Joseph (Joey "The Clown") Lombardo is ANYTHING but a clown in real life - Part 2

BEFORE WATCHING THIS WATCH PART 1 HERE:    • Joseph (Joey "The Clown") Lombardo is...  


Lombardo's illicit career was rooted in the 1950's when he found work as a thug for West Side gangsters. At that time, the Chicago Outfit was thriving and a large cast of characters dominated the organized crime world focusing on prostitution, gambling, loansharking, jewel heists, labor racketeering and the various violent methods of controlling those who executed orders for street crews. On April 25, 2005, Lombardo, along with 13 other defendants was indicted as part of the federal government's Operation Family Secrets investigation, which lifted the veil on 18 killings since the 1970s that federal investigators had attributed to the Outfit. Lombardo was indicted for his role in at least one murder, as well as for running a racket based on illegal gambling, loan sharking and murder. On September 10, 2007, Lombardo was convicted of racketeering, extortion, loan sharking and murder.[23] On September 27, 2007, the same jury found Lombardo guilty of the 1974 Seifert murder.[24] On February 2, 2009, Zagel sentenced Lombardo, seated in a wheelchair, to life in prison for the convictions. Lombardo takes a litany of mob secrets to his grave. He never admitted anything, never showed any remorse for a life of crime and to his last breath, fulfilled the Outfit's blood oath of silence known as "omerta."
