Can anyone shed some light on the beef between Joe Bonanno and Carlo Gambino? Why did Joe dislike Carlo so much?

Bonanno was jealous of the Gambino power and of alliance with Tommy Lucchese,so tried with his friend Magliocco to kill gambino,lucchese,his cousin magaddino and de simone of la family and so become the capo dei capi.
No mistery only power and greed , in fact bonanno was moving in toronto and tucson but don't wanted that the others do the same.

Carlo never liked Joe cause Bonanno would do his own thing like taking over other territories and would not cut other families in the profits unless that family contributed in one way or another. Carlo actually was following Lucchese lead, with resentment that Noe Bonanno was the chairman of the Commission, and Joe never thought much of Carlo Gambino. The beefs were mainly Joe Bonanno vs Buffalo, Chicago, and Lucchese crime families.

By the way, while it made sense to whack Gambino, Lucchese, Magaddino, since they were national key figures, but why DeSimone? He was boss in Los Angeles, and that family was always one of the weakest. Why bother with him, or did Bonanno have some personal reasons?

Yeah, it seemed everybody hated Bonanno... he had a big set of balls, and didn't seem to fear anybody, and nobody ever made a move on him...I can only think of Vito Genovese who might have been more hated and had more balls !!

I almost dont know anything regarding the LA crime fam but I believe that there were seperate factions, one with Bonanno and one with the other NY factions and also Chicago....but pls dont take my word for granted


Whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward. Whoever cannot take care of himself without that law is both. For a wounded man shall say to his assailant: "If I live, I will kill you. If I die, you are forgiven." Such is the Rule of Honor

Bonanno was so ambituous that for sure wanted to put a flag on arizona and take over the l.a. family IMO.

Word was that he wanted to make his son Bill boss of the L.A. family, because there was lots of money to be made in California.

Bill went to California with 40 or so Bonanno members and had lived out there for a short time, the other families in the country, mainly Buffalo and Chicago saw that as a power grab. That was just one of the supposed reasons for the animosity guys held for Bonanno.

Yeah, he says that in his book but I find that unbelievable. I know that Carlo, being in the position of consigliere wasn't necessarily put there by Anastasia (from my understand consigliere was an elected position, voted on by the family members) but I don't think Anastasia would have tolerated him as consigliere if he had that little of respect for him.

I don't believe that's correct. I'm pretty sure Carlo was Anastasia's Underboss after the murder of Frank Scalise. Only for a few months though. Before then he was just a Captain.

I'm not sure how much money there was in California. The two most powerful gangsters to operate in California were Bugsy Siegel and John Roselli, and they both ended up in Vegas. California's law enforcement community was just too tight knit. They closed all the doors to rackets in show business and things like that. Dragna family was mostly into vice and drugs. Mickey Cohen got out of the rackets and pretty much went legit late in life. The San Francisco and San Jose mobs were mostly legit by the 70's, making enough in olive oil and insurance to close their books and retire off.

Gambino was named Underboss in September of 1957, with strong support from Tommy Lucchese, Vito Genovese, and Joe the Blond who was the current Gambino family Consiglieri at the time before he was made Underboss after Anastasia was murdered.

There was still money to make, but by the late 1980's most of the bay area members were legit and did not need the headaches from LE.

Bonanno and Joe Profaci had been allies since both were made Dons after the Castellemmarese War of 1930-31. Following Profaci's war with the Gallos, Gambino began "suggesting" that Profaci step down as Don, but with Bonanno's support, he stayed on the Commission. After Profaci died in 1962, Joe Magliocco, his brother in law and second in command, became Don. Then Gambino openly opposed Magliocco's Donship, and encouraged factions in his family to rebel against their new boss.

In retaliation, Bonanno and Magliocco began plotting to whack Gambino and Tommy Lucchese. But the plot was ratted out to Gambino by Joe Colombo, then a captain under Magliocco. The Commission ordered Magliocco to step down, and to pay a $55,000 fine. Terminally ill with heart disease, Magliocco complied; Colombo became Don of his family. The Commission next ordered Bonanno to come in and explain himself. He refused. The Commission then declared that Bonanno no longer was Don; in his place they installed Gaspar DiGregorio, a longtime close associate of Bonnanno who had been best man at his wedding. DiGregorio also was brother in law of Stefano Magaddino, Don of Buffalo, NY, Bonannno's cousin, who had a grudge against him for "planting flags" in southern Canada. That started the famous "Banana War" that resulted in Bonanno's "kidnapping" and the dissolution of his family.

SinatraClub is right,in Raab's 5 families book said that Bonanno plotted to made his son Bill boss of L.A. and send 40 made men. He wanted to dominate both the coasts.

I know of his beefs with Gambino, Lucchese and Giancana, but why did he add his cousin to the hit list?

The San Francisco and San Jose mobs were mostly legit by the 70's, making enough in olive oil and insurance to close their books and retire off.


One of the biggest criticisms the east coast families had towards the west coast families was their lack of any clout and influence in labor unions. I think Bonanno, with his big ego and legit connections, thought he and Bill could make that happen and at the same time be a lot closer to Vegas, where Bonanno probably also wanted to increase his influence.

Here's an excerpt from Selwyn Raab's Five Families:

Quote:
''California loomed large in Bonanno's plans. Tremendous wealth was being generated in Southern California, and Bonanno felt that Frank DeSimone, the boss of the Los Angeles family, had failed to exploit it. Bonanno plotted to replace DeSimone and his crew with Bill, who would provide better leadership, and forty soldiers who would generate larger profits. As a Commission member, Bonanno already had oversight responsibilities in California of small families operating in San Francisco and San Jose. By seizing control over Los Angeles, Bonanno believed he would dominate Mafia activities on both coasts.''

I don't see what the Bonannos could have done that Siegel, Roselli, Cohen, and later Accardo, Spilotro, etc hadn't already tried. There's a reason they all planted their flags in Vegas.

I'm not saying they could or they couldn't, I'm simply stating what their objective was in going out west and taking over the L.A. family.

Their best bet would have been to go legitimate. If one of these mobsters would have gotten in on the tech industry in Silicon Valley in the early days, who knows?

Roselli was shifty. In the book All American Mafioso, they talk about how Roselli hated Tony Accardo, going back to when he and Accardo were competing suck ups to Capone. I think Roselli was always trying to leverage Accardo's power in LA. Making sure there were always factions at war with each other. I also think this was the reason Roselli was so chums with the Dragnas. He was using them to keep LA from becoming Accardo's turf.

It is pretty well documented that he was consiglieri.

I don't believe that's correct. I'm pretty sure Carlo was Anastasia's Underboss after the murder of Frank Scalise. Only for a few months though. Before then he was just a Captain.

It is pretty well documented that he was consiglieri.


Raven ive literally never heard Carlo was consigliere, only read that he was Alberts Underboss before he had him clipped?
