Polish-American criminals

I thought I'd start a thread to discuss Polish-American criminals. We can start with -

Dennis Kozlowski

Named one of the Top Ten Crooked CEO's by Time Magazine - time.com/time/specials/packages/article/0,28804,1903155_190 3156_1903152,00.html - Kozlowski is an excellent example of a crook. For instance -

Tyco paid $1 million (half of the $2 million bill) for the 40th birthday party of Kozlowski's second wife, Karen Mayo Kozlowski. The extravagant party, held on the Italian island of Sardinia, featured an ice sculpture of the Statue of Michelangelo's David[clarification needed] urinating Stolichnaya vodka. This birthday bash was disguised as a shareholder meeting in order to get corporate funding. In a camcorder video, Dennis Kozlowski states that this party will bring out a Tyco core competency - the ability to party hard. Subsequently, this shareholder meeting/birthday party became known as the Tyco Roman Orgy.[5]

And his conviction -

Kozlowski was convicted on June 17, 2005 of crimes related to his receipt of $81 million in purportedly unauthorized bonuses, the purchase of art for $14.725 million and the payment by TYCO of a $20 million investment banking fee to Frank Walsh, a former Tyco director.[2] On September 19, 2005 he was sentenced by Judge Michael Obus of the Manhattan Supreme Court to serve from eight years and four months to twenty-five years in prison for his role in the scandal.

Tut tut.

The Unabomber, right?

Nasty chap - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ted_Kaczynski

is an American mathematician, anarchist, social critic, primitivist, and Neo-Luddite[1] who engaged in a mail bombing campaign that spanned nearly 20 years, killing three people and injuring 23 others.

Not American, but there was that Polish guy in Wales who fed his business partner to the pigs a few years ago. He always maintained his innocence, despite the trail of human blood from the farmhouse door to the pigsty.

Nasty chap

Although he was a very intelligent nasty chap. It's a shame he didn't use his mind for more good things. His insanity was obvious at an early age considering he locked himself in his room everyday solving differential equations for hours instead of socializing with friends. I blame mathematics on this one. :-)

Another Polish-American criminal was Paul Jaworski. He was a mobster who committed the first armored car robbery along with his gang.

Before his execution, he said, "I preached atheism since the day I quit singing the choir. A man is yellow if he spends his life believing in nothing and then comes crawling to the church because he is afraid his death is near."

Yes leave it to Delphiadomine to always look for negative things about Polish people ever since some Polish people dared to suggest that Delphiadomine's beloved Russia was not giving us all the facts on the Smolensk crash.

Ryszard Kukulski, the Iceman

It's Kuklinski and he was also half-Irish. Aha, one of those 1/2 German, 1/2 Dutch, 1/2 Polish, 1/2 Irish, 1/2 Scottish folk then? ;) ;) Kuklinski, that's who I meant :)

LOL delphi really needs psychiatric care!

This obsession with Americans and Pol-Ams is too much.

So people should only write posts about the good guys? Plenty of those already.

No. I'm simply pointing out mikey's obsession with degrading Americans and Pol-Ams. I wonder what americans or pol-ams did to him...

Actually very few Pol-Ams are on this site, most are expat Poles living in America.

Martha Stewart the famous Omnimedia founder and tycoon born Martha Kostyra (Polish parents) was convicted for financial fraud and served 5 months in Jail.
She is Polish American but never boasted about her Polish roots and never even actually promoted in anyway Polish recipes and Polish specialties.

Not true, look up her "Tribute to Mrs. Kostyra" show (or so) in which Martha Stewart teaches the audience how too cook traditional polish food. This was after her mother passed away.

Martha Stewart picked up a "Wasp" name and as you said started to mention anything relating her to Polish ancestry only
"After her mother passed away ", no comment.

man Delph, you've got quite the hard on for Pol-Ams. i think it's high time you go to Duhmerica and see it all for yourself. then you can come back on here with some real experience.

Seems a bit of a "sad" topic for a thread,(as in, oh dear....here we go again...) but scanning through and seeing Martha Stewerts name along side serial killers and peado's did make me chuckle :)

An interesting case is the interestingly named "Kielbasa Posse" -

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_Mob#The_Kielbasa_Posse

I mean, guys - couldn't you have picked a more fearsome name?

On the other hand, these guys -

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_Mob#The_Greenpoint_Crew

Thoroughly nasty from the sounds of things!

But they do seem to be Polish crmiinals rather than Polish-American criminals - so off topic.

We can add to this list SS guard at Treblinka Bronislaw Hajda (although his US citizenship was revoked when the truth came out).

My, Google is good - if you search for "Polish-American criminals", this link is now top!

One of the more interesting serial killers is the "Killer Clown" - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Wayne_Gacy

My my. Certainly another nasty piece of work!

There were a lot of Polish-American mobsters during the 1920s.

Also, Polish-Americans were frequently hired to do work for the Italian Mafia. The Gambino Crime Family hired many Polish assassins. Kuklinski (The Iceman) was one of them.

Come to think of it. One of the US Presidents was assassinated by a Polish-American.

John Wayne Gacy, Jr. (March 17, 1942 - May 10, 1994)

Why is it you did not disclose that Gacy is also of Danish heritage?

If this was a good guy, you would be quick to point out that he had non-Polish ancestry. But since he's a terrible person, you only mention that he's Polish.

criminals u will find in all kinds of ethnical groups. thats nothing particular just for polish people. think about all the italo mafia, they made even tons of movies about them.

why the focus on polish people? they might get that maybe as a degradation.

Thread title : Polish-American Criminals.

Not "Danish-American Criminals" - and anyway, Polish-Americans are quick to claim when someone successful is "one of theirs" despite being only half Polish-American - so it logically follows that they have to accept that the bad guys can be Polish-American, too.

But seeing as you feel a bit upset that he wasn't a pure Polish-American serial killer, let's mention an honourable gentleman who was thoroughly Polish - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Earl_J._Wojciechowski

When Wojciechowski's brother Fred was questioned about him in 1926, he replied, "I've seen him once in twenty years...that was when he shot me, six years ago."

Nice chap, huh?

You and your limey PFers are also quick to point out that these successful individuals are only 1/2 Polish-Americans. Where are you guys in this thread???

I thought so...

If you ask me, Polish Polish people do the same.

Why point out what has already been pointed out?

Personally I think that the topic of this thread should be "Polonia criminals", that way we could include both proper Poles like holocaust participant Anthony Sawoniuk and anybody who thinks that constantly repeated comment removed

He is Polish in the same way that makes James Clarence Mangan the most famous British in the XIX century.

Maybe "American Polonia" criminals would be best - as it's in the Polonia - USA forum, and it should be on topic, right?

Mods? :)

That's what you guys are for, right?

Nice to see that you resort to ethnic slurs when trying to make a point, though.
