OHHHHH, big bust by the hate crimes unit!!!!! How much does this crap cost the taxpayers. I will tell you millions(ask your county hack) Gee, number one...why is a menorah in a county park?????? What happened to separation of church and state? I can't even put a Christmas tree up at work, and angel on top....may bring the hate crime squad. I will bet these KIDS, hear that hate crime squad.....KIDS....don't even know what a menorah is or represents. How about our police fighting the crime that is out of control here in Suffolk.....drugs killing our children. But ahhh, there is a problem, most of these lethal drugs are coming from hispanic neighborhoods so...... PC by our county hacks is really killing a lot of poor kids getting hooked on MEXICAN BLACK TAR HEROIN< SOUTH AMERICAN COKE/CRACK all moved across our open southern Mexican border that our President refuses to secure. Please, reasonable people who see this for what it is need to get involved in our communities and demand the highest paid cops in probably the entire world, yes it is true, do their REAL job.
