2012_12_BarVeloceSign.jpgBack in 2002, an unemployed Brooklyn barber took 16 hostages inside Bar Veloce, holding them captive with three guns, a sword, and some kerosene. Back on trial now after his first ended in a hung jury and the second in a conviction that was overturned on a technicality, the perp has?unsurprisingly?pleaded insanity. [NYP]
