the suspect in this shooting is definitely not white! we know that because if he was, newsday would have printed that fact. newsday's policy of not indentifying minority crime suspects actually causes racism!

Is it a firehouse or a catering hall? This is typical of the rot that plagues Long Island fire services.

Why in the world would newsday give all of the perp's description with the exception of his skin color? Who in the hell is running this second rate newspaper? What a joke newsday is - a bunch of scared liberals who placate to criminals.

Nothing like a Volly Ghetto party. REMEMBER FDNY went to 9/11 and the same day the Vollys went to 7/11 on a beer run.

The difference in property taxes between NYC and Long Island on average is probably $6,000 to $7,000. Dumba$$.

Cowards! Apologists. Why no description of this "man". If history is any indication, it is because this was a minority man of some type. Newsday thinks they can end racism by obscuring the identities of the trash that do things like this. The only thing history tells us is that if he was white; it would have been in the article.
