Their bodies were found Thursday morning in a wooded marsh... ..............................................RIP to these 2 youngsters & Prayers for their Family............& F&#k the scumbag who turned them away.

  The story is sad enough. I didn't know that some piece of $hit turned them away when a mother asked for help with her two young children. That poor woman. Please Lord just give her the strength to deal with it. There's no words to ease the pain for her.

Staten Islanders are being urged to beware of impostorsŁ

Despite a massive police presence on the Island, which included a visit from Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly Sunday, Islanders are being urged to be on the lookout for impostors trying to take advantage of the situations created by Sandy.
By EDDIE D'ANNA and MARK STEINŁ É

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. - A Tottenville man wearing a red and white Red Cross jacket claimed to be affiliated with the disaster relief organization after he was seen pulling on the doors of evacuated homes in Midland Beach, police say.

But authorities say he wasn't a volunteer with the group -- and wasn't trying to help victims of the storm, either.

Officers patrolling the area spotted Alfonso Manzo, 49, of the 7800 block of Amboy Road, checking front doors and peering into windows of unoccupied homes on Midland Avenue at 7:20 p.m. Friday, according to police.

When questioned by officers in front of 590 Midland Ave., Manzo claimed to be a Red Cross worker, according to court documents.

However, he was unable to produce documentation or identification indicating he was with the agency, those documents state.

He later admitted to officers he had no affiliation with the Red Cross.

Upon arresting Manzo, officers discovered six white pills in his possession believed to be methadone, court papers state.

He is charged with second-degree criminal impersonation and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. É

ÉBE AWAREŁ É

Islanders are being urged to keep an eye out for people pretending to be someone they aren't, and also to be skeptical of rumors floating around the borough.

For example, reports surfaced on Facebook at the end of last week claiming that gun-toting burglars had taken firefighters' uniforms from Engine Co. 67/Ladder Co. 87 in Annadale. An FDNY spokesman said that rumor is "100 percent false."

Additionally, rumors have spread claiming that people wearing firefighter uniforms and others claiming to be with Consolidated Edison are looting.

Peter N. Spencer, a spokesman for District Attorney Daniel Donovan, said there is nothing to substantiate those rumors.

However, he advised people to be aware of anything strange.

"Right now, there is a massive police presence on the Island. If anyone sees anything suspicious, they should alert an officer. Islanders need to look out for each other, as I am sure they have been doing throughout this crisis," Spencer said.

But people definitely should ask for identification from people going door to door.

"Even if it is possible that someone stole a uniform, it would be very difficult to fake an ID. And if you are still suspicious, write down names, ID numbers, license plates of vehicles -- anything that can be used to check the authenticity of the personnel," added Spencer.

He noted that most repair work is being done outdoors.

Spencer also said a family member or friend should be contacted to let them know if workers are at your house, so they can check on the situation or you can check in with them to ensure your safety.

"Be aware, not wary -- unfortunately, criminals may try to take advantage of this disaster, but there are many emergency personnel and volunteers on the Island who are working to help victims of this storm," Spencer said. É

City sanitation worker gets electric jolt while removing debris in Staten Island; he's stable

A city sanitation worker was zapped by electricity this morning while removing debris in Staten Island, authorities said.

Michael Lewery, 46, was clearing an area in New Dorp Beach along Milton Avenue at 10:25 a.m. when he felt a jolt, officials said.

ôHe was working on debris removal and was loading a ruined refrigerator into a truck when he apparently felt an electrical shock and screamed,ö said Sanit Department spokesman Vito Turso.

Lewery, a 13-year sanitation veteran, was rushed to Staten Island University North Hospital where he is in stable condition, said a spokesman for the FDNY.

It was not immediately clear was caused the electrocution, but sanitation supervisors said that they did not detect any live wires in the area.

Lewery, a Staten Island resident, sustained major damage to his own home during the storm, sources said.

Sanitation workers were out in full force today with 700 trucks operating citywide, Turso said.

Reserve engines still operating on Staten Island. Saw 505 on Seaview this afternoon.

I finally was back on Staten Island today for the first time since the storm and all I can say is you really don't understand the immense size and magnitude of the devastation from the pictures.
