No Surrender MC Gang

In Part 2, David Amoruso continues the story of Dutch master criminal Willem Holleeder and how he became the leader of a major Dutch motorcycle gang called the No Surrender. and eventually challenged the American based Hells Angels. Along the way, we learn that Willem Holleeder becomes an extortionist of wealthy European real estate investors. Holleeder went into business with a real estate businessman named Willem Endstra and involved him in money laundering. Holleeder had a dispute with Endstra and he became an informant about Holleeder and his criminal activities. Holleeder has Endstra and another partner murdered while they are on holiday in Thailand.

By 2006, Dutch police have charged Holleeder with murder and extortion and his trial was dubbed the trial of the century. Holleeder’s lawyer, Bram Moszkowicz, argued that media pronunciations on Holleeder as one of the “topcriminelen” had prejudiced the case against him.

Gangland Wire</a

I was introduced to some new technology recently. A representative from www.bublup.com   and asked if I would create a Bublup roll titled the Kansas City Crime Family. Since then I have created a few more Bublup Rolls. In each “Roll” I insert either a link to a YouTube video, a Podcast episode, a website, an image or a video. Each roll contains a curated list of links for the subject. Since that time. I created a Chicago Outfit Roll, A Las Vegas Mob roll, a Top 10 Mafia Podcast roll, and a Favorite True Crime Podcats roll.

Below are links to my Bublup Rolls.

When researching organized crime murders, sometimes there are clues that tip us off to what may have really happened. We recently discussed the Wild Bunch, a crew of Chicago Outfit hitmen in the 1970s, and that touched back to an earlier series on Wild Bunch member and notorious killer Harry “The Hook” Aleman. Let’s look at one murder attributed to him.

Nick “Keggie” Galanos was a bookmaker who was shot nine times in the head in his basement on August 30, 1975 with a .45 caliber pistol. Outfit bosses likely ordered this hit because Galanos was taking bets in Forest Park, where the bosses lived—that was a big no-no. The Chicago Crime Commission puts this killing to Harry Aleman, but there’s a good chance he had help…

In 1975, there were really only two .45s on the market, the M1911 holding of 7+1 rounds, or the M1917 revolver, holding six rounds. Both were concealable, easily available, and fairly cheap, because of surplus from WW2. Lots of crimes throughout the 50s-70s committed with .45. After the 80s, there were 9mm.

Galanos was shot nine times in his basement, and the two .45s only hold eight and six rounds each, so there’s a good chance there was more than one gun…unless the shooter emptied the pistol into Galanos’ head, reloaded, then shot some more into his body on the ground. The killer could have used a MAC-10, they were available, but the problem is, they fire 1090 rounds per minute and are hard to control…there would be bullets everywhere.

So it probably wasn’t a MAC-10 sub-machine gun, and the killer probably didn’t take time to reload a random number of bullets just to keep shooting into a dead body. We know the Wild Bunch worked in twos or threes, so if we know all of that, it’s a good guess that if Harry killed Nick Galanos, he didn’t do it alone.

The mob has had a lot of practice keeping things hidden. Even when guys testify, they can’t always be trusted to tell the whole truth. We should try to use all of the details we can. This is just a theory though, perhaps Gangland Wiretappers have others?

I was invited to do a Facebook Live interview with KC Star reporter, Ian Cummings. This is called the Beer Hour and we met at the craft beer joint called the Kansas City Bier Company. I talk about my career in the KCPD Intelligence Unit working with the FBI to investigate the “River Quay Mob War” and the mob war between the Nick Civella faction and the Spero brothers. I also tell Ian how in the investigation of these mob activities we discovered the existence of Mafia skimming from Las Vegas casinos as depicted in the well known DeNiro film, Casino.

I tell how I got started with filming documentaries on antebellum Civil War life in Missouri and the Western Underground Railroad along the Missouri/Kansas border.

Beer Hour with KC mob expert Gary Jenkins

Tune in to Beer Hour as guest host Ian Cummings chats with former Kansas City police detective and local mob expert Gary Jenkins, live from Kansas City Bier Company.
