Although I'm not born and raised here, in my 20 plus years I think when the then current school superintendent broke into a private citizen's house looking for drugs (and his kid) was pretty bad. Especially to see it get buried pretty well AND go unpunished.

How about former police chief McCarthy driving home from Penn Yan one night in an "S" pattern with a sheriff's escort making sure he didn't hit anything.

How about the Roseland Waterpark debacle?

The assistant city manager driving drunk and running head on into another car driven by an elderly couple and he didn't lose his job. In fact, he was defended by the folks at city hall saying that he dosen't need a driver's license to do his job. But, does he need some honesty and integrity?

I'm an 'it is what it is' kind of guy, but I wish The Home of the Minions™ had been live when that happened.

You mention James Miller...He never should have gotten as far as he did with his career. He pummeled a young man (Beale was the last name I believe) at McGhan's years ago (in the 70s or early 80s) and it got SWEPT under the rug. He was off duty but that should not have made any difference. Other stories here also. Does anyone remember his drunkeness at the old Roseland Bowl. Not a pretty site. I hope he is sober driving his electric car from the Country Club heading uptown on a regular basis in the summer. YA LIKE THAT IS POSSIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!! :moresarcasm:

I'm sure as a former sheriff, he'll be treated the same as the recent female CPD officer stopped for DWI.

I wonder if she was writing a ticket for DWI. I would think that she would have a desk job only till this charge against her is resolved. Oh, I forgot this is Cdga. and Ontario Cty. where they sweep things away when it is one of thier own or a Judge, DA, or someone that is a local business person. You all know who you are and should be proud...NOT!!!
