Joe DeCicco is a retired New York City Detective who originally attended college to practice electrical engineering.
After working as a lighting designer for several years, life circumstances decreed that he join the New York City Police Department in 1973. He has spent more than half his service in plainclothes; including over four years as an Organized Crime Control Bureau narcotics investigator, one year with Brooklyn Central Robbery and more than three years with the Brooklyn South Detective Division assigned to the 62nd Squad in Bensonhurst. After spending twenty years on the streets of New York, Joe happily retired with over twenty awards and decorations on July 4th 1993, uniquely celebrating his own independence day and combining it with our Nation Holiday.
Joe explains that his writings come from an inner need to share his experiences with others in a well-defined attempt to show that, “The Job”, is not a vocation but an avocation that spans all the nuances of the human spirit. His entertaining works show sometimes complex personalities of those who choose to be the daily guardians of our society, while fulfilling the public’s ongoing interest with police work.
Joe has been a featured guest on American Heroes Talk Radio, San Dimas, California and Blue Line Radio, Wilmington North Carolina.
Joe DeCicco now resides in the coastal area of Wilmington North Carolina with his wife and is a licensed private investigator.

What are the roots and causes of Black on Black violence? And what is to be done about it?
Each year, roughly 7,000 blacks are murdered; 94 per cent of the time, the murderer is another Black person. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, between 1976 and 2011, there were 279,384 black murder victims .The 94 per cent figure suggests that 262,621 were murdered by other blacks.
Though blacks are 13 per cent of the national U.S. population, they account for more than 50 per cent of homicide victims. Nationally, the black homicide victimization rate is six times that of whites, and in some cities it is 32 times that of whites. Blacks are also disproportionately victimized by violent personal crimes, such as assault and robbery.

We have a history of protests in the summer in America. History is our measurement for change. Has things changed in america? Racism is alive and well and being militarized!
"If we do not know history it is as if we were born yesterday"
How the movement for civil rights has changed from sit-ins to the fire this time. How the waterhouses and policed dogs of the 60's has been repalaced by rubber bullets and flash grenades. Cointelpro is alive and well in Ferguson, Missouri with Agent Provocatuers on hand.
"COINTELPRO" was the FBI's secret program to undermine the popular upsurge which swept the country during the 1960s. Though the name stands for "Counterintelligence Program," the targets were not enemy spies. The FBI set out to eliminate "radical" political opposition inside the US. When traditional modes of repression (exposure, blatant harassment, and prosecution for political crimes) failed to counter the growing insurgency, and even helped to fuel it, the Bureau took the law into its own hands and secretly used fraud and force to sabotage constitutionally- protected political activity. Its methods ranged far beyond surveillance, and amounted to a domestic version of the covert action for which the CIA has become infamous throughout the world.
