"Trial by Media" atmosphere
Police leaked confidential information, leading to a false narrative
No evidence pointed to Brandon
Witnesses were intimidated, threatened, beaten, and lost jobs
The alleged shooter had a known history of owning and selling firearms to minors
Witnesses admitted to lying to police and in court to get deals
June 21st, 2013: Brandon was hit by a police car. He broke his wrist, suffered a concussion, and temporary memory loss.
August 4th, 2016: Brandon settled with the City of Philadelphia.
October 24th, 2017: Two groups of friends got into an argument, when a gun was pulled and 3 shots were fired, killing Salvatore DiNubile (16) and Brandon’s friend, Caleer Miller (16).
The alleged gunman, Nick Torelli (15), made over 20 calls to the other kids who witnessed the shooting, immediately signed a proffer, and named Brandon to save himself.
The police then leaked Brandon's photo and address on twitter. An Internal Affairs review admitted wrongdoing and two officers received disciplinary action. That night, the Olivieri's home was "riddled with bullets." Brandon then turned himself in fearing for his family's safety.
March 30th, 2019 (week of Brandon's sentencing): an argument broke out at a Phillies tailgate over Sal's death, and Nicholas Flacco (20) was killed. He is the son of the Chief Inspector for Internal Affairs .
Tyquon "Fats" Atkins (friend of Sal DiNubile) was convicted for Flacco's death. He was temporarily incarcerated with Brandon. While there, he threatened Brandon and admitted to being one of the people who shot up his parents home, and that the 'cops knew and were down the street.'
