sounds like the case is going to get dismissed, before it even gets started.

Albany cops remain mostly out of control punks and bullies with handguns and bad attitudes. Hopefully, Chief Crow can straighten the rank & file out, by taking some control from the selfish union that does not care much about how the taxpayers are treated by the cop membership.

A friend of mine witnessed a take down of a punk. The apd was horrible to this person. Screaming, cussing at him, all the bad attitude. Very un professional. Then the cops cuss and yell at the mother. Don't know what the kid did.

If you are Black and have an interaction with APD it is guaranteed to be unpleasant. Cops in many cities treat Black men poorly, but Albany police are among the most brutal.

Are you sure this De Von Callicutt was a taxpayer? Maybe sales tax on the money he robbed people to get.

Well maybe they deserve it. I am in Albany everyday and if two days in a row go by without me being harrasssed by a black youth it is amazing. I am constantly being bombarded for cigarettes, a dollar, or busfare. Maybe once a month I will be accosted by a white person in this manner.

If black people want to be treated with respect pull up your damn pants and start acting like part of the human race and not some parasite.

They need to get the right pant size. And buy a belt.
