Anthony Comello, the primary suspect in the killing of Francesco Cali (a well-known Gambino crime family boss), was recently arraigned in a Staten Island court. One of the things that stood out about the suspected killer is that he had 'MAGA forever' written on his hands in the courtroom
Anthony Comello, 24, faced a New Jersey court on Monday with 'MAGA forever' scrawled on his hands. He agreed to be extradited to New York to faces charges in the shooting death of Gambino boss Francesco Cali
While waiting for a hearing to begin in Toms River, New Jersey, on Monday in which he agreed to be extradited to New York, Comello held up his left hand to show the pro- Donald Trump slogans scribbled across his palms
Comello, who was arrested in New Jersey on Saturday in connection to the mafia boss shooting, showcased the writings across the palm of his hands before the hearing commenced. The 24-year-old also had the words 'United We Stand MAGA' as well as 'Patriots In Charge’ written on his palms.
There has been no probe into whether the scribblings on Comello’s hands have anything to do with the killings. It is also not clear whether the shooting was sanctioned by rival mafia groups that possibly had a feud with Cali and his affiliates.
In addition to the 'Make America Great Again' slogan, Comello also had 'United We Stand MAGA' written in blue ink and 'Patriots In Charge'
Comello, who yawned and smiled during the court appearance, will now be extradited from New Jersey to New York to face charges in the shooting death of the 53-year-old mob boss
Cali, pictured left and right, was shot 10 times outside his home at the weekend. Police believe the gunman crashed his truck into Cali's home to lure him outside
The police reported that they arrested Comello after finding his fingerprint on the license plate of a Cadillac Escalade that belonged to the Mafia Gambino crime family boss. This was after they reviewed surveillance video that recorded the murder incident. The video showed Cali stepping out of his home and into the driveway where a blue pickup truck was parked, blocking his way.

The video also shows a man believed to be Comello talking to Cali and even handing the Mafia boss a license plate that had fallen from the Escalade. The mafia boss turned to put the license plate in his vehicle and then the man opened fire on Cali using a 9mm pistol.
The authorities have made sure that Comello is highly guarded during the court hearing and that will likely continue to be the case in prison if he is convicted. This is because he will likely continue to be a target as the Gambino family will likely seek revenge for Cali's death. Highly guarded prisoners are usually isolated from the rest of the prisoners, and that will likely be the case for the 24-year-old.
