Gazette missed the boat with victims story

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion The issue of gun crime is serious, but local protestors aren’t serious about solving the problem, either wanting attention more than a solution or they’re totally clueless about the problem.If students walked out of class to protest abortion, bring our troops home from the Middle East, or anything else, would the Gazette print articles about it and the school treat them like heroes? What good does a League of Women Voters bus to Washington D.C. accomplish, other than giving them an outing and a chance to preen?The Gazette ran a truly sad story about 16 tragic gun deaths that impacted Schenectady over the last several years. The victims and their stories deserve to be remembered and mourned. But the Gazette failed to identify the common factor in each of those murders: the victims were all killed by persons not licensed to own or use guns.JOE GRYGASSouth ColonieMore from The Daily Gazette:Albany County warns of COVID increaseEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationlast_img read more

first_img 9 months ago NFL: Colin Kaepernick to make his long-awaited return to the NFL? First Published: 19th November, 2019 12:53 IST 9 months ago Colin Kaepernick gets help from Hip-Hop mogul Jay-Z in NFL star’s recent workout: Report Three years without an NFL showing had little effect on Colin Kaepernick’s workout as he displayed a glimpse of the skills in his arsenal at the Charles R Drew High School in Atlanta. Kaepernick has been out of the NFL for three whole years after the NFL owners allegedly froze him out of the league. However, after coming to a settlement with Colin Kaepernick, the tensions between the NFL and the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback took another turn after Kaepernick’s workout last weekend. For starters, the NFL had organised a workout of sorts for Kaepernick at the Atlanta Falcon’s Facility. However, Colin Kaepernick refused to show up at the venue on account of the enforced media blackout at the location. Kaepernick, therefore, changed the venue to the high school in Atlanta at the last minute, with the media also in attendance. Also Read | Colin Kaepernick’s NFL History, Timeline Of His Protest Against Racial DiscriminationNFL news: Colin Kaepernick’s contract a no-showAfter a reported last-minute change of location, it seems that only eight out of the 25 teams’ representatives showed up for Kaepernick’s workout, according to his agent, Jeff Nalley. Nalley admitted that he had spoken to a number of the representatives and he hopes that Colin Kaepernick will get a contract with an NFL team very soon. He also admitted that he was rather pessimistic about Kaepernick’s chances at the moment, considering that he had not heard from any of the NFL teams on a contract for Colin Kapernick so far.Also Read | Myles Garrett Net Worth, Annual Salary, Steelers Brawl And NFL Suspension Colin DCunha WATCH US LIVE 9 months ago NFL Brawl: NFL or WWE?
