Describe or define organized crime
Human rights and security is threaten when there a crime is being organized. Organized crime undermines the development of the economic, social, cultural, political and different societies throughout the world. Organized crime can be develop by drug trafficking, firearms and a person with a motive. Organized crime can be established by a corrupted police officer. While some groups may have a positive influence for protection against someone who has meaningful impressive. For instance, City treasurer Cory Kemp is currently serving a 10 year sentence in federal prison for selling his office while under the administration of former Mayor John Street. Kemp was convicted of murder, drugs and money. The former mayor was not found guilty but there was a tape planted in his office in hopes to get him to confuse. Kemp intended to pay off systems of politics and the government. Corey Kemp was charged with 46 criminal counts which including conspiracy, extortion, money laundering and mail fraud (Anastasia, 2004). An organized crime is a group of people who came together to accomplish a common goal. There are several components to a successful and legitimate business even in an organized crime. According to Mallory (2007), an organized crime needs a leader for guidance and someone who will disturbed assignments. This unit will also need to have certain amount of people assigned to a supervisor who will control the operation, in order to remain focus they will also need an objective and an insulation someone with the ability to contact only their immediate boss or team members. Pyramidal structure which keeps the flow from a hierarchical chart for the more important decisions made by the boss. Principle of specialization who are the experts of the group for special job functions and something that we all need to function rules like never talking to the police unless your law is present.

The United States also has several organized crime such as the army, military and air forces. The army, military and air forces mission is to protect the citizens of America, creating and maintaining peace while they provide relief and supporting different policies and procedures around the world.
