Breaking News: Fatigate Resigns After Argument With Spiezio

Mount Vernon – It seems the drama continues in the Mount Vernon Police Department and the Thomas Administration. Our sources tell us that Acting Police Commissioner Ronald Fatigate has resigned after having a big argument with Deputy Police Commissioner Joseph Spiezio, late Wednesday morning.


While details are still sketchy, and we have yet to get an official statement from Commissioner Fatigate, the MVPD or the Thomas Administration, we have gotten several confirmations from those close to Fatigate.

Black Law Enforcement have been outspoken on the need for reform in the police department. “It’s unfortunate of the resignation of Acting Police Commissioner Fatigate,” Blacks In Law Enforcement of America NY Rep Damon K. Jones tells BW. “The only thing left is a full federal intervention of the day-to-day operations of the Mt. Vernon Police Department. It is now up to the federal government to do what our city elected officials have failed to do.”

Fatigate departure comes a day after the FBI announced its Westchester County Safe Streets Gang Task Force is stepping in to help solve several homicides in Mount Vernon, offering rewards of up to $5,000 in solving five slayings in the city between 2011 and 2016. A local group calling themselves the Mount Vernon Families For Justice recently held a rally demanding federal intervention in the solving of murders of their loved ones on the steps of City Hall, Feb 12th.

Sources in City Hall have spoken to BW about the ongoing friction between Fatigate and Spiezio for some time about Spiezio’s outlandish public remarks and statements on social media and the radio and inserting himself into homicide investigations. Sources close to Former Police Commissioner Robert “Bob” Kelly also spoke of the friction between Spiezio and Kelly before Kelly was fired.

Deputy Police Commissioner Sean Harris will become Acting Police Commissioner and Captain Adinaro has been transfered to parking authority.

Black Lives Don’t Matter In Mount Vernon

Too Many Unsolved Homicides with No Help from Police Department or City Officials

“I’ve been quiet for awhile preaching that Black Lives Matter, but for the first time and I’m not losing the spirit of who we are, but it’s a fact to me Black Lives don’t matter in Mount Vernon, not at all,” a very emotional Kevin Shaw Sr said at the rally. “I haven’t heard from nobody, not one time, nobody, no police officer, nobody never called me, since my son was murdered up here in Mount Vernon. I’ve been up here 15-20 times… I ain’t get one call, never since June 24, 2015 [18 months later]. Every time I come to Mount Vernon they say they are going to call… I can’t even get my son’s possessions from that night.” WATCH VIDEO
