I knew John when he was in California. I still have his card from Odessa House, the sober living home he lived at in Santa Monica. I went to his favorite place to eat with him. The Bowling Alley. I was on his TV show. I can see why he would testify against Ori Spado. Ori used to use John for his name and his father. Then behind John's back he would call him a rat and show people Ganglandnews.
I am sure Sonny Franzese just got old. He was greedy. Maybe he needed the money. Sonny without a doubt knew Ori Spado was a rat. I sent him the tape of Ori speaking to the FBI.
Sonny knew John had turned him in to the FBI before. He still trusted John to drive him around. John was out taking money from people. John could never be trusted.
One person who trusted John was his wife in California. She sold her home and moved into an apartment with John. She traveled to New York with her young son to meet Sonny. They all had a very good time. Then one day John was acting funny, very nervous and he was pacing back and forth in the garage. John had hidden a duffel bag in the garage. He told his wife he was okay. She went back out and he was gone. She has never heard from him again. She even reported him missing. He left her and her son alone.
That is what the Mafia is all about. Father against Son, Son against Father, Brother against Brother, Friend against Friend.
I am on the Deadliest Warrior on Spike TV on Tuesday night. I am also on The Aftermath Show!
