Breaking bad is never good part II

Two days after his partner Arthur Siegelman disappeared, Joseph Ferro another Johnny come-lately to the bootlegging game, was put on the spot. Unlike the former life guard however there is no mystery clouding Ferro’s murder. The youthful would be gangster-he was only twenty- was walking to his East Village home with his wife and his friend. As they were approaching Ferro's building, two gunmen jumped out of a doorway, ran up to the trio and fired a bullet into Ferro’s head. Another went intohis friend's stomach. Both men were rushed to Bellevue Hospital where Ferro subsequently died and his pal's wound was labeled as mortal.

If I were Ferro, I'd have been laying low after my partner vanished without a trace. Or, at the very least, I'd be packing heat and growing eyes in the back of my head.

Yes, but as you pointed out, they skipped the apprentice level and tried to go pro. If we would like to give Ferro the benefit of the doubt, perhaps he thought his partner was not answering his calls as opposed to being at the bottom of the Hudson in an oil drum. Or where ever he was.
