A Few Words From Ron

For far too long; many in the public have been enamored with the mob and its criminal acts.

The fascination with this cold-blooded brotherhood that is embedded in their very being is mostly the result of Hollywood’s glamorization of the Mafia and organized crime.

I have heard; “well, they do not cause me any problems” or “the FBI is out to get them even if it means framing them.” Some naively go as far as saying; “If they criminals why haven’t they been convicted and put in jail?

This is most unfortunate because they do hurt each and every one of us in North America and many other countries around the world. Does anyone really think that their activities are limited to gambling and labor racketeering?

Take only a few moments and if you ponder over the things that hurt you and your family such as: contaminated soil, the air you breath, the taxes you pay, the politicians you elect, the high price of food, child pornography, illicit drugs that are sold near our children’s schools, tainted court proceedings, some news and media journalists, women slavery, telephone scams, embezzlement, stock and securities fraud, counterfeiting, organ trafficking, money laundering, illegal arms trade, economic espionage and on and on.

You name it and they are involved. Now sit back and think that these bottomless barbaric practices are OK. This is what is happening each and every day and these illegalities cost the tax payer billions of dollars not to mention the bodily damage it has on many of us.

When I was a labor leader, the mafia put me on a high pedestal and I was cuddled by many of my relatives’ friends and everyone who surrounded me.

When it was learned that I was secretly working for the FBI, I was deserted and thought as a pariah. My acting solely out of conscience and freely cooperating without a criminal act hanging over my head was met with jeers. I tried to do the right thing for the workers I represented who were members of a union totally dominated by mob control and victimized by ruthless thugs.

I perfectly understand fear and I hold no grudges against those that knew their economic livelihood would be curtailed and their lives put in harms way. This I comprehend and accept.

What I don’t recognize is those so called friends and relatives that turned against me for personal profit and acceptance by the mob. They should be ashamed of themselves for their collaborating with an enemy of the people. Equally corrupt elected officials, a couple of reporters who under the banner of “The Truth is Fair” surrey favor from the mob and or its lackeys by defaming the investigators and its witnesses and heaping platitudes on the investigated.

We see what is happening and how many of us are still suffering from a loss of a job, a home and essentially a way of life. Does anyone believe that mob members and its associates are suffering economically like the rest of us? I did not write my book “The Triangle Exit” for financial reasons. If I wanted money, all I had to do is going along with the mob and I would be very wealthy today. It’s not for the riches and fame but a story of my life and why I chose the path of “peace of mind” and my effort to curtail an evil that has mutated; yet remains ever present and chasing innovative ways to manipulate and make off with your last dollar.
