Former Gambino associate and long time FBI confidential informant Wilfred “Willie Boy” Johnson is my recent topic of discussion here in the “Gangster Chronicles” Johnson was a childhood friend of former Gambino boss John Gotti, when they met while members of teenage street gang, The Fulton Rockaway Boys. Johnson was a legitimate tough guy who used to accompany Gotti on collections when they were brought up & becoming Gambino associates. Johnson, was only half Italian on his mother’s side. His father being Native American. He grew up in an area on the Brooklyn waterfront that was primarily Native American.
They were in demand in the always booming NYC construction business because of a genetic anomaly prevalent in Native Americans that allowed them to walk narrow iron beams without suffering vertigo. However, sadly the same anomaly also makes most Native Americans become prone to becoming violent alcoholics exposed to alcohol.
