Gang violence has been a problem in Central Islip, Brentwood and other Long Island communities for more than a decade, but Suffolk County police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation began pouring resources into a crackdown after the killings of the girls, along with two other Brentwood High School students involved in separate killings, sparked outrage.
CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. The bodies of four men, all described as having suffered "significant trauma", were discovered in a park in a suburban NY neighborhood that has for years contended with a growing problem of gang violence. Commissioner Sini said the victims "all suffered from significant trauma throughout their body" and were left behind for an undetermined amount of time.

"We believe the homicides were committed recently", he told Newsday.com.

Emily Martin of the National Women's Law Center disagrees, laying out four reasons in US News and World Report for the pay inequity.
The discovery of the bodies comes about a month after more than a dozen MS-13 members were indicted in seven killings on Long Island over three years, including the deaths of several high school students last year.
"These heinous acts will not go unpunished and our communities will not be intimidated by such cowardly violence", he said in a statement. "This is a long term war", he said. "And make no mistake about it, it's a war". A group waiting at the scene in Central Islip was hoping for some news about their loved ones.
The acquaintance "called saying that my brother was here, dead", Tigre, 21, said.
One of the other girls, who in an online post said, "we gonna get her ... she's scared", and kicked Joyner-Francis while she was on the floor struggling to defend herself, also was convicted of conspiracy.

We didn't deserve anything more than what we got. "The only positive we can take is that not much has changed around us". Swansea substitute Luciano Narsingh came closest to an equaliser for the visitors but his powerful strike went just over.
Sini confirmed that the manner in which the young men were killed "is consistent with the modus operandi of MS-13". "He just said, 'I saw your brother dying, and I escaped.' That's the only thing he said". They also suggested that she was a willing participant in a fight between "mutual combatants". It wasn't immediately clear what led them to the park.
The parents of 16-year-old Justin Llivicura are anxious that the boy may have been among the victims. "When his parents woke up, he wasn't at home", he said.
Police have not commented on the alleged phone call.
