RIP Harrison Carnevale

NEW JULY 9 - MEET HARRY'S EXECUTIONER!Two years before the July 1st police chase, Albany County District Attorney David Soares had an opportunity to put her in State Prison, but passed. In August of 2005, she led police on yet another high speed chase that went on for twenty minutes. Police say she blew through 26 red lights and stop signs and narrowly missed hitting 24 people. They charged her with 24 felonies and reckless endangerment.

When she got to jail, she allegedly told someone that when she got out, she planned to put two bullets in the judge's forehead.



"Huh, that's interesting," said I upon watching the TV news that Albany police had called off a car chase "minutes before a horrible crash." Puzzling. Why scramble to announce the chase was called off? (Scratches head). Until this morning: Channel 10 reporting the dead man's identity: a gifted, loved, respected young teenager. His family name: Carnevale! Now it all adds up!
"(Harrison) Carnevale graduated from Shaker High School just four days ago.

He was giving a co-worker a lift home from his job at an Albany restaurant when he was hit, Camille Carnevale, his sister, said Sunday night.

Camille Carnevale said it was typical of her brother to go out of his way to help people. She said his smile and outgoing personality drew people to him.

"We used to say he could make friends in the grocery store," Camille Carnevale said.

The teenager's popularity was in evidence Sunday night at a candlelight vigil held in his memory at Ganser-Smith Park in Menands. More than 200 people turned out to remember his crazy haircuts, his video camera and the unusual outfits he wore to turn heads.

Classmates gathered in a circle telling stories as the crowd laughed and sniffled. Roses and 33 lighted candles were placed next to a poster board of photos depicting a teenager with long hair spreading out from underneath a baseball cap, making goofy faces for his friends.

Friends said Carnevale finished high school a year early so he could move to Los Angeles to study film at Loyola Marymount University."[Times Union]
Now, about those "tough questions." Once again, Channel 6 is out of the loop. They buried a censored account of the incident featuring video shot shortly after the crash. Seems on weekends nobody is around to ask those tough questions. But WRGB is heavily promoting an upcoming piece where one of their reporters proves incapable of driving a car and talking on a cellphone at the same time, something millions of Americans do (illegal in some states, but they do it anyway) every single day! I would suggest Channel 6's reporter take a look at Single Mobile Females.

  1. Maybe I missed it but how does the name Carnevale fit in?
    Just wondering.

  2. I think the Carnevale family was a big name in Albany back in the sixties? Didn't they own a supermarket that was torched?

  3. Our current location is on Watervliet Avenue. This facility was previously Carnevale's Supermarket and after renovations looks wonderful! Gerald Guzik is the current principal of Harriet Gibbons High School.

  4. Looks like this young man had a promising career ahead. I agree with you, Dave. The police jumped ahead with that statement and then we find out someone was killed. Someone important?

  5. Why did Marianne Williams flee from the police? Why did Harry choose that route home putting him on an intersecting path? Why did such a bright star extinguish so early?

  6. THE POLICE ACTED IRRESPONSIBLE. THEY SHOULD HAVE CALLED FOR BACKUP AND RUN THIS IDIOT WOMAN OFF THE ROAD OR SHOT OUT HER TIRES. TOO BAD THEIR ALL CHICKEN EVER SINCE THEY SHOT THAT GUY BY ACCIDDENT. SO NOW THEY HAVE TO COVER THE BUTT AS SOON AS A INNOCENT PERSON IS INVOLVED.

  8. hi dave - it turns out i saw that same video on 6 and i thought the same thing you did. the woman is actually trying to send text messages while driving. if i was assembling the promo for that i would have added 'text messaging' graphics. i'm sure a lot of other viewers came to the same mistaken conclusion. that shows you how sloppy they are over at wrgb.

I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking.
