For real?! Maybe the home and vehicle thefts in the local area are in direct response to the "high" profits that these drug runners were making off of the locals on Long Island!! These wanna-be thugs are sickening! Its only getting worse! its become a culture! I can't imagine selling drugs to my friends, or even pushing these drugs ... If someone can proudly carry the responsibility for supplying drugs to their "friends" they are truly scum! Hit them with the book, before someone catches one of these wanna-be "G's" in their home on a money "re-up"!! Living on long island has become a liability, thus, less of a privlidge!! which we, the tax payers are getting tired of the lawlessness! Someone, or something is responsible. Perhaps the "high" taxes and the low income are a problem? However,,,,,These simple minded crime worshipers should not be let off the hook that easy. Scarface the movie has an end! Check it out kids! Tony doesn't remain top dog! He gets BLASTED! ! these are the days to rejoice! did someone say home land security?? Hmm!!
