My "godfather" was the head of a railroad/waste management mafia.<quoted text>
Hmm, saying things on the phone is not an action? Really? Issuing an order or demand to another person over the phone is not an action? If not mob bosses would be immune to prosecution by ordering a hit over the phone.
What law did he break?
You need to break a law to be held responsible for your actions? Really?
So a guy can call his boss a whole bunch of offensive names, but if he doesn't break a law he cannot be fired (held responsible for his actions)?
(To qualify that statement.. Mom was from one of those huge Catholic Italian families. He was in jail shortly after I was born, I had only ever seen him twice... both at funerals he was released for.)
The police had an unfortunate man set him up for something small. They put him in jail.
He had no idea that police had developed technology to listen to your phone calls yet.
He ordered this unfortunate man eliminated from a prison phone.
Then they had him... for good.
The unfortunate man... Well, he was unfortunate.
They found him in a local lake they drained the next year.
