John ..the original post was from back on Sept 18 2009. I believe the situation you're referring to occurred today March 20 20011 and was in Westbury on Park Street. An over blown police response (dozens of heavily armed SWAT snipers and an armored vehicle, several ambulances and at least a hundred police officers closing down a entire community.. stores and homes for 7 hours) for what turned out to be nothing more than a domestic arguement (no hostages and no weapons) which dragged out all day Sunday and which should have been resolved much more quickly and quietly when it first occured.

The police ended up causing more anxiety and instilling more fear that Mr. Mitchell ever did, They were running around in full body amour with assault rifles drawn barking at people in the neighborhood to go back into their homes and ended up scaring the hell out of everyone in the neighborhood.. all over NOTHING. No one ever saw this man with a gun , no one saw him with any weapon and no one ever saw him holding or threatening any hostage. The NCPD needs to re-evaluate their over done response and take their quasi militaristic reaction to what was nothing more than a minor domestic dispute. Me thinks they all were just looking for some serious OT before Eddie Mangano has to do some serious cuts in NCPD hours in order to balance the counties out of control budget.

pardon me that should have read:

"The NCPD needs to re-evaluate their over done response and take their quasi militaristic reaction to what was nothing more than a minor domestic dispute under review."
