Right there is what is wrong with the criminal justice system. This loser from Holbrook arrested twice in the same day, and I am sure is right back out there drinking and drugging it up. What a pathetic state we live in where this is allowed.

IMO it's economics....Arresting these lowlifes costs money & generates virtually nothing...Catching drivers for reggies, inspect, seatbelts, cel phones brings in a fortune...so that's where they focus....
ARCH STANTON April 04, 2013 at 04:02 AM
HEY MEL, DID YOU READ WHAT YOU WROTE? WHAT YOUR IMPLYING IS, THAT THE POLICE DON'T ARREST THE LOWLIFES AS YOU CALL THEM BECAUSE THEY DON'T GENERATE NOTHING. DID YOU TAKE THE TIME TO READ THE ARTICLES? THE POLICE DID THEIR JOB, BY GETTING A DRIVER OFF THE ROAD FOR DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED AND IMPAIRED BY DRUGS. SHE WAS ALSO ARRESTED EARLIER IN THE DAY FOR POSSESSION OF DRUGS. IF YOU TOOK THE TIME TO READ THE ABOVE ARTICLE, YOU WOULD HAVE READ THAT THE POLICE MADE SEVEN ARRESTS FOR LARCENY, DRUGS AND DWI'S. IF YOUR IGNORANT ENOUGH TO DRIVE AN AUTO THAT HAS NOT BEEN REGISTERED, INSPECTED OR YOU CHOSE NOT TO WEAR A SEATBELT AND CONTINUED TO USE A CELL PHONE WHILE DRIVING, SHOWS A LACK OF COMMON SENSE ON YOUR PART AND YES YOU DESERVE TO GET A TICKET.

Hey Arch...you wanna turn off that caps lock?...Your SCREAMING is giving me a headache.... I a) Read the article completely....b) Read what I wrote....& c) aren't "implying", I'm flat out saying "no money, no desire to bust 'em:..... Agreed that getting drunk/impaired drivers off the road is crucial, but so is busting the drug using/drug dealing/menacing malcontents hanging on the corners (NOT in vehicles) THAT requires that the officers get out of their cars and walk a beat... Or at least, park the cars and sit at those trouble areas to deter these lowlifes... I read ALL of the police blotter reports here and say that approx 85% of the arrests are DWI's and/or possession charges after being stopped (in a car!).... I am also IN the area, and I see first hand how the "shooting fish in a barrel" tactics are used while the dealers are standing conducting biz a block away.... My recently expired reggie isn't a threat to anyone (cept the DMV)...doesn't supply drugs/steal from individuals or shops...menace or turn hardworking people's neighborhoods into ghettos....
ARCH STANTON April 04, 2013 at 05:27 PM
HEY MEL, YOUR COMMENTS DON'T MAKE SENSE. OBVIOUSLY YOU DON'T FOLLOW THE PATCH IN ALL THE LOCAL AREAS. THE POLICE ARE DOING THEIR JOBS, UNFORTUNATELY THERE AREN'T ENOUGH OF THEM TO GO AROUND AND ASSIGN THEM TO FOOT POSTS AND MAN CARS AT THE SAME TIME. DRUG DEALERS, BUYERS AND SELLERS ARE BEING ARRESTED EVERY DAY IN SUFFOLK COUNTY. PLUS THE POLICE DEAL WITH BURGLARIES, ROBBERIES, MURDERS AND AUTO ACCIDENTS JUST TO NAME A FEW. THEY CAN'T BE EVERYWHERE. YOU CLAIM 85% OF ARRESTS ARE FOR DWI'S IS SO INACCURATE THAT IT IS MISLEADING. I WISH IT WERE TRUE, JUST TO GET DRUNKS OFF THE ROAD, BUT AGAIN THE POLICE CAN'T BE EVERYWHERE. IT'S OBVIOUS THAT YOU HAVE A VENDETTA TOWARDS THE POLICE FOR GETTING A TICKET WHILE YOU WERE EITHER PARKED OR DRIVING A VEHICLE THAT WAS UNREGISTERED, UNINSPECTED, NOT WEARING A SEATBELT OR USING A CELL PHONE. THEY ARE ALL VIOLATIONS OF THE LAW THAT MUST BE ADHERED TO. YOU MADE A MISTAKE ON ONE OR MORE OF THE ABOVE VIOLATIONS SO DEAL WITH IT AND OWN UP TO IT. DON'T BLAME THE POLICE FOR YOUR INCOMPETENCE IN NOT MAINTAINING YOUR MOTOR VEHICLE.

Listen Arch...TURN THE CAPS LOCK OFF! (it's the key labeled "caps lock" on your keyboard) and chill with the name calling, k?.... Is there any particular reason that you feel it's you place to attack me?....It's been a rough day for me so far, and I'm so wanting to just give it right back to you, but I refuse to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person!... The only vendetta I have is against the inertia...I have watched Upper Port (both sides of the track) go rapidly downhill (no pun intended, for those of you who "get it"...don't strain your brain Arch) in the past 8 years...I have watched, reported, complained, reported to all of the local authorities ,.,,heard their promises & rhetoric..ALL for NAUGHT!...It's just getting worse... What is going on is crime...and are, to use your words, "VIOLATIONS OF THE LAW THAT MUST BE ADHEARD TO." Ticketing/arresting for violence, drugs (usage & distribution), gambling, robbery/theft, public drunkenness/urination, lewd behavior, loitering etc deserves at least half of the attention...BUT, the return on manpower investment it's not worth it,..to jail them costs money (and adds to the overcrowded jails) and they don't have any money to pay fines...so they go in and out, just costing $$... cont...
Mels Ditties April 04, 2013 at 09:01 PM
On the flip side, fish in a barrel traps are extremely lucrative & minimal manpower....I don't have the stats (right now) but I would LUV to see what the ratio is on fines paid on both sides... Hence the reason for my frustration & hypothesis... Now, this inertia (<-obviously the "word for today") is killing a neighborhood...PEOPLE...If you have followed the articles & comments on this PJ Patch, you would see how badly these PEOPLE have been effected...They DESERVE better....The DESERVE the right to live without fear ..... I doubt anyone would be afraid to walk past my expired reggie or be in fear at the sight of me sans seatbelt..there is no threat to them....BUT see how many folks are comfortable at the train station, shopping at 7-11, Bravo or the rest of the stores in the area...How they justifiably worry about their homes when they are not there and worry about their safety in their homes when they are.... The priority has to go to the PEOPLE...but it doesn't because the money doesn't follow that path... That's as simple as I can make it...It is MY OPINION, based on observations & facts....You don't have to agreed with me, nor I with you, but let's just respect each others position...k? And seriously, TURN THE CAPS LOCK OFF!
Mels Ditties April 04, 2013 at 09:18 PM
Oh, and one more thing..... If I may be so bold as to offer a different perspective on your "INCOMPETENCE IN NOT MAINTAINING YOUR MOTOR VEHICLE" opinion?... These are tough times...many people are hurting economically...scrapping together the $$ for the basics (food, lodging, fuel) and sometimes they just do not have the money to register/inspect (or worse, repairs to pass inspect)....While I do not have any tickets, (jinx, jinx, jinx) I have been forced to let them lapse in order to keep the lights on (blsU607) and got 'em legal as soon as I had the funds....Adding a ticket, can totally break the bank... So it's just not so cut & dry "incompetence"....I'm just sayin'....
Mels Ditties April 04, 2013 at 09:21 PM
My apologies for being quite so verbose this evening.....but sometimes ya just gotta let it out....
ARCH STANTON April 04, 2013 at 10:19 PM
HEY MEL, WHEN YOU MAKE LUDICROUS COMMENTS AS YOU HAVE, YOU LEAVE YOURSELF OPEN FOR CRITICISM. WHEN YOU COMPLAIN THAT ALL THE POLICE DO IS ISSUE TICKETS TO BRING IN A FORTUNE, YOUR WORDS, IS RIDICULOUS. NO ONE DENIES WHAT IS HAPPENING IN PORT JEFF STATION IS ALSO OCCURRING IN PATCHOGUE, RIVERHEAD, HUNTINGTON ETC. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE POLITICANS ARE THE ONES RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS NOT THE POLICE. IT'S LIKE A REVOLVING DOOR. THEY GET ARRESTED AND ARE RELEASED THE SAME DAY ON AN APPEARENCE TICKET, DEPENDING ON THE SEVERITY OF THE CRIME OF COURSE. YOU MADE A COMMENT ABOUT THE RETURN ON MANPOWER INVESTMENTS (POLICE) AND THE COST OF RUNNING AND MAINTAINING OVERCROWDED JAILS, BY STATING IT'S JUST NOT WORTH IT. THEN YOU WONDER WHY I FIND YOUR COMMENTS ABSURD. YOU CAN'T HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO.
ARCH STANTON April 04, 2013 at 10:41 PM
HEY MEL, I HAVE ONE MORE COMMENT ON YOUR BEING UNABLE TO MAINTAIN YOUR RESPONSIBILITY IN KEEPING YOUR CAR REGISTERED, INSPECTED AND I'M ASSUMING INSURED. YOU ENDANGER THE LIVES OF OTHERS EVERYTIME YOU ENTER THAT VEHICLE NOT KNOWING WHETHER YOUR BRAKES OR ANY OTHER PART OF THAT AUTO MAY MALFUNCTION AT ANYTIME CAUSING YOU TO HAVE AN ACCIDENT. THAT IS WHY THE STATE REQUIRES YOU TO HAVE YOUR VEHICLE INSPECTED ONCE A YEAR, REGISTERED EVERY TWO YEARS AND INSURED 365 DAYS A YEAR. I DO HOPE THAT YOU HAVE NEVER LET YOUR INSURANCE LAPSE. NO ONE IS SAYING THAT TIMES HAVE NOT BEEN ROUGH FOR THE PAST DECADE, BUT WHEN YOU OWN A VEHICLE, COMES RESPONSIBILITY.

Wow people, take a deep freakin breath and chill out
Mels Ditties April 08, 2013 at 11:39 PM
What I SAID was that it is more lucrative for the police to ticket motorists, requiring less manpower & more return in fines paid....vs....investigating/busting dealers, gang members, etc who go thru the revolving door...I didn't say it wasn't worth it, it certainly would be for all of us who have to live & work in these environments, I said that's why it is not a priority...With a new jail open, perhaps there will be more attention paid to these crimes...
Mels Ditties April 08, 2013 at 11:45 PM
PUHlease!...I don't drive some hoopty and I'm certainly NOT going to drive my vehicle in a state of disrepair, especially so bad that it's just going to go wildly out of control and wipe out unsuspecting drivers... Babble all your want but there is no way you are going to make the point that dealing drugs, robbing people, menacing is as dangerous as an expired registration... I am done with this argument, it seems you are either a policeman, family/friend/etc of a policeman and are arguing nonsense to justify their inability to fight crime and STOP the denigration of our town, as well as the other that you mentioned...
ARCH STANTON April 09, 2013 at 12:09 AM
HEY VERONICA, IF YOU HAVE AN INTELLECTUAL COMMENT TO CONTRIBUTE TO THIS DIALOGUE, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO JOIN IN ON THE ORGINIAL TOPIC.
Debbie April 09, 2013 at 01:10 AM
Arch- You must be a joy to live with.
ARCH STANTON April 09, 2013 at 03:19 PM
HEY DEB, SEE THAT IS THE PROBLEM. PEOPLE WANT TO COMMUNICATE ON HERE, BUT DON'T STAY ON TOPIC. THEY JUST RAMBLE ON ABOUT NONSENSE. BY THE WAY, I'VE HAD NO COMPLAINTS.
veronica April 10, 2013 at 08:37 PM
I'm just saying. Mels had the right to her opinion and you decided to take it upon yourself to call her an idiot. In my OPINION, she's not the idiot here.
ARCH STANTON April 10, 2013 at 11:15 PM
VERONICA, YOU IDENTIFY MELS AS HER TWICE, HOW WOULD YOU KNOW THAT? NO ONE SAID THAT HE OR SHE WASN'T ENTITLED TO THEIR OPINION AND NOWHERE DID I EVER USE THE WORD IDIOT. EXPRESSIONS THAT I DID USE, WERE LUDICROUS, AS IN LAUGHABLE. I ALSO USED THE TERM IGNORANCE TO INDICATE THIS INDIVIDUAL'S LACK OF COMMON SENSE WHEN IT COMES TO ADHERING TO THE RULES THAT WE ALL HAVE TO FOLLOW WHEN OWNING A VEHICLE. I DIDN'T THINK I WOULD HAVE TO CLARIFY THE MEANING OF THE TERMS I USED IN MY PREVIOUS COMMENTARIES. AS FAR AS YOUR OPINION GOES, I WON'T LOWER MYSELF TO YOUR CHILDISH REMARKS.
