“Organized Crime and Practical Reflection”
Consider what you learned about organized crime and gangs this week and respond to the following items in your post:
- Use your textbook and summarize, in your own words, the four different types of organized crime.
- What are some investigative procedures and legal weapons from the reading that have been used in the war on organized crime in the United States? Which do you think is most effective and why?
- What is the definition of a “gang” and can it be a type of organized crime? Why or why not? Justify your answer.
- Have there been times in your life when your fear of crime (or the fear you see others around you exhibit) has affected decisions you’ve made? What caused the fear? Share and explain your experience.
