It is 2010 and the Mafia keeps trying to use the same business tactics. They actually seem to be regressing as the FBI and other Law Enforcement becomes more sophisticated. The reach of the Mafia has diminished. Today I know almost as many Wiseguys as I did when I was in the street.
When I did the show Flipped: A mobster tells all, I spoke about how petty the Mafia guys in Brooklyn are today. I said it was friends killing friends. Craig Marino and John Baudanza know about killing friends. Guys like Freddy D, Guys they set up like Robert and the innocent guy in the car. The one tough brother and the brother who was a good guy.
This next news story really shows how far these guys have fallen.
Jerry D was around both John Baudnaza and Crag Marino. I also saw him at Nicky Santoro's place. This guy is his father.
A wiseguy who was busted for swiping an engagement ring in a Craigslist scam last year has been linked to a similar crime, authorities said yesterday.
In the latest incident, Gerald Degeralomo, 65, who sources say is an associate of the Luchese crime family, allegedly answered an ad on Craigslist to buy two rings for a total $90,000.
This is bad.
