You can desire whatever you want, but facts are facts. Notorious mob areas in NY are some of the best areas that have some of the highest real estate prices.

You brought race into this, not me. Organized crime and gangbanging are vastly different. It just so happens that a majority of violent crime in the US is perpetrated by minorities, and the majority of the prison population in the US is also minorities. As for organized crime, it's not exclusive to Italians.

Edit:

Gangs are organized as well. Maybe not to the level mafia/mobs/organized crime is, but they have their system(s) and hierarchy.
realtor.com Do your own research. I'll start you off, check Howard Beach in NY, Malba Whitestone NY, and North Caldwell NJ (where the Sopranos lived)

So mob leadership like to live in high end areas - go figure. That's nothing new. Just because they live there doesn't mean non-organized crime people live there because of them.

My point was, they are generally very safe areas, well cared for, and on the whole, an excellent investment.

They prefer NY and NJ because of strict gun laws.

I'd also like to mention, in terms of gangs, they do kill for specific reasons - just like organized crime does. Yes, there is the gang-banging initiation, random shootings, but they also target rival gangs, specifically people they take offense to that "slighted them", other gangs encroaching on their territory, and rival gang leadership. So in a sense, you can make the argument that gang-bangers do kill for specific reasons.

I was watching a documentary on the mobs of Chicago of the 1920s more recently and apparently the Irish mob did not participate in prostitution because the Church frowned upon it heavily.

Good Irish mob movie: "Kill the Irishman" based on the true story of Danny Greene in Cleveland. If you liked Goodfellas, you'll like this one.

That is because they are upstanding citizens. Extortion, and murder are fine. Role model citizens. You are a joke.

Of course not. That's because they're extorting her
