Gloucester Fishermen’s Memorial Service

When Marlon Brando was preparing to play Corleone, he listened to tapes of Costello testifying to the Kefauver Committee on Organized Crime.

Carlo Gambino never went to jail and also died of natural causes, though it was in 1976, after The Godfather came out. Corleone and Gambino had three sons and a daughter. The Gambino Family had a “deal and die” policy on heroin and both were bugged by the fucking FBI, who don’t respect nothing.

Giuseppe “Joe” Profaci was born on October 2, 1897 in Villabate, a province in Palermo, Sicily. He came to America on the same boat as future Gambino family boss Vincent Mangano and his brother Phillip. Profaci was the Olive Oil king of Long Island. Corleone also imported olive oil (so did my great grandfather Don Guiseppe Giannusa, but that didn’t make him Mafiosi). Profaci was at the December 5, 1928 mafia summit thrown by Cleveland boss Joseph Porello at the Statler Hotel. While his Angara BezelSet Amethyst Stud Earrings in Yellow Gold kIZqRx
-sanctioned family was one of the biggest in the Commission, Profaci’s legitimate business protected him from tax evasion charges. But he wasn’t protected from going to the mattresses.

While The Godfather Part II is known for examining how Don Vito Corleone came to sit at the table of New York’s five families of crime, The Godfather detailed a very specific mob insurrection: The Gallo-Profaci wars of the late fifties.

The Gallo-Profaci war was the biggest mob war since the Castellammarese war, named for the town of Castellammarese del Golfo of Sicily, of 1930-31. Joseph Bonanno told Gay Talese, for the book Honor Thy Father , the story of how the bloody gang war gave rise to the Commission and the price. The Gallo-Profaci war took the lives of 13 gang members and changed the Profaci Family name to Colombo. The mafia mythology of The Godfather would have you believe that “sleeping with the fishes” was an old Sicilian message, but it only went back about a decade to the time a gang that couldn’t shoot straight went to the mattresses on President’s Street in Brooklyn.

“Crazy” Joe “The Blond” Gallo and his brothers Kid Blast and Larry ran rackets for the Profaci Family. Joe Gallo is credited as being one of the “Barbershop Quintet” that did the job on Albert “the Lord High Executioner” Anastasia while he was getting a shave. The Gallo brothers thought the high profile execution of the man who co-created Murder Inc. would raise their profiles and fatten their wallets, but they found themselves stuck at the same dead end.

The Gallo Wars started in 1960. It was the first time a mob family hierarchy was openly challenged. Joe Gallo put together a plan to kidnap the top tier of the Profaci family, much like “the Turk,” Virgil Sollozzo, bagged the Corleone family consigliere Tom Hayden, played by Robert Duvall. Profaci escaped the kidnapping, but his brother-in-law and underboss Joe Magliocco was nabbed along with four Profaci caporegimes. Word is that Joe wanted to whack one of the hostages and demand money before the talks started, but Larry talked him out of it.

Others, like Alfred Ndrabu of the Catholic church 's Justice and Peace commission in Ituri, cited witnesses who claimedthe attack had been carried out by the Lendu and their allies. He said the Lendu had been initially repulsed by security forces but that they "returned with reinforcements, which was when they perpetrated the carnage." He claims 49 bodies have been recovered so far.

Jean-Bosco Lalo, an activist in Bunia,said43 people had been killed. Hedid not saywho initiated the attack,whichwent on through the night into Friday, but described the situation thus: "Only this morning could we start to count the dead. We saw burnt and mutilated bodies."

DR Congo's looming humanitarian disaster

Fleeing from violence

After years of sporadic low-level violence, the last two months have seen more than 100 people killed, hundreds of homes burnt and 200,000 people forced to flee the area.

More than 28,000 displaced Ituri residents, many of themwomen and children, have fled across the DRC's border into Uganda in recent weeks.

The eastern DRC has registered a sharp increase in militia activity near its borders with Uganda and Rwanda over the past year.

UN reviews UN troop training

Also on Friday, the UN conceded that the December attack in North Kivu province that killed 15 peacekeepers and left 43 others wounded had exposed "gaps" in training. UN investigators found the mission "did not have an actionable contingency plan to reinforce and extract its peacekeepers during the attack."
