The Detroit Mob is one of the only crime families who truly kept things Sicilian, which is why they were so much more successful than other American Mafia groups into the 21st century, even New York and Chicago. One of the downfalls of the American Mafia is that it has become too Americanized, in which the Toccos and Zerillis refused to follow suit. The leadership also encouraged members to marry into each others' families, which guarded against informants and infiltrators. The Detroit Mob is truly a family affair, in more ways than one.
