O'Hara, 24, of Levittown is accused of spray painting and using a marker to ink messages such as "RWK," "FREE GANK," "POLAR" and "HAZARD" on houses, businesses and traffic signs during a 2 1/2 month spree earlier this year.

i do not believe the police are out to get people. perota and incadella, yes. mccarthy, yes. these are officers who disgrace the name of the police. did u know perota was the one who told me sean had aids? i do not find it funny to spread vicious lies about people. why do u think they no longer patrol? call and ask the 8th. they havent been arrested, i never said that, suspended and let go. do u wanna know the proof they have? a grainy video of someone's back, and a tip line where people have called saying they think it's sean. it's like convicting someone of a murder with no body. also some kid, goes by the tag "sole4" got arrested for graffiti in the act, got scared and ratted on people. his mommy happens to work for the police department. sean was not caught in the act nor did he confess. i know u wish it was but it wasnt sean. and ur right his myspace is a disgrace,but u cant get rid of it without a password and email. life is too short to get all worked about neighborhood graffiti, yeah i get its annoying to you but relax.

Sounds like they have nothing on Shawn. He should be out soon. Maybe we will start seeing "Free O'Hara RWK' soon around the neighborhood. Do you own anything of value???? Because if you did you would back of your statement of "life is too short to get all worked up about neighborhood graffiti". Do you know how much a white vinyl fence is? The value of your home when the area is covered in graffiti? I have one other thing regarding your comments. You stated when referring to the police " you have no idea what they have done to them" how Shawn and his friends have had problems with these officers before. But it is not Shawn and his friends writing graffiti about these officers all over this town?? I hope Shawn gets a fair trial and you and his family are there to support him. I also hope if he is convicted Shawn, Sole and Gank have to clean this whole area. You should help since you knew so much all this time.

I'm from Levittown an i am in no way defending what Shawn did. but to say that something like this should be expected from someone from levittown is probably one of the most ignorant statement you could make. does the name William Tracy ring a bell he's from your home town he just got arrested,for.....thats right killing his step mom. Now let me ask you something would you want me to type cast you as a murder an trash cause someone that lives in your town was arrested a few days ago on murder charges. I don't think so. trashy people are everywhere your town an mine. Do me a favor before you start throwing around stupid comments like Wh!te Trash Seriously, what would you expect from Levittown,check your local news an see what trash you have in your own backyard.
It's hilarious when people get so defensive when someone insults their town. Simmer down, man - life's too short.

do u have any idea what the police have done to them? perota and incadella actually. perota is currently suspended for "allegedly" having sex with underage girls. and incadella has also been let go. did u know that? did u know perota has arrested sean for driving with a suspended license, cuffed him, then mased him and charged him with resisting arrest? the stories i have heard are more upsetting than this alleged graffiti. sean has changed his life since december. hes doing really well actually, i know him personally. ur going on all heresay, the police like to lie because they are pathetic and cant find the real person behind this. and "gank" is in jail for graffiti, part of it at least. and he was caught in the act, sean was not. was ur house tagged?
Awww, poor baby was arrested for driving with a suspended license? Wow, the cops are REALLY picking on him, huh?

You're a tool and your friend is a punk dirtbag.

So, if I destroy your property, then go join the military, I'm off the hook? I don't think so. Homey don't play that.

Based on everything I've read here, and by the myspace page, it seems that you all are missing something very obvious and you should be ashamed of yourselves for lashing out at this young "man". It doesn't seem fair to be so angry at someone who is obviously severely mentally retarded. Shame on you all.

Real nice. These comments are full of Judge, Jury, and Executioner, all in one.

Innocent till proven guilty? Not on LI. Here, it's 'convicted in the media' then 'guilty till proven innocent.' The civil suit oughta be against all the slanderers here who can't wait for the decision of a court.

Constitutional rights? What constitution.

Sean is a good guy. You don't know how he was raised and you don't know his family. The 8th precent is the worst in the county.

Sean is not a good guy. He has been a problem in this area for some time. My husband and I have lived in the area for over 30 years. I'm not sure how Felicia and the family can show their faces. The people of this community have had enough of this graffiti. It is very sad and his myspace page is very disturbing to look at.

Has he been a problem for u? Don't judge his family. I'm sure not everyone in your family is a prize. U don't like his myspace? Don't look at it! It's over 3 years old and he can't delete it. U should also keep his familys

6 Saddler will get pay back. In reading your comments it shows that these "men" have no respect for our town or the police. Maybe you should give names. If and when it starts again, 6 Saddler will get it back until the other names come out. I'm not paying $8,400 a year in taxes to look at this crap anymore.

Ur mature. U don't like it? Move! Your all judging but how do u know it was him? Where is your proof? Did you see him do it? Did the police catch him in the act? Look at all the different tags and handwritings and colors it's clearly 30 different people why are u all blaming someone the police are claiming did this. There is no solid evidence where is innocent until proven guilty. I'm sry your fence was tagged but it wasn't sean. U should be upset the real person is still out there just tagging a different town, didn't ur mom ever teach u 2 wrongs don't make a right?

Now children I am sure he is a very nice boy, just like that manson boy. Its so nice to hear your total dis-respect for any form of law and order. You really live up to the White Trash code of ethics!!! Now its time to grow up and see the real world. Maybe even come out of your coma. If he did it-LOCK HIS ASS UP!!!!

PS.THANK YOU PEROTTA!!!!
