thevirginside makes the claim albanians are no more violent than any other group. so let's see how the officials stand with or against him...
Office report warns that the Albanian clans are exceptionally vicious and. “make the Italian Mafia look like a whist drive.”
Russians had been extremely violent at
(in the former Soviet Union), the high levels
of violence had not been exported to the rest of
Europe. The Albanians, though, had introduced a
degree of violence and ruthlessness which had
never been seen in most of the European countries.
(meaning outside their native country!)
FBI officials said Russian and many other organized crime groups operating in the United States are much more sophisticated and less violent than the Albanians.
"That guy's crazy," Coonan said. All them f------ Albanians are crazy."
"The Albanian criminals were special from the beginning,"
Marcelli, an organized-crime investigator for the Italian government. "When
they started appearing here in 1993, they were much different than other
immigrants. They have strong motivations and are very violent. Some of them
actually pulled machine guns on the son of an Italian Mafioso.
"To do that in Italy is unbelievable."

Ten years ago, few people knew anything about Albania. Today, its gangsters have become so notorious for violence they give even Italian mobsters pause.
"Pushing the 'Ndrangheta out of the prostitution in the north of Italy was probably a mistake, but the Albanians are very violent
"The Albanian mafia is especially violent," said Cataldo Motta, a Mafia prosecutor in the province of Puglia in southern Italy
"Both the Mafia and Albanians are violent but at least the Mafia has some rules," went on the man, who was shot by local mafiosi in a dispute two years ago. "The Albanians don't care about life at all, they'll kill you without reason."

A 1996 murder of a waiter, Jonathon Segal, and a bouncer, Michael Greco, in New York's Scores restaurant illustrates the indifference and haste with which Albanian assassins kill: two ethnic Albanians employed as Gambino family assassins opened fire on the waiter and bouncer after instigating an argument over quality of service they got in the restaurant

Poles will deal with "just about anybody. Dominicans. Blacks. Italians. Asian street gangs. Russians. But they won't go near the Albanian mob. The Albanians are too violent and too unpredictable."
-- clannish, secretive, hypersensitive to any kind of insult and too quick to use violence for the sake of vengeance.
“Albanian extremist crime groups have emerged in the city and became more active. So far, we cannot say whether these groups dominate, but they commit the cruelest felonies,”

Similar scenarios in Italy and Germany have led to violent clashes, with the Albanian gangs demonstrating that they are incomparably ruthless and heavily armed.
"The ethnic Albanian mafia is very powerful and extremely violent," said Kim Kliver, chief investigator for organized crime with the Danish National Police. "If you compare them to the Italian Mafia, the Albanians are stronger and not afraid of killing."

Violence within the Albanian community can be particularly brutal, whether related to orginized crime or not.

More so, the dense activity of this Albanian criminal core federated into real
mafias, their violence and their mobility, make them very disturbing and must
push us to act rapidly.
