Lets find this person already and baseball bat his head.

can you find out if they traced the lic plate to its owner? so many incidents lately....
Team Dawg May 29, 2013 at 09:28 am
This scenario occurs far too often all over LI. So much so that we decided to author one of ourRead More children's books on the subject. Fortunately, the vast majority of these incidents are handled and reported properly. It is a reminder , however , to take the time to remind our children of the few common sense things to do if this were to happen to them.

I have to laugh, the sprinklers are ON at the football field @ MAMS Are they kidding, come on MORERead More TAX DOLLARS going down the drain.
Concerned Parent May 20, 2013 at 11:15 am
Dear Board of Education; You are only doing an analysis to our fields NOW that a Superintendent isRead More starting on July 1st? And you admit these concerns have been coming up at many of your prior meetings! You should be ashamed of yourselves. This like telling a student to study the night before the SAT's and letting them skip 9th, 10th and 11th grade. You have not educated yourselves on the topic of safe fields, cared enough to tour the fields, or have kept our schools as competitive as our neighbors. Your letter is embarrassing! GIVE US ANSWERS at the next meeting! We can only hope that the new Superintendent has vision for our future student-athletes and that Board members who have vision for the future will come forward and speak out and make changes.

Board of Ed: Imagine if we as homeowners maintained our properties in the manner in which youRead More maintain our school district properties, it would bring down the property values in our entire community. I've been asking myself, why then do we accept this from our school district? We are charged an exorbitant amount of school taxes by you, yet we continue to accept mediocrity from you on so many levels. The kids and the community must come first, we've paid long enough. It's time to give back to the taxpayer and I DON'T mean in the way of an appropriated fund balance. Give back the funds you've already collected from us by upgrading the fields, it needs to be done, it's time!

Who in god's name would go to a supermarket when we have Peapod?? Supermarket's are out in theRead More dangerous real world, it's so much easier to just have someone deliver my groceries to my nice cozy south merrick home, and have my live-in maid put them away for me

Our children are taught about stranger danger. The child did the right thing. Not all contactsRead More will involve kidnapping, but molestation is a lot more common. And years ago when I was growing up, no one warned us. If you have to be so politically correct so as not to give a description of someone, then our children & society will be in real danger.
Helene June 3, 2013 at 09:38 am
It is not about being politically correct or not, it's about parenting. I still see children walkingRead More all by themselves to school early morning and afternoon. Why can't we teach our children to walk with someone? and then, we go ahead and complain about them being approached. HAVE YOUR CHILD WALK WITH A FRIEND, PERIOD. Additionally teach your children (teen) to look both sides before crossing, mostly if they are going to text and cross!

They were only shells. Stop the insanity. The police were called? Really?
Helene May 16, 2013 at 02:18 pm
Those are shells, not ammunition. My grandma used to keep on her mantle WWII shells, and not one ofRead More us got hurt! Museums display them, should we start to raid their premises?
Greg Bashaw May 19, 2013 at 09:18 am
So the Insanity continues! They were shells!!! and they called police! There are things that goRead More on in the schools, like the mistreatment of the kids, who calls the cops then???? Unreal!

ANOTHER LOCKDOWN because of dogs?! Isnt this a little EXTREME?! We are becoming hostages of ourRead More fears! Why do we not lockdown the schools and report the SERIOUS problems that go on IN the schools..
Helene May 16, 2013 at 02:21 pm
and here again, they thought they were pit bulls so right away everyone is shaking with fears. MyRead More Cavalier King Charles will maul you before those pit bulls get to you, lol
Steven Ferraro May 11, 2013 at 07:00 am
Any of these students get a license plate number. It would be easier for police to track down thisRead More individual .
Team Dawg May 12, 2013 at 08:09 pm
This scenario is occurring with frightening frequency in many of our districts here on L.I. So muchRead More so that we at Team Dawg have authored one of our children's books on this situation in hopes of helping to teach our children what to do in a case such as this. Thankfully the vast majority of these cases end without incident and the follow through by authorities has been great. As stated above, please take a moment to speak to your children about how to keep safe.

Mangano hasn't hired a single police officer since he took office. Who is he kidding? Smoke andRead More mirrors!
Joey Mon April 29, 2013 at 04:42 pm
Good thing Mangano wants to close the 1st Precinct, right?
ed April 30, 2013 at 10:39 am
All the pct closures have failed like everything else he has done.

A friend's daughter a month ago experienced the same interaction in Bellmore. Who ever this personRead More is, is targeting children in this age group and is familiar with the area. Please be careful.
Rob Tannenbaum April 23, 2013 at 08:03 am
Time to install video cameras everywhere?
Ralph Maffetone April 29, 2013 at 08:35 am
A male???? Really? That narrows it down to a couple of billion people. Don't you think you shouldRead More give a real description.
Greg Bashaw April 17, 2013 at 12:18 pm
Safe practices SHOULD be enforced....... but hysterically drawing the wrong conclusions (with theRead More evidence above) is also a problem to our community.
Team Dawg April 21, 2013 at 06:41 pm
This scenario is what prompted team Dawg to publish one of it's children's books on what to do inRead More such a circumstance. We have distributed our book in many districts as this seems to happen far too often, this year more than ever. Thankfully the children acted appropriately but it does serve as a reminder that it is never a bad idea to remind our children on how to act to keep themselves safe.
FedUpRealist April 12, 2013 at 05:17 pm
In this day and age of liberal protection for criminals, why would ANY parent allow their kid OF ANYRead More AGE to walk alone anywhere/anytime? Maybe the ACLU can assign a chaperone to each of the sex offenders they say deserve to rejoin & assimilate back into society.
