Dumb cops
mosco April 24, 2014 at 12:30 am
LBPD and LBFD always overreact to everything. I've been pulled over for minor traffic infractions inRead More this city a few times and it always warrants at least 2 pig cars. PATHETIC!! I bet those cops walked away from this prank pissed wishing this kid had actually shot his family up so it could give them the action they so crave. They've never found a swatter and they wont find this one.

Where's cuomo he's to busy trying to give free college tuition to illegal aliens with his dream actRead More .so give that up.
Massa April 23, 2014 at 11:03 am
What a loser. He deserves more than a year, but glad he didn't get away with it. What sucks is howRead More he disgraced his family over this. He had a good job, just a greedy person.

Stop with stupid marijuana arrests. Alcohol kills 88,000 every year, 11,00 of them mowed down byRead More drunk drivers. Tobacco killed 40,000. Marijuana killed ZERO. That's right ZERO. What the hell do they waste money arresting pot users who cause no social problems like alcohol does. Armed robberies, murders, wife beating, child abuse are all fueled by alcohol.
LB TAXPAYA April 18, 2014 at 03:23 pm
Good Point "Lear Jet". How do you feel about the NYPD stopping the snooping of Muslims?Read More I have mixed feelings. I definitely think they can foil terror plots by snooping, but it does kind of infringe on their privacy. It's a catch 22.
Bob West April 19, 2014 at 07:52 am
@Learjet- I appreciate your resistance to be "pigeonholed" and especially your commentRead More above about wasteful enforcing of pot laws with limited resources. Not to be picky, but you might want to clarify your above post- looks like maybe a typo. "National security and terrorism intelligence is something that should very loosely restricted." I think I know what you mean to say, but others might not. Thanks for your often "think out of the box." comments.

I think you're barking up the wrong tree ........The commentators on this page can't answer youRead More questions..Amigo
Ralph Cavaliere March 31, 2014 at 09:24 am
To Christopher Wendt, Where did "Jack" say anything salacious in his comments on theRead More Hofstra student's death? ALL avenues of the cause of death should be explored...A young man, not yet in his prime, is a most unusual death. As far as I'm concerned, suicide is a criminal act as is homicide. It is still killing someone, even if self inflicted.....By the way, salacious is the wrong word to use in your point of view. I see nothing "salty" in his comments.

We Are Penn State April 21, 2014 at 11:23 pm

John E. Law March 18, 2014 at 03:40 pm
Lola, stop being so politically correct. If you live in Garden City you realize you're surroundedRead More by garbage from all sides...black, white, and hispanic people. Yes, not all black, white, and hispanic people are bad. Yes, we have a lot of white trash too here in GC..not LIGHT trash....I'll say it again...WHITE trash who commit crimes too. We have White trash junkies that live in GC committing crimes too. But it wasn't a "light man" in your terms who pistol whipped a young female Garden City resident last week and stole her phone either. Color has a lot to do with crime. Name one black community in America that people are saying "I need to move there". It's not happening....it's reality. Al Sharpton is not your friend.

Verlia M. Brown March 13, 2014 at 08:26 am
In this day and age this should not have happened.Infection control which this falls under should beRead More strictly followed. In order to maintain your nursing license every four years a nurse nurse must take an infection control course. An investigation should be done and this nurse should be reported to the New York State Office of the Professions for professional misconduct. No magnetic status should be given to this hospital.American Nurse Credential Center should be informed. Stay strong folks and be positive. Good luck to all. Berlin m.Brown, RN.

Dee March 13, 2014 at 09:34 am
The news is making her seem as if she was "living a lie", and all I was trying to say isRead More that skipping school and not telling your parents is COMPLETELY normal. I myself was skipping college classes as a 20 year old and I didn't want my parents to know about it. This doesn't mean that she was a deceitful person. May she rest in peace.
LS March 13, 2014 at 01:26 pm
This is so sad. I had hoped they would find her staying with someone her family didn't know, andRead More she would be returned safely home. The parking lot at that location might not be empty at night because there is a car rental business there, I believe. Still, I should think the police would wait to state a cause of death until there was a medical examiner's determination. Rest in peace.

Look at the State Trooper car in the photo: roof shows "3K10" while plate showsRead More "3K18". Either they can't put the right plate on the right car or some other shenanigans are going on here. And these are the guys who determine drunk or sober?

What is with this Singh kiss of death for restaurants? Anyway, I'll miss Christianos. AverageRead More food, awesome atmosphere and bar. Decent pizza. Let me guess. Syosset will get its 12th sushi place.

Jail costs too much. Burn his hands, badly enough that he will lose the use of them for a while andRead More send him on his way. Lesson learned and the taxpayers don't have to pay for his room and board.

middle class welfare is what you are taking about. You just don't know it. The budget (money spentRead More for your taxes) on the "welfare" is spent mostly on the middle class. The media invents this image of "people" living large and doing nothing to earn, you go for it like a hook line and stinker. You guys vote to cut the "welfare budget". You vote against yourselves and you don't know it. Education is a wonderful thing, There is a reason it costs so much. It's really worth it. Wish you all the best.

Selina: The mother would say because Republicans are holding her, as a woman, back she has to workRead More three jobs and doesn't have the time to monitor her daughter. It is always someone elses fault.

Re: pot v alcohol ... The statistics speak for themselves if you can take the time to really analyzeRead More them. I know several doctors that like the weed instead of drinking. I never ever heard of someone getting stoned and beating his wife although I know of a few who have after a six pack. And no kids should not be doing either. That's on the parents or lack of them.

Patchogue snoops you're a straight up retard. Ou country is on a downward spiral also. I could go onRead More and on about why, but the topic were talking about is heroin. switzerland, portugal, uk, australlia, canada all places seeing positive results.. were not talking about whether its good or bad yes it is bad i don't think anyone in there right mind would say its positive but its a matter of containing the problem you're the type of old stubborn retard stunting the growth of mankind. keep your stupid comments to yourself patchogue snoop . why not stop crime by giving it to addicts to cut out the crime part? i feel almost as dumb as you reading your comments did you graduate high school?
