Deportation? I'd say the death penalty, if that were an option. Gilberto Muniz was the catalist behind my brother's murder and he only served 8 months in county jail. The only comfort I've had is that I know he's a bad seed and that he'd eventually get in trouble again. Hopefully, the courts won't show him any mercy until he makes restitution for what he's done to my family and my brother's son.

He was probably born here but looks like he should be in Africa.

Back in the old days turds like this were shipped off to Viet Nam and with a little luck didn't come back. Why doesn't Ya-mama-Obama ship this guy to Africastan before he breeds instead of putting him in a cage that I have to pay for.

Alcohol's supposed to do that. Maybe the beer companies should be cited.

first of all the lady wasn't a married woman! she was with Gilberto for 6 or so years, but you would have never known that by the action that Gilberto took n the streets. Yes in PR things would have been alot worse, BUT this is the US! Conspircey is a crime as well, look it up. Gilberto WENT to Lark Street to Johcy's garage with intent! plans whatever you want to say, if the fight got out of hand then maybe Gilberto shouldn't have picked a fight against someone that was bigger and stronger! For this no he's not going to only get 2 years~did you read or know the facts? A felony class A, B and E! Gee I wish I could have u for a laywer if you think Gilberto will only get 2 years!? ITs not a fact if one gets life or not its the mere fact that if you do the crime you do the time. And no it will not nor never make anything different for his time served becuase that will not and can not bring back a loved one. But the pain of knowing Gilberto cannot have a life for a while, kiss and or hug his family or loved ones would be a lil satisfactory.

I read all the comments,@WTF and Still Grieving my sincere condolences go to you and your family. I didn't know Jochy personally but my son did, he attended the funeral.He spoke highly of him,@amsterico just ask yourself "what if the shoe was on the other foot?" In any case I moved my family from the worst part of Queens,to live in a better enviroment. Unfortunately people move to small towns such as Amsterdam and try to bring that NYC mentality with them,when in reality if they were in NYC they wouldn't act that way.I grew up in the projects, and it wasn't easy which is why I chose to raise my children here.Anyway the new generation of kids need to be educated well in regards to quality of life,Amsterdam can be a decent town if the schools actually cared to educate the children and if there were more jobs or even transportation to get to decent jobs outside of Amsterdam. Everybody isn't on WIC and Welfare,but if some people are, trust its not because they have much of a choice.So I'm going to finish by saying "If Amsterdam really cared about the youth in this town they would have more activities for the kids be it Hispanic,Caucasian,or African-American as well as financial status.

Why is it such a big deal that three scummers from amsterico got arrested for a controlled substance?

That type of arrest should be happening every day out there.

I used to live in Troy.
But I always went to Amsterdam for my drugs.

Have to admit...I never saw a "good" part of Amsterdam so I'm not sure one exists

LOl, I was just joking with Kaili. I do live in Troy but near Hudson Valley. I've worked in Amsterdam doing telecom and there are some nice areas there as there as some nice areas in Troy (I just haven't found them yet, J/K) as far as drugs I can get my Blue Moon Beer less than a quarter of a mile away at Price Chopper.

Southside baby.
That is where we live,we call it "little Italy".
It is the first exit before you cross the bridge to amsterdam.
Also Hagamen is nice too,it is right outside Amsterdam.
There are some nice areas,I have lived here all my life,I know
it is hard to believe,but there are a few nice spots left.
