    Suffolk County Sheriff Vincent DeMarco took to the airwaves Sunday to bash President Obama’s immigration policies — blaming him for the recent rash of murders linked to MS-13 gang activities across Long island — while lauding U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ recent visit to address local law enforcement on the same topic. “In the community of Brentwood, where there is a big El Salvadoran population, we have had over the last nine months or so 11 bodies turned [sic] up,” Sheriff DeMarco told John Catsimatidis during an early morning interview on “The Cats Roundtable.” The victims, many of whom were...

    A Long Island federal jury rewarded Nancy Genovese, 58, a mother of three, $1.12 million in compensatory damages after being arrested in 2009 for attempting to photograph a helicopter at a Air National Guard base in the Hamptons.

From The New York Post: Southhampton cops searched her and found a legally owned rifle that she was transporting from a nearby rifle range. She contends a deputy sheriff arrived on the scene later and said to her, “I bet...

    Although much attention was focused on the elections on Tuesday of decidedly left-of-center Democrats in Boston and New York City, little reported was the major gain of Republicans in two Northeastern states long considered "no man's land" for the GOP. Republicans took considerable new ground in contests for city halls and county offices in New York and Connecticut. In New York, Republicans re-elected county executives in Westchester and Nassau Counties, captured the mayoralty in Binghamton and a majority of the county legislature in Erie County for the first time since 1977, and won a special election for the state Assembly...

    In between bowls of chicken poodle soup and deciding to provide air cover for al-Qaeda in Syria, our Dear Leader, Barack Hussein Obama, found time to meet with mayors from our crumbling major cities. From Justin Sink of The Hill: *** "President Obama told a collection of big-city mayors Tuesday at the White House that he would continue to use executive actions to combat gun violence plaguing major cities.

    The late Sen. Ted Kennedy arranged to "rent" a brothel for a night while on a visit to Chile and other Latin American countries decades ago, according to a 1961 State Department memo obtained and published by the watchdog group Judicial Watch. Judicial Watch released several documents said to be from Kennedy's FBI file. The group said it obtained a cleaner copy of the State Department memo after a mostly redacted version was made public earlier. The Dec. 28, 1961, memo described a tour of several Latin American countries Kennedy made while he was an assistant prosecutor with Suffolk County,...

    Federal authorities have opened an investigation into allegations of “discriminatory policing” by the Suffolk County Police Department over how officers responded to reports of crimes against Latinos, a Justice Department spokesman said Monday. Latino residents and their advocates have accused the police in that Long Island county of systematically failing to fully investigate allegations of assaults on Latinos. After the highly publicized stabbing death of an Ecuadorean immigrant last November — prosecutors said that his attackers were driven by prejudice against Latinos — residents stepped forward with accounts of other attacks they believed were racially motivated. Some of those cases...

    HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. — A recent day in May began in crisis mode for Steve Levy, the Suffolk County executive, over an allegation that a police crackdown on unlicensed drivers amounted to the ethnic profiling of illegal immigrants.Soon, he was preparing a response to accusations by 30 state legislators, fellow Democrats all, that his policies in this Long Island county of 1.4 million “instigate divisiveness, hatred and intolerant behavior toward immigrants.” By 2 p.m., Mr. Levy seemed relieved to turn from “the whole illegal immigration thing,” as he calls it, to a topic confined to his 631 area code: a health...

But an anti-war activist group has accused police of trying to "smear" their reputation by linking the group with the convicted radical who terrorized New England with a series of bombings in the 1970s. New York City police say Richard J. Picariello, 55, is among 50 activists whose criminal histories will earn them extra attention next week....

    ALBANY - Nearly 25 years after he was allegedly molested as a teenager by local defrocked priest Dozia Wilson, 38-year-old Joseph Woodward finally got the chance to tell his painful story of abuse to prosecutors and law enforcement officials in Massachusetts. "It was like having a 100-pound weight taken off my back to finally have officials interested in my situation and in carefully discerning the facts," said Woodward, befriended by Wilson when he was 14 in 1980 at St. Ann's Church in Fort Ann [NY].

    NEW YORK, Aug 07, 2002 (AP Online via COMTEX) -- Lawmakers in a Long Island county approved a ban on the mass release of balloons after schoolchildren expressed concern for wildlife. The bill, which passed 15-1 Tuesday, applies to releases of more than 24 balloons and sets fines starting at $500. The Suffolk County executive said he would decided whether to sign it after a public hearing later this month. "I think the biggest lesson they learned is that they can make a difference," said teacher Robyn Siegelman, whose third-graders lobbied for the ban as an Earth Day project. "They...
