Organized Crime inside the American Prison System


It’s intimidate or be intimidated. It’s organized crime inside our prisons. If you’re not an ally of the Mexican Mafia or the Aryan Brotherhood, you’re their enemy.

Who Controls Our Prisons?

In addition to the panelists, the presentation will include excerpts from an exclusive interview, conducted by The Mob Museum, with a former Mexican Mafia member.


  • Robert Marquez, authority on prison gangs and former agent with the California Department of Corrections
  • Richard Valdemar, retired Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy and internationally known expert on LA gangs, the Mexican Mafia and other prison gangs.
