If I ever am in Shirley, I hope someone beats me to death with a blunt object too. What a trashy town.

Who Cares!!!

The other should have died too.

Save the tax dollars.

Sounds to me like just a few more productive citizens of society.

There once was a man named Kofi Witt ,
Who smashed his friend Stephen Hazzard's head, probably with a brick.
The 911 call came in very early,
But hey, they always do in beautiful Shirley!
Upon searching the property, the police looked in the shed,
And low and behold, there was Stephen, very, very, dead.
Now both these characters have a rap sheets that started very early,
Which got them both ready for that big move to Shirley!
PS: No comments on my poetry!
Not bad, not bad.

Mastic Shirley is a slum. Thats something we can all agree on. Mandatory sterilization is a good start for this town. Maybe quarantine the whole Mastic Shirley area. These are real solutions to real problems people
Like Medford is any better

It's amazing how many people consider where they live is free from anything.
Of course nothing happens anywhere else on Long Island???? Only in this area??????
There are no drug addicts anywhere else on Long Island is there?????? Everywhere else on Long Island they don't drink booze????? Or do they??? They only indulge in drinking just milk. Now Isn't that right???

From Sands Point to Montauk Point every town has there bimbos, bimbettes, jerks, morons, icholes, druggies, drunks, murderers, rapist petofiles, drunk drivers and God only knows what else. Just think they you could be living right next to one and you would never know it. Mastic , Shirley is not the only dirt pit on Long Island trust me. They are all over the place on this God foresaken Sand Bar

It's a frameup by the homicide detectives. McCready came out of retirement and whooped a confession out of his worthless-pin brain.

Spota put the body in the shed with his henchmen. Call a fed monitor.

i didn't even know I was cutting myself until the doctor gave me multiple injections to put me on track. What are those voices?

Yes, Anything can happen anywhere. However, there is a MUCH Higher concentration of dirt bags in Mastic/Shirley. I work this entire island, and it is absolutely pathetic in Mastic/Shirley

I love it when someone who commits a crime tries to commit suicide and they are able to save em so they can be prosecuted.

To all that wrote Shirley is white trash not true people are what they are and live everywhere in every town. Your life is what you make it. We are a hard working family trying to make a home for our children. I live not to far from where it happened and my question to Suffolk County Police is WHY if you knew this was a drug house why didn't you do something about it? And to all wondering how would the police know they did. They did know!!
