The Providence Journal’s front page today had a story about 18 arrests made in an effort to clean up a “criminal enterprise” in Rhode Island. Later they followed up with blog posts about more arrests having to do with organized crime.

Providence has had a reputation for a long time as being overrun with corruption and organized crime. It’s refreshing to see such a sweep across the state; putting some long overdue closure to what is hopefully a phase that has passed.

Do you feel like Providence is still full of corruption? Feel free to keep your comments anonymous.
