“Life is so beautiful.”

I do not own either a television set or a DVD player, although I occasionally buy and sell off computers. This means that I do not get to watch a lot of movies nowadays and can only relax in the house by reading or playing chess. Some criminals do not deserve to live like normal human beings. I have grown up in a semi-slum, in a very Spartan setting full of temptations. Crime has and is always part of the day to day life in the slums, from petty crimes to murders only those strong enough survive. I have grown up to hate crime and avoid it at all costs. I have managed to walk the straight and narrow. I hate criminals.

But there is a certain type of a criminal that I adore and hold in awe, The Don, not just for an age but for all time. Like Don Vito Andolini Corleone portrayed in Mario Puzzo’s opus magnum “The Godfather” later made into an Oscar winning trilogy with screenplay by Marlon Brando and Robert De Niro. In the opening scene, the undertaker Amerigo Bonasera is petitioning the don for a favour, he couldn’t get justice from the American Criminal Justice system, but now requests the don to deliver justice. The Don, this is a criminal who has things done, and done correctly. He does not condone drug dealing but dabbles in victimless crime and businesses. He has authority and exercises it. He is a paradigmatic family man who speaks in a slow, calculated but firm tone, unflinching in his pursuits, whatever he wants, he gets. In the La Cosa Nostra or Ndrangheta setting, he practices and upholds the ancient honored code of Omerta.

There are times and circumstances which dictate when a person has to act and rely on himself for his defence and protection and guaranteeing the protection of those around him without involving the state or any of its organs. In America, this can be buttressed and given a legal cloak by Amendment 2 of the US constitution. The right to keep and bear arms. Bearing arms presupposes that they are to be used for the purpose they are procured for not just for gun romance. When a person attacks you, use all the defences available to you to defend yourself and teach lessons.

A Don must not trust people, but must value and respect friendships, have a very sharp memory and should never forget those who have helped him or hurt him. These are vital traits that have been credited with keeping Bernado Provenzano on the run for over 40 years. No hurt is to be suffered or excused, punishment must follow. If a person who I know cut my finger, I will definitely make sure that he/she is punished in the manner that I like, not the manner stipulated in the Penal Code.
