Wild story that sounds just like the films these types of events are based on.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/13/briefing/frank-cali-gambino-shot.html

Quote:

Francesco Cali, the reputed boss of the Gambino crime family, was fatally shot outside his home on Staten Island on Wednesday night, a senior police official said.

Mr. Cali, 53, was shot six times, the official said. The police said they received a report about the shooting outside 25 Hilltop Terrace in the Todt Hill section of Staten Island around 9:20 p.m. There was also a report of a blue pickup truck leaving the scene around the time of shooting.

Mr. Cali was pronounced dead at Staten Island University Hospital.
A 58-year-old neighbor who gave only his first name, Salvatore, said that he heard a burst of about seven gunshots shortly after 9 p.m.
Quote:

The assassination of Mr. Cali came on the same day that Joseph Cammarano Jr., the reputed acting boss of the Bonanno crime family, was acquitted at trial.

I guess this can officially fit the politics board since I've already found a bunch of insane lunatics trying to tie the Gambino crime family to Trump.

Quote:

AWTUCKET, R.I. (WPRI) The man who was gunned down Sunday morning in what authorities are examining as a possible gangland slaying was an associate of a former Rhode Island mob boss, the Target 12 Investigators have learned.

Napoloen Andrade, 37, of Central Falls, was shot in the shadow of the Pawtucket halfway house where he was staying. Andrade who has a lengthy criminal history was wrapping up a sentence for taking part in a 2010 Connecticut home invasion where the victim was a 78-year-old associate of the Gambino crime family.

Andrade previously worked as a bouncer at Providence-area strip clubs with ties to organized crime. Retired R.I. State Police Col. Steven O'Donnell, a veteran mob investigator, said Andrade was an associate to former mob boss Luigi "Baby Shacks" Manocchio.

"He's an enforcer; he's the type of person when he shows up at your door you're going to what you're asked to do," O'Donnell said. "It was unusual to have a mob boss trusting someone outside the mob family. That relationship developed over years and Louie Manocchio trusted him."
Manocchio, 91, was released from federal prison in 2015 after serving five-and-a-half years for shaking down strip clubs for protection money. The case was part of a sweeping 2011 crackdown into organized crime.

O'Donnell said there is little question detectives are looking into whether the murder was in retribution to the home invasion. He said it's likely Pawtucket police have questioned another resident of the halfway house: mob capo Edward "Eddie" Lato.

Now that I think about it, Billy 'Lucky' Liucci is originally from New York AND he likes Italian food. Hummmmm......could be next in line as the over boss of the Gambino Crime Family.

If LSU thinks they were screwed this past year then they better get just get ready!

This is no way for a man to die, from the linked article:

Quote:

In October, Sylvester Zottola, 71, a reputed associate of the Bonanno crime family was shot and killed as he waited in his S.U.V. to pick up an order at the drive-through window of a McDonald's in the Bronx.

Most mobsters live on Staten Island. It is generally off limits for such a hit.

I bet that it was an internal power play. One of the younger associates wanting to take control of the family.

Known and proven in a court of law are two different things. That's sort of a key principle for the mob.

Would you testify against one of them?

I always thought someone would dig up a mob connection with Trump. Not because I think Trump is involved with the mob in any way, it's just that the construction industry, trade unions garbage companies etc were/are mob controlled or infiltrated. NYC is crooked. So to do business there you are going to run into companies, unions, etc that have mob connections.

Trump was a long-time informant against the mob. It's true, remember I said this when it becomes more well known.

Trump was also very involved with "Russian" mob of Brighton Beach, although I cannot explain more due to an agreement with Staff last summer to not post about a particular group/country.
