Mafia Leader Gun Down On Bicycle


Police standing around Bicycle that is evidence.

On Monday a mafia boss was assassinated in Sicily when he was riding his bicycle. This is being called a message from the Sicilian gang known as Cosa Nostra.

The victim Giuseppe Dainotti was 67 years old when he was shot in his head while cycling in Palermo.

The mafia boss has actually had enemies within his own gang. This starting happening after he got out of prison in 2014, where he was serving time for murder.

Witnesses called police after hearing gunshots and they claim that the killers pulled up beside the victim on a scooter according to the Guardian.

Francesco Lo Voi a Palermo prosecutor said that this is a sign from the gang Cosa Nostra that they might be lying low but are far from beaten.

“When some people claim the Mafia no longer exists or has been destroyed, something always happens to confirm it is still there,” Voi said.

“When necessary, it shoots again, in a clear and symbolic way,” he continued

This attack is just around the same time 25 years ago when the very same gang, blew up anti-mafia magistrate Giovanni Falcone. That incident happened just outside of Palermo.

 Enzo Laetizia, a secretary of the national police officials association said “Such a murder, so heinous, carried out near a school, on the anniversary of the (Falcone) massacre, shows how complex the mafia phenomenon is,”

“Tomorrow the state will remember its heroes, slain by the mafia; today the mafia showed its dynamism, by killing once more,” he mentioned.

The Sicilian mob was once-powerful and in more recent years groups such as the Ndrangheta in Calabria and the Cammora located in Naples, have surpassed it.

The commissioner Renato Cortese expressed concern that several Mafiosi people who were convicted are soon going to be released from jail. This was reported by news.au.com

“There is always the fear that if Cosa Nostra can find a rational head that can bring together the disparate souls, it could become as dangerous as it used to be,” Cortese said
