And don't start me on the racing trucks the "Drill Team" members use, another WASTE of tax payers money!
There was a large brush fire last year near the Deer Park train Station. Te FD kept it from spreading into the Industrial Area. If they use this truck once the cost is justified. Do yoyu remebmber the fire out east years ago ? Dont make comments just because your angry. There are crooks everywhere. Should we take a look at your Tax return ? Have receipts for all those donations your claming ? Please, just because there are a few rotten apples doesnt mean the entire tree is rotten

What is wrong with you? Murder! Get the facts straight. It was public record that this was AN ACCIDENT! 100% ACCIDENT! He was NOT UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ANY SUBSTANCE! You keep saying "pretty boy" - it sounds like a jealousy problem to me. Your quote on suicide attempts is wrong also. Before you start running your mouth on facts that are continuously wrong, maybe you should take a good hard look in the mirror before casting any stones.

Everyone is losing site of the fact that there are more honest volunteers firefighters then corrupt. These firefighters go out there everyday and volunteer their time. They miss meals with families and family events when called to duty. They train and save lives on a daily basis. The problem is that the Fire Commissioner Elections become a popularity contest rather then voting for educated qualified candidates. I would be willing to bet that most Commissioners have no official qualifications other then being a firefighter and that does not make them qualified to manage a business (and the fire district is a business) and tax payers money. So the next time there is an election in your fire district look at your candidates closely.

As for John Carbone, he had everyone BS’d. Likeable guy until you disagree with him then he turns on you and becomes the most vicious person I have ever met. I have personally seen him try to destroy people’s marriages and lives. It will be interesting to see what role all the elected officials that he was “friends’ with play in his criminal defense. They should let him hang……… I really hope he gets what he deserves.

I can see by what you wrote that you certainitly have no skelitons in your closet??? Is that fact you write or just mere bullshit coming out of that hole you call a mouth. You would think a person with that much hate would a least sign his name to a comment like that. Anthony's death was listed as it should have been, A tragic accident. John's blood came back negitive for all substances you tool.Leave Anthony's death alone !!!

For 10 years, Carbone served as treasurer of a fundraising group for the future Nassau County Firefighters Museum. Hey Long Islanders, remember this story the next time a volly rings your bell looking for a handout, errr..... a donation to support your local fire department. When the volly rings the bell, bring your town tax bill to the door with you and point out the various references to fire depatment taxes listed on your bill. Then tell him to "Have a nice day". Carbone gives a bad name to real "brothers" like me! A family member of mine in the contracting business went to a local Nassau County firehouse as part of a walkthrough to view the proposed renovations to their kitchen. This guy is an oldtimer who thinks everything is "on the level". Part of the scope of the job was the replacement of beautiful black onyx which was on a wall in the kitchen. He began to question the reason for the replacement of perfectly good onyx and what he was to do with it upon removal. When he was told to throw it out, he blew a gasket. P.S. He didn't get the contract. This is gonna sting a little. I've watched my local guys operate at about six good jobs in my area over the years. They have lost every housefire they responded to. In one case they positioned a tower ladder in front of the fire bulding and put a guy up in the bucket with guess what?.... a video camera. I videoed this because I knew no one I work with would ever believe it. This job started out as two cents worth of fire on a garage door, which communicated to the car in the driveway. Ten minutes later it was through the roof.... not of the car...of the house.Leave firefighting to fireman.
Sounds like another REALLIE sounding off about the vollies......why dont you man up and help your community and give everyone the benefit of your probably two or three years of experience..... Most FDNY senior members are more mature than to video tape 'vollie' fires and then go in and pick them apart. Until your guys become as perfect as you think......worry about yourself. You work two DAYS A WEEK AND PROBABLY GO OUT THREE OR FOUR TIMES A TOUR....PLEASE - TRY TO COME OUT AND HELP THOSE who live in your community, HELP THE TAXPAYERS...You pay less for top rate fire/rescue service than you do for your library.....also tell your 'reallie' brothers to stop taking jobs training the vollies at their state of the art training facilities. This incident is not indicative of all firefighters. When one of your brothers gets locked up, you dont hear us whining about your brothers, or that they get paid to give lectures to thousnds of vollies in Indianapolic, Dallas, San Diego, Boston, Orlando etc.....You sound like that jerk-off union boss of yours ASSIDY....Remember where just about all of your funeral coalitions are held.....dont be a hypocrite and call us when u need us (remember 911).
This guy will be prosecuted by the DA's office. The North Bellmore Fire District had proper checks and balances in place aqnd caught the crime and is handling it in a proper manner.

Most of you are a bunch of @$$holes. I thank the people who did defend John and his actions though. John Carbone is one of the nicest people I know. Anything you need he will go out of his way for you. He has done tons of great things for the North Bellmore Fire Department, and is always willing to lend you a helping hand. The North Bellmore Fire Commissioners are also a bunch of great, qualified guys.

I do not see why people feel the need to bring up other accidental tragedies this man has suffered through in his life, which in no way shape or form have ANYTHING to do with this isolated incident.

Don't comment on something you only see the biased opinion of from newsday. No one is perfect, look in the mirror before you judge others.

First off...you have no idea what you are talking about, secondly who are you to comment on the entire Carbone family. There will always be a bad seed but that shouldn't spoil the whole bunch. I believe that some members were soldiers and police officers. As for the killing it was deemed accidental, but you would certainly know better, knowing him and his entire family so well.

I’m sure Carbone did do some good things for North Bellmore. But the guy is a vindictive arrogant pr—k who is extremely selfish. I just want to see the legal system handle this. What I don’t understand is why it took the North Bellmore FD almost 3 months to report this to the DA. Were they trying to make this go away?

Anyone associated with fire departments knows what goes on between those walls - and it's not always pretty. So before you start bringing his family into it, you should check out your own.
From your comments I can tell the type of person you are by how you bash someone who is going through a difficult time. We all have issues in one form or another, but you are definitely the type that gets satisfaction out of it. I hope for your family and friends sake they lead a perfect life because you would be the first one to throw them under the bus. Obviously, JC didn't like you, now I know why.

Amazed;

These difficult times you talk about he brought upon himself. He knows right from wrong. I only get satisfaction out of seeing someone who s__T on people get what they deserve. I don’t wish him or his family harm. I just want people to see him for what he is.
