Bronx News Roundup Oct. 15

The New York Times has an interactive map showing who in the City Council supports a term limit extension, and who doesn't. The Times sums it up this way: "Much of the support comes from the Bronx, while much of the opposition is from Queens."

The trial of a man accused of shooting dead an off-duty cop in Pelham Bay in 2005 starts today. Steven Armento could face life in prison without the possibility of parole. Armento's co-defendant, Lillo Brancato Jr., an actor who appeared in several episodes of the "Sopranos," and the film "A Bronx Tale," will be tried separately. Officer Daniel Enchautegui was killed when he went to investigate to burglary at his neighbor's house. See here and here.

State Senator Jose M. Serrano, representatives from the New York Civil Liberties Union, and others, are holding a press conference at 1 p.m. today, to protest a new Department of Education policy which makes it easier for military recruiters to access high school students' personal information.

Last week, Congressman Joseph Crowley (Bronx/Queens) helped broker a nuclear pact between the United States and India.

P.S. 5, an elementary school in Mott Haven, is giving its students cheap, indestructible laptops. The program is sponsored by Teaching Matters and the DOE. The idea is to get students onto a shared network so they can do school work at home.

JFK takes on Clinton in high school football this Saturday. The Daily News is calling the game a "battle for borough supremacy." Both teams are 5-1 so far this season.

  1. On Wed Feb 23, a jury denied Juanita Young's suit vs. the city of NY and 4 police officers. How come no one is talking about the revenge factor that this woman is using to sue NYC. She won her case for her son being killed, that does not mean she can call 911 all the time and then sue the city everytime she or her family cause a disturbance. Facts are facts and she lost her case due to lack of evidence.
