I find it hard to believe that this man was from Riverhead, by the sound of his name I'm sure he isn't even from this country. Unbelievable... and i'm sure he is walking around a free man tonight. He will go in front of the judge in a few weeks they will plea him down with a fine and he will walk away scott free just to do it all over again in a few weeks. When are we going to do something about these illegals?????

Please delete the above racist comment from the fake 'Mrs. Smith' above.

Its not being racist at all. It is the truth. They come here abuse our system and my tax dollars are paying for them. The above post has nothing to do with racism. It is a fact and us as a community and a country have to do something about the illegals coming here and getting away with everything. By the way my name is Mary Smith is not a fake name. So please don't even try that. Shame on you Bill for thinking it is ok to drink and drive without a license.

Mary I agree that the laws are too easy. Pull this in Mexico as a US citizen and you will be in jail for years. Just read the Sunday Newsday and see 8-10 of these in the Hamptons every week. Are politicians are worried about votes not the people that that they represent.
