In all my many years a can't recall so many headlines and news stories about the DA's office. McNamara must have some really good friends in the media. Shame on all of you media people for being so obviously politically bias. You media people should all be ashamed of yourselves; you have a responsibility to be fair and you're failing miserably. But what else is new?....Just one more reason why young people are running out of Utica like patrons at a fire in a movie house.

Actually I think this was likely leaked by the PD to make Julian and Pylman look bad???

I don't know if it necessarily makes them look bad, but it is strange that all of these investigations are now being brought to the DA by Pylman. Is he trying to make himself look better after the Franco fiasco? Is does make you wonder why all these things are suddenly popping up around election time.

Punchy; You seem to have the 411 on the 911 most of the time. What is up with the investigation of the PBA Finances by the Feds.? Also what about the investigation into monies being spent for personal use like a birthday party in Saratoga Springs?

How about the embezzlement by a PD Officer that resigned? Did he pay the city back as part of the resignation deal?

I couldn't agree more, mistake, after mistake, after mistake. Mike thinks he the new "Teflon Don". Mike you better wise up and keep your nose out of local politics, Sherry never got involved and he lasted over 20 years in Congress. Don't you have like 10 other counties in your district, are you as interested in who gets elected there as you are here? Do you even know who is running in the other counties? I bet they feel slighted that you are working Oneida County and not busting your ass for them. Oh thats right, you didn't grow up with any of them and you didn't turn your office over to anyone there. You see Mike, these elections are becoming more about you then the candidates running. Not a good idea if you ask me.

As far as I know, those investigations are ongoing.
The only resignation I know of was by an Officer that forged a grade from a class that he was taking that the PD was paying for. Did not involve money, unless the PD wanted the money back that they paid for the class he was taking.

My understanding is he withdrew early from the class and got the cash (refund) from the school. Meanwhile the city paid due to a forged instrument (manuscript) provided by the officer showing a passing grade. In reference to the PBA investigation.

Funny that members of the PBA have been "leaking" the information on these investigations in a feable attempt to make the Chief and the administration look bad. I thought the purpose of the PBA was to help the Officers they represent. Boy do they eat their owm down there or what.

way to go bobo. Can anyone explain why it is breaking news on the OD web site, and probably front page news tomorrow, that the Oneida County DA issued a press release that the Whitesboro PTO member/president stole 1500 and was arrested AUGUST 30TH. Hello, why was this not news on August 31st? Oh yeah, the election would have been two+ months away. Just like Arcuri's press releases that murder is bad and babies are cute and all of the other crap that passes as a "position" or "accomplishment" by the golden boy
why not

According to the news the father of the girl filed a complaint with the da's office. I don't think it is much work to make the Chief look bad. How many cops have to a commit a crime before anyone calls for this guy's resignation?

The article in the paper about the Mayor said the fax machine at City Hall has been humming at a fast rate. Why is anyone suprised when the incumbents use their position to try and sway votes? After the election we won't hear from them again, which suits me fine.

Sometimes Truth is Stranger Than Fiction. Lets go back 18 mos. to when the women stole over 100,000$ from family nurturing center and the woman was never arrested. I wonder how much the agency has recovered?

I guess she timed her crime--or the discovery of her crime--better than others. You never know what crimes you prosecuted--or failed to prosecute, will come back to bite you in the ass at election time. Hello, Desiree Case story. One of these days the real story will come out instead of the spin that "mike arcuri did the ethical thing and scott is so proud to be part of it". Speaking of truth, the truth would make your head spin. Maybe if someone asked nicely...

I'm not surprised that the incumbents (read Julian and McNamara) use their position to try and sway votes, I'm surprised that the majority of the public don't seem to realize what the OD is doing. Can YOU explain why an August 30th arrest is a) released now and b) described as a news alert?

Wow of all the scenarios I never thought of that one. You know last week someone told me Meier wanted his old job back and now it all makes sense.

Finally!!! Atleast someone gets it. Arcuri has clearly shown that he nothing more than a power hungry hoodlum. How in the hell did he get elected? Oh, thats right, he slid in during a MAJOR Democratic sweep and played the pretty boy Mike card. Trust me, Mike will NEVER last as long as Boehlert. Sherry knew not to meddle in local politics. Mike has only been there a couple months and is already eating his own.
Didn't Julian support Arcuri last year? Yup, and now Mike is trying to take him out. And he went after Mello Testa? Not a good idea.
Maybe Bob Julian is stepping down from the bench to take a stab at Mike next year? Hmmmmmm.

This is obviously a feeble attempt by the Mayor and Chief to make the PBA look bad. "Oh they endorsed Roefaro, look how baaaaddddd they are...." This truly shows the lack of leadership that this City and the Police Department has under a Laundryman's watch
