Let me get this straight - you've got the year round "crazies" and other apologists berating DA Spota, who they claim covers up corruption and other misdeeds of the SCPD, that he is "picking on" the little towns(Southampton, OB, etc.). Having been a 50+ yr resident of Fire Island I today learn that Mayor Loeffler was a former high ranking SCPD detective. To the apologists - subsribing to your "theories" of SCPD/Suffolk DA corruption should we then make the presumptive leap in judgement that Mayor Loeffler took what he learned while on the SCPD and then instituted the same set of crooked rules in OB, or more likely he just perptuated the practices instituted by his "thug" father who ran the OBPD like Hitlers Gestapo. As an addendum to Crooked OB Town official's amazement at the 90K salary - that's the tip of the iceberg - many village employees in OB and the other Inc. Village on the Island also receive tax free housing, free heating oil, electricity, etc. all under the guise that they are 24 hr essential personel. Plus -- I'm sure if other sociopathic, corrupt cops see that you could get $90K a year + benefits and be allowed to beat people within an inch of their life with no risk of being held accountable that the Village of OB would be inundated with job applications.

And ontother thing.
Supposedly he is not allowed to carry a gun/.
Noone thinks this thug doesnt have a Suffolk County Issued Pistol Permit ?
Does any reader have the means to check with the county ?
I would be horrified that this thug is walking around with a gun under his personal carry. Cuz if I remember correctly , you get charged , you lose your Pistol Permit.
Has the bar owners Liquor lic. been reviewed ?
Geeez, people all over the world are reading this .
I am embarrased for the way this Mayor is dealing with this situation

It is against the law to serve alcohol to an intoxicated person. It is a criminal offense punishable by fine and/or imprisonment.

There is no civil recourse because the law only allows liability cases if the intoxicated person hurts someone else, not themselves, and the bar can get sued.

NYS ABC allows the following enforcement:

"Most of the violations of the ABC Law are crimes for which violators may be arrested. Therefore, local police agencies play an important role with the Authority in enforcing the law. This shared responsibility occurs most often at the retail or consumer level of activity where most violations occur.

Although the Authority has no criminal jurisdiction, the police refer thousands of violations to the Authority for administrative prosecution. Complaints of violations are not only received by the SLA from police, but are also received from numerous other sources, including governmental agencies, citizens' representatives, community groups and individual complainants."
