These are some of the cruelest, most tasteless comments I have ever seen. Get a life people. These children might be reading this. What could possibly be the upside of taking the time to write these nasty comments? It won't bring back a single one of the victims, and will only hurt these children. View Comment
This was not handled well. None of the kids were dismissed from school---that is erroneous reporting. In fact, parents were prevented from taking their kids home. Then, they bused the kids back from the middle school to the high school and I got a call from my daughter at 1:30 saying that they "ran out of food" for lunch, so she couldn't eat today. Parents are not permitted access to their children, the kids don't have food, no one answering the phone at the high school. Not okay Scarsdale. View Comment
Every single one of us is too stupid to be driving--yourself included. You're just figuring this out now? We make countless absentminded driving mistakes every day. People glance down at their phones, fiddle with a coffee cup, argue with the person next to them, drive while tired, drive while taking medications (it may be legal, but you're still impaired). It is nothing but DUMB LUCK that we don't kill more people on the roads when we do these things. Few of us actually pay proper attention behind the wheel. Judge not. View Comment
We don't know what happened. It was an unfamiliar road to her. She may not have been fully aware she was pulling onto tracks when she followed traffic and made the wrong panicked decision. Watch what you write. This woman left behind three children who are reading this. Judging her harshly won't bring back the dead, so what exactly is the point of such a comment. View Comment
It would help local businesses if the parking police would not be so aggressive with tickets. I vowed to stop shopping in Scarsdale village the day a cop was measuring (yes, actually measuring in inches) how far my car was jutting out into the street. Having roaming parking cops is very intimidating to customers and definitely keeps people away from downtown areas. I 100% support patronizing local businesses, but the police need to get on board too. View Comment
Glad they cracked down on this. These "massage" places and "foot spas" are popping up everywhere. For the most part, police do nothing about them. At the very LEAST, they are violating the law because massage is a licensed health profession that cost between 10 and 20K to learn. Out of fairness to the hardworking professionals who learn anatomy, physiology, and medical/sports massage, these chop shops need to be shut down. Also, the whole point of licensing health professions is to protect the public--which isn't happening with prostitutes and unlicensed hacks operating in plain sight. View Comment
Get this psychopath off of the streets. Whatever the MAX sentence is for animal cruelty, multiply it by 25 and put him away for every last second. Chances are if he is doing these twisted and sadistic things to cats, there are other crimes he has or will commit against vulnerable people. View Comment
Wow. Most comments are heartless and vile. Doesn't anyone have any compassion anymore? A life was lost. Someone's son, friend. May he rest in peace. What is it about internet comments that brings out the worst in people? View Comment
I support this, and yes if it was next door to me I would be fine with it. Autism affects everyone, and as a community we should be helping. Kids playing are at no greater safety risk than from the average assortment of creeps that populate our neighborhood. View Comment
I really wish people would stop acting like Bigfoot or the Loch Ness monster has arrived. We should be happy that species can actually survive what we have done to this planet. Biodiversity is in our best interest. View Comment
What is going on in Westchester County? This is on the heels of the 25 dead cats hung from a tree in Yonkers, and the poisonings in Yonkers last summer. Neither of those cases have been solved. They need to find these psychos and lock them up. View Comment
So easy to spend it, so hard to earn it. You walk out the door in this county and 100 bucks is gone.
I don't think the problem is Dem vs. Rep. The problem isn't money spent to help the poor, either. The problem is corporations and greed. They have found ways to increase their profits, decimate workers, get subsidies, and create a tax burden on all of us (by not paying their workers a living wage and forcing them to go on food stamps etc). And everything is being privatized and for-profit---prisons, the military/defense, schools, health care. Then all that profit just rises to the top and regular people can barely get by. This country cannot go on like this. The rich/poor gap is too wide. View Comment
This whole thing seems grossly mishandled. If somebody reports "decapitated geese" the police should be on it and treat it like a real crime. People who hurt animals are psychopaths and are a danger to everyone. I walk around that lake all the time. I don't like knowing that there is a potential nut job on the loose and the Parks dept and police just were too lazy to properly investigate.
Thank you to the city of Yonkers for addressing this issue. And thank you for animal activists from ADOW who work tirelessly on behalf of those who have no voice. I know for a fact that they do this out of love and compassion, and make zero money or donations from this. The poor discarded cats need all the help they can get. View Comment
Nature Advocate, you are seriously misguided and disturbed. Most of us who do rescue work pay out of our own pockets. I don't think you have the slightest clue. We are helping innocent animals who are dumped out on the streets by lazy, ignorant people. View Comment
Thank goodness for this group of concerned citizens. It is really sad what happens to cats out on the street. These animals don't ask to be there. By and large, they are dumped pets who manage to survive and become feral. Yet they are constantly villanized and targeted for all sorts of abuse. They are fodder for every dogfighting ring, neighborhood psycho, demented gangs of kids, and Audubon-cat-hating nuts out there. Not to mention all the other hazards the poor creatures have to deal with. Compassionate people need to take a stand against cruelty, and it is good to see this group forming. View Comment
Health care was a disaster before Obama, and remains a disaster. As a private contractor, I have always purchased my own health insurance. It is absolutely preposterous to pay what I pay---almost 600 a month---yet what choice do I have. And I have a high deductible so most of what i pay is out of pocket. We have a BROKEN health care system. Problem is those in power have cushy, taxpayer funded insurance plans so they will never have to actually experience what the average working slobs do. So they are not motivated to do anything. Let these politicians give up their taxpayer funded retirement, insurance, job security etc. and let them buy on the open market like the rest of us. That will change things real fast.
People love to blame Obama, but please explain how things were not as abyssmal before him? Insurance companies are a useless, greedy, immoral scourge. View Comment
Blame the poor, blame the poor....Yes, those disenfranchised people living on section 8 are ruling things from the bottom. Blaming the poor is exactly what the 1 percent want the working class to do. It deflects attention from them and the fact that they are the cause of this current mess. View Comment
