BuzzFeed Unsolved Network I’ve just subscribed to your channel it’s great show. I don’t believe for one minute the Bee Sedway story because Myer world never of sanctioned a hit on his best friend it was Myer who got him a pass at the Havana conference. I would go along with the Chicago story because Ben refused to give them back the betting wire service he tried to sell it back to them. There’s also been accusations that Mo Daliz (cannot spell surname) had a hand in Bens death because he beat Hill up one to many times, who knows it’s one of many mob hits that has gone down in the annuals of organised crime in America a great 👍 story Stevie

You say the west coast didn’t make anything like the mob on their own... What about the Bloods and the Crips? They’re the same as the mob only predominantly black and the originated in L.A. my guy.

I’m studying to be an fbi detective but I’ve definitely thought of flipping over to be a mobster guy. I know it wouldn’t be immediate but it would be cool. But then I remember that I have a conscious and I definitely don’t like being in trouble so I decided for the law was probably my better option 😂

Crazy how decades later the west would start they own gangs and the rest of the country would hop on the banwagon. The only difference is the law worked with the mob and they extorted us.

So only hit 4 times out if nine shots and it was an expert marksman ?? Well we can throw that theory out.. was only 14 feet away and bugsey was still on couch after he was shot. So whoever it was wasnt a very good shot to miss 5 of 9 from 14 feet away.

Could imagine having a friend like Benny Siegel ? I don't think his associates killed him. When a mob heavy gets killed , I doubt the police worry to much about who did it

There would of have to been two shooters. The rifle used could only carry 8 rounds at a time. With no extended magazines and or time to reload before his escape... This leads me to believe there was two shooters.

I mean, cats do produce out of control if they're not spayed and neutered. Breeding like rabbbits is cliche, but cats do pretty much do the same thing. Though it's true they don't have a double-barreled uterus like rabbits do.

The guy who killed buggy’s had to use a M1 carbine cuz a grand has 8 round per mag ima for it would not make sense to fire eight rounds then reload then fire one more and a standard carbine mag has 15 rounds

THE M1 GARAND HAS 8 ROUNDS. It’s quite important to account for that
So it was probably an M1 Carbine

Bugsey was big, but today's Vegas has far more in common with a post Hughes casino purchase. The mob is far weaker here than in those heady days my Scout Masters experienced as children, where you would get birthday presents from a guy who turned out to be a hitman.
