The real life inside the Mafia is nothing like what you see in the media. When I got there it was a disappointment. I was with the LA Family for more than 10 years and then the Colombo Family. I was around high ranking guys. It was the same. All petty and full of backstabbing people. It was far from the Glamorous life one might think. I never felt any guilt wearing a wire on any guys in the life. I never felt bad at all. When it was all over I felt like a drug addict for the life. I missed the life, not the people in it. After a year in a safe house I saw it for what it was, a dead end.
Today we have a 90 plus year old underboss who is so cheap he gets indicted for shaking down a place for free drinks. He has a known rat, he had heard the tape of Ori Spado and still had him around to give him money. Then he takes back his son John who has informed many times before and was even written about in Ganglandnews.
Today the Feds just keep up their assault on the families. The Families are low down now and even deal with street gangs.
I wonder how much Johnny Goggles Baudanza gets from the family? How about Craig Marino?
I know Teddy and Michael Persico have top notch Lawyers. What about the rest of them?
Its all a sick joke.
