Officer makes charges of favoritism in Westhampton Beach PBA

Hey resident, if what you ate saying is true about only getting put in the drug task force if you are a problem, that must mean that Nick fusco and bob nordman are problems as well. Because that both served with the task force. Maybe you are just upset that you weren't given the opportunity to go because they knew you couldn't be trusted near the evidence. Sniff Sniff buddy!"

Kabot DWI hearing kicks off, will resume Tuesday

I don't recall any mention of mcmanus and auberge anywhere? Where are u getting ur info Billy?, Billy Keahon maybe??" Jul 8, 10 9:35 PM

Kabot's pre-trial hearing will continue next week

It appears the stc is concerned about widespread police corruption. I really don't see that on the east end. The video systems that these police dept's have in their cars, whether it be the icop system, eyewitness, arbitrator, kustom signals, etc all pride themselves on the fact that the videos cannot be altered. This is a selling point because without it the videos would be worth nothing! Chiefs would not spend tens of thousands of dollars on camera equipment only to have it tossed in a preliminary hearing. As for the missing footage, it's true that the officers may have turned off the video for a period o time, but mr keahon has made no accusations as to what occured during that time, his only play is to make a big deal about the fact that it was shut off, not About the officers actions while it was off." Jul 16, 10 9:40 AM

Word on the streets is that her refusal to submit to the pre screen breat test is on video, along with her statements about drinking alcohol before driving. This is why keahon wants the video excluded from the case. Not because anything bad happened, beacuse it looks bad for his client. He is playingthe only angle he has, a conspiracy theory." Jul 19, 10 2:44 PM

pbr, You say the missing minutes were destroyed, as if they never happened. There were atleast three people present during the missing minutes that we know of, the arresting officers and the defendant. All of whom have yet to support your case of impropriety on the part of the police during the missing footage. I agree w karma and frank that until there is an accusation of wrongdoing this whole conversation is a smoke screen designed to hide the real facts of the case. let the jury view the video and let keahon argue his points, let's have the officers state why they did what they did and let a jury of her peers decide!

Riverside Man Dies Hours After Being Shot Outside Hampton Bays Nightclub

I guess the SH press doesn't have a relationship wih the oners of this bar, because this is sure to be front page news. On the other hand, the melee at the boardy barn on the 40th anniversary party a few weeks ago, was not mentioned. There were cops from all over the east end there and half the place got pepper sprayed, but no article? seems a little suspect to me" Oct 29, 10 1:51 PM

Kabot Says District Attorney Should Be Ashamed

"Highhatsize" appears to equal low IQ. I am interested in how you say the "breathalyzer" results can be easily manipulated. I believe you said it was a "piece of cake" That is so far from the turth, that your comments only embarass yourself and anyone else who listens to them. Please do not attempt to speak intelligently about something you obviously now nothing about." Nov 27, 10 6:53 PM

Just for the record, "breathalyzer" instruments have not been in use since the mid to early 1990's. The correct instrument is an intoxilizer 5000. Also your comment that a roadside breath test does not count is incorrect. Pre-screen breath tests as they are called are now admissible in court. A positive alcohol result on a "PBT", or a REFUSAL TO SUBMIT TO A "PBT" gives an officer probable cause to make an arrest for suspicion of dui or dwi. Search NYS Vehicle and Traffic law section 1194-1b. " Nov 28, 10 11:09 AM

HH: You are so off base on this. You are obviously a pompus know it all who has over 500 comments on this site who tries to act as if they are the authority on every subject that is discussed. I will tell you this, That since january of 2010, field breath tests have been admissible in Suffolk county courts, that means from supreme court to all towns and village courts. The district attorney must prove that the police officer who administered the test followed proper procedures in administering the test (which i am not going to get into on this forum as it could jeapordize succesful prosecution of future dwi cases) and that the instrument was calibrated to the manufactures specifications by a qualified technician. In addition section 1194 1b of the vtl is the basis for arrest based on intoxication and requires a motorist to submit to a pre screen breath test or be arrested. I'm sure that there are more than a few people who are reading this commentary who have refused the pre screen and were arrested for dwi. That is the way it goes." Nov 28, 10 5:54 PM

Once again you are wrong. The whole reason for push to have the field breath test admisible was because so many people were refusing the chemical test at the police station. This allows the judge or jury to hear the bac of he subject at the time of arrest. This has led to many convictions in the surrounding town and villag courts. Also you say the second to fourth tests, what exactly do you mean?, or did you make that up as well?? " Nov 29, 10 3:25 PM

A person who submits to a pre screen breath test is under no obligation to submit to a breath test at the station. More likely than not, a person refuses at the station after being read the chemical test warnings, which are outlined in section 1194 of the vtehicle and traffic law. A person has the right to submit to a chemical test at the station house if they so wish. A breath test is offered in alcohol cases and either blood, or urine in drug cases. Once again you say the field breth test is uneliable. I say t is not. The test is accurate if it was administered properly, the police officer was trained and the instrument was calibrated. The result of said test will be admissible in court provided that the district attorney can lay all of the ground work to prove these three things. The reliability of the evidence, as with a confession or oral statements is subject to cross examination, and preliminary herings as to the reliability of said evidence.
As to the stpd, dont know much about them, other tha you apparently don't like them much as yu seem to take shots at those who put their lives on the line to protect you any chance you get. Whats with that??" Nov 29, 10 9:16 PM

Quogue Village Police Chief Collapses At Town Event

G- After reading your mis-informed and stupid comment i took the time to review all of your other comments on this site, and they are as ridiculous as this one. It must be such a thrill to bad mouth people and their families without fear of retribution because of the anonymous nature of this site. You must have been a customer of the Quogue PD to harbor such resentment and ill-will towards he people who keep you safe. U sir, are a clown." Jan 22, 11 12:05 PM

That was the audio from the mdt (computer) computer in the police car. You have no clue what u are talking about." Feb 2, 11 9:02 PM

HH- While I dont agree with you most of the time, I do believe that you have made some intelligent points on other blogs on ths site. On this one, I am completely shocked. You criticize the cops in Southampton for making DWI arrests. This sir, is their job. DWI is a violent crime during which people are killed each and every day n this country. You disgust me, as a person who has had family members and friends killed and injured due to other people's negligence I am shocked at your comments. Visit MADD.ORG, maybe you will have a new opinion." Feb 2, 11 9:09 PM

No plea bargains for dwi refusals, thats why. The DA could care less about Slinda Labot, she did this to herself, not she is paying the price, even if she is found not guity, I assure you that Billy Keahon is not working for free. I heard he gets about 500 per hour. Where is HHS on his salary??" Feb 3, 11 10:21 AM

Jury Verdict In Kabot Case: Not Guilty Of DWI

Alll this talk of a conspiracy still does not make her drive the way she did, does not make her admit to having drank wine at a party or gve her the right to refuse a breath test. If she was not drunk or better yet was not worried about her blood alcohol level, she would have taken the breath test and went home.

FYI- A glass of wine as far as alcohol i concerned is considered to be 4 ounces. 4 ounces of wine, a 12 oz beer (6% alcohol) and a 1 1/4 ounce shot of 80 proof liquor all equal roughly .02% bac each hour.
The normal glass of wine served at a restaurant is 8-10 ounces. This would equal 4-5 "drinks" and a bac of .08-.11. If drank over an hour time period, this would make the result slightly higher, close to a .12% bac.

If anything please remember this when you go out to dinner, 4 oz of wine is not alot in the large glasses that these restaurants serve." Feb 3, 11 8:24 PM

Would any of you feel comfortable with Linda on tht Night driving down your street while your kids were out playing?? I think not. She was dwi! Her refusal to submit to the breath test shows that she knew that she was guilty, if she was comfortable and knew that she was fine she would have avoided this whole mess by taking the test. Either way, her political life is shot by the way that she acted and her attitude during the arrest. All of Keahon's razzle dazzle will not change that. I'm sure there are some hefty bills associated wih this that will need to be paid by her for many years to come. " Feb 4, 11 6:38 PM

I truly believe that had Linda been cooperative, admitted she was wrong and made a public apology, she would have gotten a plea deal, paid a 500 dollar fine and probably would have been re-elected. People are forgiving and would have admired her for admitting she made a mistake, because lord knows we all have." Feb 4, 11 6:40 PM

Great job Police Officer Florea! Showing restraint and professionalism during this most serious of incidents." Jul 20, 12 8:19 PM

Hh you go out an wrestle this nutcase down, and then see how much you would want to be paid to do the same. Some professions get paid for what they may have to do in an instant, not what they do all of the time. Your logic should then transfer to fdny firemen who are paid 100k and in certain places do very little to nothing at all. When we all know that after 9-11 they deserve every penny they earn. " Jul 22, 12 6:46 PM

You are absoutley right sir, you are ignorant, we do finally agree!" Jul 22, 12 11:27 PM

Most cops were or are currently still in the military, does that change your opinion? Are they now entitled to their pay and benefits? If you are not happy with your situation you could have taken the test like anyone had the opportunity to and then volunteered to work for 30 grand and donate the remainder of your pay to the community preservation fund." Jul 23, 12 11:54 AM

Police Make Arrest In Hampton Bays Bank Robbery

You are so wrong. You pay more for cable television than you do for the Sht police, look at your tax bill.
