So here's an extra large photo of a man linked to murder, bribery, extortion, money laundering, etc, generally linked to evil, killing, bullying etc. If you see him near you, suggest you head off in another direction.
According to the Press, he was convicted in 1999 of being a 'prominent representative' and a former 'man of honour' in the Sicilian Mafia - aka Cosa Nostra - for collecting bribes from construction workers / builders in Trabia near Palermo.
Courts have been told Rancadore has been a leader in a gang that 'spread terror' on Sicily, 'systematically murdering anybody who did not comply with the will of the members of the organisation'.
It is reported Rancadore is now suffering chest pains. If he was in the Mafia, these will presumably have been caused by decisions he took earlier in his life - or caused by others who forced / coerced him to join?
He seems to be operating at present in the spirit of omertà... (literally, 'code of silence'). Within Mafia culture, breaking omertà is punishable by death. Mmm, lovely club rules.
