IHAPPEN to know Joseph Ligambi (whom the media likes to refer to as "a/k/a Uncle Joe," even though anyone who truly knows him doesn't call him that). He is just like any other father or grandfather in our neighborhood - he's an actual person, not a movie character.

For the judge to deny him bail and say he's "a danger to the community" - which community would that be? (Would he like to go north and west of City Hall, then head south and tell us which one is most dangerous?)

To characterize a man based on what people see in movies and on TV is unconstitutional and derogatory to his family and nationality. How much of our tax dollars are being spent on this case?
