I guess it gets crazy at night in Utica. WKTV, next time investigate to confirm what happened and who the suspects are.

You probably should put Hauck on payroll since you typically report stories without any leg work yourself. The arrest are public knowledge, you not knowing says a lot.

the news tells fairy tails one news org says the guy fired a shot in the place of business and the utica od says the guy handed the party planer a bullet whats the truth did he hand him a bullet or was a shot fired? if someone fired off a shot in this place the place would be empty seeing all the officers there and all the people inside with lights on proves no shots where fired when will the news get it right and when will the police stop telling the news lies because someone clearly has the story wrong also is a fight of 200 people not one civilian was injured only police officers ?

Why did UPD arrest the person that gave them the casing and alerted them to the location of the suspect. UPD says the suspect attempted to fight the owner so why arrest a cooperating owner

number one if shots where fired everyone in the place should have been questioned never happened because officers let them all leave at once causing the huge fight to happen two if they had the owner talking to them they should have never let him approach the suspect to fight the officer should have intervened their is so much wrong with this night a glass bottle left the building ? another mistake the officers made question everyone in the building let them out one by one searching them.... a shot was fired inside a building they say ? so people have to be questioned and searched because criminals give guns to other people to carry it for them ? two if the officers did search everyone the bottle would have never left the building three if they let everyone leave one by one no fight would have happened i know it takes up time and people think aw they are monkeys but they say in the news if it really happened that a shot was fired in a business and in the city limits i rest my case the officer don't know what they are doing this fight could have been prevented and officers would have never been injured every one was inside the place when over 10 officers where outside the lights where on in the business the officers had leaders there Sargent s and other leaders from other towns the police don't know how to handle situations they are all book smart period

guess who wrote:
Read the original POLICE REPORT listed on FB for the actual details of this mini riot. The owner was charged with TWO counts of Disorderly Conduct. He caters to these low lives and this is what happens.
The dispute started inside the restaurant and spilled out into the street where more primates joined in.
Too bad the cops didn't let these bunch of primates just kill themselves off while they sat back and watched them do it - LOL!
Police report? lol, It probably has changed a dozen times from then to now. So he was charged for catering to what you consider a low life? Didn't know it was against the law. So what it started inside. As an owner he did the right thing of informing police who the trouble maker was and saved them the trouble of finding the casing. The officers admitted in the report the suspect later STARTED an altercation with the cooperative owner. A UPD officer later shows their bias by posting the following on their social media page, "City of Utica, NY Police Department ‎@John Boyd: You are far from being a victim. The way you conduct your business it brings trouble to the neighborhood and endangers the safety of numerous people", as if he was the suspect. The city doesn't treat cooperative owners on Varick street with the same bias and they have twice criminal mischief and crime. Hmmm, wonder why that is...

utica od story no shots fired? also if the owner said they are in the back officers should have said point him out and then officers approach why the officers let him engage a man with a gun is beyond me they should have never let it go that far and not having an officer at the door stopping the people from leaving is crazy i have been to many bars in Syracuse and they limit the people leaving at once especially when their is police and a fight outside to stop this kind of problems it happens even with white people not just black and or mixed races

upd brass can not say their was a leadership prob. excuse because i seen way before the fight that the union president was there and tones of other brass officers from other towns and state and county so it is a problem of officers not having the balls to stop an incident and wanting a place to be prosper in business regardless of who and what race attends i would rather my family members go to an open establishment then go to house party's where officer have no clue and are spread across the city keep them in one place and have only one call to respond to not 10 spread across the city and who knows who is getting raped at the house party's

We should trust what our local media reports. They would never have an agenda, like making us believe we need more UPD officers.....

yeah sometimes if you just write and write and dont put any periods it looks like your sentence goes on forever and noone can really understand what your trying to say cause one thought leads into another and noone can tell where one thought ends and one begins not that it is annoyingor anything.
