MAFIA: The Modern Mob

Shaw because of corruption charges related to organized crime, caused law enforcement to stop accommodating the Mafia. Lawyer-turned-gangster Frank DeSimone was victorious. The number of high profile murders and gangsters moving into the West Coast combined with the recall of Mayor Frank L. His reign as boss was short-lived when he mysteriously disappeared in Jack Dragna took control of the family after Ardizzone's death in and made peace with the National Syndicate. When William H. Parker became Chief of Police for the Los Angeles Police Department in , the police started cracking down on organized crime instead of assisting it. The Los Angeles crime family is the last Mafia family left in the state of California. By the end of the s he was rapidly expanding his power and influence. He survived two attempts on his life before he was murdered in Chicago in while having a haircut. Attempts to buy out the company and to strong arm its owners didn't work, so they set up their own company called Trans-America. With Crawford and Parrot controlling city hall and the local press, the City Hall Gang was able to operate bootlegging, prostitution, and illegal gambling rackets in the shadows with little law enforcement scrutiny. In a biography of Fratianno was published, The Last Mafioso by Ovid Demaris, which along with his court testimonies is the source for a lot of information on the history of the family. These group of men harassed the Mafia throughout the s. It was becoming clear that Ardizzone's faction was winning the war. Since his death the crime family has been on a gradual decline, with the Chicago Outfit representing them on The Commission. He was honored with a place on The Commission, the only boss west of Chicago to hold a spot on the council. Once Bugsy Siegel ran out of favor with New York, he was ordered to be killed. In August Palumbo was the seventh bootleggers killed in a six week period. In the late s, California Attorney General Earl Warren took command of a tough assault on Dragna's empire, most notably shutting down the gambling ships run by Anthony Cornero. This all changed when Marco was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon in and the City Hall Gang broke down after a reform movement swept L. With the deaths of Buccola and DiCiolla in and , respectively, Ardizzone who was the prime suspect in both murders was the undisputed leader of crime in L. When prohibition ended in , Dragna operated a massive loan shark and illegal gambling business. Along with Dragna avoiding the spotlight and public life, he often was given the reputation as a weak ruler. A disappointed Roselli, who felt that DeSimone rigged the election and wanted Tom Dragna to get it, transferred back to the Chicago Outfit. In the late s, Aladena Fratianno became the second member in American Mafia history to testify against the Mafia. Soon after several of his family members were arrested for the bombing of Mickey Cohen's home. He quickly returned to power and took control of rackets in Los Angeles. Although his murder officially remains unsolved, one theory is that Dragna's men were given the order to kill him. He later surrendered, and was questioned in the Kefauver hearings along with Roselli and Bompensiero, but denied all accusations against him. Otherwise they used threats, violence, arson and extortion to control the Plaza area, which was the heart of the Italian American community of Los Angeles at the time. Johnny Roselli would have been a great choice but he was a member of the Chicago Outfit. The organization had some political and social motives, but mostly served as a strong-arm muscle for the crime family. To change this they cooperated with the police. Mafia only holds a fraction of its former power. Siegel was able to get independent bookies to pay tribute to Dragna's already flourishing gambling business. With the rise of bootleggers in the s, the Matranga's power declined and was eliminated with Buccola's disappearance in He was possibly the first boss of what would become the Los Angeles crime family. Cuccia was a relative of Ardizzone and member of his crime family. Dragna fled the state and was wanted for questioning. Ardizzone teamed up with Jack Dragna and they worked closely together for over 10 years. Its first leader was Orsario "Sam" Matranga who started leading the family in Joseph Cuccia was a well-respected criminal amongst the underworld, who served as a translator in court for Italians who didn't speak English. Fratianno did the same after his release from prison in With Jack Dragna gone and his brother Tom Dragna retiring a year after his death, the crime family slipped out of control.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} With Ardizzone gone, the Matrangas fulfilled their promise of revenge. Their legitimate business was in fruit vending. The early years of organized crime in California were marked by the division of various Italian street gangs such as the Black Hand organizations in the early 20th century. The most prominent of these was the Matranga crime family, a gang ran by relatives of Charles Matranga, founder of the New Orleans crime family. Giving up information on their enemies and receiving immunity for most of their crimes, the Matrangas were able to expand their power and influence. The main reason Siegel came to California was to organize a horse racing wire service on the West Coast for the National Syndicate, which Siegel and Dragna worked closely together on setting up. By , Dragna controlled gambling in Los Angeles. The L. According to Micky Cohen, Dragna was very powerful and very well respected, but did not put things together the way the East Coast bosses preferred. Armed with top hitman Frank Bompensiero and Jimmy Fratianno who committed over 30 murders on the orders of their superiors , Dragna muscled his way into controlling territory stretching throughout California and Southern Nevada. Dragna and Siegel tried many methods to take over Continental Press Service the main wire service at the time. While other Mafia families in the country were prospering in the s, the L. Aside from this however, Dragna resented Siegel's power to infiltrate unions in the movie industry. He ruled in Ardizzone's favor, causing the Matrangas to threaten harm on Cuccia. Mafia onto the national stage. When he tried to challenge higher powers by moving into syndicated gambling rackets, he was murdered in Joseph Ardizzone returned to California in and was acquitted of murdering Maisano in due to lack of evidence and no witnesses willing to testify. The Chicago Outfit eventually took over rival Continental Racing Services and gave the entire percentage of the racing wire on the West Coast to Dragna, enraging Siegel. The current family is small compared to other families and is involved in fraud, extortion, loan sharking, illegal gambling, drug trafficking, and legitimate businesses. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Since its inception in the early s, it has spread throughout Southern California. DeSimone officially stepped down from the top position in the s, but was still the real power within his organization. Although not having to share power with other Mafia families like New York's Five Families, never having a strong Italian-American population in the region leaves the family to contend with the many street gangs in the "Gang Capital of America". However, their power was limited to within the Plaza community. This made him a well liked man in the Italian community. Like most Mafia families in the United States, the L. Under Ardizzone's tenure, organized crime began consolidating under his banner as he dominated criminal activities in L. Siegel's chief lieutenant Mickey Cohen took charge of his gambling and loan shark operations in Los Angeles County and eventually became Dragna's next target. Although he wasn't able to infiltrate many of the labor unions in the entertainment industry, he involved the Los Angeles family in the entertainment business and brought the L. In the late s, Jack Dragna and Johnny Roselli constantly battled Charlie Crawford for control of the lucrative bootlegging rackets. On September 25, Cuccia was shot and killed, allegedly by Tony Matranga. Like all families in the United States, the L. Since then a host of mobsters fought to take control of liquor operations that Marco and the City Hall Gang previously dominated. For independent bookmakers, Dragna would use extortion to collect money from their operations. Although not having a big hand in labor union rackets, the Dragna crime family did infiltrate some unions in the laundromat and dress importing business. He maintained strong connections with mobsters in New Orleans, Colorado, Chicago and was a cousin, close friend and had connections to New York City mobster Giuseppe Morello, the first boss of the Morello crime family. Di Giorgio was known as an intimidating and forceful man who was in conflict with several local underworld factions. In addition, his brother Tom Dragna was made his consigliere while his nephew Louis Tom Dragna became a made man in Dragna was the most successful boss the L. Frank Bompensiero and Fratianno started serving prison sentences in and , respectively. During prohibition the two were successful in running bootlegging operations in Southern California as well as gambling and extortion. Sam and his successor Pietro "Peter" Matranga, were both murdered within 33 days of each other in Mike Marino aka Mike Rizzo , an Ardizzone ally was responsible for the murders. While their next leader, cousin Tony Buccola was able to get revenge and kill Marino in , many years of violence ruined the Matranga family. In response, Ardizzone shot and killed Maisano on July 2, Ardizzone then fled authorities and was a wanted fugitive. Dragna's family however, remain strong throughout the early s. In Cohen was imprisoned for tax evasion and the L. Siegel made millions extorting movie production companies and only had to pay Dragna a tribute for working on his territory. Dragna would send in men to threaten businesses, then the owners would pay Dragna for protection unaware that these were Dragna's own men. Ardizzone returned to Los Angeles in and resumed his feud with the Matranga family. On February 14, , the California Commission on Organized Crime singled out Dragna as the head of a crime syndicate that controlled crime in Southern California. In Jack Dragna died of a heart attack and a vote was made by the senior members of the family to elect its new boss. Due to over 50 unsolved gangland killings in the first half of the century, the L. When prominent Black Hand leader Joseph Ardizzone was involved in a dispute with George Maisano, a member of the Matranga gang, they both went to Cuccia to mediate the dispute.
