He died for a vacuum cleaner and a mixer. This was the thief of the thief Emanuele Reali, deputy chief of carabinieri in service of the Caserta operative core, had begun chasing Tuesday evening. In an attempt to reach it, he climbed across the railroad, slid on the wetland and was overwhelmed by an appropriate train. He was 34 and everyone called him Lele. He was married and father of two girls. His tragedy struck Caserta, but also Cascia, the town where the Reali family lives, and Rieti, where the unpopular officer was born. Those who knew him now say that "he was a hero", "one as always thought of others". Father's uncle, Piero, Commissioner of Cascia, remembers yesterday the "absolute devotion" to the uniform he had decided to wear. "He never pulled back, so he was a hero everyday and he showed it with this last gesture."
On Facebook the memory of colleagues
Carabinieri would honor him in an unusual way. On the Facebook profile, they remind you that he quotes a famous piece of Francesco Guccini, "La locomotiva". "He died crashed by a train Emanuele Reali, son of parents who are not natural are destined to survive him, make a woman who will miss the air, dad to two girls so little that they hardly remember – you read in the mail – . Its end calls 'Guccini's locomotive', although it's just another story. But there's a line of the song that reads: The heroes are all young and beautiful. Emanuele was young, like the enthusiasm that led him to chase after a perpetrator without worrying about the consequences, in the dark along the railroad track. And it was as beautiful as his brave action, uniquely dedicated to duty. "
Everything starts Tuesday morning with a routine operation. In via Pier Paolo Pasolini, inside the park "La Selva", the carabinieri of the operational core blocks two thieves; In his car there are "tools for trade", two radios, a toy gun and swag: the vacuum cleaner and the mixer, in fact. Two accomplices managed to fly with another car, but they were identified quickly. It is the case that they eclipse the Emanuele Reali patron in the evening outside a bar in Via Ferrarecce. One of the thieves is immediately handcuffs, the other manages to fly on foot, heading to the railroad. Assistant Brigadier launches the quest on foot, surrounds the wall, glides and is overwhelmed by the local train left by Piedimonte Matese and directed to central Naples. A horrible death under the eyes of colleagues who can not do anything if not to die.
The chasing thief is still going on. Arma colleagues chase him, they are sure they will be able to find him. This is also a way to honor poor Lele. To him, yesterday, the words from the leaders of the weapons and the institutions came forth. Starting with the commander of Legion Campania, Maurizio Stefanizzi. Even the Interior Minister, Matteo Salvini, sent a message on condolence. The residents of Bellona were close to the family, where Emanuele lived with his wife and two daughters. The funeral will take place tomorrow at Piana di Monte Verna, in the province of Caserta, to which Mrs Emanuele Reali's wife belongs. The mayor of the capital, Carlo Marino, proclaimed one day of grief for the city. "It's not just a formal act or duty – he says – but the need to transform a common sense of entire citizenship into something concrete".
