The children killed by Italian organized crime

On Sunday the corpse of a three-year-old child was found in a car in Cassano Ionio, near Cosenza. The child was killed together with his grandpa, who was under police surveillance, probably in a murder related to organized crime.

The major Italian criminal organizations claim to have sets or rules, honor codes binding their members. In the past, for example, members of Mafia were reportedly forbidden not only to hurt children, but even to commit offences in their presence. But those times, if they ever existed, are long gone.

In a infamous episode happened in 1993 Giuseppe Di Matteo, the 12-year-old son of a Mafia turncoat, was kidnapped, killed and his corpse dissolved with acid to punish the father.
