Maybe it was a bribe?

A top Department of Buildings inspector overrode a subordinate's worries that the crane on East 91st Street was unsafe before its fatal collapse, law-enforcement sources told The Post.

CRANE BIG WAS WARNED

Investigators want to know why the high-ranking inspector, Michael Carbone, let the Kodiak crane operate despite the subordinate's worry that the equipment, manufactured nearly 20 years ago, was too old and had undergone too much significant repair work, one source said.

The lower-ranking inspector wanted to bar the crane from the project. But Carbone overruled the employee's fears, and said that the crane was safe to operate, said the source.

Since the investigators are under the control of Commissar Death, perhaps what they have been ordered to find out is how to keep all employees above Carbone, up to Commissar Death from being named in the indictments.

Right? Commissar Death?

"Carbone"....that's an Italian name isn't it? (There are an awful lot of Italian names in the DOB).

Any mob ties Mr.Carbone?

The building industry is too damn mobbed up in NYC.

It historically started with some of the original Italian 5 families getting involved in the building trades.

The feds have got to look into an organized crime connection between the DOB, connected politicians and La Cosa Nostra(or whoever is running things these days)!

NO...we're not implying that all Italians are mobsters...so forget about the idea of trying to brand me a racist!
