3 years ago I was working my town job when I stumbled upon a firearm. At brentwood cc.upon returning the pistol I was met by a detective pollino of the 3rd precint.he took me and my irish boss into an interrogation room where I was grilled suspiciously 4an hour.this is nothing compared to what blacks and latinos go through however it is still a form of discrimination.perhaps detective pollino gave me a hard time because I allegedly beat up a cop when I was 15 yrs old,,or he didn't like the scar i wear proudly on my face or that I have an impaired on my record.whatever it was instead of gettinv my face in suffolk county news as a pillar to the communiy I was interrogated and useless by suffolk county's finest who with all do respect should maybe show me and all black irish a little more god Damn respect.the town of islip sign man all day@!!
