I lived on Fire Island for over 25 years in Ocean Beach or neighboring towns. I always found Officer Hesse to be a decent man. That does not preclude the possibility that he did what he is accused of. Ocean Beach in the summer is filled with rude drunks who abuse the priviledge of walking the sands of a beautiful and mellow beach town. The cops are trying to keep the peace and put the creeps in their place. But I have heard of frequent abuses of power by the cops, and numerous physical savagries committed by the over zealous "pigs" over the years. I hope the facts come to light and justice is done, and I hope the disrespectful drunks are barred from the peaceful shores of Fire Island.I now live in Hawaii and am happy to be here.Aloha.

I have good reason to believe the allegations are true. Year rounders get special treatment (I was one) and summer renters are treated badly. The store owners and contractors are afraid to say what they really see. A corrupt police force that thinks their summer job is a vacation and actual police work interferes with them having a good time and chasing women.

Maybe Hess had sex with that real estate agent for her to get out of a speeding ticket!!

The store owners and Bar owners are NOT afraid. They are part and parcel of the institutionalised corruption that permeates the entirety of Fire Island. These scoundrels have a very cushy relationship with these cops.
These cops carry themselves like the personal militia of these bar owners.
Is no one else frightened that these thugs carry guns ???
Is no one else frightened that these thugs are STILL on duty ????

In all this, Where is Ed Paradiso the Chief of Police. I never see a mention of him or Natalie Rogers. They were in charge. Not Hesse and not Loeffler. I bet those 2 are sitting scared right now. All this should fall on them. They left this bag of crap to be sorted and fixed by other people. Are they not accountable. Natalie rogers lied and protected Paradiso all these years. Now its catching up. They are the corrupt. They let these 5 cops get out of control. They should all be in jail.
