Oddone won't take stand; both sides rest, and closing arguments slated Tuesday

If there were to be a guilty verdict which I doubt, there will be a prompt appeal." Nov 28, 09 4:00 PM

Supreme Court lifts injunction on use of Aldrich Park

You should try and be more accurate least you sound more foolish than you are. I challenge you to find one comment posted here that "incites violence" any way. Why would you post such a easily refuted allegation? Please try and stick to the facts rather than making false accusations. Here is an example someone crossing the boarder between checkpoints is a criminal, as they have broken the laws governing the proper channels of entry to this great over burdened country.

To revisit the first comment: Not On CPF Land!!!! It's simple enough, there are strict guidelines as to what uses are lawful and intended for CPF purchased land and a hiring hall is not one of them." Nov 28, 09 9:13 PM

Wrong it constitutes being a wiseass. It doesn't call for escalating the situation to a physical confrontation. Too bad he didn't assault him maybe he would be alive today.... So you condone the use of force by your friend just not against him? Maybe he should have kept his hands to himself and called the police to take care of the situation as he was suppose to. Instead he in essence started a fight which is completely the opposite of what he was paid to do there. You just can't deal with the fact that he was part of the problem instead of the solution. You disgrace his memory with your hypocritical assertions." Nov 29, 09 3:50 AM

No matter how you try to spin it he was wrong to have pushed him." Nov 29, 09 3:53 AM

Your baseless rant of who and what your believe I am shows your ignorance.
That you would say Andrew was working within the capacity of his job description when he pushed, shoved whatever you want to call it a customer, shows once again your ignorance. A bouncers job is to provide security in the establishment, this is not done by starting fights. Pushing someone is a great way to start a fight, this is what he did. He didn't try to remove Oddone from the Publick House which he probably should've done. He instead chose to escalate the situation in a manner which was the exact opposite of what he was paid to do. Since you are quite inept at reading or maybe just a little slow I will explain that this does not excuse or attempt to excuse what Oddone did.
He overreacted by the manner in which he responded. He should've just called the cops as you said which by the way is one of the few rational things you have posted. I have no problem with cops or correction officers where you deduced this from I don't know. I can only think that when faced with the truth, you grasp at anything to make my factual statements seems less valid.
I can understand you upset if in fact Andrew was a friend of yours, but to resort to condoning the mistreatment of others because of a differing view is a sad place for you to be." Nov 29, 09 12:54 PM

This is one of your dumbest comment on this thread as if "roid rage" comes from watching the UFC fights. You have achieved a new level of cluelessness with this statement. If you knew anything about MMA, you would know that the "chokehold" most commonly used from behind is called a Rear Naked Choke, this move is designed to protect the windpipe while pinching off the carotid arteries. The chokehold Oddone employed on Andrew crushed his windpipe thus making it highly unlikely that he was training in MMA or specifically Brazilian JuJitsu from which that hold originates. Read learn grow:-)

Baseless accusations read the news stories. I have never said all illegals commit crimes once they are here nor have I said anything about race so you and you bias remarks are what are truly baseless here. For you to stretch my comments to cause the incitement of violence is ridiculous. Believe me if I thought violence was the answer I would be here pissing into the wind with you.
You show your weakness by attacking someones choice of an avatar, don't you realize it is done to get under your skin and it works, you are such an easy mark.
I may switch mine to Stalin just because I know it bothers YOU!!!!! LOL

Trespassing charges dropped against East Quogue woman arrested near ANG base; wrongful arrest lawsuits filed

Take your race card and put it where it belongs up your ___. You are wrong, not supported by the law and that's it. The NRA is more powerful than you and all your pinko buddies will ever be. Have a nice day>" Nov 30, 09 4:32 PM

You have a point, but why didn't they charge her with taking the "illegal" pictures?
Why were the Suffolk County Sheriff's involved at all. Do they have jurisdiction over the Army National Guard Base? Are those signs posted by the Sheriff's Department? Seems they were outside their jurisdiction making false arrests. " Nov 30, 09 4:39 PM

You are angry and irrational, don't hold your breath waiting for me to be in jail let alone his cellmate. The way I think will catch up with me someday this makes little if any sense, but coming from you I wouldn't expect it to. Remember to breathe when trying to think it may help your feeble little mind to have some more oxygen." Nov 30, 09 6:04 PM

We could enforce the law and secure the boarders. That we haven't secured the boarders after 9/11 is pretty sad. This problem has really ballooned since then." Nov 30, 09 6:07 PM

Ten minutes to load a gun, you really are clueless, a colonial era black powder musket could be loaded and fired in 20 seconds. That's 30 shots in the ten minutes you tried to say it takes to fire once. More disinformation from your hysterical viewpoint." Nov 30, 09 6:31 PM

Oddone jury will consider lesser charges

Thanks, I blew that one lovely! LOL

Are you sure that the jury must return verdicts on all three possibilities?

Montauk fishermen cited for violations

So throw it over the side if it comes up in the net and goes over the limit? That makes sense talk about waste of resources. The fisheries are over regulated and at present. The need to take a common sense look at what they are doing. NY fishermen get the short end of the stick. " Dec 2, 09 1:10 AM

Defense seeks mistrial; Judge rejects motion

No, you didn't but you didn't post about the article either just an attack on her, childish. I guess I can understand why though, with these lesser charges being introduced, the case doesn't seem as airtight as you would've liked to have thought it was. Stay on topic Ms. Out of Stater." Dec 3, 09 3:11 PM

Still trying to justify the actions of an over zealous Sheriff's Deputy? Good luck the court has already sided with mystcstar on the trespassing charge. The guns weren't an issue or there would've been charges associated with them. Going after a scapegoat because the trial isn't going in the direction you would've hoped? Don't you have something to say about the article above?
By the way speculation on my attitude is pointless since you know nothing of me so your accusations of me having it in for cops and correction officers is off, I have family members who are cops. I want to see justice done here, I just don't believe Murder 2 is it. I betting on a lesser charge, but I could be wrong." Dec 3, 09 3:21 PM

"I am not judging you I am stating the facts you used poor judgement." Do you really believe this is fact? If you do than you are dumber than I thought, that is my opinion. Another of my opinions is that paranoid individuals like yourself are more dangerous than someone TRANSPORTING their LEGAL rifles from the shooting range to their home in the manner prescribed by law. Where do you pull your ridiculous assertion that Ms. Genovese has ever or would ever sit outside a school with guns in her trunk. If she were to do this on the way back from the range and in the process of picking up her children, mind you while parked on a public street, there once again would be no violation of the law. If you don't like guns you are living in the wrong country, for they are here to stay." Dec 3, 09 3:39 PM

How creative! Another comment not addressing the article, because your position is losing ground? I can't wait to hear your excuses and condemnation of the jury should they find Oddone Not Guilty of Murder 2. " Dec 3, 09 6:19 PM

Isn't the defense attorney's job to defend to the fullest of their ability? Why would they ignore anything that may provide a favorable outcome for their client?
Wrong side of the law? First Amendment covers him/her. If there were any substance to your claim the subpoena would've been issued. If you think another trial would be costly, just imagine what infringing on someone's First Amendment rights through a wrongful prosecution would cost. " Dec 3, 09 6:30 PM

Don't think the Boondock Saints would take this cause up. They were into taking care of issues where it was clear what the intent was, black & white so to speak, this is a grey matter." Dec 3, 09 6:33 PM

Residents are interested in proposed sewer district for Flanders and Riverside

They say the Riverhead sewer district is "nearing capacity" yet there are already times when it receives more waste water than it can handle. At these times it gets pumped into the Peconic River!!! Then we scratch our heads and wonder where the Brown and Red Tides come from. Hmmmm that's a tough one.
How about building this one to handle all that it may encounter and then some. While Sewer Districts can have a great benefit to the environment, it is quickly mitigated by overflow discharges into sensitive ecosystems." Dec 3, 09 6:58 PM

Southampton Town could vote on dark skies legislation soon

UNCONSTITUTIONAL. This is over stepping the bounds just like the pool heating/covering laws. Telling us when we can use our lighting that we bought and paid for is appalling. Good luck with this violation of reason and trust. Can anyone say ACLU, that's who I'll be bring to Justice Court should the need arise." Dec 3, 09 7:20 PM

Wind turbine hearing is pushed back to January

Indeed nodding or maybe bobbing. I like bobbing, because then they can be referred to as Bobbleheads, which is kinda cute.

Defense seeks mistrial; Judge rejects motion

This is not entirely true. There are plenty of cases in which the autopsy is admitted into evidence. It is not hearsay when the Medical Examiner is available for cross examination. There is always the chance that the ADA wished to emphasize certain aspects of the autopsy through having the Medical Examiner testify according to her view of the relevant content.
Your assertions of autopsy reports not being proper evidence are not supported by the Supreme Court see below:

EVIDENCE — CONFRONTATION CLAUSE — SECOND CIRCUIT HOLDS THAT AUTOPSY REPORTS ARE NOT TESTIMONIAL EVI- DENCE. — United States v. Feliz, 467 F.3d 227 (2d Cir. 2006), cert. denied, 75 U.S.L.W. 3438 (U.S. Feb. 20, 2007) (No. 06-8777).
The Supreme Court’s decision in Crawford v. Washington1 has re- quired courts to reevaluate the circumstances under which admitting a hearsay statement at a criminal trial comports with the Confrontation Clause of the Sixth Amendment.2 Prior to Crawford, under Ohio v. Roberts,3 statements of an unavailable declarant were constitutionally admissible at trial only if they bore adequate “indicia of reliability.”4 In Crawford, the Court set aside the “indicia of reliability” standard and instead drew a distinction between testimonial and nontestimonial hearsay.5 Testimonial hearsay is constitutionally admissible in a criminal trial only if the defendant had a prior opportunity to cross-examine the unavailable declarant.6 Recently, in United States v. Feliz,7 the Second Circuit held that autopsy reports are not testimonial under Crawford.8 As a result, these reports may be admitted into evidence at trial without affording a defendant the right to confront and cross- examine the medical examiner who prepared the report. The Second Circuit’s decision in Feliz is not unique; the few courts that have ad- dressed the admissibility of autopsy reports post-Crawford have simi- larly held that they are nontestimonial hearsay.9 The Feliz court’s opinion also resembles those of other courts in that it appears to have been motivated more by concerns of hampering prosecutions than by the definition of “testimonial” set forth in Crawford and its progeny. However, because autopsy reports are prepared in anticipation of trialand because the practical consequences of finding autopsy reports to be testimonial are likely not as grave as some courts have anticipated, the Second Circuit should have held in Feliz that autopsy reports in homicide cases are testimonial evidence under Crawford.
On February 4, 1999, a federal grand jury in New York returned a seventeen-count indictment against Jose Erbo and other alleged co- caine distributors, including Miguel Feliz.10 Among the charges were multiple counts of murder.11 Erbo pleaded not guilty, and the case went to trial.12 At trial, the government introduced into evidence nine autopsy reports to establish the cause of death in each of the charged homicides.13 Instead of calling the physicians who had conducted the autopsies to testify, the government introduced the reports into evi- dence through a summary witness, Dr. James Gill, an employee of the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner of New York.14 Dr. Gill had not conducted any of the autopsies described in the reports he presented.15 Despite Erbo’s objection that the presentation of the autopsies violated his Sixth Amendment confrontation right, the district court admitted them into evidence under the business records exception to the hearsay rule under the Federal Rules of Evidence.16 At the conclusion of the trial, the jury found Erbo guilty of twelve counts listed in the indict- ment, including three counts of murder.17
Being that the Medical Examiner was available and testifying, the autopsy report would have been admissible into evidence in this case." Dec 5, 09 1:33 AM
