RICO act & Joe Yanni

Jesse Ventura and Brigida Santos discuss the history of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. Today, RICO is rarely used to prosecute the mob. Instead, it’s used to criminalize communities of color. Attorney Joe Yanni talks about the Department of Justice’s RICO case against the Mongols Nation motorcycle club, and what the outcome means for the First Amendment.
