Fourteen alleged members of the Chicago Mafia have been charged with racketeering crimes including eighteen murders. One suspect was found dead and two are believed to have escaped. Two of those charged were retired US policemen.
"Today the Outfit takes a hit," said US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, referring to the branch once run by Al Capone.

Eleven are charged with conspiracy to murder, and other counts include extortion, illegal gambling, threats, violence, bribery, intimidation and controlling unions, dating back to 1969.

James Marcello, 63, was thought to be the most senior suspect arrested. FBI officials said he was the leader of organised crime in Chicago

Theres not much i can say here other than the streets of Chicago will hopefully be a much safer place to be with these criminals behind bars.

With serious crimes dating back as far as 1969 its fair to say that these men were major players in the Chicago organised crime ring.

Lets hope the authorities continue their good work and help to bring the rest of thier fellow criminals to justice.

Probably wrong here-
Until the Mafia got into drugs weren't things better than they are now with the gangs and semi-related thugs?

Didn't the Mafia keep some type of order?
