Mafia killer Vito Guzzo says he's “completely rehabilitated”

Vito Guzzo
Vito Guzzo is serving a 38-year sentence for five murders in the 1990s. He’s seeking compassionate release under the First Step Act. He describes himself in a court filing as “completely rehabilitated” and someone who “has matured from a rash young man pursuing a lawless lifestyle, to a reflective, empathetic middle-aged adult.” Feds aren't impressed, and point out he was inducted into the Colombo crime family in the past decade while caged at the federal prison in Danbury, Conn.

Guzzo was leader of the 'Giannini Crew'
In his request for release, Guzzo refers to himself as elderly even though he’s 57. He describes as serious injuries from two shootings in 1990 and 1996, which left him with the loss of sight in one eye and the removal of part of his left lung. Suspected in many killings, Guzzo survived 11 gunshot wounds from two hit attempts.

Cops describe Guzzo as an ultra violent hood with a hair-trigger temper who set the tone for his crew. He waited five years to avenge the death of his gangster father.
