Great pic, you think he whacked out Big Albert?

Easy there, Don Carlo! I can neither confirm nor deny that he was the shooter. The questions I have are "What did he gain after allegedly doing this favor for his boss?" Was it worth it? Seems like he would have done better being in one of the other five NY families.

Good questions. Given what I have read and researched I would be surprised if Gallo pulled the trigger. Removing Anastasia was a massive play and whoever was behind could not afford for it to go wrong. If we accept that Gambino was behind it (with the approval of Lucchese/Genovese) why would he hire someone as erractic as Joe Gallo. Gambino was meticulous and there was no way that he was going to bring in a loose cannon to do a job that IF it went wrong, he almost certainly would be whacked out. I support the theory that the Armone's were involved. Both Stephen and Joseph worked closely with Carlo's brother, Paolo, importing heroin via Sicily. They were part of the only crew to be involved in the importation and distribution of narcotics in the family at a time when drugs were beginning to become higly sensitive politically as well as carrying a high tarriff in terms of jail sentenses. B/c of this it feel reasonable to assume that the Armone's were highly trusted and within Gambino's inner cirlce of trust. There are reports that Joe was arrested before the hit took place and was replaced but it still stacks up that Gambino would only select a group of individuals that were reliable and trustworthy to complete a job that would enable him to realise his ambition of becoming the boss of his own family.

Genovese had to be behind it and convinced the commission to approve the hit. Allegedly, Anastasia was hit for a few reasons but he had to be stopped for breaking one very important rule "opening the books" for anyone who could pay a hefty sum. I think this was what did him in.
Genovese vs Anastasia= Don Carlo a much better fit for head of family

Agreed. Don Carlo built on what he took over and created a well oiled machine. Incredible what he achieved with all of the double dealing and back stabbing going on within the mob. Thanks again for the McClellan hearings link, made me laugh reading it when the answer to most of the questions were mobsters taking the 5th! :)
