Re: Official: Albanian Mafia versus Italian Mafia

Re: Washington Times - Cartels rival Mexican Army

Would you say the Mexican Cartels have more power in Mexico than the Italian Mafia does in Italy? No, but they are certainly comparable. The Mexican cartels can be ranked right up there with the international Italian, Russian, Albanian, Chinese, Japanese, and Colombian groups. The same thing going ...

Italian Mafia Update

Anyone have any current updates on the top guys in the top Mafia/Camorra/'Ndrangheta clans, and their current situation? For instance, how much prison time did Paolo and Cosimo Di Lauro receive?

Re: Florida

Florida is wide open as far as organized crime activity. From the time they pushed aside the Cubans in the late 1970's/early 1980's, the Colombians have had a dominant presence there. In fact, South Florida and the Northeast are basically the last areas where the Colombians are still the main drug ...

Re: Italian Mob Revenue Surges to $167 Billion From 2007

Generally speaking, the Camorra is less organized and therefore less stable than both the Cosa Nostra and 'Ndrangheta. The clans are much more "porous," to use Saviano's word, as the rules for joining are less restrictive. As such, each clan might vary somewhat differently but the general makeup is...

They are certainly afforded a high level of respect, though I wouldn't say they are considered "gods."

Well, the ranks within an American LCN family are not that hierarchial either.
