Currently there are "6 comments" on this Article:

  1. To Seriously – The comments made about the police department are factual. The “sad” part is that they are true. The police department fails to provide information that you, and other readers, should have access to, especially when someone in your community is killed in a car accident, and I have to learn about it from a reader’s email.

  2. To Seriously – The comment you refer to was not made by me or anyone I know.

  3. Seriously says:

    Think about it. You make a mistake, or have an accident and it gets reported, and there are editorial comments about your “bad behavior” or “bad driving habits”. It’s not appropriate for the editor of this site to interject those kinds of comments. Show some respect!! Let people be for Gods sake!! Just report the police log. Leave SNL for the professionals on Saturday nite. I don’t see her making editorial comments about the town council or the town manager or the director of public works???? Wassssup with that? And God knows, there’s plenty of material there for her to work with there. Just report the police log and let it be! How about some local stories. Local sports news, schedules, who’s who, etc., etc. “Making light” of a police report is your idea of humor?? Well, when it’s you, or one of your relatives, kids or spouse, I guess we’ll see how funny you think it really is.

    And what about the comments about our police department?? You think those are funny or appropriate too??

    You’re either the editor or someone who knows the editor hiding behind an anonimous name. Thanks for proving my point. Sad, really sad…

  4. Seriously, SERIOUSLY?? says:

    Seriously — How are these comments inappropriate? Making light of a police report? She is in no way offending anyone or making biased statements. Second, you think she is putting any time or effort into these comments? I don’t. Unless she is very, very unwitty and has to think about them for anymore than a second – you’re wrong once again.

    I agree, there isn’t a whole lot of new “news” on this site often, but then again it’s EAST HAMPTON CT, not freakin New York City here bud!

  5. Re: “Four collisions – that we know of” – I have found it extremely frustrating to try to get information about serious accidents, including one fatality, that have occurred in East Hampton, from the police department. The department is either uninformed about accidents or does not choose to share what is public information… As for inserting humor into the police logs, I disagree with you about that being inappropriate.

  6. Seriously says:

    Can we please refrain from the editorial comments in the police log. First of all, they’re highly inappropriate, and second, there are so many other things on this website you should be putting your time and effort into!! Until you can master the simple things, forget about getting too cute!
