* StockholmSyndrome: An interesting reverse case in "Arsenal". A mobster comes to feel for his captives after they treat him as more than an animal, going so far later on as to try and save them when he's ordered by Nitti to execute them.

Added DiffLines:

* RewardedAsATraitorDeserves: Mobsters who betray or sell out who they work for tend to be paid off in this way by their new employers, because if they turned so easily against their former bosses then it's likely they'd eventually do so with them as soon as a better offer came along.

* RealityEnsues: In "The Unhired Assassin", the husband and owner of a dry cleaning shop gives a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown to the hoodlum responsible for collecting protection money in that area (at that time he was just bothering his wife, though). Said hoodlum doesn't go away but just comes back a few days later and murders him, and by using a kid to do so at that.

The only saving grace is that he's immediately caught and will more than likely be sentenced to death in one way or another, whether by prison or Nitti.

* MurderIsTheBestSolution: The Tri-State Gang kills everyone they hijack to keep anyone from identifying them. What's cruel is that they trick the drivers into thinking they'll let them live by covering their faces with a hood and chaining them to a tree, only to shoot them dead before they leave. What eventually leads to their downfall is that, in one case, they were too quick to leave the scene to check whether the driver was actually dead so he was able to give the license place of the gang's truck later.

* KillHimAlready: The plots and problems of many episodes would be resolved in a matter of minutes if anyone had the nerve to just wipe out whatever set of gangsters is causing problems.


Added DiffLines:

* VigilanteExecution: Averted, because the plots of many episodes would be resolved in a matter of minutes if anyone had the nerve to just wipe out whatever set of gangsters is causing problems. It's generally always Ness and Co. that take them down, but not before they've caused a lot of damage.
