Ineffective legislation against organized crime

Other Names:
Ineffective laws against racketeering

Ineffective legislation against organized criminals, whose untouchable images are only enhanced by hesitant officials, leaves a society feeling insecure and unsure of the power of the government's protection.


Organized crime was cheating the USA of more than $18 billion a year and costing it more than 400,000 jobs, it raised consumer prices about 0.3% and reduced per capita income more than $77 in 1985. During the approximate 150 years of British rule in Hong Kong, UK officials failed all attempts to eliminate the power of organized criminals in the city.
