YOU ARE RIGHT, TAX PAYERS ARE PAYING TO ASSIST WITH THIS VICTIMS BURIAL. I AM GLAD FOR THE PROGRAM. HOWEVER, THE LOW LIFE THAT MURDERED HIM MOST LIKE IS NOT A TAX PAYER. iT REALLY HURTS THAT OUR YOUNG BROTHERS ARE KILLING EACHOTHER. THEY SHOULD USE THIS ENERGY TO GET AND EDUCATION. I AM A WITNESS WHAT YOU'VE DONE IN THE DARK COMES TO LIGHT. I PRAY FOR THIS YOUNG MAN SOUL AND THE SOULS OF THE WITNESSES THAT WON'T COME FORWARD. YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE YOUR NAME JUST CALL THE TIP LINE FROM A PAY PHONE OR WRITE A NOTE AND MAIL IT TO THE POLICE. I LOVE ANDRE. I AM SURE HE WAS NOT AN ANGEL BUT I KNOW HE WASN'T A MURDERER. I AM PRAYING THAT I MAY BE ABLE TO FORGIVE. I KNOW I CAN'T FORGET. WE HAVE HIS SON TO HUG AND LOVE AND REMIND US OF HOW MUCH HE SO LOVE HIS SON. ALL THE RACIST, GOD KNOWS WHATS IN YOUR HEART.

Cute, but stupid.

How about you address the point that you are a dumba** who can't figure out how to tip off the police anonymously. Maybe you will get it when one of your friends or family is the victim of some crime that could have been prevented by someone dropping a dime.

The way Glen Cove is going it won't be long.

But please, threaten me again with your big internet muscles, maybe that will scare me into not pointing out your failure as a human being. The only thing that will help the communties that are under the terror of these violent criminals are themselves, and until they step up, and get past the small minded dolts like yourself, it won't happen.

A couple of posters from the black community here get it, because they have to witness it first hand. Funny how you can't seem to get it through your thick skull.

Everybody should understand that the black race race is prone to violence and crime. And it's not the white man's fault.

The American taxpayer has fired serveral trillions of dollars into the black race since LBJ's "Great Society" took off.

We get what we pay for.

and i guess that white people tell on each other every day huh? is this how the mob italian, russians, jewish, albanians, and all others survive and prosper? they tell on one another! is this how the government prospers also. i mean they tell on one another. so what if their famililes will be in danger. so what if their kids get killed. they tell tell tell. then im wondering why no one told about oh lets say. enron, bears sterns, the clintons, etc etc. why dont you people worry about your own pitful racist bigot lives. danny ciccario told too didnt he. is that why hes now 6 ft under. how many of you have told. on your family and or friends. with the way the law works today. im beginning to believe street justice is the best justice there is! in jail the criminals have more rights then any one of us. and in jail is the best alibi. when u can make a call to have someone taken out for you being there in the first place. isnt that a lesson learned from the mafia, plus the rich and powerful give me a break! THERE IS NOT ONE OF YOU THAT WOULD OPEN YOUR MOUTH TO SAY ANYTHING EITHER. SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU WOULD BE AS WORRIED ABOUT YOU OWN ASS. AS THESE PEOPLE ARE.please not one of you would want to be known as a snitch either. in the ghetto or in your so called upscale neighborhoods. and im sick of you people talking about send them home or back where they came from. that line is as tired as your simple minded ass. we wouldnt have to go back anywhere if your ancestors had of stayed their asses in the lily white lands and home and left the african people alone in africa or whereever they snatched and chained them up from to bring them here to be slaves. so if you want your lily white land back i suggest you all pool your money together and go find a island some dayum where because none of you are americans either your immigrants like the rest of the world unless your a animal. which i believe most of you are. remember the first men were cave men and their skin is white. once you shave off the hair, just like a gorilla you shave it and the skin is pink there isnt one pink black person in this world. well accept the ones who got their lightskin from their ancestors who were raped and forced to bring biracial , mulatto etc kids into this world. so stop the bs and stick to the story which is a man is dead. and is there any wonder no one wants to help the police. if there is. then i suggest your parents request a refund for the education your wasted because your still ignorant all these years later

Maybe you will get it when you rat someone out and they come for you or your family.

Any by the way, I never said people shouldn't report it. You're just too stupid to see what I was conveying.

This just seems completely rediculous to me because a couple of months ago another kid, Abkeen Cochran, was shot and killed not too far from where this incident occurred. In that case the police found a suspect in no time (even without any witnesses). Now, they have multiple witnesses and none of them are willing to come forth? I think that is a bunch of BS. All of the police need to get off of their butts and do some real police work. They need to find the murder put him behind bars and never let him out. Once the community (civil individuals and criminals both) see the results of what can be done maybe the community can start to change. I grew up across the street from where this occurred and the same crap has been going on in Hempstead for years. Something has to change, NOW!!!! And, without the public seeing any results for the crimes committed in the neighborhood this is going to continue forever.

You are a moron! The police rely on witnesses in most cases. How many times does a cop actually witness a crime?? Not too many. There are at least 50 people that saw this but they are all probably wanted by the police or have extensive criminal backgrounds. SAVAGES!!! I hope they all die!

Thanks for the compliment!!!! However, I never said that the officers witnessed the crime. But, what about the homeowner, where is he or she? Why not hold the witnesses or questioning whoever was present to gather some clarification on what occurred? That is real police work!!!
I am from Hempstead and I know for sure that the police roam the streets picking up people and just questioning them regarding the happenings and word on the street. This is what I am referring to. Arresst someone and sentence them to a long period time in prison instead of just sitting around waiting for someone to say something. That's why there are so many unsolved murders in this area. JUST DO SOMETHING!!!!

i am a black man and i must say that i am disgusted with the comments that i just read from you people. but as much as i hate to say it, the sad fact is that you are right about the the witnesses. i can't belive that we as a people are still on this kick about covering up for someone who killed another person. to change the minds of the people writing these comments we have to be able to stand up and make a change, and show that we are not ignorant and scared to do the right thing. we need to stand up and show them that we are better then this. i am shocked and appauled that no one has come forward with any information. this is why the call us what they do. come on and have a bit of respect for yourself and do the right thing
I agree with you. We have to change the attitudes of ourselves, before we change others. This story is crazy how can 40-50 people see some one murder and not say anything. I could not sleep at night.

God helps those who help themselves.

Until they get the welfare/handout/the government will do everything for me mentality out of their minds they will be the ones to suffer the most.

Why isn't Sharpton giving a speech in Hempstead pleading with these 50 people to come forward?

I think the reason that people are not coming forward as sad as it may seem, is because the police interrogate witnesses like they are the damn suspect and people just dont want to get involved with the constant phone calls after you gave anonymous information. You are not as ANONYMOUS as they try to make it seem at 1st. They call your family members and anyone you know to try to get infomation just from a tip YOU gave. I can't blame them in a way. Let the detectives, detect. Sorry but it's the truth!

If you want answer to what happen then hold the owner or person on the lease of the house responsible. It was their party and they should know who they invited to it. I bet than you will get some people talking.
