Pipi of the DeCavalcante



Joseph “Pippi” (Sometimes spelled Pippy) Guerriero, of New Britain (But hailed from a massive slum on Hartford’s East side) was through to be the Connecticut representative for the New Jersey-based DeCavalcante Family during the 1970s.

Guerriero had a reputation as a ruthless mob figure and numbers king who roamed the state at will without interference from other crime families or law enforcement authorities.
He was a lifelong criminal with an arrest record that dated back to at least 1937 when he was arrested for receiving stolen goods but found not guilty.

In 1942 he fined $10 for frequenting a gambling house.

In 1943 he was convicted of breach of peace and fined $100 and given a 30-day suspended sentence.

He was arrested five times in 1946 on gambling charges and paid fines amounting to $35. In 1947 he was arrested for breaking the state lottery laws (running numbers)

1953 Guerriero, was identified as the fifth man of a gang that preyed on the local underworld in central Connecticut from 19501 through 1952.  

In 1959 State troopers swooped down upon a suspected policy action headquarters in Berlin and arrested Guerriero and a dozen others.

In 1962 he was fined $150 for running numbers and was indicted on gambling and extortion charges in 1977. He worked mostly out of the Friendly Social Club and the Glen Street Social Club, gambling parlors in New Britain. In 1948 he was convicted of a violation of the policy law and fined $100 with an additional $100 for pool selling.

Guerriero's only incarceration was in 1950 when he was bound over to Superior Court on charges of breaking and entering and theft and possession of burglar tools and sentenced to six months in jail. Somehow, he never served the six months.

In 1981 New Britain Police Capt. Edward J. Kilduff Jr. was fined $5,000 Friday and sentenced to reduced concurrent sentences of 1-3 years in prison for accepting bribes from Geurriero, who also did jail time for bribing Kilduff. Kilduff accepted up to $200 a week for almost eight years beginning in the early 1970s to warn gamblers about impending police actions. The same investigation netted convictions of the third-ranking officers in the city and state police forces, seven other top police officers and

Kilduff


Guerriero died in of 1993 of natural causes.

No threats today from the Loon calling herself Patrick Murphy, journalist

I guess taking this nut public had some effect. Thank you all for your support. Don't worry we'll get em.


The murder of Tommy DeBrizzi: When I call you better come running


After the mob killed Frank Piccolo on a Bridgeport street corner September 1981 Thomas DeBrizzi of Bridgeport assumed control of the Gambino Crime Family operations in Connecticut.
DeBrizzi was a longtime associate of Frank Piccolo and had been a Made member of the Gambino family at least since 1966 and was a member of a crew within the Gambino operation run by Tommy Gambino which also included George Remini, Carmine Sciandra, Petey Castellano, Tony Megale and Giuseppe Gambino. DeBrizzi had spent the past twenty years building up a $3 million-a- gambling and loansharking operation in Stratford, Bridgeport and West Haven.


Carmine Sciandra 

Giuseppe Gambino

His record, which went back to 1941, included arrests for his arrests and convictions on illegal gambling, loan-sharking, racketeering and weapons charges. In 1952 he was arrested for transporting a woman from Augusta, Ga., to Richmond. Va., for the purpose of prostitution. In 1958, he was found guilty on charges of assault and breach in connection with two separate disturbances. In 1969, a federal "anti-loansharking" statute was used for the first time in Connecticut against DeBrizzi and his partner in crime Angelo D. DeStafano. A three-count indictment charged the two. The statue had been used only several times throughout the country. In April of 1984, state police raided six homes in a crackdown on illegal gambling including DeBrizzi’s Stratford home at 111 Hollister Street where the cops confiscated $77,000 in cash, three handguns and betting slips.
In 1985 he was indicted by a federal grand jury on three counts of illegally possessing firearms, two .38-caliber and a .44-caliber. At the time he was serving a 90-day sentence at the Community Correctional Center in New Haven on state racketeering and professional gambling charges. Possession of the unregistered guns…. DeBrizzi was a convicted felon and not allowed to own any weapons, registered or not……cost him 24 months in state prison.
Since DeBrizzi was released from federal prison in Danbury in August after serving 18 months for firearms violations, he had been slipping quietly into retirement. Cooking became his principal hobby and the 5-foot-9 gangster had put an additional 70 pounds. His appearance, once natty, was no longer so, he often used a cane, and he kept a much lower profile.
His base of power had also eroded while he was jail. "He had no muscle," said Stamford Deputy Police Chief George Mayer. "His guys were either in jail or they had gotten old. He was all alone." Seeing that, Megale started taking control over some of DeBrizzi's bookmaking and sports-betting operations in Stamford
For several years no one in law enforcement and very few in the underworld knew why DeBrizzi, a high ranking big earner Gambino Capo was killed. The only thing that was certain was that his murder was sanctioned by the Gambino command.
The Salvatore "Sammy Bull" Gravano, John Gotti's hand-picked successor, stepped forward as a cooperating federal witness said that Gotti authorized DeBrizzi murder. 


Gravano said that DeBrizzi “has to go” because he “failed come in when he was called”another words, Gotti had summoned DeBrizzi down to New York to see him but DeBrizzi refused to go. Gotti later added that DeBrizzi had not “conducted himself properly when he was in jail”

Gambino headquaters in New York where DeBrizzi was supposed to report every Tuesday

Gotti

Gotti called in George Remini and said that he had called in DeBrizzi three times and DeBrizzi never came in because in the past the family underboss, Tommy Bilotti, gave DeBrizzi the choice of coming or not coming in.  But Gotti had killed Bilotti (below) and the rules had changed. 



Gotti was also upset because Phil Loscalzo and Giuseppe Gambino were helping DeBrizzi's run his operation in Connecticut without Gotti’s consent. Remini is supposed to have argued on behalf of DeBrizzi, urging Gotti to demote the old man from Capo to solider.

Remini

But Gotti wouldn’t hear it. He wanted DeBrizzi dead because he wanted to send a message within his family that when John Gotti spoke, they were to listen and do as he commanded.  
At midday on January 30, a Saturday, DeBrizzi arrived at his wife Veronica’s dress shop with of his closest ally and associate, Harry Riccio, a one-time prizefighter with a record for receiving stolen goods, loan sharking and gambling. He was also one of Tony Megale's subordinates in the Fairfield County Gambino crew. Megale would eventually take over all Gambino operations in Connecticut. In 1990, Riccio would be sentenced to 57 months in jail plus a $55,000 fine for gambling and loan sharking.

Megale

On that day, DeBrizzi told his wife that he and Riccio were going shopping for a Super Bowl dinner he planned. In fact, he may have actually gone shopping because later, investigators noted that a case of soda had to be removed from the car's trunk and placed in the back seat to make room for DeBrizzi's body.
Riccio, of Bridgeport, told investigators he last saw DeBrizzi at a Howard Johnson restaurant in Stamford where they had stopped to eat. There. DeBrizzi borrowed a car belonging to a friend of Riccio, said he needed it for a half an hour and asked Riccio to wait for him at the Howard Johnson’s.

On February 5, 1988, DeBrizzi’s frozen body was found in the trunk of the car he had borrowed in Trumbull Shopping Park. He had been shot six times. Twice in the head and four times in the back and chest.

Threats from a lunatic

Several days someone tried to post a video on a Facebook page I run called "The Connecticut Irish"

I run the page because, as my regular readers know, I am a dedicated to preserving specific parts of New England history. Before my trip to Ireland last year, I was also proud to align myself with my Irish background. I have been a guest to the White House, twice, as a representative of the Irish-American Historians group and have published (and lost money) on several books on Irish mythology.

Anyway, normally I allow just about anything to be posted on the page but I found this particular video to be blatantly anti-American in a hyper-aggressive way.  When I mentioned that on the poster's site, all hell broke loose. 

I have to say, I enjoy these on-line rumbles where you take as good as you get. But one person in the free-for-all dished it out but refuses to take it and has gone on a rampage of revenge, posing as a journalist named Patrick Murphy, an alias. I believe the lunatic behind this is a female. We couldn't find the true owner behind Skellingsgroup@ gmail.Com 


Murphy has stalked me on the internet and used that information to write to scores (11 actually) of my friends, threatening my many friends in politics with a story aligning my words to their political careers. And that's where she broke federal law. Never threaten politicians, they're survivors.

Dear Sir/ Madam 

I am writing to you with regards recent comments of John William Tuohy who seems to be the manager ...................

I am currently writing a piece I wish to publish in an article of Americans views on Ireland and I wished to know the Mayor's relationship with Mr.Tuohy, if he is an employee of your office and if he supported the comments made by him. 

The comments Mr Tuohy stated on social media are quite concerning for someone who alleges to be a member of your office. 

Mr Tuohy states that Ireland is "a second world dump"  and that

"Ireland contributes nothing to the world but noted drunks"

The most concerning comment which he states is that of Irish people as being Pro Nazis:

"Don't brag about being FROM Ireland (which country are you living off of currently? The US or England? Ever notice almost all of the Irish are FROM ireland? Your nation is a third world wreck and if it were not for us you would have sunk years ago....Pro Nazi's" 

I have attached screenshots of a few of Mr Tuohy's comments below.  

I would really like clarification as to Mr Tuohys relationship before I release my piece on the 19th March. 

Thanking you for your time and looking forward to your response regarding this matter.

Kind Regards

Patrick Murphy

Aside from badgering and threatening my friends, this loon also contacted my wife and children. She wrote an email to my youngest son asking him what it's like "To have such a pig as a father" to which he answered "Not as bad as you might think"

Patrick Murphy didn't respond.

My younger daughter got one asking why "You don't do something about your sick old man" to which she responded "We do but he keeps escaping and coming back" 

Patrick Murphy didn't respond.

She also sent a hate email to my wife as well however my wife is a psychotherapist, deemed the woman insane and this time, she didn't respond.

I get lots, mostly from unhappy mob guys who prefer that I not refer to them as mob guys. I also get a lot of insane mail from crazy people like Murphy here and I almost always let it go because they survive when the fires of insanity are stroked.

But in this case, I have to do something. Murphy has said, to my friends and family, that I would be better off dead. I don't mind being threatened with a beating, hell I'm used to that, but when it comes to death threats, I have to do something. 

We have turned Patrick Murphy and skelligsgroup@gmail.com over to the Irish Embassy and other have filed complaints with the FCC and FBI. The Irish diplomats have assured me that they will look into the matter. I know they won't but, still, its the thought that counts.  


Here's a transcript of the online debate that ignited this maniacs fury:
