‘They Keep Finding Bodies’: Gang Violence in Long Island Town Fuels Immigration Debate

BRENTWOOD, N.Y. — Four dead teenagers. Two weeks. One town. And a ruthless gang, the authorities say, was most likely responsible for the toll. Again.

On Sept. 13, Nisa Mickens, 15, and her best friend, Kayla Cuevas, 16, were murdered, their battered bodies found near an elementary school here. A week later and just two miles away, the skeletal remains of two more teenagers — identified as Oscar Acosta, 19, and Miguel Garcia-Moran, 15 — were found in the woods near a psychiatric hospital. Oscar had been missing since May, Miguel since February. Their deaths have been ruled homicides.

    Brentwood is largely Hispanic. You can draw your own conclusions.

    • Carumba!

      Like Bayshore you can’t find anyone walking around who speaks English.

    Think it’s bad now? Just wait until they get a couple of thousand muslims dumped on them.
