  • Looks like another “money makin” Nazi road block pays off for the County and their finest!!
    You know its all about the revenue DWI laws generate, right citizens???…You don’t really think they care if you kill someone or yourself, do you???….cause if they really, really did…they’d outlaw Alcohol all together….but we all know if they did that….their DWI money tree would become fruitless!!
    Best thing a citizen can do is not patronize the businesses in Huntington Village and write a note to the owners as to why!!…..I’m sure when enough constituents contact their crook representatives and complain the, always accommodating politicians will tell SCPD to lay off the Nazi Road Blocks!!….appeasements make votes for the criminals of politics…no matter what the costs!!

    How sad these people endangering lives and polluting our streets with drug deals and possesion of marijuana. obmeier in Huntington Station on a weekday. Look how pathetic he really is to be chained and cuffed due to marijuana possesion.
    look at the article below

  • COC

    Even Gov. Cuomo has come out and said small amounts of marijuana possession needs to be decriminalized. You should be more concerned about some of your local leaders (elected) who have their heads in piles of nose candy (cocaine). Way more of a dangerous drug and these people are law makers and elected. Mr Obermier is just a regular Joe, not an elected official. Pass the bong Joe, just be careful that a few elected representatives or appointees to the COC don’t try to steal your stash.

  • you got it wrong.

    It’s not the Joe Obermaier you think it is so please don’t slander his name. The Obermeier in the linked photo is spelled with E’s, The Obermaier’s that are active in our community have an A.

    It’s this dude.
