Six cars had their windshields or windows broken Thursday night in West Hemsptead.

You need a problem to see a cop, and its always after the fact.. Maybe they should earn their future pensions by doing their jobs and patrolling all the areas they are supposed to be protecting instead of sitting in their cars in a parking lot somewhere....

Come on are you serious? The 20 cars this happened to in massapequa have NOTHING to do with this? Just like the spree of cars sitting on BRICKS in west hempstead had nothing to do with the exact same crimes that hit massapequa right after WH right?? It amazes me that the only time I see a police vehicle in WH is if I drive to either the gulf gas station on Nassau blvd or the fire dept on the turnpike. All while hard working ppl are falling victim to these imbisles that find enjoyment in vandalizm... Yeah let's shut down the 5th.... Because THAT makes total sense.

Don't you people realize it's the cops breaking peoples car windows. Threatening our elected officials has not worked. We now need protection from our protectors.
