To really understand my life youd have to know my background where I came from shit like that I was born in one of the many ghettos in new york brooklyn to be exact tiffany josephine jones on April 5th 1955 my father was a poor factory worker who I called daddy nigger behind his back don’t get me wrong I loved my father he just acted like a nigger meaning he acted like he had no education and treated his hunky boss like a piece of gold talking about how he was “good white folk” he hated anyone black who were against whites hed even spend his money at the wops number rackets my mother was fuckin great she only dealt with whites when she had to wasnt afraid of them and would speak her mind if they said the wrong thing she ran a small seamstress business and the wops muscled her out of a percentage when I was real young around 8 I became best friends with this sicilian broad named angelina michelle milano who lived in the italian ghetto section of brooklyn her father was the sicilian version of mine loved the bastards who were trying to keep us in the ghetto hated gangsters mobsters people who said fuck this crooked law and did what they had to do to get out of poverty I me and angel admired men like that we were both mature and overdeveloped for our ages body wise if you get my drift we were curvy you know small waist round ass big jugs I was a 34c when I was 12 and angel was a 38b and on top of that we were blessed with looks and looks got you everrywhere where were from we stopped developing at 16 I was curvy and a 36d and angel was curvy and a 38c we lied about our ages so we could work at the hot spot in the new york underworld a lot of mafioso and wannabes hung out there it was called ozzy’s play parlor and located in brooklyn it was a stip joint whorehouse and bar all in one mobsters and empty suits came there to discuss things get a drink and get a quick fuck without their wives finding out ozzy found out from fucking leach detective vollero we were 16 but he let us keep our waitressing jobs most of the time angel made twice the tips I did cause some of those bastards didnt want a black chick to bring their drinks we all wore a mini skirt with a garter attached heels corsets and lacy thigh highs we looked like hookers a lot of the girls who thought they were hot shit ended up being turned out and became hookers our parents didnt find out about us working there because wed pretend like we were going to school and go to work there and were out at 3 so it was like wed been at school all day eventually angel caught the eye of sal the plumber who was the counselor in the villari crime family in new york he was 40 married with a 19year old son but was loaded and she became his mistress goumada whore whatever you want to call it I started seeing a junk dealer who was slaving I mean working for the johnson family he had to give them 20% of the profit he made from selling dope it was that or be dead and someone else would take his place his name was tyrell sanders he was black basically a militant hated anyone who wasnt black and he was extremely sexy the johnson family was the only powerful black crime family at this time but I was happy he drove a dark blue cadillac and always wore silk suits and dress shoes and loved to smoke cigars he’d always take me to the hottest blck clubs and buy me whatever I wanted I decided to move out my parents house and move in with him he lived in a nice home in elizabeth new jersey angel moved into her own apartment which sal paid for and he bought her a mercedes tyrell got me a lincoln we were happy but they both hated that we liked working at ozzy’s and didnt want to quit 2 of the villari brothers started coming in and had a thing for us their names were vito and leonardo leo was supposibly the boss and vito the underboss vito was 26 and leo 28 theyd give us a 100 tip everytime they came leo would tip me and vito would tip angel then 1 day vito: angelina that’s your

handsome tall and skinny and leo was handsome tall and muscular leo had short black hair he always wore brushed back and leo had short wavy black hair they both wore suits all the time and smoked cigars leo drove a rolls royce and vito was always in a limo women swarmed around them like bees to honey a few weeks later tyrell was shot down in front of our house after he tried to break off from the johnson’s and sal the plumber was shot down in front of his house when he went outside to get the newspaper I was torn up about it and so was angel and ozzy letus stay with him because the whole time tyrell was married and his wife got everything and so did sal’s once I found out tyrell was married I got over his murder and thought he got what he deserved it became hell at ozzy he insisted we fuck him to stay with him and keep our jobs and when we didnt he’d beat and rape us he knew we had nowhere to go after 2 months of us being there then one night I was in the kitchen when I heard a crash and ozzy yelling coming in his room like he was in pain I pulled out the 9mm in his kitchen drawer and before guido his fuckin muscleman could go in ozzy’s room or pull out his gun I unloaded the 9mm on him it was my first time holding and shooting a gun and it felt good once he hit the floor I walked to ozzy’s room angel came out covered in blood me: what the fuck happened to you angel: I fuckin stabbed the bastard to death he wanted to fuck I didnt so when the jamook punched me in my fuckin mouth I got up told him to lay down and close his eyes when he did I took the letter opener that was on his nightstand and started stabbing him with it he was screaming like a bitch where’s guido me: I shot him down with this and showed her the gun and we started laughing angel : what are we going to do me: we take us some money and burn the house down ozzy was 20grand in the shitter had a lot of enemies no1 knew we were staying here angel:whatabout the cops me: fuck them they cant prove

my lincoln and we drove off that night ozzy’s brother was running the club and when the villari brother’s came in we asked them to take us out and they did we went to the opera and out to dinner I left with leo and angel left with vito me and leo ended up oing back to his place and fucking he didnt care that I was then 17 and he was 29 the next day me and angel got an apartment it was sotr of a dump but ok she fucked vito the night before after a month and a half me and angel ran off to vegas to marry leo and vito leo bought us a 5 bedroom 5 bathroom house in long island I knew his neighbors and some of his friends hated me but I didnt give a fuck and they knew not to run their fuckin mouths I was no longer allowed to drive and had a chaffeur who drove me wherever I wanted to go in a limo I even had a maidand leo had georgio gollow me around he was l of leo’s musclemen he eventually decided to show me around his business and how to operate it if anything happened to him leo:tiff if anything happens to me I want my famiglia to go to you I love you so much and I don’t trust anyone else to run it in my absence vito likes his temper is to hot and he has a big fuckin mouth and the rest of my brother’s are legit unless you don’t want to learn the business me: of course I do leo and I love you to I want to have a family to leo: tiffany it’ll happen soon enough weve been fuckin like jackrabbits now back to what I was saying rule number one you keep the organization private noone is to know how we operate our codes names of members anything you give your life before exposing the family or ratting you get pinched you go down alone that doesn’t apply to you if you became boss cause another rule is that the don/boss is to be protected at all costs rule number 2 always send contracts and other deals down the chain of commands the only 1 who should hear your plans is the advisor and the underdog and buffer if you have one no1 else is suppose to hear it from you the chain of commands in the villari organiztion is goes from you to advisor to your vice president to lieutenanat to solider who takes care of the problem never get involved with lower ranking members could cause you to get pinched next never write anything down don’t discuss business on the phone if they cant meet you in person wait till they can when you have problems with another organization’s members or boss call for a sitdown before having anyone whaacked unless it was something heinous they did then handle it always keep a piece me:whats a piece leo: a gun I got you one it’s a custom made 9mm silver with pink lining and your nickname engraved in pink on both sides hold it see if you like it me: I love it if I went somewhere and needed to be strapped where would I put it leo then got on his knees and pushed my dress up and adjusted a pink strap around my leg and stuck the gun in it me:why there and whats this thing leo: this is a gun holster vito got angel 1 just like it they never rub a woman between the legs when their searching her tiff you will always have a muscle with you but if something happens you need to be prepared that’s how a lot of bosses meet their death depending on their muscle and not having a piece tiffany did I never told you about my father he started the villari family and I took over when I was 20 because his best friend who was also his right hand man had him whacked by a couple of small timers when I thought it was him I had him meet me at the villari bookmaking business and I walked up to him told him that I knew he had my father whacked when I reelly didnt he admitted he was behind it but claimed it was for the family and begged for his life I made him kiss my shoe and I shot him in the back and watched him suffer and bleed to death I took over and been in charge since me: you killing that bastard turns me on he then carried me to the bed and we made love the next day angel showed me her gun it was like mine but in red and had angel on the side she said vito was a coke addict and a few days later I walked past leo’s office and overheard leo yelling and I knew vito was in his office leo: you fuckin shit head I could fuckin

Mar. 7th, 2007 | 08:35 pm

I was born Francesca Maria Macchione on January 10, 1972 to Angela and Francesco Macchione Mamma was a Sicilian and black woman light skinned long wavy dark brown hair and dark-brown eyes she had a perfect hour glass figure around 5 foot 5 inches in height and was abnormally beautiful she was eighteen when I was born she was the daughter of Jamie and Vincent Roselli who I called nonno and nonna uno they lived in Coral Gables Floridanonno uno was a legit businessman who despised men like my papa nonno uno owned a chain of hotels an Italian restaurant in a palm beach and some real estate no one ever spoke badly of him he was a short chubby Sicilian man with short black hair and black eyes he was around 5 foot 4 inches and had a natural tanned complexion nonna uno was a dark complected beautiful black woman around 5 foot 6 inches was a homemaker and had the same hour glass figure as mamma shoulder length dark brown hair and hazel eyes mamma was second to the youngest in her family Aunt Paula was the oldest and aunt Alana the youngest I loved it at nonno and nonna uno’s nonna uno always took us shopping and I got to eat whatever I wanted. My papa was a very handsome Sicilian man he had short wavy black hair he always had brushed back and black eyes he was about 5 foot 10 inches in height muscular with a very violent temper he had a lot of enemies and a lot of admirers and neither spoke badly of him and none of his enemies were dumb enough to cross him papa was a businessman some legal some not he owned two gentlemen's clubs in Chicago an Italian eatery in Cicero an apartment complex in cicero I heard he was still in control of great nonno Macchione's number racket operation and loan sharking business and I knew he owned a place everyone called the poolyard he was 20 when I was born and had four brothers and one sister uncle Paolo was the oldest then there was uncle Angelo uncle Aldo papa and aunt maria he was the son of Francesco Macchione the second and maria Macchione whom I called nonno and nonna nonno was a handsome Sicilian man around 5 foot 11 and slim with short wavy black hair and black eyes, he was an honest retired attorney and he also owned some real estate papa said he was criticized a lot for defending people that were labeled as mobsters and gangsters and drug dealers and getting the a really reduced sentence probation or cleared of all charges I finally reached the age when I was too nosy for my own good and started asking questions me: nonno what are gangsters and mafioso and why did you defend them aren’t they bad people? nonno: they’re just names people come up with to label other people who live differently then they do what these men do is bad but who am I or anyone else to judge them this country is based on lies bigotry and murder I defended them because all money is green to me those people made it possible for me to retire and give my kids the best of everything you got to stick to your gut do what you believe in not what people tell you is right and you are going to learn that no matter how law abiding how successful you are you can’t escape the Macchione name there’s a lot of bad history tied to that name because of your great-grandfather my father so a lot of ignorant people are going to assume were all bad no matter how Much you've proved them wrong. Nonna was a beautiful naturally dark complected Sicilian woman around 5 foot four with and an hour glass figure long thick wavy black hair and black eyes she came to America from lercara friddi Sicily when she was 13 in 1932 she was hired as a nanny for the Macchione's that’s how she met nonno she was 51 when I was born to completely understand how my family is different you would have to know our history it all started with great-grandfather Macchione my aunt his daughter told me the whole story life for a Macchione female isn’t easy even though we have everything a girl could want to truly understand you have to have a father tied up in this thing they call an organized crime family or what Pappa calls the organization you know the names the mafia the Cosa Nostra the Syndicate, the outfit, and the office. To name a few we’ve been loved feared and hated by people well never know great grandpa Macchione was born Francesco Mario Macchione on August 12, 1882 in Palermo Sicily he and parents and his four sisters and five brothers came to America when he six and settled in an Italian ghetto in Brooklyn New York his life of crime started when he was 16 with crimes like petty theft and car jacking the fact that he was Sicilian and had been in trouble with the law and hated cops anyone in law enforcement caught the eye of Sicilian don Michael madonia and. Within 10 years he went from associate to underboss of the madonia family eventually him double-crossed madonia had him murdered and took over the madonia family even though madonia loved and trusted him and treated him like a son he changed. It to the Macchione family and was involved in extortion the number rackets money laundering had a loan sharking and bookmaking business and a few brothels and strip clubs he was forbidden fruit to my great-grandmother Sophia but somehow she gave him a chance after six months married him and had four kids she eventually saw him as the cold-hearted man he was and how terrified people were of him because he’d have someone wacked just cause they didn’t agree with him he was labeled the most cold-hearted don of all time some called him don Satan then one day she walked in on him beating his advisor to death with a bat for giving him bad advice she planned on taking the kids and leaving the country but a great grandpa found out her plans and a few weeks later she was found in The trunk of her car shot a ton of times great grandpa Macchione loved for his victims bodies to pop up to fuck with the cops cause they couldn’t touch him he had too many paid off and they never could prove he was behind it she was only a 37-great grandpa was boss from 1912 to 1947 when he chose to retire he died on December 4th 1982 of a Heart attack at the age of 95 he confessed to my aunt cause were Catholic and believe you have to confess your sins before you die to make peace with god nonno and great grandpa didn’t get along he said great grandpa was a coward and he knew he was the one who had his mamma wacked and a great grandpa said nonno was a sap in fact nonno didn’t want anything to do with Anything illegal he became his fathers opposite great-aunt allesssandra who told me the whole Macchione story was a nurse and her husband was a doctor great-aunt prascilla became some gangster in Baltimore wife great-uncle santino became a surgeon and never been in any kind of trouble from the time me and my sister Angela and our friend’s Lucia deluca Mercedes moretti franca lombardo anna and annamaria marcello were born our fathers. Had our lives planned out and not even our mothers had a say in it they planned everything from what college we would attend to who we would marry our mothers didn’t work they just took care of home and pretended like our fathers were legit and they knew nothing about all the illegal shit they did mamma would tell anyone that asked papa was a hardworking businessman and was only hounded by detectives and the FBI and reporters cause he and his friends were Italians and Sicilians and people just wanted to slap that mafia label on them if mamma did know anything she was good at hiding it according to the papers and the dicks who were investigating papa uncle Bruno Uncle johnny uncle vinny uncle bobby were part of an organized crime family the Macchione famiglia he had taken over after great grandpa’s Nephew stepped down and he was the don uncle johnny was the buffer uncle vinny the messenger boy and uncle bobby one of the lieutenants the Macchione famiglia had at least 20 lieutenants 100 soldiers and 150 associates uncle Joey was his counselor and uncle Bruno his underboss great story but no evidence to back it up they said papa was just as ruthless as great grandpa but he let. Anyone who was Italian in his family while great grandpa was restricted to Sicilians only he didn’t like or trust non Sicilians none of them was my actual uncles we call them that cause papa grew up with them and look at them like brothers I would admit our life was far from normal but thought that mafia and papa being a don shit was too far fetched my parent had sort of a big family. There were five of us my brother’s Francesco the 4th whom we called Frances he was only 15 at the time but girls swarmed around him like bees to honey santino whom we called tino who was mean and 14 then there was my older sister Angela named after mamma whom we called Angie and Who was 11 then there was I everyone called me fran or frannie I was 10 our mamma was an obedient housewife most of the time who lived a life of luxury she wore this gold necklace with two heart pendants interlocking each other and diamonds went around it and the pendants were an emerald and a ruby rumor was they were stolen jewels and the whole necklace was worth 60 million reporters would be around our house every day trying to get a story out of us and never. Did the papers always tried to make it look like papa was some gangster and he wasn’t uncle Carlo and Frankie would break their cameras and throw change at them when they caught them which was funny papa went on a lot of business trips and we could never go uncle Carlo and Frankie stayed with us till papa came back they weren’t our real uncles either just really close to papa when papa returned they would go home and papa would take us out on the town when we finally got back home we would have to pack so we could stay at an available relatives house so mamma and papa could have alone time and when we got home the next day mamma would be overly happy uncle Joey was who papa called when he was pissed he called him fat Joey He was a handsome chubby Italian man around 5 foot seven in height with short black hair and black eyes he usually wore glasses he was a retired attorney our mother's were only allowed to hangout and socialize with each other and mrs.appleton and mrs.halpern mrs.

Meyer Lansky (born Majer Suchowliński, July 4, 1902 – January 15, 1983) was an American gangster who, with Charles "Lucky" Luciano, was instrumental in the development of the so-called "National Crime Syndicate" in the United States. He was the intellectual impetus behind the Commission and the so-called "Mogul of the Mob." Interestingly, while nearly all Lansky's contemporary criminal associates were either arrested or murdered, Lansky himself served only a small sentence and died a natural death.

[edit] Emigration and childhood
Born in Grodno, Russian Empire (now Hrodna, Belarus) to Polish Jewish parents, his family emigrated to the United States in 1911 and settled in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New York. While Lansky was in school, he met a young Lucky Luciano, who shook down other kids for protection money. When Lansky refused to pay, Luciano fought him, but came away impressed with the younger boy's toughness, creating a bond that would make them friends for life.

Lansky met Bugsy Siegel when he was a teenager. They also became friends for life and, together with Luciano, formed a lasting partnership. Lansky was instrumental in Luciano's rise to power, when he helped organize the 1931 murder of mafia powerhouse, Salvatore Maranzano. As a youngster, Lansky's life was saved many times by Siegel, a fact Lansky always appreciated. The two of them managed the Bug and Meyer Mob adroitly, despite its being one of the most violent Prohibition mobs.

[edit] Adult crimes
Lansky had established gambling operations in Florida, New Orleans and Cuba by 1936, the year Luciano was convicted and sent to prison. As Alfred McCoy records,

"During the 1930s, Meyer Lansky "discovered" the Caribbean for northeastern syndicate bosses and invested their illegal profits in an assortment of lucrative gambling ventures... He was also reportedly responsible for organized crime's decision to declare Miami a "free city" (i.e., not subject to the usual rules of territorial monopoly)." [citation needed]
Lansky also became a big investor in Siegel's Las Vegas project. After Al Capone's 1931 conviction for tax evasion, he transferred illegal funds from his casinos to Europe, where he opened up a numbered bank account following the 1934 Swiss Banking Act.[citation needed] Later, according to Lucy Komisar, he would even buy an offshore bank in Switzerland, which he used for money laundering through a network of shell and holding companies. ("Offshore Banking: The Secret Threat to America," Dissent, Spring 2003)

[edit] War work
During World War II, Lansky would be instrumental in the Office of Naval Intelligence's efforts to recruit the criminal underworld into keeping an eye out for German infiltrators and submarine-borne saboteurs, in Operation Underworld.

In the 1930s, Lansky and his gang stepped outside their usual activities to break rallies held in sympathy of Nazi Germany. Lansky himself recollected that at a rally in Yorkville (a neighborhood in Manhattan dominated by German immigrants) he and about 14 others:

The stage was decorated with a swastika and a picture of Hitler. The speakers started ranting. There were only fifteen of us, but we went into action. We threw some of them out the windows. . . . Most of the Nazis panicked and ran out. We chased them and beat them up... We wanted to show them that Jews would not always sit back and accept insults[1].

[edit] Gambling is abolished in Cuba
After Luciano was paroled on the condition that he return to Sicily and never leave Italy, Luciano secretly moved to Cuba, from where he began to resume his control over the American mafia operations. He also ran a number of casinos with the sanction of Cuban president General Fulgencio Batista (who received a percentage). After the Cuban revolution of 1959, which saw the rise of Fidel Castro and the end of Batista's tenure, new Cuban president Manuel Urrutia Lleó ordered the casinos to be shut, and Lansky moved on to elsewhere in the Caribbean, particularly the Bahamas. Lansky's loss in Cuba was devastating, but it did not slow him down.

[edit] The Flamingo Problem
Siegel's projects in Las Vegas were failing miserably and all mafia bosses, Lansky included, were summoned to a secret meeting in Havana. While everyone else wanted Siegel killed, Lansky begged for a second chance for his friend. He was able to persuade the bosses to give Siegel a second chance, but Siegel's casino kept on losing money and a second meeting was called. This time, the casino was able to turn in a small profit during the month of their second meeting, and that, together with Lansky's pleading and Luciano's hopes their old friend could still do good in Vegas, convinced them to give Siegel a third chance. That small profit turned out to be only a small hurrah and led to a third meeting. It was decided Siegel had to go. He had humiliated the organized crime bosses and never had a chance. It is widely believed that Meyer Lansky himself gave the final okay. Only twenty minutes after the hit, Lansky's associates (including Gus Greenbaum and Moe Sedway) walked into the Flamingo Hotel and announced that Siegel was no longer in the picture, they were taking over. According to the FBI, Lansky had a substantial interest in the Flamingo and did so for over twenty years.

Lansky in 1958
[edit] Later years
Meyer Lansky kept a very low profile and his days in Miami Beach were filled with routine. The FBI had a very tough time pursuing him. His associates usually met him in malls and crowded locations. Lansky's chauffeur was known to drive him around town to look for payphones. So elusive was Lansky, the FBI pretty much gave up on him by the mid-1970s. He kept very little in his name and seemed to be just another struggling old man. The truth was, Meyer Lansky never owned property. He owned people who owned property. Among Lansky's fronts were Sam Cohen, Alvin Malnik and Benjamin Sigelbaum. Malnik had originally started working for Lansky associate, Al Mones in the late 1950s. Malnik's rise in the Lansky organization was fast and by 1970, he had seemingly become the most valuable player. After Lansky's death in 1983, Alvin Malnik's power became more visible than ever. Law enforcement officials have long suspected him to be Lansky's sole "heir".

During the 1970s, Lansky faced tax evasion charges and fled to Israel, where he lived for two years before being apprehended and returned to the United States. The government's best shot was a loan shark named Vincent Teresa, an informant with little or no credibilty. The jury was unreceptive and Lansky was acquitted in 1974. Lansky's last years were spent quietly at his home in Miami Beach. On January 15, 1983, Meyer Lansky succumbed to lung cancer. He was 81 years-old and left behind a wife and three children. At the time, the FBI believed he left behind over three hundred million dollars in hidden bank accounts, but the money never turned up. On paper, Lansky was worth almost nothing.

[edit] Popular culture
The character Hyman Roth, portrayed by Lee Strasberg, in the film The Godfather Part II (1974) is based on Lansky. In fact, shortly after the premier in 1974, Lansky phoned Strasberg and congratulated him on a good performance, but added "You could've made me more sympathetic".
The 1981 NBC mini series, The Gangster Chronicles, the character of Michael Lasker, played by Brian Benben was based on Lansky. The reason for the name "Michael Lasker" was due to Lansky's still living at the time.
The film Bugsy (1991), a biography of Bugsy Siegel, included him as a major character, played by Ben Kingsley.
In the 1991 film Mobsters, he is played by the actor Patrick Dempsey.
In the 1996 novel The Plan, by Stephen J. Cannell, Lansky and fellow mobster Joseph Alo are involved in putting an anti-RICO presidential candidate into office.
A 1999 made-for-TV movie called Lansky_(film) was released starring Richard Dreyfuss as Lansky, Eric Roberts as Bugsy Siegel, and Anthony LaPaglia as Lucky Luciano.
Meyer Lansky is portrayed by Dustin Hoffman in the 2005 film The Lost City.
Lansky was rumored to have photographic proof that J. Edgar Hoover was a homosexual; conspiracy theorists believed this was the reason he wasn't aggressive in pursuing organized crime. There is no known direct evidence that Hoover was in fact gay, but there is strong circumstantial evidence suggesting so.
Manny Wiesbord, the mob chieftan played by Joseph Wiseman on Crime Story, was based on Lansky.
David 'Noodles' Aaronson, the gangster played by Robert De Niro in Sergio Leone's opus Once Upon A Time In America was based on Meyer Lansky.

Charles "Lucky" Luciano (born Salvatore Lucania) (November 24, 1897 – January 26, 1962) was a Sicilian-American mobster. Luciano is considered the father of modern organized crime and the mastermind of the massive postwar expansion of the international heroin trade.

[edit] Early life
Charles Luciano was born on November 24, 1897 in Lercara Friddi, Sicily, a town primarily known for its sulfur mines. The promise of a new and better life led his family to immigrate to America in 1907 and he arrived in New York late that year. At 10 years he was arrested for the first time on a count of shoplifting. During this same year he met his long time friend Meyer Lansky. At 18 he was sentenced to 6 months at a reformatory for selling heroin and morphine. Upon his release he resumed his dealings and led a dangerous gang of the Five Points.

By 1920 Luciano had met many of the mafia heavy weights including Bugsy Siegel, Vito Genovese, and Frank Costello.

Soon Luciano hooked up with Joe Masseria. But the partnership was doomed from the start as Luciano’s and Masseria’s methods of business differed greatly. One day Luciano was forced into a limo at gun point by three men, beaten and stabbed, and dumped on the beaches of New York Bay. Luciano survived the ordeal, but was forever marked with the now infamous scar and droopy eye. This incident is sometimes confused with the origin of his nickname "Lucky". However "Lucky" actually came from his ability to pick winning horses at the races.[citation needed] After the incident Luciano quickly found out through Lansky that it was Masseria that had ordered the abduction. He secretly plotted with Masseria's enemy Sal Maranzano to betray Masseria. This plot would be the beginning of the Castellammarese War.

[edit] Rise to power
From 192 to 1931 the war raged on resulting in many mobsters deaths until Masseria was killed in a Coney Island restaurant by Bugsy, and three of Luciano's men. It is rumored that Luciano had lunch with Masseria, and stepped into the wash room just as the gun men stormed the restaurant. Maranzano then made Luciano his number two, and set up the Five New York Families under him. But Maranzano recognized Luciano for what he was: an ambitious gangster that would not stop till he reached the top, and decided that in order for Maranzano to maintain power, he would have to eliminate him, as well as the infamous Al Capone of Chicago.

Luciano learned of a plot, and Lansky answered by ordering the killing of Maranzano. Luciano was now the model mobster, he had business in Chicago, Detroit, New Jersey, and above all: New York. His long time friend Meyer Lansky served as his right hand man and Luciano always followed Lansky’s advice. During the years of Luciano's rule, he made the pact: "we only kill each other". This was exemplified when Dutch Schultz tried to killew York attorney Thomas Dewey in direct violation with pact, he was soon after executed. Luciano oversaw and ordered the killings of an estimated 500 men, although a significant portion of those he was never directly connected to or involved in.

In the mid 1930s Luciano began organizing all of the New York brothels. The idea was to set a flat rate and overwork the women to squeeze as much money out of the business as possible. The prostitutes worked six days a week for long hours and slowly they began to crack. Finally, the police organized a raid of 80 separate brothels and over 100 prostitutes were brought in. They all spoke of the terrible rule of Luciano's gang. In 1936, after a short trial, Luciano was sentenced to thirty to fifty years for his involvement in the brothels.

[edit] World War II, freedom, and deportation
During WWII the U.S. government is reported to have covertly made a deal with Luciano, who was by then imprisoned. U.S. military intelligence was aware Luciano had maintained good connections in the Sicilian and Italian Mafia, which had been severely persecuted under Mussolini in Italy. Luciano was an American devoted to Sicily, the Mafia, and the USA alike. His help was sought in providing Mafia assistance to counter possible Axis infiltration on U.S. waterfronts, during Operation Underworld, and his connections in Italy and Sicily were tapped to furnish intelligence and ensure an easy passage for U.S. forces as they moved up through the Italian peninsula. Both during and after the war, the U.S. military and intelligence agencies reputedly also used Luciano's Mafia connections to root out Communist influence in resistance groups and local governments.

In return for his cooperation, it is claimed that Luciano was permitted to run his crime empire unhindered from his jail cell, and that during the 1940s, he used to meet US military men during train trips throughout Italy, and he enjoyed being recognized by his countrymen, several times taking photos and even signing autographs for them.

In 1946, as part of the payoff for his cooperation, he was paroled on the condition that he leave the United States and return to Italy. He accepted the deal, although he had maintained during his trial that he was a native of New York City and was therefore not subject to deportation, but was deeply hurt about having to leave the USA, a country he had considered his own ever since his arrival at age ten. Later that year, he flew to Cuba for the Havana Conference, where he retook control of the American syndicate. At the meeting, Luciano ordered the execution of Siegel, who had cost the Mafia millions by opening money-losing casinos in Las Vegas. When the US government learned of Luciano's presence in the Caribbean he was forced to fly back to Italy.

[edit] Involvement in U.S. heroin trade
According to drug trade expert Dr Alfred W. McCoy, during the 1950s Luciano forged a crucial alliance with the Corsican Mafia, who were reputed to be even tougher and more dangerous than the Sicilians -- their drug operation was the so-called "French Connection", which was depicted in the famous film starring Gene Hackman.

This new super-syndicate oversaw a massive increase in the production, refining and distribution of heroin, which had been all but eliminated as an addiction problem during World War II because of wartime restrictions. Using opium sourced mainly from Turkey, heroin was refined and distributed via an elaborate network based in the Corsican Mafia stronghold of Marseilles in France.

Heroin soon began flooding into America and Europe, making notable inroads into vulnerable areas such as the American jazz scene, thanks to the Mafia's increasing takeover of music venues and other facets of the entertainment industry. The influence of heroin on American institutions continued well beyond Luciano's death.

[edit] Later years
Later in life Luciano came into conflict with Lansky over the amount of money he was receiving from Mafia operations in the early 1960s, but his failing health prevented him from putting up a fight on the matter. On January 26, 1962, Luciano died of a heart attack at the age of 64 at Naples International Airport. He was buried in St. John's Cemetery in the borough of Queens in New York City, after a federal court ruled his burial on United States soil could not be blocked on the grounds that a corpse is not a citizen of any country and is therefore not subject to immigration control or deportation laws.

On the day of his fatal heart attack, Luciano had plans to sell the rights of his life's story to a movie maker [citation needed]. The Mob disliked the idea and had tried unsuccessfully to change his mind. It has been hypothesized that Luciano's heart attack was a result of poisoning by the Mafia [citation needed].

[edit] Trivia
More than likely the character Michael Corleone incorporates a number of Luciano type traits.
In the film, "The Cotton Club", Luciano is portrayed by Joe Dallesandro.
The 1989 book Billy Bathgate, a retelling of Dutch Schultz's last days from the point of view of a young boy he befriends, features Luciano as a minor character whom the narrator is too afraid to identify by name. He was played by Stanley Tucci in the film adaptation.
The 1991 film Mobsters is about the rise of Luciano, Lansky, Frank Costello and Bugsy Siegel. It takes several liberties with historical accuracy. It stars Christian Slater as Luciano, who narrates the film.
The 1991 film Bugsy, the role of Lucky Luciano was played by Bill Graham.
The 1997 film Hoodlum, about the gang war in Harlem between Dutch Schultz and Ellsworth "Bumpy" Johnson, co-starring Andy Garcia as Luciano. Arguably it is the most accurate physical portrayal of him, showing Luciano with all of his scars and malformities.
The 2002 book 54, written by Wu Ming, has Lucky Luciano as one of its characters - as well as Marshall Tito

Alphonse Gabriel Capone (January 17, 1899 – January 25, 1947), popularly known as Al "Scarface" Capone, was an American gangster who led a crime syndicate dedicated to the illegal traffic of alcoholic beverages during the time of their prohibition in the 1920s and 1930s. Born in New York City to Neapolitan emigrants Gabriele and Teresina Capone, he began his career in Brooklyn before moving to Chicago and becoming the boss of the criminal organization known as the Chicago Outfit (Although his business card reportedly described him as a used furniture dealer.[1]). By the end of the 1920's, he had gained the attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigation following his being placed on the Chicago Crime Commission's "public enemies" list. Although never successfully convicted of racketeering charges, Capone's criminal career ended in 1931 when he was indicted and convicted by the federal government for income tax evasion.

Birth, family and early life
Capone was born to Gabriele Capone (December 12, 1864 – November 14, 1920) and his wife Teresina Capone (December 28, 1867 – November 29, 1952) in Brooklyn, New York, at the turn of the 20th century. Gabriele was a barber from Castellammare di Stabia, a village about 15 miles south of Naples, Italy. Teresina was a seamstress and the daughter of Angelo Raiola from Angri, a town in the province of Salerno. The Capones had immigrated to the United States in 1894, and settled in the Navy Yard section of Downtown Brooklyn. At the age of 14, the Capone family moved from the Navy Yard section of Brooklyn to 21 Garfield Street, in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. This new home had a huge impact on Al, as this is where he met his future wife Mae Josephine Coughlin, whom he would marry a few years later at St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Roman Catholic Church, and a gangster Johnny Torrio. Gabriele and Teresina had seven sons and two daughters:

Vincenzo Capone (1892 – October 1, 1952).
Raffaele Capone (1894 – November 22, 1974).
Salvatore Capone (January 1895 – April 1, 1924). Called "Frank". Killed by police after firing on officers.
Alphonse Gabriel Capone (January 17, 1899 – January 25, 1947).
Erminio Capone (1901 – ?). Called “John” or affectionately “Mimi”. He served prison terms for minor offenses such as vagrancy and illegal possession of alcohol. He changed his last name to “Martin” and reportedly was still alive in 1994.[citation needed]
Umberto Capone (1906 – June 1980). Called “Albert”. He was an employee of the newspaper Cicero Tribune under the ownership of his brother Al. He changed his last name to “Raiola” in 1942.
Matthew Capone (1908 – January 31, 1967). A Tavern owner.
Rose Capone (Born and died in 1910).
Mafalda Capone (January 28, 1912 – March 25, 1988).

Early criminal record
Capone's life of crime began early. As a teenager, he joined two gangs, the Brooklyn Rippers and the Forty Thieves Juniors, and engaged in petty crime.

Capone quit school in the sixth grade at the age of 14, after he was expelled for punching a teacher at Public School 133 after she struck him. He then worked at odd jobs around Brooklyn, including in a candy store and a bowling alley. After his initial stint with small-time gangs, Capone joined the notorious Five Points Gang, headed by Frankie Yale. It was at this time he began working as a bartender and a bouncer at Yale's establishment, the seedy Harvard Inn. It was there that Capone was slashed twice in the face during a fight with a thug, Frank Gallucio, after Capone had mentioned: "You have a nice ass, and I mean that as a compliment". Once his face had been stitched up Capone went looking for Gallucio, who appealed to Lucky Luciano to mediate the dispute. Luciano and Yale decided that Gallucio's attack was justified and forbade Capone to exact revenge for the wound that would earn him the lifelong nickname "Scarface". In later years Capone employed Gallucio as a bodyguard when visiting New York.

On December 30, 1918, Capone married Mae Josephine Coughlin, an Irish woman who shortly before their marriage had given birth to his son, Albert Francis ("Sonny") Capone. The couple lived in Brooklyn before moving to Amityville, Long Island, to be close to “Rum row”.

Capone was still working for Frankie Yale and is thought to have committed at least two murders before being sent to Chicago in 1919, mainly to avoid the retribution of Bill Lovett, a psychotic lieutenant in the White Hand Gang, who was busy searching for the Italian kid with scars who had hospitalised one of his subordinates. Capone was familiar with Chicago, having been sent there previously by Yale in order to help crime boss Big Jim Colosimo dispose of a troublesome group of Black Hand extortionists. Capone went to work for Colosimo's empire under Giovanni "Johnny" Torrio, another Brooklyn boy. The move primed one of the most notorious crime careers in modern American history.

Capone moves to Chicago
Torrio immediately recognized Capone's talents and soon Capone had been elevated to running the Four Deuces bar and had responsibility for much of the alcohol and prostitution rackets in the city of Chicago. With prohibition now in full effect, there was a fortune to be made in bootlegging. Colosimo's reluctance to move into this area of crime led to his murder on May 11, 1920 in the foyer of his own nightclub. Frankie Yale was later arrested for the murder but the case collapsed through lack of evidence. Torrio was now in charge and promoted Capone to be his second in command.

The Capone family moved to Chicago for good, buying a small, unassuming house at 7244 South Prairie Avenue in Cicero, Illinois, a Chicago suburb, which would serve as Al Capone's first headquarters.

Activity in Cicero, Illinois
After the 1923 election of reform mayor William Emmett Dever in Chicago, Chicago's city government began to put pressure on the gangster elements inside the city limits. To put its headquarters outside of city jurisdiction and create a safe zone for its operations, the Capone organization muscled its way into Cicero, Illinois. This led to one of Capone's greatest triumphs, the takeover of Cicero's town government in 1924. The 1924 town council elections in Cicero became known as one of the most crooked elections in the Chicago area's long history with voters threatened at the polling station by thugs. His mayoral candidate won by a huge majority, but only weeks later said that he would run Capone out of town. Capone met with his puppet-mayor and personally knocked him down the town hall steps, a powerful assertion of gangster power, and a huge victory for the Torrio-Capone alliance.

The event was marred, however, by the death of Capone's brother Frank at the hands of the police. It broke Al's heart. Unshaven (a gangster form of mourning), Capone cried openly at the funeral and ordered the closure of all the speakeasies in Cicero for a day as a mark of respect.

Capone's wealth and power grows in Chicago

The Lexington Hotel, Chicago. Capone's headquarters. Known as Capone's castle. Photographed in the 1990s, it is now demolishedSeverely injured in a 1925 assassination attempt, the shaken Torrio turned over his business to Capone and returned to Italy. Capone was notorious during the Prohibition era for his control of large portions of the Chicago underworld and his bitter rivalries with North Side gangsters such as Dion O’Banion, Bugs Moran and O'Banion lieutenant Hymie Weiss. Although the Capone organization was making a great deal of money from illegal prostitution and alcohol (some estimates were that between 1925 and 1930 it was grossing $100 million a year), Capone was virtually immune from prosecution due to witness intimidation and the bribing of city officials, such as Chicago mayor William "Big Bill" Hale Thompson.

Capone was reputed to have had several other retreats and hideouts including Brookfield, Wisconsin; Saint Paul, Minnesota; Olean, New York; French Lick, Indiana; Dubuque, Iowa; Hot Springs, Arkansas; Johnson City, Tennessee; and Lansing, Michigan.

In 1928, Capone bought a retreat on Palm Island, Florida. It was shortly after this purchase that he orchestrated the most notorious gangland killing of the century, the 1929 St. Valentine's Day Massacre. Although details of the killing of the 7 victims are still in dispute and no one was ever indicted for the crime, their deaths are generally linked to Capone and his henchmen, especially Jack "Machine Gun" McGurn, who is thought to have led the operation. By staging the massacre, Capone was trying to dispose of his arch-rival Bugs Moran, who controlled gang operations on the North Side of Chicago. Moran was late for the meeting and escaped an otherwise certain death.

Time Magazine cover featuring CaponeThroughout the 1920s there were a number of attempts to assassinate Capone. He was shot in a restaurant, and had his car riddled with bullets more than once. However, most of the would-be assassins were incompetent, and Capone was never seriously wounded. Members of the gang that had wounded Torrio shot into the headquarters of Capone's gang, which was disguised as a doctor's office and an antique dealer's shop. Nobody was hurt in the raid (Capone's bodyguard threw him to the ground at the first sound of gunfire) although the headquarters was riddled with bullet holes.

Capone often tried to whitewash his image and be seen as a community leader. For example, he started a program, which was continued for decades after his death, to fight rickets by providing a daily milk ration to Chicago school children. Such efforts, however, did not change his reputation for violence and murder within the city.

Federal income taxes and downfall

Al Capone's privileged cell in Eastern State Penitentiary, where he spent ten months in 1929-1930 for possession of a concealed weapon [1]Although Capone always did his business through front men and had no accounting records in his own name (even his mansion was in his wife's name), Al Alcini started linking him to his earnings. The federal income tax laws allowed the federal government to pursue Capone on tax evasion, their best chance of finally convicting him.

Part of the reason Capone was taken to task in this way was his status as a celebrity. On the advice of his publicist, he did not hide from the media by the mid 1920s and began to make public appearances. When Charles Lindbergh performed his famous transatlantic flight in 1927, Capone was among the first to push forward and shake his hand upon his arrival in Chicago. He gained a great deal of admiration from many of the poor in Chicago for his flagrant disregard of the prohibition law that they all despised. He was viewed for a time as a lovable outlaw, partially due to his extravagant generosity to strangers and often lending a hand to struggling Italian-Americans. His night club, the Cotton Club, became a hot-spot for hot new acts such as Charlie Parker and Bing Crosby. He was often cheered in the street, and it was only the brutal murders of the St. Valentine's Day massacre that made people view him, once again, as a killer and socially unacceptable.[citation needed] This was despite Capone's opening of soup kitchens in Chicago's poorest suburbs.

Capone headed a list of “public enemies” corrupting the city compiled by chairman of the Chicago Crime Commission, Frank J. Loesch, in April 1930. The list was published by newspapers nationwide, and Capone became known as “Public Enemy No. 1”.

Pursuing Capone were Treasury agent Eliot Ness and his hand-picked team of incorruptible U.S. Prohibition agents, "The Untouchables", and internal revenue agent Frank Wilson of the Treasury Department's Bureau of Internal Revenue[2]. During a routine warehouse raid they discovered in a desk drawer what was clearly a crudely coded set of accounts. Ness then concentrated on pursuing Capone for his failure to pay tax on this substantial illegal income. This story has become a legend and the subject of books and films.

Capone was tried in a federal court in 1931. The Alcinis tried to help Capone, but he pleaded guilty to the charges on advice from his legal counsel hoping for a plea bargain. But after the judge refused his lawyer's offers, and the jury was replaced on the day of the trial to frustrate Capone's associates' efforts to bribe or intimidate the original jury, Al Capone was found guilty on five of twenty-two counts of tax evasion for the years 1925, 1926, and 1927 and willful failure to file tax returns for 1928 and 1929. Capone's legal team offered to pay all outstanding tax and interest and told their client to expect a hefty fine. Capone turned crimson with rage as the judge sentenced him to eleven years in a federal prison and one year in the county jail, as well as an earlier six-month contempt of court sentence.[3] He also had to pay substantial fines and costs.

Prison time
In May 1932, Capone was sent to Atlanta, a tough federal prison, but was able to take control and obtain special privileges. He was then transferred to Alcatraz, where tight security and an intractable Warden ensured that he had no contact with the outside world. Capone entered Alcatraz with his usual confidence, but his isolation from his associates, and the repeal of Prohibition, meant his empire was beginning to wither. He attempted to earn time off for good behavior, by being an ideal prisoner and refusing to participate in prisoner rebellions. When he attempted to bribe guards he was sent to the “hole” (solitary confinement).

During his early months at Alcatraz, Capone made an enemy by showing his disregard for the social order of the prison when he cut in line while prisoners were waiting for a haircut.[citation needed] James Lucas, a Texas bank robber serving 30 years, reportedly confronted the former syndicate leader and told him to get back at the end of the line. When Capone asked if he knew who he was, Lucas reportedly grabbed a pair of the barber's scissors and, holding them to Capone's neck, answered "Yeah, I know who you are, greaseball. And if you don't get back to the end of that fucking line, I'm gonna' know who you were."[citation needed]

Capone earned the contempt of many of the inmates in Alcatraz when he refused to take part in a prisoners' strike after a sick inmate was accused of malingering, denied medical treatment and died. Continuing his work in the prison laundry, he was continually harassed by other prisoners and often called a "scab" or "rat". He was eventually allowed to stay in his cell until the strike was resolved.

Shortly after returning to work, an unidentified inmate threw a heavy lead sash weight at his head, but he suffered only a deep cut on the arm after being pushed out of the way by convicted bank robber Roy Gardner.

Reassigned to mopping up the prison bathhouse, he was nicknamed the "wop with the mop" by inmates.[citation needed] He was later stabbed in the back by Lucas, who was sentenced to solitary confinement in "the Hole". Capone was hospitalized for a week. He was later harassed further and unsuccessful attempts on his life were made throughout his prison sentence, including spiking his coffee with lye and attacking him as he was walking towards the dentist's office.[citation needed] He remained under protection from several inmates (possibly due to payoffs by the Chicago Outfit).

Capone's mental state began to deteriorate. Amongst other things, he would repeatedly make his bed and then undo it for hours.[citation needed] At times, Capone refused to leave his cell at all, crouching in a corner and talking to himself in Italian or, according to some, complete gibberish.[citation needed] He began telling people that he was being haunted by the ghost of James Clark, a victim in the St. Valentine's Day Massacre.[citation needed] Paranormal investigators were even sent in to observe him and his surroundings, though they ultimately decided that Capone was simply mentally unwell.[citation needed]

He completed his term in Alcatraz on 6 January 1939, and was transferred to Federal Correctional Institution Terminal Island in California, to serve his one-year misdemeanor sentence. He was released on 16 November 1939, spent a short time in hospital, then returned to his home in Palm Island, Florida.

Physical decline, and death
Capone's control and interests within organized crime had decreased rapidly on his imprisonment, and he was no longer able to run the Outfit on his release. He lost weight, and his physical and mental health declined, most noticeably with the onset of dementia probably caused by an infection of syphilis, untreated since it was contracted in his youth.[citation needed]

On 21 January 1947, Capone had an apoplectic stroke. He regained consciousness and started to improve, but contracted pneumonia on January 24, and died the next day from cardiac arrest (possibly associated with the 3rd stage complications of syphilis).[citation needed]

Alphonse Capone was originally buried in Mount Olivet Cemetery, in Chicago's far South Side between the graves of his father, Gabriele, and brother, Frank. However, in March 1950, the remains of all three family members were moved to Mount Carmel Cemetery in Hillside, Illinois, west of Chicago.

Popular culture
Al Capone also had two films about his life called Scarface. But in these movies his name was changed to Antonio 'Tony' Camonte, played by Paul Muni (in 1932).
One of the most notorious American gangsters of the 20th century, Capone has been the subject of numerous articles, books, and films. He has been portrayed on screen by Nicholas Kokenes, Wallace Beery, Paul Muni, Barry Sullivan, Rod Steiger, Neville Brand, Jason Robards, Ben Gazzara, Robert De Niro, William Devane, Titus Welliver,Al Pacino and William Forsythe.
The Paper Lace song entitled "The Night Chicago Died" imagines Capone and his army of criminals waging war against the Chicago Police force.
Dick Tracy creator Chester Gould created the villainous crime-boss Alphonse "Big Boy" Caprice in 1931 as a caricature of Capone.
Capone and his era were highlighted in the 1959 television film The Untouchables and its feature film and television series remakes, which have created the myth of the personal war between the crime lord and Eliot Ness.
Capone was an off-screen character (in a deleted scene that was added to the DVD release) in the 2002 film Road to Perdition, where he was portrayed by Anthony LaPaglia.
He was a character in the comic book Tintin in America, the only real person to appear as a character in the The Adventures of Tintin series.
He was a Possessor in Peter F. Hamilton's The Night's Dawn Trilogy science fiction novels, managing to form a powerful "Organization" which overran several planets during the 2611 Possession Crisis.
Capone is mentioned in the famous gangster novel "The Godfather", where he plays a part in Vito Corleone's past. In the Godfather, he is portrayed as a ruthless man, but one without tact.
In several stories in the alternative history anthology Back in the USSA by Kim Newman and Eugene Byrne, Capone is imagined as the brutal dictator of a United States of America which experienced a communist revolution in 1917 instead of Russia, and is presented as an obvious analog to Joseph Stalin.
In The Radio Adventures of Dr. Floyd, Capone was toyed with in a very humorous episode.
Capone is the subject of the Prince Buster song Al Capone and is the namesake of Rancid's Young Al Capone. Capone also appeared on the album art for Sufjan Stevens's 2005 album Illinois.
He is a non-playable character in the video game Shadow Hearts: From The New World.
An alleged vault of Capone's was opened by Geraldo Rivera on live television in 1986 on The Mystery of Al Capone's Vault. It turned out to be empty, except for an old whiskey bottle. This was parodied on the Simpsons, when Homer was trying to write a song and made the lyrics "There was nothing in Al Capone's vault/But it wasn't Geraldo's fault".
Tunnels found under the city of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan are said to have been another hideout of Capone's[2]. The anfractuous tunnels are a very popular tourist attraction, due in part to the alleged link to Capone.
Capone's persona and character have been used in fiction as a model for crime-lords and criminal masterminds ever since his death. His accent, mannerisms, facial construction, sometimes his physical stature, type of dress, and often even parodies of his name are found in various cartoon series villains as well as some movies. These characters are often shown as wily and crafty, rather than contemptible, criminal characters.
Al Capone is a brand of cigars in Europe.
In Rocky II Burt Young's character Paulie was likened to Capone by World Champion Apollo Creed.
The film Scarface is a remake of the original 1932 film about Al Capone, showing how the downfall of both Tony Montana and Al Capone was due to tax evasion.
