NYS will pay $5M - largest settlement ever in death of a state prisoner - after pathologist testified the victim was choked to death. Deal also calls for video cameras in prison where he died. A federal investigation is also underway. https://www.themarshallproject.org/2020/02/28/karl-taylor-died-in-a-new-york-prison-now-the-state-ha... via  @The Marshall Project

New video shows a Jeep that killed a boy walking to school He's the 6th pedestrian killed in 5 days, as the NYPD says 22 pedestrians were killed in 2020 through Feb. 26.  @Joe Cutrufo of  @Transportation Alternatives weighed in.  @Noah Goldberg,  @Thomas Tracy,  @larry mcshane write https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/nyc-crime/ny-child-struck-east-new-york-brooklyn-20200227-osj2h...

"I'll lead by example when I'm not leading anymore"

 @Ydanis Rodriguez ! "I will lead by example in 22 months," says de Blasio about his plans for a carless post-mayoralty, pledging again he will not own a car after leaving office & says he'll never own one again, after saying he can't limit his car use now b/c of his security & schedule & such.

David Ourlicht, a plaintiff on the Floyd v City of New York lawsuit where a judge found stop-and-frisk unconstitutional, sued the city over a stop-and-frisk (and arrest) AGAIN in 2018, this time under de Blasio. He settled the case for $10k this month. https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/ny-stop-and-frisk-brooklyn-lawsuit-unlawful-arrest-settlement-2...

“The former New York mayor forgot to hang up on a Daily News reporter Wednesday and, thinking he was off the line, started trash-talking ex-Gov. George Pataki while complaining he only has ‘five friends left.’” https://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/ny-giuliani-berates-pataki-friends-20200226-vsczidr3hvegnh... by  @Chris Sommerfeldt

More turnover at the Bureau of Prisons. Director Kathleen Hawk Sawyer will be replaced by Michael Carvajal.
Sawyer said in remarks to Congress late last year that turnover at the top was one of the main reasons why BOP is such a mess.

Moment of intrigue in trial of accused CIA leaker Josh Schulte. An MCC inmate testified he was involved in a contraband cellphone ring with Schulte and overheard the computer whiz saying "Russia had to help him in the things he was doing."

And yet he’s still going to the gym. Iron man!

De Blasio had arthroscopic meniscus surgery on the right side of his left knee Friday morning. "I'm a fan of modern medical science," he says on NY1. "I was able to start walking around the next day."

This is absolutely disgusting. Awful. Vile. How does  @Andrew Cuomo live with himself? This young man was tortured, beaten & killed himself in a NYS cage. When will the gov. issue a statement, order an investigation, DO SOMETHING?!

An inmate serving a life sentence in a prison outside Buffalo was brutally beaten by corrections officers hours before he killed himself, a new suit claims. https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/ny-wende-prison-suicide-suit-20200224-6yxv73a65vhzpjnosiqalkbel...

Hollywood producer turned sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, 67, was convicted of rape and sexual assault by a Manhattan jury. The disgraced defendant heard the verdict, along with his high-powered defense team, in a jam-packed courtroom. https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/manhattan/ny-harvey-weinstein-guilty-verdict-manhattan-trial-20...

The latest from the Harvey Weinstein trial:

Breaking: the jury wants to know what happens if they’re hung on counts 1 and 3—the predatory sexual assault counts—but unanimous on the others. They agree on Jessica Mann and Miriam Haleyi but not Annabella Sciorra.

The Weinstein jury has entered its fourth day of deliberations. The day got off to somewhat of a dramatic start following a harsh exchange between Donna Rotunno and Gloria Allred. Because again, no dull moments at this trial.

Boardwalk shop owner (Lola Star) called WNYC to ask Mayor de Blasio why city is allowing her to be evicted over massive rent hike. He claimed it's first he's heard of this-- news has been out since November. How is this possible? https://nypost.com/2019/11/24/boardwalk-shop-owner-in-new-fight-to-save-coney-islands-soul/?utm_sour... via  @New York Post Metro

The rules City Hall cites to justify the NYPD tagging along with Mayor de Blasio on the campaign trail aren't that cut and dry. https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/ny-mayor-nypd-presidential-campaign-expenses-20200121-n3pg4yqlw...

Why are New Yorkers picking up the tab for security detail for  @Mayor Bill de Blasio when he travels the country campaigning for  @Bernie Sanders “The rules are the rules” he tells  @The Brian Lehrer Show and A Daily Politics Podcast

James Dolan, as landlord of MSG, had every right to eject Charles Oakley in 2017. The ugly confrontation between security and the beloved Knick was a low point for the franchise. https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/ny-msg-dolan-oakley-20200219-4uxynwnigzb7pczbdbouxctdfi-story.html

Bloomberg so centrist he serves Eastern and Western bbq in North Carolina. Sacrilege!

“In North Carolina, you have Eastern and Western barbecue sauce, and at this event you have both. He’s a uniter!” said a Raleigh resident who said that she was undecided before the event. She took another bite... “I cemented my commitment to him today.” https://www.eater.com/2020/2/18/21140518/mike-bloomberg-campaign-spending-free-food-voting-democrat-...
