Oddone trial nears second month of testimony

I really doubt your opinion matters to the members of The Bridge. Remember it is a private club you have to be a member or a guest of a member to play there.
You tell everyone you know what scumbags the the golf club are and they all reply that they will never go there again or will tell others not to go there either. LOL You are so ignorant all you will do is free up some tee times for others who are waiting to play there & could care less about your vendetta against the club.
The club scumbags as you call them are scumbags because they are funding Oddone's defense? These same people also have given money to Reister's family so maybe they aren't as scummy as you think or do you not think & just type nonsense. There is a legal term for what you are doing & it's slander!!! Now who is the scumbag? " Nov 12, 09 7:46 PM

Mayor says Dune Road widening project will move forward despite opposition

A sign at Jessup's Bridge as suggested notifying anyone headed to Cupsogue Beach when the parking lot is full makes sense & should have already been done. It seems this would eliminate a large part of the problem. " Nov 12, 09 8:02 PM

Medical examiner says Reister could have recovered if chokehold had been released in time

I know it doesn't justify his actions but Oddone was assaulted by Mr. Reister first! That seems to be overlooked quite often here. It was a verbal pissing contest until Mr. Reister escalated the situation to a physical level. Don't twist my words here, I'm not condoning what Oddone did, just saying that Reister started something that spiraled way out of control. As for anger issues if Oddone mouthed off to Reister as it appears he did, it seems that Rester had his own anger issues/demons to contend with as he struck out with the push, shove, kick or grab depending on whose testimony you believe. He was not an innocent victim here, he was a participant, even the catalyst. " Nov 16, 09 8:43 PM

He was assaulted, not just asked politely to step down. Andrew's job was not to put people in place it was to insure everyones safety, how pushing someone off a table does this I do not know." Nov 16, 09 8:46 PM

To push someone who is drinking & not expect a reaction is foolish, I did this once with a roommate of mine. He hit the door after I had pushed him & came right back at me taking me by surprise, in guess what a chokehold! We went to the ground at which time I broke out of it & turned the tables on him, mounted him pinning an arm with one knee & proceeding to strike him open palm on the side of the head. Fortunately, I got a hold of my "rage" before I did any serious damage. If I had been being hit & pulled all the while people yelling & screaming I don't know how easy it would have been to regain my composure & come out of that adrenal state." Nov 16, 09 8:55 PM

Never said it was in the same ballpark, just saying he could have done things in a more sensible manner that would've resulted in a a different outcome. Like I said I'm not justifying Oddone's actions, but I am not so blind as to not recognize Andrew's part in this. " Nov 16, 09 9:08 PM

Southampton Town planners say new church needs state approval

How about no church? No problem." Nov 16, 09 9:14 PM

Medical examiner says Reister could have recovered if chokehold had been released in time

Yes, that's part of it. I do realize if I hadn't pushed him i would've never ended up in that chokehold! I can see my part in his reaction," Nov 16, 09 9:16 PM

No, I like you am going by the testimony as provided thus far in the case. If you are not giving validity to the testimony than I don't know how you can expect a conviction. I do know that not pushing Oddone would have had a different outcome." Nov 16, 09 9:27 PM

As your below post say of the almost identical case I think he will likely get something similar. Which I believe he should. I just don't think the death penalty or life in prison are in order. Everyone is talking about the rage he exhibited, would it be less of a crime if he had coldly & quickly snapped his neck or if it had been a robbery. How about if he had killed a black guy who worked as a car detailer instead of a White corrections officer. The stabbing at the Hampton Bays Diner didn't seem to create the call for the death penalty or life in prison why is that?" Nov 16, 09 11:30 PM

Plan resurfaces to acquire Riverside property

Come on Jay do we need a "view shed" from the traffic circle people have a hard enough time navigating the thing without added distractions! " Nov 16, 09 11:42 PM

Medical examiner says Reister could have recovered if chokehold had been released in time

Im not saying he acted in self defense. I am saying that he was provoked by the initial assault by Mr. Reister. Being that Reister was a corrections officer, I would've thought he would know better than to turn his back on someone with whom he just escalated a verbal argument to a physical level. There was no need to have done that in the first place & certainly no right.
I think Oddone should sue the Publick House for their sexually discriminating policy that led to this incident in the first place. Had they not allowed anyone to dance on tables that would be understandable, but that they used only gender to decide who can & can not dance on tables makes them liable." Nov 17, 09 4:08 PM

Go to hell? That ought to drum up some sympathy for you." Nov 17, 09 4:10 PM

Turkeys in East Hampton: Friends or food?

They need to be thinned since there are no natural predators left on the island. Maybe you being so ecologically conscious & understanding of the delicate balance in natural, would support the reintroduction of the Wolf and Eastern Cougar. This is the only way to have a true natural balance without the need for hunting. These birds and the White Tailed Deer are not Apex foragers, in a truly balanced ecosystem. What you seek to do by protecting them from limited culling is more unnatural than hunting. Remember we have canine teeth in our mouths for tearing flesh. If someone wants to go out & hunt down a turkey for their thanksgiving meal instead of buying a factory farm raised, hormone engorged bird, then so be it. Who are you to ruin someones holiday meal? Go advocated for those turkeys in the factory farms that never get to take step or see daylight!!!

So according to your raciest opinion, a person's color, job or place in the community dictates their degree of protection under the law? I think our constitution says otherwise. " Nov 17, 09 4:42 PM

No, you're saying that< I wouldn't say that for one because a cop wouldn't be pushing someone they just pulled over. They wouldn't do that as it is an escalating action which would not create more control of traffic stop for them.
Poor attempt at an analogy. I'm not comparing the amount of force used & saying it was right or equal. You are saying that Oddone showed he didn't have an ounce of self control, well what about Reister he resorted to physical force first, what about his self control? I wish this hadn't happened but it did & there are specific reasons things took the coarse they did." Nov 17, 09 10:02 PM

Turkeys in East Hampton: Friends or food?

I don't suscribe to organized religion. You should keep in mind more blood has been shed in the name of religion than anything else in the history of man. If a bird, say a robin craps on my laundry while it's on the line, it ceases to be innocent. As far as I am aware the only religion that grants animals passage to an afterlife and thus protects them from killing, as they would have a spirt is hinduism. There is no religious doctrine that protects animals. The sick religious zealots who molest children, could care less about some dumb birds. The turkey hunting is for a very limited time and for a good purpose. Thou shall not kill is a nice thought but a little impractical in this day and age. " Nov 18, 09 1:38 PM

World War II was an political, economic and social war. Much of the war was based on religious policies. Hitler's persecution of the Jews, Emperor Hirohito's military policies were based on Shintoism. Looking back into Ancient History we can also see many examples of wars based on religion: the Ancient Egyptians invasion into Nubia to spread polytheism, the Aryans invasion into the Indus River Valley Civilization, Chandgruptas and Asoka's invasion into the Deccan Plateau before their conversion to Buddhism, Roman Empire's persecution of the Christians before the it's fall in 475 AD, the early middle ages in 536 when Clovis converted to Christianity and led his troops under the Christian sword, in 1054 the crusades when the eastern and western christians joined together to fight the Muslims, even during the age of exploration many explorers were sailing not only for economic reasons but to spread religion as well, the entire era of absolutism after the renaissance was based on divine right to rule. The mandate of heaven in China was also based on divine right to rule and caused many fights between the Shang, Tang, Song dynasty and the Chi'n dynasty. Hindus and Muslims had fought for centuries in India until their partition in 1947 with the creation of Pakistan. Since the creation of Pakistan Muslims and Hindus are still fighting over Kashmir. The creation of Israel in 1947 has also created many religious wars in the middle east between the Palistineans and the Jews. The Middle East along with the Balkan Peninsula have continued to be a "hot" spot for religious warfare; Albania, Bosnia, Croatia, and the Iranian Revolution in 1979 to set up a theocracy.
Empathy is not defined as having compassion for animals. Empathy is defined by being able to put yourself in "someone" else's shoes. Your definition is off based and inaccurate.I would also like to hear your definition of a psychopath as I do not believe an medical definition of psychopath includes the word "empathy".
For this to be considered sport hunting the turkeys destination would need to be mounted and stuffed on the wall not stuffed on a platter on a festive Thanksgiving Day dinner table.
Do we need for them to become a problem like the white tailed deer before we take action? " Nov 18, 09 5:11 PM

Medical examiner says Reister could have recovered if chokehold had been released in time

It wasn't an insult it was just calling attention to her lack of understanding or compassion to a different viewpoint. It is ironic for someone to seek compassion & when it doesn't come freely wish ill upon others. You ask how dare I.... the first amendment to our Constitution... that gives us all the right to voice our opinions.
On your second point if he is truly insane than he wouldn't be fit to stand trial, as your comment isn't fit to stand logic." Nov 19, 09 3:32 AM

Why have you wasted your time why you weak & off base comments, they show your lack of reading comprehension & retention of material. You claimed citing my own experiences which are not comparable to this case? Why because I got out of the chokehold? I never claimed that Mr. Reister was less of a victim because he was a corrections officer. In fact I'm somewhat shocked he was victimized! How poor of a reader are you I never said Oddone response was reasonable. It was excessive to say the least. Like someone said on a previous thread had Oddone fell and split his head upon being pushed we would be discussing an entirely different case at this time. As for an us against them attitude towards law enforcement, I don't see how u drive that from my comments. There are good cops, bad cops and others in the middle. As for Reister from what I've heard he was a great C.O. who was liked by everyone. You know less of me than I do of this case and so far you are striking out. " Nov 19, 09 3:51 AM

Guns don't kill people, people kill people and can do so with a variety of tools as well as their bare hands. " Nov 20, 09 11:44 AM

This is your most foolish comment yet in this thread as the weapons weren't discovered until they search her car so obviously they had and issue with her taking the picture.
Maybe the off duty SHTP detective that reported her was at the range and had seen her fine choice of weapons, then decided to follow her." Nov 20, 09 11:49 AM

peoplefirst-"or every story about gun violence against innocents, there are twenty of guns protecting their rights." You say something in defense of civilian gun owners and then tell a story about "a female officer".

Turkeys in East Hampton: Friends or food?

Turkeys are too large for the foxes to hunt except the younger one which would be protected by the adults. Foxes largest prey tend to be rabbits.
The red fox is not indigenous to LI they were introduced by the english for fox hunts." Nov 20, 09 12:19 PM

To hhs: Thrice wrong not quite. Wikipedia is not the most accurate or end all for facts and most certainly not for definitions. Did you write the entries you cited?

WWII- The Japanese soliders ALL fought and died with the belief if they died in battle fighting for their emperor who they considered to be their god they would go to their equivalent of heaven. This means all Japanese and anyone killed by them died or were killed for their god (emperor). This cuts into your total from WWII.
Just think of how many north, south and central American Indians were killed because they were "savages" because they didn't pray to the same god as the western european settlers. This number is hard to quantify but 60 million is a fair median.
Here are some figures of religious martyrs from the main religions of today since their origin.

Muslim: 80M
Christian: 70M
Hindu: 20M
Buddhist: 10M
Jewish: 9M
Sikh: 2M

As for Rome did you forget the christians being thrown to the lions? Have to tell you the last post was written with a global history teacher present so while you huff and puff about wikipedia citations one of my references holds a masters in history. There is an unofficial number of 809 million people who have died throughout history in the name of god. Even if the actual number is half of this, it would still be many times more than your WWII figure and that is before it is adjusted for the Japanese deaths attributable to their god.

In all seriousness though, they will if left unchecked become a detriment to themselves. Ideally there would be some form of a natural predator to perform this duty. I don't personally don't hunt, but do understand that for some people it is a hobby, sport, tradition and even a way of life. Our society takes and has all types, hunters are part of it and shouldn't be demonized for there way of life.

Yes, I totally missed the meaning of the quotations. Thanks for clearing that up I was confused when reading it, after taking in all of the previous gun paranoia." Nov 20, 09 1:20 PM

I don't think anyone has ever come close to that with a gun let alone their bare hands. I bet I could come close with a sword though as long as no one had a gun.
As for a knife I could probably get 10-15 no problem! LOL" Nov 20, 09 3:04 PM

See, there was an issue with the picture. The guns were totally legit." Nov 20, 09 3:11 PM

Yes, they most certainly do, as they have the right to own them & to fire them under the appropriate conditions.
As for my foot it never made it to my mouth because I didn't misread plainly written words as you did, I misinterpreted the quotation marks meaning.:)" Nov 20, 09 3:21 PM
