The rise and fall of mob boss 'Dapper Don' John Gotti who killed people for being late
New York mobster played on a public persona for the camera when he was secretly a tyrant in private.Gotti, who was nicknamed the “Dapper Don” due to his style, was described as the first “media don” as he portrayed a friendly manner to the public and cameras.However, according to testimony from former mobsters who helped finally put him behind bars, Gotti was a trigger happy tyrant.Gotti’s flashy mentality also drew him resentment and hospitality from other crime families in the area as he regularly posed for newspaper photographs like he was a celebrity.He assumed command of the Gambino family after previous boss Paul Castellano was killed, which Gotti was linked to.Gotti took hold of the family when it had 23 active crews, about 300 members and more than 2,000 associates with an estimated $500 million a year made, according to website Biography.He ran the Gambino crime family during the late 1980s to the early 1990s and was dubbed "Teflon Don" due to charges never sticking until his world came crashing down with an FBI investigation.The audio tapes were ultimately what led to Gotti’s downfall with the evidence the FBI had on him, which included wiretaps of the Ravenite Social Club he regularly visited, being very incriminating.It also showed Gotti in a different light to what the public saw with one tape revealing a threat to one of his members for not returning his calls.According to the New York Times, Gotti said: “'Listen, I called your (expletive deleted) house five times yesterday; now if your wife thinks you are a (expletive deleted) dunsky or if she's a (expletive deleted) dunsky and you're gonna disregard my (expletive deleted) phone calls, I'll blow you and that (expletive deleted) house up.''The tapes also

She let a kid go that close to a bl**dy train?" A fourth added.Shocked that Jean almost injured her son, Stacey yelled at her mother but Jean wasn't at all phased by Stacey's anger and labelled her a "b***h.*Martin Fowler who accompanied Stacey to the station reminded the market stall owner that her mother is not well and needs help mentally.
