FOLKLORE: At the moment of their arrest on November 5, Lo Piccolo's son Sandro shouted out to his father: "I love you, papá . I love you papá!" This kind of public family drama no doubt echoed some of the dialogue from the HBO series The Sopranos. But the intrigue increased a few days later when police confirmed that they had found a one-page document they believe the Palermo boss had written for would-be mobsters to avoid trouble. Among the so-called Ten Commandments: Do not covet the wife of your fellow mobster; and do not steal from other Mafiosi. Not on the list: "Thou Shall Not Kill".
UGLY TRUTH: The Lo Piccolos are both convicted murderers. Police believe in the months before their arrest, the pair were successfully consolidating their power in and around the Sicilian capital, both by intimidation and by stepping up collaboration with American mobsters in the drug trafficking business.
