Oddone trial begins; opening statements heard Monday

I am writing on here as a friend of Tony's. It is no question in my mind that Andrew Reister is a great person and my deepest sympathy's go out to his family. It seems a little strange how the DA says that Mr. Reister accidently slipped and fell into tony which knocked him off the table but yet the defense attorney said he pushed Tony. Seems a little strange that out of nowhere he accidently tripped. I am not a bouncer but if a patron dancing on a table was that severe of a thing to be happening (even though it had been going on for about fifteen to twenty minutes prior) then why wouldnt a bouncer have the dj turn off the music and make an announcement instead of going over to one individual and "accidently slipping" into him and starting a fight. It just doesnt add up. I honestly believe that Tony was pushed off a bar and being that he saw a man who outweighed him by 100 lbs. not wearing and staff attire he thought this man was trying to hurt him and he was scared for his life. I am not downplaying the fact that this is a total tragedy but i believe that it is a tragic accident that has affected many people besides the Riester family. Once again my thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Reister family and I just pray that Tony recieves a fair trial." Oct 20, 09 4:31 PM

Witness recounts fatal struggle in Southampton bar

I cant believe that you people are saying that tony was the same size as reister thats absurd. I can also promise you that tony was not taking any steroids. he is 6 ft 175 lbs. he was scared for his life when pushed off a table by a much larger man. its a terrible tragedy all around."

good work FOTO" Oct 23, 09 3:14 PM

actually i do have high standards for my friends and tony has always gone out of his way for his friends and been nothing but a pleasure to hang out with. to BB he didnt just grab a guy around his neck when asked to get down from the table. if u have been in court or read anything about what happened he was pushed off a table by a bigger man not wearing any staff shirt. The end result is a terrible tradegy but from someone that has known Tony for a few years i promise his intentions were never murder. he may have wised off but when he was pushed off a table and found himself in a scuffle with a man who outwieghed him by nearly a hundred lbs he was scared for his life. Everyone is so quick to assume things by hearing one side of a story and so quick to judge people. Please if you dont know Tony dont try to judge him. The whole truth will come out in the trial. I am not saying that he did nothing wrong but it was never his intention to kill mr. reister who seems to be a great person and my deepest sympathys go out to his family in this very difficult time" Oct 24, 09 10:45 PM

Oddone sentenced to 22 years in prison

Very sad. Regardless of any of your opinions tony was a great friend. Very odd how there were comments made about the public house not doing anything for mrs reister and how she is only receiveing 1/3 of his pay when she should get 3/4? Im not sure how that has anything to do with the sentencing of oddone which is what we were there for. NEVER JUDGE A MAN UNTIL YOU WALK A MILE IN HIS SHOES. This trial should have never been in suffolk county from the beginning and I believe this kid got a raw deal. Im sure most of you wont appreciate that but frankly I dont care. A lot of two-faced people throughout this trial. God be with Anthony Oddone during this difficult time" Apr 15, 10 7:23 AM
