- Note for the day, post 5/24/11, or "thought for the day/the U.S. Capital building and non-Euclidean geometries!", about Democracy has been updated! I think I'll post more ganglands. This is amazing. These ganglands give great frontrow seats on the formations of cults/religions. Understand that cults are gangs with mythology and religion is just a big cult, and these gangland videos are a goldmine! The first gangland video is remarkable because it shows that the first 'Lethal Weapon' plot actually had a real life story incarnation!
Highlights I found in this episode,
"It's o.k. for people to respect you. But when they fear you, now you got the power." - Frank Lucas
"We ruled that with an iron fist." - Nicky Barnes
They had a chain of command, and ruled by violence. Frank Lucas learned fear rules by the Ku Klux Klan. "Anybody can die for no reason" - Frank Lucas.
Frank learned gangster life from a Bumpy Johnson. Bumpy learned from the Sicilian mafia(most of the Mafia of the early 1900s were Sicilians).
