I thought the main reason they whacked Barboza was that he had called
Patriarca a faggot.

before I forget,those carbine blasts came on a san Francisco street. It is

Now they got PayDay loan counters whose interest points are way higher than
the mob's rates, and the government doesn't qualify that as "usery".

Barboza was an animal. He may have been small in stature but those damn
gorilla hands and bull neck were no joke. He was as vicious as they came.

Author Dale Porter (11 months)
Despite the fact Joe became an informant he was also one of the deadliest
hitmen ever in the history of the Boston underworld.Utterly fearless this
man was a legend,not some wannabe that's glorified as today's
"gangsters".This guy was the Real Deal.

Author Lenny Cash (8 months)
There seem to be a lot of negative opinions from people regarding Joe
Barboza's decision to become an informant for the FED's. I don't see why,
honestly. Joe stated his reasons for doing so, which I find completely
reasonable, and he also expressed that he was conflicted about it in the
beginning. For the people who want to label him a "rat", technically, it's
true but I think you need to understand the fact that it was the Mob who
pushed him to do it, even going as far as threatening the lives of his
family. What would you do in that situation? Think about it.

Seeing as Joe was Portuguese and not Italian, he had high aspirations to
make himself worthy enough to break through La Cosa Nostra's ethnic barrier
to become a member himself. He wouldn't have turned against them unless he
felt he was genuinely betrayed. He was a real gangster and as loyal as they
come, but the people he worked for took him for granted. Somebody like
Henry Hill could be labeled a rat in the truest sense of the term because
Henry didn't become an informant out of circumstances he couldn't control.
Henry simply fucked up and chose to go that route to save his own ass,
which wasn't the case with Joe, and I hope they point that out in the soon
to be film about him based on Casey Sherman's book "ANIMAL."

Joseph Barboza was a real gangster for sure and apparently a very gifted
artist, as well. The underworld could use more Portuguese. Speaking of
which, if anyone is interested look up Timothy J. Mello A.K.A "Timmy the
Bat" who was another Portuguese gangster from the East Coast that was also
highly feared like Barboza and even more financially successful than
Barboza and Henry Hill combined. I'm surprised there isn't anything on him
here on youtube.

WALLYTUBE101's channel, but I decided to come here and comment seeing as

someone to just swipe a person's personal uploaded videos without giving

barboza didn't have the brains to plan robberies thats why he was just a
thug nothing more and nothinmg less even if he was a made man he still only
been a killer and you for real he sold loads drugs have u ever read the

There's been no shortage of irish mob movies out of it's not as
if the formula doesn't work. You're basically trying to prove an obvious's like asking me to be surprised the average wage in NYC is
larger than Boston. It's a bigger city with bigger rackets. Never heard of
Ray Patriarca? He ran Boston for 30 years, that's who Barboza was doing
hits for, while Hill was what running errands?

I'm disputing any of that, but Henry Hill seems more like a hanger on who
just happened to be around some big shit. Barboza seems like more a
gansters gangster.

i'm saying what did henry hill do? pass on a tip about lufthansa? the rest
of the movie he's just a drug addict descending in the logical conclusion
of being busted and having to turn informant. Barboza was on the frontlines
of one of the bloodiest gang wars in modern America....that's plenty for a
film. He was in a crew with Steve Flemmi.

Hate to break this news to you. Natalie is a pervert. She's a femdom and
her former husband Jack was a perv also. In the 80s Natalie had a life size
mechanical robot which she would show off on air at times. One time a
cableman was inside her house and he saw the robot with the groin section
missing and while working inside the house he found the missing section
with a penis attached to it. Natalie's perverted lifestyle was discovered
(homemovies) and she was forced to resign from channel 5.
