Stealing from your employer is always criminal, although most companies would keep this a HR matter, as they originally did until she kept stealing, to avoid the bad publicity. As taxpayers and citizens everyone is entitled to the same rights and protections from the police. It is not up to them to say "we have better things to do" or "we would rather catch real criminals or solve shootings". If you report a crime it deserves to get investigated equally. What may seem unimportant to one person might be very important to another. Once we lose that we begin to lose our free society as we know it. View Comment
Yea it's a setup. He was told to take the FD equipment home and then they called the cops on him, because no one at FD has anything better to do than to "setup" their employees for criminal charges. Duh!! View Comment
Sure, DOT blames the pedestrians. Take a look at how many areas of Rt 1 have no sidewalks! Norwalk, at least, is very lacking especially on Rt 1. We just don't have pedestrian friendly roads. View Comment
Check the crime stats for Norwalk, I believe the numbers were down last year. Ignorant comments from some digruntled drunk or criminal mean nothing without the facts to back it. Norwalk has an excellent PD, you think Stamford or other large towns don't have similar problems? The grass is always greener in the next town, and nothing is stopping you from moving there!

The media is not covering it that much because there are no shootings or dead bodies. The vultures in the media only want the carnage. I think there'll be more info to come we don't know everything yet. View Comment
Another mass shooting thwarted. Two handguns and a rifle in his possession on the school campus, along with his apparent interest or obsession with mass killings is a recipe for disaster. We can't wait until he starts shooting before we act. Almost every mass shooter in the last 20 years had some kind of interest or obsession with other mass killings. Its a game to them, get a higher score (body count) to beat the last guy. It's people like this that need help and other good people need to report when they see or suspect something. Much like the war on terror "see something, say something" campaign. Kudos to the woman who called the police. It's not about banning guns from law abiding citizens, it's about enforcing the laws already on the books and a better mental healthcare system. And for the media to stop glorifying these killers and the nonstop coverage of their cowardly acts so other sickos don't get ideas. View Comment
Not saying all pit bulls are bad, but the fact of the matter is they were bred to be vicious and it's in their nature. Like I said, it doesn't mean every pit bull is going to attack, but certain breeds of dogs are created for specific reasons. You don't see the police or military using golden retrievers to intimidate or fight an enemy. Certain dogs for certain tasks, period. It's the nature and purpose of breeding. View Comment
She was probably neither a wrong supporter or hater, she was mentally ill and believed Obama was spying on her in her Stamford home. Paranoid schizophrenia. She was probably going to White House to put a stop to the spying. View Comment
Let's wait for the results of the investigation before we start to second guess and judge. On its face, it could appear that the woman was not a threat, but also driving a speeding car through or towards barriers at the Whitehouse will be considered a threat in today's times. View Comment
Portable classrooms? You'll be lucky to get paper to cover your windows! It's nothing compared to every other school district around, big and small, that contributed much more. Greenwich and Stamford are putting millions into their schools security upgrades. Norwalk is putting aside100K for 19 schools! That'll barely pay for door locks. What about all the other security issues? We can't even get school books for all our kids, they have to leave them in school so they can "share" them! This is nothing more than a "feel good" measure by the city to make it look like they care. Smoke and mirrors! View Comment
People are trying a little too hard to find a reason to attack the police in this article. Kids were injured and thank God they are all ok. The police, fire, ems, volunteers and parents all helped make sure everyone was treated.
Some of you have obvious issues with the Norwalk Police. Might be a personal problem. View Comment
Nowhere in this area is 95 two lanes. I-95 in Ffld County is all 3 travel lanes. The fourth lane in Stamford and Bridgeport is considered a merge lane to allow traffic to enter and exit safely. They are adding a similar lane in Norwalk by exit 14. View Comment
Studies have shown that prosecuting so called "victimless" crimes has a greater effect on civil order in society. It's a slippery slope when "victimless" crimes are ignored leading to higher crime and a breakdown of a civized society. Also, they are usually related to other crimes, like the degenerate gambler who robs and steals to support his habit.
True, they would call Danbury or State, and both did respond, the State for the Major Crime Unit. Fairfield County also has a "hotline" radio that all towns use. I the call went out on the hotline everyone would have received it and responded accordingly. I understand several other departments were there also at the beginning. Ridgefeld has only like 2 cops working at night, just like every other town in that area, Norwalk has a lot more to spare for a lengthy crime scene. View Comment
Lighten up! He said "tiny" silver lining. A silver lining by definition is something good out of something bad. The construction industry, tree companies and landscapers will all find silver linings in this storm also. Power line and DPW workers are making a killing in overtime, that's a silver lining for them and their families! View Comment
