Snitch! Big words junior. I hope you have something more concrete than those words, like proof that he is a snitch because I did time with him and he was and still is a VERY stubborn man.

I was on the Jury that Put Freddy Myers away. It was 1983 in Federal Court house at Foley Square. Judge Sands, 8 defendants, 9 defense attorneys including James LaRossa.
The RICO statute was fairly new and he was convicted on running an on-going criminal enterprise. Two of the defendants walked including one of his daughters. It was an interesting life style they had. The govt brought in cash in shopping carts and big diamonds passed around the Jury. Big lifestyle.
I hope they make the movie.

if freddie myers was a snitch why wouldn't he have took the first deal they gave him when they called him
to talk? and would would he wait 24 years to snitch...unlike your pops sugar bear sr. he waisted no time bumping his gums. Sugar bear jr. I notice that some people type just because they have working fimngers and some talk just because they have a mouth don't be one of those people.

I feel you on the ronnie bump comment. I went to public school 118, in the Hollis section of Queens with ronnie bump (who's last name is really bascomb). I'm sure he got his no snitch ethics from his father, who was the last customer on my route as a young paperboy of the now defunct newspaper the Long Island Press many years ago.

REAL MEN DON'T SNITCH!!!
Like it or not these men like Lucas, Bumpy Johnson, Freddie Myers,Guy Fisher etc are black entrepreneurs whosome did find inventive ways to deal their death to the black community and all the whites who ventured into Harlem for drugs. We all learned about the ďgood things or actions of noteĒ of many historical figures and tend to look at one aspect of their lives while ignoring the other parts.Thomas Jefferson was president and a great American icon, but he was also a serial rapist, slave owner and child molester. History glosses over these details and we tend to look at his other qualities. But we donít do that for black men. Why? you know. We know th e human side of all these figures but rarely find out about the black stories. I think moolie is defending the honor of the Italian mob and rightfully so. It wasnít the first time crime was organized, but it was ans is the most memorable. nowadays the gay Mafia is more powerful in the Us but times have changed. Iíll enjoy the movie for what it is. Iíll look to see historiacal accuracies in scences about Harlem and NYC.This country was built by criminals and still run by them. So a guy gets his story told. so what. He bypassed his competition and sold a better quality death. Take the idea and apply it to real business. The real movie should be about Frank Matthews out of Bk. He was the true black Godfather in money made and scale and he jumped bail and they havenít caught him yet! Another poor black kid from the South coming up north to make a better life. More stories of the black experience.
