Does anyone else think this has something to do with the large drug problem in the Massapequa Park community?

I feel we have the 7th pct to blame again they are lazy and the slowest pct in Nassau county for a reason they do not produce and do not go after criminals.

There are dozs of drug dealers living in Massapequa park and cops do little to nothing about i. They give our kids drugs and we sit back these are our neighbors.

Maybe what they say is correct North of the Tracks Trash. I feel I am trapped in Mass Pk and no one listens, I wrote letters to detectives in the 7th pct about drug dealers and users pushers and nothing ever happens. I bet my letters get thrown in the garbage then they go on a coffee break again.

As a Mail Lady I can stop a 250 LB Rotweiller thats charging at me with pepper spray why can the Nassau Cops stop a 140lb kid with a knife with Pepper Spray, Stun Gun and some clubs?

No need to shoot, cop was so dumb he shot his partner another cop proof he did not know what the F he was doing!!!!

Why do the tax payers buy Stun Guns for Nassau Police, Mace, Pepper spray,Rubber bullet shooting guns if the Cops are not willing to use them? We spend a lot of tax $ on those items for Nassau Cops I think this would have been a perfect case to use a Stun Gun, tear Gas, Rubber Bullet shooting shot gun?
Cops had time to get the parents out of the house, and the kid was in his room they had distance between themselves and plenty of time to execute alternative means of arrest or restraint.
How come Postal workers can stop 200lb dogs with razor shape teeth at 20 MPH with mace / pepper spray but a Nassau Cops can't stop a 120lb kid with a knife unless they use 9mm bullets?
I watch cops all the time, they stop psychos, people on Heroin, emotional disturbed, with knives with stun guns and mace all the time with out the use of Bullets.
Joe you are so correct. The Nassau cops first of all overpaid and under worked and under trained. They are yahoo cowboys who prefer to shoot first and get questions later with alot of praise for anything they do. The Nassau cops have plenty of time to call for back up, or anyother service, they forced the kid to leave his room. He was in his room and made no attempts to leave until they said they were coming in. Poor kid really only scared a neighbor thats his only offence, and Nassau cops shot him.

The kid was in his room, cops had time to remove the parents from the house. The cops should have stepped back called in a Sgt or Lieutenant with back up with more equipment.

All Anthony did was scare a lady by going in front of her car. The kid was orderd out of the room by Nassau cops or they were coming in after him. He got scared, he was a little retarted the poor kid. Cops made a poor decision. I bet Nassau officers were chilling in the near by fire house before this happened shoes off, drinking there free 7-11 coffee.

I was visiting a friend in Massapequa last year pulled over by Nassau Police in 7th pct, they had guns drawn on me before I could go for my wallet. I was driving a all black 2009 BMW 745 with tinted windows. I was thrown to the ground and frisked; the 7th officers kept saying stop resisting or will shoot you @ss black man.

When the Police ran my drivers license, and found out I am an football player they said sorry it is a misunderstanding and a mistake. I files harassment charged against all the officers by my claim was dropped - no surprise Huh? I seen how quick Nassau police were to draw Guns on a innocent man black man from out of town.
