You mean the fame that Odessa had for being a gangster city, was undeserved? Or that it was cleaned up as of the late Soviet period?

Undeserved? You remind me of this conversation I had with this guy from Austria a month ago. He is a firm believer that Protocols of Zion is not a fake. His main argument is that Jews got a rough deal in history and there has to be something to justify it. Like I said, pull up crime statistics if you want to support your claim of Odessa being crime central.

Yeah, I'd like to see the stats, but whenever a story breaks out about "Russian" mafia, most of the time there are Jewish names. But they could be not from Odessa, LOL!

Oh? Russia mafia in russia? Or russian mafia in USA?

Do you know of any source? You haven't explained why Odessa was famous for gangsterism. For no reason?

"Russian" mafia in USA, of course.
