In a city known for wild, late-night behavior, merely tossing speakers, lamps, a phone, ice chest and vase out a second floor room at the Hotel Shelley, 844 Collins. Ave., might not have drawn much attention.The gunshots did at least $1500 damage to a store nearby. So, assuming they are tried and convicted, do they still get to work for TSA? They destroyed $400 worth of furniture. They shot a gun in the middle of South Beach. (South Miami Beach isn't Manhattan, but it is a pretty high-density area.)
But according to an incident report, a front desk clerk and security guard called police about 11:18 p.m. after they heard one gun shot, followed by three to five more after a few seconds. When the clerk went back inside the hotel, a guest told him someone was throwing furniture and bric-a-brac out the window of room 217, where Piccolella and Puccio were staying the night.
These are the people "keeping you safe" or whatever the hell they do at TSA. "They're from the government, and they're here to help."
