I called u a female dog. Not the b word. Wash your mouth out with soap. This is not the place for your foul language. The choice of words are powerful. Your words citzen/taxpayer r used to sear ones mind. To evoke inadequacy. You interpret words that are negative, they are your fuel. You feel powerful because of your diction. In reality you are a pitiful individual, a bully that tries to intimidate ppl by what you have. Which isn't much. At the end of the day, you have no class. You can't compare to any of your friends because they know you are a looser. How do they know because you try to demean others you think you have power over. You don't know who you are where you going you are lost. And you won't find you cause you to busy minding ppl business that you don't know. Look in the mirror, you are your own problem don't use this forum to avoid the real issue YOU!

@ME - I was addressing Tialisher saying I wanted to understand what she had to say but with all the texting language I could not follow her. You were the one who came out viciously against me, and do you think I didn't know what you were calling me? Come on. Re-read your own post. This is a sad story about a young man and its best to call it here. A family has to bury a family member that is all that is left.
Tisizele January 09, 2012 at 09:21 PM
I'm big enough to apologize. I'm sorry for being vicious. Yes it is a sad story. If I misunderstood your words you didn't clarify it clearly. Now I hope this is clear, I apologize for being vicious toward you, I felt you we're being mean and wanted to check that. Again I misunderstood your words and I apologize
Tisizele January 09, 2012 at 09:43 PM
Misty, you are the bottom of the barrel. Instead of giving condolences or simply keep your mouth shut. I hope I don't work for you. You have no compassion for the family and friends. You don't know anyone in the case but you running your mouth. I hope you don't have your own business. You're heart less and just love to think down on ppl. YOU SUCK TEET AND LICK NASSAU COUNTY TOO
Misty January 09, 2012 at 11:16 PM
Actually, "me" at 4:43 pm, I know the entire family and have for a very long time. As screwed up as Diana (Antwan's mother) was, I actually liked her. Also, one of her other brood committed a crime on my family and me and for that I will never forgive any of her offspring. She created monsters who have no respect for the law or themselves for that matter. Also, I'm not heartless. I understand that Antwan's family is mourning his loss.
Tisizele January 09, 2012 at 11:32 PM
So that explains it's. Your heart is harden. I have nothing else to say to you concerning this matter it's personal and I apologize for my comments. I myself must think before I type. Again, I'm sorry
Tisizele January 09, 2012 at 11:33 PM
@ Misty. That last statement was for you I'm sorry
Tisizele January 09, 2012 at 11:41 PM
Before I start typing I'm going to have to ask, Why? I may not agree but all has a right to what they feel. I apologize to all. The lesson learned today is THINK BEFORE I TYPE!
Misty January 10, 2012 at 12:41 AM
Your apology was not necessary, but is very much appreciated. Have a good evening!

Bob you must be a prosecutor you know none of the FACTS. So do what you do best Coward. You babble and talk the talk. This is what you do hide and hide behind your fake name. How about a city council meeting show your face.

Lloyd January 11, 2012 at 01:21 AM
To Anonymous...I receive up to the minute reports of all your rants against me on my Android cellphone. Its very convenient and easy to respond to all your nasty charges. Again. When someone is ignorant and cant make a meaningful remark, they resort to the RACIST charge, as LoveLives has done. Very juvenile and very racist on her? part.

We should really name a street or section of the board walk after this wonderful asset of the community, and I will try and comfort those who mourn long beach tragic loss

because I am sure that the lockup could easily be mistaken for a library at times.......

-Me- ...if the post wasn't meant for literate human beings (that means people who can read), why are the comments made as a reply (which means a return comment to an initial comment) to the aforementioned (person who was replied to) poster.....

First of all Nassau county Correctional facility is one of the most horrible facilities that exist. They strip visitors of there dignity before you visit an inmate. Most ( not all ) of the CO's are racist and ignorant and use excessive force when interacting with the general public; so i can imagine how the inmates are being treated as we speak. It is the responsibility of the CO's to insure the safety of the inmates. If a fight broke out and needed to be defused, that should have been done. Perhaps intervention could have saved this young mans life. How did this young man lose his life, how long was he fighting, was mace used, was excessive force used ( as in so many lawsuits against the jail currently). Is it fair to blame the other inmate when FACTS are not listed. Lets not pretend that the CO's are innocent because if a fight was to occur it is their JOB to defuse it. In addition the young mans record only shows that he committed a crime. That crime he was serving time for, and does not excuse the loss of his life. This facility need a CHANGE as of yesterday.

Jail is supposed to detain criminals, not lead them to a death sentence. Nassau county Correctional facility is one of the most horrible facilities that exist. They strip visitors of there dignity before you visit an inmate. Most ( not all ) of the CO's are racist and ignorant and use excessive force when interacting with the general public; so i can imagine how the inmates are being treated as we speak. Lets not pretend that the CO's may not be to blame. It only takes one bad seed to ruin the bunch and the unwritten no snitching code that these officers abide by will not only make the truth hard to come by but may place a life sentence on the other inmate unlawfully. Although A. Brown was guilty of a crime and sentenced to a jail sentence that sentence was not LIFE or Death in prison. Although he was in an altercation, that should not have lead to his death, The other inmate that may have been defending him self should not be solely or to blame at all. if CO's were on duty and actually doing there JOBS this young mans life may have been saved. Is it fair to blame the other inmate for negligence of the counties officers? This FACILITY needs a CHANGE. you would think after settling billion dollar law suits they would try to get there act together but I know for a FACT that prisoners civil rights are being violated as we speak. SO lets not pretend that CO's at Nassau County Correctional Facility go to work to work every day, or actually know how to do their Jobs.

You call Inmates animals when CO's with big EGOS get aggressive with VISITORS? I am an EYE WITNESS to the aggressive behavior that the CO's display. They get aggressive but do nothing when two inmates fight. How did this young man die? where was the intervention. IT IS A CO"S JOB TO INSURE THE SAFETY OF AN INMATE, so yes I think that the CO's are partially responsible if not solely to blame for this young mans death. On the visiting floor the CO's don't watch nothing. They sit and stand in clusters and talk on the visiting floor, so imagine who they are watching inside. I am a civil servant, and a full time psychologist. I am no Idiot. I know that Jail is a violent place to be, it is a completely different community than on the out side world and thus the reason CO's are hired, but where were they when this young man was killed?
Brendan August 15, 2012 at 01:54 PM
Maria, it sounds like you have some experience getting your dignity stripped from you. I'd venture a guess from your post that you have a history of blaming others for your problems and have serious issues when it comes to taking responsibility for your own situation. The CO's can only do so much - at a certain point, the animals have to fend for themselves in the cage. Get your life together, learn to behave like an adult and stop blaming everyone else for things that happen "to" you and "to" others. You, as well as A. Brown, make your own fate in life. He got what he was asking for.
DR. Jay August 16, 2012 at 12:53 AM
Brendan the only animals at Nassau and any other jail, prison are drug dogs. Just because you go to Jail does not mean you get killed. CO,s are human ummmm ask CO Barber soliciting for smokes. So be careful when you say someones deserves to DIE...
Brendan August 16, 2012 at 05:59 PM
You're making my point for me, Mr. James. Just because you go to prison does NOT mean you get killed. But if what landed you in prison in the first place (a bad attitude, a quick temper, poor impulse control) gets you into further trouble in jail, the inevitable is the inevitable and CO or no CO, eventually everyone arrives at their destination. For proof of what I'm saying, read your own post: not everyone who goes to jail ends up dying. What do you think set A. Brown apart from the crowd?
DR. Jay August 16, 2012 at 06:03 PM
Ok Brendan if i misread your post , i Apologize.
