The Mafia makes it easy for the FBI to do their job. They stay in the same small area and fight over the same few dollars.
They will keep getting hit hard by the FBI as long as the public reads their stories. The FBI gets funding by making headlines. They could go after Russian mobsters who make more money and work on an International level. That is not sexy, no headlines in busting a bunch of guys with names nobody knows. That is the same deal with the large drug crews.
This is easy work for the FBI, they bust a few old guys and the stupid young guys doing their dirt. It is easy, they speak English, live in the area, do the same things everyday.
I wrote before that the FBI was going to come down hard on the Colombo family. The guys still on the street made it through the Holidays. Will Teddy Persico jr see mothers day this year a free man? How long will Michael Persico be able to keep the family business going? He is Allie Boi's lifeline to the streets. When the FBI takes down the Persico's this time, this should be it. The new leaders should just step up. The whole family has been illeagel since Allie Boi made himself boss anyway.
My man John "Goggles" Baudanza has a lot of time to do. The chance that anything is left for him on the streets are getting very slim. The Feds just hit his father in law Danny Cutia with another indictment. Danny is 74 and in poor health can he make it 8 more years until Goggles Baudanza gets out? Even if Goggles does get out who will protect him from the "Georges" He did piss off some heavy people. Then Goggles must worry about catching new charges like the two brothers, Freddy, The pizza kid, The diner or setting up Robert. I say read some good books enjoy life Goggles you maybe in for a lot longer.
I was just on the radio talking about the 80's, that was fun! The 80's were easy! There were not video cameras all over, the FBI was not every place. The cocaine days were fun!
The OC was full of criminals. Mike Rizzi was down here getting paid. They blasted some guys. Bill Carrol got it, but lived.
Talk about a charmed life. He takes bullets to the head and walks away. Maybe he even gets away with murder.
Time has a way of making things come back up. Even now the murders in the OC will come back up.
Jimmy Casino, Big George, Joe Avila and the bookie, hell even the porno guy Charlie the Ape.
Enjoy the week! Kenji OC
