The police raid in 1969 upon the gay bar named Stonewall in Greenwich Village, which caused a famous riot among gays outside the bar and ultimately led to the gay revolution, did not take occur because it was a gay bar. It took place because the Mafia ran the bar, which made payoffs to stay open as it was unlicensed and operated after hours.
The real purpose of the raid, which was devised by Detective Rothstein, was to identify and monitor the bar’s payoff to the bagman for a high NYPD police official, the First Deputy Commissioner, who had arranged that the bar could operate illegally. After Rothstein received the signal from his informant inside the bar that the payoff to the bagman had taken place and then watched the bagman depart, the raid was commenced although only Rothstein and one or two others knew what was behind the raid, which was an out-and-out attack by the honest cops againt the dishonest cops and the Mafia.
When the cops rushed into the bar they destroyed almost everything inside, confiscated the liquor, arrested the management (except for Rothstein’s informant) and subjected the gays inside to abuse and harassment. The gays were well aware that Stonewall was Mafia operated and that it stayed open because of payoffs to the police. They had come to believe that the only places safe for them to congregate in New York City were of this type. However, the gays were outraged and felt betrayed as they watched what was happening to their favorite bar. They had no knowledge that Rothstein’s intent to monitor the Mafia’s payoff to the bagman for the high police official was a prelude to launching a public investigation into police corruption.
The ensuing controversy over Stonewall and other illegal establishments run by the Mafia through payoffs to the police led to the creation of the Knapp Commission in 1970. The Knapp Commission’s stated purpose was to investigate corruption in NYPD. It was headed by Whitman Knapp. Maurice Nadjari was named the Special Prosecutor in 1972. From the beginning, the Commission and Special Prosecutor’s office were compromised. Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau had a spy in the commission as did Matty “The Horse” Ianniello, a mobster. A few days before Nadjari was fired or resigned from the special prosecutor’s office, Detective Rothstein and John Rubenstein of the New York State Select Committee on Crime met with Nadjari at a bar and restaurant next to his office. Rothstein informed him that Nadjari’s right hand assistant had met with Matty “The Horse” and had sold him out. Nadjari asked Rothstein if he would make those statements in the assistant’s presence. Rothstein replied, “Absolutely.” When Nadjari’s assistant showed up a few minutes later, Rothstein repeated what he knew. The assistant never denied the allegations. This was because Detective Rothstein had a high level informant who attended the meeting with Nadjari’s assistant and Matty “The
The end result was that the Knapp Commission never achieved its potential to successfully investigate and end corruption in the police department.
