Lets hope that Erics arraignment on gun and drug charges in Lawrence District Court results in a a higher bail this time. This guy has got to stat behind bars and have his communications monitered. If not,andEric is allowed out on bail, then the victim is going to have to go into hiding or get police protection. What an idiot judge, letting this guy out on bail

You people know nothing. The two businesses that Eric owns are very successful. Just because they came up with bail does not mean they are in the mob or that Eric deals drugs. Get a life.

What is wrong with all you people? I have known Eric for many years and he is just trying to make an honest living just like the rest of us. Put yourself in his shoes what would you do if someone you employed was stealing money from you? I can say that if he did do this then why would the guy wait until the next day to come up with the story he came up with? Well I look at it as he was trying to make the first move so he wouldn’t get in trouble for steeling from the store… So now what he gets off with out anything….. Right and Eric and his family pay the price… So all I have to say is give the guy a break and don’t convict him with out getting the whole truth.

Come on Metal! That is what laws are for. Sounds like this guy wanted to take the law into his own hands. Maybe he's not a goomba, but it sounds like he has watched too many episodes of the Sopranos.

the whole thing seems very sordid. now the courts will sort it out.

This is exactly what I am talking about you guys are only seeing one sided and not both sides. As far as the gun how many people out there have guns in their home that aren’t legal I guessing a lot. Don’t talk too much about the drugs because you don’t really know what it really is other than cocaine…. And whoopee shit that makes him a mobster? I don’t think so… Most of the people making these comments are probably doing or have some type of drugs in their life too. So lay off him and have an open mind.

It doesn't make him a mobster, it makes him a criminal.
You know you has illegal guns at their home? Criminals.
So you're right people should stop calling him a mobster, just call him a criminal and be done with it.

Anyone who's known Eric knows he is pure scum. They found the bloody bat (pieces), unregistered guns and 12 grams of cocaine in his safe at home.

"Sideri" has always been synonymous with "slimeball" all his life, has NEVER had a legitimate business that wasn't a front for money laundering.

Tough guy Sideri (who is FAR, FAR from "muscular" unless you consider short and fat to be muscular)) is a ballless (unless he has baseball bats, guns and outnumbers you)p--sy who has been in prison before for cocaine dealing and assault. His luck has run out this time - from what I've heard - they got him and others close to him on a wide variety of charges. Feds are all over this one.

All of those in the Merrimack Valley who know him are going to really enjoy watching him crash and burn.

Frank, So you are telling me that you don't do anything that is illegal? is that what you are saying? Come on will ya who are you trying to kid?
I would be willing to bet that 50% of the people out there that are good up holding citizens out there that if were looked at under a micro scope would be caught doing something that was illegal including you. So don't kid yourself

Eric is not necessarily a "mobster" and everything that happened at the restaurant that evening are just "allegations" at this point but there's no denying he is a criminal. He was found with an illegal firearm and an illegal substance in his home, he doesn't exactly sound like a model citizen to me and he's certainly not someone I want living next door to me. I am really disappointed because I love the food, but will no longer give a thug like that another dime. Even if he's found not guilty of the crime he has been accused of, I really don't feel like using my hard earned money on someone that is going to blow it up his nose.

Hey Metal - you been standing too close to the fire.......

We are not on trial here - Sid is - No I don't have a gun at my house - never have - yes I may have done some drugs, but that was 25 yrs ago when I was in college..

Where does a hair-dresses get the dough to buy a 2 million dollar house at the beach, drive a 130k mercedes, have 70k in cash at his house...

i've known eric and his dad and brothers for years. they are far from gangsters or mobsters or mafia. in fact, just the opposite. hairstylists by trade. and how many male hairstylists do you know that aren't pickle-smoochers?

wannabees - yes. greasy - yes. effeminate in the jewelry and cologne that they wear - absolutely. tacky and classless - yup. social embarrassments -you got it.

but gangsters ? only in their dreams. they are cowards.

take it from someone who knows.

TO METAL and Others That Support Sideri:

Eric Sideri is a criminal. Yes, that's right: Guns + Coke in his house = a Criminal.

The fact that the alleged victim waited to report this heinous crime is absolutely understandable. He was in SHOCK and FRIGHTENED to come forward, and with very good reason.
Wouldn't you be terrified if someone stuck a gun in your mouth? Afraid that if you spoke it could result in horrible consequences for you and your family? Would you even be capable of thinking crystal clearly, or would you first talk to your loved ones, who would then help you and counsel you to report this? Your bloodied head would be spinning, your world as you knew it would be in utter chaos and you think the first thing you would do would be to "open up" about the event?

Try all you want, Sideri Supporters, but you can't put a shine on this rotten apple.

Metal,
Please tell me you have stopped snorting all those chemicals at Adtec. Putting the words "honest" and "Eric" in the same sentence. Are you for real? There are few more rediculous statments I have ever read!

Metal,
I think the closest you ever got to Eric was a handshake when you got your job. Hey moron, we say these things about Eric because "WE KNOW HIM, HIS HISTORY, HIS CAREER, HIS SCUMMY STYLE, HIS INTENT, HIS HABITS, ETC."

So any way you slice it, your supporting a lousy, loser of a crimminal. You are not supporting all the good people that have felt his sting. C'mon dude! Unhook yourself from this stupid loser!
