There should be some more investigating in East Hampton as well. Anyone else remember when the high school star basketball and his friends were in involved in the series of mugging and jumpings of Hispanics in the Springs section. It was in the Star and a small little blurb in Newsday. This goes on everywhere, its not just in Patchogue.

This is ridiculous now. Last year I had a rubber skeleton hanging from a rope on a broom stick for Halloween outside my front window. I live on a main street in a very quaint village off of Hempstead Ave, south of the SS parkway. Had that prop for 12 years. Would you know I was asked to take it down cause it offended some of my town folk. IDIOTS!

If that is the case, then I want every thug that tries to give me the "death stare" charged with a hate crime. This is really getting out of control, people.

Well I see it this way, if a mannequin of President Bush is in the noose it is a work of art; but to have a noose without a conservative in the noose is a hate crime.

This is such bull, last year when the town of Hempstead had a noose in the garage someone called and complained about their life being threatened. What the town of Hempstead and Newsday did not tell you is that noose that someone felt threatened by was hanging in the garage for 30 YEARS!!!!
