I've been writing about Troy, Rensselaer County and the surrounding areas for 15 years. Got a tip, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or 518-878-1000
The weathers not cooperating Lou. How many more killings before you step up and get aggressive with the thugs responsible? Don't you and Pete forget to cash your checks on Friday though.
Lou-time to get rid of tidesco-put someone else in charge-he has been a failure since being put back in charge this year.
The city continuously raises property tax but still patrols the city at 8 guys and girls which is the same amount of cops it did in 1987. That to me is ridiculous.
Your county taxes are rising even faster
2000 $ A week I wish I could get that
There are 4 zones in the City...two cops in each zone at all times! Clearly, not enough enforcement to protect us!
This is what happens when you have a college professor as Mayor and a used furniture salesman as Deputy Mayor. Both are useless and inexperienced period!!!!
And butcher turned police chief , at a 600% increase in murders, your going to need your old meat locker back
Ditto for a chief of police who lives in another city and has no idea of what he is doing
Maybe with his free time he can finish the house so his wife can move out of her parents basement and he can move to savanna like he wanted years back
The mayor lives in his mothers basement?
No that's Harry.
Let's ask Police Chief Tedesco what his plan is. Oh wait... he doesn't have one.Hard to blame the mayor when the poilce chief sits on his ass with his fingers in his ears. Well except when he's telling people that crime is down this year HAHAHA. And worse, his sock puppet side kick Spooky Jim Gordon is repeating this crap as though he expects us to believe it. Jim Gordon and Tedesco think people in the BURGH are stupid and a bunch of vigilentes, they don't want us to do anything but shut up and let the thugs take over.
Certainly the police chief bares some of the blame, but to say it's hard to blame the mayor shows your ignorance. The mayor is the chiefs boss, if he gives him an order and he doesn't follow it he could be replaced Oh wait....he did that already and how did that work out? Gordon is a sock puppet for the chief yet you were a sock puppet for Fitzie? In your two terms Kevin your name was never mentioned for mayor, in a half a term Gordon is probably one of the frontrunners.
Kevin it got to kill you that to put in in baseball terms YOURRRRR OUTTTTT. Never to return. We all do hope you run though because it will be great to watch both side destroy what little self-esteem you think you have left. Your a insignificant little cog in the world to Troy politics. You're no more than the brother they laugh about. You're as funny as a 45-year-old bouncer could be.
Tedesco is a joke
Gordon a front runner for mayor? That's the funniest thing I've heard all week. No wonder the GOP keeps getting it's ass kicked in Troy.
Where are Alice and rev Willie. The police can't haress the local children. Didn't they get in trouble for that.
Cut off all services to the crime ridden area. No mail delivery, no trash pick up no nothing until they police themselves. Why should we taxpayers pay for filth several times over?
Troy is one of the few places where you invest in property, take personal interest in your neighborhood, and pay excessive tax and receive negative return on all.Lou's makes me miss Tut and Pattison say what you want they generally cared. Lou operates in a fog.I respect the police... If the police were able to focus or natural police work things would improve look at Colonie they cover a much larger area with 8 patrol units. Years ago Colonie had it easier then Troy I think the playing field has leveled. In Troy the department is forced to do lots of social work policing certainly TPD is more politically correct I can imagine if the police cracked down on quality of life issues which in some cases would knock the bigger crimes lower Lou and Co. would go nuts.If Lou runs his slogan should be: Vote for the Reactionary Team!
It's Tedesco dumbass. Ask Tedesco what he wants to do that the administration is stopping him from doing. The answer? Nothing. Tedesco is the failure, not Lou.
Pattison also was huge on ensuring employees lived within the City
@ 5:06 Lou is sleeping for God's Sake! The only time he is ever really awake is at a ribbon-cutting with his jumbo scissors!
Just saw the mayor and chief on TV. There really isn't any crime and the homicides didn't really happen. Tucked into their homes in Latham and the snotty east side all is well. What an insult to the residents, victims and victims families. Don't stand down, step down.
Tedesco is asleep snoring in his bed in Latham while the city of troy burns!
Ie was hot as hell the last few days. Why were the pools closed?
Ummm the lifeguards went back to college?
Who gets rid of crosswalk tickets these days?
It's ok, Tedesco said this is a " crime abberition ". I wonder if the two people who were beaten to death would agree with him.
Just Hire Jay Vandenburg to ride around with his crew of misfits on the Zoning Appeals Board Jay can snarl and brood and puff up like a tough guy and those gang banger's will run with there tails between there legs back to there mommy's.Lets face it they all know he is a racists That other little over paid jerk off who sits next to Jay and whispers and smiles at the meetings he can be in a midget tossing circus and get tossed into a pool of Human Excrement provided by the Water Filtration plant Kathy can twirl her hair and look like she really cares.And on the other side of the coin there was another X City employee who could make piece with the crack dealers for a small piece of the action to look the other way so they can have cash to run another candidate for mayor next go round
Jay does keep the trash out. Starting with you and your family Robert but it must kill you that Jays brother gets what ever he wants from the city of Troy. You must just be the wrong side of the tracks Robert or trailer park.
Robert: you and I are old buds my friend. Please get help. Stop putting your family and friends in danger with your comments. Do the right thing.
Cause all of the summer help went back to school dummy
GET RID OF THE CHIEF!!!!
First Jim Gordon says crime is down. Now hes yelling crime is up. This morning he screams for SCU but yesterday he told the cheif he should do what he wants, knowing the chief doesn't want the unit. Jim Gordon has no idea what he's doing. Throw him out!
And his buddy Tedesco!!
Thank goodness Harry appointed Tedesco. Best move this city has ever seen.
