Frank Costello's slots

Published

on



Costello meticulously set about establishing his new slot machine business by obtaining New York City as his exclusive territory from the Mills Novelty Company”
Costello’s operations with a reported 25,000 slots throughout New York City, not to mention operations in Saratoga, New York and New Jersey.
he set up a system to payoff the police and politicians; and
he recruited his own army of collectors, salesman, service crews and even his own police force to track down any machines that were stolen.
Phil “Dandy Phil” Kastel would become his long-time partner in slot machine and gambling racketeering.
The slots were placed in mundane, highly trafficked locations such as bars, drugstores, bus stops and gas stations.
Was able to evade the gambling law by rigging the machines to dispense mints, and even founded the Triangle Mint Company to control the production of the mints.

Mayor Fiorello La Guardia in 1933 ran on an anti-corruption platform and Ending racketeering was high on La Guardia’s list and slot machines were an obvious and publically visible target to unleash his masterfully strategic public relations campaign against the mafia.
Beginning with a public radio address to the city in which he vowed, “Let’s drive the bums out of town,” La Guardia sent police on a “search on destroy mission” against Costello’s slot machines.
Costello obtained an injunction against La Guardia, but the mayor “ignored the order and dispatched special squads of flying police around town to smash the machines.
Fortunately for Costello, Louisiana governor Huey Long saw La Guardia’s actions as an opportunity for his state.
Costello’s own testimony that he moved his operations to Louisiana by the invitation of Long, “intending, as Costello stated, to legalize them and tax them for various State enterprises.”
Long exacted a commission of $20,000 per month in the deal.

Costello claimed that he passed on the management of the slot-machine business in Louisiana to Kastel, a contention the committee found patently false based on legal wire-tapping which “show Costello giving specific orders as to the purchase price and make of machines.”

Lyrics:
[Intro: Zack De La Rocha] Huh
Yeah, we’re comin’ back in with another bombtrack
Think ya know it’s all of that, huh
Ayo, so check this out, yeah

[Chorus: Zack De La Rocha] Know your enemy
Come on

[Verse 1: Zack De La Rocha] Born with insight and a raised fist
A witness to the slit wrist
As we move into ’92
Still in a room without a view
Ya got to know, ya got to know
That when I say go, go, go
Amp up and amplify, defy
I’m a brother with a furious mind
Action must be taken
We don’t need the key, we’ll break in
Something must be done
About vengeance, a badge and a gun
‘Cause I’ll rip the mic, rip the stage, rip the system
I was born to rage against ’em
Fist in ya face in the place and I’ll drop the style clearly
Know your enemy

[Chorus: Zack De La Rocha] Know your enemy
Yeah
Ayo, get with this, ugh

[Verse 2: Zack De La Rocha] Word is born
Fight the war, fuck the norm
Now I got no patience
So sick of complacence
With the D, the E, the F, the I, the A, the N, the C, the E
Mind of a revolutionary, so clear the lane
The finger to the land of the chains
What? The “land of the free”?
Whoever told you that is your enemy
Now something must be done
About vengeance, a badge, and a gun
‘Cause I’ll rip the mic, rip the stage, rip the system
I was born to rage against ’em
Now action must be taken
We don’t need the key, we’ll break in

[Bridge: Maynard James Keenan] I’ve got no patience now
So sick of complacence now
I’ve got no patience now
So sick of complacence now
Sick of, sick of, sick of, sick of you
Time has come to pay
[Chorus: Zack De La Rocha] Know your enemy

[Guitar Solo] [Outro: Zack De La Rocha] Come on
Yes, I know my enemies
They’re the teachers who taught me to fight me
Compromise, conformity
Assimilation, submission
Ignorance, hypocrisy
Brutality, the elite
All of which are American dreams
All of which are American dreams
All of which are American dreams
All of which are American dreams
All of which are American dreams
All of which are American dreams
All of which are American dreams
All of which are American dreams
