Who are the people committing these crimes? Are they supposed to be in our country? Hint, hint. I find that the more illegals we have on Long Island the higher our crime rate has risen. Not prejudice just a statement.

Uh, hey Randi. Check out the police blotter for the arrests for drunk driving, hit and runs and spousal abuse. Lots of friendly hardworking folks doing jobs Americans won't do.
