For the most part, Joey and Mary Jo Buttafuoco seemed to be having a great time putting their sordid past in front of them. The Massapequa, N.Y., couple, who gained notoriety in the "Lethal Lolita" case this year that erupted when 18-year-old Amy Fisher shot Mary Jo Buttafuoco in the head after an alleged affair with her husband, traveled to Culver City recently to relive their ordeal during the filming of the CBS movie "Casualties of Love: The 'Long Island Lolita' Story."

I promised I would bring the gun. I would buy it in New York, where I was going to see my publisher. It should have been the easiest thing in the world. I wasn't planning to draw down on a murder suspect. This was for an author photo to appear on the jacket of my novel "Judas Horse," the latest in my series of mysteries about FBI Special Agent Ana Grey. How better for a crime writer to appear than armed and dangerous? So before I left Los Angeles, I secured a leather shoulder holster on loan from a law enforcement friend.

A mother holding a child on her lap was shot to death in her living room by a neighbor upset because the woman's husband had parked a truck in the neighbor's driveway, police said. Tonya Stevens, who was in her mid-20s, was hit in the neck by a bullet fired through a window Tuesday night. The gunman was still at large, police said. The child in Stevens' lap was not harmed. The child's age was not given.

Stocks ended with slim gains Wednesday as investors picked through a mixed bag of earnings reports and searched for signs that the U.S. economic recovery will match Wall Street's lofty expectations. Bright spots emerged amid the barrage of corporate America's quarterly results, including those of Internet retailer Amazon.com, which managed to top Wall Street's second-quarter revenue estimates.

When Bernhard Goetz opened fire in 1984, the shots reverberated across the nation. The subway-car shooting of four poor black youths by a middle-class white man--maybe during a mugging, maybe not--was seized by advocates on either side of every urban issue: Crime. Race. Gun control. Vigilante justice. "Bernie Goetz was the most recognized face in the world," recalled his former attorney, Barry Slotnick. "He was loved or hated by everyone who came in contact with him--there was no in between."

Two men were killed and four people were wounded in three separate shootings at New York City restaurants, police said Sunday. Two men were killed Saturday night in a shooting at a Spanish restaurant in Brooklyn. Two others were seriously injured. Police had no motive or suspect. In the Bronx, an off-duty corrections officer leaving a restaurant restroom walked into an armed holdup and traded shots with two would-be robbers, wounding one and getting hit in the arm himself, police said.

I would like to comment on the article about Carol A. Watson filing suit against officers carrying guns off-duty (Aug. 11). When a policeman or deputy is sworn in, he/she promises to uphold the law, to protect and to serve at all times. In essence, we citizens are asking them to be our protectors 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For this we pay them for a 40-hour week and tell them to be happy with that. When police officers are "off-duty," they are obligated to step in when a crime occurs in their proximity.

The recent subway shootings in New York have drawn increased public attention to so-called vigilante actions by people fed up with urban crime and living in fear of hoodlums who terrorize their daily lives. The frustration is understandable, but society cannot condone people's arming themselves and taking the law into their own hands. Even less acceptable is the public thinking that police in any way condone such action.

Some passengers riding the No. 6 train on the Lexington Avenue line voiced concern Friday following the city's fifth subway shooting in just over a month. The latest victim, an unidentified 23-year-old man, was shot in the face and neck as he stood on a platform in Queens on Thursday night, waiting to travel to Manhattan. He remained hospitalized in critical but stable condition. Witnesses told detectives that the man appeared to have been talking with his assailant before the gunfire.
