That would be 'guinea' and we don't hang people in this country. You sound and write like you're 12. He will (as you would want to) go through the court process and he will go to jail. Public hangings (from whatever body part) are for others-not us.

A derogatory term for a person of Italian descent. I was just spelling it correctly for ARB-it's nasty-but not naughty-C'mon Newsday.

Never read so much BS. The guy was on drugs, with multiple convictions and a 14 year old is dead. How complicated is this? Get this dirt bag off the road FOREVER. My thoughts are with the family and hope she rests in peace!

Sorry Pissed - but it was a Saturn Sedan "Car", not the SUV. 4 young girls could easily fit in the back of this car...and one in the front seat. I don't think that changes anything. If this SOB wasn't drugged up, driving without a license, these girls would have enjoyed their movie and made it home safely.
My condolences to everyone involved, except the SOB. I hope he rots in hell.
Are there seat belts for four people in the back seat?

Only 7 convictions. Waiting to hear if he had insurance. Cops you are doing a great job. DA and judges go f-yourselves. You lost another person!
Ditto, but you are forgetting that our legal system, at least here in NY, puts the 'rights' of the miscreants above those of the tax-paying citizens. Lots of lawyers sucked up lots of tax money acting in defense of this pee-oh-ess and his ilk, and this murderous traffic incident will only enrich more of them.

No, Mario. Not everyone goes by the letter of the law. Have you ever gone 56 MPH on the LIE?

<quoted text>Suffolk police said Stephen Catalano, 37, was on drugs when he crashed into a 1997 Saturn sedan Tuesday after apparently running a red light on County Road 101 in Medford at 12:18 p.m. Four young girls were seated in the Saturn's backseats.
Thanks for making me take a better look at this. A small Saturn car does not have seating or seatbelts for four in the back seat. As well as from the dipshit that hit them, the driver of the Saturn is partially responsible for the girlÂ’s death. I hope the families sue both of them. One for being a dipshit and the other for negligence.

what is with Newsday? and i quote: "The crash injured 10, including the driver of the Saturn, the four other girls and Catalano's two passengers."

10?

The injured were: 1 driver + 5 girls + 1 other driver + 2 passengers = 10??? W T F

What should really happen is that he should have his hands chopped off so he can never drive a car again.

I know the liberals would call this measure too extreme but not if their kid was the next one dead.

But there are only THREE seat belts in the back seat!! That driver should take some responsibility, but I'm sure she's suffering too.

There are a few articles on this accident. Another one mentions the other car that the dipshit hit.
Good job Newsday for keeping all the info in one place.

There were six people injured according to the original story the driver and her four passengers and the guy that was under the influence of drugs. Two people in the front and three in the back equals five.

It's time to make driving without a license a felony and arrest anyone who doesn't have one ! Four girls were killed yesterday by an Illegal Alien women in mn. yesterday and had already been issued a TICKET for no license in 06. If they arrest you they can see your history and either jail you for repeated offenses or deport you . Not let you go to kill someone in the future . There was no reason for this .
