'T.G.' Graziano Indicted

Anthony Graziano was indicted
after his informant ex-son-in-law
wore a wire on him.
We knew this one was coming; what we didn't know is that the DEA, specifically, flipped Pagan, which means he must have been a big-time narco trafficante, or at least knew enough and had done enough to cave. Drugs keep following the Bonannos; they got into the forbidden business big time after the Donnie Brasco incident, supposedly, which got them kicked off the commission (which Joe Massino says hasn't existed for a long time), and also kicked out of the major high-end rackets in which the New York families shared.

Update, from NYPOST.com:

"The father of “Mob Wives” star Renee Graziano was indicted today on extortion conspiracy charges.

"Brooklyn federal prosecutors say former Bonanno crime family consigliere Anthony “T.G” Graziano conspired to collect a $100,000 debt with the aid of several other mobsters.

"Graziano, 71, now a Bonanno captain, was released recently from prison but was quickly ensnared in a probe by Drug Enforcement Administration agents.

"Renee Graziano’s ex-husband, Hector Pagan - a Bonanno associate-turned DEA informant - reportedly wore a wire and secretly recorded conversations for the feds with his ex-father-in-law while discussing the collection of a loanshark debt."

  1. Another "bad guy" off the streets...give me a break already with this prosecuting of senior citizens!!! Let them have their remaining years with their families, under doctor's "who care", monitoring, instead of in a Federal Prison Hospital. Just take into account the amount of money the taxpayer is going to have to pay for; the room, board, food and medical expenses for just one inmate?? Let the poor man out, put him on probation, it's not like he's 21 and fully mobile, he's matured and only has a few years so why not allow him the simple RESPECT & DIGNITY THAT HE DESERVES!! The same is currently going on in the Windy City, a trio of 80 year old bank/armored car robbers are on trial, reputed associates of the Chicago Outfit, according to sources, add a little excitement to the hearings. But the same point, these guys are going to be sick and bed ridden, which requires a whole different kind of observation/watching etc.! Let these old time rough guys die in peace and with dignity, man leave the elderly gentlemen who may have been criminals in their youth but as now just "retired" and are just grateful for geeting out of bed in the mornings!

  2. What? Are you fucking kidding me? They ALL, and probably you as well, deserve to be in jail. Bet it didn't help that the Feds were monitoring Nicky for quite some time now... especially from September 2009 to now. hahaha I think I'll send a big "what'd I tell ya"...you know, kind of a big FUck You to Nicky at MDC. Actually this pinch was as bit behind schedule. I told Santora he as getting pinched last February. I guess they waited...to get the others. There's still more. Too bad for them...Yep, I've said it before and I'll keep saying it. The Feds are going to get them. BELIEVE me! They are going to take EVERYTHING from them, EVERYTHING!!! And after they've taken everything from those nickly and dime punks they're going to take the last thing that just isn't worth a bucket of piss, THEIR LIFE!! They call themselves "Knockaround Guys"? EVerybody calls those bozos "Knockaround Guys". Well let me tell ya...the REAL KNOCKAROUND GUYS are the Feds! Just ask any Genovese scumbag! Kudos to DIEGO RODRIGUEZand his department! This is too funny!! ~~ROSSETTI (Yea, that one...it's me...)
