What is the 'rico act' as refered to in sons of anarchy? love him more!!!

The R-I-C-O in RICO Act stands for Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations. It's an often controversial law that law enforcement organizations use to combat organized crime.

The law says that a criminal organization can't make money from a legal business, and allows the government to confiscate even these legal assets.

The objective of the RICO act is to cripple the illegal organization, cutting off all avenues of cash that can support the criminal activities.
