“The crime spree began in February, and at least a dozen businesses have been hit since.”
Highest paid cops in the nation, and are worthless. Ever consider deploying decoy cops as behind the counter personnel at any of the PATTERN locations? Damned idiots. Shop owners should get a gun, shoot the guy, and drag him out to the gutter and leave him there to die. What are police waiting for, vigilantes to get the perp? If so, then roll back police salaries to minimum wage because they aren’t worth anything. Maybe a detail from NYPD should be sent to Long Island to work this “unsolvable” case.
