  1. I cannot believe someone just said, “Can you think of a more pathletic person to pick on then a crossing guard?”. How dare someone look down upon people in such judgement.

    I praise all crossing guards for their patience with all of the rude and aggressive drivers out there and for helping to keep our children safe every day.

    Who ever made that comment about crossing guards is himself pathetic. And the drivers of the car who hit the guard are even more so.

  2. Ok everyone can we please chill on the personal attacks in comments? I don’t want to see anymore insults or your post will be deleted.

  3. The flimsy charges are an outrage. Look at these low level wide-guy wannabees!!! They should stay in New Rochelle where low-lifes like this belong! I can only imagine the “family” of supporters that packed the court room. It probably resembled the cast of Good Fellas. Disgusting, that filth like this could endanger our children.

  4. Why am I not surprised at such flimsy charges? These lowlife punks should be charged with felonies. Assault 2 fits fine, and I’m sure there are plenty of other charges that would also work. These creeps assaulted a public officer and endangered our children. They need to serve real time. … But somehow I had a feeling it wouldn’t happen. Ask yourself, who makes these decisions?

    • Why am I not surprised that another person makes a comment without knowing the full extent of the story…there was much more to this story then what got published in a one sided article. Dont start making judgment decisions on people until you get the whole story right….but seems like you believe everything you read. Try the national enquirer…you’ll love it.
