UPDATE: Sickles Returns To Duty; PBA Blasts Board Members, GOP For Making Him A 'Scapegoat'

Complete nonsense. Are you trying to say that the town or the PD spends nothing on infrastructure, ongoing costs associated with providing services to the town residents? The town is not a profit making entity, it provides services, and services cost money.

Nassau and Suffolk are indeed among the highest paid in the country. But compair salaries to similar geographic areas ( major metroplitan areas) and you will see they are quite comparable. LA, San Fran, Dalls, Houston, etcetcetc. " Mar 29, 13 10:29 AM

Here you go Chief1: We live in a land of laws, not dictate handed down by you. One ( actually numerous) of those laws provide for the right of public employees to form unions and negotiate terms of employemtn, to include renumeration and emplyoees rights. When Suffolk County gives a civil service test for the position of PO, there are indeed thousand standing in line to take it. Most do not get the postion. Some of them are even 5'3" women. (Another thread that you were called on and failed to respond)
I assume there are provisions for drug testing, if Officer Sickles addiction went on for so long I wonder why he wasn't tested. My own opinion being that testing should only be done when someone exhibits even a modicom of impairment, any other time is an invasion of person privacy, public employee or not.

UPDATE: Hampton Bays Man Charged With Stealing Car, Leading Police On Chase Near Campus

So the campus cop should have ignored it? FWIW I believe that SUNY Cops are not just "square badeges" but are in fact MPTC certified. Thier role would have been as an assist to another agency, and no they can't issue speeding tickets or anything else, outside the campus.

So you wrote an "ataboy" letter.Not once in your ongoing trashing of the pd have you made mention of the previous leadership ( or lack therof) by name. Are you beholding to either Chief Overton or Captain Tenaglia in some way?

UPDATE: Sickles Returns To Duty; PBA Blasts Board Members, GOP For Making Him A 'Scapegoat'

It was you who stated that the PD takes up 30% of the town budget. And indeed, due to its proximity to a major metropolitan area Southampton as well as Nassau and the remainder of Suffolk are in the same cost of living areas. "among the highest" is intended to mean comparable, as in $95,000.00 is comparable to $100,000.

It's a given that you have learned all you know about law enforcement from watching tv. Now even there they show how arresting the little fish (recreational user) leads to the next one up the food chain.
But let me ask you this, the people arrested for "recreational use" were in violation of the law. Is your ego so great that you think LEO's should allow these people to walk free because YOU believe in recreational use of illegal drugs? Same goes for your claims of .08 for DWI.
Just a short civic lesson oh big headed one.....Laws are drafted and put into place by those that we elect to office. LEO's are to enforce those laws. Not pick and choose and you would have them do.
Why don't you join NORML and any other pro "recreational drug use" groups you choose and change things? I'm not saying that is a bad thing, just trying to direct your hatred for LEO's where it belongs. (Come on dude, it HAS to be more than a single traffic ticket from eons ago)" Mar 30, 13 8:12 PM

Again, our officers are paid the same as any on Long Island. Call it a PR stunt if you like and when you get your elephant and 3rd world lackey's to provide police service you can do as you please.
No, you don't wish that the cops would follow the mandates of their consciences. Their job is to enforce laws. Period. Discretion is always an option to be used sparingly. Drug arrest of persons who come to the fun and sun of the Hamptons, are not exempt from the penal law.
Just as your friend the potential pedophile is presumed innocent, the same applies until all investigations are complete.
And again, was it really just that one traffic ticket decades ago? Surely you must have almost daily run ins with the gendarme to feel so jaded! " Mar 31, 13 5:24 PM

And who are thee innocents arrested for DWI that are not?
Who committed a felony and was not charged?
Who embezzled any money?
Who was using recreational drugs, and not those prescribed?
So laws making "recreational drugs" illegal are unconscionable?
You're entitled to your opinion on that, but is not shared by the legislature, and thus by the citizens of New York.
No doubt there are serious issue, big headed one, but they are issues being investigated, and not issues you make up and delight is spreading as fact when they are not.
And again, here is my red flag......in my feeble mind, I cannot believe that a single traffic ticket decades ago has left you so scarred.
As you stand on the sidelines and criticize with others, do you giggle with delight at President Roosevelts "Man in the Arena"?" Apr 1, 13 7:59 AM

All that may be true, davidh, but if you KNOW you only read less than half of the info provided, why would you comment?" Apr 1, 13 9:58 AM

Wow! You really are in your own special world, aren't you? See people are required to pay taxes. People CHOOSE to donate to a non-profit. If the donations do not meet the budgetary needs of the non-profits, they are not able to provide the service that they seek to.

"This makes the collection less so you have to pay more" Did Yogi himself show you how that one works?

"There is no free ride except the one's that are paying the bills". huh?

Please, please show us a link as to how ANYONE, gets $1200.00 per month per child from the county.

"The county is selling the county nursing home and will be throwing out taxpaying sick patients" Totally an untruth. The county is attempting to sell, and are in the process of closing down the nursing home because it looses a $1,000,000.00 per month. I doubt that even a single patient there pays any taxes, as they are on SSDI and the elderly are on Social Security.

"This country is becoming really dumb" I have to agree with you on that, it is YOUR country after all.

Against my better judgment, I'll bite.
"Those drivers who score .08...." A) Why were they stopped and B) We've been through this before, why does their defense attorney not make a case for this? Nothing but pure supposition and unfounded speculation on this.

"Officer Gagnon when he cold cocked...." It was explained to you in great detail the requirements for a felony charge. Even given your statements at the time that the victims was still hospitalized days later ( when he was not), he did not sustain "serious physical injuries, capable of causing death" as required by the Penal Law of New York. That the DA did not seek to upgrade the charges, and we have not heard from the victim or his attorney of malfeasance or favoritism. This is just another example of your jaded view of al things dealing with STPD.

"Lieutentant Kiernan was so charged" And the findings were?

"Officer Sickles whose recreational use of prescribed drugs...." See, there you go again. I never read any reports of him using the drugs recreationally. His use of prescription drugs were a cause of his addiction, please show us where your statement is backed up.

"arresting a citizen for possession of illegal drugs may be unconscionable...." You observed officers "feigning probable cause" for the purpose of making an arrest? Or perhaps you read where one of the offenders made that as a basis for their case in court

"You are correct....' Your rants against the STPD predates any of this current topic.

5 points made, 5 points disputed by the truth. I tire of this, but must tell you, I smile when I think how you must pucker up when you see a STPD car behind you.

" Apr 1, 13 2:05 PM

Remember the victim was unconscious on the floor and was taken to the emergency room.

That means zilch, requirements for felony assault are what they are.
Cop or no cop it is the same. Even if the victim was one in your scenario. Keep in mind that once the case is out of the hands of the arresting officer, it is reviewed by the DA and then goes in front of the judge. Your constant reference to the TV line of "blue wall of silence" is sophomoric. " Apr 1, 13 9:22 PM

OK Chief, YOU made the claim of these $1200.00 payments. Now show a link.

I said nothing of what the county should or should not do in regards to the elderly being removed from the county nursing home. I just stated some facts, something you have an inability to grasp. Are these people now "being thrown into the streets" no longer paying taxes as you claim? FWIW, they are being moved to other approved nursing facilities throughout the island.

Now, try to get back on topic and please back up something you claim.

I have pointed out where you have no clue how a non-profit operates, and you talk about the government sending $ to illegals in foreign countries. ( In which case they would not be illegal as they would be nationals to their country)

You want to take comments I made on another thread out of context, then do so under that thread.

I realize that limits your ability to deflect any criticism directed to you, but that's life.

Every post, and I mean EVERY post of yours that I have responded to and asked you for clarification or proof you do the same thing. Change the subject, attack and make up more inane ramblings.

Your credibility is shot, you have none. You have not only proved yourself to be misinformed, but you blatantly make things up with no source available to prove your point.

I didn't "dodge" it. Please re-read my post::Cop or no cop it is the same. Even if the victim was one in your scenario. Keep in mind that once the case is out of the hands of the arresting officer, it is reviewed by the DA and then goes in front of the judge"

So to make it clear, no, I do not believe the situation would have been handled any differently.

" Apr 1, 13 9:40 PM

Agreed OU812, but facts, rather than innuendo, should set the course. That bigheaded one would blame STPD clouds the debate with the inference that STPD alone set the DWI limit at .08, that they enforce "silly" drug possession laws, and they serve as brown shirts.
All that and in the end he would give up his license if he were to be found out. He has marked himself as a sad man wearing a tin foil hat. I can't imagine living in that world. It's sad.
And in the end, changes will be made, employees will retire, and life will go on.
" Apr 2, 13 7:53 AM

Apologies for what you perceive as an attack. But again I must ask, if the victim was indeed injured to an extent that would warrant felony charges, why isn't he or his attorney making an issue of it. The issue is with the penal law, and understanding it. "unconscious" and taken to the emergency room" doesn't cut the mustard. " Apr 2, 13 7:57 AM

Lost my interest in cartoons eons ago. Then I turned 12 and learned to live in the real world. Try it. " Apr 2, 13 7:59 AM

Considered? yes. Charged? no. Again, review by the DA, case (or plea) heard by a Judge, and the bad guy would have an attorney who would raise the issue that the crime doesn't fit the charges.

Auditors Say Southampton Police Department Compensation System Is Easily Abused

The accountant said, however, that there is no evidence that any of the payouts for time owed to retiring officers in recent years—more than $1.5 million in 2011 and 2012 alone—were above what the officers who received them were contractually due.

So what am I missing here? Administrative practices that need to be tightened up. And if someone is being paid for something that the town is not contractually obligated to pay, sounds like the someone in charge at Town Hall is dropping the ball. " Apr 5, 13 11:48 AM

See, there you go Hat. Spewing garbage that you know nothing about. A driver who is a .08 honestly believes he/she is OK to operate a motor vehicle. That their motor skills are less sharp than they should be is of no concern to you, is it? You want the drunk that is puking and driving at 14 MPH on the Sunrise. Those guys certainly cause accidents as we have witnessed too many times. But it is the .07, .08, .09 that causes many more. While you may think it is OK to go through the day with a slight buzz, do us a favor and stay out of your car.
BTW, why must you ALWAYS vent your anger to the local PD's? Is not the .08 limit the same throughout New York State?" Apr 19, 13 6:05 PM
