This should surprise no one. It might be newsworthy if (when) Trump is publicly connected to the guy. Meh. He was connected to Genovese (known) and probably every other crime family.

The timing of this execution may be the only thing that proves out to be really interesting and relevant.

Things like this don’t happen without planning for maximum benefit. I may be a local thing... maybe. We shall see.

I reiterate- Trump has known and dealt with the mob for decades. They like to send signals. Might be interesting.

the old mobsters have ruined it for the young mobsters, it's no wonder they have no respect for their selfish ways and large gas guzzling mobster cars

Well one guy is, the other guy not so much......


Fast fact about Todt hill section of Staten Island: Big Paul Castellano's house was literally 10 houses away from where Franky got hit. That has to be a "crime free" neighborhood until a dust up like this one.

I've seen people on the internet wondering if this is somehow connected to the recent $70M+ coke bust at the Port of Newark. Would be interesting if it somehow was.

The mob is definitely alive and well, anyone in the area knows it. There are still busts where like 50+ people are arrested in NY and NJ, there was one rather recently.

The other interesting angle was the Bonnano pair that got acquitted just hours before the shooting. Did they get off and want to settle a score?

Suspect Busted!


Good work NYPD!

Looking less like hit, and more like a personal beef. That would explain quite a lot of things.


In which case the suspect in custody is better off (maybe) where is he is; and the others still on the lamb had better seek extreme protection.


Remember the sad fate of Jackie Aprile Jr.

You don't go around messing with a Don and live long to tell about your exploits. Well not without major protection anyway.
