Once again Chief, just read the headlines, no need to read the whole story. We know your attention span is short." Apr 19, 13 2:55 PM

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

Just for once, try to stay on topic here Chief. First off, I am not a cop.
How does FBI salaries tie into this story?

Are you now in Hat's camp of permitting DWI in order to stop the "Gestapo like Tactics" of SHTPD?" Apr 20, 13 2:21 PM

I didn't open any doors. Chief claimed that I am a cop. I am not. Though I do have family "up west" who work as "LEOs"
And yes, I am biased in their favor. " Apr 21, 13 2:55 PM

Oh I see... you read it on the internet.......are you a French model as well?" Apr 21, 13 2:56 PM

Here's some red meat for you Hat:
The number of FBI/ATF Agents that do the tasks you describe are minimal. Here's an off-topic for you to chew on: Ruby Ridge and the Compound at Waco, Tx.
Now find me an FBI agent that has walked into a house where Bubba just cleaned his wife's clock cause diner was late. Or your DWI friend that just can't be arrested and responds like a caged animal. Or the despondent senior who takes his life on Christmas Eve. It would serve no purpose to continue citing examples, just chew on it for a bit. And while you do that, let's hear how often over the last 25-30 years you expressed yourself to the power elite about your concern over the ever increasing expenses of public employees.

Southampton is one word.

The term is hit AND run.

Westhampton Beach Middle School Teacher Pleads Not Guilty In Riverhead Court

Chief marches to his own drum, wowzer. I know I missed the story where this happened "numerous" times. Chief caught it. He starts by stating that the man is innocent until proven guilty, then states "this idiot who likes to videotape little kids in a locker room" Speaking of idiots, there is a difference between "due" and "do" Chief. I know I did read where the Detective from WHBPD was involved in an accident and was unable to do the investigation in a timely manner. That, plus the small size of the village/school district made sense that the State PD do the investigation. Small facts that Chief doesn't need to take into account as he rambles on with his garbage.
" May 7, 13 3:12 PM

YOU under MY skin? Not in this lifetime.
Once again I called you to task for your fabrications, and in your response you make up some more. You "heard the DA's office was getting a lot of heat from parents" Really? Just where did you "hear" this?
Of course if there is a murder in Suffolk the homicide bureau shows up. If one owns property in the 5 east end towns you pay for local PD services and some to the County for specialized services such as homicide, arson, etc. In western Suffolk you pay for patrol cars as well as the specialized services.
A mob scene the NYSP shows up? Just how many State PD do you think are on the East End at any time. Never any more than 5. Just because the press release say that NYSP were called, doesn't mean a dozen showed.
Now not for anything, but I have previously stated that I am not a cop, nor married to one, but do have family as LEO's up west.
Now please, a link to those Somali voters? And another for the dead people voting? And the license to vote and own a weapon as well please. Just check the Constitution first. Do I need to repost every challenge I have made to you regarding your unfounded and fabricated statements?
Do us a favor and research what you post and I wont bother you anymore." May 7, 13 9:43 PM

Southampton Town Board Will Consider Barring Cops From Politics

Of course they knew more than what we read here. My point being that unless the driver had some very distinguishing physical characteristics, a description of an Hispanic male, even with a picture would have generated an enormous number of false sightings. " May 7, 13 9:48 PM

Gotcha! You have intimate friends in every hamlet of the town and they shared this with you.
Please tell us when "the police did nothing" and when "the $300,000 administrator tried to sweep it under a rug" And who hired friends?
While you're at it, I'm still waiting for a link to show how "Somali's invaded and took over voting in Columbus Ohio"
And the "license to vote" and "license to own a weapon"
You see when you post things, you should be able to cite a source to back you up. FWIW, I don't follow you around, you post such incredibly inaccurate statements, you need to be called on them.
Now go away." May 9, 13 10:13 AM

Please Chief, right here, I am again asking you to show any reasonable link that shows where Somali's of unknown citizenship voted. Please. And I implore you to track that link back to see the original source.
"universal federal ID" ? Are you serious? Why don't we just replace that with a 21st century microchip?

Piece of cake, Chief. There exists a legally negotiated labor contract. You don't like it? Sorry, that's life.
FWIW, this is common throughout the metro area, it is not just SHTPD.
Are those numbers mind boggling? Sure they are.
In your special world do you think you are going to change anything by blathering on and on about it here?

Just some documentable facts........

The first civil suit brought by one of the released drug dealers was tossed out of court as reported by Tuesday on April 29th.

DA Spota said just because there were technical issues with the arrest does not mean the dealer was innocent and the civil judge concurred.

Again, FACTS, something one needs to have when taking a position. " May 11, 13 1:50 PM

"we can reconstitute the STPD as a new-from -the-ground-up organization with a rational pay scale".

No, you can't. You should know that if that scenario ever were to happen, that SCPD would cost taxpayers more for the interim period, while you recruit elephant riding, pith helmeted Nepalese to patrol the streets of Southampton. You should also know, that under the state labor laws, the organization that you propose to replace STPD would be entitled to similar pay, benefits and work conditions as surrounding police departments. It's the law, like it or not. (Can you smell the "arrogance" of truth?)
The one shining benefit of course would be freedom to drive drunk.
Because we know that SCPD does not arrest anyone with a blood alcohol level of .08%. it's only STPD that does that. No one else anywhere in the state does. Everyone else makes their own rules." May 11, 13 1:56 PM

To hat, PBR and CaptainSig,

Public Employees Fair Employment Act, New York State Civil Service Law (aka The Taylor Law)

Please see NYS Taylor Law Section 209 Sub 4, (c) (V) a through d.

To PBR: my apologies for not sitting here throughout the weekend. At 607PM you requested the above info, as I hadn't responded by 830 you saw fit to post a reminder. Again, my apologies. the play at Southampton Cultural Center had my attention, not your comments.

To hat: Put your thesaurus down and pick up a reading comprehension book. "Right wing news sites"? Are you into your cups during the daytime? " May 12, 13 9:18 AM

Would you be so kind as to show a link as to where your scenario of "reboot" occurred?

I imagine your last sentence refers to all police department throughout Nassau and Suffolk, as the pay rates are at least competitive with each other. " May 12, 13 3:26 PM

OK Chief, you've gone from "hundreds of thousands of dollars" to 50K.

Can you show us how you came to this number?" May 12, 13 3:28 PM

Not an attorney here PBR, (but I did fix a Japanese transmission once) so I have no clue.

However, having said that, this idea of bankruptcy was started on another thread and has no basis, that I am aware of, are you?" May 12, 13 3:33 PM

Indeed I do. Public employees in NYS are prohibited from striking, I would think ,( but do not know the statute) that prohibits feral employees from doing the same. PATCO went on strike mere months after President Reagan was sworn in. He had received their endorsement in the 1980 elections. He was essentially "the new sheriff in town" and had no choice but to fire them, his message was not to PATCO, but to the world as it was his first chance to show his "stuff" Current air traffic controllers are unionized, but I have no idea where they stand contractually compared to PATCO.
I can appreciate your opinion of a bankruptcy situation, but I don't hear anything from municipal accountants or critics qualified to weigh in on that. " May 12, 13 4:06 PM

Southampton Town Police Logged Long Hours Following Sandy

Sig and Hat,
What is obvious Sig is that you did not have the attention span to read the source cited. Hat, your scenario of firing the STPD and replacing them the next day ( or even with an interim period of SCPD) doesn't hold water.
The Taylor Law provides for:
Cops to form a union
Union entitled to negotiate a contract
Should the negotiation process fail
Mediation, fact finding, then binding arbitration
Under binding arbitration, the panel SHALL use surrounding jurisdictions as comparisons.

That being the case most police departments throughout Long Island are compensated in a similar manner. Though for some reason you seem to think that STPD is the only PD on the island earning the type of money they get. Please note that every 18-24 months Tuesday does an expose' on Nassau and Suffolk PD with numbers that would make you cry.

Sig, in the reduction of starting salaries, that would be a negotiated term of the contract, I have no clue as to how Boston does anything. The outfielder watched it go over the fence and into the parking lot.

" May 13, 13 11:55 AM

Disbanding was not the point of the debate. It was in regards to the points of the Taylor Law, and the method that has driven salaries to their current levels.
Now once again, look at your tax bill, what do you pay more for, Fire Services Ambulance, or Police? All of this based on a town board meeting, geez

Nice of you to admit that my assertions on the Taylor Law is accurate, dude. " May 13, 13 2:45 PM

That being the case, i.e. disbanding versus the arbitration system, I'll take a bite of a crow sandwich and express my apologies. Could the same situation as in Greenport happen here? I guess, under the right circumstances, but the likely replacement department would be SCPD, and we would see an increase in PD taxes.
However, if the idea is to disband, have an interim PD then reorganize at a lower salary scale, it would be a futile effort. The first thing the union representing the new PD would do is wait out the negotiation process through arbitration where they would likely be awarded a salary and benefits scale to surrounding PDs. Do it again? How soon would it take for a Judge to put a stop to it? Either way, this discussion has run its course. " May 13, 13 5:06 PM

I know I will regret asking the obvious question Chief, but any chance you can cite a source for your tripling pension costs? Again this is a statewide issue, not just pertaining to STPD.

While you're at it, some more info please on the 50K (down from hundreds of thousands) cost for the recent civil case re the drug dealer?" May 13, 13 5:09 PM

Well you started at hundreds of thousands of dollars, then dropped it to 50K.

Doing my homework? You have NEVER cited a source when asked to.

You fabricate what you type." May 13, 13 11:45 PM

Good job!
Now if the first one was dismissed, and if others are for the same reason, you'll be at a lost for something to complain about on this issue. " May 14, 13 10:43 AM

From the thug:

So your plan would be to DROP the amount someone is fined?

You suggested a $50. fine, current law provides for $500.

Drivers are well aware of the dangers of drinking and driving, (except Hat) just as they are aware of hundreds of other laws on the books, yet they still violate them, do they not?" May 14, 13 1:42 PM
