You scumbags keep telling each other and the rest of the community how you've changed and its all Ok now. but you bums the next weekend will be beating up women and slapping high fives while peeing on them.
Dino has stolen from so many he should never be trusted again. He likes his crack and drugs and booze and will do anything to get it.

You moron dirtbag. All I would have to do is hold up a bag of crack and Dino would do anything I tell him to do. He would even beat your ass for it if I told him too. He can't be trusted and wants his rock.

"hold up a bag of crack" thanks for painting that picture dumbass, as far as you telling Dino to do anything let alone "beat my ass" I doubt that! Dino would never beat my ass for one reason, it's called being a loyal friend, a lifelongfriend! So I am done with you Junior, grow the he!! up and move out of your moms westside basement and join grownup land. Ta Ta

Dino is a liar, a thief, a junkie, a drunk, and a total loser. Everywhere he goes there is crime and trouble. He is the biggest piece of shit on the west side.

I met Dino in the early 90's (printed some t-shirts for him in my shop). He was polite, friendly and paid his (rather substantial) bill on time in full. A few years later, my 3 sons and I moved to Sparta and my sons (Shane, Chris, Nick) became friends with his sons. His son Duane came to my house a lot. He is a good guy...always polite and respectful of the house rules. For me, if a guy lives a hard live, yet manages to raise GOOD sons (as I did)... well that guy is alright by me.

I never Urinated on women.Stole ,or beatpeople up.But I also suffered With Chemical Dependency.I did alot of other things though that I am not proud of.Fortunatly I didn't have a well known name,to keep people talking.Granted Dino's behavior was atroshis!I believe alot of his behavior was the result of his substance abuse and probably a un diagnosed mental condition.This does not excuze his actions.
Perhaps at this point in his life God is speaking to his heart as he has mine.A better life can be held by ANY man who askes for the forgivng love of God,through the sacrifice of Jesus.Perhaps his appearance on TV was a way of him to say I'm sorry to the community I let down.Yes his actions as a young out of control chemicaly addicted man will always haunt him.But the bible says "how many time do you forgive yor brother?"Every times he asks!

Eff all of you who thinks he's scum. Don;t throw stones at your neighbors if you live (or think) you live in a glass house. Dino helped MANY MANY people you f's. His life is a storey of redemption. He should have been dead a loooong time ago after living the life he did, with the governemtns/police officers bribes. You think it's Dino's fault for some of the shit he got into? WRRRONG... The chief od police killed himself after he was convicted.... figure that beeatch. God saved him for some reason. You seen Scarface? Sopranoes? The Godfather?.... Be glad you got to witness DINO.. "Those without sin can cast the first stone." Where's your stone? God bless

I have met dino briefly. the only concern dino had was for his son and to better his life. dino may have done every single thing he has ever been accused of, if i remember an ancient scripture reciting that jesus christ took in a prostitute as his very close friend. the reason i even say that is, people who have had times dont need people bashing them. they need love and support. i mean really if you think about it, all of you bashers could be the reason he declines that next charity event. why do if its just bringin harassment? and theoretically he gets depressed and back into what youre sayin he is doin. and then one night the two of you cross paths and he needs that quick fix. now if you follow the trail back using cause and effect youll realize....your fault. dino is a good man with good intentions. and dino, sorry i could never help you and your son out more. stay true to yourself and got will reward you for your good deeds, none of these kids are your judge. brad from pennzoil,....call me sometime, wonderin if youre still training people. 16165167253

In 1978 I co-owned a karate school on Bridge St. with a GR Police Officer. One day that summer in walks a kid from the neighborhood with a black eye.
He wanted to learn karate. At the time he was young and getting into trouble, the training helped for a while but when he got good the fighting began. In 1981 he and my formoer partner (the ploice officer) were arrested for rippin off drugs delears for their cash , drugs and guns. Both did time. Dino was a good fighter, I know he has done some bad things. What ever happen to redemption, Dino is older now and with age we all change and I can only hope that he has and is doing ok.
Dinos fight in Tokyo.
