The long reach of injustice

Suffolk District Attorney Dan Conley has no problem with the plan by a newly elected member of the Governor’s Council to seek posthumous pardons for Louie Greco and Henry Tameleo, framed for a gangland murder they didn’t commit.

Now, given that Tameleo was the reputed consigliere of the Mafia and Greco was considered a mob associate by the FBI, it might seem that a prosecutor would not be predisposed to clearing their names. But Conley long ago demonstrated he would not let reputations get in the way of justice.
