Yeah because graffiti is a major crime ....... Whaaaaat!!! Who cares about that.

Really, how many of these Troopers drank underage? Please, enough already, go after the illegal gangs moving drugs into our area.

Again with this? I'm all for responsibility and such, but this has to be about the 3rd time in a year's span I've seen this happen. I know it's against the law, but is this really needed? Go find out who's tagging up the Cortlandt train station with graffitti instead. Set up a nice sting where you can sit and wait for the perps - probably end up cheaper than this initiative where they're targeting the same businesses over and over.

If the same businesses are serving liquor to minors ..."over and over". then maybe they should be closed!! Enforcing the law is the law and it is for the safety of everyone.
