I don't believe the criticism lies with the LBPD this time.

There most definitely should be a huge fine and FULL restitution for this type of inexcusable crime.Read More This needs to be nipped in the bud and show others that the consequences are very serious.

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.

The following comments are not meant to be construed as being an advocate for teen /under agedRead More drinking, just a personal observation: 1-When I was in HS in the 70s kids aged 13-18 were drinking in their own homes or in parks while parents were out for the eve or weekend. Nothing has changed much there, IMO. 2- my mid + 20 something kids have told me stories of parties in HS where the parents were not only home, but would buy beer & hard liquor (multiple flavored vodkas) for huge parties for their kids & their friends. They would sometimes party with the under aged teens as well. ( not one of my kids were "allowed" to drink before 21 yrs old. Nor in my home, nor at family functions. I wasn't with them every moment of the day to enforce this.) This is nothing new & if you think it is you are delusional. There are good & bad parenting styles. 3- I was once shown Facebook pictures of a 16 yr old local boy loading a few cases of beer onto a party bus for Jr Prom, using a dolly, so tell me that the bus driver was unaware. Perhaps stiffer penalties are needed for the bus drivers, to include the bus company and check ladies purses for drugs & booze smuggled in. Again, some parents are real a------- when it comes to this but some of us are responsible and teach their kids hoping & praying that they do the right thing despite peer pressure. 4- all of my children use taxi service, designated drivers or the train when they wish to drink legally (mid to upper 20s). They were taught at an early age never to get into a car with anyone they felt may have been impaired and so far have called me on 2 occasions to come get them at 2 or 3 am when this was so. God willing they will stay safe. Parents are the first line of defense, but stiffer laws are needed for bus companies & idiot parents who think it's a right of passage. Talk to your local elected officials!

I want to root for the police, I really do; but when some a-hole flies by me, nearly hits my car orRead More is tailgating and I pass a cop who does NOTHING... It really diminishes my faith. They [not all but some] pull people over for bullshit and pull the power trip on innocent individuals who truly made mistakes or non-threatening/harmful offenses. But where the hell are they when the real risks are on the road??? How about they keep their patrols going for the crappy drivers EVERYDAY, and not just some appointed safety weeks.
knee jerk April 23, 2014 at 04:56 pm
Instead of calling it "Speed Week" or some other catchy tune, why not just call it what itRead More really is "Power Trip Week".

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?
susan larkin April 19, 2014 at 08:14 pm
this is what has to happen border patrol and customs step it up, there is an extreme amount ofRead More heroin in this county how come? We are losing our children, it is one of the worst addictions to break. We must open our eyes!

Back in the Day one of my sons begged to go on a trip to Great Adventure that was non sanctioned byRead More our High School. I sad fine and agreed to drive him to the pickup point. I don't think it was unexpected when I said "let me say hi to some of your friends" who had already boarded the bus. I was not surprised to see that the coolers on the bus had a greater variety of alcoholic beverages than I could have ever have hoped to accumulate in my liquor/beer cabinet. Not a word from my son as we walked back to my car. Was it my job in that situation to call the cops?
EG April 20, 2014 at 05:08 pm
Seriously everyone, our modern liberal society coddle's "kids" until they are like 30Read More plus years old. Then when they don't exhibit mature adult behavior, everyone seems dumbfounded. When you're pointing your finger at the "kids" three are pointing back at you
Walter S April 20, 2014 at 06:34 pm
James Barrett may have a point, they were being safeish. Imagine if they rented vans or somethingRead More and were driving themselves under the influence? It isn't cheap to rent a coach bus and I have to believe parents put up the money for this. The parents should be held accountable first if they paid for it and not accompanying the children. Parents should also be held more accountable for the actions of children 21 and younger. Many people bring children into this world and assume no responsibility, this must change.

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.
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.

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.
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.

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.

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.
