Steve RaucciStill don't like punks. I don't like wise guys. And I still believe people should get what they deserve.Sarah KoenigIt's almost as if Steve's been waiting all his life to lay out his worldview on tape, if only someone would ask. Keith McKenna doesn't even have to. He says relatively little in these recordings, which are from three separate meetings in Steve's office over the course of two months. In answer to the most generic questions, "What have you been up to lately? How's work? Have you seen so and so?" Steve lets loose like a champion.For the cops, the tapes are a gold mine. Steve essentially confesses by name to almost all of the bombings and vandalism and bad acts that cops already suspect him of. Hal and Debbie Gray, the 2001 Rotterdam bombing, how he didn't know the cigarette butts wouldn't light his explosives.Steve RaucciI just wondered why the last two never went off. How would I know?

Sarah KoenigAnd why taking revenge on someone at home is his method of choice.Steve RaucciProbably one of the worst things that somebody could think of is not feeling safe in yourown house. But I guess where I'm going with this, Keith, is that some of the things I do, like I never want to physically hurt anyone. Property damage, you can do a lot with that.Sarah Koenig"Property damage. You can do a lot with that."A big theme with Steve in these recordings is how there's nothing he can't get away with in the district. Nobody dares tell him to make cuts in his department. He can hire who he likes, fire who he likes, no one can complain.Steve RaucciThey're not going to file a grievance against me. Not if they want to last or live. One or the other.Sarah KoenigThen he gestures to the photo of The Godfather, Don Coreone, that's hanging on his wall.Steve RaucciThe reason I keep that picture behind the door-- that was given to me by the people up there in the administration office.Keith MckennaOh, I like that.Steve RaucciBecause that's the way they see me. Don Raucci, and I never even saw that whole series. I'm everybody's hero. And they know it. I think they in a way, admire that about me when I talk rough sometimes. That's the only justice there is, street justice. And I always tell them, it's like I'll say to Eric or the board, You guys are [BLEEP] lucky. You've got a Steve. When it falls on me I don't have a Steve to go to. I've got to fix it. I'll be a legend here in their eyes. When I'm dead and gone, they'll always be talking about whatSteve did and what he could do and that type of thing.And just the [INAUDIBLE] alone. I said two weeks ago, I can't believe how much you guys have come to depend on me. [BLEEP] What are you going to do if I'm not around? Because the superintendent, he's certainly never going to tell me what to do. He listens to me. If I tell him, this is what you should do, that's what he'll do. I mean that's how far it comes. The board's president, Jeff, nobody here can handle the union aspects.
