Wars, Conflicts + Vendetta's / Green Ones - Russo / Santino [St. Louis].



Wars, Conflicts + Vendetta’s  : - “Green Ones” – Russo /Santino  factions  [St. Louis].

Although there was “Mafia” activity in St. Louis as early as the 1890’s, there was no dominant organized Family there until the 1930’s.  By the prohibition era, the leading gangs were the non-Italian Egan’s Rats and Hogan groups.  Meanwhile in the Italian districts, various Sicilian factions fought for supremacy during the 1920’s. 
By the mid-1920’s a group called the “Green Ones”, from the towns in Palermo Province, came to dominance.  This group was led by the Giannola brothers, Vito + John, and their enforcer Alfonso Palazzolo.  They had gained this position by defeating, and forcing out of town, the previous dominant faction.  The Green Ones had allies in Springfield, and the Capone gang in Chicago.
They were in an uneasy alliance with a faction from Agrigento Province, under Pasquale Santino.  Santino bristled under the Green Ones dominance, but did not have the strength to compete with them.
The other emerging faction were the American born second generation local youths, led by the Russo brothers Willie, Anthony + James.  This group included future Mafiosi like the Licavoli, Bommarito and Giammanco families.  The Russo family was related by marriage to the influential Aiello family of Chicago, Springfield and Milwaukee.  At this time the members were not “made” Mafiosi, but associates.
The Green Ones reputation had been damaged by losing a conflict with the multi-ethnic Cuckoo gang in 1925-26.  This encouraged both the Santino + Russo factions to become more assertive.  To add to this already explosive situation, was the fact that the Russo and Giannola families supported opposing sides in Chicago’s ongoing gang war.  The catalyst for the conflict was a double-cross perpetrated by Alfonso Palazzolo on his personal enemy Anthony Russo.

1927
9th August  : - Anthony Russo + Vincent Spicuzza killed in Chicago / suspects : -  Palazzolo, Frank Agrusa, Matt Manzella, Giuseppe Vitale + Vito Impastato.

24th August  : - Benny Giammanco [Russo faction] killed.

27th August  : - Vincenzo Dattilo [Russo faction] killed.

12th November  : - Charles Casamento [Green Ones] killed.

15th November  : - Benedetto Amato [Green Ones] killed  /  suspect  : - Dominic Emma + Joseph Evola [Santino faction].

17th November  : - Pasquale Santino killed.

6th December  : - Joseph Lopiparo [Santino faction / father of Anthony] wounded.

28th December  : - Vito Giannola killed  /  suspects  : - Michael Dattilo + Jack Griffen [Russo faction].

Same day  : - Jack Griffen [Russo faction] wounded.

1928
19th January  : - Alliance between Russo and Santino factions dissolves into violence with an attack on the Santino faction by the Russo gang.
18th February  : - Thomas Cammarata [Russo faction] wounded.

April  : - Peace meeting in NYC attended by Frank Agrusa [Green Ones] and Willie Russo agrees to end conflict. 
The Russo gang dissolved after losing another conflict, against the Cuckoo gang, and the surviving brothers left St. Louis.  The Licavoli and Bommarito families moved to Detroit.  Ralph Caleca headed the surviving members, and eventually became a leader of the St. Louis Family.
The Santino faction, now called the Pillow gang, survived under first Charles Fresina, then Thomas Buffa until becoming part of the Family.  Buffa may have been head during the late 1930’s.
The Green Ones, now under Frank Agrusa, also remained an independent group for some time.  At some point around 1933-34 the various factions seem to have come together to form a Family, possibly with Agrusa as head.    Some members of Green Ones relocated to Springfield, and worked under Frank Zito.

Conflicts : - Carlino - Danna [Colorado].

CONFLICT  : - Danna – Carlino  fued  1922-30.
In May 1922 a dispute within the Pueblo Family, led to the murder of Pelligrino Scaglia [AKA Tony Viola].  Scaglia, born 1882, had been involved in an old vendetta from his birthplace of Burgio, Sicily.  He was suspected of killing 3 members of the Cardinelli family in Brooklyn, for which he was arrested in St. Louis in 1911.  He also survived being stabbed, also in St. Louis, in 1910.  Eventually he, and his family, moved to Pueblo and opened a grocery.  Soon he became a member of the local Mafia Family, possibly even heading it.  His relatives included his brother Mariano, the Mulay [Mule] family, and Vincenzo Chiapetta.  He was also known to be allied to the Carlino brothers.
As always with Mafia Families, there was an opposition faction who disputed control with Scaglia’s group.  This faction was originally associated with Domenico Pistone, a previous leader killed in 1918, and included the LaRocca, Danna and Parlapiano families.  Members from both factions were mainly from Agrigento Province, especially the town of Lucca Sicula.
The catalyst for the conflict is unknown, although another Cardinelli [Antonio] had been killed recently in Pueblo.  Nicola Gentile tells us that a man called LaRocca accused the Scaglia’s of unsanctioned killings.  A national meeting was called in NYC to mediate the conflict, which ended in stalemate.  Another meeting in Pittsburgh ended with the expulsion of Mariano Scaglia, and Pellegrino’s father-in-law and nephew, who had fled to Kansas City.

May  1922  : - Pelligrino Scaglia killed in Pueblo, young boy helper also killed.
February  1923  : - John Mulay [Mule], associate of Carlino’s, killed.
June 1923  : - Vincenzo Urso killed, Carl Mulay escaped, [Carlino’s]. / Joseph Piscopo + James Giarratano arrested [Danna’s].
September  1923  : - Carlo Carlino + Domenico Ingo [Carlino’s]killed. / Vito + John Danna arrested and acquitted.
July  1924  : - Joseph Piscopo [Danna’s] killed. Assailant Andrea Lomeli [Carlino hired gunman] killed by James Giarratano.
Summer ?  1924  : - Joseph Spinuzzi [Danna associate] killed.  Frank Lucia arrested + acquitted.
April  1925  : - Frank Lucia [Carlino’s] killed.
