Time to Name Names of Chicago’s Gang Leaders

Chicago NOw 26 February 2016 No Comment

Tony Accardo, Sam Giancanna, Joey the Clown Lombardo, Phil Alderisio, John DiFronzo, Marshall Caifano, Anthony Spilotro, Salvatore DeLaurentis, Gus Alex, Lenny Patrick, Angelo LaPietra.

The above names, their pictures and video promulgated the news media during the 1960’s through the 1990’s. The people of Chicago knew who ran crime in their city. The public knew who the associates of organized crime were, the businessmen and politicians who were friends and enablers of the Outfit.

No one can name the street leaders of the Gangster Disciples, Latin Kings, Vice Lords, Netas, Black Gangsters, or any of the numerous gangs operating in Chicago. No one would recognize the leadership if they were walking down the street. The same holds true for the operators of the drug cartels.

If you try to publicly name a politician, clergyman, or business person associated with these criminal enterprises you are shamed and bullied. It is just not done.
