How many of these charges actually stick. Remember me I had an ex. boyfriend that was caught in a drug ring a couple years back and if you were to do a recent story on this character you'll find that he's actually do pretty well for someone who's been in trouble for a good part of his young adult life and beyond.
I also hear he's getting married and after the arrest was able to keep his well paying job at a dairy producing product company there in cheektawaga.
It's all an illusion as to who gets time and who doesn't. Someone like my ex. who's family has connections with the DA's office and comes from a family of wealth in all probability will never see the hard hand of the law.
As for me I've had to leave an area that I grew up in due to the numerous harassment and threats I would recieve from people I never even knew. Had no clue what was going on considering that I was not even living in the NY state at the time of the arrests.
All I can say is that I guess it does pay to be a bad boy and the drug arrests just bring in revenue for the state. So Mayor Dyster stop patting yourself on the back and your comrades at the mob squad or I mean the mod squad because as someone who got the short end of the stick from the judicial system all I can say is "Go tell it on the mountain" because your words just don't reflect the realism of the facts.

Main Street is deplorable. This should be the focus of your revitalization target!

Do you think if I came back that any of the companies in that region that paid more then minimum wage would consider hiring me or will these companies get an anonymous call warning them not to hire me ahead of time. Or the warm reception I'll recieve with all the ludasy of the constant fake coughs when I enter a room. Sounds crazy not at all these are intimidation tactics used to break a persons will and confidence and I can't forget their mental state. It's funny how this very tactic has made its way where I live now.
God forbid she can't outstage her former drug dealing boyfriend and her more successful siblings.
I feel for Niagara Falls because you've got a group of criminal conspirators determined to keep Niagara Falls in a state of disrepair.
Heres an example the Transportaion Authorites got rid of some toll booths to supposedly save commuters in toll fare but at the same time raised the prices of the existing toll booths still operating. I remeber when it was as low as 20 cents to cross a toll now I hear its 2.00 dollars a pop and they also raised bus fares by over 50 percent. The last time I took the bus it was 75 cents from La Salle to the downtown sector. I hear its as high as 5 dollars now.

One last thing how many well paying jobs that had more then 10 employees working there have been created in that region.
Mayor Dyster if your looking to make improvements start with jobs that can pay the bills put food on the table be used for entertainment and other consumerable goods and still be able to put money away for a rainy day.
You seem like a smart man and I'm sure if you can keep the lightbulb in your head from blowing and make sound decisions that won't shortcircuit the life of that lightbulb you'll figure a better way of life for your community.

Sorry dad. You've asked me to stop making trouble but I guess I've just been conditioned to be this way.
To suppress ones voice is to close the gates of democracy. Once it's gone it'll be hard to get it back.

I grew up in niagara falls ,just visited there recently and driving around looking at the city almost made me cry. still no mega mall on the east side,north side looks like crap,whirlpool/deveax area in ruins, even pine ave and lasalle area is gone not to mention the streets and sidewalks,i was afraid to drive for fear i might ruin my shocks and axle.how can the city politicions live there and not see how ugly the place has become.where"s the money from tourism and casino going ,certainly not in fixing up the city. I too pray to GOD to breath life back into the area ,because the city counsel is not doing a thing.
