Mobsters caught after 30 years!! Should they be incarcerated considering their age?


Aged, old alleged mafia mobsters in their very late 70's and in their 80's caught in NY after 30 years!! If found guilty, how should they be punished/incarcerated? Be put in with the general prison population? House arrest? Possessions confiscated? The largest heist in US history, 5 to 6 million in cash and jewelry - it was the famous Lufthansa heist (JFK Airport, Brooklyn) depicted in the movie Goodfellas.

    As a prisoner, the state, i.e., the people are paying for his health care. On probation or house arrest--and I do not mean a luxury apartment, he would be paying his own medical expenses. This was an unusual case and current rules may not be the best

    Hi bethperry,

    No one was killed or injured during the robbery itself. It was not 'till after that mobsters were killing other mobsters to either keep the money to themselves or to keep others who had knowledge of the crime from "talking".
