how does the entertainment interest hinder the accuracy of the public's perceptions of demestic and international orgaized crime?
3 ophelious Teacher Community / Jr. College Editor, Expert, Dickens, The Bard I'm not sure I like the word "hinder" here. [ That implies that people are trying to have an accurate understanding of organized crime and that Hollywood is resisting that. I don't think most folks really care if their perception is off a bit or not. Law enforcement officials know the truth, and that's what really

The media focuses on "unique characters," while most members of organized crime are probably pretty dull individuals who scam just enough to get by. ]
