A very tragic case

From 1010WINS:

Relatives of a doctoral student killed by an accused drunken driver while she was riding in a cab in Astoria are dismayed that the driver had been released from custody while facing an unrelated murder charge.

Lawyer Sanford Rubenstein says Panayiota Demetriou's father intends to meet with Queens prosecutors Friday.

Daryush Omar faces charges including vehicular manslaughter in the Cyprus-born student's November death in Queens.

He also is charged with murder in a Manhattan beating in May 2006.

Omar, 24, of Plainview, Long Island had been released into immigration custody after the Manhattan murder case hit roadblocks, though it remains open.

Immigration authorities later released him because of time limits.

What a shame. In my day he would have been dragged out of that cab and beaten dead on the streets of Astoria for doing something like this. What a shame people are more law-abiding now.

"Lawyer Sanford Rubenstein says Panayiota Demetriou's father intends to meet with Queens prosecutors Friday."

------------------
Lawyer Sanford Rubenstein should be disbarred for cruel stupidity to the distraught father. The Queens prosecutor, DA Brown, has no intention of putting this killer drunken driver in jail. Refer to his release of D. Pee Gallagher, accused of rape.

"Daryush Omar faces charges including vehicular manslaughter in the Cyprus-born student's November death in Queens."

------------------
Omar is not worried.

"He also is charged with murder in a Manhattan beating in May 2006."

2006? 170 year old Morgenthau has far more important things to do besides prosecuting a murderer. For one, just keeping from peeing in his
pants all day.

"Refer to his release of D. Pee Gallagher, accused of rape"

Taxpayer, I'm just curious. Whatever happened to Gallagher and that rape case?

Queens Crapper said...

He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor sexual abuse and got probation and alcohol counseling.

Queens Crapper said...

Correction: "forcible touching and sexual abuse"

italian girl said...

Is the woman suing him?

Queens Crapper said...

She and her husband are both suing him.

italian girl said...

What a disgrace! Imagine Gallagher was your husband or father. OMG. I would change my name.

italian girl said...

I glad they're suing him.

His blood-alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit when he plowed through a red light at 45 mph or more and slammed into a livery cab on Nov. 16, Queens prosecutors said.

So we can see that this guy is a nice, observant member of the "religion of peace".

Kyrie Eleison, Christe Eleison...

RIP Miss Demetriou

italian girl said...

It's only the "religion of peace" when the psychopaths of their religion aren't killing people.

"Kyrie Eleison, Christe Eleison..."

Are you a priest? I thought you had to be a priest to say that.

No, I'm not a priest!

But it is included in the Cardinal's mass at St. Patrick's on Sundays as one of the responses. It's actually sung by the crowd.

I included it as respect to Miss Demetriou and our Greek Orthodox friends.

Thanks for turning this item into a display of your religious bigotry.

No, thanks for turning a tragic death caused by a drunken illegal alien, and the failure of the U.S. Government to enforce it's own damn laws, into your own miserable excuse to get up on your soapbox and flaunt your liberal ass peacock feathers. You're so much more morally sophisticated and non-judgemental than the rest of us, ass munch.

I tell it like it is, moron. Unlike you, who likes to "whistle by the graveyard" and conveniently turn your head whenever an inconvenient fact comes before your Politically Correct eyes. I can't stand effete limp-wristed white guys like you.

It's too bad you weren't in that car instead of someone with such promise as Miss Demetriou and the driver, Miss Velasquez.

What does anything Wade just said have to do with the bigoted religious comments that he made? Oh, nothing, other than to reinforce the ignorance.

Are the same idiots that refuse to refer to illegal aliens as ILLEGAL, they, like the NY Times refer to them as "poor immigrants" Illegals are become a huge financial drain on our system that is hurting us all. They are also contibuting more and more to the crime rate, especially violent crime, as the latest FBI #'s have shown. Forget what religion they are, or what country they come from, the ONLY thing that should be focused upon is that they are here ILLEGALLY. The Left and the Right must come together to do something about this. Unfortunately, the Left continues to use spin. If someone is against illegals, they are coined a RACIST. This never ceases to amaze me.

Monihan had it right, "Defining deviancy down." On 18th Street in Astoria, I have nearly been killed by cars driving up the middle of the sidewalk to the front of my building.

Please note that I am not describing someone entering an alley or a driveway, but someone driving straight down the middle of the sidewalk to the front of the building instead of using the parallel-running street outside. The lady driving appeared stone sober and was of European descent. Probably born here.

People park on the sidewalk daily.
Tip to traffic agents. Bring a camera, and photograph they while they drive away. Licenses must be removed. People must lose cars.

georgie, I hope you start a movement here. Everyone should call 911 whenever they see day laborers standing around waiting for work. Then when you need an ambulance, or your house is burning down, georgethefetishist, the 911 circuitboard will be jammed with all these nuisance calls.

Idiot.

The irony is, Wade is the most pansy-arse limp-wristed white "guy" around here.

And "his" momma wears combat boots.

Next time you try to refocus this discussion on illegals (Omar was legal) and the "religion of peace," why not also mention the goodhearted Greek Orthodox man Evangelos Fotiou who attempted to steal money off the bodies of the dead?

Yea, I know. So why are they here and not soaking up the sun on a beach somewhere?

Cause this is where its at knucklehead.

Omar was born in a Pakistani refugee camp. Sources said they believe he is an Afghan.

As my father used to say, "The most dangerous part of any car is the loose nut behind the wheel." Confiscate licenses, confiscate cars, jail drunks, deport aliens who drunk drive or commit other crimes, whether they are legal or illegal.

My father immigrated to this country from Ireland in 1947 and raised 4 children, supported a wife and her mother on two jobs with a 5th grade education.

I am sick of crooks regardless of from where they hail, how much money they have or who their friends are.

Asshole. 100 people loitering on the street is an emergency.

Not really. It's a sign of economic potential. When those guys go away - when they've given up hope - THEN we've all got an emergency.

Your abuse of the system will bite you in the ass, if we're lucky. Just keep dialing 911, georgie... just keep dialing 911.

No, it's a sign of porous borders and represents a breach of U.S. Security.

And how, pray [ahem] tell will that bite take place?

"It's a sign of economic potential."

No, it's a sign of violating the US Immigration Laws.

Ueberasshole.
