Wow. This is great. First a couple skating rinks and now plenty of basketballs for the burr heads. I hope the people of Huntington who are doing without to pay those exorbitant tax increases every year appreciate the efforts of their elected representatives. It must be hard to spend money on these kinds of things and keep a straight face in public. This is why I say........Revolution is the only solution.

3 shootings and a couple of murders in the last 3 days in Huntington.

Did they budget oney for rifle and pistol clubs so the childrn of Huntingtonm can defend themselves against the onslaught of the Mexican drug dealing cartel MS-13 members that have taken over Huntington?

Suggestion: If you live on Long Island "GET OUT!"

As sooon as possible.

Almost missed the corresponding stroy on the news board as toi the "youth" activities in Huntington.

"Teen shot in Huntington Station fightBILL MASON
February 21, 2009
A teenager was shot in the shoulder during a fight in Huntington Station Friday, Suffolk police said.

Det. Sgt. Bruce Markgraf said the incident began about 1:40 p.m. near New York Avenue and East Ninth Street, when a teen got into an argument with another young man in a group at Michael's Deli. The teen went across the street and got several friends, including shooting victim Philip Perez, 19, and a fight broke out between the two groups, police said.

"At some point, Philip Perez is shot with a 9-millimeter [handgun], and he runs from the scene," Markgraf said. Perez ran to a friend's home about a block away, police said, and someone there called 911. He is listed in stable condition at Huntington Hospital. Second Squad detectives are investigating. No one has been arrested."

The "Crime Wave" that always accompanmies the 2nd and 3rd generation of massive immigration has begun.

But we told you that 3 years ago.

Long Island's "Crime Wave" has it's foundation in Mexican heroin!

The Long Island "Heroin Epidemic" is already sweeping through our schools unabated with your children the targets and that means it is over!

5% of society uses 99% of the services and tax dollars. You do the math. Easy solution.

Two plus million for children at risk is a great idea if it were being spent on the children victims of this criminal invasion of Huntington.

STOP THE TOLERANCE OF ACCEPTING POOR BEHAVIOR AND ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES!
