Hell the mickyville cops sell half the beer they get back to their underage friends.some of them drink with kids underage, smith is one of the worst half the cops in town are just ex juvies.
sit on central ave and watch a speed trap for awhile kids will race by their buddy in the cop car doing 50 and wave and the cop waves back and two minutes later the cop pulls over some one else for doing 38mph. I wonder what they do with all the drugs they take from the kids??????

It's all who you know in mecanicville If you have friends in power you can get away with anything if not they throw the book at you. those kids probably didn't pay off the arresting cop

Please! this is a joke,,, if someone is going to drink they are going to drink... cutting down on house parties means increase in parties in the middle of the woods and more dangerous places.... if you want to solve underage drinking then get rid of the drinking age and leave the kids alone...

Hey gman1
You are the kind of person who trash talk Police Officer's until something happens to you! Then you want a Police Officer to drop everything to take care of your problem.
If you don't like the Police Officers in Mechanicville - move to Albany, Schenectady or Troy - your pick looser!
