What Is A Mobster's Life Worth?

New York City apparently has reached a tentative settlement with the survivors of five allegedly "mobbed-up victims who were whacked by NYPD Mafia Cops Louis Eppolito and Stephen Caracappa" as reported by John Marzulli for the Daily News: "the terms of the settlements remain confidential, but sources said each plaintiff will receive substantially less than the $5 million the city paid to each of the estates of victims Nicholas Guido and Israel Greenwald, who were not in the mob."

 

Eppolito and Caracappa were convicted in 2006 for multiple murders, and last year Brooklyn federal judge Raymond J. Dearie ruled that wrongful death lawsuits against the city by the victims' survivors may go to trial because "there was evidence to suggest the rubouts would not have occurred had Eppolito been kicked off the force or disciplined after he was 'caught red-handed' passing confidential police records to a mobster in 1984" as reported by Frank Donnelly for the Staten Island Advance:

 

 

The failure to discipline a detective who colludes with organized crime plainly courts the risk that that detective will do so again," wrote Dearie. "And it is likewise obvious that collusion between a police detective and organized crime might well lead, as it did in these cases, to unconstitutional harm to members of the public."

First, engaging in mob activity carries an obvious and known danger of getting whacked, and by participating in the Mafia with this knowledge the five so-called victims assumed the risk for their unfortunate fates which should preclude any wrongful death recovery by their survivors. These boys made their bed, and now they can lie in it.

Not sure.

 

Eppolito wrote Mafia Cop the Story of Am Honest Cop Whose Family Was the Mob. Thing is the mother of one of the guys they killed saw him on TV, remembered him looking for her son. Reported it to the FBI Strike Force...and to day they are guests of the federal government. One more case solved by the Galloping Dumbs.
