Where were the parents ??........No supervision for 42 teenagers ??......The bus company should NOTRead More have allowed the trip without adults present....This didn't just happen.. the teens / students planned it.....They knew it was wrong..The parents of the teens are just as responsible..As for the driver, He should have notified the police with the first sign of alcohol..If he didin't notice it....He's a bad example of a responsible driver.....1} Students, 2} Paents, 3} Driver/Bus company Are to blame...AND....I would have no problem with criminally charging ALL of them if legaly posible....This monkey business has to STOP !!!

Was it the 16 or 17 year olds credit card who got the bus? Exactly....
Sal April 16, 2014 at 09:22 am
Well,,, this is about teenagers,, trying to be adults.. that's all! Is it right? NO! Is it safe? NO!Read More Does any parent want this to happen to their precious child? NO! Should any ADULT go along with a 16 year old who's trying to be the adult? Again,,, NO! This story shows how bad things happen, that's all! This is not new, of course not! But,,, still and all,, it has to be dealt with! Instead of you commenter's arguing about kids acting like the kids they are,, which means NOTHING at the end of the day because when a "kid" gets himself/herself killed deader than stone for a stupid decision,,, we adults (assuming we're all really adults), need to talk seriously about the dangers of the "rebelliousness of youth"!!! Our society today glorifies "Budweiser" as if it's some wonderful, manly, right of adulthood!!! What B@#$HIT!!! Beer stinks!!! I mean, socially, and literally! Especially by the next morning, if you've ever had to pick up the cans and bottles after a party! Oi vey!!! Getting drunk is unfortunately a right of adulthood in the minds of the mindless! On the other hand,,, the smart people, the thinkers in life,,, they keep beer and alcohol in its place! They don't glorify it as so many idiots do. That's why kids suffer,, because some jackasses (so-called adults) allow their kids to do-as-they-please,, and of course, this way of living seems cool to the 16 year old, and then begins to get angry with his parents for trying to protect them from real dangers that exists in these so called "kids will be kids" behaviors! The bottom line is,,, we need to spend equal time teaching kids the reality of what happens when it's "MILLER TIME", or,, if you think, "THIS BUD'S FOR YOU"! seriously folks,,, what has beer done for ANYONE,,, except get them drunk??? So,, we are to blame ultimately for the good,,, and,,, the bad things that happen in society, both to our own kids,,, and,,,,, our neighbors!!! Remember folks,,, and you heard it here first: In life,, you have to be a thinker,, or else,,,,,,, you're you're a STINKER!!! I'm going to start printing tee shirts with that written on them, and offer them to all high schools!!!! LOL!!! PEACE!!!

People should not be able to to make salacious comments, here, without identifying themselves andRead More their connection (if any) to the events in question. Readers need to be cautious about believing or buying-in to those comments posted by people who most likely don't know "Jack".
Ralph Cavaliere March 31, 2014 at 09:24 am
To Christopher Wendt, Where did "Jack" say anything salacious in his comments on theRead More Hofstra student's death? ALL avenues of the cause of death should be explored...A young man, not yet in his prime, is a most unusual death. As far as I'm concerned, suicide is a criminal act as is homicide. It is still killing someone, even if self inflicted.....By the way, salacious is the wrong word to use in your point of view. I see nothing "salty" in his comments.

Christine Quinn Marcino March 24, 2014 at 12:30 am
This terrible accident haunted me the last few days. My son and I were walking our dog up NassauRead More blvd and saw police cars and yellow tape across the way. We couldn't tell what was going on as we noticed no people around, so we thought perhaps a tree branch came down or maybe a burglary occurred. When I saw in The Patch later that night that a jogger was hit, I was so saddened. I thought about her and her family with a heavy heart. Seems like such a quiet and wide street with little thru traffic, that I too wondered how in the world could a driver not have seen her!
J Grippo April 5, 2014 at 09:17 pm
Unfortunately, the memory of this recent tragedy has been forgotten based on the way the motoristsRead More continue to drive in the Adelphi campus area! The pedestrians in LA during a SHARKNADO attack have better odds of survival then people around here lately! Disgraceful driving habits. My condolences to the family.

I was recently driving east on Stewart, waiting for cars to pass so I could turn left on Oxford.Read More Just as my clearing was approaching I saw a jogger on the Stewart sidewalk also headed east cross over Oxford. She never ever looked up for possible cars. Had I not seen her out of the corner of my eye I could have hit her. My heart goes out to all involved in this unfortunate accident.

Lola, stop being so politically correct. If you live in Garden City you realize you're surroundedRead More by garbage from all sides...black, white, and hispanic people. Yes, not all black, white, and hispanic people are bad. Yes, we have a lot of white trash too here in GC..not LIGHT trash....I'll say it again...WHITE trash who commit crimes too. We have White trash junkies that live in GC committing crimes too. But it wasn't a "light man" in your terms who pistol whipped a young female Garden City resident last week and stole her phone either. Color has a lot to do with crime. Name one black community in America that people are saying "I need to move there". It's not happening....it's reality. Al Sharpton is not your friend.

Agree with Paul about Nassau county becoming another borough of NYC.Ive lived in Levittown for 40Read More years and it's slowly deteriorating along with other Nassau communities.The undesirables that are infiltrating is sickening.Door to door soliciting by low lifes,crime is up,going to Walmart in East Meadow is like going to a third world country.Women risk their lives walking to their car and Nassua is filled with scammers and thieves like the two in the above article.

In this day and age this should not have happened.Infection control which this falls under should beRead More strictly followed. In order to maintain your nursing license every four years a nurse nurse must take an infection control course.

The news is making her seem as if she was "living a lie", and all I was trying to say isRead More that skipping school and not telling your parents is COMPLETELY normal. I myself was skipping college classes as a 20 year old and I didn't want my parents to know about it. This doesn't mean that she was a deceitful person. May she rest in peace.
LS March 13, 2014 at 01:26 pm
This is so sad. I had hoped they would find her staying with someone her family didn't know, andRead More she would be returned safely home. The parking lot at that location might not be empty at night because there is a car rental business there, I believe. Still, I should think the police would wait to state a cause of death until there was a medical examiner's determination. Rest in peace.

middle class welfare is what you are taking about. You just don't know it. The budget (money spentRead More for your taxes) on the "welfare" is spent mostly on the middle class.
