    911 nightmare: Photo shows single operator answering emergency calls on Long Island

    On Monday, PIX11 News introduced you to a Nassau County father who dialed 911 when his 18-month-old son was having a seizure. Instead of getting an actual person, the family was met with a voicemail saying, “Your call will be answered in the order it was received.” The Civil Service Employees Association says this is happening more and more because of budget and staffing cuts. “Not enough call takers,” said Jerry Laricchiuta, president of CSEA Nassau Local 830. “It’s an inherent problem.” […]

    When you walk down the streets of New York, you are met with all kinds of sights, smells and sounds.

Although we may all love that dirty water dog or giant pretzel, some carts are old, dirty and are kicking out large amounts of pollution because of how they are run. “They are all kicking out large numbers […]

    ‘The Wiz Live,’ a star-studed live action remake of the original 1974 musical, aired Thursday night on NBC. During the three hour musical, many users took to Twitter to battle out whether the musical’s all-black cast was racist. I just learned there is a black version of The Wizard of Oz called "The Wiz" – how is this not racist? — Evan (@MJTM) November 23, 2015 This is how I feel.

    Police pursuits are fast, erratic and deadly. While they may be entertaining and full of suspense to watch on television, they have resulted in 11,500 deaths since 1979 — and more than 5,000 of those deaths were innocent bystanders, caught in the wrong place and the wrong time. “Statistically, there is more than one person being killed because of high speed chases every single day across America,” said Trevor Fischbach, CEO of StarChase, which created new technology that remotely tags a […]
