Could crime flourish on a national, even international level without help from politicians?
Former NSW assistant police commissioner Clive Small says the Calabrian organized crime group known as the ‘Ndrangheta now poses more of a threat than ever before to Australia. Small blames politicians and police for allowing the Italian mafia to flourish in Australia.
What he doesn’t reveal is that compared with the Russian Mafia, which is powerful enough to control the entire political game in Australia, the Calabrians are merely juvenile delinquents.
