Aren't these establishments the same ones that basically let customers consume alcohol on the premises even though they are not licensed for on site consumption?? And then the drunks stumble out in to our neighborhood, urinating in our front and side lawns...Where's the sting operations for that behavior?

beano; there will never be sting operations because the second precinct police officers do not patrol the high crime neighborhoods in and around the train station area. Although if you go into Huntington village on any given weekend you will spot at least 4 marked patrol cars within a 3 block radius just chilling out watching all the girls go in and out of Hanu or the Paramount or the dozens of other bars and restaurants, followed by them going into little vincents for a "Free" slice of pizza. I don't blame the patrol officers, I blame the supervisors and the commanding officer Inspector Brady for letting this lack of professionalism occur under his command. The Police cannot Police themselves and that is clear. Suffolk county police are the highest paid in the country, that's right, the country. Not even places like Beverly Hills police are getting the salary that these police officers do, and when they respond to a job, they act as if you owe them something because you've interupted them from all the "Big" crimes they're out solving. They need to understand that they work for us! not the opposite, they are civil servants, and they're job is to serve civilians because we pay their astronomical salaries. It's time for citizens to start policing the Poilce, The days of empty suite are over!
