The Gambino Rap Sheet
departed_ybnby_gambino.jpg
Let's go on record as stating we have nothing but respect and admiration for members of the Italian community in New York. In fact, our favorite pizza is the Sicilian. When we heard about the tragedy of the arrests that happened to the Gambino family today, we were outraged.

But we sure got a kick out of reading their rap sheet. While it may not have the character of mob nicknames, it does provide some colorful reading. For instance:
  • DANIEL MARINO is a longtime member and is currently a Boss of the Gambino Family. (Uh, do the Dolphins know about this? Fuck, does Isotoner know about this?)
  • The defendants first recruited various young women and girls -- ages 15 through 19 -- to work as prostitutes. The defendants then advertised the prostitution business on Craigslist and other websites. (You're saying you can get a used Sunfish AND an underage prostitute on Craigslist? That site really does have it all!)
  • Charged with defrauding various high-end restaurants in New York City by inflating invoices for meat orders. (I knew my steak at Delmonico's tasted a bit East River-y)
Some of these charges are absolutely brutal, including several heinous murders, beatings, and the underage sex trafficking. But it sure makes for some heavy afternoon reading ... with all respect.

curious as to why you have a screenshot of a movie about Irish gangsters ?

Simple: The Departed is a great movie. Also, images of The Godfather and Goodfellas are overused when describing the mob. Finally, if you'll recall, associates from an Italian family get the short end of the stick by Costello's men. So there, that's why I put up a screenshot of an Irish gangster film to represent Italian mobsters getting arrested.
