24 Hours Of Crime: The Ron Previte Mob Story

I just watched an interesting program on youtube.com about Ron Previte, known by the South Philly Cosa Nostra organized crime family as "Big Ron."

After testifying against the mob guys for the FBI, Previte was called the "Fat Rat."

Previte, a former corrupt Philly cop turned mob member turned FBI informant, brought down three Philly mob bosses. Previte makes no bones about being a crook. Unapologetically, he said his life was "24 hours of crime."
