Can Atletico Madrid survive a mass exodus this summer?

Can Atletico Madrid survive a mass exodus this summer? MADRID - There isn't much around the Wanda Metropolitano. Skeletons of buildings that are under construction loom near the stadium, but there are no workers to be seen. The Wanda's lavish west exterior overlooks a wide plot of dusty soil. The huge, modern metro station that services the area is deserted at 2:30 p.m. Few taxis venture to this part of town. Atletico Madrid's actual home, though, is supposed to be a statement; a declaration that their spot at Europe's top table is assured following an unbroken run of six Champions League campaigns - two of which ended in finals.

Hamilton mobster Pasquale (Pat) Musitano is expected to survive, after being shot multiple times outside his lawyer’s office in Mississauga last week.

The 51-year-old is improving, Peel police Const. Bancroft Wright said Wednesday morning.

“He’s no longer considered to be in life-threatening condition,” Wright said.

The shooting is considered attempted murder and is being investigated by Peel’s criminal investigations bureau. While it appears Musitano will survive, it’s unclear what lasting damage the shooting will cause.

How a wiretap recorded a conversation about getting rid of Pat Musitano

The 51-year-old was shot as many as four times, including to the head, around 7 a.m. April 25 outside the office of lawyer Joseph Irving at 120 Matheson Blvd. E., near Whittle Rd. Irving had been acting for Musitano in connection with a paving and construction company allegedly embroiled in a multimillion-dollar scam.

It is unclear if the location at his lawyer’s office, and Musitano’s ties with Havana Group Supplies, has any connection to the shooting.

Pat Musitano is the reputed boss of the Musitano crime family — one of the original traditional organized crime groups that vied for power in Hamilton in the 1960s. Pat Musitano took control when his father, Dominic Musitano, died in 1995.

Here’s how a wiretap recorded a conversation about getting rid of Pat Musitano

Here’s how a wiretap recorded a conversation about getting rid of Pat Musitano HAMILTON—Someone wants Pasquale (Pat) Musitano dead — that much is clear. But why was the 51-year-old Hamilton mob boss, who remains in hospital with “life-threatening” injuries, shot outside his Mississauga lawyer’s office early Thursday morning? The targeted shooting comes amid a string of Mafia hits, so perhaps the biggest question is: why now? Wiretap conversations recorded as part of the prosecution against Domenico (Dom) and Giuseppe (Joe) Violi revealing the plan to target the Musitano boss stretch back at least to the fall of 2017, months after the May 2 shooting death of Pat’s younger brother, Angelo (Ang) Musitano, in Waterdown.

Weeks after Angelo Musitano was killed, Pat Musitano 's home on St. Clair Boulevard in Hamilton was also shot up. Neighbours walked their dogs past the Other recent mob -related deaths in Hamilton include Cece Luppino, the son of mobster Rocco Luppino, and Albert Iavarone, who police say had

The shooting comes amid a resurgence in mafia violence in Hamilton and surrounding communities in recent years, including the May 2, 2017 shooting death of Pat’s younger brother, Angelo (Ang) Musitano, in Waterdown.

Pat Musitano’s own St. Clair Blvd. home was sprayed with bullets weeks later in what was widely seen as a warning.

Since then two other men whose families have mob ties have been gunned down in Hamilton — Albert Iavarone and Cece Luppino.

And two brothers from the only other long-standing traditional organized crime family in Hamilton — Domenico (Dom) and Giuseppe (Joe) Violi — are in prison serving sentences for drug trafficking.

The Spectator reported last week that wiretap conversations captured in September 2017 as part of the Violi brother case revealed a conversation about taking out Pat Musitano.

With all the ongoing violence and court cases, it’s difficult to understand who still holds power within Hamilton’s criminal underworld.

Police sting revealed plans for gangland hits on Musitano family

Police sting revealed plans for gangland hits on Musitano family Just months after Angelo Musitano was gunned down in his driveway, a fellow convicted mobster was caught on tape musing that Musitano’s brother, Pat, would be next. He was right. Pat Musitano was shot several times in front of his lawyer's office in Mississauga late last week. Peel Regional Police confirmed Monday morning that the 51-year-old is still alive in a Toronto-area hospital and in critical condition.

Pasquale ( Pat ) Musitano of Hamilton , Ont. was shot multiple times after leaving the office of his lawyer about 7 a.m. on Thursday, according to The Hamilton Spectator. Peel police said Friday morning that a shooting victim is still in “life-threatening condition” but did not confirm his identity.

With the attempt on Pat Musitano’s life, those still tied to the family now face the “ultimate test of allegiance,” said Stephen Metelsky, a criminology professor at Mohawk College who spent 21 years with Halton police, including specializing in organized crime.

He was involved in the early days of Project Otremens — the case against the Violi brothers in which a paid police agent managed to infiltrate the mob in New York City. Metelsky retired before the case’s conclusion and now writes about organized crime on underworldstories.com.

He says he can count maybe a handful of known supporters close the Musitanos and questions what they are doing now.

“There is shelf life in the underworld, (mobsters) have an expiration date,” he said. “Usually in by the gun, out by the gun.”

So who is left? While there are Musitano family members, few are known for being involved in the family business and many are dead.

The Mississauga shooting came just a day after the funeral for Pat’s uncle Tony Musitano — a former mobster who was said to still command respect. Pat was not seen at his uncle’s funeral.

City of Hamilton to investigate how former white-supremacist leader got hired.
Hamilton's first black councillor, Matthew Green, says he felt betrayed and threatened by the city's hiring of former Heritage Front leader Marc Lemire. Green and other community members have raised privacy and safety concerns about Lemire working in IT, and want to know how much the city knew about his past when it hired him. In an email to CBC News, Lemire said he rejects the Heritage Front and he's neither a white supremacist nor a neo-Nazi. There has been no public allegation of wrongdoing by Lemire in his work for the city.
