I say supposedly because we have no proof they ever did anything wrong and the ones who actually did serve jail time were framed. Organized crime in America is a myth.

Im not even sure boxing actually exists.

Reminds me of the sketch in the '60s movie DIVORCE AMERICAN STYLE

Robert Morse's character -- with extreme seven year itch -- admires how Walter Mathau's character is constantly philandering and never gets caught.

When Morse asks Mathau how he does it. Mathau says, "just deny it 'n keep denying no matter how red-handed you are"

So Morse sees how successful mathau has been and he decides ta use the strategy just in case he gets caught.

Sure enough his wife bursts in on him and Jayne Mansfield, both naked in a hotel room. She says, "what's the meaning of this? "What? Morse says, while he and Mansfield slowly get dressed 'n straighten the bed

"This. You. Naked, having ***?

"What ***? I wasn't having ***," as they both donned their last articles of clothing 'n bid each other farewell.

He settled into a chair and started reading. His wife was beyond perplexed (where her eyes playing tricks on her?)

The moral: Deny Deny Deny

That reminds me of a story from my own life. Im a bit ashamed to admit it but when I was a kid I had a friend who was a thief. Breaking in to houses, cars, shoplifting, the whole nine yards. I went along with him for a time and got into some of that.

We almost got caught once and I told him I thought we should give it up and come clean. He said I was crazy and that even if he got caught red handed he would deny it and keep denying it. He said even if you are guilty as sin the more you deny it the more doubt your create.
