You will get answers all right. after the the New York State PR "white wash" machine rubber stamps everything from the State Police. Best thing to hope for is put enough pressure on Pataki, with his possible upcoming presidential bid that he will be forced to come clean with the truth, and get this monkey off his back before that time. He will not want to face questions about police mis-mangaement and cover-up as his presidential aspirations gets closer to actual campaigning.

Better off pressuring Spitzer, I think.

I'm thinking David Foley is a "yes" man, how vast, I don't know. We'll see how he handles the Brooks Memorial Hospital medical reports from the trooper in the Brad Horton incident and the whole case in general.

If Spitzer is as good as he claims to be, he better get more involved, or this is going to explode in his face especially once his opponents realize he's the man who should aware.

Patacki is dreaming if he thinks the highest taxed state in the nation is going to win him something.

I think Foley made a terrible error in professional judgement, when he held a press conference with Manning outside the Fredonia barracks, soon after the Brad Horton Shooting. That hinted toward a partiality that is not becoming of his position in the public trust. The DA is responsible for protecting the innocent as well as prosecuting the bad guys. That press conference, at that location was highly inapropriate and Foley should be called on it. People here in Chautauqua County are tired of the "good old boy system" and cover-ups. The last DA of Chautauqua County was caught up in inpropriety, when he worked an inside deal and had a judge dismiss a driving while intoxicated case that involved his secretary. You would think Foley would be more careful, knowing how sensitized his constituents are. As far as Pataki's presidential aspirations you are right. There has not been a candidate elected to president from the North East since John F Kennedy. There are obvious reasons for this- in peoples minds the northeast represents big government and over taxation. How would any presidential candidate, especially from New York, explain away the highest taxation in The United States under his watch. Good Luck!

Hey, just read in the Star Gazette that Supt. Wayne Bennett retired from the State Police.
