The NYPD sergeant union paid for the funeral of the man who helped the police



The NYPD sergeant union paid for the funeral of the man who helped the police

The NYPD sergeant union would pay for the funeral of a doorman who helped capture a man accused of punching a female policeman who was not on duty on a Manhattan subway and died a few minutes later, The Post said.

“This is a man who has just gone to work and is doing what is right in life – and that has finally cost him a fortune,” Association President Sergeant Benevolent Ed Mullins said on Thursday.

Angel Calderon, 54, left his job as a doorman on the Upper West Side late Monday to take the No. train. 1 to the city to his home in the Bronx.

When he descended on the platform at West 86th Street and Broadway stations, he met a man who allegedly had just repeatedly punched a 23-year-old policeman who was not on duty.

Calderon detained the man until police arrived at the station around midnight. He then tried to continue his journey to the Bronx, but was found on a dead train at 72nd Street station.

His family said they were not given a reason for death, and he had no health problems.

They said they were worried they would pay for his funeral because his sister had died a month earlier than COVID-19 and they had borrowed to pay for her property.

News that SBA took the tab made Angel’s 78-year-old mother cry, her brother, Lourdes Calderon, said.

“He started crying because he was happy,” said the sister. “An angel is my mother’s baby. There are five girls and Angel is her son.”

Mullins said the union would cut a $ 15,000 check into the funeral home to cover costs.

“This relieves a lot of our stress in this time of pain,” said Lourdes, who lives in New Jersey. “What a relief! With all that we have suffered with the death of my sister and now?”

Percy Freeman, 43, was arrested for punching police and stealing his bag, according to police and court documents. He was jailed on Rikers Island on a robbery charge.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
