Guess Ken Screven, Michelle Marsh and Rene Marsh all the had the day off at Channel Six. With nobody around to "ask tough questions" the Monday morning lead story had to be attributed to the Times Union!
The other "big story" over the weekend was the woman who got the free house. I think hard-working people are sick and tired of seeing these Oprah Winfrey-style handouts. Howzabout free houses for the rest of us?
By the way, shouldn't Ed Dague be writing about stuff like this?
From the T-U:
"Cancer said they called the police twice. The police told the boys to disperse, but the boys came back when the officers left, she said. Minutes later, shots were fired, she said.
"I feel like kids these days don't care about themselves and they are willing to destroy a family in a heartbeat," Cancer said.
The victim of the shooting lived in the neighborhood, Miller said. There was no sign that anybody from the graduation party was involved in the shooting.
As Cancer spoke to a reporter, a group of males in their teens and early 20s gathered outside a closed business at the corner of Quail Street and Clinton Avenue.
Though police officers were 50 yards away, one of the young men boldly moved toward the graduation party, where young people had spilled into a nearby gas station parking lot.
The teenager mouthed off and grabbed at his waistband and crotch, gesturing like he had a weapon. The young men from the graduation party moved toward him, ready to take him on, but police officers appeared and became serious about setting up a perimeter and moving the crowds away."
