Hold on a minute - before shedding a tear for the terminated employees - think about how many lives *they* destroyed by "working hard" to put home buyers/borrowers into absurd loans that they had very little chance of repaying - or the much greater number of people directly affected by probably the most asinine housing bubble of all time (take a look at the Bureau of labor statistics site to get a feel for the collapse/stagnation of the US labor markets since 2001 - how can you have housing growth when labor markets are dead/stagnant?).
The employees didn't care who their company was screwing so long as *they* got paid - so let's reconsider the full complement of people who should "burn in hell"
What you need to understand, people need to be responsible for their own actions. It is as simple as if you cannot afford a mortgage, don't take one out. I was one of "those" people that worked there. It was a horrible thing that had happened to us. The way things were handled were horrible also. The last week you would go in everyday and you would wonder if the doors were going to be open. No one would tell you anything that was going on. I also happened to be 9 months pregnant and due any day when they closed. We did not get anything. They cut our insurance off that day and were like have a nice life. We were not paid for our vacation days and did not receive a bonus or package. We were lucky to get our last pay checks. I was lucky enough to be able to find a job, but almost everyone else that i had spoken to is still unemployeed. All of those people have family, bills, and morgages of their own. It just really burns me that you only blame the mortgage industry. I personally would never take an adjustable rate mortgage and do not really understand why anyone would.

America Home Mort. sold us a bill of goods that was not good for anyone involved and guess what? They knew it when they were doing it. Do I feel sorry. NO NO NO.

If the readers are interested I would like to tell you that in my drawer of people I hate, Joe is at the bottom of the list. All Joe did was to go for a laugh ride with the SCPD and DA when they gave him lies to tell.

the only question that remains to be seen is if Joe had to lie to get himself out of a very serious crime - murder. A crime he might have went elsewhere to report REAL SUFFOLK POLICE CRIMINALS, or did he do it just for laughs?

I think Joe had the goods on some corrupt cops and those cops are pals of DA Tom Spota. They simply found another cop to replace for the corrupt ones. Now Joe could go home without starting one of the biggest scandals in Suffolk county history. that is my take on it.

please share those stories. I would appreciate any information to get a very clear picture of him and how he can be attacked by law enforcement.

If you see Joe, please tell him that all he has to do is go to the FBI, get immunity for his perjury at trial, and give up the cops and the DA that made him lie. It is a good deal, and it will get me off his back for once in for all. I don't want him. I could care less about him. One way or another someone he screwed will catch up with him and his reign of terror will end.
