John Gotti Jr. tells the story of how he became the man he is today. When you realize that family is more important than the mafia, that's when he steps out of the shadows. The father lives and dies "by the sword." Very sad but moving.
Gotti the truth you never knew
This is a very interesting series. Gotti was beloved by many people and did what appeared to be a lot of good for his community. Whether a front for his other life or in general how he lived is yet to be known many may have opinions either way. My take from this series is that Gotti had a way he viewed society should be led and that government had no business in his business and as a result made him an outlaw for living how he wanted. While living rather modestly despite his riches he never over exemplified his lifestyle with his family but he did glorify the mob boss lifestyle and the fact for many he was untouchable until his fateful mistake and trust in what would be the Judas betrayal. Had Gotti lived by his decree to absolute he may have had many more years outside of prison and many more body bags would've been filled. He was not the man to go head to head with and being the boss was his ultimate travesty. His son so desperately wanting to fill his fathers shoes had quickly been frightened away from the lifestyle once his toes were wet. The reality of cement shoes and deep lake waters many of Gotti's fellow men had simply disappeared. John Jr. tells his story growing up the son, the Jr., the eventual temporary boss himself realizing his time must end he headed clean to a new life where his family was more important than the power and money he could obtain living the lifestyle of America's most ruthless mob family. A must see if you want to learn some history and find this sort of thing fascinating.
