Show Summary Details


This chapter talks about the Six Truck Sergeants who had different complementary leadership styles. Tommy Murphy was generally popular among the cops because he was generous and acted more like a cop than a boss and he had a buddy boy relationship with his favorite subordinates. Jack Cambria, the third Six Truck Sergeant, was an involved and popular leader among cops, peers, and brass. Tony Rizzo was the fourth Six Truck Sergeant; he had also been a cop and a boss in the Emergency Service. After the raid, the first signs of trouble in the Emergency Service did not come from Tony Rizzo. The author suspects that the rumor was inflated by the collective memory of the article that had appeared in the New York Post. Ryan left the Emergency Service shortly before 9/11 and transferred to the Intelligence Division with the help of Bill Morange and Ray McDermott. Dolan also transferred out and into the Bomb Squad.
