The American Mafia, an Italian-American organized-crime across the United States, particularly New York and Chicago. The Mafia had violent crimes, secret rituals and notorious characters such as Al Capone and John Gotti
People believed the Mafia was corrupting the minds of the children and putting them in danger.The mob would take from all people no matter how young. People feared the mob thinking they would continue crime throughout the city, this turned out to be true.
The Mafia came about when the United States Prohibition began, the 18th amendment made it illegal to manufacture, transport, or sell alcohol.The Mafia took advantage of prohibition and began selling illegal alcohol. The profits from bootlegging exceeded regular crimes
During the latter part of the 20th century, the government used anti-racketeering laws to convict high-ranking mobsters and weaken the Mafia.During the 1980s and 1990s, RICO laws were used to convict numerous high-level mobsters
The Mafia is still alive and active just not as much as they were in the 1900's. Today, most of the Mafia's activities are in Northeastern United States and Chicago, where they continue to dominate organized crime.
