There was a complication with my newborn daughters health. I have to be out again today. I should definitely be back tomorrow. Today you will be doing some prep work to give yourselves background knowledge on the organized crime groups  we will be looking at in this unit. Answer the questions about each organizations below. Research on your phones if you can. If you cannot then answer using the best of your knowledge/ reasoning skills.
