Ignorant fools and disingenuous tools long have insisted that the degenerate Mafia nevertheless maintains some honorable principles including respect for women and children. Well, if raping women is the same as honoring them then the wise guys are swell fellas! Of course, not every mobster is a rapist, but it’s remarkable how many of them have been charged with sexual violence against the fairer sex. For example, Friends of Ours recently acquired an FBI report from February 1965 which identified the top loansharks in New York and included their rap sheets, and of the fifty-six listed mobsters the following seven had arrest records on rape charges: Angelo Pero, Sabato Muro, Carmine Lombardozzi, Salvatore Granello, John Franzese, Michael Clemente and Dominick Castore. Heck, Granello's arrest involved a 14-year-old girl with whom he sired a bastard son. The rape charges against John "Sonny" Franzese are particularly ironic because his son Colombo-capo-turned-Christian-evangelist Michael Franzese once expressed shock on CNN about the 2010 indictment charging Gambino mobsters with the prostitution racket including pimping out underage girls because the Mafia views women and children as sacred. Ha!
