Ralph Capone

Ralph James Capone ([1] born Raffaele James Capone; Italian: ; January 12, 1894 – November 22, 1974) was an Italian-American Chicago mobster and an older brother of Al Capone and Frank Capone. He got the nickname "Bottles" not from involvement in the Capone bootlegging empire, but from his running the legitimate non-alcoholic beverage and bottling operations in Chicago. Further family lore suggests that the nickname was specifically tied to his lobbying the Illinois Legislature to put into law that milk bottling companies had to stamp the date that the milk was bottled on the bottle. He was most famous for being named by the Chicago Crime Commission "Public Enemy Number Three" when his brother Al was "Public Enemy Number One". Early life Capone was born in 1894, in Angri, a small town in the Campania, Italy, near Mount Vesuvius, and he was the middle son of Gabriele and Teresa (née Raiola) Capone. He had eight siblings, Vicenzo, Frank, Al, Ermina, John, Matthew Capone and Mafalda Maritote. He arrived in Ame

He used to sign his edits with siglum "patv". FreeDOS involvement Villani had already been working on a DOS-like operating system for use in embedded systems for some while before the advent of FreeDOS.[2] His efforts started when he developed an MS-DOS 3.1-compatible interface emulator to write device drivers in the C high-level language instead of in assembly language,[3] as was the usual approach at that time. This interface emulator grew into a minimal operating system named XDOS around 1988.[3] He added an IPL to set up a boot environment before loading the actual operating system and developed an MS-DOS-compatible frontend API to applications.[3] In contrast

Angelo Ruggiero

Angelo Salvatore Ruggiero, Sr. (Italian: ; July 29, 1940 – December 5, 1989) was a member of the Gambino crime family and a friend of John Gotti's. Under Gotti's leadership, Ruggiero became a caporegime, although he became widely seen as an over-talkative enforcer type without the astuteness needed for running lucrative rackets. Gotti, by then the most targeted criminal in the country, came to share that assessment amid mounting investigative pressure and costly blunders by the indiscreet Ruggiero, who had completely fallen from favour by the time of his death. The FBI regarded Ruggiero, whose open defiance of law enforcement extended to swearing at the judge during a hearing, as an unpredictable psychopath not amenable to confrontational tactics. Mob family roots Ruggiero's father was a first-generation immigrant from Naples, Italy who was not involved in organized crime. Ruggiero's mother was Emma Campasano.

His seven-year reign as crime boss ended when he went to prison at age 33. Capone was born in New York City in 1899 to Italian immigrant parents. He joined the Five Points Gang as a teenager, and became a bouncer in organized crime premises such as brothels. In his early twenties, he moved to Chicago and became a bodyguard and trusted factotum for Johnny Torrio, head of a criminal syndicate that illegally supplied alcohol—the forerunner of the Outfit—and was politically protected through the Unione Siciliana. A conflict with the North Side Gang was instrumental in Capone's rise and fall. Torrio went into retirement after North Side gunmen almost killed him, handing control to Capone. Capone expanded the bootlegging business through increasingly violent means–earning himself the nickname "Scarf

James Vincenzo Capone

Richard James "Two-Gun" Hart (born James Vincenzo Capone; March 28, 1892 in Angri, Italy[1] – October 1, 1952) was a sharpshooter and prohibition agent noted for his cowboy style,[2] and the oldest brother of infamous Chicago gangster, Al Capone. Capone left home at age 16, moving from Brooklyn to Nebraska, following a street gang fight, during which his brother, later known as "Scarface" Al, was cut and famously scarred. Defending Al, Vincenzo had pushed the attacker through a plate-glass window. Fearing retaliation, he then "fled New York City, joined a circus as a roustabout and eventually adopted the last name of his idol, William S. Hart, the foremost star of Western silent films in the 1920s." He also adopted the actor’s persona as much as possible, "even earning the 'Two-Gun' moniker long attached to the motion picture star."[2] He worked to lose his Brooklyn accent and tried to disguise his Italian ancestry. He enlisted in the United States Army during World War I, served in France, and earned a com

John Joseph Gotti Jr.[1] (, Italian: ; October 27, 1940 – June 10, 2002) was an Italian-American gangster who became boss of the Gambino crime family in New York City. Gotti and his brothers grew up in poverty and turned to a life of crime at an early age. Gotti quickly became one of the crime family's biggest earners and a protégé of Gambino family underboss Aniello Dellacroce, operating out of the Ozone Park neighborhood of Queens. Early in his criminal career and following the FBI's indictment of members of Gotti's crew for selling narcotics, Gotti began to fear that he and his brother would be killed by Gambino boss Paul Castellano for selling drugs. As this fear continued to grow, and amidst growing dissent over the leadership of the crime family, Gotti organized the murder of Castellano in December 1985 and took over the family shortly thereafter, leaving Gotti as the boss of what has been described as America's most powerful crime syndicate, and one that made hundreds of millions of dollars a year fro

Gigante was one of five brothers; three of them, Mario, Pasquale, and Ralph, followed him into the Mafia. Only one brother, Louis, stayed out of the crime family, instead becoming a priest.[1] Gigante was the shooter in the failed assassination of longtime Luciano boss Frank Costello in 1957. After sharing a prison cell with Costello's rival, Vito Genovese, following Genovese's conviction for heroin trafficking, Gigante became a caporegime, overseeing his own crew of Genovese soldiers and associates who operated out of Greenwich Village.

He is credited with popularization of the term cosa nostra.[1] He was convicted of drug trafficking in 1959, and sentenced to 15 years' imprisonment.
