The 10 Cosa Nostra Commandments

After arresting a top Godfather near Palermo, Sicily's police have found what may be the legendary mafiosa "10 Commandments" at the house of a Mob boss, detailing how to get "made" and what level of loyalty is required. Lo Piccolo apparently carried the papers everywhere with him. It has given investigators a unique insight into what makes a perfect mobster.

1. No one can present himself directly to another of our friends. There must be a third person to do it.

2. Never look at the wives of friends.

3. Never be seen with cops.

4. Don't go to pubs and clubs.

5. Always be available for Cosa Nostra, even if your wife's about to give birth.

6. Appointments must be respected.

7. Wives must be treated with respect.

8. When asked for any information, the answer must be the truth.

9. Money cannot be appropriated if it belongs to others or to other families.

10. People who can't be part of Cosa Nostra are anyone with a close relative in the police, with a two-timing relative in the family, anyone who behaves badly and doesn't hold to moral values.
