You don't hear a lot about organized crime nowadays because keeping a low profile is the best way to make money as a criminal (or as a legit business man for that matter). I think they all learned that violence on the street and getting in the news and a public reputation only leads to more police attention and problems.

Yeah what he said.

It also depends on what you mean. I think the "Italian Mob" like you're explaining is over. Its still around but much less organized. The bigger ones are russian, abanian, chinese, south american gangs. I would say a big difference between street gangs and organized crime.

There don't seem to be many mob related murders, and it's been like that for a while

Even the level of violence you see in the Sopranos is highly anachronistic

What exactly are they running but the nickel and dime drug trades in slum neighborhoods where no one can afford any "good" drugs.. LOL too funny. Everyone in the hood knows even if you want good ish dont holler at a brother. The mob still has an influence in labor racketeering, gambling, etc. Bigger operations than Nickel and dime bags that "da pirus be doin" YO! Black gangs lol lol, I have seen 7 years old that claim these gangs, what a joke. At-least the Latin Kings are worthy of respect

I grew up with guys that are still rocking colors into their thirties, None of them have a net worth over - 5,000 and that is including the "street money".. They look like a bunch of fools now, sad thing is some of them actually had talent and were halfway decent kids. Now they are just a bunch of old scrubs wearing silly colors looking like high school kids. But yea the black gangs are running "DA STREETS YO"

People are so naive regarding the amount of money generated by organized "white" crime via labor racketeering, GAMBLING, and drugs. Just because they are not stupid enough to advertise it like the ******* dressed in red on the same corner 8 hours a day, doesn't mean its not there. Have "inner city" drug-dealers/ criminals ever heard of discretion, and or switching up meeting places. Its very comical.

No gang types in the poor black or Latino areas hangs on corners these days. NYC gangs in general don't draw much attention to themselves now also.
