A Good Mobster

 Grave robbers and vandalizers rank quite low on the scale of criminals.  As the late Justice Michael Musmanno noted, in Kotal v. Goldberg, 375 Pa. 397, 405, 100 A.2d 630, 634 (1953):

" Those who have no respect for the dead can have but little appreciation of the dignity of man, either living or dead."

There are many who have quipped that a good Mafia mobster is a dead one.  Perhaps such a good mobster is exemplified by the late Fat Tony Salerno, former front boss of the Genovese crime family.

Fat Tony, though dead more than 20 years, helped the New York City Police Department get a confession -- and further cooperation -- from grave robber and vandal Louis Peduto.
