Busting the Mob

Last night I watched The History's Channel's documentary Busting the Mob. It is about the key role electronic surveillance played in the arrests of heads of New York's major crime families in the 1980s.

It was really 15-20 minutes (at the most) worth of information spread out into 45 minutes. It wasn't that insightful and didn't raise any interesting questions. I watched it because I am considering using it in a class I will be teaching in the Fall. I still might show a little bit of it. Particularly if I include (which I will) readings on organized crime.
