• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Anyone have a live link or listening to law enforcement traffic of the search for Ralph Phillips?

Watching it on CNN and it looks like the area is crawling with law enforcement.

check the NY State Police frequencies - but remember base/mobile is base frequency - separate car frequency

mostly they are using their tac or alert frequency - car to car/ mobile command to car/ post to post - power is low so you will have to have a good external antenna to receive anything and be close to the area they are working.

also using cell phones, as Bucky may have a scanner

in other words - not a lot of radio traffic except for routine checks, etc.

Shame they took this savage alive.

The funeral for Trooper Longobardo is Monday, September 11th.

A fitting day for Trooper Longobardo. RIP, Trooper, and join your brothers and sisters in Heaven. You've done your time in hell.

I was listening to Greece, N.Y. police dispatch last night and the dispatcher announced his capture. Seemed like every State Trooper in Western N.Y. was looking for him.

mciupa & AEMTKieran are correct

The guy should have gotten a bullet not cuffs, the bastard will now be able to rot in jail but at the taxpayers expense.God rest the soul of the slain trooper.

Yes, he did...like the coward that he is, he fired a high-powered rifle from BEHIND two NY State Troopers, wounding them both. Trooper Longobardo was shot in the thigh, and lost a lot of blood. His leg was amputated the next day, but he still died from his injuries.

Too bad someone didn't walk up to him in court and put a bullet in the back of his head. He's a damned coward!!

RIP, Trooper Longobardo...you did your time in Hell.

Bucky Search Attacked and Defended
by Amy Young
Published Sep 19, 2006
The New York State Troopers union is calling for an independent investigation into the way the search for Ralph “Bucky” Phillips was handled by state police management.


Union president Daniel Defedericis called the summer-long manhunt for Phillips, "poorly planned, poorly organized, poorly led and poorly executed." Three state troopers were shot, one fatally, before Phillips was caught.


Defedericis continued to rip the way the search was conducted calling it, "inexcusable and unconscionable ineptitude of state police management.” The union president wrote a letter to Governor George Pataki and State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer calling for an investigation of state police leaders.

Wednesday, State Police Superintendent Wayne Bennett said he's open to an independent investigation.

Bennett said while his organization conducts its own internal probe into the Phillips' manhunt, he didn't feel it was his place to call for an external investigation.

"Somehow as important as addressing these allegations is going to be, somehow it's overshadowing and taking away from the extremely hard work that was done by the men and women of the New York State Police during the Phillips manhunt and capture and numerous other agencies," said State Police Superintendent Wayne Bennett.

Bennett also said he believes the union's letter will make the public question the effectiveness of the state police.

The NYSP union guy also criticized the NYSP concerning the death of Trooper Andrew Sperr, who was killed near Big Flats, NY several months ago. Somehow I don't think the union's carping on the NYSP administration is going to be received well with the public. People are angry that troopers have died, and most do not want to hear any politicization of those deaths nor the related incidents.
