mafia

The shooting of 'Franky Boy' Cali, the assumed mafia boss of the Gambino family, surprised many of his Staten Island neighbours who claim that the dealings of the mafia are nowadays quiet and decent, and don't really bother anyone at all. Cali is described as a quiet, family man, struggling to keep the family name still in the game, since the Italian mobsters have been pushed out by the Latin cartel and the Russians. 'It's hard to keep up these days, especially with the recession, and a minimum of social care,' an older anonymous mafia member explained.
