This guy doesn't know if he's coming or going. He listens to all the wrong people. Too bad he had potential but no one has confidence in him now.

Must be time for a Tony Elacquas Obit update.

BLACKs are very, very averse to work of any kind. The BLACK's most prominent anatomical feature, after all, its oversized buttocks, which have evolved to make it more comfortable for your BLACK to sit around all day doing nothing for its entire life. BLACKs are often good runners, too, to enable them to sprint quickly in the opposite direction if they see work heading their way. The solution to this is to *dupe* your BLACK into working. After installation, encourage it towards the field with blows of a wooden club, fence post, baseball bat, etc., and then tell it that all that cot belongs to a white man, who won't be back until tomorrow. Your BLACK will then frantically compete with the other field BLACK to steal as much of that cot as it can before the white man returns. At the end of the day, return your BLACK to its cage and laugh at its stupidity.

Now they want more for equipment in todays news.

Antiquated technology plagues local police departments

Technology that once was top-notch for the New Hartford Police Department is crumbling.

The camera that used to take mug shots of suspects and upload them to a department database has not worked for months. Officers started taking the pictures with a digital camera hoping that once they were uploaded, the face would be paired with the right file.

A video recording system, integral in the interviewing process, has started to show its 10-plus years. To replace it, the department would have to spend at least $4,000 — money that Chief Michael Inserra said it doesn’t have.

“There’s no fluff in our budget as it is,” he said, adding that these expenses were not included in his budget because they couldn’t be predicted.

Antiquated technology and limited funds to modernize it is a story that several local police departments have gotten used to telling. Municipal leaders say they are doing what they can with their cash-strapped budgets to help, but public safety officials say it’s not enough.

“Here’s the choice you have to make: either raise the taxes to supply the police department, or you have to cut down on the amount of services we can provide,” said Utica Police Chief Mark Williams, whose department has seen cuts in personnel and vehicles this year because of a struggling budget.“No one wants either thing.”

Technology has become integral to the workings of a police department, whether the public sees it – such as bullet-resistant vests or squad cars – to the processing tools used to book suspects. But some pieces of equipment cost thousands of dollars the departments don’t have, prompting them to ask from other sources.

Police agencies across the state have discovered that technology that once was top of the line has deteriorated, and updates and repairs can be costly and random, said Mark Spawn, director of research and training for the New York State Association of Chiefs of Police.

“In my experience, the state has realized that in order to advance the latest in technology, a lot of this equipment is beyond the typical means of the specific department,” he said.

New Hartford Town Supervisor Patrick Tyksinski said he would talk with Inserra to discuss the department’s budget. He said he was optimistic that they could shuffle some budget lines to make up for the upgrade costs.

“From what I understand, it’s not a huge cost and we should be able to pick it up when (Inserra) can see what he may be able to save money on,” Tyksinski said.

Though Inserra said he is planning on speaking with the Town Board, there is not much room in his budget. On Friday, Inserra said the department decided to use a $20,000 grant from the state’s Division of Criminal Justice Services to replace its suspect processing equipment.

The new equipment, however, will not be available for a few months. The department will need to continue taking photos with a digital camera, and he already has cut back on funds that would have gone toward new Tasers and ammunition for his force.

Grant competition plays into being able to buy new equipment. The New Hartford and Utica departments lauded grants that provide new technology, but more organizations applying for the same amount of money decreases the chance of getting a new squad car or updating computer systems.

Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri said the city has been proactive in looking for similar grants, and recognizes that his police department has been working with less-than-necessary funds.

“The reality is that some of these items will eventually need to be part of the budget,” said.“You can’t shun that responsibility indefinitely; a band-aid solution is not going to hold up.”

Williams said most of the budget dedicated to updating equipment has come through grants, not the city. But public safety, he said, should be a higher priority for officials when coming up with the budget.

“We all get it; you’re trying to do more with less, but it gets to a point where you need the tools to do your job,” he said.“We owe this to the public.”

That's what happens when getting as many of your friends and family on the payroll is your priority.

In a private business, you plan and budget for things like this but since it's the upstate government freakshow the normal things a responsible business owner has to do to eat every year.

I smell a big push for some new tax or increase to buy more crap for all the layers on layers of public safety agencies again. Every week these people are trying some new sob story to justify another increase and more spending.
