I did not see the mob do a Ruby Ridge or a Wacco Texas. I saw the FBI do it. I do not know why the feds dont go after the Bloods, Creeps, Latin Kings, MS-13 with the same dog like determination as they do the old Irtlians who are infinetly less dangerous to the public then the above mentioned. I am no defender of organized crime. They have killed many of my friends who I will see no more again forever. If they are guilty as asseretd then lock em up and throw away the key. The problem is that the Feds when they want you they got you. They have unlimited resources. The FBI (Full Blooded Italians) have much to fear from the FBI. And I suspect this post will be taken down as was the last one I put up by the censorhip mad newsday people. Great to have a free press in America with freedom of speech. Isnt it newsday?

Very good question. I don't see the usual hatred and ignorance. Let me guess; Is it because this time the criminals on this one aren't black or latino?

If Bush were in charge of the investigation he would invade Italy to get the Mafia.

Bomb the city of Rome to get a couple of hundred gangsters.

Usama bin Laden = 19 people with box cutters.

Dumbya Bush =$2 Trillion Dollars and lost two wars with the best military on earth

It's very upseting what happened to LCN.To many power hungry soldiers and it helped bring down the mob,guliani didn't help matters.Youse guys needed to keep a low profile.pauly was a gentleman and had a good money making mind.He would never condone drug trafficing or unnecissary hits.LCN is a bussiness albeit illegal.It seems the FBI wants to go after theese guys in the new york area.They dont have the will or balls to go get the drug smugglers down at our borders.theese people are ruthless killers but they get a pass because we dont want to hurt there illegal alien feelings.My advice for the gomba's up there on cropsey ave,keep it simple and clean,Loans,numbers,a hijack here and there and you can still keep your thing going.

Funny how rarely the FBI busts violent drug gangs, or groups like the Bloods which have over 100 times the members that the US Mafia has.
Oh well, their last names don't end in vowels, so the FBI (Forever Bothering Italians) doesn't care.
This is done on purpose. As of way of Blacks and Hispanics to kill themselves off. How simple would it be to walk thru South Central and pick up 60 gang memebers. They could cover that in the first block.

Let us hope that "Revolving Door Justice" doesn't rear its ugly head on this bust !! Despite the current round-up, there are still a load of wana-b's out there looking to make a name for themselves and the existing bunch who are very powerful and keep a VERY LOW PROFILE.... This is first hand information.........

nobody in media ever complains about how politicians and richland do nothings extort radio into playing only music from writers and artist who the dictators agree with in politics. I think the Gambinos are seen as to close to real America like usefull work not Hollywood nothings.

I was in Federal Prison with Tommy Gambino in Allenwood Federal Prison Pennsylvania in 1997-1998. The reputation of his family is unmistakable. A lot may be true. But what is also true is that Federal authorities will go to any length to take down this Family. When they didn't have evidence of actual crimes, the Government came up with "made up" terms such as racketeering, conspiracy, etc.. I'm not saying this is a family of choir boys. I'm just saying that the U.S. Government will go to any length to take down anyone who draws their ire. Jeff kirkscorner@verizon.net
What you call "made up" terms such as racketeering, conspiracy, etc. are laws passed by the American people through their elected representatives in Congress, and enforced by the Executive Branch. Those are "actual crimes", but don't just take my word for it, you can read the laws for yourself. Racketeering is found in Title 18 US Code Section 1961, and Conspiracy is found in Title 18 US Code 371. To be found guilty of racketeering you have to have committed any of a long list of other crimes. Do you have a problem with that? And why are you defending mobsters, other than your natural sympathy for fellow criminals?
