I guess the old saying fits here...." the family that steals together...stays together...inRead More jail that is"....or something like that. Real smart fellows there !

It actually could be either. But if you are in an intimate relationship with someone where these pixRead More are used for mutual gratification, and the relationship ends, the point of the law is that the pix should not be able to be used against you at a later time. Not the same behavior as teenagers "sexting" necessarily but if your teen did this as many teens do without thinking of the extent of the consequences, you would be happy to know there is recourse for them too.
amerpatriot July 22, 2014 at 08:41 am
Not nec... pictures/videos taken with permission at the time, but later used without permissionRead More (revenge), or after permission has been revoked or assumed revoked. If in a relationship and give permission, then when you want to take back that permission, email yourself and all parties involved that you have rescinded permission. At least the timeline stops there. Anything after that could be a felony as described in this new law.
Terry P July 22, 2014 at 09:17 am
Sounds to me like another well-intentioned, but ultimately unenforceable law, created to make peopleRead More believe they have recourse. I'm guessing in the vast majority of potential cases, they will never be able to pin the action on anybody.

Drones are dangerous. A blast of wind can cause it to come crashing down. I saw a person die duringRead More a half time event at Shea stadium where a model plane hit someone in the head. A drone is just a more sophisticated model plane.

The type of Drone that this man used to photograph a building are less "dangerous" thanRead More automobiles, airplanes, and even bicycles. the statistics of one being hit by a model plane (including a drone type) are 10million to one. Car 565,000to one. pedestrians struck by a bike 76000 last year in the USA.

AMG: "Obviously these are all men responding." "Obviously" you are a rabidRead More man-hater. The article is about unlicensed massage parlors, not the sex felonies you describe. No one is forcing anyone into anything. And where does it mention children. Only in your sick mind, that's where. Guess what - if these places had paid the state & county for a license to operate a massage parlor, this wouldn't even be a story would it. "... the pimping of women by force..." ?? Really ? What force. Get a life.
AMG July 22, 2014 at 09:34 am
Read the article. Both respones to my comments are inaccurate. The ladies arrested were offeringRead More sex. Also read up on human trafficking before you comment on it. I have a friend that is involved in educating people because in the US - yes the US- it is a big problem. People linked to prostitution are many times involved in trafficking and children are trafficked in the same circles. Everything I said is factual. You are misinformed my friend.

Wow... how long did to take our 200K a year Police and Sheriffs to figure this out ?

I believe the Nanuet fire was the OLD Clarkstown Police headquarters on the corner of West NyackRead More road and rt 304. Old-timer Rocklanders will remember that.

He should have pleaded insanity citeing haveing to work with Gearge Bush drove him nutts watchingRead More him ruin the country and causing high gasoline prices that we all now have to pay. With his political pull he will get probation or a suspended sentence.

Alfred Patch writer - did Greg Schillinglaw from Journal News report any details? For example, whoRead More declared the suspect "drunk"? Was there a BAC test done by responding officers? Where was the suspect before the shooting.? Anybody know? Or was it the typical Journal News article - lots of "scary stuff" about guns, and nothing of use to read.
Amy S. July 19, 2014 at 01:31 pm
Those two must have been doing something in that car. A police officer doesn't just fire a gun atRead More your car for fun.

$500 bail for rape is ridiculous. Should have been $50K at least. I am assuming (hoping} it was aRead More typo by patch? Anyhow hats off to the NY troopers for nailing this scumbag.
amerpatriot July 10, 2014 at 08:24 am
Nice reporting. Is he a "former Corrections Officer"? He was suspended May 6 - is heRead More still on the payroll? Is he suspended with or without pay until Sept 4. Let's see... be convicted of a Class E Felony for Rape in the 3rd Degree or lose $500 and hit the road. That's a gimme if I ever saw one...

"Taubenfeld's accuser went to the rabbi for counseling after the September 11th attacks".Read More So, the rabbi thought, "the best defense is a good offense, so I'll attack him".

Back seated or front seated car seat.... my question is: how in the WORLD can these parents goRead More hours, and hours throughtout the day without thinking about their baby??? Don't they think about their child like: what is he/she doing right now, is he sleeping or playing with his friends, is he eating right now? Is he ok????etc...). Don't they call each other (mom/dad) to ask how the daycare drop off went??? My God!!! I think they should have the same punishment.
Ron Drew July 16, 2014 at 03:57 pm
Rita is correct in her response but what I am saying is to be consistent. New Haven should notRead More arrest a parent for accidentally leaving a child in the car and Ridgefield not arrest. Also Igor indicated not to put the burden on the car makers. Yet they now have computer chips to stop the car before it hits something and beeps at the driver if they move across the center line. All these are good things so how about something that helps solve this problem.
johndoe July 17, 2014 at 02:46 pm
OK. so what is the verdict??? why is it taking so F***** long to convict a father who killed hisRead More baby!

IP does NOT generate 2064 megawatts, it produces 2064 GIGAWATTS. "Area Man July 07, 2014 atRead More 07:01 PM So that's 6.5 acres per mw. IP generates 2064mw according to their website. That makes 13416 acres. Divided by 640 acres per sq mile equals 20.9 sq miles."

What could have been the motive? Did the child have a life insurance policy taken out on him by oneRead More or both parents?
Donna Trufant Grogg July 2, 2014 at 04:19 pm
Yes, I want to know why they are not questioning the mother more? It was said she did a search also.Read More Does this not raise serious eyebrows. Unbelievable. Am so disgusted
KD Q July 17, 2014 at 09:35 am
The husband did more than just that search... he also was researching things such as 'child-freeRead More living', 'age of consent'...I mean he was sending suasage pics to mutliple other women and one that was 16 or 17 years old... clearly this marriage was not doing well. AND to top if off, if you had just looked up hot temps in cars, wouldnt it still be fresh in your mind or at least in the back of your head? I know after i look something up I keep remembering it for weeks later.... theres no way he nonchanlantly 'forgot' his own child in the car.

"The Friends of the Sing Sing Historic Prison Museum created a 25-minute long to explain theRead More benefits of the proposed historical museum." This is not a sentence and should receive a failing grade. The Patch continues to deliver less news, and what news the Patch does report is done poorly.
