The Beginnings of a Movie?

Thomas and Rosemarie Uva were not exactly criminal geniuses. They ripped off mobsters at their social clubs. Predictably, this got the Uvas whacked. Now their story is at the center of the trial of reputed mob capo Dominick "Skinny Dom" Pizzonia.

The couple liked to rob Mafia-run social clubs in Little Italy and elsewhere around the city, which, as just about everyone knows, is a really good way to get killed.

They even had the audacity to force mobsters to drop their pants as they swiped their cash and jewelry and cleaned out their card games.

The holdups proved predictably hazardous: The Uvas got whacked on Christmas Eve 1992.

Thats amazing. Of all places to rob. Banks, convenience stores, atm's, armed mob people, armed drug dealers, might as well rob cops as well I mean they have guns too.
