Whether it’s misrepresenting the law of treason or the applicability of Miranda warnings, Fox News contributors on “Fox and Friends” this week spent a lot of time making a false legal distinction between citizens and non-citizens in the discussion of the arrest of Faisal Shahzad, the man accused of planting an SUV bomb in New York City’s Times Square on May 1, as I show in this video.

KILLER ON THE STRIP ; THE DOLL MURDER

In Palm Beach, a determined cop solves the murder of prostitute Lucy Pate five years later, when he connects Lucy’s case with another case that was overlooked at the time. The prostitute who survived agreed to help and identified her attacker. In 1989, socialite Susan Doll was found beaten, raped, and strangled in Colorado. Investigators extracted DNA from a semen stain, but had no suspect to match it against–until 1995 when a local landlord found 25 pairs of panties stuffed into a furnace.

FRIENDS OF THE FAMILY: The Inside Story of the Mafia Cops Case

Part 1 of 2.

In this interview, I sit down with Michael Vecchione, the Chief of the Rackets Division in the Kings County District Attorney’s Office, to discuss his new book “FRIENDS OF THE FAMILY: The Inside Story of the Mafia Cops Case.”

Friends of the Family is out on May 12, 2009.

Book Description
Detectives Louie Eppolito and Steve Caracappa were the most corrupt and dangerous cops in American history. When they retired in the early 1990s, they left behind a pile of bodies—and for more than a decade, it looked like they were going to get away with it.

As highly decorated NYPD detectives with access to the department’s most sensitive information, they sold their badges to the Mafia—and became murderers for the mob. Eventually they retired to Las Vegas, believing they had put their lives of murder and mayhem safely behind them. And they would have lived happily ever after, if not for one dedicated cop at the end of his career and an assistant district attorney. Detective Tommy Dades and Brooklyn Assistant DA Mike Vecchione turned this seemingly unsolvable cold-blooded case into one of the great law-and-order stories in the annals of New York City. And for the first time, in this book, Dades and Vecchione tell the whole inside story of the investigation.

For Detective Tommy Dades, the case began with a phone call from a distraught mother who just happened to mention an almost forgotten meeting that had taken place years earlier. Dades and Mike Vecchione had performed cold-case miracles before, but this one seemed impossible. Together, quietly and tenaciously, they began to uncover the hideous truth. A highly secret joint state and federal task force began building a body-by-body case against an incredible array of characters, from one of the most viciously insane Mafia bosses in history—who wanted to kill people he dreamed were plotting against him—to the one-eyed Jew who knew all the secrets. As the cold case got front-page-headline hot, Dades and Vecchione encountered an unexpected obstacle: the federal prosecutor plotted to take the case—and those headlines—away from Brooklyn.

For the first time, the two men who brought this incredible story to life reveal the epic confrontations that occurred behind the scenes and led to a stunning courtroom announcement—and came perilously close to destroying the case against the Mafia cops.

Friends of the Family is the complete, inside story of the historic case that rocked the world of law enforcement.
