Mobsters - 'Murder, Inc.'
16 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There wasn't a group like them before, or since - that's "Murder, Inc.," discussed (and shown, with some gory photos) in this one-hour show on the famous underworld organization.

They murdered hundreds of people in the 1930s, many of them fellow gangsters with hits ordered by Louis Lepke Buchalter who, after aborting a plan to kill New York Prosecutor Tom Dewey (who later ran for President), he killed off anyone who might squeal on him.

"Murder Inc." were the hit men for the "National Crime Syndicate," as we learn in this episode.

The mobsters are all either Jewish or Italian and it all began in a tough Jewish area of Brownsville, in Brooklyn. Names included Abe Relas, Harry Maione, Harry Strauss, Frank Abbandando. And then there was the famous Dutch Schultz, who met a very unpleasant ending to his life.

The most shocking person in this story, however, turns out to be Relas., one of the biggest thugs in Murder, Inc., but the one who turns informant and ruins the rest of the mob. In the end, this famous group of butchers got what was coming to them.

All in all, a very informative hour-long show. For some, you might beware of some graphic photos in this episode.
