60 Minutes on UCLA's Liver Transplant for Yakuza Crime Boss

| by DeepDiveAdmin

60 Minutes aired a startling piece Sunday on the questionable
liver transplants received by Japanese crime bosses at UCLA Medical Center during 2000-2004. Despite a long list of in-need American patients ahead of him, Tadamasa Goto, described as
Japan's John Gotti, received a liver in just six weeks after allegedly paying upwards of $1 million in cash. Dotting her story with compelling details of the Yakuza subculture, reporter Lara Logan explains how a well-known foreign criminal received excellent medical care--perhaps at the expense of innocent Americans.
