Default Gambino Crime Family Boss Frank Cali Killed In N.Y.

Damn, I didn't know the Mafia was still active. I guess the FBI was too busy with the Russian investigation of our President.

https://www.npr.org/2019/03/14/70330...-in-n-y-attack

Francesco "Frank" Cali, the reputed leader of the Gambino crime family, was shot to death outside his house in Staten Island on Wednesday night, in a killing that echoes Mafia murders of the 1980s.

The New York Police Department says that at 9:17 p.m. ET, officers received a 911 call reporting an assault in progress in front of Cali's house.

"Upon arrival, officers found a 53-year-old male with multiple gunshot wounds to the torso," the police said in a statement sent to NPR. Cali was taken to Staten Island University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

My first thought also. For sure he got wacked by a group that were not traditional Sicilian mafia types. Perhaps he was killed by someone associated with Mexican drug cartels?

This brings to mind the warning that Bilbo gave to Frodo.......It's a dangerous business Frodo, going out your door.

Very well could be Cartel types. If so the Italians will be hard pressed for sure. Time to call home to Sicily...for help.

President Trump should tell our new Attorney General to assign the Mueller team to the task of cleaning up the outfit. All five families. If the Mueller team suffers some casualties in the process, that would be collateral damage.

Yea. Looks like Cali didnít want the guy dating his niece so the guy killed him. The guy may not have known the connection to the mafia. How long will it take the mafia to take him out is the question.
