Why doesn't the desperate hypocrite Ball ask Romney to disclose his tax returns? Ball is such an opportunist, he does all this "community work" to try to buy votes. I truly can't stand the guy especially since that incident with the North Salem Family, where he too advantage of their request for help for a private matter, and used it in his campaign to gain votes. Very deceptive. View Comment
Obviously, it is clear that they are absolutely heartless. So many people are going to suffer if the win. Sadly it is the ones who are most vulnerable. These people call themselves philanthropists, if they truly were giving because they like helping the people who need the help the most, and not just to get tax breaks, them they would have consciences.
Americans are not that stupid, and they will vote for the other guy. View Comment
Francis, the truth remains that our kids and men are definitely looked at more differently than other others. Maybe there needs to be sensitivity classes taught, and when someone is making that split second decision, they will not kill an unarmed man. BTW who is on the grand jury, you spoke about.
People are so biased. So what if the kids were out having a great time? There was no reason that this young boy's body should have been riddled with bullets and had to die. I pray that this officer's conscience will erode with the guilt he feels on a daily basis. It saddens me that people still treat people the way they do in 2012. Whatever happened to humanity? Maybe I am too passionate about this subject right now and may just be letting my heart out, but I do hope that someday the world will change and we will see everyone, no matter what their skin color as equals. Hopefully our children are better at this than we are. View Comment
I agree with them. I moved to Westchester from Canada 12 years ago and thought that it would be a great place to raise my family, but with all these killings of black unarmed people at the hands of law enforcement here makes me feel somewhat helpless. A young Pace University man shot by police a few years ago got zero justice and his murderer was awarded an award right after he killed the unarmed youth; the Chamberlain case, the case in Rockland where a mentally unstable man was also shot and nothing will be done. There are other cases like this, and in all cases the investigation is overseen by friends, relatives and friends of relatives of the officers, and everything is swept under the table and the officers are always cleared. It is extremely scary raising black children, especially boys in Westchester. When most parents are teaching their kids how to throw a baseball, we are teaching our children how to act when stopped by a police office. Even though my kids are at one of the top private schools in Westchester and maybe able to articulate very well, I still fear for them, they are visibly black.
Never really liked Ball since that poor Westchester family incident, where he publicized their daughter's illness and how he had helped the family to gain sympathy and votes. The family were extremely outraged, and Balled lied in a huge cover up. Very dishonest young man, very dishonest and a bit heartless. View Comment
What does not hurt you only makes you stronger. This seems to be a very personal issue that Staropoli had with Hart. I am shocked that the school district supported her on her very biased and personal decision. View Comment
