111,118.  Sam Giancana, leader of the Chicago Mafia.  Clever.  Most powerful mobster in America.  Arrested more than 70 times for assault, larceny, bombing and murder, he personally tortured some of his victims.  Thought responsible for 200 killings.  (Gangs US: Chicago & Mafia US: Chicago & Murder Cases & Chicago)  Mobsters s1e2: Sam Giancana, Bio 2007  

 

111,119.  Sam Giancana was boss of the Chicago Mafia.  And without doubt the most powerful gangster in America.  (Gangs US: Chicago & Mafia US: Chicago & Murder Cases & Chicago)  ibid.  

 

111,120.  It’s the ultimate story of organised crime in America.  (Gangs US: Chicago & Mafia US: Chicago & Murder Cases & Chicago)  ibid.

 

111,121.  He became a gun for hire, a freelance enforcer who killed to order.  (Gangs US: Chicago & Mafia US: Chicago & Murder Cases & Chicago)  ibid.

111,179.  For the big fellow, killing was just part of his business plan, a plan to become the CEO of organised crime in Chicago.  But as king of the bootleggers during Prohibition, Scarface Al became more of a celebrity than any corporate executive.  He became the most famous gangsta in the world.  (Gangs US: Chicago & Mafia US: Chicago & Murder Cases & Chicago)  Mobsters s1e10: Al Capone, Bio 2007

17,642.  May 15th 1962: a police officer on Chicago’s south side walks up to an abandoned car on 55th Street.  Neighbours had complained about an intense stench coming from the car’s boot.  The bodies were covered with maggots ... The victims were local thugs ... The Outfit considered the neighbourhood off limits ... Violating a mob rule meant a visit from 24-year-old Tony Spilotro ... The M & M murders.  In the following months the story circulated around Chicago.  One thing was clear – Tony Spilatro could get information from anyone and could use any means necessary.  (Gangs US: Chicago & Murder Cases: Spilotro & Chicago & Mafia US: Chicago)  Mobsters s1e26: Tony Spilotro

17,645.  The Mobsters pocketed the rest.  The desert city had become a cash cow for the outfit.  With so much money flowing from Las Vegas casinos the Mob needed muscle to protect its investment.  Naturally, the bosses turned to a man who had killed and tortured on behalf of the Mob for years – Tony Spilatro.  And the young mobster saw it as a chance to prove himself.  (Gangs US: Chicago & Murder Cases: Spilotro & Chicago & Mafia US: Chicago)  ibid.

 

17,646.  The judge found the mobster not-guilty.  But his victory was short-lived.  That same month was indicted once again.  (Gangs US: Chicago & Murder Cases: Spilotro & Chicago & Mafia US: Chicago)  ibid.

17,592.  Nitti figured safety was in numbers so he befriended three Italian brothers who lived around the corner ... And their little brother Alphonse.  (Gangs US: Chicago & Mafia US: Chicago & Chicago)  ibid.
