Such outstanding citizens we have in our midst....they are all probably on food stamps etc. This Suffolk county is giong downhill real fast..too fast for me....time to leave...

To assume that these criminal types are on food stamps is an insult to those less fortunate who are struggling to feed their families. Why do people like you make these types of assumptions? Should I assume you are ingnorant?
