Always nice to be recognized by a member of the legislature:
“Long Island residents have been up in arms since the attempted robbery and shooting that occurred at Roosevelt Field Mall on Tuesday afternoon. Assemblyman Charles Lavine issued a letter to County Executive Ed Mangano on his concerns following this incident … Dear County Executive Mangano … Notwithstanding the support you receive from the National Rifle Association, its Political Voting Fund, its Institute for Legislative Action and the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, its official state affiliate, the Roosevelt Field shooting represents yet another instance of our national crisis in the proliferation of firearms …”

The pre-sentencing report, Lavine said, noted that McClary’s interests were “babysitting and basketball.” …”

Levine, Forest Hills, N.Y., for appellant F. Abdelgani …”
… and those who aid and abet terrorists:
“… Radical Lawyer Lynne Stewart must serve a decade in prison – a sentence that could keep her behind bars until she turns 80. Flanked Thursday by family and supporters, Stewart, 70, quietly wiped away tears as U.S. District Judge John Koeltl handed down his decision to give her 10 years and a month for helping a blind extremist cleric relay messages to terror cohorts in Egypt …”
