Brotherhood's more than a gang, it's a virus. Inside the prisons and out.
11 December 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

A girl was about to give birth on a dark alley when her boyfriend noticed a man died on a staircase. The victim was a piece of work who spent more time inside the jail than outside. He was a member of the Aryan brotherhood and when he was not behind bars he lived with his troubled sister. Detectives realized he had an argument with his former girlfriend at a pizza parlor because she left him; anyway her new fiancée (Marco Verna) was too scared of the criminal and he had a poker alibi that night. Later on, detectives found out the victim used to threaten a correction officer; the poor C.O. became the target of all the brotherhood gang, by receiving menace letters and anonymous calls; they even managed to set his son up in a drug bust. After the murder weapon had been found (a kind of gun stolen months before at the prison), the officer was locked up. Anyway it's hard to deal with this kind of gang (they threatened even the judge's life) and the verdict is not an easy one.

Writers want to show us that sometimes a criminal association can put all the criminal justice system at stake, when it becomes too strong at the point to subdue policemen and lawyers to its own will. That's what usually happened at trials against "Cosa Nostra" members.
