Retiring Falls Det. Patrick Stack lived life on the streets

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette —

Stack's wife said she too was struck by the relationships he'd build with those he put behind bars.

"He never hated the bad guys," she said. "There was a guy he arrested who wanted to throw him a party. That's different."

As he turns away from law enforcement and looks to the future, Stack said he's going to spend some time working on his century old home and helping his son with his boat repair shop.

He's also been told he'll be able to continue teaching at the Niagara County Law Enforcement Academy. 

Still, Stack's wife says leaving the Falls police force won't be easy for him.

"The last few days, he can't talk about (leaving) without getting chocked up," Cathi Stack said. "He's gonna miss it. I'm happy for him and for what he did. But I think he'll miss the chase."

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
