Hard hitting, street level life in New York City and its surroundings.  Watch the overcrowded jungles break up and dance to the tune of Law and Order.  Told in gritty realistic style, progressing from the 60s to current day.

The tales of crime are placed within the larger socio-economic context of ethnicity, gentrification, and politics, through unique statistics and visual elements.

Pretty decent story telling.  Not your run of the mill crime documentary.  I'm sick of the mainstream media garbage portraying mobsters like they're gods.  Same old regurgitated crap over and over again.  This one told the story from the street.

Who gets the final say in profit from all this kind of street madness?  None of those people depicted looked happy to me!
Too much money, too much temptation.  Where did all that money go?  Certainly not wasted on drugs, wine, and wimmen!

Cybercrime Is The Modern-Day Mafia

The basic concept of the mafia has evolved to take advantage of the Internet. “History serves as a great teacher of how organized crime develops and ways criminals are able to locate their desired assets. In today’s world, the Internet creates a new playground for thieves,” explained Kevin Hickey, President and CEO of BeyondTrust. “They have exchanged explosives and guns for vulnerabilities and exploits. They have changed ski masks for the anonymity of the internet and are able to resell precious data in the dark and deep perils of the web. No matter their means of thievery, criminals have the same desired outcome in mind.”


Craigslist sex trafficking, offshore Internet gambling, and wind energy. Sure, the Mafia still traffics heroin, extorts businesses, and kills people. But today's gangster—like any good venture capitalist—has adapted to the times. It's not that the Mob is necessarily branching into new industries. It's just that they've pushed age-old breadwinners—prostitution, gambling, and money laundering—to new levels (or depths) in order to compete in an increasingly globalized economy.
