How is the driver of the bus endangering them? Would you rather have 40 drunk teens drivingRead More themselves?
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!

"The Long Island Limousine Association says while Coachman is not a member of its organization,Read More industry standards call for companies to sign contracts with parents in situations were teens are being transported, and the fine print always bans alcohol for underage riders. It is typically the driver's responsibility to enforce the rules." http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/bus-driver-arrested-southhampton-underage-drinking-party-bus-255370021.html

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.

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

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?
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.

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.

Well, what can we expect....when the government offers a plethora of goodies, when it's likeRead More Candyland, without checks or balances, you are always going to get cheaters and takers.

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.

As I understand it from conversations with numerous representatives of many state agencies,Read More eligibility for Medicaid is based on income, not on assets. While I don't know the details in these cases in the article, even if they were making false claims, would it not be up to the "authorities" to screen applicants and verify eligibility based on info provided and SS#? Just sayin'.
