On Nov. 25, the Cicero Town Board unanimously passed a modification to Local Law 152-4c, which deals with brining dangerous instruments into a town park. Although this issue did result in lively debate by some of the residents present, I strongly support the board’s decision. Much of the concern by some of the residents was the wording and definition of “dangerous instruments capable of causing physical harm.” I would like to explain the purpose of this amendment and how the police department intends on enforcing this local law. I believe that there are some misconceptions on its intent and perceived abuse.

Brandy Dallas had an order of protection against her estranged husband, but it appears it didn’t do her any good. In July, Justin Dallas was arrested after allegedly holding her against her will. He was charged with unlawful imprisonment, second-degree menacing, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child. A judge issued a temporary order of protection, ordering Dallas to stay away from Brandy Dallas. But he didn’t heed the order. According to the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Department, Dallas’s estranged husband, Justin Dallas, 26, went to the home where she was staying at 915 Second St. in the village of Liverpool, owned by Samantha Rainwater, 30, on Monday, Oct. 28. Deputies say he then argued with his wife and stabbed both Brandy Dallas and Rainwater multiple times. A third woman in the home, who has not been identified, received superficial wounds, as well as minor injuries when Dallas pushed her down the stairs. Dallas was apprehended by Liverpool Village Police and Onondaga County Sheriff’s Deputies. He has been charged with murder in the first degree, two counts of murder in the second degree and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree. He pleaded not guilty and is being held without bail. So what good is an order of protection? Is it worth any more than the paper it’s printed on?
