Al Capone is America's best known gangster of the 1920s, he would earn105 million dollars per year from alcohol and rackets during the prohibition era. Today this would be equivalent to 1.4 billion dollars a year. He committed many crimes such as robbery, murder, stealing, bribery etc. Not only was he known for doing bad things, but he was known for doing very genourous things, like giving the poor food or clothes, but the only way he was able to do that was by going to shops and asking for them in a mean way because he was very known for being powerful, so he would always get his way.
