Troy Violence: Looking for an Answer

After a rash of violent crimes in Troy over the past few weeks, councilmen Dean Bodnar and Jim Gordon are calling for changes in how the city polices the streets.

The councilmen claim ever since Mayor Lou Rosamilia appointed a Police Commissioner, the new enforcement motto appears to be "hug a thug."

The Mayor disagrees though, saying enforcement is strengthening under Commissioner Tony Magnetto.  Rosamilia says crime is cyclical and when and where it occurs cannot be predicted.

He says he has an open door policy and invites Bodnar and Gordon to meet with him and discuss ideas to make the city safer.
