Supervisory Special Agent
This was revealed about three years ago -- concurrently with the infamous event known as "Mafia Takedown Day," when some 120 mobsters were arrested in their bathrobes at dawn--high noon for busting down the doors of nice, well-kept suburban homes.
The FBI historically has had one squad assigned to each New York crime family, back during those decades when they systematically dismantled organized crime in the city, the so-called golden years of the mob.
To say it another way, the FBI mob effort has been cut in half since 2008.
Which begs the question: why would the FBI so cavalierly announce this?
And raises, for this blogger, another one: what the hell is FBI special unit C-38?
