Nerve wracking to say the least. Too close to home. What is wrong with people

I can't believe this happened to someone I grew up with. So sorry to the family :-( Bonnie, you will be missed dearly. Senseless.

Email Legislator Calarco. He is the Vice Chair of the Public Safety Committee which has jurisdiction over all matters pertaining to the Suffolk County Police Department. Nothing will be done unless we all complain. Calarco's office responds and his staff reaches out to the 5th Precinct. If enough people complain, then we will receive action. I have lived here for 10 years and I have never seen anything like this. I am angry as hell. EMAIL--MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD, IF THE COMMUNITY DOESN'T COMPLAIN, THEN THE POLICE ASSUME THAT THE COMMUNITY DOESN'T CARE. Robert.Calarco@suffolkcountyny.gov
