#1 That's impossible, we were reliably informed by the Famous But Incompetent some 40 odd years ago that they had broken the back of the Five Families.

#2 The Colombo traces its roots to the Profaci bootleggers family formed in 1928. Thus its nearing a century in operation. The Profaci ruled the mob until the late 1950s, when an internal struggle involved its greediest. The "family" was reunited in the early 1960s under Joseph Colombo. After sixty years the claim (probably made by FBI propagandists) that the ENTIRE Colombo leadership was "taken down" really remains to be seen.

#3 Wow! The FBI & DoJ going after actual criminals. I bet all the goverment guys on this get retired after this because they're obviously old school.
(Personally, I'm shocked to hear that there was a labor union in Queens available to be took over.)

#6 They can take down an entire crime family (and how big would that be at this point?) but can't seem to get the 30 yr. old ANTIFA goons that live in Mom's basement? Wonder why?

#7 So the FBI "Again" ☺ has broken a Drug families.
Let's say they actually did COMPLETELY clean house this time.

I wonder which of the other Cartels will take up the slack?

#10 Guess that's why they didn't care about the gymnasts.

Now they have a scapegoat.
