Killing the Mob - Bill O'Reilly

[ Guests cannot view attachments ]

This book just arrived today and can't wait to start reading cause there's so much I want to know about 'The Mob' and what they've evolved into, learned a lot from simply listening to 'Bill' while doing radio interviews, like how there's an agreement between the Italian mob and the South American Cartel that the Cartel shall not set up operations in the U.S., I find that very interesting.

The Cartel can 'franchise' their operations in the U.S., but they themselves cannot operate in the U.S....like some powerful criminal on criminal contract or something.

Anyways, that and more I'm hoping this book will educate me on...much more to follow as I start reading this book and sharing some of what I learn from it.

People who love to say 'black commit more crimes', must have deleted the 1930's from history

In chapter 1 of 'Killing the mob' it's amazing how history repeats itself, most alive today think of the 1930's as being ancient horse and buggy days, and I think we all fail to realize how sophisticated the 1930's were, cars, electricity, night clubs, fancy clothing, airplanes, radios and more, the 1930's were not the 'stone age' as many of us seem to think.

And from reading chapter 2 of this book, it was also a very violent era do to bank foreclosures, the depression and more which gave rise to many criminal organizations.

And back then, as in today, Immigration was a source of tension as well...just funny how history repeats itself.

To be continued

Killing the Mob - Bill O'Reilly

I"m like up to chapter 3 or 4 now, post Al Capone era, and now approaching WW 2 era of mobsters or in book 'Mafia'

And again, must say even I'm amazed at how sophisticated crime was back then as in 'brothels', and how the mob in Chicago, New York, and anywhere else had 'sex slaves' as products, even back then, back when America was suppose to be so 'Holy'...wow


I mean I know this stuff wasn't main stream, but it was still occurring, like crime does today, with the nod and wink from some.

Criminals were brutal then, and criminals are still brutal, whether Italian mobsters or crips and bloods, they're all brutal.

But over time, for whatever reason, white criminals, white crime, has been romanticized, and almost seen as 'dutiful', as if done by patriots or something, where as urban black crime spun in a totally different light, why do you think that is?

Anyways, one thing for sure this 'Killing the Mob' book by Bill is pretty darn fun to read....much more to follow.

Chapter 6 of this book, also learning how Mussolini, the Italian Fascist who teamed up with Hitler, did not like the Sicilian mob, both bunted heads, and how Mussolini's crack down on the Italian mob led to many fleeing to the U.S. and then helping the U.S. Government defeat Mussolini....this is all very interesting and probably explains why the Italian mob had so many high connections in the U.S. Government for so many decades afterwards.

I'm learning a lot by reading this book..much more to follow.

It's also interesting to me that J Egdor Hoover wasn't, at least in 1951, interested in persuing the 'Mafia', he dismissed them as a national threat.

I just read, in book, the chapter about 'Bugsy Siegal', the guy who pretty much established the mobs presence in Las Vegas...and to this day they still don't know who killed him, according to this book.

Seems a lot of prominent people were assasinated back in the 50's and 60's, that to this day no one knows who did it.

Same thing with Tupac and Biggie Smalls the rapper.

Law enforcement can be very scary when they conspire against you, cause when they do who do you turn to for help?, especially if a criminal who might be trying to go 'straight'.

Anyways, this book indeed is a interesting read.

Also learning more about the nature of J Egdor Hoover, the former FBI director of long ago

1. The guy may of been 'gay' or same sex orientated, but seemed to only ever be with one male, these two worked together all the time.

The word 'gay' may be two broad here, cause to me 'gay' implies you're attracted to many others of your same sex, but seems Hoover may have just been attracted to one guy in particular whom according to this book, he left a large some of money with when he passed away, and I don't think Hoover ever got married.

And learning how Hoover basically turned a blind eye to the Mafia which led some to believe they possibly had something on here, blackmail type stuff that would of destroyed his career.

So instead Hoover focused his main attention on supposed communist and people like Dr King and Malcom X and other social 'agitatiors' of the day, while turning a blind eye to the Mafia and allowing them to further intrench themselves into American society.
