Supervisor Kabot will fight DWI charge, stay in race

What ashame, Ms. Kabot should be absolutely ashamed of herself for the behavior displayed that evening,What ever happened to leading thorugh example? As a public figure you are always held to a higher standard, this is who represents the people of Southampton Town? What a dissapointment. If she in her mind believes she is not guilty of the offense, why did she refuse a breath test? Let me ask you something, If you were stopped for a traffic infraction and the officer accused you of consuming alcohol and he requested you to submit to a breath test, wouldn't you want to prove to the officer that you were sober? ,if you knew you were. The only reason any person would refuse a breath test is because they knew they had a little bit too much that night. In my professional experience any person refusing any chemical test is trying to hide something." Sep 10, 09 1:21 PM

In reference to Bridget325 comment of a bogus traffic stop for driving over the yellow line, this is a traffic viloation and in most cases petty ,however a legal reason to stop a motorist. There are pretty few officers that will even issue a citation for the violation, but from experience "minor violations " can lead to major arrests, all citizens of the community should be thankful of a proactive police department in the fight against drunk driving., a potential tragedy was prevented that evening.

Southampton Town Supervisor Kabot, attorney give first interview on DWI arrest

In my professional experience in law enforcemnat the a pre-screen breath device, a.k.a. " the breathalyzer" in extremly accurate in obtaining a person blood alcohol concentration, (BAC). Most motorists when stopped under the suspicion of DWI will consent to field sobriety tests, however fear the breath test, the fact of the matter is that people are under the assumption that they can control the outcome of the field tests given, however the breath test, they have no control of the outcome. Lets get something clear anyone who refuses a breath test knows that they had too much to drink and feels as if there will be no evidence to prosecute the offense, breath tests dont lie. This is going to an expensive lesson for Ms Kabot." Sep 24, 09 12:40 PM

Kabot's court date is delayed for a third time

A breath test is not needed for a conviction, refusal of a breath test is an automatic one year revocation of your drivers license, not taking a breath test is foolish and makes for a very expensive and lenghty process in the court system, if it were so easy no one would take the test. Anyone who refuses a breath test knows they should not of been driving." Jan 22, 10 11:21 AM

East Hampton to let Surf Lodge keep live music

East Hampton Town councilwoman could face charges for interfering in arrest

The fact of the matter is that the EHTPD had made a lawful arrest for DWI, the residents of this Township should be proud of its proactive police department in keeping the community safe, and ashamed of this town board members poor behavior." Mar 9, 10 8:37 PM

East Hampton Town councilwoman could face charges for interfering in arrest

Pressguy you seem like you have a lot of time on your hands, the fact of the matter is that law enforcement is not like anything you see in the movies, like any job there can be down time, you seem to only see this, the public does not see what really happens." Mar 10, 10 11:04 AM

I do not believe that the police force was targeting aTown Gvt. official's kid, however the police force is targeting a variety of problems, drunk driving is just one of them, it is ashamed that it had to turn out this way, do you really think that the police knew who was driving that car at that hour?"

East Hampton plans to cut number of departments in half, offer early retirement

The Town police provide a necessary sevice that is unique in itself. The work of a police officer is dangerous an demanding, yes even in East Hampton, the public can only see the salary and not what officers do on a daily basis. The point is stop bashing the Police Dept, you cannot put a price tag on the services provided, and lets not forget this is an open competive civil service position open to all." Mar 31, 10 1:34 PM

Southampton Town negotiations with PBA advance

I think you are confused, SCPD officers who work midnights work 10 hour shifts, 10 pm to 8 am, 4 days on and then 4 days off, other officers work day shifts, 7 to 3 one week and afternoons the next, 3 to 11, 5 days on with 2 days off, then 5 days on with 3 days off, so on and so forth. " Apr 12, 10 10:09 PM

12 hour shifts typically benefit everybody, it increases staffing levels at any given time, thus resulting in less overtime costs. Officers who work 12 hour shifts work the same amount of hours per year, however with less days to appear. Many currently work this schedule, such as the NYS Troopers, Nassau PD, and most village agencies in Nassau County, furthermore most hospitals due 12 hour shifts, including Southampton Hospital. The schedules of most east end police agencies is inadequet and physically exausting, and makes no sense, it is time for a change." Apr 12, 10 10:23 PM

Officers will typically try to increase overtime during these years, such as taking on special detail assignments or filling in when staffing is low, not racketeering by any means,you can not put a price on the services provided, be proud of the men and women who serve and protect, stop the ridicule." Apr 12, 10 10:31 PM

Sorry to inform you, but all the doctors and nurses at Southampton hospital work 12 hour shifts, they seem to be doing a fine job with no problems, go back to bed." Apr 12, 10 10:34 PM

Sergeant Schucht retires from Southampton Village Police Department

What is the problem with working a second job? If working a second job does not effect an officers official duties it is not a problem by any means, people need to mind their own business and stop concerning themselves with an officers secondary employment. I ask you this question , If you had the opportunity to make more money wouldn't you?" Apr 23, 10 9:38 AM

This women should of been put behind bars a long time ago, or should we wait for another victim? Ms Depersia should be punished to the fullest extent the law allows. " Aug 9, 11 7:48 PM

Repeat DWI Offender Avoids Jail Time

Absolutely obsurd. This is Ms. Depersia's third arest for DWI, and now she injured persons as a result. What is this world coming too? Strict enforcement and punishment needs to be in place to prevent people like this from committing these crimes, community service is a joke. I cant even imagine the anger that the victims are feeling." Dec 14, 11 3:43 PM

I have an idea, why don't when people decide to enter and settle in this country they learn the native language, only in America would this fly.I believe in Latin American countries Spanish is the native language right? If I moved there it would be in my best interest to learn it." Jan 15, 13 6:25 PM
