It's still illegal in this country, but it's also the oldest business known to mankind. Don't you need a piece of it if you wish to rule the criminal underworld? It's certainly a necessity in The Godfather II, and you'll watch the main character take over a brothel in this Comic-Con 09 demonstration. This is pretty brutal: he simply walks in and starts firing, taking down all the guards and eventually gaining control of one of the girls. He finds her weak spot (jabs and punches), extracts some money, and then enforces his will. ...yep, that's organized crime.
