    I would also think that “crack-down” brings in the sense of breaking as well. Breaking the criminal group. I think of that sense especially when I see it used in reference to organized crime

  2. Ken:

    Step on a crack, break your mother’s back.

    It might also break your mother’s heart if you became a plumber and had a bad case of “plumbers crack”.

  3. Jerry in suburban Washington D.C.:

    I was the original questioner and I was curious as to the preposition in crackdown also. I know the power structure would not be cracking up about the wrongdoing or violation in question, but why not cracking in, cracking into or cracking off?
