Joe Bruno on the Mob – Genovese Mobster Gets Life Sentence

 

Nothing gets a prosecutor’s rocks off better than putting a Mafia bigwig in jail for life.

This is not excusing the crimes of Arthur Nigro. He was found guilty of ordering the 2003 murder of Massachusetts crime boss Adolfo (Big Al) Bruno (No relation). And bad guys like this deserve to get put away. But I still have to snicker at the remarks made at Nigro’s sentencing by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.

Bharara, who was born in Punjab, India said, “The catalog of vicious and lethal crimes committed by these three defendants provides a stark reminder of the lengths to which the mob will go to protect their turf and exact revenge. With today’s sentences, these men will now be put out of the Mafia’s ugly and violent business for life.”

I just wish for once, American law enforcement would put just as much time and energy in the arrest and prosecution of criminals of all nationalities, not just Italian/Americans. The Albanian, Russian, Chinese, Mexican, Dominican, and West Indian gangsters in America are just as violent, if not more so, than the Italian Mafia.

But I keep forgetting, Mafia makes headlines and advances the careers of all involved in their arrest and prosecution. The other nationalities get much less attention, and when they are arrested and convicted, it makes maybe page 10 in American newspapers, if it gets any press at all

Mafia makes PAGE ONE.

Just the simple truth.

One-time Genovese mob boss Arthur Nigro gets life for ordering hit

The one-time acting head of the Genovese crime family was sentenced to life Monday for ordering a Massachusetts mob hit.

Arthur Nigro, 67, of the Bronx, was convicted of ordering the slaying of Massachusetts crime boss Adolfo (Big Al) Bruno.

Two others, triggerman Ty Geas, 39, and his brother, Fotios (Freddy) Geas, 44, both of West Springfield, Mass., also got life sentences for the 2003 hit.

All three were convicted at an April trial of murder, racketeering and other charges for killing Bruno and conspiring to kill two other men, Gary Westerman and Louis Santos, who they believed ratted them out to the FBI.

“The catalogue of vicious and lethal crimes committed by these three defendants provides a stark reminder of the lengths to which the mob will go to protect their turf and exact revenge,” U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said.

“With today’s sentences, these men will now be put out of the Mafia’s ugly and violent business for life.”
