ITALIANS AS PIONEERS AND INVENTING MAFIAS

Unread post by mayugastank » December 19th, 2008, 9:34 pm

THE WORD MAFIA IS A DISTINCTLY ITALIAN ONE ITS LIKE SOMEONE TAKING THE WORD CHOLO , AND CALLING A BLACK OR WHITE GUY ONE. I HAVE POSTED THE SIMILIARITIES OF THE EME WITH THE COSA NOSTRA, BUT THE TRUTH REMAINS THAT THE EMES STRUCTURE ORGANIZATION , IDEAS CAME FROM THE ITALIAN MAFIA. THE ONGOING DRUG WAR IN MEXICO WAS TAKEN TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL BY MEMBERS OF THE EME WHO TRAVELED AND SHOWED MEXICAN DRUG GANGS HOW TO DO BUSINESS AND KILL RIVALS -THEY GOT THOSE IDEAS BY COPYING THE ITALIAN MODEL FOR STRUCTURE AND GREASEY PAYOFFS AND WITNESS INTIMIDATION. AS SUCH THEY HAVE BECOME THE 2ND MOST POWERFUL FORCE IN ORGANIZED CRIME IN THE WORLD AFTER THE PIONEERS THE ITALIANS. PABLO ESCOBAR THE PIONEER OF MODERN DRUG TRAFFICKING , CAME UP WITH HIS VISIONS AND IDEAS ON FORMING A CARTEL BY COPYING AL CAPONES VENTURES DURING PROHIBITION. SADLY THE MODEL WOULDNT LAST , AS THE IDEA OF A MAFIA WAS STILL A NEW THEORY IN LATIN AMERICA. THE EME, AND CHICANO GANGSTERS ARE A UNIQUE AMERICAN BORN PHENOMENON . IT WAS A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THEY BECAME SOPHISTICATED. THEIR BEING ABLE TO TAKE THE NUMBER 2 SPOT IN THE WORLD OF ORGANIZED CRIME HAS BEEN TO FOLLOW THE ITALIAN STRUCTURE. FROM A SIMPLE LOW LEVEL ORGANIZATION OF TEENAGE BOYS IN NEIGHBORHOOD CLICKS , THEY HAVE CHANGED THE FACE OF THE DRUG WAR IN MEXICO . NO LONGER DO INDIVIDUAL FAMILIES RUN THE GANGS -BUT MEXICAN CARTELS HAVE ADAPTED TO THE ITALIAN MODEL OF BLOOD OATHS AND FAMILIAR STRUCTURES. THIS NEW PHENOMENON WAS BROUGHT BY A VERY OLD GANG THE EME. THE EME CHANGED THE DYNAMICS OF THE FELIX ARELLANO CARTEL BY TAKING RUTHLESSNESS AND SMARTS TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL IN MASHING THEIR ENEMIES. THE MAJOR HIT MEN OF THE WAR IN MEXICO ARE EME AFFILIATED GANGSTERS OR IN ACTUAL CASES MEMBERS OF THE EME. BAT MARQUEZ AND POPEYE BARRON TO NAME A FEW. BOTH MEMBERS OF THE AMERICAN EME, WHO WENT WITH A VISION ,PLAN AND POWER AND ESCALATED THE TIJUANA DRUG WAR TO WHAT IT IS NOW.THESE 2 MEMBERS OF THE EME WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR SEVERAL HIGH PROFILE MURDERS( THE CARDINAL AND BLANCOCORNELAS THE EDITOR OF TIJUANAS FIRST DRUG BATTLING NEWSPAPER) BATS INTELLIGENCE AND VISION WAS AT THE PINNACLE OF MAKING THE EME WHAT IT IS TODAY -THE ITALIAN STRUCTURE AND IDEAS OF LIMITING MEMBERSHIP TO ONLY THE MOST INTELLIGENT AND ELITE MEMBERS OF CRIMINAL GANGS IS WHAT HAS GIVEN THEM THEIR STRENGTH. ONE EME SOLDIER CAN CONTROL HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE JUST LIKE THE OLD STYLE ITALIAN MAFIA CAPOS USED TO .

YOU ARE WRITING A BUNCH OF BULL-SHIT, AND HAS NO RELATION WITH THE THREAD, I DONT KNOW IF YOU TRYNA UP THE ITALIANS, OR THE MEXICANS , FO REALS. THERE ARE THINGS THAT ARE NOT TRUE, LIKE YOU SAY THE EME TAUGHT THE MEXICAN CARTELS, WHICH I FIND FUNNY, THE EME IS JUST A BUNCH OF BUTT RAPPIN BUDDIES IN PRISON THAT HAPPEN TO HAVE INFLUENCE ON MEXICAN STREET GANGS IN CALIFORNIA, NOTHING MORE. SO HOW THESE GUYS GOING TO INFLUENCE THE MEXICAN CARTELS ? NO WAY
THE MEXICAN CARTELS STARTED WITH OTHER DRUGS AND THEN SWITCHED TO COCAINE, AND ARE SELF TAUGHT, EVEN DEVELOPING THERE OWN STRATEGIES, SO THE EME MEMBERS HAVE CROSSED THE BORDER, AND BUY QUANTITIES, BUT NOTHIN ELSE, THE EME COULD HAVE GOT A PIECE OF THE CAKE, BUT THEY DIDNT, WHY ? CAUSE THEY DONT HAVE THE ORGANIZATION, CAUSE A BUNCH OF 17 YEAR OLDS AGAINST 35 YEAR OLD HITMEN, JUST THINK WHO WINS. SO THE MEXICAN CARTELS EACH TIME STARTED TO GET DEEPER BECAUSE THE COLOMBIANS RETIRED, BUT THE EME DIDNT HAVE SHIT TO DO WITH THAT, ONLY SOMETIMES THE CARTELS HAVE RECRUITED EME MEMBERS TO DO HITS, BUT A SMALL NUMBER OF THEM, AND CANT BE COMPARED WITH THE ZETAS.
AND THEN U COMPARE THE ITALIAN MAFIA WITH THE PRISON GANG MEXICAN MAFIA, TOTALLY DIFFERENT THINGS, THE ITALIAN MAFIA RUNS SOLDIERS NOT FROM PRISON, AND THE OTHERS RUN IT FROM PRISON.

AFO Enforcer and Mexican Mafia Member Faces New Drug Charges NEWS RELEASE SUMMARY - June 5, 2008 San Diego, CA - United States Attorney Karen P. Hewitt announced today the unsealing of five criminal complaints charging a total of twelve individuals with federal drug trafficking and firearm violations. The charges stem from an undercover investigation conducted by the San Diego Violent Crimes Task Force Gang Group into the illegal activities of the Mexican Mafia prison gang and associated Latino street gangs in the San Diego area. Four of the five complaints charge eleven defendants, including Mexican Mafia member Jose Alberto “Bat” Marquez, with Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine. Marquez, who is currently in federal custody, was indicted in the Southern District of California in 2002 for conspiracies to import and distribute marijuana and cocaine as part of the Arellano-Felix drug trafficking organization; as noted in the 2002 indictment, Marquez acted as an enforcer, bodyguard, and caretaker of stash houses for the Arellano-Felix organization. Marquez was extradited from Mexico to the United States in January 2007. The complaint alleges that, in April 2007, Marquez orchestrated a methamphetamine deal involving at least two other Mexican Mafia associates, despite being in federal custody.






Mexican drug cartel gunman arrested for attempted murder

New York, January 29, 2008—The Committee to Protect Journalists urges Mexican authorities to fully investigate the alleged involvement of Alfredo Araujo Avila, a top hit man for the Arellano Félix drug cartel, in the shooting of editor J. Jesús Blancornelas a decade ago. Araujo was arrested Saturday in Tijuana by the Mexican military, according to international news reports.

As part of President Felipe Calderón’s administration’s crackdown on drug trafficking, soldiers stormed a house in Tijuana and arrested Araujo after an anonymous tip-off, said Reuters. Mexican law enforcement officials have described Araujo as one of the top assassins of the powerful Arellano Félix drug cartel. According to The New York Times, he is a U.S. citizen.



Araujo, known as “Popeye,” is among the suspects in the murder of Roman Catholic Cardinal Juan Posadas Ocampo, shot on May 24, 1993, while sitting in his car at Guadalajara airport, The Associated Press reported. Mexican authorities have also named Araujo as a suspect in the 1997 murder attempt against Blancornelas, founder and editor of the weekly Tijuana-based magazine Zeta. Blancornelas’ bodyguard, Luis Valero, was killed in the attack, and Blancornelas was gravely wounded.

“We are encouraged by the prospect of justice in the assassination attempt against
Zeta’s founder,” said CPJ Executive Director Joel Simon. “We urge Mexican authorities to ensure that Araujo’s involvement in the shooting against Blancornelas is fully investigated. Violence against journalists will never cease until authorities prove they will go after the perpetrators.”

The shooting attack against Blancornelas was prompted by an investigative piece in Zeta describing how the Arellano Félix cartel recruited gunmen from violent street gangs in San Diego’s Barrio Logan neighborhood. The leader of the Barrio Logan assassins was a veteran gangster named David Barron Corona, who earned the Arellano Félix family’s loyalty by saving two of the brothers from an ambush. Blancornelas published an article identifying Barron Corona as one of the top cartel enforcers.

A few weeks later, Barron Corona and a team of assassins ambushed Blancornelas while he was on his way to work. The assassination attempt failed only because Barron Corona was killed by one of his own gunmen when a bullet ricocheted and struck him in the eye.

Blancornelas died of natural causes in November 2006.

Created in 1980, Zeta is one of the only publications to regularly run investigations on organized crime, drug trafficking, and corruption in Mexico’s northern states, where self-censorship is rampant. The cost of Zeta’s coverage of crime along the U.S.-Mexico border has been high: Héctor Félix Miranda, co-founder of the magazine, was assassinated in 1988, and co-editor Francisco Ortiz Franco was murdered in 2004. Adela Navarro Bello, the weekly’s general director, was given an International Press Freedom Award by CPJ in 2007.
