RICO Initially Was Enacted in 1970 to Combat Organized Crime and Other Corruption As noted above, RICO initially was enacted October 15, 1970. RICO provides powerful criminal penalties for persons who engage in a “pattern of racketeering activity” or “collection of an unlawful debt” and who have a specified relationship to an “enterprise” that affects interstate or foreign commerce. Organized crime derives a major portion of its power through money obtained from such illegal endeavors as syndicated gambling, loan sharking, the theft and fencing of property, the importation and distribution of narcotics and other dangerous drugs, and other forms of social exploitation (Martin, 2015). Pueblo Bishop Bloods Kevin Eleby, who was known to the Los
Russell Aiuto, in his article “Sacco and Vanzetti,” describes the events that led to and followed the executions of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti. On April 15, 1920, two men shot and killed a paymaster and guard in Braintree, Massachusetts. The two men escaped with three accomplices, successfully nabbing nearly 16,000 dollars. Although five men were involved, only two, Sacco and Vanzetti, were ever arrested, tried, and convicted for the crime. The trial against Sacco and Vanzetti was poorly conducted.

The mafia was the most powerful criminal organization in the world. The reason for this belief was that Jack Ruby, the man who shot Oswald, had ties with the mafia. One of the reasons that the mafia could have had reason to murder the president was that his brother, Robert Kennedy, who was also the attorney general, had been acting quite aggressively against some of the mafia bosses. Robert also led a strong campaign against the mafia. Many believe that the mafia saw that getting rid of Kennedy would also get rid of his brother, since there would have to be a new administration after his death, and Robert would have to be replaced.
In addition, the Patriot Act gives the FBI more capacity. If the FBI has more capacity, it could help them to be able to gather information in order for an arrest to take place; this could help to catch criminals faster, while

Nevertheless, this act has helped intercept a money courier, known as Florez-Gomez, who stole over “$1.3 million per month for the Colombian leftist rebel group ‘FARC’” (Ridge). As stated by the same article, “Thanks to Special Agent Norman Bright, an alert ICE agent who used his knowledge of key new elements of the Patriot Act in the investigation and interrogation, Florez-Gomez got arrested and charged with being an unlicensed money transmitter” (Ridge). Without this act, the agent wouldn’t have been able to track down the criminal. In addition to this, the Patriot Act was used to help free a 13-year-old girl from a kidnapper.
On a balmy summer night in July 1985, during the height of the Miami Vice popularity, eight men dressed in police uniforms stormed a boat on the Miami River, surprising six men who were unloading several million dollars’ worth of cocaine. At first, it appeared to be a police raid, but when one of the officers shouted, “kill ‘em”, the cocaine traffickers on the boat knew it was something more sinister and began jumping overboard. The men raiding the boat did not go after the men jumping overboard.

Many Puerto Ricans have always dreamed of seeing their beautiful commonwealth become its own country. American laws today are imposed on the territory, but by leaving Puerto Rico to make its own choices, the citizens could design their government whichever way they would like. This choice has the support of many current Americans, from former inhabitants of Puerto Rico wishing for independence to politicians not wanting to support the island in times of need. On the contrary, Puerto Rico has been the colony of a nation for hundreds of years. They have not had independence since before Spain took over the island in the 1500s, and because of that, it could be disastrous to simply cut all ties with the nation.
A white collar crime is committed to make profits, they are not the acts of madmen or irrational people. They are rational acts that often require planning and careful
White collar crime is an organized crime committed by person of higher socioeconomic status in the course of their business, occupation, or profession (Sutherland, 2002). It was introduced to the Criminal Justice system in 1939, but was overlooked by many people because they never noticed it was happening. White collar crime has been taking place in America for a long time and is summed up as lying, cheating and stealing. There are numerous types of white collar crimes such as bribery, bank fraud, embezzlement, and insurance fraud to name a few (National Check Fraud Center, 2011). One case that we all know of, Enron, not only wiped out lifesavings, but cost investors billions of dollars.
