Why did it take realtives nearly 20 years to even check on their whereabouts?

In fact, college rape stats are downplayed rather than exaggerated. Colleges hide incidencesRead More internally with campus security and sexual assault committees, rather than notifying the police who would make a public record of the event. Evidentially there is a "Red Zone" where girls are most likely to be rape - between the start of school and Thanksgiving freshman year. Mainly, inexperience with alcohol and not knowing who to trust. Girls NEVER go alone to a campus party, take a friend(s). Make a pack to go home together. Always assume the "jungle juice" punch will be spiked. If offer a water or soda, make sure it has been tampered with. And, if anything happens go to the hospital and the police, not the college security who (1) aren't trained and (2) work for the college who has financial incentive in not reporting and (3) can't send the rapist to jail.

Colleges hide incidencesRead More internally with campus security and sexual assault committees, rather than notifying the police and making a public record. Evidentially, there is a "Red Zone" when girls are most likely to be rape - between the start of freshman year to Thanksgiving Break - when girls are less inexperience with alcohol and don't have strong friendships yet. Girls NEVER go alone to a campus party, take a friend(s). Make a pack to go home together. Always assume the "jungle juice" punch will be spiked. If offer a water or soda, make sure it has NOT been tampered with. And, if anything happens go to the hospital and the police, not the college security who (1) aren't trained and (2) work for the college who has financial incentive in not reporting and (3) can't send the rapist to jail. Lower the drinking age back down to 18 years old! Girls need to control their liquor instead of relying on the older 21+ students to provide the "jungle juice" punches that are so common now. Girls don't know the type of liquor, its proof and how much is used in these punches.
Max E Leahy July 18, 2014 at 09:12 am
As a recent college graduate I cannot agree with you more Anne. If we lowered the drinking age backRead More to 18 everyone would be a lot more responsible with with their drinking. By making it illegal to drink at 18, it just makes college students want to over indulge.

Have you ever noticed that when tragedy strikes this country the Republican presidents are always onRead More vacation and the Democratic presidents are always in the White House? Funny. Even with Katrina, the war criminal was in Crawford on his month-long (5th) vacation.

Maybe the guys in the car gave him a look.

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.

It must be quite a day for a male in a female prison. Hard to imagine what goes on in there!

$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...

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!

At this point in its death throes, Patch struggles even to post a coherent and accurate headline.Read More Without the second comma to complete the dependent clause, it reads as if the "Brewster Man" and "Ex-NYPD Cop" are two different people. The wrong word choice of "After" further implies the incident just happened, when it was two years ago. It should read, "Brewster Man, Ex-NYPD Cop, Faces Sentencing for Punching Disabled Man" but what's the use... good editors are not hard to find, but they do like to be paid.

From the Tao..."those who Speak, don't know ...those who Don't speak know"... we have toRead More much "chatter" from them who do NOT Know....

Yeah, I'm sure the same people screaming for IP's closure are on their way to the southern border toRead More adopt 3 or 4 of the poor innocent illegals obama is allowing to flood the country.

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.
