  •  Police are paid to be smart, and to use judgment. (7+ / 0-)

    I know that comes as a surprise as it often appears not to be the case.

    In this case my guess would be the police soberly looked at the situation, considered the positive and the negatives, and decided to be restrained in enforcing a minor issue. It is theoretically possible the Albany police have decided they do not want to be part of an appearance of a police state under Cuomo.

    In any case it would appear they are setting a good example for forces across the state and the country to consider.

    H'mm. I'm not terribly into this, anymore.
