Pure genius...............where's the person who wrote in that this "stuff" happens everywhere? OK, tell me the last time a "similar incident" happened in a court room in Rye, Harrison, Mamaroneck, White Plains, Yonkers? Port Chester is the Landing Zone for stupidity ; a lot has to do with the over crowded houses where this stupidity seems to breed. Because we ALLOW it. Thank God for the PCPD.
