The life of Al Capone
By Lucas Spanjer
Al Capone's Early life.
Al Capone had to go to school at a public school at age seven. When in sixth grade he had some trouble with school, he hated the teacher and the teacher hated him. So his teacher gave Al a hard time. Then Al got mad and decided to hit his teacher and then got expelled, after, he decided to never go back to school. Then he decided to rule the streets and be a criminal.
Al Capone had a lot of things that he bought but instead of putting it in his name he put it in his siblings and mom and dad's name so he didn't have to pay taxes (smart!). But once he had an idea to lay low and get away from his allies and the heat that was surrounding him. Al thought if he could go to jail his popularity as a criminal would die down. Capone also thought that he could put his house in his name and not pay his taxes. After two months of not paying taxes, he had to go to court. Once he was done with court he had to go to jail, and they decided he would go to Alcatraz.
