Angelo Salvatore Ruggiero, Sr. of the Gambino Crime Family
Angelo Salvatore Ruggiero, Sr. was a member of the Gambino crime family and a deferential friend of John Gotti. Under Gotti’s leadership Ruggiero became a Caporegime (Capo) though he became widely seen as an over talkative enforcer type without the astuteness needed for running lucrative rackets. Gotti, by then the most targeted criminal in the country, came to share the assessment amid mounting investigative pressure and costly blunders by the inveterate indiscreet Ruggiero, who had completely fallen from favor by the time of his death. The FBI regarded Ruggiero, whose open defiance of law enforcement extended to swearing at the judge during a hearing, as an unpredictable psychopath not amenable to confrontational tactics.
