Bonanno's Crime Family Information

How it all started

The Bonanno crime family is one of the Five Families that dominates organized crime activities in New York City, United States, within the nationwide criminal phenomenon known as the Mafia.
Founded and named after Joseph Bonanno, the Bonanno family was the first of the New York families to be kicked off the Commission (a council of the bosses that helps to maintain order in the Mafia), due to allegations that the family was actively dealing heroin and the inner family fighting for control of the leadership. Later, the family faced shaky leadership, with acting boss Carmine Galante being murdered in 1979 on the order of imprisoned boss Philip Rastelli, as well as two major setbacks: in 1981, they learned that an FBI agent calling himself Donnie Brasco had infiltrated their ranks; in 1995, Vito "The Don" Bonventre took over the Vincent Syndicate and made it a new set of the Bonanno Family in Los Santos.

The Bonanno' Crime Family Origin

The origins of the Bonanno crime family can be traced back to the early 1880s in the town of Castellammare del Golfo located in the Province of Trapani, Sicily. During the 1900s, top members of the Bonanno, Bonventre, and Magaddino Mafia families relocated to New York, forming the Castellammarese clan due to their rivalry with Felice Buccellato, the boss of the Buccellato Mafia clan. The newly arriving Bonanno, Bonventre and Magaddino Mafia members began establishing dominance and control in the Castellammarese community of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. While operating in Brooklyn, the Castellammarese leaders were able to preserve the criminal organization's future.

The war they fought

In 1994, violence broke out between the two rival Los Santos Mafia factions and soon developed into a full out war known as the Chinese War. The conflict started when members of the Triad clan began hijacking truckloads of illegal liquor that belonged to Vito "The Don" Bonventre. The Triad clan was based in Commerce, Los Santos and led by Nicola "Cola" Schiro who tried to work with Bonventre. But one of the group's leaders Salvatore Maranzano wanted to take control over Los Santos's underworld. Bonventre took control of the Triad clan continuing a bloody Mafia War.
The Triad faction was more organized and unified than Bonanno' Crime Family. Bonventre's allies were Buffalo family Boss Stefano Magaddino, Las Venturas family Boss Gaspar Milazzo and Philadelphia family Boss Salvatore Sabella, all Triads. Bonventre's faction included mobsters Joseph Bonanno, Carmine Galante, and Gaspar DiGregorio. Bonventre was also close to Joseph Profaci future boss of the New York Profaci family. Finally, Bonventre established a secret alliance with Bronx Reina family Boss Gaetano Reina, a nominal Bonventre ally.
After Reina's murder on February 26, 1994, members of the Bonventre faction began to defect to the Triads. By 1995, momentum had shifted to Triad's faction. That spring, a group of younger mafiosi from both camps, known as the "Young Turks", decided to switch to Bonventre and end the war. This group included future mob bosses Charles "Lucky" Luciano, Vito Genovese, Frank Costello, Reina family Boss Tommy Gagliano, and Tommy Lucchese. As leader of the Young Turks, Luciano concluded a secret deal with Bonventre and promised to kill the Triad boss. On April 15, 1995 The traid Don was murdered ending the long Chinese War.

Their working area's and their way of working

After the former Don, Vincent, got kidnapped and went missing Vito "The Don" Bonventre took over the hierarchy and their leader spot. He made changes including the name of the crime syndicate, he called it after his former boss: Bonanno. Vito had the strings to claim respect on the streets, to make business, et cetera. He had the mind, the ideas and the men to succeed. They kidnapped, murdered, extorted and they bribed a lot of gang members. Including the Police. They made a reputation on the streets with accepting assassinations and tasks/jobs. Their name on the streets was: "The silent killers". Vito "The Don" Bonventre bought a factory in Las Venturas to import and export his guns, drugs and some legal stuff. He made the money legal by buying several shops and buildings around Los Santos, Alahambra's, 24/7 Unity Shop, O'Donut, etcetera..
