The Chicago Outfit was always a fascinating mob family. They never went by a formal name such as The Capone crime family or the Accardo crime family. Theyve always been known as simpy the syndicate or the Outfit. Very few of the top guys are household names like the NY and other east coast families. They were so powerful in their heyday, that they even had the feds confused as to who was the actual capo di tutti capi. Recent reports put the membership at like 20 or so guys, which seems weak as hell. I'm wondering if these guys are even a force anymore. Can anyone shed some light on the current status and influence of this once powerful crime group?

First,the Outfit was ever different from the other crime families because even in his heyday let that non-italians had the same respect and power that had the made men so even small in numers that have a large numbers of associates;
Second,they had more political power that the other family and until Pat Marcy arrest in the 1980s they controlled the First Ward of Chicago;
Third,the fact that the outfit never had a clear rule on the induction ceremony doesnt let to understand the exact numbers of made men: the FBI say that there are a core group of 28 made men but in other charts there are listed 4 capos and more than 40 made men;
Four:there weren't like in the 1980s where made milions with the skim from Las Vegas but they are active and had an alliance with the Outlaws MC so maybe was few considered the Chicago area but not on the ropes and very active.

They still have the reputation and some influence, but in modern organized crime they have become marginal, Chicago's 'public enemy number one' is the Mexican El Mencho.

The question is "Is LCN in Chicago on the ropes? " not "who is the top dog in chicago?"

For sure the Outfit wasnt strong enought to afraid the LE but for sure is more active respect the small numbers of made men only that his power is built also on the non-italian members that had more consideration and respect that in the other families.
The Detroit mob had the same side but are only a gambling ring compared to the outfit.
