2. Is it true that the sanitation industry is all mobbed-up? Or is it just a myth...

Is it true that the sanitation industry is all mobbed-up? Or was it? Or is it just a myth... because I've been watching the Sopranos too much?

In any case... surrounding him with smelly garbage trucks is totally appropriate.

6. There is definitely some truth to it. It has long been known that Waste Management

has been almost synonymous with the mafia. Most of the workers are Teamsters. Here is one article that discusses it.

9. Two parts to that story

First, in New York City, the Department of Sanitation is responsible for garbage collection, recycling collection, street cleaning, and snow removal. Their nickname is New York's Strongest.

Second, private collection for businesses are handled by private firms that have long been rumored to be run by the mob.

16. Here in MI, a big trash company got busted

for bribery. They had an Italian last name, but not sure about mob connections. Luckily, the politicians who took the bribes got busted, too.

Because I do love those kitties.

17. It's actually pretty standard...

to use those big NYC Sanitation Dept. trucks to block off streets for temporary security measures where they might be afraid of a car bomb or the like.

But it does seems extra appropriate with Trump, though.
