Background information and notes Edit

  • This episode shares similarities with the John Gotti crime syndicate case. Gotti and five of his brothers all joined the Mafia at early ages and Gotti soon became boss of the well known Gambino crime family, one of the Five Families in New York City. He became widely known for his outspoken personality and flamboyant style that eventually caused his downfall. In 1992, Gotti was convicted of racketeering, thirteen murders, obstruction of justice, truck hijacking, conspiracy to commit murder, illegal gambling, extortion, tax evasion, loansharking, and other crimes and was sentenced to life in prison, where he died ten years later.
