Daniel Cicciaro Sr. was infuriated when his teen's black killer was spared the maximum jail term Wednesday.

After the sentencing, Cicciaro pointed his finger at Aaron White (r.) and his mother Sonya, telling the pair "F--- you," defense lawyer Frederick Brewington said.
A white Long Island man was infuriated when his teen's black killer was spared the maximum jail term Wednesday delivered an indirect death threat toward the defendant's son.

"Let's see what happens when Aaron White gets shot! Let's see what the laws are then!" raged Daniel Cicciaro Sr. after John White, 54, was sentenced to two-to-four years for the August 2006 shooting of Daniel Jr.

The sentence is well below the 15-year maximum that White faced after being convicted of manslaughter for killing Cicciaro during a racially charged showdown at the foot of White's Miller Place driveway.

After the sentencing, Cicciaro pointed his finger at Aaron White and his mother Sonya, telling the pair "F--- you," defense lawyer Frederick Brewington said.

The insult, coupled with the threat, led Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer to arrange added police protection at White's home.

The stunned Cicciaro family and their friends greeted the lesser sentence with tears, gasps and a flurry of expletives.

"You let that mother------ walk?" shouted an incensed Cicciaro, his words echoing in the Riverhead courthouse as he continued an obscenity-laced tirade."

The dead teen's mother Joanne - who earlier spoke of never holding her grandchild, or dancing at her son's wedding - leaned forward and wept.

"The system sucks," she said later before mockingly adding, "Poor John White."

Her husband, of Port Jefferson Station, angrily suggested that racial politics were behind the lenient sentence for White.

"As long as you're black and there's a problem at the foot of your driveway, you can shoot my son in the face?" Cicciaro fumed.

Inside court, Cicciaro called White a "coward" and told the killer - along with Suffolk County Court Judge Barbara Kahn - that "even the death penalty would be a light sentence."

White, in turn, apologized for the fatal shooting.

"I broke a covenant with God in taking his life," White said, recalling the shooting that occurred after two carloads of white teens came to his home shouting racial slurs and looking to fight his son.

"I remain remorseful," he continued, his voice nearing a whisper. "That's it..."

White was led away in handcuffs, though his lawyers want him released on bail pending an appeal.

Brewington argued during White's trial that the road construction foreman was responding to "a modern day lynch mob" on the night of the shooting.

The white teens who accompanied Daniel Cicciaro Jr. to White's home were riled by a bogus claim that Aaron White had threatened to rape the younger sister of one of their friends.

John White, convicted Dec. 22 of second-degree manslaughter and a weapons charge, claimed his gun accidentally discharged after Cicciaro lunged at him.

Prosecutors argued that White pointed the gun and shot Cicciaro - from 3 inches away - after the teen slapped at the gun.

"I'd like to express our deepest gratitude at the destruction of the inferior $pic&niqqer race, and I'm especially pleased to report it's destroying itself without our help. To all you gangs, hoodlums, drug pushers and users, and other worthless niqqers killing each other, we'd like to thank y'all for saving us the time, trouble and legality for the final chapter of riddin' y'all off the face of the Earth. Your solution to our problem is greatly appreciated

Ni66ers and $pics are the people we just can't stand; Ni66ers and $pics are the people who should be banned! And if they move next to my home, (next to my home) It would make me frow-ow-ow-n, 'Cause niqqers and $pics drive the property values down! Maybe the Jews who lived there weren't so bad; If ******* move in, you'll see my house in a real-estate ad! And don't you move next to my-i-i home, It would make me sa-aaaa-ad, Cause niqqers and $pics are the ones who smell real bad.

3STRIKES, you are a FOOL. And your ONE-SIDED and IGNORANT comments show that you obviously dont get out of THE BUBBLE you liv ein very often. You couldnt possibly be living in todays society, if you are able to simply class ALL black people in the same group. In the Brooklyn, that I know and live in, I am surrounded by professional BLACK PEOPLE. From RNs(registered nurses, in case you dont know what that means) MDs (medical doctors) LAWYERS, ADMINISTRATORS, OPERATIONS MANAGERS, DENTISTS, ANALYSTS, MBA holders, Masters Degree holders, PHD holders...and I could go ON AND ON FOR DAYS! The black people that I KNOW strived through all the politics and BULLSH*T that the worls tries to offer us as the "minority" But until the day you are THOUGHT OF and TREATED AS LESS OF A PERSON, just for being BORN with a certain SKIN COLOR...UNTIL the day you look around and your communities are riddled with crime, drugs, lack of police presence (until someone gets shot), poor schools, harassment of your c

To come up with a horrendous guilty verdict, that jury has to be 12 of the most idiotic, moronic people that have walked the face of the earth. They all should have the word "MORON" stamped on their heads. Mr. White had every right to do what he did in that he was defending himself, his property and his family. When you have an angry mob of young white boys bearing down on you and your property with weapons, forget about dialing 911....you take matters into your own hands and that is what Mr. White did and I support him ALL THE WAY!! He did nothing wrong, he should have been found not guilty and he should be a free man and completely exonerated. There was a legitimate threat to his son and when you go after family, you are playing with fire and that 17 year old punk kid got what he deserved. I don't feel sorry for the kid because he went for the gun instead of doing the smart thing and backing away. He went for the gun and he paid for it, I have no pity for him nor his family.

Racism has no place at all in our society...........black, white, hispanic, asian..........it's mean, it's hateful and it's flat out disgusting and wrong. Anybody who is down with racism, the only thing I have to say is to get a life, get a brain, go dig yourself a ****, jump in and rot.

Anyone who tries to answer Narcissistsob is wasting their time. Anyone who spends this much time and energy hating and spewing like Narcissistsob has (he has been blogging on this issue consistently for days) is obviously deranged. There is no need to reply and he should be ignored. My biggest surprise is that the Daily News allows this offensive behavior on their website, and I wonder if the editors share these primitive views. It is this type of barbarism that got this young man killed and I am sure more blood will shed over this matter. The saddest thing I can gather from this whole incident, it that the family of the young man killed still hasn't learned from their mistakes. If they would have trained their son to respect all people, he would still be here. They will lose much more before it is over. SAD!!!
