Couldn’t hardly put this book down, Joe Bruno has written a gripping book about one of the more vile individuals in modern times, and I like how he lets the reader know he did a lot of research on said individual but knows he is a vile rat bastard. Will read more of Joe Bruno’s work.

WHAT MAKES A RAT, A RAT? RATS ARE NOT MADE; PEOPLE ARE BORN RATS – Mathew J. Mari – New York City Criminal Attorney for 38 years

“Contrary to popular opinion, rats are born and not made.

People think law enforcement ‘turns’ people into rats by persuading them to ‘turn state’s evidence,’ as the old saying goes. There is a difference between the verb ‘rat,’ which is what a lot of people do, and the noun ‘rat,’ which is what a lot of people are.

Real men don’t rat because they still have to look at themselves in the mirror. The reason they don’t rat is not because of some oath of silence (omerta), or because they are afraid of being killed, but because they simply ARE NOT RATS. The people who rat (the verb) do it because they ARE RATS (the noun). The people who rat were born rats and simply do what they were born to do when the circumstances benefit them.

It’s really that simple.”

*****

Sonny Gerard – Mob Author and former member of organized crime.

Sonny served seven years in federal prison after being convicted of racketeering under the RICO statute.

“To some degree I agree with Mr. Mari, but not entirely, as it does not explain the large number of rats today compared to the past heyday of the mob.

First, there was a past loyalty based on shared experiences. Guys grew up together in neighborhoods, saved each other from harm, dated each other’s sisters, and ate in each other’s houses. Today, wannabes grow up in the suburbs. The only person they ever needed to survive was their mothers.

Secondly, the term ‘wiseguys’ was coined; not ‘stupidguys.’ When mob guys see rats are getting book deals, sitting under palm trees with bikini-clad girls next to them, and no one takes them out, the mob guys question their own intelligence.

Yes, there are men who look in the mirror and like what they see: Junior & Allie Boy Persico, John Gotti, and many others who were not bosses. They grew up in a neighborhood where everyone knew everything they did, and everyone despised rats; even while some of them were dry snitches (Lucky Luciano and Meyer Lansky were rats who sent Jake Lansky – Meyer’s brother – to the IRS with Waxey Gordon’s books to get Gordon out of their hair). Today, society encourages snitching; even on one’s parents.

All I know is – I have no problem looking in the mirror while I shave every morning.”
