Anna Kovarick sold heroin in between picking up and dropping off kids at school, officials say.

Pat is a moron- to even post that response shows how stupid she is. Gee- maybe I should a rob aRead More bank, because its a tough economic environment? Can't blame her? How about instead of selling illegal drugs, maybe go to night school and get a degree, to educate yourself. NO- that is too easy right? let's sell drugs. Go to jail and rot.

They [not all but some] pull people over for bullshit and pull the power trip on innocent individuals who truly made mistakes or non-threatening/harmful offenses.

James Barrett may have a point, they were being safeish. Imagine if they rented vans or somethingRead More and were driving themselves under the influence? It isn't cheap to rent a coach bus and I have to believe parents put up the money for this. The parents should be held accountable first if they paid for it and not accompanying the children. Parents should also be held more accountable for the actions of children 21 and younger. Many people bring children into this world and assume no responsibility, this must change.
John Roberson April 24, 2014 at 12:04 am
and none of the teens were charged? That is outrageous. The little darlings probably brought theirRead More own booze on to the bus and drank and then trashed the bus and the driver is the scapegoat. Of course, the driver should never have let these children on the bus in the first place, but maybe they bribed him or maybe they threatened him or his family. No telling what kids will do today to get what they want.

Archie Bunker- I think you need to take a refresher math course. They wanted to sell the stock inRead More 2010, and contacted the police in 2011. Not sure how your math turned that into "2 years to report it" Taking into account that different years can be as little as one day apart, and I'm sure they spent some time waiting for the nonexistent check to arrive, and trying to get in touch with him. So the only remarkable thing about that is your math skills, or lack of.

You are only going by what the reporter has given you, which they are paid for giving you a juicy story. I can PROMISE you that he isnt getting away with a slap on the wrist.

That doesn't mean you can pass such a hard judgment on him! He has plenty of things on his plate whithout having your uneducated judgements about him! He has dedicated his life to serving his country. Why should he defend you, when you are so quick to crucify him?!?!?

John April 4, 2014 at 09:12 pm
@Susan Yes I can fill in gaps and NEW STUFF going on in the Chris Boutin case very well for you. IfRead More anyone cares has been following his case (hearings, motions, bail etc) very easily done on webcrims they would be up to date, but it appears most have not so i will bring everyone up to speed. Christopher was picked up and charges with 3 counts of a controlled sale ( Heroin ) from his driveway to alleged undercover police. Chances are these undercover police they speak of was simply a customer who got pulled over leaving the home of MR Boutin as police watched, They was given two Options. Go to jail or work with them to take down MR Boutin with hard evidence they needed and be there RAT they needed or as i will continue to reefer to him as there (CI) Aka confidential informant. Chris was booked with a 2 misdemeanor charges of possession and 3 counts of Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance 3rd Degree schedule 1 dangerous drug. The Judge set his bail at 20k cash or 40K bond. He remained in custody. His next hearing the Judge ordered his bail set to 40k cash or 40k bond, He remained in custody. Around march 5th while Chris was still in police custody/county jail a NEW 4th felony charge, Possession of a schedule 1 dangerous drug with intent to sell and a judge ordered his bail set to 50k cash, 50k bond. It also mention's a Grand Jury in his webcrims report a more then once. From looking over the fact's in this one would come to believe another Agency that was not present during the arrest, possibly the DEA or DRUG TASK FORCE had pending charges of a past sale of heroin since new charges were added on while in custody during one of his court dates. It would also appear buy the mention of a grand jury that Chris has not accepted or most likely the prosecutor has not yet offered a plea bargain for a lighter sentence. It's extremely possible since another felony charge was added there could be more charges on-going that he does not know about yet, and this is why no plea-agreements have been made. I looked up his past criminal history in the state of NY to see if this was his first offense or not. It shows a misdemeanor arrest of Paraphernalia possession of Hypodermic syringes or needles from a few years back but does not show charges if there was any or if the case was thrown out. It looks like he is facing 8 to 15 years upstate NY, and with good behavior will be out in 5 or 6. PS as in the Boutin Case, Confidential Informant's (who only have to testify in a trial, but there name will appear on Chris's paperwork for him to see eventually ) undercover police usually is slang for it was a busted customer who used a police issued video and voice recording device placed in the car to do 3 or 4 buys. They will not tell the public, This way other dealer's do not read about all the busted customers used to put charges on drug dealers. A way to keep them out of the Loop and in the dark so to say. The same reason the words phone tap are not often printed in articles. So they think they don't use them around here. The word's you do not hear somebody does not want you to hear for a reason, This way people have no idea it happens every day to make drug bust's or else cases wont hold up in court.. All Tools, Tricks, lies and deceit used buy the police since the 70's.
John April 4, 2014 at 09:12 pm
My all time favorite. Police arrest 2 best friends for what-ever the case might be, Then put eachRead More friend in separate rooms telling one friend his buddy is talking up a storm about him, confessed its him, or about to tell us everything, So now is his last chance to do the right thing and be the only one out of two who are going home tonight when that door close's behind us, if not your friend will be the one to leave. So the one friend being pressured hard knows the game's police play so he sits there saying to himself over and over my best friend would never rat me out or Lie and say it was me (when hes not guilty). Eventually hours and hours later your starving and threw one way glass they ask your friend to move rooms and make sure he sees his best friend walk buy eating a bag of McDonald's laughing as the cops tell him a joke about someone else there. So he gets angry and when the police come back in he talks and tells all about his friend. They Won. Meanwhile all they did was tell his friend that they both are not in any trouble and each are allowed diner while they process them before both go home, and offer to pick him up some food when there done eating at McDonald's so his buddy was hungry and all he did was say yes. Meanwhile they just got his best friend to talk with this simple $6 bag of fast food diversion.

Every night we see muggings, car crashes, etc. on the news. Just like those phony red light cameras they create a nice, feel good mindset that has no connection to reality. Likewise, the police seldom prevent crime, although my idea above might work. Long Island is in the middle of a large heroin war, and the young people in HS and up are the users. That is the reason for bank robberies, IMO. We need to recognize this, and work together. The minute that someone is killed in a robbery, folks will talk about armed security. Unfortunately, it won't register on most people until then.
Lori Ames March 12, 2014 at 05:06 pm
Vincent, I have many friends who are police officers, so I take offense to your comment. My inquiryRead More was why this was not reported sooner. I didn't know that news organizations waited for police departments to issue press releases (press releases are not issued by the men in blue protecting us). I remember when reporters and news outlets monitored scanners, tracked down sources, asked questions, and actually reported news. I know that the Patch does not have those resources, but one would expect outlets such as Newsday and News 12 to do a better job of keeping the communities informed.
Tim E March 13, 2014 at 08:45 am
