San Quentin State Prison (SQ) is a California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation state prison for men, located north of San Francisco in the unincorporated town of San Quentin in Marin County, U. Opened in July 1852, San Quentin is the oldest prison in California.
Smuggling is a behavior that has occurred ever since there were laws or a moral code that forbade access to a specific person or object.
At the core of any smuggling organization is the economic relationship between supply and demand.
The state's only death row for male inmates, the largest in the United States, is located at the prison.
In several drug-producing or transit countries, drug traffickers have taken advantage of local corruption and lack of law enforcement to establish cartels turning in millions if not billions of dollars each year.
Most often, prison gangs are responsible for any drug, tobacco or alcohol handling inside correctional facilities.
Furthermore, many prison gangs involve themselves in prostitution, assaults, kidnappings and murders.
Sometimes if government enforcement is particularly poor, the cartels become quasi-paramilitary organizations.
Italian immigrants to the United States in the early 20th century formed various small-time gangs which gradually evolved into sophisticated crime syndicates which dominated organized crime in America for several decades.
The term Russian Mafia, 'mafiya' or mob is a blanket (and somewhat inaccurate) term for the various organized crime groups that emerged in this period from the 15 former republics of the USSR and unlike their Italian counterparts does not mean members are necessarily of Russian ethnicity or uphold any ancient criminal traditions, although this is the case for some members.
