Go figure, another shooting in Schenectady! Lets keep revitalizing downtown though! I'm begining to think the leaders in that city are either blind, or just really, really ignorant to crime!

Until you have GLARING bright street lights and camera's on every pole on every street on the "Hill" from Lower Albany to Stueben, Lincoln, Duane and Emmett, over to State, Vale and up to Woodlawn, back over to Crane, Congress and into Mt Pleasant ( over the bridge )...wait thats basically the whole city.
Schenectady is SCREWED.. these cockroaches are everywhere and stand out like a sore thumb.

Problem is it isn't just this city, or this capital district, it's the whole screwed up leadership in the whole screwed up country. The people have been forgotten so the people stop caring. Why fight to protect the community when the community doesn't care about the citizens. We've exited that time of love thy neighbor regardless to keep your head down and ignore the disintigration. Until everyone starts to care nothing will change. Vicious double edged sword though huh? Until things change, people won't care. It's all just a mudslide disent into madness...

Hold on to your hats kids, it's gonna be a hell of a ride!

I think this was real tragic. I can't believe that people in this world are so cold hearted and so disregarding for ones family...for one's friends who will truly miss them once there gone. I have hopes and many prayers for the family of Jerome. Stay strong & stay true.

another one of shcenectady's finest citizens. Why does anyone live there. Stop pouring money into the armpit of the capital region. Even the cops are corrupt, look the othger way, and don't want to do anything about this because they want to take the easy way out and just collect a paycheck and retire. This problem will never be solved.

Stay true to what? The local bloods to whom this individual ran with ? Give me a break, in a little while there will be another shooting in Schenectady in retaliation for what was an unproductive member of society. Grow up, get a job, do something with your life instead of feeling sorry for yourself that your in the "struggle" no body cares.

Solution: Buy a really big Island. Put all gang members together and live happily ever after.
