  • 50:42 "Thug and a Racketeer". What's interesting about that line is that it's essentially the reason he's still alive. The worst kind of mob guy outlived them all. The thug side of him is disgusting, but somehow he was smart enough to make it out. It's just bizarre.

  • So let me get this straight from all you I love Gotti people..... you would take a life sentence for someone who is going to set you up and make you take the fall ? And when when you are locked up, you family is dirt poor and his family is thriving and he is living his best life????? Huh? And how can a snitch snitch on a snitch???? Make it make sense because I’m side eyeing some of you Italian- Americans for saying this man is a snitch. He is no angel but I think he snatched gotti by the balls for trying to fuck him over....

  • That's how you do an interview.

  • Sammy the bull little did he know Gotti would have wacked him anyway and set him up regardless even as underboss look what Gotti did to Paul Castilano the actual boss if you think about it Gotti TOOK the sucker way of becoming boss by killing the made guy rather than earning it Paul Castilano was a business man did operations in the shadows while John Gotti wanted to be the president of the United States

    • @OhhhJimmyboy That isn't what he is saying at all. He's in his books doing the same shit. Just like John Gotti, Sammy says that Gotti NEVER pulled a trigger. "I don't doubt he would have" he says. What he's saying is that everyone in the room had balls just for being there. Attacking a man from behind when he's not looking requires ZERO balls. I've pulled the trigger and even when it's someone who wants to kill you back in a warzone, there is something different about KNOWING you just ended someone's life. He very well could be saying that he didn't pull the trigger just because he doesn't want that out there. Because most mob guys that are alive from that era say Sammy was the most feared guy within the mafia.

    • @cloudykai obviously you wont see him in the physical world. That's not what anybody believes. It's the energy that people feel when they pray, they feel alot of love. In the spiritual world, people believe there is a God that heads it all. The spiritual world has alot of evidence for than against. Research astral projection, and what psychedelics cause people to see. I'm the one that wants to shoot down evidence? 😂😂you sound so closed minded, it's ironic you would say that. Science proves that there are 12 dimensions. So it would be pretty moronic to say that beings dont exist in each dimension. Beings exist in the 3rd, we can see that in the physical world. Our eyes cant see everything, and our ears cant hear everything. Science proved that there are beings all around us that we cant hear nor see. In the 1st, and 2nd dimension. The theory behind psychedelics is that our soul is able to travel through these dimensions and our eyes are a protectant and that protectant gets lifted and you can see these lower dimensional and higher dimensional beings. Theres definitely something there and to deny that would be a slap in the face to science as well. Research the pineal gland as well.
