wow what a surprize a teacher would say those ignorant and anit-american comments. Why dont you try one day in the life of a firefighter or police officer. IT is not our responsibility of questioning authority, and this is a typical comment of an ingorant liberl teacher that cant make it in the "real world". The only place these type of comments are tolerated is in the academic world. Anywhere eles these comments are laughed at.

Yeah, but the bottom line is, is that it is a career. Like the rest of us, it is a career that they chose for whatever reason. And, to perform a job they knew would be dangerous. In many cases this is what draws them in. So, because they place themselves in harms way does not justify their salaries. I know I would put my life in harms way to save another's free of charge. As far as policing the neighborhood, we could all do some of that too if... it wasnt' for knowing that if I were to take out someone because they could cause harm to someone else I would be locked up for life.

Where can you work 180 days per year, get paid at least 60K per year have holiday's weekends summer off and life time health insurance? BEING A TEACHER IN THE UTICA CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT THATS WHERE. Never mind who chooses what society needs law enforcement and no other career in the pragmatic sense does anyone put their lives on the line, the military of course do too and they deserve much much more in compensation,after care and benefits. Teachers especially administrators have it knocked best of all.

Take a lookj at your own words. They are garbage. First, everyday, people put their lives on the line making much less than Police or fireman. Did you read about that young lady that was killed in the car accident a few days ago? Did she ever think she would never go home that night? What about people that work for minimum wage and support familes? The people that are true heros. Bus & Cab drivers that are held up at gun or knife point. Jewlery store owners who are robbed. People that work at banks, etc. These people take risks everyday of their lives. When they die do we have televised funerals? When a family member dies of cancer and suffered years, do we name streets and schools after them? Let's get real. Yes, it is sad to see an officer get shot, however, they choose that life. They get paid very well for most of the time sitting and talking to their girlfriends or mistresses. You see what happened to Spitzer? If people only new the truth about the boys in Blue. No, I have no sympathy for those who are supposed to be our servants. They are cocky people with Badges who think they are above the law.

Four unsolved bank robberies.
Nine unsolved shootings in the past eight weeks alone.
Please tell me more about what a wonderful job they're doing. Do you think giving bonus payments for actually making arrests would perk up their performance a bit?'Cause the whole salary thing sure don't seem to be working.
What the hell are you talking about. Utica has changed. The police used to know the people in the area. Now we are flooded with druggies from NY City, hard to track and find. BRING BACK THE MAFIA. John Gotti kept his area safe. We desperately need a John Gotti to clean up Utica.
Raze Cornhill. Arrest the white girls buying drugs in Cornhill (attention suburban parents). Stop the influx of "refugees". That's why the city is gone.

Absolutely agree. May I just add that many of the cops care and do try, some don't at all- they are just collecting paychecks and counting the years to retirement. That's why it's so important that they be required to live in this City. Don't you love their pat answer when you beg for help and i quote "Don't tell me what my job is." How many of you out there have heard this.

Police officers are not God......they don't have a crystal ball.........they can't solve everything.........they just do the best they can. Don't you think they want people off the streets that are a threat to them and their families? God bless all of them who step out on the streets 8 hours a day. I couldn't do it!

I was reading many of the comments made by newface. Wow, it would be terrible if one of your family members was a police officer and was snuck up on and shot by a local druggie. Many interesting facts came to light during the trial of Officer Lindsey. On of the most interesting was that the dirtbag that killed him said that he was tired of having Lindsey take his drug money away everytime his pockets were full. I thank you officer Lindsey. You obviously were doing your job and doing it well. As far as the amount of money they make...they deserve to make more. Officer Lindseys family will always be in my prayers.

BTW what line of work are you in newface?

Bring back the Mafia? Hell since the 70s the Mafia has been THE major factor in the heroin trade from the mideast to Sicily to the US. As well they all got jealous over the Chinese, Colombians etc getting super rich in the drug trade and they ALL said "f-- u" to the old anti drug traditions and leaped headfirst into the trade. Gotti and his minions were HUGE into coke and heroin as were all the other so called stand up guys. Only reason to bring back the Mafia is to change the crime from non-White to White.

Mafia are all sh-tbags. Nothing but a--hole greedy pieces of S--t.

And by the way, read the facts, Gotti and his crew got into the drug trade in plain disregard for Paulie Castellano's prohibition on any Made Man dealing in drugs.

There is always a problem. There is almost always an answer. Yes most witnesses to crimes do not talk about what they saw. It is either that or mistake what they saw or heard. Yes most jobs are minimum wage. There is always somebody to comment on what else is going on. Everybody is underpaid, overworked, and have an in the box thinking inorder to really fix problems. With police officers that do break laws; the matters are handled internally. This is due to not shaming the integrity of the whole department for ones mistakes. If made public it opens itself upto public scrutiny and we all know how that goes. My question to you all is why are you firing at each other their are bigger problems to fix then what is in a police department.
