The Gambinos Are Back

Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

USA Today reports that 14 members of the infamous Gambino family were arrested by the FBI today on “counts ranging from sex trafficking to murder and racketeering.”

The charges were described at a news conference Tuesday afternoon. U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said it appears to be the first time that a crime family was accused of setting up its own interstate sex trafficking ring.

Bharara said it’s more evidence that organized crime lives on, despite repeated prosecutions.

The charges included an allegation that those who were trafficked included a 15-year-old girl. Authorities said the women were under the age of 20.

Is it just me or is anybody else wondering whether we’ll ever win the war on organized crime. It just seems that whenever a specific mafia boss is arrested, he’s instantly replaced by someone else. It’s extremely depressing.
