These will go down as Teddy "Do Over" Persico's defining statement on his life! I can act like a fool! This sums up his whole life and this is what most mobsters lack today. Teddy Jr is a throwback to another time. He is a gangster to the core, he lives it and he is willing to do what it takes.
I liked Teddy because he was a hard guy. He was cool. People can talk about Teddy but few knew him. I was one of the first people to see him when he hit the streets after 17 years of lock down. He told me that he need to leave a body on the street so people knew he was back.
The powers that be wanted Teddy to ease back into the world he left behind. They were grooming him for a top slot like his father. This was not for Teddy in fact before he even was released he was already on his way to life in prision. I was already wearing my wire at Big R trucking when it was in downtown Brooklyn at Bonafide. I sent him some pornstar pictures while he was locked up. He was not supposed to get out for another four years! He was released early because they changed the law.
The day he got out he was already being watched and listened to by the law.
I wonder if Teddy is mad at Eddie Garafolo for bringing me in to his life? If it was not for me he may have had a few more years on the street. I love that I can still keep getting these guys!
One day Eddie came to my place on Shore road and his hand was bleeding bad. He had beat up one of his workers for complaining about being paid low wages. I am glad I had my wire running that day. There was one time that was so funny! Eddie was in my place and he had this paper that had Colombo guys and assoicates listed on it. He was amazed that it some new guys on it. I had to keep from laughing because I gave the FBI those guys names.
We know Teddy can do the time. What about Michael Persico and Eddie Garafolo? Michael has the family legacy to uphold. Eddie will let down his wife who is jammed up on this case and their kids. They are all losing assets in this case.
Will Eddie Garafolo stand tall? What will his Uncle Manny do?
How will Michael Persico stand after Frankie Blue Eyes does him in to the Grand Jury?
