Bucceroni is drawn to cops - and the media

Posted: September 28, 2012

GREG BUCCERONI is part neighborhood activist, part publicity hound.

Bucceroni, 48, says he volunteers with the Youth Violence & Crime Reduction Partnership, and previously was affiliated with Men United for a Better Philadelphia. He lives in South Jersey and works as a school police officer at the Multi-Cultural Academy Charter School in North Philadelphia.

In the past decade, Bucceroni has found his way into dozens of Philly crime stories, sometimes supporting police, sometimes insulting them viciously. Last year, on a web video program called "The Richie Antipuna Show," Bucceroni vented about "dirty-ass bastard cops" and said he's "been doing crime-victim services since the Son of Sam murders."

Bucceroni, who was born in 1964, would have been 12 or 13 at the time of the David Berkowitz murders in New York City. He later told the Daily News that he meant he handed out fliers as a kid to help catch Berkowitz.

Bucceroni, who once worked as a security guard and ran the local Guardian Angels chapter, has made several YouTube videos on the channel "Cocot50" ranting against the group's founder, Curtis Sliwa.
