Former Genovese underboss Michele “Mickey Dimino” Generoso died this week, a source informed Cosa Nostra News.

The old-school gangster finally succumbed to natural causes at around age 97; he'd been active on the street until about two years ago, despite reports to the contrary, said our source. Generoso was waked in Brooklyn today privately and will be publicly waked tomorrow. The funeral is scheduled for Saturday.

Generoso reportedly "retired" around two years ago, said the source, a Queens-based former mobster. "Mickey Dimino" had some powerful men under him while he was on the street. One was Anthony "Tough Tony" Federici, a captain in the Genovese crime family who is known today for his fundraising efforts and for owning the Corona, New York-based Parkside Restaurant.

So What the Hell Happened with Asaro Case?

This guy is 57 years old and still afraid of an 80 year old man. what a pu**
A nearly unrecognizable Vinny Asaro walks home triumphantly with
his daughters lawyers.....

I first heard the term "jury nullification" Monday morning in conversation with a federal prosecution source regarding the Vinny Asaro verdict. I'd actually known what it meant, I just didn't know there was a term for it.

Asaro departed Eastern District Federal Court in Brooklyn on Thursday, Nov. 12, 2015, after being found not guilty of masterminding the infamous $6 million Lufthansa heist at Kennedy Airport in 1978. The anonymous jury of six men and six women also found Asaro, 80, not guilty in the killing of mob associate Paul Katz in the 1960s as well as various extortion, robbery and gambling charges.

His attorneys, Elizabeth Macedonio and Diane Ferrone walked with Asaro who no doubt was thinking about home-cooked food, the comforts of home.

Murder Plot, Mob Alliance Prompt Quebec Bust

Vito Rizzuto's son Leonardo and Stefano Sollecito were identified as the two heads of the Montreal Cosa Nostra.

The murder plot of Vito Rizzuto's chief enemy, Raynald Desjardins, set in motion today's series of predawn raids in Quebec, with police sweeping up 48, including members of the Montreal Mafia and the Hells Angels.

Arrested were Rizzuto's son, an attorney reportedly not involved in organized crime (Leonardo Rizzuto, 46, took over after his father's death, police today claimed), and the daughter of Maurice "Mom" Boucher, a legendary former president of the Hells Angels' Montreal chapter.

Boucher himself was arrested  in his jail cell where he's serving multiple life sentences for killing two prison guards.
