40+ cars? Not a hate crime? Is Suffolk padding their numbers or just high on this one???

Don't consider them Italian. They're not proud of cultural accomplishments nor have pride in themselves. They're mutts.

So no 2 week front page coverage then? Who determines what is a hate crime and what isn't?

Dormer works for Levy. Levy says there is no hate crime in Suffolk. Thus, Dormer is not permitted to categorize a hate crime for what it is.

I don't agree with what they did but to say that you're ashamed to call them italian b/c they wrote some stupid things on cars is hypocritical since many of us Italians watched The Sopranos and Goodfellas and all of those movies and shows that paint italians in a negative light. So if you're one of those people who watch those shows then you have no right to say anything about what being Italian means, b/c you obviously don't know.

It's definitely a crime to vandalize cars, it's just not a hate crime. They didn't target specific people and write hateful things on their cars. They just randomly did a really stupid thing. That's not a crime. They'll all get community service and probation, especially since they're all first timers.

They should have to repaint all of the cars they messed with, not just get a slap on the wrist by our justice (ha, ha) system.

Please everyone down here knows that Dormer is the lap dog of Kate Browning. She says there's no prostitution problem down here, so there isn't - it's just a figment of our imagination, along with the drug dealers, robberies etc....don't you know, we live in paradise with no crime at all thanks to Kate Browning and Richard Dormer.

My comment is a question or two - to Mr. Dormer-
What do you mean "Hateful but not hate crimes"? What do you mean for "FUN" ?
What do you mean saying they were not aimed at a group or individual? What was not threatening about KILL OBAMA?
1) He is an individual !! OF PRETTY MAJOR IMPORTANCE!!(Hence the reason the Secret Service was involved)!
2)KILL is a THREAT to this particular individual !!!
Next - I'd like to know WHY the Secret Service is only monitoring this investigation?
It should be theres , if Suffolk County doesn't care enough-- turn it over to them!!!!!!!!!!
Step up Secret Service !!!!
There is nothing FUN about this act of RACIAL- HATRED AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!
Thank You,
Tricia

They are not goood kids and it is people like you who excuse criminal behavior that kids think it is alrght to destroy property and upset people. They are nothing more than common criminals.
