Retired Intelligence Unit Detective Gary Jenkins tells the Wiretappers about the violent and brutal life of Bonanno Capo Tony Mirra. Tony Mirra comes from a Mafia legacy and rose through the ranks. He was so vicious and a good killer that Carmine “The Cigar” Galante used him to take out enemies. Mirra saw promise in a young newcomer named Donnie Brasco, who claimed to be a good jewel thief. The Feds put Mirra away, and Bonanno soldier Lefty Ruggerio “stole” Brasco (Joe Pistone). When Mirra left prison, he demanded Brasco back like he was a piece of property. They settled the dispute in a proper mafia manner by having a sit-down.
