Denise, how do you know that they are not "illegals" ? You may be right but it's not conclusive. "SCPD policy and procedure prohibits officers from questioning witnesses and victims about their immigration status but requires SCPD officers to question a person arrested for a crime regarding his or her immigration status, regardless of the charge, “when there is reason to believe” that the arrestee is an “undocumented person.” Chapter 16, section 4." http://www.justice.gov/crt/about/spl/documents/suffolkPD_TA_9-13-11.pdf

Jeff, this story from 2007 shows you how long it's been going on... MS-13 Gang "Entrenched" On Long Island By Lisa Finn The East End, like many places around the country, is being infiltrated by a violent gang, the La Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13. Reports of a recent gang-related incident in Greenport have shattered the peace of mind of some residents living in the village and surrounding communities, after two Shelter Island men were savagely beaten by seven gang members brandishing baseball bats. The motive, police said, was gold chains the victims wore on their necks. Gang activity is not unique to the North Fork, said Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa, who worked with former Greenport Mayor David Kapell to bring a chapter to the village after residents expressed concerns about crime and drug activity. Sliwa asked Kapell if he felt the recent incident was symptomatic of a growing MS-13 presence in Greenport; Kapell said he didn't believe so. That's not to say that the MS-13 presence has not been growing Island-wide. "MS-13 seems to put its palm print on Nassau and Suffolk Counties," said Sliwa, with gangs located in communities such as Valley Steam, Baldwin, Freeport, Copaigue, Brentwood and Huntington Station. Other MS-13 influences can be found in Riverhead, he said. "They're entrenched. They're growing." http://www.indyeastend.com/Articles-i-2007-08-08-69243.113117-MS13_Gang_Entrenched_On_Long_Island.html

Hey Kenneth, If I wrote like you I would be embarrassed to sign my real name. You can't spell and your grammar is so bad I can't even decipher what you are trying to say but it seems that you are trying to expose where women's shelters are located. What's even more pathetic; English is obviously your first and only language!
