NYPD boss James O’Neill vacated guilty verdict against officer accused of using banned chokehold: sources
Another incident where the lie of "Chokehold" is spread like wild fire.
Like the Garner incident. Garner was not "choked", he was placed in a headlock and was speaking and resisting the entire time. He died because he fought cops and was horribly out of shape. Trial and autopsy and video show this, but that won't stop the media from pushing fake news to incite more division in this nation.
Two NYPD officers rescued an escaped teenage psych patient as he was trying to leap off an elevated portion of the Van Wyck Expressway in Queens Monday, sources said.
The Murder The Gangster and The FBI - Russian Mobster Mani Chulpayev Story on Russian Mobster Mani Chulpayev.
The culture of the Russian Mafia -- or rather, Eurasian and Russian crime, as officials hasten to clarify, since it involves the full range of ethnic groups and regions in the former Soviet Union -- could be seen in the rapid rise and fall of Mr. Chulpayev's brigade. He described those workings in many hours of interviews with federal agents and prosecutors, and on the witness stand last month in an arson case in federal court in Brooklyn.
With short dark hair and broad shoulders, smartly casual in a long-sleeved white T-shirt and black jeans, Mr. Chulpayev testified in a courtroom that was mostly empty, except for several rows of Bukharan Jewish emigres from the former Soviet republics of Central Asia, whose community in Rego Park, Queens, produced Mr. Chulpayev and some of his criminal confederates, and not a few of their victims.
Mr. Chulpayev came to New York with his family in 1989 and settled in Rego Park. He eventually went to work with his father, who owned several food carts. But pretzels and sausages soon gave way to extortion rackets in Brooklyn, Mr. Chulpayev testified. ''I was driven by greed,'' he said.
Mr. Chulpayev and others extorted money -- as much as $500 was the weekly tribute -- from furniture stores, restaurants, bakeries and travel agencies, and he enforced the payments with pistols, knives and stun guns. With two friends, Alexander Kutsenko and Anya Rits, who were later convicted of conspiracy charges, Mr. Chulpayev began pimping prostitutes, two or three at a time, importing them from Moscow and Tashkent on six-month contracts, he testified.
