PostSubject: Information about our theme (Mafia) - All read.   Thu May 10, 2012 4:42 pm

Hello , I wrote this topic as i thought it will be useful for all the family members to know more about the mafia.

First: Mafia members:

Boss(Godfather) – The head of the family, usually reigning as a dictator, sometimes called the don or “godfather”. The Boss receives a cut of every operation taken on by every member of his family. Depending on the Family, the Boss may be chosen by a vote from the Caporegimes of the family. In the event of a tie, the Underboss must vote.

Underboss – The Underboss, usually appointed by the Boss, is the second in command of the family. The Underboss is in charge of all of the Capos, who is controlled by the Boss. The Underboss is usually first in line to become Acting Boss if the Boss is imprisoned or dies.

Consigliere – Consigliere is an advisor to the family. They are often low profile gangsters that can be trusted. They are used as a mediator of disputes or representatives or aids in meetings with other Families. They often keep the Family looking as legitimate as possible, and are, themselves, legitimate apart from some minor gambling or loan sharking. Often Consiglieres are lawyers or stock brokers, are trusted and have a close friendship or relationship with the Don. They usually do not have crew of their own, but still wield great power in the Family. They are also often the liaison between the Don and important ‘bought’ figures, such as politicians or Judges.

Caporegime (or Capo)- A Capo (sometimes called a Captain) is in charge of a crew. There are usually four to six crews in each family, possibly even seven to nine crews, each one consisting of up to ten Soldiers. Capos run their own small family, but must follow the limitations and guidelines created by the Boss, as well as pay him his cut of their profits. Capos are nominated by the Underboss, but typically chosen by the Boss himself.

Soldier – Soldiers are members of the family, and can only be of Italian background. Soldiers start as Associates that have proven themselves. When the books are open, meaning that there is an open spot in the family, a Capo (or several Capos) may recommend an up-and-coming Associate to be a new member. In the case that there is only one slot and multiple recommendations, the Boss will decide. The new member usually becomes part of the Capo’s crew that recommended him.

Associate - An Associate is not a member of the mob, and an Associate’s role is more similar to that of an errand boy. They are usually a go-between or sometimes deal in drugs to keep the heat off the actual members. In other cases, an associate might be a corrupt labor union delegate o




Second: Meaning of some words:



ACTION
Old-time term for illicit profits. Also sometimes used to refer to the potential for racket income
BOOK
A gambling racket ordinarily focused on sporting events. The racket is run by a “bookmaker.”
BUTTON
A soldier in a Mafia family. A member who can be called upon by a family boss to perform an execution.
CALL IN
The act of ordering – without explanation – a made man to report to his superiors. Mafiosi might be called in so they can be disciplined (murdered). Once the order is received, the made man must report as ordered. So, mafiosi in trouble with superiors will sometimes drop out of touch to avoid receiving the call
CAPO DI TUTTI CAPI
The leader of all leaders or boss of bosses. The most powerful Mafia boss to whom all others defer. Some know this as the Capo di capi
CLIP
Kill. Also to harm in some way.
COMMISSION
A ruling representative body serving as the national legislature and supreme court of the Mafia network. Commission members are the leaders of the more powerful Mafia families. Each is also assigned to represent minor family.
CONNECTED
A description of a Mafia “associate.”
CREW
A body of soldiers assigned to a capo. The crew typically meets on a regular basis at the capo’s headquarters.

DON
A traditional term of respect for a male in Romance languages, which has been corrupted
EARNER
One who generates income for a Mafia family. Higher levels of income are generated by “big-earners.
FENCE
One who trades in stolen goods. To sell off swag
FRIEND OF OURS
An introduction in which one Mafia member informs another that a new acquaintance is also a member. It is a means of vouching for the underworld credentials of another person. As opposed to “friend of mine,” which, in introduction, means simply what it says.
GOOMBA
Term of affection and respect
HIT
An assigned murder
HIT THE MATRESSES
Engage in an underworld feud. Key members of a family quickly move to inconspicuous safe houses. The phrase probably refers to sleeping on a mattress thrown on the floor
MADE
Formally inducted into the Mafia through a ceremony. Prospective members are called to a meeting without being given a reason. Through an elaborate ritual, they are then invited to join the Mafia. They are typically told the rules of the society, its history and hierarchy, and the general disciplinary measure for disobedience – death
MEN OF HONOR
An older term referring to Sicilian Mafiosi. The term emphasizes a link between the Mafia and Sicily’s displaced old aristocracy
MESSANGERS
A relatively recent addition to the Mafia family hierarchy. The job of the messenger is to function as liaison between specific families. Effective messengers can reduce the need for sit-downs and limit the exposure of bosses to law enforcement.
NUMBERS
A lottery game that has been a money-maker .
OFF THE RECORD
When a mobster retains all profits from an illicit business venture, without kicking up a share to his superiors.
OMERTA
A uniquely Sicilian attitude calling for non-cooperation with government authority and the settlement of disputes through personal means. Omerta typically refers to the Mafia’s strict code of silence with regard to underworld affairs
ON THE LAM
Moving secretly. Indicted mobsters, in an effort to avoid arrest, might go “on the lam,” changing their address, moving secretly from place to place
PIECE
A percentage of profit from illicit business ventures. Also a handgun
PIECE OF WORK
An assigned murder
PINCH
Arrest.
PROTECTION
An extortion racket in which business owners are assessed a tax by a local Mafia group in exchange for assurances that no harm will come to them. Also the money paid by organized criminal groups in bribes to law enforcement
RAT
To provide information to law enforcement about criminal activities of underworld associates. One who provides such information or who appears likely to give in to law enforcement pressure. See “stool pigeon.”
RUB OUT
Kill
SHAKE DOWN
Obtain money or other concessions from businesses or individuals by using intimidation or extortion.
SHYLOCK
A financial racketeer who loans money at usurious interest rates. Often shylocks arrange payment terms that never reduce the loan principal. Those who fail to make regular payments to a skylock are disciplined with violence

SIT DOWN
A meeting, perhaps called to settle a “beef.”
SKIM
The act of siphoning funds from a legitimate business enterprise to an underworld organization. Also, the money withdrawn from a venture – such as casino gambling – before income is calculated for tax purposes
SKIPPER
Another reference for capo or boss
STAND UP GUY
An individual who observes the principles of omerta even when it brings harm to himself
STRAIGHTEN OUT
Resolve a dispute. Formally induct a Mafia member
SWAG
Stolen goods
TERRITORY
An underworld jurisdiction. While this is generally understood to refer to a geographic area, it actually refers to rackets officially designated as belonging to a family
VANDETTA
A pledge of personal vengeance on an enemy. The vendetta is a solemn and secret vow.
VIG
Or “vigorish.” Percentage of each bet that is retained as income for a bookmaker. The usurious interest charged by a shylock
WHACK
