beatup tasered and arrested people for video taping them sick their dogon innocent bystanders. we need another FBI investigation into thier civil rights violations.

This comment is for Greg-I have attended pub crawl many many times. Every year I have a blast. I do not drink too much... and myself and my crew have a great time. I am not from Beacon and I go and present myself in an adult manner. I do not think it's a matter of where people came from but a matter of people being there who drink way to much and can not tolerate their beer or liquor.

Stephanie you are correct, almost half of the people arrested were from Beacon. There were way too many minors and way too many drunks. Sure it's for a good cause every year but over the years it has just gotten too big! It was fun while it lasted.

Pub crawler keep your eyes open for a new organization called Pub Crawlers for a safe and free beacon. We will be organizing soon to vote out any beacon politician who doesn’t support the Pub Crawl and doesn’t support an investigation into police brutality.

Many of us pub crawlers are not registered to vote, so please register as soon as possible. Most elections in beacon are settled by a margin of under ten votes, if we get organized we could push the election anyway we want. If I remember correctly mayor gold ran against an Antelek in the last election. Antelek was in favor of the pub crawl.

crawler4ever - since you are from Wappingers, why don't you contact your politicians to start up a Pub Crawl there. It isn't all about the policitians choices. the pub crawl is now dangerous to the public!! and the police!! fun time but too much underage drinking and too much open containers all throughout the city. and the evening hours of the pub crawl is just way too crazy and our small police dept can't handle it.

well pub crawl is on for 2010 and the police thugs from last year will be even worse. they have already been bragging about what thy are going to do to pub crawlers.
every pub crawler should keep there cameras on the police so there will be proof of their brutality. might not hurt to arm to protect yr self. bring pepper spray for the K9 units.

get people who will not be drinking to tape the event to catch any thing that might happen. then not only post on you tube or other such sites. bring it to the news both local and network should look good for the bpd to be on nbc or cnn news useing abusive force just a idea
