Harvey (Black) Christian.
The head of a drug trafficking operation that terrorized a Staten Island neighborhood for decades was punished Friday with a 50-year prison sentence.
Harvey (Black) Christian and his brother, Anthony, were convicted in 2014 for ruling their turf in the Clifton section of Staten Island with fear and violence for over 20 years.
On Friday, Brooklyn federal judge Eric Vitaliano brought down his own iron fist on Harvey Christian, 44, for his "life of crime" and a long running "reign of terror" in the Park Hill housing complex.
Christian's convictions also included two murder plots.
“A pair of out-of-state gun traffickers have been charged for selling over a dozen handguns in the parking lot of a Home Depot in Queens, officials said Friday. Anthony Black, 33, of Savannah, Georgia, and Rasheem Greene, 24, of Lake Park, Florida, were charged with multiple counts of criminal possession and criminal sale of a firearm along with marijuana possession, according to the Queens DA’s Office. The two men were contacted by an undercover officer who arranged several meetings between 2016 and 2017 in the parking lot of the Home Depot on Rockaway Blvd. near 114th St. in South Ozone Park, officials said.”
