Cheap Sam April 20, 2014 at 11:51 am
Really? He allowed minors to bring the alcohol on the bus. The larger problem is thatRead More "Parents" don't parent anymore and the drinking, and drugs along with the teen sex has totally run out of control. It all has now become an accepted behavior. Kids are drinking at 12, 13 and 14 so by the time they are into high school they are full blown alcoholics. Where are the parents? All they have to do is check the kids social media outlets and you can find who, when and where the kids are going to drink or just check their social media the next day and you will find numerous pictures of the past nights events. It's so easy yet it goes on week after week after week. Where are the parents? Probably drinking themselves. Monkey see monkey do!

I feel sorry for the person that died, but I see it all the time, whether it's in Halesite or up inRead More Huntington Station, people just walk out into the street on NY Ave like they own the road. Especially by all the Bodegas. People hanging out drinking and then darting into the road. Not sure what happened in this case.

CAPICU April 19, 2014 at 04:35 pm
Chrissy F...I'm with you on that .The police department needs to enforce Jaywalking Laws.The area inRead More Huntington Station you mention is an area just waiting for another accident to happen.Often you find drunk man standing in the middle of the road and people running across the street showing no regard for their safety and others. Police and Fire department only show up to clean up the carnage after the accident,but no enforcement of the jaywalking laws is ever enforced.The only thing they do is give tickets to anyone driving in that area for a day or two.I do regret what happened to Mr. Jose Lucero and do not accuse him of being reckless or at fault for the tragedy inflicted upon him.

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.

The problem is widespread on Long Island. It happens after every prom, junior and senior. It's aRead More shame that this limo driver will be charged, and his life ruined. Yes, it is sanctioned by many parents, due to the desire for their kids to feel "normal". It's that widespread. I think it's time we hold the kids responsible for their own behavior. 42 kids drunk at 16 and 17 ... make them put in some serious time volunteering over the summer. A financial consequence will only hurt the parents. Or perhaps the stain on their record can keep them from obtaining a drivers license until the age of 21. They are old enough to know what decisions they are making. The kids know there will be no consequences for their actions.

It is understandable that people assumed the worst when learning about a 35 year old taking photosRead More in a school. I certainly thought someone was casing the place for a future crime when I first heard the report. BUT...if you knew James you would know that he is a perpetual man child who often posts photos of himself in the woods and other remote areas. I know this is hard to believe, but if you knew James it would make sense. I'm in no way making excuses for trespassing. He knows he screwed up, and is upset how this reflects on his character.

So the only remarkable thing about that is your math skills, or lack of.

John April 4, 2014 at 09:12 pm
@Susan Yes I can fill in gaps and NEW STUFF going on in the Chris Boutin case very well for you. IfRead More anyone cares has been following his case (hearings, motions, bail etc) very easily done on webcrims they would be up to date, but it appears most have not so i will bring everyone up to speed. Christopher was picked up and charges with 3 counts of a controlled sale ( Heroin ) from his driveway to alleged undercover police. Chances are these undercover police they speak of was simply a customer who got pulled over leaving the home of MR Boutin as police watched, They was given two Options. Go to jail or work with them to take down MR Boutin with hard evidence they needed and be there RAT they needed or as i will continue to reefer to him as there (CI) Aka confidential informant. Chris was booked with a 2 misdemeanor charges of possession and 3 counts of Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance 3rd Degree schedule 1 dangerous drug. The Judge set his bail at 20k cash or 40K bond. He remained in custody. His next hearing the Judge ordered his bail set to 40k cash or 40k bond, He remained in custody. Around march 5th while Chris was still in police custody/county jail a NEW 4th felony charge, Possession of a schedule 1 dangerous drug with intent to sell and a judge ordered his bail set to 50k cash, 50k bond. It also mention's a Grand Jury in his webcrims report a more then once. From looking over the fact's in this one would come to believe another Agency that was not present during the arrest, possibly the DEA or DRUG TASK FORCE had pending charges of a past sale of heroin since new charges were added on while in custody during one of his court dates. It would also appear buy the mention of a grand jury that Chris has not accepted or most likely the prosecutor has not yet offered a plea bargain for a lighter sentence. It's extremely possible since another felony charge was added there could be more charges on-going that he does not know about yet, and this is why no plea-agreements have been made. I looked up his past criminal history in the state of NY to see if this was his first offense or not. It shows a misdemeanor arrest of Paraphernalia possession of Hypodermic syringes or needles from a few years back but does not show charges if there was any or if the case was thrown out. It looks like he is facing 8 to 15 years upstate NY, and with good behavior will be out in 5 or 6. PS as in the Boutin Case, Confidential Informant's (who only have to testify in a trial, but there name will appear on Chris's paperwork for him to see eventually ) undercover police usually is slang for it was a busted customer who used a police issued video and voice recording device placed in the car to do 3 or 4 buys. They will not tell the public, This way other dealer's do not read about all the busted customers used to put charges on drug dealers. A way to keep them out of the Loop and in the dark so to say. The same reason the words phone tap are not often printed in articles. So they think they don't use them around here. The word's you do not hear somebody does not want you to hear for a reason, This way people have no idea it happens every day to make drug bust's or else cases wont hold up in court.. All Tools, Tricks, lies and deceit used buy the police since the 70's.
John April 4, 2014 at 09:12 pm
My all time favorite. Police arrest 2 best friends for what-ever the case might be, Then put eachRead More friend in separate rooms telling one friend his buddy is talking up a storm about him, confessed its him, or about to tell us everything, So now is his last chance to do the right thing and be the only one out of two who are going home tonight when that door close's behind us, if not your friend will be the one to leave. So the one friend being pressured hard knows the game's police play so he sits there saying to himself over and over my best friend would never rat me out or Lie and say it was me (when hes not guilty). Eventually hours and hours later your starving and threw one way glass they ask your friend to move rooms and make sure he sees his best friend walk buy eating a bag of McDonald's laughing as the cops tell him a joke about someone else there. So he gets angry and when the police come back in he talks and tells all about his friend. They Won. Meanwhile all they did was tell his friend that they both are not in any trouble and each are allowed diner while they process them before both go home, and offer to pick him up some food when there done eating at McDonald's so his buddy was hungry and all he did was say yes. Meanwhile they just got his best friend to talk with this simple $6 bag of fast food diversion.

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.

Every night we see muggings, car crashes, etc. on the news. Just like those phony red light cameras they create a nice, feel good mindset that has no connection to reality. Likewise, the police seldom prevent crime, although my idea above might work. Long Island is in the middle of a large heroin war, and the young people in HS and up are the users. That is the reason for bank robberies, IMO. We need to recognize this, and work together. The minute that someone is killed in a robbery, folks will talk about armed security. Unfortunately, it won't register on most people until then.
