Attached are two video's they speak for themselves. The City of Rye does't seem to be concerned forRead More the safety of our first responders? You decide. This is still a leftover accident waiting to happen (from the French / Pickup administration). How much longer will this be allowed on Hen Island in Rye? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCOcMOyfTEU&list=UUSKIv_k38Xqk1FmYNjQDnzA https://www.youtube.com/embed/FG1LGKieTxY?feature=player_detailpage Recommend

AND...my objection to our Police is that they leave their car motors running - polluting for ages -Read More WAY past the County three minute limit (which no-one seems to know about anyway). Does it really take so long to start up the motor for a chase, ticket, etc.? Rockalnd law is 3-minute idle limit - ice, snow, cold, or heat
willie 6 April 14, 2014 at 08:35 am
WE THE PEOPLE pay for the gas. observed a police car in front of PIERMONT VILLAGE HALL running andRead More came back the other way a half hour later and the POLICE CAR WAS STILL RUNNING. WHAT A WASTE !
Ryan Murray April 15, 2014 at 08:52 pm
I think it's great! Should be a priority everywhere, not just the highways. Might make someRead More enemies here, though that's not my intent. A thought though; how do police give tickets for using mobile devices when they themselves use them while driving without hands-free devices?

At least they caught him. He will receive a harsh slap on the wrist but nothing more.

Thank you Scott for your comments. I can only imagine the comments if those motorists who wereRead More delayed from the more than usual bottle-necks at the byramn/PC border, didn't have the full story. And believe me, there was plenty of horn-honking at the scene tonight!
Scott Peterson March 27, 2014 at 12:42 am
Such horn honking is a symptom of frustration over not being informed which may lead to the publicRead More backlash at the perceived over-reaction. Avoiding it would be easy but speaking to people like adults instead of suspects seems beyond the scope of police procedure in this more secure world we live in now.
Barbara Heins (Editor) March 27, 2014 at 01:30 pm
Scott ... there was public notification via local media and Greenwich police. You can follow us onRead More Twitter: @GreenwichPatch and GPD: @GreenwichCTPD for all of the latest updates.

As far as I know greenwich gas or CNG wear blue uniforms and do have ID cards my Dad once workedRead More for them,their vehicles also has the gas flame logos be it a van or car..Let no one in your home no one unless you know who they are ask questions tell them you have a dog, this will steer them.I too had this man who said he was selling oreck vacuums he tried to get inside my home while another waited in the car I stood out side he asked to come in I knew something was amiss I told him I was, not interested in his product he started to walk towards my door to go inside only to be met by my 190 lb. Newfoundland hound who did,nt take to males only my husband and kids I tried to warn him about the dog.He took off in a shot never to return againThe look on his face was priceless the dog stood six foot high on his hind legs in front of the door.

I'm sorry, but it sounds a little bit like racial profiling . This type of action does not takeRead More place on other ethnic holidays . Think about it.
R Rice March 6, 2014 at 07:05 am
Looks like another civil rights violation, force fed into law by executive action, instead ofRead More legislative debate "for the public's safety." Sounds a lot like the justification for NSA spying that no one seems too concerned about, anymore...
DG March 6, 2014 at 02:02 pm
if cops are going to have our personal digital life history at their fingertips, we should also haveRead More access to their personnel files, including complaints like, false arrests, departmental disciplinary actions and proceedings, psychological profiles, and driving and arrest histories. After all, no information is sacred anymore.

have you driven a highway recently? everyone is speeding. cuomo is the worst governor. please voteRead More for the new guy in november.
Bob Zahm February 28, 2014 at 01:49 pm
@Lanning - in which town / city / village did this take place? There are lots of Central avenues inRead More Westchester County and without a place name, it's tough to assess the relevance of this article to "my" patch.
Lanning Taliaferro (Editor) February 28, 2014 at 02:47 pm
Thanks, RyeBob, for the headsup. For clarity I added "through Hartsdale" to this sentence:Read More Traffic through Hartsdale was shut down from Central Avenue to Hartsdale Village after the 2:30 p.m. explosion. And as for relevance, I think when more than 1000 people lose power because of a manhole explosion in lower Westchester that it's news all over lower Westchester. That's my opinion, anyway!

OK Paula. Good point in response to my post of March 1. So, I place the following addition to myRead More comment: "Oh poor Kerry. Poor, poor Kerry. Because she has more money than the common transgressor, her name got into the paper. Good, and double good for her. Paula: chill out, before you make yourself sick. This transmission is both "Over" and "Out".

Ask yourselves if this was you and a jury of your peers acquitted you , how and what would you beRead More posting now ? She had a great Attorney and a creative / unusual Defense which the Jury agreed with so case closed . As to names being printed in the Papers , I think everyone's name should be printed as they are potentially a danger to Society . Embarrassement can be a great motivator . Years ago the Media did print names and I was humiliated being one .

Kennedy's have a knack for beating the laws Now death is another story.
Carolyn Adams February 28, 2014 at 07:12 am
Maybe this will affect you when someone breaks into your home and steals your valuables in order toRead More buy drugs. When something is labeled an epidemic it means that it impacts society as a whole not just the individuals who 'choose' to do drugs. I certainly don't have the answers and didn't participate in the Town Hall, but if all it did was educate people about the issue, then it's a start. At least we're not burying our heads in the sand.
Carolyn Adams February 28, 2014 at 07:24 am
And I'll be real curious to see what Hollywood's reaction is to this problem vis a vis the Oscars.Read More Having lost 2 of their own to heroin overdoses in the past year, I would love to see them be proactive in taking a stand on this topic. But I doubt they will.
jo February 28, 2014 at 07:25 am
education about the "evils" of drugs has been around forever.. if folks don't get it byRead More now, I have no hope they ever will.. take the drugs ..suffer the consequences ..

justice is never blind. In the eyes of the law some are more equal than others.

If she weren't a Kennedy, this would be all over. Evidence is circumstantial, so let it rest
Elizabeth Reed February 25, 2014 at 11:39 am
Not generally a supporter but both are very small tablets and could easily be confused - has anyoneRead More ever picked up the wrong bottle for moisturizer - or wrong tube when looking for toothpaste during their morning routine. Ambien is an amnesiac, you have no idea what you are doing if you get out of bed after having taken it.
Guarags30 February 27, 2014 at 08:02 am
That didnt take long... She already is playing the Kennedy card. I guess they just feel they can doRead More whatever it is they want. Like cheat on your wife (most of the Kennedy men), or kill people in car accidents and drive away (Teddy) or the numerous other things they get away with. Anyway wasn't her pills in different containers? That's like me bringing a can of beer to work and saying "oh sorry I thought it was a pepsi"
Ross Revira February 23, 2014 at 08:55 am
Very misleading headline. No detective lied under oath in court. They lied to the murderers whileRead More being interrogated after they were Mirandized. I hope the people who applaud this decision are never victims of crime.
JJ February 23, 2014 at 09:27 am
Yep, the Police have to play by the Marquess of Queensberry rules ; however criminals can lie allRead More day long. "That's not my gun"..."that's not my dope"...."I didn't kill that man". They didn't violate this guy's rights. They stretched the truth just like he was doing.
Bob Zahm February 24, 2014 at 11:36 am
And this article is related to Rye how? Lanning I suspect that you and the other (remaining) PatchRead More editors are under tremendous pressure to get content on the Patch sites, but please try to either keep them directly relevant to Rye or make clear in the title the town/city/village to which the article relates.
Rob T February 20, 2014 at 11:30 am

The basketball coach in Cortlandt got 25 years to life for his sickening acts, why was this piece ofRead More trash issued such a shorter sentence?
P February 22, 2014 at 10:28 am
One word answers all your questions pertaining to why this horrible human only received a 5 yearRead More sentence and it simply comes down to MONEY. I'm sure this asshole had a private practice, made out pretty well and had a 6 figure lawyer on retainer just in case he ran into trouble. For all you outraged, please don't fear, this guy will have an extremely unpleasant 5 years of being passed around and flip flopped.
