Re: A Westbury man was arrested for public lewdness on October 10 at 11:55 a.m. in Hempstead. Since this crime occurred on S. Franklin St in Hempstead why is it listed under Westbury when in fact S. Franklin St is miles from the border of Westbury.

Since it was a Westbury man who allegedly committed the act.

very missleading it should have been liusted under Village of Hempstead.
Geoffrey Walter (Editor) October 13, 2012 at 08:44 PM
It clearly states "A Westbury man was arrested for public lewdness on October 10 at 11:55 a.m. in Hempstead."

Wow people have a lot of time on their hands to be berating Geoff about this. The story involved a Westbury man - move on people!
Vincent October 13, 2012 at 10:03 PM
mimi: first, what people do with their time is their business. Second, no one is berating anyone and you know that! And third, this is a crime report. The crime occurred in Hempstead.

Geoff, I appreciate the very hard work that you do in covering this community. I've seen you at many events and I can only imagine how difficult your job can be at times. People take themselves just too darn seriously. Keep up the great work.
jonathan winant October 14, 2012 at 02:55 PM
This is a matter of keeping the news headlines as accurate as possible. The headline was very missleading as others have pointed out. A simple correction would be more professional.
jonathan winant October 14, 2012 at 05:15 PM
MMMI: This has nothing at all about taking things to seriously. The bottom line is that a reporter needs to gets facts straight no matter how minute the details are. The story is listed under WESTBURY and not Village Of Hempstead where it actually occurred. If you were looking for stories about things which happened in Westbury then this inncident did not happen in Westbury..
jonathan winant October 14, 2012 at 05:18 PM
MIMI If your a resident of Westbury you might understand me comments. From the headline it appeared as another auto accident in Westbury. This was as far from what actually happened.
