Mob Threatened To Blind RFK's Kids
Friends of Ours ^ | 01/20/12 | Friends Of Ours

Posted on 01/20/2012 9:24:33 AM PST by AtlasStalled

Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert F. Kennedy, claims that degenerate thugs threatened to blind their "young children in an acid attack to deter" the mob buster's "investigation into labor racketeering" as reported by Lou Lumenick for the New York Post:

Speaking out in a documentary by her daughter Rory premiering today at the Sundance Film Festival, feisty matriarch Ethel Kennedy recalls a scary threat when her husband was counsel to a Senate subcommittee probing organized crime's control of labor unions.

"There was a journalist for the New York Post they had thrown acid in the face of," Mrs. Kennedy, 83, says, referring to crusading columnist Victor Riesel, blinded by a hood linked to the Mafia in a shocking 1956 attack. "We were told they were going to do the same with our children."

There's no level to which the Mafia will not stoop.

I am probably very wrong here but I always thought the Italian mob’s rule was never to hurt children. You can whack a parent but not injured a child.

My rule is to shoot anybody threatening me or my family.
When they send a second waive, they get the same.

“I always thought the Italian mob’s rule was never to hurt children.”

The mob says it respects children as a PR stunt but it will do anything in the pursuit of money and to protect itself.

For example, the Mafia long has been involved in child porn and child prostitution.

Most of what the mob says is a lie.

For example, another big mob lie is that it’s patriotic. Except in WWII the mob stole a morphine shipment worth $500,000 from the New York docks intended for wounded American soldiers, and Vito Genovese was undermining the war effort in Italy while he was with the U.S. military by stealing supplies for our soldiers and selling them on the black market.

Another big lie is that the mob is not involved in drugs when in fact it’s really mostly about drugs, and it’s role in the so-called legitimate economy really is for the purpose of laundering money and parking assets.

Don’t ever buy the myth that the mob has family values or is patriotic or possesses any redeeming qualities.

Funny thing about the Paisans. When they buy you, AND they did buy the Kennedys, they take it very badly when you don’t stay bought. But I really doubt they’d go after the kids.

True dat!!!

However, Kennedy’s are connected, this was nothing more than a turf war, one that cost brother Jack his life.
