The Foundations of Organized Crime (Documentary)

(Scroll Down for video) [Links and much more video is found here, click]

The Irish Mob is the oldest organized crime group in the United States, in existence since the early 19th century. Originating in Irish American street gangs of the 19th century—depicted in Herbert Asbury's 1928 book The Gangs of New York—the Irish Mob has appeared in most major American cities, including Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, Twin Cities, and New Orleans. rish-American street gangs such as the Dead Rabbits and Whyos dominated New York's underworld for well over a century before facing competition from other, primarily recently arrived Italian and Jewish gangs, during the 1880s and 1890s. Although gang leaders such as Paul Kelly of the Five Points Gang would rise to prominence during the early 1900s, gangs such as the Hudson Dusters and the Gopher Gang would remain formidable rivals during the period.

In the early 1900s, with Italian criminal organisations, such as the Morello crime family, encroaching on the waterfront, various Irish gangs united to form the White Hand Gang. Although initially successful in keeping their Italian rivals at bay, unstable leadership and infighting would prove their downfall. The murders of Dinny Meehan, Bill Lovett, and Richard Lonergan led to the gang's disappearance by 1925, and the waterfront was taken over by Italian mobsters Vincent Mangano, Albert Anastasia, and Joe Adonis. The Winter Hill Gang, a loose confederation of Boston-area organised crime figures, was one of the most successful organised crime groups in American history. It controlled the Boston underworld from the early 1960s until the mid-1990s. It derives its name from the Winter Hill neighbourhood of Somerville, Massachusetts, north of Boston, and was founded by first boss James "Buddy" McLean.

While Winter Hill Gang members were alleged to have been involved with most typical organised crime related activities, they are perhaps best known for fixing horse races in the northeastern United States. Twenty-one members and associates, including Howie Winter and his right-hand man and bookkeeper, Salvatore Sperlinga, were indicted by federal prosecutors in 1979. The gang was then taken over by James J. "Whitey" Bulger and hitman Stephen Flemmi. Decades after the disappearance of James J. "Whitey" Bulger, a rise in recruitment and strong family ties prompted the return of the Irish Mob under the supervision of Bob Hogan and the Winter Hill Gang. New faces were recruited from as far south as New York in places like Hell Kitchen; and as far north as Maine. The Westies are an Irish American gang hailing from Hell's Kitchen on the West Side of Manhattan.

The most prominent members have included Mickey Spillane, Eddie McGrath, James Coonan, Mickey Featherstone, and Edward Cummiskey.

In the Irish/Italian Mob War of the 1970s, the Irish mob saw an increased threat from the Italian Mafia as the Genovese crime family sought control over the soon to be built Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Since the convention center was located in Spillane's Hell's Kitchen neighborhood, Spillane refused to allow any involvement by the Italians. Although the Italian gangsters greatly outnumbered the members of the Irish mob, Spillane was successful in keeping control of the convention center and Hell's Kitchen. The Italians, frustrated and embarrassed by their defeat to Spillane, responded by hiring a rogue Irish-American hitman named Joseph "Mad Dog" Sullivan to assassinate Tom Devaney, Eddie "the Butcher" Cummiskey, and Tom "the Greek" Kapatos, three of Spillane's top lieutenants.

Also around this time, a power struggle between Mickey Spillane and James Coonan a younger upstart from Hell's Kitchen emerged. In 1977 Spillane was murdered in a hail of bullets by assassins from the Genovese crime family. This prompted Coonan to form an alliance with Roy DeMeo of the Gambino crime family. The Genoveses decided that the Westies were too violent and well led to go to war with and mediated a truce via the Gambinos.

Coonan was imprisoned in 1986 under the RICO act. Featherstone became an informant after his arrest in the early 1980s.

Karma catches up with Corruptikut's former Governor John G. Rowland

Above picture and below article was originally [found here on New York Times online edition].

NEW HAVEN — Former Gov. John G. Rowland of Connecticut, who nearly a decade ago was forced to resign from office in disgrace, was found guilty in federal court on Friday of engaging in corrupt political acts even after serving prison time for his previous conviction.

The verdict came just one day after closing arguments and represented a second major downfall for the 57-year-old politician, who as a young man had been hailed as a rising star in the Republican Party.

Mr. Rowland was found guilty on seven counts, and faces a maximum sentence of 57 years in prison. He will be sentenced on Dec. 12 by Judge Janet Bond Arterton, who is known for being tough in public corruption cases.

For more than two weeks, jurors heard testimony regarding allegations that Mr. Rowland sought to inject himself illegally into two congressional campaigns in roundabout ways that would have concealed any payments for his work from campaign regulators and voters.

Just before the verdict, the judge asked Mr. Rowland to stand. His wife, Patty, leaned into his shoulder and gripped his left hand.

As the foreman read the guilty verdicts, sobs could be heard from Mr. Rowland’s relatives, and from one juror.

On the courthouse steps a few minutes later, Michael J. Gustafson, the chief of the criminal division of the United States attorney’s office, said, “Clearly, this is a sad day.” But he strongly defended the prosecution, handled by two of his assistant United States attorneys, Christopher M. Mattei and Liam Brennan, and aided by the United States postal inspectors.

Tweaking a remark that had been made by the defense a day earlier, Mr. Gustafson said: “I have heard it suggested that this case was not a criminal case, but simply politics as usual. It was far from that.” He said that transparency was a bedrock of the legal system. “What voters see is what they get,” he said. “The defendant today didn’t want that to happen.”

Six of the seven counts Mr. Rowland was found guilty of involved obstructing justice, conspiracy, falsifying documents relied on by federal regulators and other violations of campaign finance laws in connection with services he provided Lisa Wilson-Foley, a Republican candidate for Congress in 2012, and her husband, Brian Foley, an operator of nursing homes.

The Foleys pleaded guilty this year to related crimes and await sentencing. Mr. Foley served as the government’s star witness in Mr. Rowland’s trial.

Another of the seven counts, an obstruction charge, involved a contract Mr. Rowland drafted and presented to Mark Greenberg, a Republican congressional candidate in the 2010 election. That contract was never executed and Mr. Greenberg testified at Mr. Rowland’s trial that he ripped it up for lack of interest.

Mr. Rowland’s lawyer, Reid H. Weingarten, told reporters outside the courthouse, “We’re extremely disappointed with the verdict.” He said the defense always believed that the prosecution team made far too much of “an all-too-political dust-up” and that it was “very much looking forward to litigating this case” further, he added. Continue reading the main story Continue reading the main story Continue reading the main story

This was the second time a case named “U.S.A. v. John G. Rowland” had landed at the federal courthouse in New Haven. In 2004, Mr. Rowland had to step down from office midway through his third term to halt an impeachment inquiry. Within months, he pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit tax fraud and deprive taxpayers of his honest services, for which he served 10 months in prison.

Moreover, his reputation was in tatters after years of battling allegations that he had accepted renovations at his lakeside cottage, including a hot tub, expensive vacations and other free services from politically connected businessmen and vendors seeking state contracts.

“I acknowledge that my poor judgment has brought us here,” Mr. Rowland said in June 2004 as he announced his resignation on the back lawn of the governor’s mansion with his wife by his side.

For the 13 days he was back in federal court this month, his wife remained a close supporter, clutching his hand tightly as they walked outside at day’s end and faced the cameras.

Legally, Mr. Rowland could have worked for a candidate’s campaign and received payment, had it been properly reported. Mr. Rowland’s problem, as Mr. Mattei told the jury, was that candidates valued his experience but his criminal history made the association too risky.

“Hiring John Rowland on your campaign is like giving your opponent a loaded gun and saying, ‘Shoot me,’ ” Mr. Mattei said, quoting the testimony of one of Ms. Wilson-Foley’s campaign aides.

With much of the government’s case hinging on dozens of incriminating emails and on Brian Foley’s testimony, Mr. Weingarten sought to undercut Mr. Foley’s credibility. He challenged jurors to ask themselves how it was that Mr. Foley gave his wife $500,000, which she slowly added to her campaign funds, along with other donations he arranged from family and associates, without running afoul of campaign laws. He also expressed outrage at how Mr. Foley and his wife were allowed by prosecutors to plead guilty to only one misdemeanor, even though they could have been charged more harshly.

Testifying before the court, Mr. Foley explained how he had a corporate lawyer for Apple Rehab, his nursing home chain, hire Mr. Rowland as cover for his work as a political consultant to Ms. Wilson-Foley.

The defense team maintained that Mr. Rowland’s work for Apple Rehab was legitimate, but the prosecution called in a retired postal inspector, Mark Borofsky, who testified to the wide disparity between the volume of emails and phone calls Mr. Rowland made while doing campaign work and those that related to the nursing home business.

“It’s bittersweet, in the sense that justice has been done,” said Mike Clark, a former agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation who played key roles in both of Mr. Rowland’s convictions.

In 2004, he was charged with investigating public corruption and with the help of colleagues gathered much of the evidence that led to Mr. Rowland’s conviction. In the current case, Mr. Clark, who now teaches criminal justice classes at the University of New Haven, was a Republican contender in the same 2012 congressional race as Ms. Wilson-Foley, and spotted some of the irregularities that helped unravel the scheme.

“The jury certainly accepted what was charged in the indictment,” Mr. Clark said.

The bitter part, he added, was that Connecticut’s corrupt politicians have alienated the young adults he teaches from the political process. “They’ve lost their trust in the democratic process,” he said. “That’s the sad part; that’s the legacy John Rowland is leaving.”

Joining the American "Gee-I-Had" Movement

The US Pentagon has been using is stolen trillion taxpayer dollars to offer police departments stolen property, military equipment to bolster the international banker and corporate organized crime cartel's stealth invasion and armed occupation of America and most of the world.

Jihad is something else altogether. [Wikipedia definition]

- a wife
- a daughter in my life
- pets (a dog and a cat, mine were given away after I was railroaded to prison)
- furniture, kitchen table, my own mattress
- greeting cards, birthday cards, and invitations in the mail (I now get phone calls from family members who still talk to me to tell me that I am NOT invited to family gatherings and reunions, and was told not to call or stop by family member's homes who were close to me before I was imprisoned for resisting being mugged on my own property, my dark driveway)
- credit
- retirement
- gun permit (license to carry concealed weapons, pistols) and ownership of guns
- contractor's license
- belief in the American Dream and American "Justice"
- houses I was current on the mortgage on and a vacation ski condo in Vermont
- European vacations
- a contracting business built over decades and rental properties fixed up from a boarded up condition
- health insurance
- contractor friends and status in my community
- my father and sister talking to me and inviting me to their houses
(My father feels he has to call the state police if he finds out my address, the name and address of a woman I am dating, or where I have a job so police can have someone call to get me fired)
- clean criminal record
- ability not to have my license plate scanned where police just pull me over and harass and threaten the crap out of me, saying they have to contact the Connecticut State Police
- a closet of my own
- nice clothes
- appliances, washer and dryer, snow removal equipment, lawnmower, and a garage fully loaded with tools
- being considered "a catch" by the opposite sex
- ability to travel to Canada and other destinations
- ability to pass a background check to get most jobs, apartments, and even a rental car
- regular dental care
- ability to live or just walk around somewhere police won't tell me I will be arrested if I do not make a bee-line back to Brattleboro, Vermont
- ability to wake up and think about my bright future to wonder if each day will be my last due to being killed or disappeared by police or their operatives
- privacy
- ... too much to list

All of the above was taken away from me, Steven G. Erickson, by the Connecticut State Police, a slimeball judge, and a rigged court system.

I served Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Connecticut elected officials with a letter to see if the above will be the legal precedent for ALL AMERICANS. [Post with Video]

Bill Clinton Murders

Sunday, June 22, 2014

Do elected officials serve international criminals, or us?

Text with below video:

When elected officials don't ask questions, or lift a finger, when they are told that citizens are threatened with being beaten up, murdered, or spending the rest of their life in prison for voting, being married, dating after police spying and abuse causes a divorce, for having children, owning a home, owning guns, being outspoken, or even worse, being self-employed.

Prior to 9/11 police were listening to my phone calls, trolling my internet use, and bugged my house because I was self-employed, outspoken, and advocated paying less property taxes. Police told me I would be murdered if I exposed the installation of video cameras and surveillance microphones strung from telephone poles before 9/11. I refused and went to elected officials and news reporters about the illegal spying and police harassment of citizens using the illegal spying information. Police were out to control voting and eliminate self-employment of non-connected citizens. Police were looking at finding ways to suspend the driver's licenses of targets on their [secret police enemies list]. Police were, and are, lookouts for vandals, drug dealers, thieves breaking into houses, and protection for prostitutes and other criminals.

Stafford Springs, Connecticut, State Senator, Anthony "Tony" Gugliemo knew all about this and doesn't care. [his website]. My fax to the him and the FBI, [Text and links].

I told Enfield, Connecticut, State Senator John A. Kissel, who is also a lawyer what was happening, before, during, after. [his website]. I wrote Kissel from prison telling him that my redressing grievances, and talking to him, may have been a contributing factor for my being railroaded to prison, losing my home, contracting business, daughter, and that police had told me I was kicked out of Connecticut after I got out of prison. Kissel's response was, "Life isn't fair," in a letter he wrote back to me while I was in prison for resisting being beaten up and stabbed by a police informant on my property. [Video of properties and story].

Former Connecticut Congressman Christopher Shays is the only one who asked questions, and to have a hearing on my case, and other cases, in a special hearing in Washington DC. Vermont US Senator Patrick Leahy, and/or his staff don't seem to care about the abuses above. [his website]

[The Connecticut Judiciary Committee and other elected officials have not responded to this fax].

Happy Father's Day from your Police State

Image was [found here]. 

I have the State of Connecticut and police to thank for what might be permanent estrangement from my only daughter. [The story of abuse, domestic spying, and rigged courts].

The Police in the State of Connecticut and rigged courts are responsible, wholly, or in part for:

My no longer being registered to vote, and voting.

My no longer owning a home. I probably never will again.

Me not being a contractor and landlord, changing my occupation. I no longer paint or use power tools.

Me being married. I no longer believe in marriage if police can spy on you, tell you about your conversations, or whether you got laid, or not the night before, and then mock you in the driveway the morning after. I learned you have to have police permission to be married or to date.

My family unity being destroyed.

My losing the sum total of what I built over a lifetime. What I built, police spying meant they were out to destroy and wreck everything. I picture the shadow government and police like the creatures from the movie, "Gremlins".

Police in Connecticut told me I was not allowed to date in Connecticut. I broke no laws. A State Police Officer pulled a woman I was dating from the Avon/Canton area, sexually assaulted her twice, pulling her over twice, threatening her with her losing her home, beauty salons, and being imprisoned if she continued dating me. She broke it off out of fear. That is just one story.

I no longer have a pistol permit or firearms. Police had asked me to help them ruin gun owners, and identify gun owners, so police could target them before police targeted me for being self-employed.

I no longer have pets as mine were given away after I was railroaded to prison for being attacked on my own property. Police refused to protect and serve. They said the only thing they were willing to do for me was to arrest me if they had to show up for anything at all.

I no longer have a retirement.

I no longer buy new vehicles.

I no longer have credit.

I no longer make checks paying out $5000 to $6000 per month. I no longer even make out checks.

My own father thinks it is his job to data mine for the Police State. He would demand to know my girlfriend's name, what she drove, her phone, number, the same for friends, and where I worked. He would angrily hang up and then call the State Police and then give them the information. I told him that police know where I am 24/7 whenever I use a cellphone or am online and if police are doing a legitimate investigation of anything that they did not need his help. I told my father that police were harassing, threatening me, and want me to suffer and die and not to help them with their campaign. My father would not stop calling police and giving them information to harass me, so I have not talked to him in about 4 years, and may never again.

When I see police, I think of them as an LA Street Gang, armed thugs, not law enforcement.

I no longer believe in the American Dream.

If there is a gun ban and Free Speech is eliminated, why shouldn't I, or any other American consider going to live out their living under a less oppressive regime such as in China or former Soviet Union?

24/7 domestic spying is not freedom. Being forced to suffer to pay for the rise of the Police State and for endless wars is complete Bullshit! I wish to opt out of this circle fuck. 

Happy Father's Day.

Police Shooting the Public, Rampages?

Police, for the most part don't get investigated when they rob, rape, beat, torture, kidnap, and even murder civilians. Police investigate police actions. So, how is that working out for us?
The videos of the Florida and New York City incidents are not isolated. 

Police now have bullet proof, bomb proof, armored cars with turbo diesel motors to get on scenes to better rape, rob, torture, abduct, abuse, and even murder you. [Picture of vehicle with post]. 

Text with below video:

Published on May 10, 2014
MIAMI (CBSMiami) -- On December 10, more than two dozen police officers from across Miami Dade County converged on a blue Volvo that had crashed in the backyard of a townhouse on 65th Street just off 27th Avenue.

As the car was wedged helplessly between a light pole and a tree, nearly a minute passed before officers opened up -- firing approximately 50 bullets at the car and the two unarmed men inside the vehicle.

The two men inside the car survived that initial volley of gunfire, according to witnesses, who said they could see the men moving inside the Volvo. Everything went quiet for nearly two minutes before the officers opened up a second time -- unleashing an unrelenting torrent of bullets that lasted almost 25 seconds. By the time it was over, the two men inside the car were dead.

CBS4 News has learned a total of 23 officers fired a total of at least 377 rounds.

Police Spying on & Arresting Citizens Advocating Paying Less Property Taxes?

You can be arrested for displaying an election sign that is not for the international police and judicial worker union chosen candidate. You can be spied on, beaten up, arrested, lose your marriage, home, children, and life as you know it for advocating paying less taxes and for Free Speech. The below text was placed in [Vermont US Senator Patrick Leahy's web contact form]:

NSA type NDAA Patriot Act like domestic spying and espionage was going on pre-9/11 to go after, arrest, beat up, set up, plant evidence on, imprison, financially ruin, break up families, cause job loss, and even murder citizens who advocated paying less property taxes or questioned policies of the international union for police, judicial workers, and legislative workers. Does this sound like stealth international criminal occupation of our Homeland?

Stafford Springs Connecticut police tried to recruit me to their criminal gang. I refused to join. Police spied on me for advocating paying less property taxes. I was then told by police that I did not own my home, wasn't allowed to be married, have my daughter, have employment, and was kicked out of Connecticut. I was also threatened by police with being beaten, murdered, and/or spending the rest of my life in prison.

I committed no crimes. After they did all the above except for murdering me, I took political asylum in Vermont.

[Then 26 year old UConn graduate Student Tomas Foral was in possession of military grade Anthrax during the height of the Anthrax events]. Then US Attorney John A. Danaher III helped get Foral no report probation, a $100 fine, and erasure of the charges. Danaher later became Commissioner of Connecticut State Police then Connecticut Judge.

Police in Connecticut and other states were out to beat up, terrorize, harm, imprison, and even murder citizens who would resist elimination of the US Constitution for an event that was coming. This was pre-9/11.

Did Connecticut State Police Intelligence terrorize you too Mr. Leahy? Do you have any questions for me Mr. Leahy? Mr. Leahy, are you part of the problem or are you part of the solution?

The above picture was [found here]. It is the Anthrax Letter that was sent to Leahy back in 2001. Vermont US Senator Patrick Leahy is a Democrat. Republicans were mostly in charge back then. Does it make sense that terrorists would terrorize a leading member of an opposition party when they are trying to terrorize the party in power? I think it was the Coup's message to Leahy, "Get on board, or else!"

What happened to discretion? Is a person a threat to public safety, or is a police state being thugs and profiteering? This story makes my blood boil and question all that the US now is:
