For those of you that don't know, John Carbone was not a volunteer firefighter - he was an employee of the district. There is a big difference between the two. I have been around the fire department scene my entire life. My fiancee, father, uncle, and friends are all volunteers. Newsday readers and community members need to realize that not all members of the fire departments are corrupt. There are many, many good people that volunteer their free time and leave their families to help complete strangers. Yet, we don't see as many stories in Newsday about them. It is unfortunate that events like this give all members a bad name.

First off...you have no idea what you are talking about, secondly who are you to comment on the entire Carbone family. There will always be a bad seed but that shouldn't spoil the whole bunch. I believe that some members were soldiers and police officers. As for the killing it was deemed accidental, but you would certainly know better, knowing him and his entire family so well.
lets see, oh, his brother was a police officer, does that make him better than civilians, he ia already using his influence to get the charges less, his other brother is screwing his fellow fire fighters wives. nice family

First of all, all you guys are bad mouthing JC are a couple of jerkoffs. We all know who you are, so why hide behind bullshit names and fess up to your tough guy bullshit. I have known John all my life and he is nothing of what you guys are saying. You idiots forget what he did for N.M by geeting new rigs in your houses and spending money that should have been spent years and years ago. To bring up the tragic accident which we lost a good brother is such a heartless, no good thing. That accident was indeed an ACCIDENT and im sure if anthony was alive he would be here standing up for him. To talk about a district car which he drove around for personal business is retarted. If you look all around our districts everybody who is anybody has a district car and abuses it. As stated before, LOOK IN THE MIRROR BEFORE POINTING THE FINGER!!!! This is a great guy who needs support from us instead of bad mouthing. Everybody has a hard time in life and this is his. Anybody who thinks otherwise needs a fucking bat to the side of their head.

P.s- That camera in the bucket of the ladder trucks as stated above, was probably a thermal imaging camera...you fucking jackass. Im sure you knew that being in the f.d though

Nice family? Who are you? Just because his brother is a P.O. doesn't reduce his charge. You have no idea what you are talking about! Everyone knows what he did was wrong, but once again we hear from another martyr. I didn't realize the world was filled with so many.

I have known john all my life. For all you jerkoffs to sit here and call him a murderer is wrong. It was an accident, nothing more nothing less. Unfortunitly we lost a good brother. All you jackasses sit here hiding behind these names not aware that we already know who you are. John is a great guy who fell into hard times like all of us have had or will. You sit here and bad mouth this guy but you dont say anything about him getting new rigs in N.M while he was on the board or how he spent money on things that should have been spent a longtime ago. As stated earlier you guys need to look in the mirror and stop being the lifeless pieces of shit that know abosolutly nothing. For those who have stood up for john, i thank you. For those who will still have something to say after this, you need a bat to the side of your fucking head. Who cares if he was an employee or a firefighter. He still worked with us and should be treated as a brother fireman. For the jerkoff that said he drove in a district car on personal business, wake the fuck up and look around. Look at the districts around us which people that serve no purpose to the fire dept. have unmarkes official tahoes in their driveways. This is a good man who needs help not bullshit. As for the idiot that stated he saw a video camera in the bucket of a ladder truck at a job, im sure it was a thermal imaging camera you fucking idiot. Im sure you knew that being in the f.d though

Did Carbone do wrong? Yes I agree. Lets not get out of hand though.To bash people like some of you are doing seems unfair.I'v lived close to him for a long time and I have to say that he is a great person. I'm not sticking up for him. I just think that if someone does wrong it's not nesc. to bring up other trajedies that he has suffered which have no bearing on the current situation. These two have always been the nicest people to me and have helped me so many times i can't count. This was something that was done this year or last year as i understand it. What about all the prior years? Always helpful, extremely generous in the past, and wonderful neighbors is what i see. Let us stick to the issue at hand and not bash people for personal reasons. It is childish. Everyone has skeletons in their closets. His partner must be going through hell and anyone who knows him knows what a great person he is. JC will pay his debt. When did the world become so nasty. Now thats sad.jC You will have to go through this. I still love having you as a nieghbor and that will never change.Good Luck

Hopefully his police officer brother and political connections won't influence the District Attorney

Very strong rumor has it that he is cooperating with the DA and talking about people in Bellmore and N Merrick. Must be being advised by one of his political friends.

Well its about time.What about the 5 gods they call commissioners. NBFD has one that has been there over 30 yrs.They call that a dictator. He has his hand all over the fire service,how much did he get.another one has the same habits as jc.He is a top sales person in a company.How many tvs do you need? Then you have mr rescue 3,a disabled professional,yea right !!! looks like he is eating pretty GOOD.Hey FDNY how can you retire on a disability and be an active member of a FD.
The other 2 are sort of nice guys, and dont have a clue,so they better get out of dodge. OH dont forget the 6th comm, the fleet owner,and treas of the dist.Well its all part of it young man.Wake up N.bellmore ,shame it used to be a great dept.that stood for the pride of the forefathers.now its stands for the corupt SOB's
