Legally Insane – Episode 24
Today’s agenda is RICO; The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. Enacted by President Nixon, the Rico Act has been responsible for bringing down and trying to bring down The Hells Angeles, The Catholic Church, The Key West PD, Donald Trump and many more.
The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering, and it allows the leaders of a syndicate to be tried for the crimes which they ordered others to do or assisted them in doing, closing a perceived loophole that allowed a person who instructed someone else to, for example, murder, to be exempt from the trial because they did not actually commit the crime personally.
