Joe Bruno on the Mob – 73 Big Time Gangsters Nabbed in Scotland

 

I guess I was being naive, but I never realized Scotland had such a major organized crime problem, and a huge drug problem too.

When I think of the Scottish people, I think of big, burly guys walking around in kilts, playing the bagpipes, and wearing no underwear. (I know, a ghastly thought.)

Or Scottish men with great, white beards eating an abomination called haggis. (I ate haggis once. It’s like chewing on a rosin bag. Only not as tasty.)

Or, maybe when I think about Scottish people I think of comedian Robin Williams doing his fall-down-funny skit about a Scottish guy explaining the game of golf. Only you can’t understand a word Williams says, because he’s fall-down drunk. (This skit is on Utube. You really have to see it. Funniest comedy routine ever)

However, I digress. As usual.

In seems the Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency (SCDEA) arrested 195 people in 2010-11, including 73 serious offenders known as “level 3” criminals.

This is a major haul, guys. And something to be extremely proud about.

But is you really want to punish these bastards in jail, make them eat haggis, all three meals a day. Then as an added punishment, give them a midnight snack of haggis too.

That will rehabilitate these high-profile gangsters real quick.

You can bet on it.

Scotland’s crime fighting agency captured 73 high-profile gangsters in the past year, its director said.

The Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency (SCDEA) said it is taking more drugs off the streets and capturing more criminals than in previous years.

The agency’s annual report showed that in 2010-11 it arrested 195 people, including 73 serious offenders known as “level 3” criminals, compared with 136 the previous year.

They included major players in the drug trade, such as Sohaib Qureshi, who trafficked cocaine in Scotland, the Caribbean and South America. He was jailed in March for 12 years after Operation Klaxon.

SCDEA director general, Deputy Chief Constable Gordon Meldrum, stated in the report: “In 2010-11 we arrested 195 people, 73 of whom were level 3 criminals: the ringleaders of organised crime.

“Making those arrests at this level is increasingly important in order to target those at the top of the criminal hierarchy and disrupt their chain of command.”

According to the report, SCDEA seized 1,376kg of illegal drugs worth £33 million in 2010-11. This included 80.5kg of class A drugs, worth around £21 million.

Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill said: “I am delighted to see that work led by the SCDEA over the last year has continued to cut right to the core of illegal activities by groups operating in Scotland.

“Every arrest made related to serious organised crime is a step towards getting these despicable groups out of our communities.”
