John Alite, Prison Expert:
John Alite has repeatedly positioned himself as a ‘Prison Expert.’
Specifically: John Alite has been so confident that he knows everything that happened to John Gotti Sr. while he was incarcerated at USP Marion between 1992 and 2002 that he’s even described Gotti’s experiences in detail, claiming that he received his information “firsthand” (which, is impossible, because John Alite was not there in the prison with Gotti to witness his experiences “firsthand”).
However: during one of his recountings of Gotti’s prison experiences in a 2015 interview with John Ricciutti Alite repeated FOUR different times that USP Marion is located in Colorado, and, instead of correcting him, the host, who seemed to worship John Alite actually agreed with him.
USP Marion is located nowhere near the super-max prison in Florence, Colorado that Alite was thinking of but instead is located far, far away in Marion, Illinois and The Fact that this big ‘Prison Expert’ repeatedly got this wrong? Not only does it show what a dope John Alite is but it discredits every single thing John Alite claims to know about what happened to John Gotti Sr. while he was in prison especially since Alite was not there in the prison with him.
The exact address for USP Marion from the Bureau of Prisons website:
John Alite’s exact statements:
The interview was published to YouTube in four parts between December, 2015 and January, 2016.
From Part One:
Ricciutti: “It’s in Pennsylvania.”
Alite: “No, no. Marion Prison’s in Colorado.”
Ricciutti: “Oh, ohhh, I know the prison you’re talking about.”
From Part Two:
Ricciutti: “He was in Marion, in Colorado.”
Alite: “If you’re gonna talk that talk you better walk it, and, especially in prisons like, Colorado.”
Alite: “And he got comfortable in Colorado, like most people do.”
To find out the truth about John Gotti Sr.’s experiences at USP Marion don’t listen to bitter, jealous rats with incentives to lie but instead ask his lawyers, friends and family who visited him monthly and read about them in detail in his son John A. Gotti’s memoir, Shadow of My Father.
