    "racketeering." Racketeering is "the organized and systematic extortion of money by means of violence or fear from legiti-mate business men and workers as well as from illegitimate enterprises."2 2Thomas E. Dewey, Racketeering, Encyclo-paedia Britannica, Book of the Year, , p. [ ]. On Octo , the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (18 U.S.C. §§ –), commonly referred to as the "RICO Act", became United States law. The RICO Act allowed law enforcement to charge a person or group of people with racketeering, defined as committing multiple violations of certain varieties within a ten-year period.

An important necessity in the daily lives of both urban and suburban residents, one could not imagine life without the removal of the daily waste and rubbish that every human being steadily creates.   As far as racketeering goes I have read rumors that it is actually Author Solutions that is involved in racketeering and that they use the books as a money laundering scheme for the Mafia.

      Defense lawyers attacked the integrity of the prosecution and its witnesses in four days of spirited summations last week in a trial about racketeering charges in the window-installation industry.   Congress could stop the nuclear closures with a big climate bill, but Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, is a big supporter of the coal industry and will let no such bill through that body.
