Not 1 but two legends in the law enforcement community. I was introduced to these guys through Ralph Friedman and our conversation. The first Bob Starkman is a man with 38 years in law enforcement, 25 of those being in US Customs. His career has produced numbers such as 3000+ kilos of Cocaine 6+ tons of Marijuana, and 12+ million in seized funds. He was the real deal Miami Vice working during the volatile Cocaine Cowboy days. He also is a Junior College Basketball Hall of Fame coach. The second legend tonight is Joe Pistone, you might know him better by his undercover name of Donnie Brasco. During a 6 year deep undercover investigations Joe was able to infiltrate at least two of the Big 5 Mafia families. His investigations led to 200 indictments and over 240 convictions, a devastating blow by any means to the organized crime. His investigations also led to a $500,000.00 bounty placed on his head.
