The New York Attorney General’s Office of Special Investigation (OSI) has opened an investigation into the death of a civilian, who died on Friday, May 13, 2022, following an encounter with members of the New York City Police Department (NYPD).
On the evening of Friday, May 13, 2022, in the Hunts Point neighborhood of the Bronx, NY, officers encountered a civilian allegedly holding what appeared to be a handgun. After directing him to drop the gun, the officers fired. The civilian was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The NYPD recovered an air gun at the scene.
Pursuant to New York State Executive Law Section 70-b, OSI assesses every incident reported to it where a police officer or a peace officer, including a corrections officer, may have caused the death of a person, by an act or omission. Under the law, the officer may be on-duty or off-duty, and the decedent may be armed or unarmed. Also, the decedent may or may not be in custody or incarcerated. If OSI’s assessment indicates an officer caused the death, OSI proceeds to conduct a full investigation of the incident.
Mario D’Agostino, who passed away June 14, 2020, was a true leader in his community in the Bronx and left his mark on the neighborhood and everyone, who had the pleasure of knowing him.
Mario was an honorable man, who changed people’s lives with his beautiful mind, strong work ethic, positive outlook on life and investing in his favorite part of New York City, the Bronx.
You should know that in one of his first public appearances, after having resigned as Governor for New York State, Andrew Cuomo will be visiting the South Bronx. His visit to the Bronx is to meet with Members of “The New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, which I preside over.
As you know, last summer Governor Cuomo resigned, when he was accused and practically abandoned by all his friends, politicians, and community groups, whom he had helped in the past. These so-called friends, and groups that were all too happy to kiss his ring, joined the “cancel culture” environment, that plaques us all, without due process, they washed their hands with a dismissive attitude, sending the message “Crucify him, crucify him”.
Several courts and judges have dismissed the allegations of “sexual harassment” against Governor Cuomo. With this episode behind him, Governor Cuomo has begun to visit and make public appearances by visiting different faith-based organizations and community groups.
It is very important for you to know that Governor Cuomo’s first public visit was to “God’s Battalion of Prayer Temple” in East Flatbush, Brooklyn on Sunday March 06, 2022. His next planned visit is to the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization” in the South Bronx.
You should also know that in a recent poll, Governor Cuomo, without being a candidate nor having announced his political aspirations, has polled with just four (4) points behind Governor Kathy Hochul.
As you know, Governor Hochul was a friend and she was handpicked by Cuomo to be his Lieutenant Governor. However, she was among one of the first to throw him under the bus, in the midst of the allegations, launched against him.
I imagine that those four (4) points will evaporate very soon and Governor Hochul will have to consider asking Governor Cuomo for his support, if she wishes to be officially elected by the people to the governorship.
As President of the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, I am looking forward to hosting Governor Cuomo on Thursday, March 17, 2022. We welcome him to the South…

Is your website safe? In other words, does it use HTTPS? If not, then you need to take action now.
HTTPs is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol used to send data between your browser and the website you are visiting.

The New York Giants are a pretty popular NFL team, despite their poor recent history, but they don’t represent all of NY.
New York has three NFL teams, the Giants, Jets, and Buffalo Bills. There is an old rivalry between two of the three, and the reason the third team is not involved is that they play in a different division.
The rivalry is shared between the Bills and the Jets, who both play in the AFC East. They square up against each other twice every season as a result. Most Bills fans can be found in upstate New York, with the Jets faithful mostly in the NYC area.
The Giants do their thing in the NFC East, mostly poorly, and, for the most part, have their fans in New Jersey.
The rivalry between the Bills and the Jets is not simply based on the fact that they play in the dame division, it is also due to the contrast between the greater New York metropolitan area and the rest of New York state.
The Bills are the only team actually located in NY, which is another factor. But their biggest rivalry is not even with the Jets, it’s with the Miami Dolphins.
The Jets, on the other hand, count the New England Patriots as their fiercest rivals.
It would help the Bills/Jets rivalry if they…
