What is the status of the Italian Mafia in the United States today? I know it is not as powerful as it was.?
Does it exist at all? Do urban gangs do the work that the mafia once used to handle? Drugs, prostitution, pornography, "insurance", protection, etc.?
Like the other guy said, OC (organized crime) and gangs (unorganized crime) are apples & oranges. My ex was involved in it. It exists, but isn’t as powerful. The DeCavalcante family in Jersey claims that Sopranos was based off them.
