I saw this in a Movie

Sometime my people surprise me. I'm just assuming they were black because only black people would do this....

"NEW YORK - Two men wheeled a dead man through the streets in an office chair to a check-cashing store and tried to cash his Social Security check before being arrested on fraud charges, police said.

David J. Dalaia and James O'Hare pushed Virgilio Cintron's body from the Manhattan apartment that O'Hare and Cintron shared to Pay-O-Matic, about a block away, spokesman Paul Browne said witnesses told police.

"The witnesses saw the two pushing the chair with Cintron flopping from side to side and the two individuals propping him up and keeping him from flopping from side to side," Browne said.

The men left Cintron's body outside the store, went inside and tried to cash his $355 check, Browne said. The store's clerk, who knew Cintron, asked the men where he was, and O'Hare told the clerk they would go and get him, Browne said.

A police detective who was having lunch at a restaurant next to the check-cashing store noticed a crowd forming around Cintron's body, and "it's immediately apparent to him that Cintron is dead," Browne said.

The detective called uniformed New York Police Department officers at a nearby precinct. Emergency medical technicians arrived as O'Hare and Dalaia were preparing to wheel Cintron's body into the check-cashing store, Browne said. Police arrested Dalaia and O'Hare there, he said.

Cintron's body was taken to a hospital morgue. The medical examiner's office told police it appeared Cintron, 66, had died of natural causes within the previous 24 hours, Browne said.

"He was deceased in the apartment when he was removed by these two," Browne said.

Dalaia and O'Hare, both 65, were being held by police and faced check fraud charges, Browne said.

A call to a telephone number listed for Cintron at the apartment he shared with O'Hare went unanswered Tuesday evening. Police said they didn't have an address for Dalaia or attorney information for him or O'Hare." {source}

I swear they got this idea from that movie Weekend at Bernies But wheeling him down the street? that's going a bit far. They must have been high to think they were going to get away with it.

Dead bodies are just creepy, disgusting and smelly!!! In spite of that, how in the hell did they REALLY think they would get away with pushing one down the street unnoticed??? LOL...smh @ my Black folk...because you just knoooooow they were Black alright!

Most of us New Yorkers will ignore just about anything, but a dead body being pushed in a chair down a street would not go unnoticed!

Yeah, this was all over radio news yesterday, he in Texas. I was thinking they had to be black too. I think it's funny how we link certain situations and crimes to certain people.
