And like Ivy says, I don't buy the "harmless old bookmaker giving people an outlet to bet on games" trope that is trotted out.

An endeavour that functions and thrives on the implicit threat of violence and extortion.

Exactly . why not just let the mafia control all the unions again so when hard working men retire, they have no money in their pension funds.
Also, whats better than finally saving all your hard earned money to open a business and then have a few mob guys throw a bomb through your window because you wont pay them protection money.

Did you watch the video you post or did you just post it to make fun of the fat guy (a guy who had just seen his son get convicted on a fed case, real classy of you btw).

The taxpayers of Pennsylvania in that video (one of whom wasn't italian) who actually live in Philadelphia are saying stop waisting our money on bullshit cases. The amount of money wasted prosecuting ligambi on that case was a joke.

Murders? AS far as I know, there was no murder count in that indictment. It was joker poker book and shy (for staino). That's it. IF you lived in the New Jersey philadelphia area you would be aware that alot more grevious issues exist beyond small time gambling and loan sharking. And alot less resources are used for those issues. Murders hapeen every day in North philly. Drugs everywhere. Guys are making millions.

So prosecute the ligambi organization? Of course, but, bring a real fucking case, don't waste everyones time and money with a re-trial, and stop pretending you are prosecuting the chin or john gotti.

Finally, you really have no idea what is wrong and right about the criminal justice system in America, and until you start paying taxes in my country, you have no place to say so.

You don't see me talking about the problems existing in whatever shit hole euro country you live in.

Read Crash's comment above and you might get an understanding of why I have little sympathy for the "fat guy" or his son.

I don't mock productive members of society.

And if Ligambi or Staino weren't high ranking members of a notorious criminal organization then I would maybe have a sliver more sympathy for them, but we aren't talking about underdogs here.

Maybe people would be less pissed off if the feds would just turn a blind eye and focus their energies on people with darker skin tones?

Keep pretending the mob aren't some of the main purveyors and main profiteers of drugs.

And what does my shit hole euro country have to do with anything?

This is about a mob related case pertaining to two states. I am not making some grandiose societal judgement about the entire country.

And people have just brought up murders Ligambi was complicit in.

Just because everyone knows he did it or was involved in it somehow but it can't be proven beyond reasonable doubt or because of some technicality bullsh*t they should just leave him alone and have a "hard on" for him? Please.

Try using that justification when child rapists or less glamorous criminals get off on similar technicalities.

And there they will meet Joseph Smith, who will fit them with an orange jump suit and some special magic underwear.

Do you live in about 1965, moe? That hasn't been true in many decades. Philly's best racket in 00s was fucking slot machines in italian bars. Despite all the allegations in your posts, the feds never charged conduct other than that. So in the end, we spent tens of millions of dollars for a few chickenshit convinctions on slot machines.

If you think this is about anything else than prosecutors getting their "case" and moving on to white shoe law firms or politics- I got a bridge to sell you. I went to school with these people, I know what they are all about.

Pretty childish ideas about civics and the nature of government. Go read about the doe prosecutions in Wisconsin and tell me that everything the government charges is moral, fair and wonderful.

Somehow I think you will change your tone fast if the arbitrary and vicious IRS claims you underpaid, when the federal thugs attempt to use civil asset forfeiture on your rental property because you had a bad tenant selling drugs or the EPA thinks you are building on a dry land near a "navigable water" and takes your property.

Most of these prosecutors and bureaucrats are out for number one. Without defense attorneys, everyone is facing the all powerful, thug government alone.

Don't waste your time Nicky. Not only does this fucking Eurotrash clown spout garbage, but he shows no grasp of history. Questions about Frank Martines from the Stanfa crew. Numerous books have been written about the issue, infinite internet resources from that era. Top it off with the fact the TOPIC HAS BEEN DISCUSSED 100 TIMES on this site.

He wants pretend to be a smart guy, mouths off like an educated derelict, and yet asks the dumbest fucking questions.

Moe, go buy a few books. YOu can use your welfare check. The goodfella tapes and the last gangster, both by George Anastasia. In those books you will learn all you ever wanted to know about the philly family and Frank Martines. You'll also learn about the 1999 drug case the feds tried to pin on Joey Merlino. Ron previte tried probably 50 times to get joey to approve a drug deal, but he refused to do so because its a "bad pinch". BUt ye, the LCN controls drugs in Philly.

Grow up.

You will have to excuse my ignorance RE: Frank Martines. I simply have a passing interest in organized crime. I am not absolutely obsessed with them, like you are; I don't go to their hangouts to stalk them. I don't have posters of John Gotti & Joey Merlino in my bedroom, I don't make comments lauding criminals and I don't make asinine quack comments about the federal government.

It's no coincidence that the guy making the best argument (Ivy) comes across eloquently and respectfully while quacks like you resort to derogatory comments about what country "I come from" or Ivy's "religion".

Let's all shed a tear for the persecution of the Italian-American mobster at the hands of the "thug government".

And people are accusing me of denigrating America.

People can't even respect their own government and institutions..

Passing interest vs. Quack

Quack: 383 posts on organized crime site. Quack has a job. Quack has had sex with an actual female in his life.

Passing interest: 1894 posts on gangster web site. Passing interest lives in mom's basement. Passing interest is on welfare. Passing interest is a virgin.

Oh look. The quack is projecting.

If you have to brag about having sex with a woman on an internet forum to insult someone then it's a dead giveaway that you probably haven't.

Enjoy staring at Joey Merlino's six-pack ceiling poster.

OK, ItalianForever is the first casualty here. He had been warned against flaming in the past but he either has a learning disability or he doesn't care. Regardless, he is now banned from posting here.

STOP THE DAMNED PERSONAL ATTACKS, GUYS!!

Lol how can you assume he's on welfare because he doesn't share your opinion that its a "waste of taxpayer dollars" to prosecute Joe Ligambi and the Philly administration. Was Gino DiPietro not a medium scale drug dealer? Would his murder not most likely have an association with the drugs and the market they've created? The simple possibility that Ligambi MAY have known, and ignored, if not signed off on, the plans of a murder isn't enough for it to be a "good" use of taxpayer dollars in his prosecution? And is it not possible that the reason he may have signed off on the murder is because of the drug market? He's taken part in and has oversaw acts of violence such as assaults and murder in the past, should he not be prosecuted for those crimes like every other violent criminal should? Sure he's slowed down with age, hasn't committed a murder in years, should it be left up to god for him to judged for his immoral acts?


I'm not saying he did any of the things, but the DiPietro murder, as well as past history is enough to prove that simply ruling out the possibility that Ligambi & the rest of the Philly Mob, in some way has tried to earn through the drug market in the past decade, may not be logical.


And at the end of it all, while being an illegal activity thats "harmless", bookmaking and bullying your way into the video poker market is still illegal. It's a bullshit offense, just like most of our drug laws, but you do the crime, you should be able to do the time without crying wolf.

How did they bring the organization to it's knees? The only significant players that they put away for any real time were Anthony Staino and Joseph Massimino.

I'm not saying they shouldn't go after these guys (they are criminals at the end of the day), but the fact that they spent millions of dollars of the taxpayers money and 10+ years on this case to only put a few mob soldiers in prison for a handful of years wasn't worth the time or money.

Philly now has more guys on the streets than they have had at any point since late in the Scarfo regime. I'm not saying they are anything even close to the Bruno or Scarfo era's regarding their power/strength, but they have more numbers on the street (with Esposito and Faffy coming home in 2016) than at any point in the last 20+ years.

Most of these prosecutors and bureaucrats are out for number one. Without defense attorneys, everyone is facing the all powerful, thug government alone.


You might have an argument if criminal defense attorneys ONLY took on defendants they truly believed were innocent or had been charged unfairly somehow. But that's not the case. Most will take anyone, regardless of the crime, if they can shell out the bucks. They pretty much have to because, as I said, the vast majority charged are guilty as hell. I've worked in the CJ system and know whereof I speak.

35 made men (including Ligambi and Chang, Sr.) on the street with Esposito, Fazzini and Faffy all getting out in less than 9 months. It's amazing how deep this family currently is.

Ted - unless Big Lou is in a halfway house, I'm almost positive that he is out of prison. I remember seeing an article about it awhile back but I can't remember from where. I also checked the BOP website just to double check, and it says that he was released in April.

SC why do you protect the trolls here at all costs? Isn't it clear that people are sick of them ruining every topic? I guess it's not

Moe was raising valid points in this thread, respectfully, surprisingly. But was just met with personal attacks. That's why SC banned those guys.

Valid points my ass. To even humor the notion that the fbi spending my tax dollars chasing uncle Joe is appropriate is absolutely ludicrous. There are much worse things going on that they could devote the budget and resources towards prosecuting.how would someone know though when they live in a foreign country and just piece together their opinion on our justice system based on articles and archives and their own sense of morality. The money the Feds waste on these guys is a joke, plain and simple.

It's asinine to say that it's a waste of money and resources.

You do realise that when the mafia infiltrated every union it passed on higher costs to the consumer i.e. you, right?

Not to mention the money from people's pension funds that were wiped out.

Funny how when the mafia rip everyone else off, your main concern is what the feds are doing with "your money".

As I said, wilfully obtuse.

How anyone can carry such a blissfully ignorant attitude in these times is beyond me.


You hake a tike.
