The Nassau County Police Department has filed departmental charges against Officer Anthony DiLeonardo, almost three years after he shot an unarmed cabdriver in Huntington Station after a night of drinking off-duty. Department officials could ultimately fire DiLeonardo following a hearing scheduled for Feb. 10, according to a source with knowledge of the department's plans.
In "Bid to discipline cop" [News, Jan. 31], Nassau County Police Officer Anthony DiLeonardo's 2012 salary was given as $110,000. One of the reasons our taxes are so high is the out-of-control salaries of government workers.
In business, labor is often the highest expense. Wake up, fellow New Yorkers, and campaign for more cost-efficient government.
Joseph DiBenedetto, Massapequa
