Description by OLDIES.com:

Return to the violent years of the Prohibition Era in these true stories of New York's notorious gangland bootleggers, bookmakers, thugs and killers -- straight from the man who arrested them all. Based on the memoirs of Detective Barney Ruditsky, commanding officer of the city's famed Gangster Squad, The Lawless Years focuses on organized crime and high-profile gangsters, as did The Untouchables, which debuted the very same year.

THE BLOOD BROTHERS: An immigrant mother raises an orphan along with her own son, and the two grow up to be a notorious team of mob hit men.

THE DISINTEGRATION: Mob kingpin Louie 'K' shocks a meeting of syndicate leaders by announcing that he is retiring.

THE IMMIGRANT: After finding a stolen handgun in her son's room, a desperate mother begs Detective Ruditsky to intervene and turn her boy away from a gangster life.

THE KID DROPPER: When a child is slain by crossfire during a syndicate hit, the press and public pressure Ruditsky and the detectives to put and end to mob violence.
