Sad commentary on several different levels.--------------------------- Leaving cars unlocked atRead More night ------------------------------------------- Leaving electronic gear in your car when unattended ------------------ Poor to non-existent security at parking lots ---------------------------- Need for better management of night patrols by NCPD brass --------- Want of better technology to render stolen plates and GPS units useless if stolen. ---------------------------------------------------- Overly tolerant attitude toward "casual" or "recreational" drug use, tantamount to "legalizing" it without a law in place, with recognizing that teens and YA's still need lots of CASH to pay for it.

Dozens of break-ins into cars in the East End of Long Beach last week. Most had radios stolen. TheRead More LBPD won't take a report when you call them, telling you it's and "insurance issue". That's one way to say crime is down I guess.
Jack April 18, 2014 at 09:00 pm
Where in long Beach were there breakins? Everyone demand that LBPD take a report for theft otherwiseRead More call the DA's office they can take the reort and then report police misconduct to them.

Q. How do you catch a NYS Trooper going off duty. A. You don't, as they're driving much to fast.Read More Nice to have a badge/gun on the highway, isn't it?

You know as much as the NYS Troopers can be pricks, you've got to give them some credit. When theyRead More set up speed traps they get OUT of their cars with radar guns and actually point it at cars, then have a chase car down the road. Unlike most PD's, when they hand you that ticket you have to appreciate the effort that went into it.
Scott Peterson April 18, 2014 at 11:29 pm
In my experiences, the State Police I've encountered in my travels across the country have alwaysRead More displayed a level of courtesy and professionalism I've often found wanting in smaller organizations. I've never encountered a prick as I define the term though were I to include the term to mean one who seemingly allows no exceptions, I could see the term as valid.

What a loser
Massa April 16, 2014 at 08:02 pm
No trial, just get this loser off the streets. 20 year prison sentence would be a good start.

I wonder when they plan on putting the CIA on trial for conspiracy to distribute these drugs...orRead More when they plan on going after the big pharma companies that are the main buyers of the product they're trying to get rid of. With everything the way it is, it is hard to believe that big government and big pharma is not colluding to produce huge profits at the expense of the addicts they cultivate. Look up zohydro...a drug ten times stronger than oxycontin. We have enough problems with oxy, why would you multiply that problem by ten?

Stephanie Steele, no, I did not see the report. By your description, it makes it even worse. BecauseRead More the "Adult" that rented the Party Bus had too know exactly what was going to happen. As for my comment above stating "But the main responsibility should of been with the kids themselves." was from a " they should of known" point of view. Legally, it is definitely the parents responsibility.
EG April 16, 2014 at 09:02 pm
Maybe the "kids" just figured out how much they needed to borrow for college on top of theRead More 100+ grand of debt they each inherited from the current generation of idiots. How can you blame them for wanting to get drunk?
James Barrett April 17, 2014 at 02:32 am
Who cares. Lol. Let them drink. I wish this country would be less soccer mom and more realistic. ToRead More me they were being safeish

Unfortunately for a first time offender this is the average punishment. I would like to see a firingRead More squad myself. In Minnesota they have what is called Whiskey plates. If you get convicted of DWI you are issued new plates that start with the letter W followed by numbers. PE. W35478. So everyone knows your a drunk. So if the firing squad is to much maybe NY could do this
Meri B. Kassner April 16, 2014 at 07:10 am
First offence should be jail time. Maybe that would stop some repeat offenders. Their whole familyRead More is messed up. Ugh.

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.

I'm liberal about some things and conservative about other things. National security and terrorismRead More intelligence is something that should very loosely restricted. If arab muslim terrorists attacked the WTC twice, eventually destroying it and killing 3,000 innocents, they should be watched carefully at all times. The Israelis know this and that's what they do. They profile as a first step of screening and we should too. I think it is nuts to stop surveillance of muslims when they are the terrorists. When they stop the terrorism, we stop the spying--fair trade.

I'm no fan of the cops but what would YOU do in that situation. It is very easy to be a MondayRead More Morning quarterback. I'm sure if the cop did nothing and someone in the building was killed you would be criticizing the cops. Trust me he feels horrible.
Massa April 6, 2014 at 12:49 pm
Ivan, I don't know what you do for a living. It is so wrong of you to make those comments.Paul isRead More right, it is unfair to Monday morning quarterback a situation that you will never or will ever be put in. Try putting yourself in that situation, not an easy job. If someone is pointing a gun threading to shot someone and the pointing a gun at you.... What would you do? Please don't believe everything that these reporters put on the news and in the papers.... Half the stuff is incorrect. This poor officer didn't want to go to work and make that decision to fire his weapon. I am he feels horrible and has to deal with this for the rest of his life. The one who should be held accountable is the judge who let him back on the streets after commiting a robbery.

THE INCIDENTS OF SEXUAL ABUSE AND INAPPROPRIATE CONTACT WITH STUDENTS IN SCHOOLS ON LONG ISLAND ISRead More RISING. IN THE PAST FIFTEEN MONTHS THERE HAVE BEEN ELEVEN ARRESTS OF TEACHERS ACCUSED OF SEXUAL ABUSE. HOW MANY OTHER INCIDENTS HAVE OCCURRED, THAT CHILDREN ARE AFRAID TO REPORT? MOST PARENTS TEACH THEIR CHILDREN TO BE WARY OF STRANGERS. UNFORTUNATELY MOST INCIDENTS OF ABUSE ARE PERPETRATED BY SOMEONE THE CHILD KNOWS. THEY SHOULDN'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT NOT BEING SAFE IN THEIR SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT.

The story says she is from Baldwin. Whoever wrote this article then says she robbed a Payless shoeRead More store in Oceanside but also says the Payless was in Freeport....hmm which one is it?
Christopher Wendt March 30, 2014 at 07:30 pm
People should not be able to to make salacious comments, here, without identifying themselves andRead More their connection (if any) to the events in question. Readers need to be cautious about believing or buying-in to those comments posted by people who most likely don't know "Jack".
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.

The NCPD press releases always include race in their descriptions of perpetrators. Newsday omitsRead More the race of black and Hispanic assailants. GTypical racist coverage as recommended by the New York Sate Press Association to hide the fact that 84% of violent crime is committed by Black males.

Hey Arch: It's OK to "flash your lights", try it sometime, maybe it will set you free.
ARCH STANTON April 1, 2014 at 05:59 pm
HEY K J, YOU CAN BE AS LIBERAL AND FREE THINKING AS YOU WANT TO BE IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE. IN ARead More PREVIOUS COMMENT YOU WERE ALL FOR GETTING DRUNKS OFF THE ROAD AND SETTING UP DWI CHECKPOINTS, WHICH YOU FEEL FREE TO EXCLUDE YOURSELF FROM. YOU ARE ALREADY LIVING IN ONE OF THE LEAST OPPRESSIVE SOCIETIES IN THE WORLD, SO IT'S NOT THAT DIFFICULT TO ABIDE BY THE LAWS. THERE HAS TO BE SOME PREVIOUS PERSONAL HISTORY, THAT MAKES YOU SO VINDICTIVE. I THINK YOUR LIGHTS ARE FLICKERING LIKE RPM'S. ENOUGH SAID ON THIS TOPIC.
knee jerk April 2, 2014 at 09:54 am
Hey Arch, only if those DWI checkpoints include ALL drunks, including off duty cops and MADDRead More members. My lights may well be flickering, but yours went off a long time ago. I'VE ALSO WASTED ENOUGH TIME ON YOU-YOU'LL NEVER GET IT.
