They've usually got something on them, and as soon as they are arrested the mob start getting twitchy.Outlining how much time in jail they could get and the dangers their family face from the mob.Psychology.Given the amount of crime these guys are involved in even a low ranking member is going to know enough to get people put away for a long stretch.

All they gotta do is create a lack of trust. Soon as a man feels he can't trust his goombahs, it's all over.

Are cheap insults all you have left? The Colombo family has had 7 made members flip. It turns out a couple of guys listed under the Colombos were not made. Overall, it's a very accuate list of members in multiple families who have turned. Except for a couple here or there, it doesn't list associates that have flipped.

The Colombo family currently has about 100 members. At their peak in the 1950's and 1960's they had about 200 members. There have only been 7 known members that have flipped. Now there have almost certainly been other members that have secretly given the government information in the past. They're called "dry snitches." But I can't really comment on them because, like I said, they're unknown.

1 out of 3 mobsters rat? Don't be ridiculous. There have been thousands of LCN members over the years and there are less than 100 known made members who have flipped. It just seems like a lot because most of them have come within the last few decades.

I'll reply to them soon enough. For some reason, I keep wasting my time answering your posts, most of which are ridiculous and meaningless.

There are a few reasons why mob guys decide to flip. Most often it is because they are facing stiff charges with heavy prison time and so they make a deal with the government to avoid doing the most of what would be their likely sentence if convicted. Other times it is because they have fallen out of favor with the powers that be in their respective crime family and their lives are in danger. Sometimes if is a combination of both. Also, some guys make deals to help families members out, who are facing charges.

In Milano's case, he pleaded guilty to third-degree murder, as well as agreed to testify against other Philadelphia mob members, in order to avoid a possible death sentence. Milano had been involved in the conspiracy to kill Frank "Frankie Flowers" D'Alfonso in 1985. He was also part of the Scarfo faction in the war between Nicky Scarfo and Harry Riccobene. But it was actually his brother Nick Milano, as well as Phillip Narducci, that killed Riccobene faction member Salvatore Tamburrino in front of his mother at their home. I'm not sure about any relation between the Scarfos and the Milanos.

Also, the brother of "the mad hatter", Anthony Anastasio flipped a few years before he died:

A less known informer was Gambino soldier Alfred Sanantonio. who was found shot to death in a
Brooklyn flower shop in 1963. The murder plot was partly picked up on an FBI bug, but since the wiretap
was infact illegal there would be no convictions.
