Looks more like an attempt to "malign" crooks and a similar "infamous" post to me ...

I know for a FACT that two HS girls from Massapequa were caught & have confessed to prosituting in NYC to support their Heroin habits. Was it on news12? Nope Was it in Newsday? nope. It didn't even make the radar.
The Dolans are probably afraid that if the stir the pot in Massapequa, their pictures will wind up on milk cartons.

What is the scoop? Wasn't this the place that didn't play straight on their Section 8 list to keep out the minorities? Sounds like they have plenty of bad apples already that they can't keep out.
The perps in these stories are overwhelmingly WHITE so there's nothing to worry about folks. Now if they had been mainly minorities, there would be plenty of judgement against Smithtown. Back to our regularly scheduled programming ...

OK I know for a FACT that there is a crack house in Smithtown where they also train pitbulls for illegal dog fights, why isn't this reported in Newsday? Oh yeah that's right the DOLENZ don't want to report it! If you can't see the violence in Smithtown you are BLIND! WAKE UP! Just the other day I was at the Smithtown library and there were gang members wearing gang clothing taking out DVDs but NOT READING ANY BOOKS! One time my brother was just minding his business walking near the train station and a group of illegal immigrants gave him an indian burn and noogies, then they kicked him in the shins and stole his wallet....and pushed him between the GAP on the train tracks!! Is it any surprise that Smithtown is the only place on Long Island that has a HIP HOP RECORD STORE?!?! Again, NOT IN NEWSDAY!! The DOLENZ want you to believe that everything is safe and sound, CHARLES DOLENZ, MICKEY DOLENZ, etc. they are all corrupt!!

OBAMA-NATIOn!

This was my point about New Cassel. Had this stuff happen there, we would see a 10 page thread by now about how bad the place is.

Instead we have people giving reasons as to why it is really not that bad.

We lived in Smithtown for 5 years. In those 5 years, our real estate taxes doubled, my Yorkshire Terrier cut her paws on broken beer bottles in the Forestwood area and the building department put us through hell trying to get a CO before we could sell our house. I guess Smithtown is getting it's comeuppance.
