This article wouldn't really be worthy of discussing if it wasn't for this duncery:

"Watson said medical examiners believe the death appears to have been caused by "exposure from the cold" but an autopsy has not been completed."

OK....alright...maybe...

"William Drew, 60, who says he knew Bryant for many years, said Bryant had been shoveling snow out of New Cassel resident's driveways and sidewalks on Sunday for money."

Oh. So a homeless guy got himself a rare windfall...

"It was unclear how long Bryant had been homeless or what drove him to the streets. A database of New York State showed Bryant had multiple criminal convictions, mostly on drug possession charges."

AHhhhhhhhh, now this little Polaroid has developed itself. We've got a homeless guy, 56 years of age, who has a drug problem to the point that he is homeless, doing heavy manual labor all day, at the end of which he realizes he has amassed a decent chunk of change...I wonder what he decided to spend the money on and what caused him to end up face down in a pile of "snow".

Way to piece together the whole picture, morons.

Just consider this Newsday propaganda piece another 'feel good' story. Newsday has never known either an illegal, homeless or 'alternative lifestyle' subject it couldn't romanticize.

It's an indictment against society for failing to protect this man. All politicians and police officials should be forced to live outside as punishment for this gross neglect.

We better wake up and realize society fails us all when innocents are murdered. I hold doughnut consumers responsible. They should pay compensations out of their plush accounts to this man's family as punishment. This is war people. Get ready.

Well-known? Never heard of him before today.

I knew of him. He was a noted professional among his colleagues. He fought wars of ignorance to make this a better world & he died a hero.

His criminal record came from a corrupt system where Nassau cops profile African Americans and label all as evil. Nobody ever proved he used drugs. That's a rumor the racists use to get sexually excited over. I feel like busting all of you's over your heads for displaying such ignorance involving an American symbol of justice. Just like the bald eagle, he lived and died for democracy. He has earned a spot in Arlington.

I believe that mandate is on page 749 of the new health care bill, cant let them become eligible for medicare after cutting it by 500,000,000,000.

I think that's on page 2576 of the health care bill... right after the 'bend over and take it like a man' clause.

I agree.
As a fellow member of the USSUOA (United Snow Shovelers Union Of America) he was DEFINATELY a noted professional, of the highest caliburrrrr!!!!

....and to the person who suggested he should have lived in Hawaii, currently the USSUOA has no members there. For obvious reasons.

Good day!!!!

Hello you incencitive fuck I'm TIMOTHY BRYANTS nephew...the homeless guy your refering to. I think this article is completly irresponsible on your part because regardless of the mans problems he was still someones uncle, brother, and father. I'm sure you have members in your family that aren't completly squeaky clean. Remember that everyone has a story,trials and tribulations in there life. Who are you to judge anyone.

It is utterly dispicable for a person who clearly has family to be homeless unless they are strung out on dope or some kind of other criminal.

Why didn't his family offer him a place to stay?

My guess is he was NOT busy working on a "Hooked on Phonics" lesson on his computer.
