Several mob like mafia members were charged for massive crimes of the violent type as well as that involving money. Not all of the members that were caught were brought into custody. One of the suspects tells quite vulgarly how he abused a person so that he could obtain what he wanted.
- An indictment was unsealed charging 46 defendants for alleged crimes as part of a multi-state crime network.
- The network stretches from Springfield, MA to southern Florida.
- The indictment was described as reading “like an old school mafia novel”.
““Today’s charges against 46 men, including powerful leaders, members and associates of five different La Cosa Nostra families, demonstrate that the mob remains a scourge on this city and around the country””
