    One of the finest interviews I've seen on La Cosa Nostra. Thank you, Patrick, for your questions, great listening and for really letting Sammy answer fully, really telling his stories and finishing all of us his thoughts without interrupting. And thank you so much, Sammy - incredible stories, insights and lessons - especially about our legal and political system, horrendous double standards and secret but pervasive systematic greed. Absolutely riveting to watch.

    Patrick, you are a smart man. But, why didn't you ask Sammy about Alan kaiser???? He is the innocent teenager killed by sammy. Sammy never mentions alan. If the mob would of followed their own code, and killed sammy, years later he wouldn't of testified in court and decimating the gambino family

    The history of the mafia is so interesting. Whether it be the traits of a person, the work they put in, how someone(s) got caught up or got away. Just know that a piece of truth will always be missing no matter who is speaking. As for myself all i needed to hear was being both thug and racketeer was a rarity, the mindset possessed from such roles simultaneously is outstanding.

      So I get what your sayin but at the same time gotti did the exact same thing to sammy. Gotti was literally openly having conversations bout cosa nostra on those tapes going out in public during the day buying 3000 dollar suits and hand painted ties aaying im john gotti the biggest gangster ever. And then wants sammy to take the rap for Gotti's problems. Get Gotti's dick outta your mouth look around you schmuck. The boss wasn't loyal to one of his own.

This isn't the place to act GANGSTER where we from that's called halfstepping and its usually done by a wanna be but in this case your just a keyboard warrior. This woman gets on here n recommends he speaks to our youth n you accuse her of cooperating?
