Massive Mob Bust Reaches All The Way To Ground Zero
The mob had their clutches on unions working at Ground Zero:
In 2007 - after escaping jail for extortion by convincing a judge he had only two years to live - Scopo learned that a Ground Zero jobsite foreman was complaining about being under mob control.
Scopo took the foreman for a sitdown with Colombo crime family captain Dino Calabro - bringing along his son, also named Ralph.
He later told Calabro that Little Ralphie was there in case the reform-minded foreman “needed to be physically assaulted,” the Laborers International Union of North America charged after taking over the corrupt local last December.
