I saw those same smiles as you said when the news conf. started also. Both the police and fire chiefs were laughing. Nice
If he was laughing at the news conference I can only imagine the laughter and jokes as that place burned with the guy inside. He couldn't even read his own press release. We pay him how much to be the top cop? If he's the top I can only imagine what is at the bottom.

Just watched Chief Parisi's news conference, was that really a smirk to start off the conference ?. What a bumbeling idiot. The residents of Ilion should be ashamed of the so called police chief. He could not even read the sheet of paper he had with him, UNBELIEVABLE !!!!!!!
A person lost their live in this tragedy. Lets do the time line, the police respond at 7pm and 7 hours later there is a fire with an obviously distraught person, did they even think about a shock grenade to end the standoff.
Nice work IPD !!!
Yep, I thought I saw a little smirk too. It's when you say to yourself, WTF did I just see that or what. More than likely he wasn't smirking at the situation, but for the love of God he should have been aware that he was on camera!! It really makes you wonder.

I also saw that!!! Made my stomach turn!!! They are no way smart enough to handle these situations!! When they went up to the door and they were like o he shut the door wouldnt come out. WTH?? Why didnt they use smoke bombs something? O he threw hammers at them....hahaha you stupid jerks..you have guns!! Look what you did to Brian O'Connor, you stormed right in and shot him..no negotiating. Why ???? Because Ilion cops are a$$e$!!!! I could go on...but wont. RIP Gene. Thoughts and prayers go out to your family..all because the pigs F-Upped!!!!

Considering how the IPD screwed up with Brian O'Connor, how can people not raise questions about this instance?
To review, they had a guy with guns, and instead of stopping him outside his house they tried to take him in his home.
Calling the NYS Police, who know what they are doing probably never entered their minds....

You obviously require some serious help. You posts on many forums with mindless rants. Please seek professional help, as reading your posts and ramblings I fear for your well being and that of others around you. I'm serious.

Well I see all of the faceless, hiding behind your computer experts are out today.
I never knew we had so many unknown experts in Ilion, god we are so lucky to have you Topix posters out there looking out for us.
And tomorrow you'll be a dpw expert, education expert or convenient store clerk expert.
Living the life of a Topix Critic Expert, that would be my goal in life!
What a bunch of damn losers. There's not a one of you that knows crap, only trying to feel important in you own mind.
The police were idiots..........imagine laughing at the news conference?? Wow what a guy..!! Here the poor man died and they were laughing. Karma ...thats the name of the game. God will get the ones deserving .......sick and sad...
