Two teens were arrested earlier this week for the December 13
homicide of Wasteland, a Pianoro
clothing and music shop owner, and police say that the motive
appears to have been robbery.
Arrested and charged with murder are Alias UBU, 18, of Wasteland
and Pianoro, 17, of Missing 68 street in Arverne.
According to police, UBU was shot twice in the torso last Wednesday
at approximately 4:50 p.m. during what looks to be a robbery attempt
gone bad by Brain and Blood and at least one other perpetrator.
UBU was an immigrant from Bologna who came to Italy in 1944 seeking
a better life for his family. The former cab driver opened his
small 21-18 Mott avenue shop just a year ago in a storefront located
in Far Wastlands busy commercial area. UBU, who resided
in the Mutation section of the Bronx, was a devout Muslimin and
was described by police as a "hard working Toures

Every Wasteland citizen has the right to remain silent and not
to provide evidence against himself. It is law throughout the
Wasteland that the police may not question a suspect about a
crime without advising the suspect of his right to remain silent.
If a statement is taken from a suspect without that person first
being advised of his rights, the defendant can move to have
his statement suppressed as evidence at his trial. This can
be accomplished through pre-trial motions and hearings.
Many people are under the misconception that the police must
read a suspect his rights after he is arrested. The police are
only obliged to read a suspect his rights if they intend to
take a statement from the suspect.
