Bonanno Boss's Prison Letters Kick Off Second Dominick Cicale Forum

"Mikey Nose"

(Commenced 11am, Saturday, Jan. 10)...


We can thank Michael "Mikey Nose" Mancuso for our starting point....

I don't think any other blog or news organization on the planet has ever gotten such direct insight from the man widely considered to be the official boss of the Bonanno family.

The Nose is from the Bronx, where Vincent "Vinny Gorgeous" Basciano, either former acting boss or current official boss, hailed from.



We're certain an interview with Mikey Nose won't be forthcoming, even in 2020, when he's slated for release.

Someone posted letters handwritten by Mancuso from his prison cell in which he used a variety of adjectives to refer to Dominick (including lowlife, dumbbell, lying fuck, etc.)

The issue is: Who wanted to kill Mikey Nose? Was it Dominick Cicale and/or Vincent "Vinny B" Basciano? Mancuso seems to want to believe it was not Basciano... (It's intriguing that the Nose would even doubt Vinny's word over Dominick's in the first place.)

Here are the letters; much thanks to whomever posted them....(click on each page to enlarge)....





If you read our ebook, you know where Dominick stands on the situation.

From Inside the Last Great Mafia Empire:

“What a fucking punk," Dominick says in the book, referring to Michael Nose's decision to not show up as a backup shooter for a certain hit. 
"That alone could have easily gotten the ‘Nose’ killed, but Fat Patty loved Michael and saved his ass ..." 
Continuing, Cicale said, “Mikey Nose was always a punk. How could a made man walk around the neighborhood strutting his shit and say hello to the man who murdered his own father? ” 
Cicale was referring to old claims that Mancuso’s father was gunned down by a Bronx street thug who “everyone knew.”  
Mancuso’s father, Cicale related, “was with Arnold “Zeke” Squitieri and Alfonse “Funzi” Sisca, Gambino associates at the time, when Mancuso’s father met his demise. The three had been partying one night, drinking and sniffing cocaine. What great pals [Zeke and Funzi were]… They watch their friend get killed and didn’t do a fucking thing about it…Two more fucking punks.” 
Cicale recalled that Mancuso had a tendency to become scarce when “heavy lifting” had to be done. “Mikey always made some type of lame excuse when called upon to help with a piece of work. He’d say: ‘There's too many people around’ or ‘I don't know where he lives.’”....
Dom is going to offer us the initial comment to get things rolling....

  2. I said it before and ill say it again most of these guys arent the sharpest tools in the shed some are good at intimidation others at pulling a trigger on orders. Most of them ride coat tails and cant think for themselves there biggest claim to fame doing a strectch in the Joint. I.ll do time if i fuck up but im not doing time for idiots in my crew or Boss or Jesus christ himself period. I.ll take my chances on the street let the chips fall where they may but thats why its better today to be a associate u kick up still do ur own thing make good money stay clear of the ones who wanna be made or noticed u.ll be ok. If ur good at what u do they.ll come to u. But the idea is to stay under the radar just saying most of u wont agree with that theory gameim still here. Food for thought. Any way im not good at taking orders anyway especialy from people i have no respect for just dont have the patience to play the game.

  3. You think that's something funny or something to brag about, watching someone's Father get abused or spit at? That's a disgrace to abuse someone's Father who had nothing to do with his sons decisions. I'll tell you what, they wouldn't have done it in front of me, but they obviously did it in front of you, which tells me that you obviously are what you sound like...A MUTT!!!

  4. If the father is sticking up for the son he's a rat also, talk about mutt your on here sticking up for a rat family, look at all the people he hurt and put away, all the kids that had nothing to do w anything now missing their fathers, u rat sympathizer. Y don't u pick apart all the lies he writes instead of sticking up for a family wrecking snitch.

    Every thing he's says is a Lie. People ask him how is it for a wise guy to do time. What does he know. His first pinch he was a nobody and this last one he's in the rat wing of the prison. U say ur not hiding. Lol then where do u live big shot. Not a threat just calling this garbage pail out on his lies.

    So what ur saying if 858 or mike if he kills u and vinny thats ok to protect his ass but somebody in the family would.ve wanted his ass for killing u two idiots who were higher on the ladder.Don.t know much about u guys but when u make up ur minds to set somebody up because the boss wants it that way even though the guys loyal but the boss wants it done u leave that individual no other choice and fuck that shit thats what i signed up for he did what he had to do to survive and has to live with it and with both u idiots out of the way it opens the door for somebody else. If i were the guys on the street i shoot ur ass soon as u got out and it would be bussiness as usual but thats me. Thats why im still doing my thing and u guys are doing time and chasing the same nickle looking over ur backs u can have it cuz. Philly

House mouse computer tough guys 857 858 859 very bitter im sure u have a lot of time to contemplate ur outcome anymore than ten yrs no matter your status somebody else is running the show maybe even using ur name to throw the feds off putting a little in the commisary for u. After u do ur twenty strectch u come out u want back in the game but one problem ur a liability no matter how loyal u are if u stir shit u need to go. The guys u were loyal to are either dead or doing life anyway then u ask urself was it all worth it let us know the answer when u get out. The young guys today can care less about u another position opens and the vycle continues with the same results Jail or Dead. The Carlo Gambino.s and the Joe Bonanno days are over even they would.nt survive today with the technolgy the Gov has it.s over except for gambling loansharking and prostitution when everybody in New Yirk is stumbling over the same nickle thats when the shit hits the fan.Philly

  19. I have to say not a lot of people in Dom's shoes would willingly subject himself to potentially widescale abuse... I honestly don't know why he does it... I've tried to talk him out of it! It was his idea for me to post Nose's letters and use them as a starting point for this Cicale forum... His idea to leave up all comments no matter how bad or ridiculous... I finally got it; I do leave all comments up. Everyone should have a voice even if it disagrees with you exponentially, to put it one way....

  20. Really Dave how many fathers and friends did they clip are u for real if ur mad at Dom because he became an informant fine These guys destroyed there own families when they chose crime and yrying to beat the system like u instead of getting a J.O.B.They fucked themselves and there own families and anyone who thinks any different is a stone JERKOFF like ur self. Life is choices u makem and live with them that.s whats wrong with Society today everbody blames somebody for there mistakes. U have to be responsible for ur actions thats why ur ass will eventually end up back in the Joint because u Just dont get it ur a fuck up. Quit blaming others Dave and really look in the mirror and see the life u lead and tell me thats were u want that kid seated next u to be in twenty yrs and if the answers yes do him and ur self a favor and put a bullet in his head and urs. And if the answer is no then move on with ur stupid comments and start showing that kid direction today. Philly

    ReplyDelete
  21. DOM, how come you and Nose didn't get along? I feel like maybe there's more to this mutual "dislike" of each other... I mean as we wrote, you wanted to usurp him... I'm curious if Vinny B perceived this rivalry and when arrested, he purposely tried to play you two against each other...

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thank you... My father was always able to handle himself. Even when he was transferred to Fort Dix someone in the Bonanno crime family started talking shit. That person was check HARD to shut his month by a Crime boss from a different family. I will not blow up that crime boss for the love I have for him till this day, but I will say this... THANK YOU!!!!

  23. Come on please.... At least have some sense, I did close to 20 years in jails. Doing time is easy, but when your so called brothers are robbing everything because of their greed then all bets are off.

  31. I am sure our paths will cross one day. I could understand people being sore with my decision, I had two different crime bosses send word that they could never forgive me, but they understood and I did not have to worry about anyone in their families coming for me... My only concern is the computer tough guys... lol

  47. Interesting email I got from someone who knows a bit about handwriting analysis who read Mikey Nose's letters....

    "So much can be seen in [his letter]. I can tell you from looking at the cursive letter that he had a good relationship with his mother and his father was probably gone a lot, virtually non-existent....[a rule of thumb]: if your name is written the same size as the signature of the person addressing you, they hold you equally in regard to themselves. If your name is larger, they hold you in higher regard. If your name is smaller, well, they think less of you. Analysis is mostly form with some context that's important."

    ReplyDelete
  48. For those of you whom read Michael Nose's letters... It is a complete joke and a total embarrassment!!! A boss writing about who he is having sex with, that he never told me "Dom" to go ahead with the Randy hit, and someone should of kicked my ass. Why didn't Michael kick my ass himself? I will tell you why he was too afraid of me. I confronted Michael and all he did was back down never said a word, lifted a hand, or asked anyone to kill me if he did I am still here writing. Michael was just a common drug addict so much so that he shot his own wife then dumped her lifeless body in the street outside the hospital emergency room. Michael is lucky to be alive as I had set up to kill him, but to his luck I was arrested two weeks prior to Michael's hit....
    I will end on this note: I would rather be a rat over and over than to have had to answer to Michael then or now. Just for the record I have remorse with the choice I made of being a rat, but I know and so did the family that loyalty was a two way street.

  49. I had a boss can.t go in to details so i get it Dom lived it and still do my own thing on a smaller scale but i hate the person who has a opinion and dont have a clue about the bussiness and deceitfullness that goes on everday its a chess match and at any moment u can be check mated. Not a fay goes by stand or not in this bussiness that today could be your last day when u get up just for ur association and the common folks and common ass hole criminal hasnt got a clue.Philly

  58. He just left for a few, but I know Big Ernie was his initial mentor, guy from the Genovese family. He was on track with the Genovese family -- but then he met Bruno Indelicato in the joint and hooked up with Vinny B.... He was also close to Quiet Dom Cirillo... I know he knew Zeke and Funzi in the Gambinos, not sure who else but he'll answer I am sure when he comes back....

  59. First, I need to clarify something on this forum, the comment by [anon InNYC • a day ago "Wow Mancuso can't even spell innocent right."] is NOT me. I guess I should have used another ID. Mine is simply "InNYC".


    Moving on, QUESTION for DOMINICK CICALE:


    From time to time, I made certain references to former Bonanno Boss, Joseph Massino, sometimes calling him "Fat Rat Joey". Mancuso would sometimes defend him. In the letter attached, he say's he's his "pal" and says "I know why you call him Fat Rat Joey He's my pal. Only one that calls him that." I think he meant to say, "I DON'T know why you call him that...


    Q1: Was MANCUSO really close to JOSEPH MASSINO, closer to him than he was to ViINNY BASCIANO?

    MANCUSO'S closest friends were/are former Underboss, NICHOLAS "NICKY MOUTH" SANTORA and TOMMY aka "TOMMY GARBAGE".


    Q2: Is "TOMMY GARBAGE" a "civilian" and Mancuso used to refer to him, meaning "not in the life" as Mancuso has said. Mancuso and Tommy grew up together since kids in East Harlem before both moved to the Bronx.

  60. Is it truly possible for two high profile mobsters to enjoy a mutually beneficial, positive, casual social relationship with each other e.g. watching sports, talking about family, going to barbecues or does mob politics and money always override and overshadow these things? Like for most mobsters, would they enjoy their closest relationships with people not in the life and keep relationships with fellow mobsters strictly business? You know what they say "keep your friends close and enemies closer". There are no true friends in that life. Everyone looks out for their own ends.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Don't know what that meant anyway, I'm smart enough to never embarrass my family and have them feel the least bit uncomfortable cause I made a thousand excuses to rat and not man up, they robbed me not loyal. Blah blah. Ur a big shot, u know 99 per of what ur saying about other people here is made up but whatever gets u threw the day garbage can. Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I know for a FACT that Basciano played them against eachother. Vinny ALWAYS tried to do that, not just with Cicale and Mancuso. He did that during his trials, playing people against others within his defense team in order to get one to "go after" the other and side with him. It was all BS on Basciano's part.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Dominick, can you clarify what you mean by this? "I will leave it at this.... A BOSS... Look at his letters"


    I'm not clear on what you mean. Thanx.

  75. Vinny was my brother and best friend until he gave me a order to testify at our trial. The Genovese crime family I was extremely close especially with the people that were in charge. The Gambino's I knew the quite well and their current official boss was a junkie when he was younger.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Scott Fappiano is one of the biggest pieces of shit on the face of the earth,. He use to turn young kids on to drugs, he also would beat woman up, his uncle Frankie Decicco hated him. He is the lowest form of life there is. Hopefully he over doses or gets killed before he rapes another woman and gets away with it. .

    ReplyDelete
  77. Cocaine & her ion when he was younger. From 2000 on I don't believe he was using any drugs.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Thanks... u posted the letters? Fantastic, please keep em coming!!

    ReplyDelete
  79. The two Crime families are definitely rebuilding, but I have to say that the Bonanno's still have power.
    Before I cooperated Vinny Basciano was the official Boss and Michael was his acting. Michael went overnight from a solider to acting boss, but I strongly feel that as guys come home from jail they will look to take over, so watch out.

  85. That's true.... I have Vinny and the rest of the Bonanno's back 1000% and was ready to do a life sentence. But after Vinny ordered me to testify at our trial and Vinny, Michael and many more of my brother's rob me out of 7 millions dollars, I decided to do the unthinkable.

  86. No not at all, Vinny was with Joe every week, something a couple a times a week. Mancuso never went to see Joe, matter a fact, Joe was upset with Vinny when Vinny made Michael Nose acting under boss.
    Again, Michael has just met Nicky when Vinny elevated the two men. Nicky is a theif and big mouth but he will kill you. Nicky had the nerve to collect $6,000 that was owed to me while I was arrested then sent me only $2,000 informing me that he need the money....
    TOMMY????

  87. I am not making excuses, but only explaining why I decided tpo turn my life around. God has got me through everything and believing in second chances in life.

    ReplyDelete
  88. No matter, I still hear, living with my choices in life.

    ReplyDelete
  89. A Crime Boss carrying on just do your time. Michael forgets he told me to go ahead and have Randy killed.

    ReplyDelete
  90. You are right, but I was will to do life until everyone screwed me over. REMEMBER... My entire case was based on Vinny's big mouth... The government never had a clue...

    ReplyDelete
  91. No Ed, Michael would pick his battles and raise his hands to people he knew would not bust a grape. I did and do not like bullies. Especially when his father's killer is walking the streets of the Bronx and Michael even says hello to the guy.

    ReplyDelete
  92. First, I need to clarify something on this forum, the comment by [anon InNYC • a day ago "Wow Mancuso can't even spell innocent
    right."] is NOT me. I guess I should have used another ID. Mine is simply "InNYC".

    Moving on, QUESTION for DOMINICK CICALE:

    From time to time, I made certain references to former Bonanno Boss, Joseph Massino, sometimes calling him "Fat Rat Joey". Mancuso would sometimes defend him. In the letter attached, he say's he's his "pal" and says "I know why you call him Fat Rat Joey He's my pal. Only one that calls him that." I think he meant to say, "I DON'T know why you call him that...

    Next, NICHOLAS SANTORA has a cousin in Middle Village (Genovese) whose father was a high-ranking guy in the Genovese family, murdered in '78. The murder had been setup by the nephew, JAMES DELIO, SR. aka "JAMESIE". As a result, James
    was murdered. The older Genovese guy's son participated in the plot and disappeared while Delio was hit. In another incident, the same guy in Middle Village was stabbed and lost use of his right arm around same time (3 decades ago). About 2 weeks later, the stabber, a Puerto Rican guy associated with the Genovese family was murdered. SANTORA once made reference to the guy being buried in Middle Village on 75th Street under a pool. A comment he later modified, then again altogether retracted.

    Q1: Was MANCUSO really close to JOSEPH MASSINO, closer to
    him than he was to ViINNY BASCIANO?

    MANCUSO'S closest friends were/are former Underboss, NICHOLAS "NICKY MOUTH" SANTORA and TOMMY aka TOMMY
    GARBAGE".

    Q2: Is "TOMMY GARBAGE" a "civilian" as Mancuso used to refer to him, meaning "not in the life" as Mancuso has said. Mancuso and Tommy grew up together since kids in East Harlem before both moved to the Bronx.

    Q3: Do you know anything about the 2 Genovese murders and;
    Q3(a) Is there any truth to the Puerto Rican guy being buried under a pool in Middle Village?

    ReplyDelete
  93. In all fairness Vinny never did that with Michael and myself. Vinny actually tried to have us get along, but I was not going to bend for Michael. I knew and know what he's about.
    Now Vinny did play people against one another while we were locked up, even ordering me to testify.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Actually, before I cooperated Vinny sent Sal the Iron worker up there to collect the Christmas money and Vito paid.
    Now if Vinny was on the street, Vinny is the type to go to Canada and take out Vito but as for the other's they do not have the balls to do so.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Sure thing, MORE TO COME: I'll be posting more on the subject of Cicale, straight from the pens of Michael Mancuso and former Bonanno Underboss' Nicholas "Nicky Mouth" Santora. We'll see what Nicky had to say...

    ReplyDelete
  96. I didnt read the book Dom so once u went in the joint that.s when the bullshit started or was it starting before u went in

    ReplyDelete
  97. Any response on Q2, Q3(a)? Dominick, feel free to at any time tell me you prefer not to comment. Thx.

    ReplyDelete
  98. It started when Vinny was arrested, but I was ok with it. When I was arrested that's when everyone was taking everything.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Also u say when came time to do a piece if work mike always tried to wiggle out I know how my guy did things but did u get to pick who goes or did the boss say who he wanted i understand if u dont answer question

    ReplyDelete
  100. TOMMY WHO????
    Have no clue

    ReplyDelete
  101. So if u make a move on the acting boss while ur out eith ur crew couldthis of been prevemted or would that be a desth sentence

    ReplyDelete
  102. I actually had the green light from Vinny. If I didn't YES it can be a death sentence. Remember, I had a powerful crew.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Dom - any interaction with Anthony Frascone, Vito Badamo or Ernie Aiello? Aiello was said by Capeci to be an up and comer. Also, any thoughts who would be a better candidate for boss in the nearby future - someone who could nudge Mancuso / DiFiore etc to the side and run with it like Massino did?

    ReplyDelete
  104. Of course the Boss can order a specific person, but usually the boss will give the work to one of his Captains and then that person will give it to he feels is best fit.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Dom, thanks for the reply. Excellent Q & A session today,except for the individual who continues to muddy the water. Anyway, what is your opinion on the current situation in Canada that has occurred over the last 4 or 5 years. Thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Anthony & Vito are not quality guys and I will keep it at that. Ernie, I do not know.
    As for Mancuso, I think Louie would be a perfect fit, but he is way too sharp to put that target on his back.

    ReplyDelete
  107. At least they had the balls to clean house, but I feel now Canada is beating its own drum. More power to them...

    ReplyDelete
  108. Louie Ha Ha you mean?

    ReplyDelete
  109. Well i hope u dont second guess ur self for not taking him out and thanks for answering my questions. A lot of common folk dont understand what goes on behind the seens i hope them questions help them understand some of what go.s on .thank u for answering ques Dom philly

    ReplyDelete
  110. what the heck is wrong with this? I signed in and it puts me as "Guest" above WTF! That's MY posting with the questions and photos...don't know what's happening here (user error?)

    ReplyDelete
  111. What about the Genovese murders of James Delio, Sr. and the Puerto Rican guy - the person responsible lives in the big house on the corner of Eliot Ave in Middle Village, white picket fence. Do you know anything about it and was Nicky Santora telling the truth about the "pool".

    ReplyDelete
  112. Word is on the street that Anthony Chicchetti south Brooklyn boss the real one, and SKINNY JOEY MERLINO ARE gonna be united. A power house. Soon as Joey is released.

    ReplyDelete
  113. No.. Even though I can not stand Michael Nose, I am glad I did not get the chance to act and take him out. I am in a better place these days.
    I am sure once he is released someone else will.
    Thank you

    ReplyDelete
  114. As always Ed and Dom Great Job with this format and good questions by ur readers wish u the best stay safe gonna start dinner and watch the games carolina to cover and Baltimore outright lol enjoy philly

    ReplyDelete
  115. Nicky talks a lot of bull. EXAMPLE: Nicky said that he was the one responsible for the three Captains getting killed. Joe M called Nicky a asshole and was happy that Nicky was thanking the heat off of him.
    I don't know, but if I had to guess, Nicky is full of shit.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Could you describe your making ceremony?? Did Fat Rat prick ur finger?? Who else got made?? How was the party afterwards?? Was it the proudest moment of your life, at that point in time....

  118. Sorry, but that's info is coming in the next book...

  120. Ahh I see... Wiseguy always looking for a buck... Lol I understand. We will be shocked by what?? The after party? I'm picturing the Sopranos episode when Chrissy gets made and I'm guessing it involves you and multiple Bing Girls... Maybe some blow;)

  126. Who are the alleged mayors and senators that you rubbed shoulders with?

    ReplyDelete
  127. When u say not the Chin but Genovese do u mean they were just best at concealing their boss the most over the years

    ReplyDelete
  128. Vito Genovese for the best boss ever? How come?

    ReplyDelete
  129. The person in charge there I do not want to blow up.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Just not my favorite, but can be strongly considered

    ReplyDelete
  131. Oh, I misunderstood you. The question was "Best boss ever" and you said "Genovese for boss". I didn't realize you talked about the family and not Vito as an individual.

    ReplyDelete
  132. No not alleged, I have proof... That's for the book... SORRY!!!

    ReplyDelete
  133. Dom will be on for a little while longer, but he'll be checking in now and then -- comment section will remain open until tomorrow morning.... Dom may then decide to answer additional questions -- but in my book, he's done more than enough for the week!!!! Thank you, again, Dom!!

    ReplyDelete
  134. That ok, I just did not want to expose that person. Way to much respect for him.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Is it the one who lost a wife to cancer not so long ago?

    ReplyDelete
  136. We've just began 2015. So much has changed. DOMINICK, Too bad you can't capitalize (even more) on your former and present life. I don't watch that MobWives crap but wouldn't it be great to have a reality show with REAL WISEGUYS? I know security is an issue but there has to be a way around it. Cameras go into prisons all the time and I watch documentaries on gangs in Chicago, LA, etc. Who's to say you can't follow a mob boss inside prison? Maybe if the BOP was making some dough off it, it could fly...just a thought. haha


    Oh, by the way, there's been a lot of talk about "rats" and "loyalty" to the Families and Cosa Nostra. I'm all for loyalty but when somebody crosses you, all bets are off. I may look like a jerk-off posting Mancuso's letters but one thing, I'm sure Cicale would back, is that Michael always protects the people he shouldn't and betrays the people he should be loyal to - especially when he expects them to be loyal to him. He protected another person and refused to name them where I was concerned, to this day, he refused to name them. So? Cosa Nostra News and the entire world will continue to see his personal comments and letters. The Bonanno Family will get wind of it and it'll reflect on Mancuso's position within the Family's ranks post prison. How's that for "loyalty"...

    Who were the scariest? Had the most bodies, etc?
    Thanks

  138. Rumors spread that Vinny was a real stand up guy who always paid back his debt, even if it would mean for him to work 9-5. Is that true?

    ReplyDelete
  139. Vinny did pay his debts, but I wish he paid what he owed me. It was only $1,300,000.00

    How many people do you think Ace killed?
    Was he an earner or just a shooter?
    So young that guy..

    ReplyDelete
  142. Lawyer fees...what can you do!? Besides, if he told you to testify and not go on trial yourself, didn't he save you of time in jail?

    ReplyDelete
  143. If it's who I am thinking because I did not have a clue she passed. My heart goes out to him, she was a wonderful person, always smiling.

    ReplyDelete
  144. His kids are lawyers and/or doctors, if I'm not mistaken. The "chosen one".

    ReplyDelete
  145. No we were going to take our case to trial. During that trail I was ordered to take the witness stand on our behalf, so I would be labeled a RAT for the rest of my life because of it.

    ReplyDelete
  146. So you mean the current one no one really knows.... Interesting

    ReplyDelete
  147. Queens District Attorney's Office as well, but not just with the Bonanno family but the Genovese family as well. One particular assistant, Robert Masters. That's not hearsay, nor is it speculation. I used to think it was "cool" that in Queens, people in our circles had somebody with authority within the families. After a while, I began to realize how wrong it was and that POS (Asst.DA) deserved to be in prison along with the other criminals.


    Some of the guys (Genovese and Bonanno) used to talk about the connections involving construction bids and the whole connection to that jerkoff in the DA's Office. LOL Sorry BOB! Go fuck yourself if you don't like what you're reading!

    ReplyDelete
  148. Yeah and the order came from Vinny(those are your own words), so essentially he saved you from time in prison. No money can buy you freedom.

    ReplyDelete
  149. This was Ace's first piece of work, till this day it breaks my heart with him. He has a lot of great qualities.

    ReplyDelete
  150. People know but he is so undercover I have to respect it.

  155. Do the Rizzutos still kick up to Bonannos? Or did they break off?

    ReplyDelete
  156. I do not look at it in that sense, but I see your point. I am grateful for a clean slate with a fresh start in life, but I had to sell my soul to the devil.

    ReplyDelete
  157. I would have to say they broke off, especially after Sal the iron worker was killed.

  171. Vincent i know Joey hangs with NY guys in Boca
    i don.t know who Anthony Chicchetti is or if he would want u to mention that if it was true.
    It would be disastrous for everyone involved
    Joey has enough on his plate at home. Im from phila area can.t see that one happening. Philly

  172. Dom....you have been more than generous, do you feel the lack of RICO in canada has been the main reason vito s family grew so strong?

    They seem to have gone from a bonanno crew to literally a 6th family. I assume they were bigger than both jersey and philly.

  176. No... I did extremely well, it was easy. The institution I was in was soft, it was a low medium

  177. Actually they separated when Vito came home and when Sal the iron work was killed.
    So, yes I would have to say they are now the sixth family... WITH BALL.....

    ReplyDelete
  188. He actually spoke about it in one of his letters. I didn't think it was amusing enough to post - until you mentioned it. Now it's kinda funny. LOL When he first sent that photo to me, the one I posted of him standing against the wall at the BOP in Edgefield, the thing I noticed more than anything was that he was smiling in the photo like he was on vacation in Tahiti or something; like he was having the time of his life. The only thing missing in the photo was a "Wish You Were Here" caption.

    Michael does have a funny side, however. I laughed when I read this letter about the Feds and his expression. See the comment about the fictitious case law he cited as "LOLA" and the comment about the "hillbilly":
