East Quogue woman files $70 million lawsuit against Suffolk County and Southampton Town

Still dodging the question: Once again I ask if it is illegal to take the photos, why didn't they charge her with that and if that is what the trespass charge was in relation too, why didn't it stick?" Aug 1, 10 6:23 PM

Exactely! Hence the 70 million$ lawsuit! LOL
" Aug 1, 10 6:25 PM

Oh and ICARE, I see you didn't try to touch the "too easy" gun issue because they were legal and properly transported. " Aug 1, 10 6:30 PM

Well, I guess that's better than being a second rate whack job or a pants wetting gun hater." Aug 1, 10 6:33 PM

Two guns is an arsenal? You are so hysterical is is amazing. People like you are the reason the NRA exists.

"You are a potentially dangerous person." This is a benign statement as any human being operating a motor vehicle is "potentially dangerous". Ease up on your support for thought crime and worst case scenario paranoia. " Aug 1, 10 6:42 PM

Yeah in other parts of the world, so your point is what? Kim Jong il wouldn't stand for it, so why should we? This is America still, I think.
If it is as you say and she was detained for her rants, then the allegations in her lawsuit seem to have some factual support. You can't detain some one because you don't agree with their ideology if they haven't broken the law. Think about it, she was charged by the county for breaking a federal law, this makes no sense.

East Quogue woman files $70 million lawsuit against Suffolk County and Southampton Town

You resort to a personal attack by calling me a fool? That is weak and shows how you can't stick to this issues. You need to reread your response because nowhere in it did you address the "too easy' gun.
Earlier you claimed I called you ignorant, but it is a lack of your understanding of the English language which caused you to misinterpret what I wrote. "Please give your opinion on guns, not that it will be supported by any law or facts. Just your ignorance on the matter." This is not saying you are ignorant across the board, just that on the issue of guns and their legal possession and transportation you are ignorant.
BTW, I don't watch any Court TV. I rarely watch TV in general." Aug 1, 10 8:22 PM

No, but last time I checked the constitution was still intact. It sure seems to be when we want loitering day labors off our streets. I remember getting harassed by Police for skateboarding as a kid, but now it is okay to loiter as an illegal immigrant who should even be in the country? Hmmmmm" Aug 1, 10 8:26 PM

Valid point, but don't forget in those countries you would not even have the right to say what you think as you are fortunate enough to do here, Be careful how quick you are to subjugate other's rights, for your rights could swiftly follow." Aug 1, 10 8:29 PM

Exactly, you called her a whack job = you losing the argument.
The second rate whack job was me being sarcastic about you comment and not directed at you personally. The pants wetting gun hater is you though.;-)" Aug 1, 10 8:43 PM

Talk about name calling.... LOL Pot calling the kettle shelliot!" Aug 1, 10 8:46 PM

Go back and read who wrote that, it wasn't me genius. lol I apply the law equally to all, I would deport an illegal Irish, Polish, Russian, Israeli, English or any other nationality just as quick as someone from Mexico, Central or South America. For you to try and use the race card on me shows how pathetic your position is. I don't want anyone or any race, nationality or religion here illegally.
I have friends of many different nationalities and races, but they all have one thing in common, the one who live here are LEGALLY here. Get it illegal isn't a race or nation, it's a status.

Once again I ask if it is illegal to take the photos, why didn't they charge her with that and if that is what the trespass charge was in relation too, why didn't it stick?" Aug 1, 10 8:56 PM

Her rants weren't why they stopped her though, it was for the picture taking, either way they were stupid to arrest her and charge her with something that wouldn't stick.
True many people have ranted much less and committed far worse acts of aggression, the quiet ones are the ones you need to really worry about! Think of how unassuming most serial killers are." Aug 1, 10 9:59 PM

The last part is crazy, everyone knows the FEMA coffins are in Georgia! LOL" Aug 1, 10 10:00 PM

Oh, you got me.... I guess I'll just wear my hood to the supermarket from now on. " Aug 1, 10 10:49 PM

Good redirect from your inability to answer the simple question:

If it is illegal to take the photos, why didn't they charge her with that and if that is what the trespass charge was in relation to, why didn't it stick?

I will agree she didn't use the best judgement in her approach to photographing the helicopter. I never said it was unreasonable for the police to detain her at the scene and ascertain wether or not she was a threat. Where they screwed up was arresting her and charging her with criminal trespassing.

Think the photography rule/law is a Federal one, why would the County charge her for breaking a law they don't have jurisdiction over?

I concede no defeat to one who can not answer simple questions." Aug 2, 10 12:42 AM

When transporting them in a car in this state the place for up to 19 of them is in the trunk. They were completely legit and shouldn't have been confiscated. Her son could have taken them home, but the police wanted to bust her chops. Now she is busting back.

As for guns killing people: Guns kill people like spoons made Rosie O'Donnell fat." Aug 2, 10 12:49 AM

Mr. Z - Fact: The guns were confiscated and held for 6 months after her charge was officially dismissed. That is is a violation of her 2nd amendment rights, there was no legal justification for the confiscation of the legally transported firearms.
Fact: Thought crime is not yet on the books, except in the case of hate crime legislation. Not agree with someone ideologies doesn't grant the right to infringe on a constitutional right.

The cash is a non issue, because it is not illegal to have $13,000 on your person unless you are flying on a commercial flight.

As for the bogus criminal trespassing charge which was the impetus for her incarceration. Intent to trespass would be difficult to prove as intent is generally one of the most difficult things to prove in a trial.
If taking photos is illegal as has been claimed by many, then they should have charged her with it. To hold a 30 year resident on $50,000 bail on a criminal trespass charge is a gross misuse of power by the Judge.
Bottom line is she was held in jail for a charge that was dismissed, that alone justifies compensation.
I'm not saying 70,000,000, but she will be paid for the mishandling of this incident.

" Aug 2, 10 4:28 PM

mystcstar - You're welcome. Please do your self a favor and don't take the bait! Let your debating on this take place in the court room through your lawyers. In a forum where fact and law rule you will prevail. In here emotion and opinion rule, so it isn't worth jeopardizing a solid case." Aug 2, 10 4:32 PM

Finally you admit she was held in jail on the criminal trespassing charge, which was dismissed. This equals false arrest and malicious prosecution. The excessive bail will be addressed in the suit as well, I would imagine." Aug 2, 10 4:35 PM

Any school that could get their hands on it!" Aug 2, 10 4:37 PM

That was weak removing my comment, it was a legitimate sarcastic question to the above sarcastic comment!" Aug 2, 10 4:41 PM

If it was truly a national security concern do you really think the SHPD would have been the arresting agency? If it was the case then the FBI would have taken her away not the Town Police.

" Aug 2, 10 4:46 PM

She was basically unarmed, consider how long it would take her to open her trunk, unlock her guns and ammo, then load them. The soldier at the gate has a loaded gun in a tactical holster on their thigh, as well as an automatic rifle probably a M4. " Aug 2, 10 4:52 PM

22 and fresh out of law school? Hmmmm graduate high school 17-18 + 4 years to a BA = 21-22 then 3 years law school = 24-25 minimum. Seems like you used some fuzzy math. Don't forget most of the lawyers working for the county couldn't get jobs in private firms." Aug 2, 10 5:03 PM

East Quogue woman files $70 million lawsuit against Suffolk County and Southampton Town

Why a plea bargin? It says charges dismissed, not dismissed in satisfaction. She was on a public road on the opposite side of the road from the base. What she was doing doesn't meet the description of the charge. She may have been taking photos, but that doesn't fit the charge. The Air National Guard officials do not have jusristiction over CR31. The above statement is therefore irrelevant do to her being out of their juristiction at the time of this incident." Aug 3, 10 12:47 AM

Since when is County Road 31 an off limits area? She must have a pretty small trunk if a shotgun, AR15 and 140-500 rounds of ammo fill it up. She had 17 firearms under the legal limit in her trunk, that is right you can legally be in possession of 19 firearms outside of your home. Please don't hold your breath for the case to be thrown out, we would hate to lose you! lol

Toxic algae bloom might be worse this year

This red tide originates in the Peconic River and enters Shinnecock Bay through the Shinnecock Canal. I bet it has to do with water temperature and the release of raw sewage from the over Riverhead's overburdened sewage treatment plant. " Aug 4, 10 10:29 PM

The out flow pipes for the Riverhead STP are quite a bit east of the the traffic circle, so I wouldn't expect to see the Red Tide upstream/river from them. Note I did say this Red Tide, so where it has been spotted in the past is irrelevant.
I'll tell you what though, we can be sure it has never gone from Shinnecock to Peconic, because the water only flows one way.... into Shinnecock.

Do you dispute that the Riverhead STP releases raw sewage into the Peconic River when it receives more wastewater than it can treat?

True, I'm not! It however doesn't mean that I am a racist gun nut as this all to predicable poster has claimed. Any time someone doesn't agree with him they are either crazy, racist or a Neo Con. All this does is drawn attention to his lack of facts or law to support his opinions. The guns were legal and not an issue, so we are labeled "gun nuts"." Aug 6, 10 4:42 AM

Anyone who tries to submit a comment in all CAPS should be rejected until the retype their message." Aug 6, 10 7:20 AM

There is no provision in the NYS penal code for this interpretation of Criminal Trespass 3. The PA base was probably also an actual Military Base, Westhampton is not. They were also photographing inside the base as you state, she was photographing an ornamental helicopter, which is outside of the gate and fences. It would be interesting to know if it is on the CR 31 right of way, because if it is there goes the one paddle the Town and County had!

Very different situations. You said their eyes and cameras were trespassing, cameras you could make a case for, but eyes you are blowing smoke." Aug 6, 10 7:32 AM

Toxic algae bloom might be worse this year

Now you profess to know what my background education is?. I can tell you this much about marine biologists and grad students, if they were to solve the "mystery" then their grant money dries up, so it is in their interest to have an ongoing study to keep the money flowing. You really believe they have no idea? We have figured out how to grow a human ear on the back of a lab mouse and yet we can't pin down the catalyst for an algae bloom?

As for water temperature being a factor, this year has been considerably warmer and the bay has warmed up much earlier. This could explain why the Red Tide is hear earlier than expected. " Aug 6, 10 3:35 PM

Gobler yes, Baykeeper no, he is a tool. " Aug 6, 10 4:08 PM

Oh, and no, I don't enjoy seeing our fish and shellfish stocks degraded. Not to mention a the Blue Claw Crabs. The shellfish are pretty well gone without this, it is just icing on the cake.

Why don't you put that degree to some good use and save the bay? My dad happens to have a degree in Marine Bio too." Aug 6, 10 4:13 PM

Red Tide is caused by a "population explosion" of toxic, naturally occurring microscopic plankton (specifically, a subgroup known as dinoflagellates). "Blooms" of the poison-producing plankton are coastal phenomena caused by environmental conditions, which promote explosive growth. Factors that are especially favorable include warm surface temperatures, high nutrient content, low salinity, and calm seas. Rain followed by sunny weather in the summer months is often associated with red tide blooms.

Looks like I was right about the water temperature. High nutrient content can be a byproduct of "raw sewage". I would count the STP out so fast it could be contributing. " Aug 6, 10 4:21 PM

I wouldn't count the STP out so fast it could be contributing." Aug 6, 10 4:22 PM
