* Referenced in ''Radio/OldHarrysGame''. Among the ''many'' sins Thomas committed while he was alive, he once hired a hitman to kill a union leader, and then, rather than paying him, sent a ''second'' hitman to kill him. And then a ''third'' one after the second one.

* ''Film/{{Gomorra}}'' (2008). Two teenage hoodlums have been running out of control in the local Camorra clan's territory, despite warnings from the mob boss to behave themselves or die. They ignore this warning, stealing a cache of weapons hidden by the Camorra. An older mobster points out they'll have trouble with the police if two youngsters are killed publicly, so he approaches them with a deal -- for 10,000 euros they return the weapons and kill a mobster who has betrayed him. The youths follow their target to an isolated location, only to be murdered in an ambush and their bodies carted away by a bulldozer to be disposed of.
