Anna Kovarick sold heroin in between picking up and dropping off kids at school, officials say.

Wow Pat that has to be the most ignorant statement. Kids are dropping like flies, houses are beingRead More robbed and it goes on and on and on. FYI, the Drug Cartel has targeted Long Island even more so now because the DEA has finally cracked down on oxy pills. Watch this video and then tell me you can justify your statement:http://www.newsday.com/long-island/colombian-mexican-cartels-drive-li-heroin-scourge-1.7092806

The following comments are not meant to be construed as being an advocate for teen /under agedRead More drinking, just a personal observation: 1-When I was in HS in the 70s kids aged 13-18 were drinking in their own homes or in parks while parents were out for the eve or weekend. Nothing has changed much there, IMO. 2- my mid + 20 something kids have told me stories of parties in HS where the parents were not only home, but would buy beer & hard liquor (multiple flavored vodkas) for huge parties for their kids & their friends. They would sometimes party with the under aged teens as well. ( not one of my kids were "allowed" to drink before 21 yrs old. Nor in my home, nor at family functions. I wasn't with them every moment of the day to enforce this.) This is nothing new & if you think it is you are delusional. There are good & bad parenting styles. 3- I was once shown Facebook pictures of a 16 yr old local boy loading a few cases of beer onto a party bus for Jr Prom, using a dolly, so tell me that the bus driver was unaware. Perhaps stiffer penalties are needed for the bus drivers, to include the bus company and check ladies purses for drugs & booze smuggled in. Again, some parents are real a------- when it comes to this but some of us are responsible and teach their kids hoping & praying that they do the right thing despite peer pressure. 4- all of my children use taxi service, designated drivers or the train when they wish to drink legally (mid to upper 20s). They were taught at an early age never to get into a car with anyone they felt may have been impaired and so far have called me on 2 occasions to come get them at 2 or 3 am when this was so. God willing they will stay safe. Parents are the first line of defense, but stiffer laws are needed for bus companies & idiot parents who think it's a right of passage. Talk to your local elected officials!

They [not all but some] pull people over for bullshit and pull the power trip on innocent individuals who truly made mistakes or non-threatening/harmful offenses. But where the hell are they when the real risks are on the road??? How about they keep their patrols going for the crappy drivers EVERYDAY, and not just some appointed safety weeks.

Back in the Day one of my sons begged to go on a trip to Great Adventure that was non sanctioned byRead More our High School. I sad fine and agreed to drive him to the pickup point. I don't think it was unexpected when I said "let me say hi to some of your friends" who had already boarded the bus. I was not surprised to see that the coolers on the bus had a greater variety of alcoholic beverages than I could have ever have hoped to accumulate in my liquor/beer cabinet. Not a word from my son as we walked back to my car. Was it my job in that situation to call the cops?

It isn't cheap to rent a coach bus and I have to believe parents put up the money for this. The parents should be held accountable first if they paid for it and not accompanying the children. Parents should also be held more accountable for the actions of children 21 and younger. Many people bring children into this world and assume no responsibility, this must change.

Archie Bunker- I think you need to take a refresher math course. They wanted to sell the stock inRead More 2010, and contacted the police in 2011. Not sure how your math turned that into "2 years to report it" Taking into account that different years can be as little as one day apart, and I'm sure they spent some time waiting for the nonexistent check to arrive, and trying to get in touch with him. So the only remarkable thing about that is your math skills, or lack of.

First of all you can go out to dinner and have 2 glasses of wine and go home, if you get pulled over, you are leagally drunk. That doesnt necessarily mean that your uncaple of driving. YES some people make the mistake of driving when they really shouldn't. That doesnt make them a bad person or mean that they deserve to be slandered. You are only going by what the reporter has given you, which they are paid for giving you a juicy story. I can PROMISE you that he isnt getting away with a slap on the wrist. He is facing MANY surgeries and months of rehab. The first person that is perfect, please cast the first stone!! Noone is perfect and people make mistakes. That doesn't mean you can pass such a hard judgment on him! He has plenty of things on his plate whithout having your uneducated judgements about him! He has dedicated his life to serving his country. Why should he defend you, when you are so quick to crucify him?!?!?

John April 4, 2014 at 09:12 pm
@Susan Yes I can fill in gaps and NEW STUFF going on in the Chris Boutin case very well for you. IfRead More anyone cares has been following his case (hearings, motions, bail etc) very easily done on webcrims they would be up to date, but it appears most have not so i will bring everyone up to speed. Christopher was picked up and charges with 3 counts of a controlled sale ( Heroin ) from his driveway to alleged undercover police. Chances are these undercover police they speak of was simply a customer who got pulled over leaving the home of MR Boutin as police watched, They was given two Options. Go to jail or work with them to take down MR Boutin with hard evidence they needed and be there RAT they needed or as i will continue to reefer to him as there (CI) Aka confidential informant. Chris was booked with a 2 misdemeanor charges of possession and 3 counts of Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance 3rd Degree schedule 1 dangerous drug. The Judge set his bail at 20k cash or 40K bond. He remained in custody. His next hearing the Judge ordered his bail set to 40k cash or 40k bond, He remained in custody. Around march 5th while Chris was still in police custody/county jail a NEW 4th felony charge, Possession of a schedule 1 dangerous drug with intent to sell and a judge ordered his bail set to 50k cash, 50k bond. It also mention's a Grand Jury in his webcrims report a more then once. From looking over the fact's in this one would come to believe another Agency that was not present during the arrest, possibly the DEA or DRUG TASK FORCE had pending charges of a past sale of heroin since new charges were added on while in custody during one of his court dates. It would also appear buy the mention of a grand jury that Chris has not accepted or most likely the prosecutor has not yet offered a plea bargain for a lighter sentence. It's extremely possible since another felony charge was added there could be more charges on-going that he does not know about yet, and this is why no plea-agreements have been made. I looked up his past criminal history in the state of NY to see if this was his first offense or not. It shows a misdemeanor arrest of Paraphernalia possession of Hypodermic syringes or needles from a few years back but does not show charges if there was any or if the case was thrown out. It looks like he is facing 8 to 15 years upstate NY, and with good behavior will be out in 5 or 6. PS as in the Boutin Case, Confidential Informant's (who only have to testify in a trial, but there name will appear on Chris's paperwork for him to see eventually ) undercover police usually is slang for it was a busted customer who used a police issued video and voice recording device placed in the car to do 3 or 4 buys. They will not tell the public, This way other dealer's do not read about all the busted customers used to put charges on drug dealers. A way to keep them out of the Loop and in the dark so to say. The same reason the words phone tap are not often printed in articles. So they think they don't use them around here. The word's you do not hear somebody does not want you to hear for a reason, This way people have no idea it happens every day to make drug bust's or else cases wont hold up in court.. All Tools, Tricks, lies and deceit used buy the police since the 70's.
John April 4, 2014 at 09:12 pm
My all time favorite. Police arrest 2 best friends for what-ever the case might be, Then put eachRead More friend in separate rooms telling one friend his buddy is talking up a storm about him, confessed its him, or about to tell us everything, So now is his last chance to do the right thing and be the only one out of two who are going home tonight when that door close's behind us, if not your friend will be the one to leave. So the one friend being pressured hard knows the game's police play so he sits there saying to himself over and over my best friend would never rat me out or Lie and say it was me (when hes not guilty). Eventually hours and hours later your starving and threw one way glass they ask your friend to move rooms and make sure he sees his best friend walk buy eating a bag of McDonald's laughing as the cops tell him a joke about someone else there. So he gets angry and when the police come back in he talks and tells all about his friend. They Won. Meanwhile all they did was tell his friend that they both are not in any trouble and each are allowed diner while they process them before both go home, and offer to pick him up some food when there done eating at McDonald's so his buddy was hungry and all he did was say yes. Meanwhile they just got his best friend to talk with this simple $6 bag of fast food diversion.

THE INCIDENTS OF SEXUAL ABUSE AND INAPPROPRIATE CONTACT WITH STUDENTS IN SCHOOLS ON LONG ISLAND ISRead More RISING. IN THE PAST FIFTEEN MONTHS THERE HAVE BEEN ELEVEN ARRESTS OF TEACHERS ACCUSED OF SEXUAL ABUSE. HOW MANY OTHER INCIDENTS HAVE OCCURRED, THAT CHILDREN ARE AFRAID TO REPORT?
