John Gotti was the last of the classic gangsters, the “Boss of Bosses” of New York City’s five Mafia families. Unlike other Mafia chiefs, Gotti broke all the rules by reveling in the spotlight and capturing the public’s admiration. But behind the scenes, he ran a multi-million dollar illegal operation that thrived on prostitution, extortion, gambling, theft and drugs. He also left a trail of dead bodies of those that had dared cross him. Seemingly untouchable, the so-called “Teflon Don” would eventually be crossed by one of his own, an unprecedented betrayal that would lead to the demise of the Mafia Boss and the collapse of the Mafia itself.

A badge tarnished by greed, power and murder, and the distinction as the most corrupt cops in the history of the New York Police Department, would ultimately be their legacy.
