Every day the decline of Saratoga continues...
I read this in the Saratogian HERE
"Police received several calls Thursday night from people reporting that Pierce was threatening people with two knives, describing one as “machete-like” and the other as a large, straight knife, but when police arrived at Vanderbilt Terrace and searched the surrounding area they could not locate Pierce and left."
Does anyone else see a problem here? So we have a maniac with a machete running through public housing and the police could care less. Then he comes back.
Shortly thereafter, police received more calls saying Pierce was trying to force his way into a woman’s house. Again they responded. Again, police could not locate him, but stayed in the area interviewing people and talking to Pierce’s family and friends. Pierce turned himself into police Friday morning at around 10:30 a.m. without incident.
Dam good thing he turned himself in or the man would still be out there. Now if some of the perpetrators of Saratoga Springs unsolved murders would be so kind as to turn themselves in we might actually solve a crime in the city. HERE
But then again they couldn’t solve the early News Years day stabbing that took place in the crowded Metro bar in front of dozens of customers HERE
And what is Public Safety Commissioner “toothy” Christian Mathiesen response to all this you ask? Glad you did. He’s going down to speak at the County Board of Supervisors Tuesday meeting to lecture them about how he is smarter and wise than all of them put together. According to him if they would just listen to his wise council and close the bars at 3 am Saratoga could go back to being a somnolent little town.
Now Anthony "Skip" Scirocco. Commissioner of Public Works is a man with a plan. To combat the ever-growing weeds and decay in the cities once award winning flower beds, Skippy is proposing the cities first Milkweed festival.
This could not come soon enough as even the Congress Park squirrels are showing signs of depression.
This after his original proposal for a dandelion festival was shot down.And how is Marcia White SPAC President holding up in all this heat you ask?
Well I hear she’s doing pretty well in her new three quarter million dollar home.I wish I could say the same about the ballet dancers in this heat.
