Another Hasidic man gunned down in the prime of life. Im sure glad Newsday identified the man from Roosevelt as a man not by his ethnicity.

Wow, comments enabled! I'm in shock, I can't even come up with a racist remark! Although we do know he wasn't wh ite, else his name, address, picture, phone number, and email address would have been in the story. Also all the same info for his 3 nearest living relatives.

And the cops are going to spend all that money (wait,Our Money") to put in microphones so they can respond to the shots quicker. I ask WHY????
Someone will find the mutt sooner or later. And he will be just as dead!!

After having the gang situation improve in recent years, it is once again getting worse.. why? Ask Kathleen Rice. She sees it more fit to use all our police resources on fighting underage drinking in rich neighborhoods instead.

I left Freeport in 1981, at age 22, to make that comment then would be appropriate, Merrick is not what it used to be 27 years ago, but neither was Roosevelt. That's why I now live in the quiet suburb of Blythewood, 20 minutes outside of Columbia SC.

Before all of you people start to make your "racist comments" and any other stereotypes. This was my little cousin on the path to a better life and a new beginning for himself. Yes, a young BLACK MAN was trying to make a difference. So before you start in on your arrogant comments think about the family, and the shit that you don't know about my little cousin. Making these kind of statements and judgements about people is why we, as Americans can't get passed the past and make a better future for not only ourselves, but for the youth of America. We, as the role models for these kids need to look into ourselves and make a change before we can have any affect on the youth and our future. To the family of this young KILLER I feel for you and hope that this is also an eye awakeinig experience for you to make the change that you need to, to protect and prevent the next in your family that may make the wrong decision to make the right one. what ever happened to an old fashioned ass whipping on the streets. Punks hold guns if you can't fight with your fist, you shouldn't fight at all.

Why would you make a comment like this? you can't think of anything "racist to say"? why would you want to say something racist? Does your vocabulary not expand passed arrogance? Imagine this was someone in your family? heartless, thoughtless, and hurtful comments such as the one you made is the reason why our future and the future of the younger generation will never be able to move on. I have no comment on your race, or gender just the arrogance and stupidity of your statement. It was very hurtful I came to this site to get information on what happened and to come acrossed comments like yours was very disturbing. Listen to the quote "Think before you speak"

How on earth did this arrogant fool end up with a given name "Lord"? Lord of the flies, or perhaps someone read a Harry Potter book to him...
Sounds like no loss.

Long rambling rant, if you had a point, I missed it. Only good things out of Roosevelt were Howard Stern and Eddie Murphy.

Too bad for you, you missed my point - newspeakday's bizarre political correct editorial is what irks me. White perps get a topix link and photo; black perps get "Police are looking for a man" as an all-points-bulletin. Call back when the prison population proportions reflect the racial makeup of the population at large.
