For this one, you must deflect attention from yourself as a mob leader.
THE ORGANIZATION (any gender, mid twenties through late life)
Listen, this is about the organization. You want to crack down on me? You need to be cracking down on THEM. They're a crime organization that is... well it's everything like the gangster movies and worse.
Now I suppose you could look at my part of all this... okay:
I DID work for the organization, knowing what they were.
Quite a few rivals have been... well... they ended up deceased.
And maybe you could say that their being deceased was the result of "murder."
And before that, maybe those "murders" were suggested by my associates to "hired killers."
And before that, maaaaaaybe I suggested to my associates that they... that they have some conversations with these "hired killers", just to explore pricing and logistics for performing, you know "murder."
And maybe I DO associate with the organization's boss. Technically we ARE married, I guess.
This is all really about an ORGANIZATION. You point the finger at ME? Well... you do that and you're missing... you're missing the POINT.
