"Of course, the example that always comes up when people deal with this topic, Prohibition. It made criminals out of people as varied as my Great Grandma (bathtub gin maker) and Joe Sixpack who wants a beer after work. It ALSO triggered the rise to power of the Mafia, always a criminal organization, but relatively speaking, lower key. Of course, before they repealed prohibition, Mafioso like Al Capone were all household names, murders were so common that it took a massacre to make the news." (04/17/11)
