Organised crime isn't as glorious as it seems. No matter how much money a gangster makes from his criminal enterprise, there is always the possibility that one day he will get prosecuted and imprisoned. It's not really fun living with that possibility. So what is the prudent thing to do? Go legit, of course. This trope plays an important role in crime-based films and shows. Particularly, we will see the struggle of the gangster trying to convert his ill-gained wealth into a honest enterprise, the impact of that struggle on the gangster's pals and kins, and the response from the police. Truth in Television, but No Real Examples, Please!
