He's probably going to fake his own death now. POOF!! Where'd he go?? But seriously people we all should realize that this guy is going down and hard. His side man rolled on him and I don't blame this poor hand picked knucklehead for cooperating. Believe me when the ATF is in your grill you either faint, crap or cooperate. The hubris of this guy is unparalleled. The bottom line is 15-20 years. If he really is a crackhead or gambler will he be giving up those shifty people for a break. This guy is screwed with a power drill.

No, it's a Diner family. His brother owns the 50/50. You know what that stands for? You have a 50 percent chance of making it home from the diner before you shit your pants.

His brother is known as the biggest as*hole in Fitchburg. And we all know that they like to make a few bucks on the side selling the whacky weed. Most diner owners do anyways. If you need some smoke always go and ask a diner owner.

All diner owners show a loss on the tax returns every year. Since they are paid cash they are able to hide a majority of their incomes. Go to any diner owners home and there are rolls of cash laying everywhere.

The 50/50 has illegal crosswalks painted by the owner. He was on the DPW for a few years. A crosswalk has to go from sidewalk to sidewalk not sidewalk to edge of street.

He also likes to plow the snow into an illegal snow bank at the corner of Oakhill road that impedes the vision of motorists.

I see there is alot of Cordio fans here. Don't worry the 50/50 is still in business.......wink. But for the others there is another side of the diner business world that most people don't know about.

I can still hardly believe how screwed this guy is. Supposedly a successful guy torches his own business for money? That's like selling your car for gas money. I think the only reason he recruited a accomplice was for using him as a potential fall guy. I'm wondering how this patsy suffered his burns. He obviously must of handled some of the accelerates. Its sucks thinking how much pain this idiot caused his family along with embarrassing the community

He's paid money for access to the Boston sports scene for years. I'm told he enjoyed looking like a celebrity at sports benefits. Posing for pics with well known sports figures. I think he's gone from a b-list groupie to the DNA (do not admit) list.

He only got successful off the pain of hurting others. This is been long over due. Trust me. I know first hand. So don't seem so shocked. If you really know who Jeff Cordio is. Then you would understand the satisfaction of watching this low life crumble in public. Which I plan on doing with a smile on my face and a big wink "back at yah Jeffery"!!

Are you some sort of half-tard? Give him a big wink while he is stuffing your money in his pocket. Nobody held a gun to your head and forced you to buy a shitty breakfast. That's all on you for being to stupid to fry your own egg!

This guy can't get a cup of sympathy. He was made a deputy sheriff by former Worcester sheriff Guy Glodis and carried a badge he liked to flaunt. He always bragged too about having friends in high places. I think he really felt like he was untouchable and this final attempt to burn his business would eventually fade away while he was laying on a beach in Florida spending some insurance money.

Poor Petey Wheatstraw. Aka Joe the plumber Phillips. No such thing as easy money or fast cash. I'm sure that by now Phillips must know he's been thrown under the bus.
