Mark Reiter

  The 1980’s, in popular culture, is infamous for over indulgence, conspicuous consumption and an explosion of nouveau riche spenders who fueled the decade’s decadent scene.  This club of new millionaires included the grossly over compensated executive, whose “capital gains” were at an all time high as inequality in the economy prevailed-  as well as the more interesting, and certainly more memorable, Drug Kingpin- who was the edgy financier of the time, boasting the same luxury items and business savvy as his legitimate counterpart.  Mark Reiter, by street standards, had the appearance of the executive. But his closer than close affiliation to top level  Gambino organized crime family capos like John Gotti- coupled with his ability to deal in the typically black business of heroin, made him a major player in the drug game during most of the 80’s.

  While movies like “The King of New York “popularize fictitious gangsters like Frank White, Reiter was living the true life version of the story.  Sole supplier for the drug organizations of notorious street dealers- cars, boats, women, murder, and cash coming in faster than could be laundered, were all part of Reiters experience in heroin.  From a business perspective, Mark Reiter could be considered a revolutionary- as his “middle man” position between the Gambino crime family and black organized crime entities, facilitated millions in financial gain on both sides for more than 7 years.  Serving a double life sentence since 1987, Reiter is a living example of the last of the true gangsters.

Noah Robinson

   Born in Greenville, South Carolina, Noah Robinson made a name for himself early on by being recognized as one of America’s “Outstanding Young Men.”

   After earning an undergraduate degree in organic chemistry, Noah began his career working for major chemical companies. During this time, Robinson achieved much success with receiving three product patents, one of which included the development of a urethane sealant that in 1966 was selected as the standard for Connecticut’s State Highway Department’s specification for roadway sealants.

   Noah, motivated by defeating the corporate glass-ceiling, enrolled for graduate studies at the prestigious Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. While there, Robinson spent time as a business consultant for small business owners in the predominately Black urban neighborhoods of Philadelphia.

   While Noah focused on his studies at Wharton, his half-brother, Jesse Jackson was making a name for himself as one of the most prominent voices for Black America during the unrest of the civil rights movement. Jesse was appointed as director of Operation Breadbasket, the Chicago extension of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC.) Noah was brought on board to assist with the commercial business division. Once graduating, Robinson moved to Chicago to eventually head the division.

   Noah’s educational background paired with his knack for enterprise and ability to connect with small business owners allowed for prosperous success for many black owned companies in Chicago. These results were so impressive, that it caught the attention of other community leaders in Detroit and Milwaukee. Robinson saw this as an opportunity to develop a tri-city network of Black business owners that sustained each other’s businesses and improved their communities by providing job opportunities.

   Though he had noble intentions, Noah was naive of the unspoken rules of politics. Members of Detroit and Milwaukee’s SCLC’s chapters took strong offense to what they felt was an invasion of their territories. It was later discovered that Noah’s commercial business auxiliary was never officially authorized by SCLC’s parent office in Atlanta. This heightened already growing tensions between Jesse Jackson, SCLC President, Rev. Ralph Abernathy and the national board. This caused Jackson to leave his post as director, later founding Operation PUSH. This unfortunately, also caused a rift in the relationship of Jesse and his brother, as Noah felt he was involved in the middle of a hostile battle that he was not privy to.

   Admittedly bitter and out to seek revenge on the business board members that soured both his reputation and the relationship with his brother, Noah set out to seek redemption by becoming a victorious entrepreneur.

   The plan that Robinson came up with was to compete in the industries that each of his rivals had stake in. One by one, Noah overtook each market of his competitors, putting some completely out of business while eventually amassing a multi-million empire that included construction, soft-drink beverage distribution and fast-food franchising.

   As impressive as Noah’s self-made success was too many, it caused questions to arise in others on whether all of Robinson’s business practices were above board. This doubt was enough to catch the attention of the IRS, who investigated Robinson, still leading the commercial association of Operation Breadbasket, and his company’s financial ties to the government funded program. Once exonerated, Noah was again back in the spotlight for alleged connections to the prominent and very dangerous El Rukn street gang of Chicago’s Southside. Robinson contested that he was unaware of any gang involvement and used this friendly alliance with the neighborhood’s “toughest guys” to protect his employees from the mischief often found in the area his businesses were headquartered in.

   The seemingly sterling image of Noah Robinson’s business empire became tarnished after a 1986 FBI sting operation that led to the arrests of 18 unlicensed security guards that were known members of El Rukn.  The guards had been operating illegally, under the guise of providing security for several legitimate businesses and also personal protection for Robinson.

   In a Federal case that was later linked to Noah and six other defendants, several former high-ranking gang members turned informants, testified that Noah played an integral part in connecting the gang with powerful drug dealers and assisted with setting up two companies to launder drug profits.

   Along with collecting large commissions from these drug deals, Robinson is said to have gained an army of hit-men that carried out a murder of one of his former employees and an attempted murder of a witness.

   In his 1992 sentencing, Noah, described as defiant, raised a clinched ‘power fist’ as he was given multiple life terms for racketeering, drug conspiracy and murder. He was also fined $6 million in an attempt to evaporate any hidden profits that he may have been hiding.

   1993 provided a sharp twist in this story when one of the most important case witnesses confessed that he was coached to lie by the chief prosecutor in exchange for special favors. Once investigated, it was discovered that the former gang members turned informants were being allowed illegal conjugal visits and smuggled drugs and alcohol while incarcerated. It was also concluded that key evidence was hidden from the defense team that would have been crucial information for their case.

   A reluctant judge threw out the previous convictions of Noah and the six other El Rukn defendants, ordering a new trial on the grounds that they did not receive a fair one. The assistant US Attorney was also eventually fired for his misconduct.

   Despite the reversal of the previous trial, Noah Robinson was again found guilty of racketeering, drug conspiracy and murder. He is currently serving life in prison with no chance of parole.

Erick  “The General”  Bozeman

   A native of South Central, Los Angeles, Erick Bozeman is said to have been a “Mastermind” in the drug world. Along with 20 co-defendants, Bozeman was indicted in July of 1994 on multiple counts of conspiracy, money laundering and a kingpin charge stemming from distributing and selling cocaine in over 10 major cities across the country. 

   According to accounts given by FBI officials, Bozeman’s lifestyle was so extravagant and lavish that it left them shocked. Operating under many aliases and the fictitious Shell Corporation, which grossed $30 million within a two year timespan, Bozeman was recorded ordering as much as 300 lbs of cocaine directly from Columbian drug sources.

   Once the cocaine made its way to Bozeman, authorities and court documents allege, it was packaged into the innards of computers and shipped out to various destinations in huge bulky packages bearing innocuous corporate logos. 

   The cocaine would be split up and sold and drug money would be transferred out of the country to the Cayman Islands, the Bahamas and Antigua, laundered and shipped or carried back to Bozeman and his lieutenants. 

   Bozeman used Los Angeles and Atlanta as hubs of a criminal enterprise that had all the trappings of a major corporation. They allege that spreadsheets, payrolls, fax machines, computer e-mail networks and other sophisticated means were used to coordinate a drug business that pulled in millions of dollars while employing dozens of associates. 

   Described as a criminal genius the case against Erick Bozeman is famed as one of the largest and most sophisticated cases prosecuted, which is why it left many surprised when Bozeman opted to represent himself in court. 

Erick’s defense platform was based on the notion that he was no different than a capitalist broker and that the reality of the situation was based on economics and that drug laws are draconian and racist in nature. Bozeman argued that the case was really based on his unwillingness to assist the government as an informant.

   Although he was eventually sentenced to life by a judge, Bozeman was able to successfully influence a hung jury into believing that the ideals of right and wrong was irrelevant in this case. His fate was determined by the D.A., who had the power to pardon him in exchange for favorable information or testimony, which he was not willing to provide. This argument proved to be a success, as Bozeman was found guilty of only 3 of the 29 initial charges he was indicted on.

   Erick is currently teaching black studies in the USP Coleman to fellow inmates that were never taught before their incarceration their history or worth.
