    ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) - A bill currently making its way through the State Legislature would make it a crime to annoy a police officer, a move that could have far reaching consequences. The State Senate passed the bill Wednesday that makes it felony to “harass, annoy, threaten or alarm” an on duty police officer by subjecting them to any physical contact. A press release from the NYS Senate originally stated, “The bill (S.2402), sponsored by Senator Joe Griffo (R-C-I, Rome) would make it a felony to harass, annoy, or threaten a police officer while on duty.” However, as the bill...

    The New York State Senate today passed a bill that creates the crime of aggravated harassment of a police or peace officer. The bill (S.2402), sponsored by Senator Joe Griffo (R-C-I, Rome) would make it a felony to harass, annoy, or threaten a police officer while on duty. Our system of laws is established to protect the foundations of our society, Senator Griffo said. Police officers who risk their lives every day in our cities and on our highways deserve every possible protection, and those who treat them with disrespect, harass them and create situations that can lead to injuries...

  • Gay 'Cutest Couple' at NY high school draws attention online, but little notice at school

    CARMEL, N.Y. Two boys have been elected "cutest couple" in the senior class at their suburban New York high school. The choice at Carmel High has created something of an online sensation, thanks to a yearbook photo of the smiling boys in a close embrace. But it seems to have been accepted with little notice at the school. One of the boys says they're getting teased a bit but that's because of their Internet fame, not for being gay. Other students say the boys are popular, smart and helpful.

    Upstate New York is in economic crisis. And New York's moratorium on hydrofracturing, or "fracking," is impeding recovery. In New York City, private sector wages grew by 4 percent in real terms between 2000 and 2011. But in New York State's Southern Tier, in counties such as Broome, Chemung, and Tioga, wages declined by 1%. Over the past decade, employment in New York City has grown by 9 percent. But in Binghamton and its surrounding suburbs, in Broome County, employment has declined by 11 percent over the same period. Elmira, Chemung County, has seen a decline of 8%. These counties...

    100 million database set up to store extensive records on millions of public school students has stumbled badly since its launch this spring, with officials in several states backing away from the project amid protests from irate parents. The database, funded mostly by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is intended to track students from kindergarten through high school by storing myriad data points: test scores, learning disabilities, discipline records - even teacher assessments of a child's character. The idea is that consolidated records make it easier for teachers to use software that mines data to identify academic weaknesses. Games,...

    Men may be ready to forgive Anthony Weiner. Although women continue to have their doubts about the scandal-scarred pol, a new poll released Tuesday found that Democratic men named Weiner as their top choice for mayor more than they did any other candidate. And men are leading the way for Weiner as he gains altitude among all Democratic voters, dramatically cutting into front-runner Christine Quinns lead and underscoring the dramatic impact the ex-congressman has had on the race in mere days. Weiner is clearly a factor to be considered in the mayoralty, said Lee Miringoff, who directs the Marist College...

    The sheriffs thought they were being summoned to the Capitol to discuss ideas for changes to New York's gun control law, the SAFE Act. Instead, Gov. Andrew Cuomo told them to keep quiet. Opposition to the new law has simmered in upstate areas since Cuomo signed the law in January. Many county sheriffs oppose it, particularly its expanded definition of banned assault weapons, and have spoken out around the state. In January, the New York State Sheriffs' Association wrote Cuomo with an analysis, and later suggested tweaks. Cuomo invited its leaders to the Capitol last month, people briefed on the...

Weiner is giving serious thought (and money) to exploring the possibility of running for mayor of the city that was hit by Al-Qaeda on 9/11/01. Based on what is known about Huma, something else becomes clear. A woman with significant familial ties to the group that spawned Al-Qaeda would become first lady of the city that was hit by Al-Qaeda on 9/11/01. Make no mistake, whether Abedin has Brotherhood sympathies or not, her mother Saleha...

    Kirsten Powers has done a national service, by virtue of her now-famous USA Today column, of putting the news of the trial of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell on the national radar screen. This, of course, is the horror story of a cesspool in Philadelphia posturing as an abortion clinic, operating without inspection for 17 years. Gosnell, the doctor who ran the place, is formally charged with the murder of one woman and seven infants. However, the grand jury report and testimony of family and staff at the trial indicate that if there were records in this dump, where life and...

    Mayor Michael Bloomberg may have canceled his morning radio appearance today in response to the ongoing manhunt for a suspect involved in Mondays deadly bombing attack on the Boston Marathon, but another top New York official, Governor Andrew Cuomo, scheduled his own radio interview on The Capitol Pressroom soon after. Mr. Cuomo directly addressed the high-profile situation in the Bay State by employing a phrase he previously used to describe climate change in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy: the new normal.

    A Saudi family who fled their Sarasota area home weeks before 9/11 had many connections to individuals associated with the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001, according to newly released FBI records. One partially declassified document, marked secret, lists three of those individuals and ties them to the Venice, Fla., flight school where suicide hijackers Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi trained. Accomplice Ziad Jarrah took flying lessons at another school a block away. Atta and al-Shehhi were at the controls of the jetliners that slammed into the twin towers of New Yorks World Trade Center, killing nearly 3,000 people. Jarrah was the...

    Syracuse, N.Y. -- The union representing New York State Police say they believe the state's stricter gun laws could put law enforcement officers at risk. In an email release on Monday, the New York State Troopers PBA said its 6,000-member group "holds widely shared concerns" about the NY Safe Act. Nonetheless, the union takes exception to some state lawmakers accusing the troopers of failing to enforce the law. "The individual members of this union did not write the terms of the bill nor vote on its passage," the release said. "We urge the citizens of New York state to remember...

    The Abortion Expansion Bill Send a message to Governor Cuomo and your legislators today. Just go HERE.Memorandum of Opposition Re: The Abortion Expansion Bill “In relation to revising existing provisions of law regarding abortions”The above-referenced legislation may come before you as a stand-alone bill (such as S.438, Stewart-Cousins) or may be re-packaged into a multi-point “women’s agenda” as advocated by Governor Andrew Cuomo in his 2013 State of the State message. We strongly urge you to oppose this abortion expansion plan, in whatever form it may take. It is unnecessary, extreme and dangerous. For the reasons outlined below, the New...

    And so this is how it begins: a man with no criminal record and no mental health issues is told by the state that he must turn in his legally-purchased arms to the state because they somehow accessed his medical records. Reader LC Scotty dropped this admission of tyranny into the comments of todays earlier post: The NYS SAFE Act is billed as a necessary law to protect the public and keep guns out of the hands of the wrong people. But Hamburg attorney Jim Tresmond says his client was notified by letter that his gun permit was suspended upon...

    Finally, after years of dreaming, we've finally moving from New Yorkistan to America (the outskirts of Atlanta, to be exactly)! I accepted the transfer offer today, for a position that I really wanted & I'm pretty sure I'm going to love. And to all the Georgia residents out there, I solemnly swear that we will not mess up your state. We're moving to Georgia because we like what it is, not because we want to change it. Having been raised in captivity, I'm thinking it may take us a while to adapt to the wild (AKA freedom). But I'm positive...
