How to Become a Bounty Hunter



NY FBI Cuts Back on Mob Investigators, Prosecutor Calls Cutbacks ‘Devastating’

By Allan Lengel

The FBI’s  is dedicating  less and less resources to battle the New York mob these days.

Mob expert Jerry Capeci of Gang Land News reports:

There are fewer agents on mobster squads than there were two years ago, following the mobapalooza roundup of more than 120 defendants on Mafia Takedown Day when FBI and Justice Department big shots vowed that they were going to keep a sharp eye on organized crime.

Until recently, the FBI had one squad assigned to each New York crime family. No more. The Bureau has decided it now needs only two New York City-based squads to monitor, investigate, and make cases against the 700 or so members and estimated 7000 associates of the infamous Five Families, Gang Land has learned.

He reports that the number of mob-fighting FBI agents is down 60 percent since 2008.

“It’s devastating,”  one veteran organized crime prosecutor told Capeci. “When you had five squads doing five families, it was hard, covering all the different crews in the different neighborhoods all over the city; now you want to have two squads covering five families? The cutbacks are just devastating.”
