Maybe its time for Gibbson and the DA Clark should be heald accountabe for alot of whats going on in Erire Co. As I see it Delano is doing a great job at fixing there screwups.And helping get people out of jail that never should have been there.

I think the suspension of Detective Delano is a slap in the face. There are police offices who back him up and give him credit for what he has done. No, the videos should not have been released and neither should Detective Delano been suspended without pay. To try to cover up the real cause of death of DeJac's daughter is wrong. This women deserves the right to know the real cause of death since it has been proven that she didn't do it. You have 2 examiners with conflicting stories. The fact that Baden has a fantastic resume doesn't make him right. You can get any one to say anything for the right price.

Buffalo is always trying to cover-up their mistakes when someone who has the upper hand is in control. This is why Buffalo is in the terrible shape that it is in now; poor and run down. This is why our younger generation is moving out of the city and why crime is so high.

During an interview on WBEN this morning, McCarthy Gipson stated that Delano was suspended for violating department rules regarding evidence. That is a very valid and just reason that applies to all as essential to maintain discipline and order.
Well then: McCarthy Gipson should be suspended now (and should have been previously) when he lied about living in the City of Buffalo when he was appointed as Commissioner of Police; and Byron Brown should be suspended for lying to the public about his son stealing and crashing the family car & the associated cover up. It seems that the rules and punishment don't apply to those in positions of power in the city of Buffalo!! That is the definition of corruption!!

Delano, has exposed what they have covered for many years. They know who the real killer is, and what killed her. That death certificate is bogus. The truth will come to light...More people should stand for truth, know matter what happens, Jesus Did...Thank
You Delano for doing what Jesus would do...

You are so right they Gibson and Brown should be fired also. Keep up the good work Dennis Delano. And another question why did Gibson reassign the case. Gibson don't want it solved because he will have egg on his face!!!!!!!!!

Detective Delano should part ways with the Buffalo PD whether he is reinstated or not and run for the DA job. He'd have no trouble defeating Clark in the next election.

I thought all comments degrading people or insulting them weren't allowed. Delano's daughter has been way out of line with some of her remarks!FIRE DELANO! After the statements he made today about not respecting his superiors has put him over the line! He should quit if he doesn't want to work or follow ORDERS! He has been setting himself up as judge and jury in just about everything he has been commenting on! IF YOU DON'T LIKE WERE YOU WORK--- FIND ANOTHER JOB AND QUIT YOUR CRYING!

After posting my previous comment, I turn on the tv and see a suspect in a murder case on this station's broadcast showing his polygraph test(which he passed), and then making comments about evidence that they desire will get a murder conviction on a Dennis Donohue(whom I don't know)who was given immunity in one case. That case is over--done--finished! I suggest the windmills this station is tilting at are a little better legally educated then they! All kidding aside does this station consider that putting evidence on tv giving this guy undue exposure and maybe tainting the case of a supposed serial killer! Besides believe it or not Donhue has his side(passed lie detector voluntarily) and I've yet to see his side stated. Maybe it's time that comes about.Doesn't this station have a legal staff.

Delano should be commended for doing the right thing --- Both for the Dejak Family and the city of Buffalo. What exactly is this city afriad of? The truth? Admitting they were wrong? It seems like it takes moree to get the innocent out of jail than it does to get the guilty in. Yet we continue to torture the good guys!! Yeah, why would ANYONE want to leave BUFFALO????

The Buffalo Police Dept became a renegade organization when they went on the parking meter fines spree last year. The Buffalo Mayor and Police Commissioner did nothing to fight the union bosses that condoned the heavy handed police blitz which penalized citizens needlessly and unfairly.
Now,when they stand up and cite Cold Case detective Dennis Delano for insubordination, it does NOT wash with the average citizen because the Buffalo brass has lost its credability with the public.

I visited Buffalo during the parking meter blitz with my son who works at Canisius college. It was a Sunday and he inserted three quarters in a parking meter because even though the fee was NOT required on a Sunday, he felt that the cops could not be trusted.(in issuing a parking ticket). I thought that this was heavy handed and stunk.

My perspective was as a former village Mayor who set up a traffic court in our village and who oversaw the village police dept. Its just an opinion.

Respectfully submitted,
Vince Tampio

I respect all he has done and should be more like Delano He should not be suspended and should get an apology and full pay

I admire all he has done, if he broke a few rules did it for the people

I'm sorry Mr. Gibson and Mr Clark, but it's people like Mr. Delano who actually make a difference in this community! He did what he did, and the outcome was as just as it should have been. I didn't see you Mr. Gibson or you Mr. Clark, work diligently to do THE RIGHT THING HERE. As a matter of fact, Mr. Gibson has knowingly not told the whole truth in his past and our own Mr. Mayor has held back info that a person in his position should have come forward with as soon as it happened. Mr. Clark turned 180* on what he was publicly saying a month ago. Hard to believe Mr. Clark isn't god, isn't it? Bottom line is that Mr. Delano gave someone their life back by FINDING OUT THE TRUTH! He's for justice....probably more-so than Mr. Gibson in my opinion. Don't do something stupid to save face here Mr. Gibson or Mr. Clark, keep the right person, Mr. Delano, on the job....WE WANT HIM THERE!!!

I just hope the death wasn't changed on the certificate, to protect the D.A.'s office if it was found out later, that Donahue killed that woman for whom he is a suspect.If they prove that he killed Crystlann , but was given immunity before all evidence was exposed,this latest murder would never have happened,thus opening a major lawsuit.This just smells of a cover up to avoid another lawsuit.Just remember one thing about Dr. Baden,he testified on O.J.'s behalf,and if you think he was innocent.....than I feel for you.

By participating in this online petition, I am requesting The Buffalo Police Department to come forward and not only reinstate Dennis Delano to full duty on the force but to address the people of the community on this issue.

I wonder if the Buf. P.D. is as quick to prosecute all police infractions. Think of all the parking fines that are not collected because the police do not give tickets to brother officers who park illegally. At the cost of Buffalo parking tickets the value must be in the high hundreds of thousands of dollars. Sounds like grand larceny to me. Think of all the police who run stop signs with no apparent need to do so - you see it quite often.
My point is simple. Be fair. If Delano gets axed for trying to do a good deed,but using a wrong method,then all the cops should come under more scrutiny to stop their illegal acts.

DONOHUE IS A SERIAL KILLER, LIE DETECTOR TESTS ARE NO PROBLEM FOR HIM TO PASS, THEY HAVE A CONDITION THAT IS CALLED IRRESTIBLE IMPULSE, TO HIM ITS LIKE A JOB OR DELIVERING THE MAIL, AND IF YOU SAW THAT HANDLING OF THE LIE DETECTOR TEST IT WAS A JOKE.
ALL 3 WOMEN WERE KILLED IN THE SAME MO,
