Start by checking immigration status on individuals who loiter. Deport violators. Keep that illegal immigration post operational on Depot Road and you will keep having violence.

"We echo your concerns," Petrone said. "We will join you and anyone from your delegation to meet with the county executive, police commissioner. We want answers."
This is a joke... everyone who lives in Hunt. Sta. knows that Pius Realty and Petrone are the reasons why this area has become a war zone... Thanks to Pius Realty and army of slum landlords.
Add in Petrone's ability to stuff taxpayer/special interest money in his pocket as fast as he can stuff a cannoli into his mouth.
The town of Huntington is as corrupt as Obama's Chicago...
But we keep voting them in!!!!!

I used to live in HS. Lived on New York Avenue back in 1980. It was not good back then and we had problems there. It is about time they do something about this.

Yo no se! Be careful when speaking the truth. The liberals who claim freedom of speech will shut you up. The situation sucks and no one has the cojones to stand up. Thank the ACLU and all of the opportunists.

Ahhh, the 1980's! The good old days. Not sure if you have been back here recently...
Hunt. Sta. has seriously declined since the 80's. Sadly, I don't think you would even recognize it.

I felt safe in the 60s.
Last time I was there, I just felt so uncomfortable.(2007)
Like a BACK TO THE FUTURE movie where things are not what you hoped them to be.
#11 Mar 11, 2009
That is a federal issue. Cops are not going to check immigration status.
We can only hope an increased presence of uniforms can curb the violence.

Ruckus over police forms: Suffolk's Levy raps Ramos
Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy is returning fire at Assemb. Philip Ramos (left) in the ruckus over police forms that ask if a crime victim is a temporary resident or a foreign national.
As reported by Rick Brand:
Ramos criticized the county executive regarding the forms after Levy, in a televised speech about Marcelo Lucero’s killing, said police policy is not to ask victims their immigration status.
Levy said Ramos, as a detective and head of the police Hispanic Association, signed 200 police reports with the offending question from 1999 when it was added to 2002 when he retired.“Ramos himself was signing off on these very same forms when he was a police officer and we never heard a peep...that these forms were discriminatory,” he said.
Levy charged Ramos is “bashing the police department” and trying to “create a wedge between the police and the community” rather than to encourage crime victims to come forward.“It goes to credibility,” said Levy.“And one has the question the motive and political agenda of those who makes those kind of inflamatory type of remarks.”
Ramos said as a police officer he filled out required forms, but that he “was not
a policy maker,” adding “It wasn’t me who went on television saying these questions were not being asked of victims.”
He also said Levy’s criticism comes after the county executive said in that TV speech that the sides should “not question each other’s motives.” But, he added,“Here we go again.”

I have been in that area many times over the last couple of years and all the violence has been attributed to the illegal aliens hanging about on the streets along Depot Rd. and New York Ave. There is a large concentration in that area and it is not being addressed either by the town or the Federal Government. The citizens in the area are begging for relief from this situation and they are being ignored. Added to the problem, the local Churches and non-profits are encouraging the phenomena by feeding these folks and keeping them concentrated in that one area as are the illegal alien advocates by screaming "racism" when anyone seeks to deal with the situation. They intimidate the politicians to take a "do-nothing" stance on this problem and the citizens are being preyed upon because they are not the upper-class that lives more in the Huntington Village area. They ignore the whole thing because it does not touch them. If the problem was along Main Street, you would see how fast it would get addressed.

Justice Dept. Investigates Arizona Sheriff for Enforcing Immigration Law
By Penny Starr, Senior Staff Writer
Approximately 200 convicted illegal immigrants handcuffed together arrive at their new part of the jail as they are moved into a separate area of Tent City, by orders of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, for incarceration until their sentences are served and they are deported to their home countries Wednesday, Feb. 4, 2009, in Phoenix.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has launched an investigation of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office in Arizona following requests by congressional Democrats and allegations by liberal activists that the department has violated the civil rights of illegal aliens.
Reps. John Conyers (D-Mich.), Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), and Robert Scott (D-Va.) requested the investigation, and activists groups such as National Day Laborer Organizer Network and ACORN launched petition drives and rallies in support of the probe.
The investigation focuses on Sheriff Joe Arpaio and dozens of officers under his command who were trained through the Department of Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Agreements of Cooperation in Communities to Enhance Safety and Security (ACCESS), which partners federal and local law enforcement to enforce immigration laws.(The Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement division is known popularly as ICE.)
In a letter dated March 10, 2009, Loretta Smith, acting assistant attorney general at the DOJ.
"The investigation will focus on alleged patterns or practices of discriminatory police practices and unconstitutional searches and seizures conducted by the MCSO, and on allegations of national origin discrimination, including failure to provide meaningful access to MCSO services for limited English proficient (LEP) individuals."
Sheriff Arpaio's efforts to enforce immigration laws have been the focus of previous criticism, but Arpaio has defended his department and the results his ICE-trained officers have netted.
Concerning the DOJ’s investigation, Arpaio told CNSNews.com :“I will not back down. What I am doing is upholding the laws of the state of Arizona, and I will not be persuaded to turn my back on my oath of office as sheriff of this county.”
In an August 2008 press release, Arpaio's office detailed those results.
"While the Sheriff’s illegal immigration and human smuggling operations conducted on the streets and roadways here have netted nearly 2,300 arrests, another very successful effort to locate illegal aliens has been quietly happening inside Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s jails," the release said.
It continues: "Despite the growing criticism of the Sheriff’s illegal immigration fight by some valley politicians and activists, Sheriff Arpaio says 60 detention officers trained by ICE officials have conducted over 106,000 interviews and investigations of inmates booked into jail since April of 2007.
"In those 18 months, 16,000 inmates were determined to be illegal aliens. Either they have already been deported or will be deported after being tried and/or serving their sentences for crimes committed in the valley. The work being done be Arpaio’s detention staff is a likely contributor to the recent reduction in crime in the valley,” the press release added.
"That number of 16,000 represents a full one-third (1/3) of all inmates in the United States who have had holds placed on them after being identified by jail or prison officials as illegal aliens."
The press release goes on to say that 20 percent of inmates in the Maricopa County Jail are illegal aliens and that of those, 2,000 illegal aliens - 70 percent - were arrested for felony crimes.
The Democratic Congress members have also asked Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to launch an investigation into the training provided by ICE.

THERE HAS BEEN A COVER-UP FOR Y E A R S ON THE VIOLENCE IN HUNT STA.... mark Cuthbertson and his lacky Petrone have directed the SCPD AND the media NOT to report the SHOOTINGS/STABBINGS that happen CONSTANTLY in the station.
How do I know this?? I work in the E/R at Huntington Hospital!!! Also, no mention of MS-13 involvement, huh, Petrone??????
When these scum start invading your cushy homes nearby perhaps then the people of Huntington will WAKE UP, but i doubt it.

The church needs parish member's and the tithing that comes along with it, period.
The non-for-profits are backed by the ACLU/special interest and their ilk.
The town (politician's) and Pius realty receive money for providing section 8 housing. The more the better.
I am convinced that all three operate with one another for their own selfish reasons... while we suffer.

I grew up and still live within 10 miles of HS, but do go through the area quite often. Every street corner, no matter what time of day, has illegals drinking and just looking for trouble. Suffolk County Cops should also be on every corner walking a beat there, moving everyone along. Instead of my Town of Huntington property taxes being used to protect citizens in that area, it goes to under-educated, lazy teachers who stand behind their union scum. Nice waste of money, New York!
