Yes brookhavenconfucius .... we are half way there. They just left out race of person attacked. IRead More was able to find this at another site...... "Riverhead police are looking for the men who severely beat and robbed a 33-year-old Hispanic man on the railroad tracks in Riverhead this afternoon." The man is also in critical condition. Get this! "The victim, whom police described as undomiciled..."

Frank, ACTUALLY, SCPD is forbidden for reporting illegal aliens, IN ANY TYPE OF POLICE INCIDENTRead More REPORT. THIS was an outcome of the Lucero lawsuit, and the 2009 DOJ probe. SO, if one gets into some kind of police incident, and you're white..YOU ARE SCREWED, in Suffolk County, ALONG WITH THE TRUTH !

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.

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.

Well put definition Scott, seemingly describing Maryland State Troopers to a tee.

Archie Bunker- I think you need to take a refresher math course. They wanted to sell the stock inRead More 2010, and contacted the police in 2011. Not sure how your math turned that into "2 years to report it" Taking into account that different years can be as little as one day apart, and I'm sure they spent some time waiting for the nonexistent check to arrive, and trying to get in touch with him. So the only remarkable thing about that is your math skills, or lack of.

@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.

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.

Watched the episode of TC's visit to the jail last night as it aired on tv......I am no theologianRead More nor an expert in the battle between the good and the evil but I fail to see how this evil described by the "expert" above controls what she feels and says. In fact 1 inmate was so at peace with herself and also stated it was time to begin making good decisions. I just wonder if the ones who cannot see good in anything and have such negativity are really the ones being controled.

Gabe Gonsalves is Ann Nassauer and Bill Walsh. Whoever is deleting my posts, check the phone number.Read More You will see that the person complaining lives in North Carolina. I already spoke to Henry Powderly about Ann and Bill using a fake name to attack me. He said he would research it. So, there is more to the story, Elizabeth. Again, check caller id from the person(s) calling you, and you will see that I am correct. You have it reversed. I am the one being continually stalked by my sister and her husband, using the fake name, "Gabe Gonsalves."
Martha Nassauer April 15, 2014 at 01:03 am
Gabe/Bill, you can insult me all you want, I am not the judge of you guys. But insulting the BeingRead More who provides us with moral laws to live by through His Word is a different story. I relayed a few of these standards relating to the topic of this news story. His Word defines His expectations of certain practices, in this case, "mediumship," or communicating with the dead. He laid down His "rules," I merely referenced them. When you discount and deny these truths, you can remember Psalm 94:16, "Who will stand up for me against evildoers? Who will take his stand for me against those who do wickedness?" Or, Matthew 10:32, "Therefore, everyone who acknowledges Me before men and confesses Me [out of a state of oneness with Me], I will also acknowledge him before My Father Who is in heaven and confess [that I am abiding in] him." When you called my acknowledgment of His truth a "rant," you chose the side to deny His truths, thereby denying Him. You can mock, criticize, attack, and say whatever you want about me. Just remember that in doing so, you are taking enormous spiritual risks with your own soul, and those of your family as you are the "head of household," according to your Christian tradition (as you married in the Catholic church I am guessing you are still a Christian).
