These politicians will say what they want you to hear, along with the town. They need to take betterRead More care of their employees when a tragedy like this occurs. The town supervisors where no where to be found for this family. No immediate phone calls, no knock on the doors, they didn't even have the flag in the yard Steve worked in at half mast. He provided for a family, has three beautiful daughter and there is nothing to show from his time on his job. Disappointed and saddened by the town of Oyster Bay!

Yesterday, Nassau County paid farewell to one of its finest. By all accounts, Highway PatrolmanRead More Joseph Olivieri was a cop's cop who made his family, his friends and his beloved department proud. All to often in today's fast past world we loose sight of the dedicated, tireless and vigilant service preformed by Nassau County's Finest. All to often the inherent dangers of the job surface and there are times when even one of the Finest falls. Let us remember this good mans sacrifice and for his commitment to put the safety and security of others first. Rest in peace Officer Olivieri. May God Bless you and provide comfort to all those suffering by your passing.

Yes this absolutely REEKS of politics and cover up. Did the driver of the Cadillac escalade give aRead More blood sample?? Why not?? They killed a police officer after all. Oh wait, I forgot, there was someone in the vicinity with a BAC of .09 An easy target for political gain. An easy scapegoat to get the connected Cadillac driver off the hook. Maybe a fundraiser for mr Ryan's defense is in order. We can't allow witch hunters to prevail. Not in the 21st century. And a special investigation should be conducted to determine why the Cadillac Escalade is not being held accountable for their actions.

Don't you conspiracy theorists think that a cops kid (Mr.Ryan) would be the one avioidingRead More prosecution if all these scary theories you say are true???????? Did you miss that in the article?? I do agree--the Escalade should be looked into--but how do you know it wasn't???? Leave the law to the professionals. The lawyers make it entertaining enough. A police officer was killed performing his duties. I can promise you any and every avenue was checked and double checked, especially because of an officers death.
