And by all accounts Leonardo Rizzuto is a boss, although loosely right now. Vito Rizzuto was a boss. Nick Rizzuto Sr. Was a boss. Thats my point, like Scarfo, they needed no permission to kill within their own borgata. Not only that but Sicilian blood line mattered more to them than rules called upon by NY. And I really don't think those guys cared all that much about what NY had to say post Cotroni. I'm still waiting for an answer as to who gave a French associate, Desjardins, the "okay", to kill a Bonanno acting boss.
