Well, if that is how you feel, based on the statistics, there are going to be a lot more young BLACK men killed for committing crimes and threatening people than white kids.
This man doesn't deserve the venom and hate thrown his way after being in this terrible accident. The only racists are those that would wish harm and pain on anther and his family. Truly disturbing to read.

I live in Stony Brook, on my way to a Christmas dinner I saw Dano Jr's car going to what we assumed was Stony Brook Hosptial to see this young man. Taking time out of their Christmas to see a friend that is very sick and the future uncertain, I felt very bad. Until I saw the cars that were following the mustang fly around the corner and take off down Nicholls Road. One life has been ruined by bad driving, this "Black Out" driving needs to be stopped, or at least kept to an area out off the public roads. I really feel for Dano's family. I lived near them and passed his father every day in his excursion. It's such a hard thing to loose a child and the kids all seemed so close to loose another is horrible, especially after everything that has happened. I felt bad for Mr. White at first, but after reading he didn't call the police, or an ambulance and the children ( yes, they were and I don't care what anyone says) had to bring their friend to Mather Hospital in the back of the car, the first call he made was to his LAWYER. No more respect for Mr. White. The jury had the right verdict. I sincerely hope that Nick has a full recovery. No parent should have to go through what his parents are at this time, or any time. If you have had too much to drink, call a cab! Another family ruined by a stupid decision

The word is "lose" not "loose" and no, it was not a typo, you typed it incorrectly twice in the same damned sentence!

Safety concerns? Haha...that's funny. Urbanski didn't seem to be too concerened about safety when he got in his car and drove while he was drunk.

As a fellow rider who recently had a bad accident (because of some other idiot on the road), I can't say how badly I feel for Nick and his family. This kid was out doing something that he loved (and unless you ride, you cannot even begin to criticize those who ride because you just don't understand it)...there are too many idiots on the road putting on their makeup, talking on their cellphones, drinking...you name it. Yes, some bikers drive inappropriately too, but the bottom line is that whether you are riding a motorcycle or not, being on the road has become increasingly dangerous because everyone ignores the fact that we all must share the road. Nobody has any consideration for anyone else anymore.

To Nick's family--I am so sorry.

I believe they should never have connected Nick to Dano in this story. Since this connection was made people are showing no sympathy for Nick and his family. The people are enraged by the verdict in the Dano case and there anger is being transfered to Nick and his family!!! This was an accident and my prayers go out to Nick and his family. His associations have nothing to do with this unfortunate situation.

The folks at Newsday that allow this debauchery to continue on public forums should be ashamed of themselves.

The lowlives that post here want nothing more than to hurt people who are down and out. Funny thing is, they've probably never had a hair on their head harmed. If that happened, they'd be sympathetic rather than hopelessly desensitized. Must have been the latest smash hit on primetime tv that taught them everything they know.

What does Karma have to do with this? Nick wasn't even there that night. Don't you people realize that you spout more racism than anyone else involved in any of these stories? Get a fucking grip already.

Your ignorance never ceases to amaze me. This place is full of idiots. Honestly, most of the people that write here do not have the mental capacity to intelligently respond to a situation. PLEASE form some sort of coherent message.

Ladies and gentlemen, we are floating in space.

Hang in there Nick, you're one tough kid.

Newsday seems desperate to defame the dead and excuse the murderer. They even somehow used the death of a motorist as a vehicle to defame Dano.

The White verdict must have been a very unpopular verdict in that newsroom. All that propaganda for nothing. Newsday pumped out 2 articles a day to destroy the reputation of the dead and his family. Look at this forum, the articles are everywhere and each and every article is about racism. Have to give them credit for being relentless. If I had an agenda I would like a relentless propaganda machine like Newsday to pump out my story day after day after day.

Well said.

Thanks to corrupt tabloids like Newsday and the New York Post, national opinion is against this verdict. People believe what they read, so why should they listen to me? I mean, I was there AND used to be friends with Aaron..but what does that have to do with anything.

If I didn't know any better, I'd be against the verdict too. Then again, I'm smart enough to understand that news is a business, and businesses must SELL to stay afloat. Racism sells papers.

Someone should ask them why they don't print what we tell them in interviews. The truth is boring, baby. People want the drama they expect from a good screenplay to be cast upon real people in society.

Everyone has the right to exercise freedom of speech, but this is just plain deformation of character.

I find it rather ironic. Cicciaro and pals were drunk and used very poor judgment in showing up at someone's house as a mob. Unfortunately, death resulted. Nick Manzo was hit by a drunk driver and almost lost his life. Again, very poor judgment by the driver that hit Nick. I hope there are many people learning a lesson from both these tragedies. Alcohol is not something to play with....one of the side effects is poor judgment. I pray for all involved, the Whites, the Cicciaros, the Manzos and the Urbanskis.
