Many criminals tend to act alone, but when a group of criminals gets organized and systematically commit a crime, it is more difficult for the law to take them down. The more people with whom to contend makes it a challenge to figure out where to start looking and who to approach in order to bring them to justice. Many movies glamourize organize crime, but there are serious consequences to pay if caught. Movies like “Ocean’s 11,” “Rush Hour” and “Now You See Me” give a Hollywood spin to a situation that could spell trouble for all involved if the law were to successfully intervene.
When we hear the term “organized crime,” we usually think of gangsters, drug dealers and biker outlaws like Al Capone aka “Scarface,” Pablo Escobar and Hell’s Angels. Organized crime is defined as criminal activities planned and executed by powerful groups on a large scale.

Perhaps the most popular of all the organized crime groups – and the one portrayed in numerous movies – is the Sicilian Mafia, also known as “The Mafia” or “Cosa Nostra (Our Thing).” There have been scores of movies made about this organization, most notably, “The Godfather” series. They are said to be ruthless, but they look out for each other.
The Medellin Cartel, led by Pablo Escobar, the Ochoa Vazquez brothers Jorge Luis, Juan David, and Fabio, ran drugs from South America. By 1993, the group was brought down by members of the United States and the Colombian government.
