I was told by the Judge I'm not allowed to beat other people's kids anymore so I let the cops take care of it. Pass a law that allows assault with cause that makes the person immune to frivolous prosecution by the parents and you will see everyone's kids straighten out quickly.

A neighborhood watch is a great idea and has been in the papers lately due to all the crimes going on in Nassau and suffolk counties. Massapequa and massapequa park should be broken down into area's like Nassau shores,Baltimore shores,crown village, Arlen oaks.these areas should be patrolled by concerned residents of those area's in shifts. We do have the highest number of Nypd officers who reside in massapequa and massapequa park who do have a clue as to what real police work is. City cops call this area east cupcake for a reason, it is and should not be neglected by the officers who patrol it.As far as the NYC inspector who just took over the top cop job in Nassau, he is good guy and a cops cop and also lives in the area. He was a Nypd chief, not a inspector.

Maybe you should face the facts, the NC police Department is not doing a good job....do you think they are? I have respect for police officers who do their jobs, not officers who answer a phone and act like you are bothering them....real hard job.I know guys in Nassau, and trust me they are not busy in the 7th.
