SORT BY Relevancy
Nothing like it before. Nothing like it since. Murder Inc. was the most unusual, brutal and extensive collection of characters the American underworld had ever produced. Culled primarily from Brooklyn's Brownsville and Ocean Hill sections, these official on-call killers of New York's larger crime Syndicate were a unified force of Jewish and Italian gangsters that treated murder as an art form for an entire decade.
They were called mobsters, thugs, hoods and racketeers, but at the very core... they were assassins. When gangland kingpins, such as Louis "Lepke" Buchalter, Charles "Lucky" Luciano and Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel, needed a contract fulfilled - the "Combination" boys would eagerly take to task the enforcement duties, which included methods ranging from gunfire to fire axes, incineration to icepicks.
These are the mysteries, the sordid stories, the character profiles, alluring and lesser known tales of the Mob's Most Deadly Hit Squad. Meet the killers, the victims, the bosses, the lovers, the deceivers and the gangbusters that made up a nationally-reaching ensemble cast rivaling anything organized crime or law enforcement had ever imagined to that point in time. Discover the nuances, the attitudes, the motivations, the ambitions and, thanks to little honor among thieves, the scathing revelations that lead to an inevitable downfall.

Helenor bye Murder On The Nhs
Dr. Rima Interviews the Byes:
The Natural Solutions Foundation produced the above-linked exclusive one-hour interview with Derek and Joan Bye, whose daughter Helenor died a totally preventable, slow and agonizing death at age twelve. Helenor died in a National Health Service (government) hospital in Wales after being illegally enrolled in a drug trial without parental knowledge or consent.
Helenor, an honoured student, was murdered by a combination of cover-up and lies in 1977. The cover-up of her murder and that of countless others like her, continues to this day.
What you are about to read is disturbing. What is even more disturbing is that the situation did not end with the horrifying manner in which Helenor died: the abuse she suffered both before and after her unnecessary death continues today against the most vulnerable of us: our children and our elderly.

Until Vito Rizzuto went to prison in 2006 for his role in a decades-old Brooklyn triple murder, he ruled the Port of Montreal, the northern gateway to the major American drug markets. A master diplomat, he won the respect of rival mafia clans, bikers and street gangs, and criminal business thrived on his turf. His family prospered and his empire grew--until one of North America's true Teflon dons finally lost his veneer. As he watched helplessly from his Colorado prison, the murders of his son and father made international headlines; the killings of his lieutenants and friends filled the pages of Canadian news; and the influence of the 'Ndrangheta, the Calabrian Mafia, spread across Montreal faster than the blood of Rizzuto's crime family. In 2012, Vito Rizzuto emerged from prison, a 66-year-old man who could carefully rebuild his criminal empire or seek bloody revenge and damn the consequences. From the events leading to his imprisonment to his shocking death in December 2013, Business or Blood is the final chapter of Vito's story.

This episode of Pneumatikos will explore the power of the Word of God to renew and revitalize the soul that as been undone by acts of attempted or completed soul murder. Soul murder is the act of the powerful shamelessly abusing the powerless. Acts of soul murder are usually hidden in our culture, but our culture is disintegrating because it refuses to repent of its sins. In fact, our culture defends its sins. The Word of God is real and he rescues those who call upon his name. Those who bear the wounds left by soul murder may find healing in Jesus.
