Arrow The Executioner

The meeting of The Commission/Season 5 Episode 8 ..
Vincent Mangano (March 28, 1888 – April 19, 1951), born Vincenzo Giovanni Mangano, also known as "The Executioner" as he was named in a Brooklyn newspaper, was the head of the then Mangano crime family from 1931 to 1951. His brother Philip Mangano was his right-hand man and de facto, or substituto, underboss of the crime family which eventually became the Gambino crime family.. He is also a distant paternal relative of current Genovese crime family Underboss Venero Mangano and a suspected relative of Lawrence Mangano...

Mangano was an older mafioso who was very much steeped in the Old World ideals of "honor," "tradition," "respect" and "dignity." While he was still in many ways a Mustache Pete, he was more forward-looking than Maranzano and Joe Masseria, and was thus allowed to stay in power after Luciano and the other "Young Turks" eliminated Maranzano..Other prominent members during Mangano's time were Joseph "Piney" Armone, future underboss Aniello "Neil" Dellacroce, and future bosses Carlo Gambino and Paul Castellano..Although it took 20 years of working together for matters to come to a head, Mangano eventually met his end at the hands of Anastasia, or so it is believed.. now you know what I liked most was the hunt, the challenge of what the thing was.. The killing for me was secondary.. I got no rise as such out of it..for the most part...
