Rate this:
Joe Profaci was head of a large empire that centered on olive oil importation. He had briefly become involved in bootlegging in the late 1920s before he was rounded up with other mobsters in a Cleveland hotel in 1928. His Mafia baronage included loan sharking and jukebox rackets. Before the early 1960s the Gallo brothers headed the enforcement wing of Profaci's businesses. Crazy Joe Gallo and his brothers beat jukebox owners into paying tribute to Profaci until the siblings decided to go out on their own around 1961. In the meantime Joe Profaci was targeted by the United States Department of Justice which wanted to take away his citizenship as a prelude to deporting him. Lucky Luciano was a prominent Mafioso who had been deported from the U.S. earlier.--Provided by publisher.
