Dear Editor:

Along with many other New Yorkers, my condolences go out to the family and friends of Raizel and Nachman Glauber.

However, why after all these years do Assemblyman David Weprin and State Senator Eric Adams call for tougher penalties for hit-and-run drivers in "Police have suspect in deadly & tragic hit-and-run" (Andrew Shilling - March 7)?

Hundreds of other New Yorkers from all walks of life have passed on without a word from either Weprin or Adams. If Weprin and Adams were truly compassionate, they would have pushed for harsher legislation changing the misdemeanor charge for leaving the scene of an accident to a class C felony years earlier.

Some politicians appear willing do or say anything for a headline. This is a real crime.
