Gotti's Ma: Kill My Son Now!
John "Junior" Gotti's mom cut loose with some down and dirty Howard Beach talk at a hearing in Manhattan federal court this morning where her number one son is up for yet another murder conspiracy trial.
"Why don't you just hang him now?" Victoria Gotti yelped from her spot a few rows behind her son at the defense table.
"They're trying to kill him before the trial," she yelled. "These are the good guys? God help us!"
According to The Daily News' Tom Zambito who was in the courtroom, Ma Gotti's outburst came after federal Judge Kevin Castel ruled against her son's request to add a second defense attorney to his team.
The widow of the great Dapper Don, John Gotti Sr., let reporters know how she really felt about the federal prosecutors who are trying for a fourth time to send her boy away for a long stretch. "They fight like little bitches, instead of men," she sniffed after the hearing.
It's not the first time the Gotti mom has blasted loose during a court visit. In February she shocked prosecutors when she showed up in Brooklyn federal court at the murder trial of Gotti pal, Charles Carneglia. While there, she heard John Alite, a turncoat mob witness who also may testify against her son, brag that he was so close to the Gotti clan that he "fooled around on the sneak" with Ma Gotti's daughter, Victoria.
"My daughter wouldn't spit on the best part of him," she told the News' Joanna Malloy. "He's a lying little runt."
Zambito,also reports that Junior, who is being held at Brooklyn's federal detention center while he awaits trial, has shed quite a few pounds. "I'm feeling good now," he told the judge. Image via zazzle.
