Personal Quote:

The Mafia has survived so long because they have stayed the same as far as their rules and regulations. They keep their members in line by fear and intimidation. If you get caught breaking one of these rules, you're gonna die. They don't quote Shakespeare. This is not the movies. They are a dangerous plague on our society.


A former FBI agent whose career was the basis for the movie Donnie Brasco (1997). See more »
