For what they not seeing is police expect Rico
Rico act his one of the most sweeping criminal law ever. It has been custom-made for the organized crime to gain convictions and imprisoning mafiosi. The enactment of Rico back in 1970 made prosecutor’s jobs easier which helped to allay people’s fears and concerns about then raising crime rates.
The statute allows government to freeze defendant’s asset at the time of indictment and major exceptions to general due process of law principles such as innocence presumption. Conviction doesn’t requires to meet the common standard of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Once convicted, defendant faces onerous criminal penalties (there is a 20-years minimum). For the record, civil portion of the statute allows victims to file a civil suit and recover up to three times the damages they suffered.
Over the years, the statute has metastasized from its original intent as the list of crimes under RICO extended.
That list goes from murder to extortion or bribery.
Nas states that policemen and prosecutors crave for individual who engage into RICO offenses cause it will most likely result in wins on court. Engaging certain actions such as robbery and extortion, associated individuals such as “stick up kids” mentioned in Nas’s tale throw themselves in the belly of the beast for good.
