    Cops, firefighters, doctors, lawyers, unemployed men and women – everyone and anyone every profession has its share of winners, losers and everything in between. It can happen to anyone – but one things is for sure; when you’re home/apt is burning or someone has stuck a gun in your face who else you gonna call – your mommy?

      Very true. DWI is a serious & dangerous offense and it is committed by people from ALL walks of life. This is not a reflection upon all of the hard working & brave members of the F.D.N.Y. who provide a vital live saving service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If the gentleman in question is found guilty, he will pay the price.

  2. The Truth says:

    Typical trash. Fire the bum because you know more than likely he is drinking on the job along with the rest.

      Could you have posted your stupid comment correctly on the first attempt if you weren’t drunk?

  6. Native Noo Yawker says:

    cops and firefighters are the biggest drinks on the planet. 20 years ago they got away with it, but nowadays, no more
