Looks like Greece needs a curfew.

Interesting how the four that were arrested were from Rochester...

SCATS said...

To 10:40AM ~~ Does that make it any less of a problem for Greece?

No it is a Greece problem. And what was the stolen property they were in possession of? Was it the gun?
And does early Saturday mean near3am?

SCATS said...

To 11:27AM ~~ Yes, one article said the police recovered a stolen revolver. Yes, it was just before 3AM.

the incident happened at dennys. the 4 people fled. police caught up with the car and recovered the gun.

According to YNN, a Ridge Rd traffic stop resulted in apprehension of the accused & recovery of the weapon.

The new chief had a tough time his first two weeks on the job. A murder-suicide. A cop caught shoplifting. City thugs threatening restaurant patrons with a gun to the head. What next?

They wanted to go to the mall, but they were not allowed.

They wanted to take part in a youth activity in the town, but there were none.

They wanted to participate in a school related get together, but there were none.

They wanted to spend time at home with their families, but there was no one at home. Mom and dad work 2 jobs to pay the taxes after the reassessment and tax increase.

They knew they couldn't hang out on their neighborhood streets...Scott may be on citizen patrol. They weren't willing to pay with their lives for some fun.

So they were hungry, and they went to Denny's.

Wally and Beaver, Greece, NY style.

Some of you are really stupid. Some criminals from the city came to Greece to cause trouble. Victims called 911 and the GPD was there in a flash to capture and arrest the bad guys. This story is reason to celebrate the GPD and you morons try to put them down, Don't let the door hit you in the butt as you leave Greece, but don't blame Greece taxes for driving you out, those problems are in DC and Albany.

SCATS said...

To 1:13PM ~~ Wow ... your tone sounds very familiar, especially the use of your favorite word ~ "stupid." ;) I thought you were on sabbatical. Oh well ... now to correct your misrepresentations of the facts.

First of all, how do you know they "came to Greece to cause trouble"? I bet that you don't know that. Secondly, they weren't arrested at Denny's. Police set-up a traffic stop on Ridge Rd. That is how they apprehended these thugs. And last but certainly not least, I see nothing that "puts down" GPD.

If you actually owned a home, you'd know about Greece taxes ;)

BLOG Administration has once again enacted Comment Moderation ... thanks to the comments veering towards name-calling and the utterly ridiculous.

For anyone who doesn't know by now, two words I have little tolerance for on here are "idiot" and "stupid", especially when they are directed towards people, instead of ideas.

Congratulations 12:35 - looks like you hit a raw nerve in Mayberry!

Good one SCATS!!

Here is my take on it. Some people wil always try to excuse away the actions of anyone and everyone by blaming society and outside factors (12:35pm). Suuuuure, these people are good, honest hard working, want a better life. But with no one catering to them by offering programs, they have no choice but to end up the way they did. God forbid any of them, with the yearning they have to be decent citizens, start anything positive in the community themselves.

Then there are other people who always want to make the point that any generation younger than theirs is inherently awful and lookng to cause problems (1:13pm). It's neve a case of poor immature decisions and there is no hope for rehabilitation.

You can't lump everyone into the same group all the time. And you can't make conclusions based on these very limited articles.

SCATS said...

I guess I read 12:35's comments in a different context. To me, it sounded like a sarcastic parody about the way things are in Greece: curfews at the mall, elimination of certain youth programs by the town and schools(to keep our taxes "low") ... Of course, none of those excuses the gun incident.

Everyone in Greece is quick to point a finger. The Roderick Scott case divided Greece into many factions. Some blaming him, some blaming the boy, some blaming the parents, some blaming the system.

But what people fail to realize is that each one of those is what makes up "us"...

Anonymous said...

I read 12:35 the same way you did SCATS.

SCATS said...

To 1:51PM ~~ While I agree with you, I want to point out that Greece was divided in many different ways long BEFORE that case. I blame the politicians. It's their show to run.

On a different subject- anybody know what happened to Long Pond Family restaurant? We stopped there Friday ready for a nice fish fry and found they are closed down. What happened?

SCATS said...

To 3:32PM ~~ I have no idea, but I saw it was closed recently too. Maybe they didn't pay their C of C dues ... ?

There was a sign on the door that they were on vacation. That sounds weird. Maybe board of health issues?

That was once run by people related to the Olympia Restaurant on Stone Rd another bunch of folks Auberger screwed around. I don't if the same people owned it now,

SCATS said...

To 5:42PM ~~ Hmmm ... perhaps you are correct about them being away on vacation. Now that you mention it, they have shut down for that in the past. I didn't see a sign, but then I didn't get out of the car. It was obviously closed and dark. It looked empty.

To 6:10PM ~~ I think you might be confusing the Olympia restaurant that opened on Flynn Rd. for the family you mentioned. They took over what used to be Jan's Restaurant after losing the Stone Rd. location.

Scats
I am aware of the Flynn rd. move.
The restaurant on long pond was once owned by a relative of the Olympia owners.
Don't know if they are involved in that restaurant noe
