It's dangerous outside, why don't you kids stay in the building and play.

Eighty-two years ago today in Harlem a group of children came face to face with gangland when they encountered twenty-four year old Anthony Sancione in the hall way of a tenement with two bullets in his head. The kids fetched a policeman who found that Anthony was still alive. An ambulance was called but the wounded man died en-route to the hospital. His record showed that he had been arrested numerous times but never convicted.

"The kids fetched a policeman..."

I guess that was before the whole Stop Snitchin' campaign got started. ;)

Yes, this was a result of the "If you find a dead guy tell a cop!" Campaign. Popular in Manhattan, the "Stop Snitchin'" was a Brooklyn thing during the Murder Inc. years.
