"To the graphic nature of this king pins crimes listener discretion is advised. This episode includes discussions of murder and assault that some people may find offensive. We advise extreme caution for children under thirteen. Haji bug show hated helicopters. They flew overhead constantly a never ending reminder of the American invaders. He couldn't even enjoy a cup of tea without it being interrupted by their buzzing he wondered where the choppers were going. This time the. Us military had been daily nuisance in Afghanistan for a decade but lately the foreigners had started targeting bogged chose heroin labs in the mountains. They were blowing them up one by one destroying his equipment and terrorizing his workers. It was costing him a fortune. The noise of the chopper blades was deafening and only kept getting louder. That's when Bob Show realized the helicopters weren't passing by. They were coming for him. I'm Howell argued and I'm Kate Leonard and this is kingpins every week. We journey inside the ranks of Organized Crime Rings From Street gangs to mafiosos to understand how a kingpin or Queen Pin Rises to the top of the underworld and why they fall as we follow the lives of infamous crime bosses will explore how money and power changed them and how it changed the community around them. This episode is about Haji bogged show who ran one of the most prolific drug trafficking rings in the world from the nineteen nineties. Two thousand nine at par cast. We're grateful for you our listeners. You allow us to do what we love. Let us know how we're doing reach out on facebook and Instagram at par cast and twitter at Parkas network? And if you enjoy today's episode the best way to help us is to leave a five star review wherever you're listening. It really does help us. On June twelfth. Two Thousand Twelve seventy year old. Haji bug show stood before a judge in Washington DC. He was a long way from his home in Afghanistan and he might never be going back. Bob Show had just been convicted for drug distribution and narcoterrorism. His lawyers had advised him not to testify at the trial. They didn't want him to incriminate himself but at his sentencing hearing bogged show refused to stay silent. He ranted about the witnesses who had been called to testify against him. They were liars and criminals. According to Bob Show. He called himself an honorable man. A simple merchant like his father and his grandfather before him Cho- may have thought of himself as a merchant but it would be hard to describe his lifestyle as simple by his own admission bog. Joe Owned Property in both Afghanistan and Pakistan more than one person described his home in Afghanistan as a castle with a column lined. Main residence a guesthouse. Electricity and running water luxurious accommodations. Compared to his neighbors most people in bog chose. Providence earned a living by farming raising livestock or trading in lumber bog chose spent his days pudding together. Heroin deals in two thousand six his operation produced and sold over one hundred and twenty thousand kilograms of heroin about twenty percent of the world's total heroin supply that year in a single year bogged show earned two hundred and fifty million dollars making him one of the world's richest people and one of the world's poorest countries. The question is how did he get there? It's a difficult question to answer. Thanks to Afghanistan's chaotic past. Most of bog chose life is a complete mystery until the nineteen nineties when his international heroin operation seemed to emerge from the dust fully formed. But a little bit of history can help us fill in the blanks. Joe was born in nineteen forty two in the Non Gerhard province of eastern Afghanistan later in life bog show earned the title. Haji which is an honorific given to Muslims who have completed the pilgrimage to Mecca when bog show was growing up. Afghanistan was locked in a struggle between urban elites who wanted to modernize the country and rural tribal groups who preferred to keep their traditional ways of life in Nangahar bog. Cho- lived among a fiercely independent tribal community that resisted any intrusion. Bog Show called his people frontier. People the Western press had called the area ungovernable comparing it to the wild west militant groups from al-Qaeda to the Taliban to Aycell have all found refuge. Nangahar is remote mountains and complex cave systems in nineteen forty-five when bog show was just three years. Old Afghantistan banned opium production. As part of the government's modernization efforts after World War. Two new diplomatic relationships were forming around the globe and Afghanistan. DidN'T WANT TO BE LEFT BEHIND. The ban would show the world that Afghanistan was willing to comply with Western norms including drug control regulations but harvesting poppies was a part of daily life. In rural Afghanistan. Peasants made cooking oil from poppy seeds. They burn the flower. Stocks is firewood. They made soap from the Ash and the harvested opium from the flowers for us as a medicine. Banning opium was seen as a tone deaf insult to their traditions. The law was largely ignored as long as the government could point to the opium Ban as a talking point. They didn't bother actually enforcing it. Neighboring countries like Pakistan India and Iran all pass stricter opium bands over the next few decades and they took their regulations seriously as a result opium smuggling out of Afghanistan skyrocketed in the nineteen sixties. By the time bog Joe was in his early twenties. In the mid sixties drug trafficking rings had sprung up all along the border smuggling was so pervasive. It was hardly seen as illegal or immoral years later. After bogged Joe was arrested. His younger brother admitted he was a smuggler. That's true everyone in our area is Boncho came from a relatively well off family. He inherited property from his father. Who was a wooden merchant and used it to start several businesses gas stations. An electronics store an auto import company. But at some point he turned his focus to drug smuggling perhaps he saw it as a business opportunity to lucrative to pass up. He was right about that. It was a lucrative industry and completely resistant to political turmoil. Things didn't slow down at all when the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in nineteen seventy nine. The Soviet invasion was meant to reinforce Afghanistan's new communist government which had won control in a coup the previous year Afghan rebel fighters who call themselves the mujahideen violently resisted the new communist government and the Soviet Army. The war devastated the country. Soviet troops targeted rural farmers burning fields and destroying irrigation canals but poppies were durable crop. They kept flourishing even in the midst of war so thousands of farmers switch their crop of choice to poppy flowers. Opium production increased exponentially and drug traffickers. Had A rebel army ready and willing to protect them Mujahideen. Commanders forged an alliance with drug traffickers including Haji bog show the invested money and resources into smuggling operations and in return smugglers gave the mujahedeen cut of their profits which they used to fund their fight against the Communists then Mujuhedeen funding source to the United States. Government almost immediately after the Soviets invaded Afghanistan. The C. I. A. began secretly arming and financing the rebel forces in their fight against communism the US was willing to ignore the fact that some of those funds and guns were making their way to drug traders. The increasing flow of drugs was actually a bonus hero and started falling into the hands of the Soviet troops. Soon enough the Soviets were busy shooting up. Instead of spreading the red menace of communism a decade after their invasion the Soviets decided the war was too costly to maintain. They finally withdrew from Afghanistan in nineteen eighty nine but by then an entire drug industry had blossomed from the burnt fields. Relationships had been made trafficking routes had been established and huge opium bazaars had sprung up throughout the country in the early nineteen eighties. One of these opium markets opened in Gani Kill about twenty miles from the city of Jalalabad. It's sprawled across several blocks like a giant flea market with over five hundred dusty shops and booze but instead of selling antiques and goods merchants here sold opium. Throngs of people pushed their way through the bazaar every day among them was Haji bogged show by the end of the Soviet war in nineteen eighty nine bog. Show was nearly fifty years old. And one of Afghanistan's richest drug smugglers. Although he wasn't yet making the nine figure deals he would later be known for some of Bug chose contemporaries were notorious for their decadent lifestyles infamous Afghan kingpin. Haji Khan was known for his extravagant alcohol. Fueled parties a big taboo in a traditionally Muslim country. But bonk showed didn't have that reputation. He was a family man. He had six brothers two wives and sixteen children. He ran his drug operation like any other family. Business is brother. Bandeau oversaw drug labs where chemist manufactured heroin from opium paste. Bog chose son. Soochow Goule handled the money and recordkeeping bogged show employed about two hundred fifty workers. Even if they weren't blood related bog show wanted them all to feel like they were part of the family. He kept them close. Both emotionally and physically. Most of his servants lived full time on his family's compound bog. Joe Even built a house right next to his own for his top chemist farm on Shah bog chose favorite servant. Cari later said I was not his real son but when it came to food clothes and other things I was treated the same. As his son's bag show was a hands on manager he visited bazaars personally to ensure the opium he purchased was top quality. He then sent the opium to his drug labs which were nestled high in the mountains of Nangarhar thousands of feet above ground level once the chemist extracted heroin from the opium. The drugs were brought to bog chose compound where bog show directed his workers to wrap it in. Plastic stamped with bog chose signature seal to his clients. That seal meant that they were getting the best. Most of the heroin was loaded into trucks and smuggled into Pakistan bog show regularly met with Afghan police and Border Patrol officials for a price. He could make sure that none of his couriers ever ran into any trouble as they moved. Caravans of heroin across Afghanistan's route a one for smaller orders. Bod Show had an even more careful strategy. The couriers wouldn't eat for days. Before their task. Their work required empty stomachs. The heroine was put into capsules and when the time came they swallowed them washing them down with glasses of milk in the early nineteen nineties by. Chou built a second home base in Pakistan. He had dual citizenship which wasn't uncommon. The line between the countries was seen as arbitrary among the tribal communities who traded freely and spoke a common language this second home by Joe and his family a place to escape the new wave of violence and disorder. That was already sweeping across Afghanistan.

The cops so sunny bargar had an idea that would eventually become a hells angels tradition the Labor Day. Weekend RUN OUTLAW. Motorcycle clubs from all over the state would unite in Porterville California a medium sized town halfway between Fresno and Bakersfield there was no Setai Tin Ary. Just a plan to drink smoke weed and get up to whatever. Mischief found them. Sunny Bargar led his Oakland. Hells angels into Porterville to rendezvous with four other leading clubs the stray Satan's the galloping goose's the Coleman sheriffs and the cavaliers in all there were about two hundred bikers invading a town of about nine thousand people. At first everything went according to plan with bikers from different clubs bonding over drugs and women then an Oakland Angel Named Charlie. Magoo was having a drink in a bar minding his own business when an old townie through a beer in his face as soon as Magoo leapt to his feet. The old townie realized he'd made a grave error. There was no way he could take this guy in a fight. The townie bumbled an apology but it was too little too late. Magoo punched him in the face. The old man stumbled so Magoo punched him a second time. Then a third. The old man collapsed on the floor. Knock out but instead of settling things the townie went home grabbed. A gun came back and pointed it at Magoo. This was his town. These angels needed to go Vista Magoo had backup a group of fellow. Angels grabbed townies gun and turned it back around on him. They all took turns beating him until he had to be sent to the hospital. Meanwhile sunny was presiding over a Bachan. All that had taken over the Porterville main drag motorcycles were racing each other down the street the bikers girlfriends and female hangers on. Were having wet. T shirt contests. Everyone was drunk high or both. The angels stopped any vehicles passing through town and forced open. Their car does if they were young women in the car. They attempted to pull them out so they could join the party whether they wanted to on not not. Everyone was thrilled namely the Porterville. Chief of police. He worried he was losing control of the situation so he called out to other counties for backup by nine thirty PM over two hundred and fifty cops rolled into downtown to stop the madness. Their first move was to set up a blockade hoping to direct the bikers. Down One road out of town once was set the chief got on the Bullhorn and announce the bike has had five minutes to clear out. Meanwhile fire trucks spreads soapy water down the main streets making it impossible to race they turn their hoses on bikers. Knocking them off their harleys. Local teens even got into the action climbing to the tops of buildings and throwing bricks down onto the street faced with an army of guns hoses and bricks. The bikers had no choice but to leave town. Sunny led his bikers to the parking lot of Sports Center. A few miles outside of town to assess the situation as they counted their ranks. They realized they were missing for members who had been knocked off their bikes and arrested. Some of the other clubs wanted to give up and peel out. They trusted that lost members to bail themselves out of jail and find their way home but sunny refused to leave without all of his Oakland. Hells Angels Brothers. So at two thirty. Am they turned their bikes around and headed? Back to PORTERVILLE SEVILLE COPS had lined up squad cars to block the bridge leading into town and they were prepared to wait as long as it took for the hells angels to leave town for Good. Sunny wasn't intimidated. By the show of force. He ordered his bikers to line up in a counter blockade across the other half of the bridge. If the cops wouldn't let people into town. Then the hells angels wouldn't let anyone leave either. It was a standoff. Eventually a highway patrol officer approached sunny to try and broker peace sunny told the officer he just wanted his men back and would gladly pay the twenty five dollars for their bail. The officer took them to the portable chief of police. But the chief didn't think twenty five dollars was enough his counter-offer fifty thousand dollars. Sunny exploded in anger. He was trying to play by the rules. And these cops were trying to take advantage of him. Sensing a confrontation. The highway patrol officer scrambled to get the chief to agree to a low a bail sunny and the chief agreed to fifty dollars. And the Hells Angels. Pass the hat to raise the money. It seemed like a fair resolution. Yet by the time sunny and the bikers finally left town. They found another row of cops waiting for them. Ready to pull over any angel. Whose bike wasn't up to code and as a group devoted to customizing their rides. This was damn near all of them. This was the last Straw for Sonny. They were done being stopped by the cops. He ordered his men to outrun the police and they did in just one night sonny. Berger proved himself the undisputed leader of the hells angels and the baddest of all the outlaw bikers in California.

Kingpins Rewind: Diamond Jim Pt. 1: Vincenzo Colosimo

"Jim knew the stakes from the moment. Bath House. John Inky Dank had called. They had put their faith in him giving him an opportunity to be more than just a two bit pimp and now he had to show them that they hadn't made a mistake. He thought the local politicians had liked him because he was tactful and quick thinking the kind of guy who could make sure his people voted the right way but now jim saw things for what they were more than anything the Alderman's respected him for this his willingness to get his hands dirty to do what needed to be done. That was what made big Jim Different. Jim had been trusted to collect protection vs from the city's illegal brothels the price of protection had gone up and some people weren't happy about it. Particularly Georgie the meanest Madam in town. Jim didn't feel guilty about beating her. Perhaps the brass knuckles were a bit much but he had to send a message to every barmaid and madame around big Jim Cosimo had arrived and he had no intention of leaving. I'm how hard it and I'm kate. Leonard and this is King Pins on the PODCAST network every week. We journey inside the ranks of Organized Crime Rings From Street gangs to mafiosos to understand how a kingpin or Queen Pin Rises to the top of the underworld and why they fall as we follow the lives of infamous crime bosses will explore how money and power change them and how it changed the community around them. This is our first episode on Jim. Cosimo one of America's first modern kingpins. This week we'll be exploring his rise from indigent immigrant to crime. Lord of Chicago's Red Light District. Next week we'll look at his fall from grace arrest and the lasting legacy of his empire. You can listen to. All of Park has shows wherever you listen to podcasts. And if you enjoy the show one of the best ways to help us to leave a five star review now let's dive into the life of Chicago's first notorious Vice Lord. Big Jim Cosimo. Jim COSIMO was a self made man. He had come from nothing and yet had risen to become. Chicago's most feared and respected crime. Lord everybody knew Damon Jim and not just for his jewelry and that flashy three piece suit. He always wore for every moment. Jim had spent as a beggar peddling newspapers on the street corner. He intended to more than make up for it now that he had money in his pocket. Jen Colosio wasn't a pimp. He may have begun his criminal career selling sex on the Chicago streets but he had worked long and hard to become something much more than that by nineteen fourteen. Jim just turned thirty six. He already controlled be directly or indirectly more than one hundred businesses in. Chicago's first ward the Red Light district. He owned gambling joints and opium parlors billiards halls and saloons. Some even whispered that he sold Italian national lottery tickets and ran an underground wine business. Jim was in the business of sin and business was booming estimates at the time had him clearing well over half a million a year which in today's dollars would equate to roughly twelve and a half million. Jim Rarely traveled anywhere. If not by uniform chauffeur his elegant jewelry it led many to start calling him. Diamond Jim a name. He more than willingly accepted. He had a reputation now and it was one. He looked forward to living up. Two years. Spent living in luxury. Had led jim to develop an affinity for the fine arts. One art in particular stood out as his favourite the opera. He came to every show sometimes buying up as many as thirty seats. He always brought an entourage. Sometimes it was just a few of his men and their wives other nights. It was the men and their girlfriends after every show. Jim was welcomed backstage. Every member of the Chicago. Opera Company recognized him. He invited the singers. And the Maestro over to his restaurant call a simos cafe. He knew they would come. They always did after the show. Jim Returned to the restaurant and poured himself a drink since its opening in nineteen. Ten COSIMO's cafe had quickly become one of Chicago's hottest nightspots politicians celebrities and wise guys alike all gathered there each night to enjoy the old school Italian cooking and lively entertainment but it was the after dinner activities that truly endeared cosimo's cafe to the Chicago elites gambling joints were dime a dozen but where else but coliseum ohs could an intrepid diner go upstairs and gamble until the wee hours of the morning with hardened criminals state senators and foreign actresses alike. One night at cosimo's cafe sometimes bag jim more than a week's worth of his brothels receipts and Jim knew he was really selling the same thing at either venue not just food or sex. He was selling something far. More important. An experience Jim saw little distinction between the customers at his brothels. And those who pulled cigars and gambled away thousands at his restaurant as far as he was concerned. The only real difference between the two was that you never had to pretend you cared whether the brothel patrons had enjoyed themselves and for Jim pretending to care was the worst part he had lived his life without conscience never stopping to consider who he was hurting along his way. This way of living had done him. Well it had been the factor that allowed him to grow from nothing into the Titan. He had become the story of Jim. Cosimo begins in colostomy a small mountainous town in southern Italy with the birth of a child. By the name of Vincenzo. By the time Vincenzo Cosimo was born on February sixteenth. Eighteen seventy eight. The economy in southern Italy had taken a turn for the worse with jobs. Few and far between men of working age. Were already starting to ship off to the United States in hopes of finding their fortune but leaving colostomy was hardly an option for Vincenzo. Father Luigi who had grown up in the tiny mountain town Luigi Zone father remained. The area's most wealthy landowner. He would raise his family here. No matter how difficult it may be. Unfortunately those plans were dashed by the tragic passing of Luigi Wife Vincenzo. Mother JUST SUBPOENA. Luigi was now a widower with four children to take care of and with his own job prospects dim at best amid the stalling economy. He made a decision that would change the course of history in eighteen. Ninety one Luigi send his youngest son Vincenzo off to America. He was only twelve years old with a bright future ahead of him. Luigi hoped the boy would become wealthy enough to support the rest of the colosseum. Oh clan three long weeks after departing from Naples Vincenzo and his twenty one year old half brother. Antonio arrived by steamship into New York Harbor. The pair hardly had any time to enjoy the New York skyline before they were put on a train to Chicago where Luigi had made arrangements to have the boys room in the city's ever-growing Italian neighborhood Antonio was ready to go home before the pair had even arrived he'd been tasked with leading the youngster across the Atlantic but he had no interest in staying in America as soon as he ensured that Vincenzo had a roof over his head Antonio bid his younger brother. Good bye and luck.

And we're actually holding up pretty well if we can get through the holiday without killing Ling. Anyone as for Paul Marriage as a two thousand nineteen. He's still in prison. He hasn't made any kind of public statement endure appearance. Perhaps he's also undergone treatment and begun the journey toward healing. But there's no way we can know for sure. One thing we can say is that Paul Evidently succeeded in tearing his family apart in some profound ways the violence and the subsequent lawsuits seemed to have ensured that anger and grief would outweigh the love that once bound them altogether. We can't say for sure but it's doubtful that they get together for Thanksgiving dinners anymore. Thanks for listening to the dark side side of next week.
