How to Become a Bounty Hunter



The Day the FBI Could No Longer Deny the Existence of the Mafia

It was a breezy November day in 1957 when the FBI had no choice but to admit that the mafia not only existed, but it operated on a national level, Slate reports.

It was Nov. 14, 1957 – 56 years ago Thursday.

New York state troopers were alarmed by the number of out-of-state, expensive cars that gathered in Appalachia for a national summit meeting.

Before that meeting, the FBI refused to admit the mafia even existed, Slate reported. FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover was more focused on communists and so-called domestic subversives.
