The Mafia Court
Corruption in Chicago
By John Russell Hughes
An investigation into the underground crime world and its mainstream effects
This rigorous examination of the court system is presented from a practical, citizen-based perspective and fueled by the firsthand anecdotes shared with the author by a member of the Mafia in Chicago. Touching upon the history of mob influence, including the dealings of infamous Al Capone, the book asserts both the positives and negatives of organized crime participants who are also functioning members of the Chicago community. It makes claims about the ways in which corruption can develop in a court system, and offers lessons through example on how deep corruption could be in Chicago during various periods and what motivation and opportunity there is for citizens to avoid such court corruption.
