Just another Day in Mastic: Rape, Robery, Shootings, Drug sales, hookers, Yawn Yawn

A man was shot early Sunday morning on the Poospatuck reservation in Mastic, Suffolk police said, amid what a neighbor described as several minutes of gunfire.

Police said they received a 911 call reporting shots fired at about 5:52 a.m. When they arrived at the corner of Poospatuck Lane and Eleanor Avenue, they found a man on the street with gunshot wounds.

Sorry but you must be smoking crack too. I have lived in Mastic for 46 years and have never heard a gun shot. Don't lump the whole community into the same group as the dirt bags that get dumped out here. We don't want them here either but apparently the Town and the County don't give a damn about us.

James your in denial. Look at all the boarded up houses. Sex offenders living in mastic. dealers selling dope in Mastic deli parking lots.

The Suffolk police actualy just sit back now and take it easy, they have a do nothing attitude in Mastic

Mastic is a ghetto, one bad thing happens after the other in mastic.

Schools are real bad, and have almost no HS to college record. Sad sad town.

The fuuny thing is it was only aprox. 10 mins later after the shooting I was there at the location. I work the overnight shift 5pm-5am and go to the reservation for cigs. two ambulances wizzed by me and as i attempted to make a left turn onto elenore there was the 2 ambulances - about 5 marked cop cars and 1 maybe 2 blk unmarked DT cars.The guy that was shot up was lying on the rd on the left hand side not knowing still wtf happened but not really caring either. I made my way to the reservation on an alternate route.
As i pulled up to the store where I get my smokes the guy who runs it told me that there was a shootout right there in the gravel parkinglot about 10 mins ago still very shaken up from what just happened. A cop then arrived and after being asked a few questions if I saw anything I proceeded on leaving to go home to farmingville where I live. On driving back towards montauk hway there was about 5 cop cars hauling ass towards the reservation . A suffolk police helicopter was buzzing around most likely looking for stupid fucks involved. WOW what a way to end my night and if I was only 10mins earlier I would have been in the middle of the shooting. Anyways theres one good thing about the poospatuck reservation . ANSWER - TAX FREE TOBACCO!!! I dont give a flying that the place is low income . I dont have to live there but i will keep on going there as long as the USA has a greedy corrupt gov. and an a-hole ( gov. patterson ) in office raising taxes on tobacco.

Yeah, you are nuts....our class valedictorian got a full ride to MIT, we had kids going to Harvard, Brown, Boston, etc. We have a great school district that has been over-ridden by the garbage that's dumped here by the county and town. You should put the crack pipe down and mind your own business because you don't know what the hell you're talking about. The tri-hamlet community is mostly middle class, working class. So STFU and stay out of our business and our forums!

This year's Floyd HS Valedictorian was awarded a full scholarship to a well known college called M.I.T.(One of the top universities in the world). The "reservation" is hardly indicative of the rest of the town. They are a cash machine, and they do have problems with drugs, and other criminal activity. They also refuse to tax cigarettes because that would violate their "sovereignty" principal. But, a funny thing happened...when the state raised the cigarette tax, guess what..the indians raised their prices to match (pocketing even more money).

I suggest NY state should put up a border crossing at the gates to the reservation, and make every non-indian declare the tax upon leaving. I am sick of hearing these "indians" come into a store and say "I do not pay tax".

My poo is stuck also, this is the classic example of a Mastic resident. Drungs Guns, welfare, section 8 housing, illegal appartments, driving drunk, (mastastic - pride) at it's finest moment.

I am so sick and tired of hearing what the news and ignorant people have to say about Mastic and Shirley. I have no hookers walking on my block. I pay alot of taxes to live where I live and my children go to Eastport Southmanor school district. When something happens on the reservation lets keep the news there.
Not in all of mastic. mastic is very large. I do not hear the news say a shooting happened on southampton when it happened on the resevation out there. so lets keep it on the reservation next time. oh and you may want to wear some armour in remsenberg as i was stabbed in the back for my pocket book... leave my town alone unless something really happens there. thanks
