The bosses that had people killed for sneezing had to have been scary. Scarfo, Amuso, etc. John Gotti's neighbors probably didn't sleep well after John Favara suddenly disappeared. Sociopaths are scary because there's no rules with them. They kill because they feel like it. Everyone in their sphere is on borrowed time.

Albert Anastasia comes across to me in pics and footage as someone I never would want to f*ck with..

And I always remember that statement by that old cop Joe Salerno about Galante and Dellacroce:

''Of all the gangsters that I've met personally, and I've met dozens of them in all of my years, there were only two who, when I looked them straight in the eye, I decided I wouldn't want them to be really personally mad at me. Aniello Dellacroce was one and Carmine Galante was the other. They had bad eyes, I mean, they had the eyes of killers. You looked at Dellacroce's eyes and you could see how frightening they were, the frigid glare of a killer."

They say Carlos Marcello could be scary when he wanted to be.

He supposedly had a sign in his office that said "3 can keep a secret, if 2 are dead" or some shit like that. Word was he liked to talk to folks where they could see that sign.

Aniello Dellacroce was the single scariest wiseguy I've ever seen.

Ralph Salerno was the cop's name. Galante, I get, but didn't Dellacroce get his ass handed to him by Joe Gallo's crew?


Legendary anecdote:When Dalitz got his 5'3 back up, no one could rattle him. There is the oft-told tale of Dalitz sitting in the dining room of the Beverly Rodeo Hotel in Hollywood. Heavyweight champion Sonny Liston, in an ugly mood from drink, approached the old bootlegger. Words were exchanged and the angry Liston drew back a powerful fist.

Dalitz did not move and his voice was not loud but crisp. "If you hit me, you'd better kill me, because if you don't, I'll make one telephone call and you'll be dead in twenty-four hours."

Yea that's the story but Dellacroce was La Cosa Nostra to the core. His boss at time ( Don Carlo) said let it go and he did. If he got a contract or OK to take care of someone, they were going and He was very feared by many hard asses from what I heard. No coincidence Gotti did not make his move until Mr. Neil was gone. There's no shame in losing a fight to multiple men by oneself.

In the fifties and sixties, people were deathly afraid of Sonny Franzese. However, if I had to choose one and only one then I'd probably go with Carmine Galante. Not even his closest associates felt comfortable around him. Man was pure evil.

Galante was actually diagnosed as a psychopath in prison.

He was also proficient in French and Italian and helped set up numerous cross-country drug deals.


In closing, these stories have not been embellished, because they need no embellishment. They are simply, horrifyingly, the story of my life as a short, stocky, slow-witted bald man.

I think Jimmy Burke should get honorable mention here.

I don't know who was the scariest, and I don't think Jimmy Burke was..the scariest. But it's saying something when you have a guy walking around in the street who doesn't even know his own birthday, or even where he was born, who was sexually molested, who did killings outside of mob permission, who killed his partners just to keep his share of the loot they stole together. He was frightening to many for good reason.

I don't know who read Wiseguy by Nicholas Pileggi here, but the part retold by Henry Hill when Jimmy BUrke found out DeSimone was whacked instead of being made...for killing a made man, was riveting. Jimmy Burke hears the news and slams the payphone down so hard, the whole phone booth shook. He might have even cried. Sadness and anger is a scary combination. This was a guy who killed his friends and strangers wih ease, and now he was shaking with anger and crying simultaneously. A very dangerous unhinged individual.

let us not forget the little freak from Chicago, marshall caifano this animal set a woman on fire, and burned her alive.

her name was Estelle cary, and caifano thought she was a rat, she wasn't. caifano never had any remorse for this brutal and sadistic act, in fact, used to brag about it.

hard to top that one for sadism. and Richie "the boot"boiardo a new jersey henchman who had a crematorium in his new jersey barn.

Gaspipe Casso was quite a nasty guy and a homicidal maniac, ordering virtually anyone who crossed them or were purported informants to be rubbed out. May have killed 50 people, and reportedly behind 80-100 hits.

Anthony Accetturo even said of Casso, "all he wanted to do is kill, kill, get what you can, even if you didn't earn it."

Greg Scarpa was another notorious hitman (80-100 hits), and so was Carmine Persico.

Accetturo was no choirboy himself.

He had a vicious reputation.

He also didn't seem to understand that when you are in the mafia you are supposed to pass a percentage of the money you steal up the food chain.

Guys like him and Ricciardi were renegades, out for themselves.

I wouldn't put much stock in the spin that guys like him and Ricciardi come out with.

It has as much worth as D'Arco's outlandish Kimberly Hotel story.

That's a good point. The guy runs the entire NJ Luchese crew and expects all he has to do is toss over $50,000 a year? That may have been the arrangement with Corallo but I don't see why any other boss would put up with it. Corallo should have at least told Casso that was going to happen, or told Acceturo to kick up more.

Steve Flemmi, total creep, rapist and a killer despite being a WW2 hero. Carmine Galante I agree with based on what I've read. I will dispute Dellacroce, simply because after the Gallo beating he let it go. Cosa Nostra or not, I don't see an Anastasia, Gallo, Scarfo letting it go. And to be honest if he was so feared he wouldn't have gotten the beating to begin with. Just my opinion
