APD says video shows shooting was justified, Cuomo piling up the campaign cash, Price Chopper says it's also getting on sustainable seafood boat

Said Albany police spokesman James Miller of the video showing the fatal Quail/Spring Street shooting in February: "I think it's pretty transparent that [the officers'] actions in that case were justified." He also said: "If you don't have that video all you rely on would be TV and newspaper reports and people would have to draw their own conclusions by what they're hearing. Now, they can draw their own conclusions by what they're seeing." The video came from two sources -- the dashboard camera from the patrol car and a nearby surveillance camera. [TU] [WNYT] [TU]

Um, alligator?

Some asshat seriously tried to keep an alligator as a pet, and then just ditched it?! You hear about that happening in urban legends, but I had always hoped people really weren't that dumb.

They need DNA evidence to investigate ballot fraud? Makes you wonder what they were doing with those ballots!

I'm trying to process a mother yelling "You shot my mother-[expletive] sons."

My favorite part was when the child killer got the maximum sentence. What was YOUR favorite part?
