I was at the courthouse yesterday and saw the family and some big skinhead types who looked like white supremacists threatening and roughing up a reporter who said that he wanted to tell the story of their slain son. But the women were screaming they are all f-ing liars, and dont fall for it Dano. The big skinhead with the ponytail roughed up the reporter pretty bad and then said that "he would go Tommy Lee" on his ass. It makes me wonder if those skinheads were there at the time of the shooting and if they are all violent in that family. Or perhaps Daniel was not only a victim of the scared black man but was also a victim of the violence of his own family and friends who appear to be skinheads. with this said I dont judge a book by it's cover but they were violent at the court too. Go figure.

We should all remember that this is Dano's page and his family reads this. Those who don't know him should not judge him or his friends. The fact of the matter is he was a 17 year old boy with his life ahead of him and that all ended the night a 53 year old man decided to take his life. Dano and his friends may have showed up at John White's home, but he and his son both came out with weapons. Nobody deserves to take the life of anyone else. That's Gods job. The police were only a phone call away. He could have called the police when he knew they were on their way, but he decided to take his life instead. And just because he is a good neighbor and has a good job, he took the life of a 17 year old boy. Remember That!!!!! Dano's family deserves justice.

You are all pathetic. It all boils down to racism. Whites vs. blacks. Whites need to get off their high horse and blacks need to quit their "slavery mentality." That has been abolished. But, I do not feel bad for Danny. He had a smart mouth, was disrespectful - he deserved what he got. If you are going to threaten someone in their own property or on the street - DEAL WITH THE CONSEQUENCES.

If it were a white man that shot a black 17 year old, he would've had the book thrown at him. There was no reason to have a gun present. The kid didn't have one. The father should've just called the cops and let them deal with it.

I just heard about this today and I think its pathetic that according to New York state law you're supposed to cower in your house praying you don't get killed while you wait for the police to show up. These guys told this kid they were going to kill him, they came to his home with the intention of killing him, and finally, THEY TRIED TO KILL HIM. I don't have any kids (yet) but when I do you better believe that I would do the same if put into a situation like this. John White should be walking free and the four punks that lived should be charged with harassment. New York should be ashamed of it's pathetic self defense/gun laws. In Texas this man would have been made citizen of the year.

If two carloads of black young men from Gordon Heights and Bellport rolled up in the up-scale Miller Place neighborhood and a white property owner had looked out the window and saw them and stepped out of his house with a gun and shot one because he was being brazen and trying to take the gun, the white home owner would be called a hero and the remainder of the black young men would be arrested for a series of crimes. The same should've been true for the drunken white young men from Sound Beach and Selden. Just because they're white, DOESN'T MAKE IT RIGHT.

Daniel Cicciaro got what he deserved. If he wasn't drunk and at someone's house in the middle of the night with a gang of his punk friends, he would be alive today! HIS PARENTS ARE PAYING FOR NOT RAISING DANIEL CICCIARO PROPERLY!! HIS PARENTS GOT WHAT THEY DESERVED FOR RAISING A PUNK, A NO-DISCIPLINED AND ALCOHOLIC SON. WHITE KIDS THINK THAT THEY GO WHERE EVER THEY WANT, WHENEVER THEY WANT AND TREAT PEOPLE, ESPECCIALLY BLACK PEOPLE, ANYWAY THEY WANT AND GET AWAY WITH IT. NOT THIS TIME! THEY THOUGHT MR. WHITE WAS A PUNK AND WAS GOING TO CALL THE POLICE. HE SHOULD'VE SHOT EACH AND EVERYONE OF THEM FOR BEING AT HIS HOUSE TRESPASSING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT TRYING TO CALL OUT HIS SON TO HARM HIM.

Mr. White was justified in going outside with a loaded gun. He should've gone out with his shot gun with more fire power to blow each and everyone of them into pieces! NOW LOW-LIFE, ARROGANT WHITE KIDS ARE GOING TO THINK TWICE BEFORE THEY GO TO ANOTHER BLACK FAMILY'S HOUSE STARTING TROUBLE.

Mr. White had asked this bloodthirsty wolfpack to leave his property numerous times. If they listened, the little third-rate punk with a bad haircut would not be dead.

REST IN PEACE, GUIDO.

To 'Rest in Peace' 's comment: a 'peacemaker' does not take 5 friends to beat someone up at their house late at night. i don't care what 'noble peacemaking' he had in mind but you don't do that by bringing a car full of kids to start a confrontation. i'm not taking either side but it certainly was not 'peacemaking' that got this young man killed. Thats why he got convicted of second degree manslaughter and not first degree murder. If you were entirely correct in calling him a peacemaker, it certainl would have been considered first degree murder. a jury has decided the truth and you distort it.
