It is quite difficult to defend the statement The ranks of American organized crime whether viewed in the past or present cut across the lines of class ethnicity religion trade or profession Of course the more successful organized crime endeavors attract the wealthier more well established and well educated elements in our society In order to defend this statement its important to dissect many elements of organized crime and find its direct links to this statement First of all I think the most important point that needs to be established is that success is definitely an aspect of any form of organized crime I do not believe success means that you dont get caught for your actions In fact it is quite the contrary In many cases the one thing you will notice is each person has been exposed for the element of organized crime they were involved in The success we talk about clearly pertains to risk versus reward For instance when Qwest executives were indicted for fraud they found several cover-ups in excess of 33 million Extensive profits were made and little penalty was paid in return for the laws broken Revenues were inflated by 144 million and when Qwest stock plummeted many executives cashed in millions in stock options Basically cashing in stocks that were overpriced to begin with due to fraudulent schemes and selling them before they returned to a more accurate value In this case 4 people faced indictment while 4 were sued while perhaps hundreds got rich In fact those people who were indicted and sued had the luxury of affording a great legal defense due to the amount of money they gained by their illegal actions While they may have had penalties and sentences that included prison time the general opinion is that the risk was quite worth the reward Furthermore I believe that none of this had anything to do with ethnicity religion
