Doesn't look like they received the proper beating. Too bad, scumbags!

Archie, I'd like a list from you on "OK cop beatings" as per crime level committed by perp. You should move to a radical Muslim controlled area. Sounds like you would like it there. What's up Archie? Dad beat you and your mother, so that's the kind of world you live in?

Frank, what's wrong? You must have a kid that's a heroin addict and commits crimes all over LI. If you would have raised him correctly maybe he would of turned out better. Maybe you caught a beating from the cops Mr Liberal. I can't wait until you see one of these scumbags standing over you at 3 in the morning. Say hi to Hillary and Obama. You will like it in NYC, lots of "people" like you. Thanks for the laugh.....lol

These morons are breaking into peoples homes while the homeowners are hard at work making a livings. These idiots are causing numerous unnecessary hardships to the families. The homeowners now have to deal with property stolen, damage to their homes, mental trauma for themselves and children. A bleeding heart for these trash? A beating for each house they broke into and financial restitution would be the start. Why aren't they held financially responsible for their actions? Would like to see how you would feel if they broke in your home and your wife walked in on them. Would you offer them coffee and donuts and talk about what they did wrong, Mr. Esposito?

Well said Sean, it's people like Mr Esposito that is the problem.
