One of the leading supporters andreaserchers of the Elvis-mafia conspiracy, Gail Brewer-Giorgio, claims after searching and scrutinizing thousands of official and released FBI documents, she has discovered that Elvis joined the FBI in 1976 as an undercover agent. He did this to help the agency infiltrate a criminal organisation known as “The Fraternity” which was a cult like organized crime ring that operated much like a mob (Chan) (Daily).

Dean O’Banion made the roaring twenties roar by running a gang in Chicago. During this time the Prohibition Act was in place and alcohol sale was illegal. O 'Banion saw this as an opportunity to make a profit. He hijacked a whiskey truck and sold the alcohol illegally to people who wanted it. He was also the reason a gang war started.
Although crime existed prior to the prohibition era, it would see a new extent of the meaning throughout this time. Petty gangster began to monopolize the alcohol industry (illegally) and became millionaires by engaging in lucrative criminal operations. These criminal operations included bootlegging, speakeasies and smuggling. What was once a petty thug with little reign, now gained dominance throughout their community and managed to create a criminal empire that provides them with not only wealth, but power. This power could be seen with the merge of prohibition and the political machine in Chicago, thus creating the most notorious criminal organization in U,S, History, the mob.
Almost a decade ago, Antoine Jones was tried, convicted, and given a life sentence for operating a drug trade. Of course, his possession of illegal drugs and involvement in the selling of illegal drugs is enough for his conviction, but Jones argues that the police secured evidence unconstitutionally. When the police first started observing Jones on suspicions of his participation in the drug trade, they fastened a hidden GPS device on his car, in order to track Jones to a so-called “stash house,” although they did not procure a warrant to use the device. The police were able to successfully apprehend Jones based on evidence procured from the GPS. Citing the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution, Jones took his case to the Supreme Court.
I first heard of RICO when watching the television series Sons of Anarchy (SOA). It appears in SOA because the ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms unit) is trying to put the motorcycle club away for weapons trafficking – which is a serious crime in the US, especially if it 's international. Soo what is R.I.C.O.? RICO stands for Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations. It is a law that was passed in the 1970s that was designed to fight organized crime in the United States.
This is what happened with Antoine Jones in the Supreme Court Case of The United States v. Antoine Jones. Jones was arrested for drug possession when police attached a tracker to his jeep without judicial approval and followed him for a month. Jones argued his conviction because it violated the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unreasonable search and seizure. The Supreme Court’s ruling was delivered by Justice Scalia, and with a 5-4 split they decided this: "the Government 's installation of a GPS device on a target 's vehicle, and its use of that device to monitor the vehicle 's movements, constitutes a 'search '" under the Fourth Amendment” (Scalia 5). This court case ties directly to the Patriot Act.
