Federal Agents, Police Arrest More Than 100 Suspected Mobsters

More than 100 suspected mobsters and others were arrested this morning in a sweep by federal agents and police in three states.

From The New York Times:

The sweep began before dawn, and the targets ranged from reputed small-time book makers and crime-family functionaries to six reputed senior mob figures from three crime families, including the entire current leadership of the Colombo crime family, according to several people briefed on the arrests.

Among those charged, some of the people said, were roughly 30 made members of New York’s five crime families and the families in New Jersey and New England, along with scores of mob associates and several union officials.

    Well, in my opinion, this may be a major Bust, but I have to agree with a former “Mob member” on the News tonight, that the Maffia, Crime Families, and Mobsters will never cease to exist. It is too massive in its people, infiltrations and intertwining complexities to ever be erradicated once and for all. But hey, good job for now.
