Author Topic: Is there Mafia in Tulsa  (Read 23949 times)

Hey, I know this sounds like a stupid question, but I was reading through the posts about restaurants and some guy mentioned seeing a couple at Flemings.  A hot dark haired girl and a big guy who looks like Tony Soprano.  I've seen them before too out at other places. Mainly I was looking at the girl because she is smoking hot, but that dude carries himself like "Don't F with me" without saying anything. and today I saw the guy in a big Mercedes smoking a cigar.  I don't want to sound stupid or like I am stereotyping people, but he looks like a mobster.  Now I know that doesn't mean anything, but it leads me to this question:

Is there a Mafia in Tulsa? I am originally from Cherry Hill New Jersey, and someone who looks like that man is someone I would run like hell from.  So is there a mob in Tulsa?

I can't say I've seen anyone like that around these parts.  I do recall the Mafia hit at Southern Hills in 1981 on Roger Wheeler but I think that was isolated.
There are plenty of trustfund kids that have grown up here.  I'm sure you ran across one that has plenty of money, a few businesses and lots of time on his hands.

A friend told me Kal's closed the day after the golfer left.  I haven't been down Lewis to check the rumor out.  Anybody have input as to it still being in business.

There may not be a Santa Clause but they are invisible among us.  Their rule is “Don’t tread on us”.  You cannot profile them but it is presumed that Wheeler disregarded their motto.  Remember the reporter for the Tribune that wrote about the meeting in the motel?

Many cities our size and larger it's trash collection and landfills, but coin-operated vending (money laundering) was big in NE OK for years.

I originally wrote about this couple in my post on best restaurants.  Kingmutt is correct, the woman is extremely attractive, and the Sopranoesque man is a little intimidating. My wife and I have seen them at some of Tulsa's better eateries.

However, regardless of who or what this couple is or is not, mutt does bring up an interesting question.  Is there organized crime in Tulsa, aside from the Roger Wheeler incident?
