It’s never okay to murder people, and it’s againdt the law to kill people period. So Italians are very relevant and you should be ashamed of yourself for defending any kind of crime or criminal act.

The mafia was involved in various kind of organized crime and often shook up small businesses and others for money. Getting in their bad side could leave you beaten or dead.

So Italians and other whites like Russians do need to be brought into this, because violence is violence and crime is crime and if you are against these things you should condemn them in all people and not just attack Blacks and Latinos.

He's not defending. It's a completely different tier of savage trash to commit violent crimes on random innocent strangers. Only ghetto trash do that kind of stuff. No honor and all for nothing. They also end up crying in the court room afterwards.

The Yakuza for instance would make you cut off a piece of your finger if you did something as dishonorable as punching some civilian for no reason. Pretty sure Russians and Italian mafias would feel the same.

I would NEVER, EVER, EVER (!!!!) defend the mafia. Ever. There is no honor in the mafia and they are all scum.

I am simply saying not to bring Italians into this. Whatever criminality occurs in an organized crime ring is vastly, vastly different from people killing or hurting innocents just going about their day. Apples and oranges. Don't malign Italian Americans just to make a point which makes no sense. That's what I'm saying.

Yes you are defending the mob, because you donít want to admit that there are criminal Italians. Stop making excuses for organized crime. The mafia has horribly hurt innocents and corrupt mafia controlled unions and contractors are one reason why it costs 4 billion to build three subway stations for the Second Avenue subway. This does extremely damage to transit riders and taxpayers. Not to mention the mafia does indeed kill innocent people when it is convenient for them, such as when they have taken down small business owners who did not pay their tax to the mafia.

The point went completely over your head.

We are here, in this thread, specifically talking about random acts of violence on passersby in the street. You brought up the Italian and Russian mafia for some reason which has nothing to do with the topic at hand.

Nobody is saying that Italians and Russians do not engage in crime. They do. But they do not, by and large, engage in the type of crime shown here in this thread. Why you felt the need to bring that up, I will never know.

The NYC forum is the funniest on City Data. I can even imagine if we were all in a room in life life discussing these topics.

They pick on white education young ladies which is much more terrifying. Most of the commentaries here criticizing people of color don't know any in real life let alone will ever visit the Bronx.

Yeah even though the mafia is pretty much irrelevant now, they should not be defended just because they're white guys that wear suits.
