Harry Carnevale In Reverse


Deaths due to police chases are always extra horrific.
Should never happen.


Harry Carnevale

  • Silver-Spoon Upper Middle Classer w/bright future
  • Killed by chased driver in Arbor Hill (Albany)
  • Driver was working poor black

Why police would chase anyone going 75 on I-90 is beyond me. Most days if you go between 65 and 70 traffic whizzes by you as if you were putzing along.

From the Times Union: "Eckart-Rigberg was ticketed twice for driving 60 mph in 55 mph zones, in Albany and Guilderland, and for going 41 mph in a 30 mph zone in Albany as well..."

Really? Try Hackett Boulevard in Albany, anytime of day, where drivers whiz past at 55mph and get ready for road rage if you don't get out of their way!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
