I'm so glad that I didn't move to Lakeview. Lakeview is nothing more than a jungle and has gone down tremendously. It's heartbreaking to see how once before it was a nice place to live. But now, it's a different story for sure.

Lakeview is a terrible, lawless place with no direction - just decay. Shame on Nassau for abandoning its residents. Shame on Lakeview residents for tolerating this garbage.

The residents don't back the police so the police are hesitant to do their job. The bad guys if they are caught will arrive at Police HQ without a mark on them. They will be further coddled by spineless judges in court and their mamas will go on TV and say my child is a good boy even though his rap sheet is as long as his arm. The gang bangers and drug dealers own Lakeview.

I do not understand how one can indict an entire community over the actions of a few. Crime occurs everywhere. For the most part, just like any other community, the residents of Lakeview are hard-working, law-abiding citizens.

Very true. My son says it's starting to look like "new jack city". Like I said Nassau (and the Feds if gangbangers are present) have forsaken Lakeview. Lakeview residents should start forming angry mobs, replete with torches and pitchforks, and go medieval on those Punks. TAKE BACK THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

It's a shame things like this happen, and residents are quiet about it...Yet when two good hearted people want to start a charter school in the neighborhood to help the youth, they get heated. LAKEVIEW PEOPLE: GET YOUR PRIORITIES STRAIGHT. This isn't the south bronx in the 80s. There is absolutely NO REASON why Lakeview can't thrive. You have to be willing to help yourselves, and therefore be able to help others, or else you live a village riddled with drug dealers & gang bangers.

A few? Are you kidding? do you not read the papers? My personal favorite was the armed robbery of two teens at a bus stop by a gang of men in bandanas! How do a group of armed men walk away (not run) from the scene of the crime, through Lakeview, with raising an eyebrow? Lakeview is not like any other neighborhood... the amount of crime is disproportionately high relative to its population. I will go so far and say that Lakeview is Long Island's version of Newburgh, NY.

what about the innocent because one the men that was arrested is my brother and he is actually innocent there's always more to the story and as far as lakeview being a bad town no doubt about but keep in mind children do not raise themselves the parents need to play there part and maybe if there was more jobs there would be something else for these young adults to do

So then vote for Romney. 4 more years of Obama = no jobs. So if you want the young adults of lakeview to succeed Ms. Cade. Get out and vote and encourage the community to do as well
