Modern Mobs | 2000
The decline of New York City's legendary crime families is examined. With the rise and fall of New York mobster John Gotti, America's legendary Mafia may have lost its stranglehold on the underworld, but new ethnic crime groups are taking over. The Russian mob, Asian gangs, and Mexican drug cartels are bringing organized crime to a new level.
The activities of Russian, Asian and Mexican organized crime pose a serious threat to the United States. Their infiltration of our political system, banking institutions and financial networks could be on the horizon. American law enforcement authorities are fighting these new threats by establishing new offices abroad and strengthening relations with countries throughout the world.
