The guys in the seventh work hard. Are there moments when people need to take a joe break or get a bathroom break, sure. The police job is 99% boredom and 1% action the likes of which none of us would want. We need to tip our hats to these guys. Jim

Hey Dave. You have to complete 2 years of college before you are qualified to take the Police Test. Then, you must have a degree to get a ptomotion.
Just to be fair 911. Comment #39. "I don't believe your a lawyer". Your should be you're. Not a big deal.

Whoops. I hit the wrong key. The word ptomotion should be promotion.

Thank goodness for those men and women willing to serve as our policemen. It is a dangerous job and they deserve to be paid accordingly. When a crime happens, they respond immediately, usually after the crime has already happened because they can't guess where and when they'll be needed next. So no complaining, puhleeze.

Wherever did you dig up that fraudulent phrase,'Blind faith is dangerous?' Is this another unsubstantiated Davism. How about all the good things conjured up when you say,'A leap of faith', instead. No guns for retirees? What have you got against seniors, especially those who served on the force for 20-25 years. They are more likely to handle guns safely and sensibly than other, younger officers.

follow through--youve been quite consistent with your support for police.
perhaps you too are involved with the FORCE.

i believe seniors are less agile and responsive than younger folk.
certainly handling a gun in a stressful situation is better off in the hands of ACTIVE participents.
leap of faith for an armed retiree?? surrrrre

The problem is that law abiding citizens can't carry guns period. If retired cops can, then I should be able to. The second amendment gives me that right, I don't care what the socialists that have taken over New York say.

Truth I agree. I don't agree that since retired guys carry them you can. I think you can because the 2nd the amendment allows you too. Retired cops still have to watch their back from old gripes. I used to encourage good hard working people to have a gun in their home. You just have to be safe. If criminals are armed then why can't good people trying to protect their family be armed? Dave only wants criminals to have guns. Retired guys though no way! Dave, I will ask you one last question and then im done with you. You can have the last word like you want. Out of the 35,000 NYPD officers, 2900 NCPD officers, and the 4000 or so Suffolk officers none of them joined to help or make a difference? None are heros? The nypd guys who jumped in the hudson river to save the passengers of the downed helicopter arent heros? Cops who died pulling people from the twin towers arent heros? Cops help the elderly, talk the mentally unstable down, deal with horrific car accidents, only to name a few. All are criminals who are milking the system? Please answer the question and save your donut comments for your 12 year old friends. Thank you.

What would you do, Truth and Dave, if we DID NOT have a police force out there? It's nice to be able to call 911 for any matter, even the threat of teenage vandals on your property. I am NOT a member of the police, but I respect them and am very grateful that they are around to protect and help us.

Dave, you really are a moron. Retired cops have come in contact with hundreds if not thousands of people who would do them harm if given the chance. If retired cops can't carry guns then who can? Criminals? Why aren't you commenting on a criminal having a gun? No you are worried about the guy who legally carries one for more than two decades. You are an idiot ny liberal.
According to his lawyer, the retired NCPD officer who shot the ATF agent never unholstered his weapon his entire career. I have no doubt that within real police departments where real police work is carried out, there are frequent encounters with those who would do them harm. Unfortunately, the NCPD has demonstrated large-scale failures in almost every measurable field; all while remaining the highest paid department in the United States. I'm not anti-police, just pro-competence.

Uh, when did I say anything negative about the Police force? I have no problem with them, but in a place like Nassau County, they investigate and deter crime, but they don't stop it. By the time they are called, the crime has already been committed. I want my rights restored in this socialist state to be able to defend myself and family.

For those that think the Police are the solution and that you will never need to defend yourself or your home in this country, just think about all of the incidents where the police couldn't handle it. We just had a hurricane here on Long Island, what if we had a Katrina where law and order broke down? How about the riots in South Central after the Rodney King verdicts? The police couldn't defend the citizens then either.

I like the police, I have plenty of friends who are in law enforcement, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't have the right to defend myself at anytime. A carry permit shouldn't be so difficult to get especially if you are a law abiding citizen with a perfect record.

If you just got your 2012 Nassau Tax property bill, look at the line item for police services - it makes up more than 1/2 of the line item budget and includes a whopping 21% increase over 2011.

Wow, that is really disturbing. People in general already have a negative mindset toward the NCPD, their 6 figure pay and attitude toward the public. Throw this on top of it and it sounds like a big shakeup is needed in Mineola.
Follow the money.

Wrong! Nassau is by far not the highest paid. The highest paid isn't even in ny. How much are cops worth??

cops are civil servants, with hazerdous duty. Members choose this life for all the perks.
I, for one am tired of footing the bill for all the perks.
there is absolutely no reason for "RETIRED" cops
to carry a handgun!!!

Look at your property tax bill, and see that the portion paid to Nassau County police headquarters - more than 1/2 the line item tax bill - has gone up by over 20% in 2012. The county will collapse before long. Who will buy a house with total taxes between $15-30,000 per year?

"retired cops have to watch their backs from old gripes".
are you refering to all of the time you set up innocent people with lies and made up evidence to send people to court and god forbid to jail?
are you worried some poor soul whose life you have forever changed may want a "word" with you?
i am sure you have no remorse,its par for the course.
i believe some cops start with integrity but all are eventually corrupted.
sorry but no ---cops are not heros.
no guns for retirees.
dont expect everyone to kiss your behind bacause your above us civilians.

You just don't know what the hell you're talking about, Dave. Did you have a bad experience with the police? How can you talk about cops sending perps to jail for no reason? Give us an example.
You call 'all cops' corrupted. That's quite a blanket and inane statement to make to us, lunkhead. Cops are not heroes? Then you don't read the headlines, a funeral for a fallen policeman, leaving behind a wife and three beautiful young daughters whom he will never see graduate college or get married and have his grandchildren. What a blood-curdling rat you are, through and through.
