They dressed for their times, so do they now. It's a culture difference. The Micks felt need to dress to impress and pretend they had class thru their wardrobe, the current dress to intimidate and care less about impressing. It serves a purpose and achieves its goal. However I agree, I liked the old suits.

Well, whats see. The old ones were truely organized crime. The new ones are a bunch of uneducated morons that are doped up on drugs.

The old ones had a certain amount of class (the carried themselves in a certain way, dressed nice, and generally tried to be inteligent). The new ones let their pants hang down to their knees, speak in some foreign language that I can only assume to be stupidese, and generally act like idiots.

The old gangsters generally hit what they aimed at. The new gangsters hit everything, and everyone that they were not aiming at because they are too stupid to realize that it's hard to aim a gun when it's held sideways.

The old gangsters more the most part tried not to get the public in their crosshairs, and generally looked down on killing innocent people. The new gangsters don't give a damn, and it's common for innocent people to be killed by them.

The old gangesters only saw green. The new gangsters see black, white, brown, yellow, and red, and shoot accordingly.

The old gangsters kept their mouths shut about who there were, and what they did. The new gangesters shoot their mouths off about it constantly, and rap about it.

I am not saying that either type of gangster is good. I'm just saying the the old gangsters are better than the new ones.

Those here who think the 'old' gangsters are better, seriously need a history lesson.

There's a reason the public demanded an FBI...

The old gangsters built cities, ergo Las vegas. The new ones ruin every where they are.

Lastly, the old ones hung out with Sinatra, these new gangstas hang out with Barrack Obama.

But... Blame Hollywood. Same as pirates. Now it's all whitewashed and dumbed down, and presented as nostalgic.

You must speak of a gangster I never heard of. The movies sensationalize and glorify, don't be a Hollywood victim.

Was this formed by personal experience with each type? Or developed by research?

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

As I said before, I am not trying to defend them, only say that the old ones are better than the new ones. And IIRC, a lot of the gangsters of the 30s were cheered on by the public. You know, they were stealing from the rich during a time when most were poor.
I also never said they did anything I listed perfectly. Did civilians get caught in the crossfire? Yes they did.
And no, I'm not getting my facts from Hollywood. A lot of them are from documentaries. Not the Hollywood kind either.
