The Policeman’s Pimp – Jack Ruby
From his days as ” Sparky Rubenstein, errand boy for Al Capone, to his ownership of a string of Dallas nightclubs where policemen got preferential treatment, Ruby was “one of our boys” according to mobster Johnny Roselli, with whom Ruby met twice during the month prior to the assassination. Other gangster friends of Ruby’s included Joe Civello, Dallas Mafia chief: Barney Baker, teamster president Jimmy Hoffa‘s 370-lb bodyguard; and Dave Yaras, hitman for Chicago mob boss Sam Giancanna. Known as the guy who could “fix it” with e the police, Ruby counted ast least 100 Dallas cops among his pals.
Ruby’s self-professed idol was Lewis J. McWillie, a professional gambler who worked at te mob-owned Tropicana Hotel in Havana. In 1959, Ruby visited McWillie and the two met with crime boss Santos Trafficante Jr. then in a Cuban prison. Shortly after Ruby’s return to Dallas, Trafficante was released. The House Select Committee on Assassination suspected Ruby, acting as a gangland courier, had bought Trafficante’s freedom. During the six-month period that included his Havana trip, the FBI interviewed Ruby eight times as a “potential criminal informant”. For Ruby, this was not a first: in 1947 while still in Chicago, he “performed information functions” for the staff of then-Congressman Richard Nixon.
On June 7, 1964, Ruby told the Warren Commission his “life was in danger” – “Gentlemen,” he said, “if you want to hear further testimony, you will have to get me to Washington soon because…I want to tell the truth and I can’t tell it here”. Before he died, he smuggled two letters out of prison which hint darkly that Lyndon Johnson was behind the conspiracy.
