Every Cliché Has Its Element of Truth (Update Or Not)

In purely classic mob style someone in Brooklyn has been Sleeping with the fishes.

Police are trying to identify the body of a man who washed up along a Brooklyn beach wrapped in plastic bags with his arms tied around his back, his feet in "cement shoes."

New York Police Department Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said Tuesday the victim had his feet "submerged in poured concrete."

He said it was obviously a homicide and officials were investigating. The man has a large tattoo of the Virgin Mary holding a rose and police hoped it would help identify him.

And obviously Catholic, completing the picture.

I'm going out on a limb here, I suspect he may be Italian, does that make me racist?

Update: Its official, I was totally 100% wrong!

A student found the remains of gang member Peter Martinez on Manhattan Beach in Brooklyn this week.

It is thought that strong currents swept the 28-year-old's body to shore.

Police sources told US media that Martinez was a member of the G Stone Crips crew.Speaking of Crips....

But hey at least I was right about "gang related" just like totally the wrong gang, I guess the Italians can take it as imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.

5 Racist? How about prejudice. Just look that word up and be happy you can tell the difference between this and that. Cheers, Guido!
