Organized Crime - Real Life
10 minutes ago

The family of Tommaso Buscetta, whose testimony sent more than 400 gangsters to prison, has come out of hiding long enough to tell their story in an eye-opening new documentary.

Costello was said never to use bodyguards because they'd be the first to be gotten to by enemies and end up taking him out.

I'm reading this ATM.

What do other guy's think of it?

I don't think I've ever heard it discussed on here.

So far it strikes me as a less in-depth version of Five Families (which is not necessarily an insult).

Interesting point, Pete. After gambling was legalized in 1931, the Nevada Legislature put oversight into the Tax Commission. Oversight was lax--they didn't look too closely at gaming license applicants as long as they were going to bring taxable income into the state. But, as you imply, the gangsters may have had a quid pro quo with the state to use front men for licensing purposes in order not to call attention to the cozy relationship. That changed in '58, when, after embarrassing revelations about OC involvement in Nevada gambling, the Legislature took control out of the Tax Commission and put it into a new Gaming Commission, which had real regulatory teeth. Harry Reid, former US Senate Majority Leader, was an early chief of the Gaming Commission.

Its because Joe has the juice on the street. Stevie Lancia is his uncle and patch member. He owns a condo building in Providence where alot of the members take residency. I asked the same question way back when about how young he is to be a president. What I heard was he went after a rival gang from out of state. Tuned them up pretty good. And caught the attention of a major California chapter. So he's got huge backing.

I found it hard to believe , foreign groups in Italy pay for sure , and maybe some parts of EU where 'Ndrangheta have strong presence and control of ports.

On both sides many were killed Yugoslavs and Dutchmen. He has to be careful, Jocic, Barsoum and Van Hout, before he became an alcoholic, were amiable, friendly guys besides the usual drug stuff they were also big in gambling and prostitution.

Yes and yes.

They already did that with the second season of the show, set in the 1970s, where the KC-based “mafia” plays a pivotal role.

Surprisingly none of its members were of Italian decent. They were a melting-pot outfit of Jewish, black, Asian and Anglo-German leaders and hitmen.

Diversity was their strength...

I guess that whatever happened in the 1950s messed them up real bad.
