The NYPD released photos Sunday of two other men they want to find and question as part of the investigation and asked for the public’s help in identifying them. Mieses’ family, meanwhile, says he is the real victim. “All of his ribs are fractured. His lungs are so badly bruised that he’s still on a ventilator,” Yolanda Santiago, his mother, told CNN affiliate WCBS. Mieses’ wife, Dayana, told CNN affiliate WBZ that he got off his bike to help the SUV driver. She blamed Lien. “He got scared; he peeled off, and he paralyzed my husband on the way,” she said. ‘We could not have done anything differently’ Lien was treated at a hospital for slashes to his face. “My husband was forced under the circumstances to take the actions that he did in order to protect the lives of our entire family,” his wife said. “We know in our hearts that we could not have done anything differently, and we believe that anyone faced with this sort of grave danger would have taken the same course of action in order to protect their family.” It was Lien’s wife who made the last of three 911 calls the family placed during the incident. Bikers have called for Lien to be charged. “That wasn’t fear, that was aggression — he ran over three bikes,” a man who identified himself as Jose told reporters Thursday night. “Are we saying, if you feel nervous you can kill somebody? You can paralyze somebody? I think we need to charge him immediately.” Angry netizens have turned on the bikers, casting them in a bad light.

Falcone is banned during that period from serving as an officer or director of Fidelity & Guaranty Life and its subsidiaries or any New York-licensed insurer, as well as participating in the selection of any such officers or directors, the New York State Department of Financial Services said. Fidelity & Guaranty Life is a unit of Harbinger Group, which is majority-owned by Falcones Harbinger Capital. The insurance unit is planning to sell shares to the public. Falcone is also forbidden from exercising direct or indirect control over the management, policies, operations and investment funds of Fidelity & Guaranty Life or any other New York-licensed insurers, according to a news release from the state agency. The ban also applies to employees of Harbinger Capital Partners. A representative for Falcone did not respond to a request for comment. Falcone admitted wrongdoing and agreed to pay an $18 million fine to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in August to settle civil fraud charges that he improperly used Harbinger hedge-fund money and favored some of his investors. The agreement was the first to require a defendant to admit wrongdoing since SEC Chairman Mary Jo White announced a much tougher policy in June that would require such admissions more often.

Best Twitter Reactions to New York Jets’ Week 5 Win
More importantly, though, Smith’s passes landed only in the hands of New York’s receivers and not in those of the Atlanta secondary. Topunctuate the evening, Smith authored a 55-yard drive to put the Jets in field-goal range with only seconds left in the game. Geno Smith last night had his 3rd game-winning drive in 4th quarter. MOST in the NFL this season. NFL on ESPN (@ESPNNFL) October 8, 2013 Smith’s performance Monday Night likely solidified his title as the Jets’ starting quarterback, at least for now. Some Tweets poked fun at former quarterback Mark Sanchez , who has been omnipresent on the New York sideline this season. Mark Sanchez was hoping for a challenge on that Geno Smith TD pass. darren rovell (@darrenrovell) October 8, 2013 After the debacle that was the Jets’ Week 4 matchup with the Tennessee Titans , many Jets fans were calling for Rex Ryan to bench Smith. Mike Greenberg of ESPN, however, wanted to remind everyone that all rookies experience episodes of first-year growing pains. So, next time Geno Smith plays like a rookie, and he will, can we not start talking about benching him again? Thanks. #Jets Mike Greenberg (@Espngreeny) October 8, 2013 Once again New York’s defense looked tough. The Jets now have the second-best defense in the NFL , and it certainly showed Monday night. Gang Green sacked Matt Ryan four times for a combined loss of 29 yards. No matter what, give this much to the Jets: Their defense is NOOOOOOO JOKE!!! Atlanta had better wake up. Their season could be in jeopardy.

Eventually she became Baby Hope because they hoped and prayed theyd solve the case, Giorgio said. He was instrumental in organizing a burial for the girl in 1993. Hundreds attended the funeral. The girl was dressed in a white frock and buried in a white coffin. Associated Press Police made a new appeal to the public for information regarding the child this summer, and their efforts were successful: After a push by the police this summer to find new information about the case, they received a tip from a woman who thought she might know the sister of Baby Hope, said the official, who was familiar with the investigation. Using the information the woman provided, the police interviewed several people and eventually confirmed the mothers identity through scientific evidence, the official said. . . .
