    First of all is the NYPD that bored that they would have to chase someone for stealing rocks???? How in the world is that punishable by death??? Then to bill a dead man is just sad they should be ashamed!!!

    Talk about insult to injury. If the family would have paid it, I bet the city would have accepted it.

  • They meant to send that ish..
