The Massacre & Al Capone

By: Maddie Posekany

The Massacre

A bad massacre that happened on valentine's day that there were many men left dead because of a fight over money. The gangs were in fight and a Capone knew where they were and set off an assassination to kill "fake cops". This was a negative thing, what they did was illegal and wrong and now who is going to trust a cop. This just brakes the trust of everyone to a cops because of this. Also it was not appropriate to do it on valentine's day because it does not make sense why someone would do this.

Al Capone

He was born in Brooklyn, New York, poor family and went to become a gangster. In 1920 during the high of the Prohibition, his multi-million dollar Chicago operation dominated in organized violent crimes. His most famous is the St. Valentine's Massacre which he order to assassination several rivals. By 1929 Capone dominated the illegal liquor trade in Chicago. He finally went to jail by tax evasion. The supreme court ruled he that income gained on illegal activities was taxable, which gave the government a strong case for prosecuting him. On June 5, 1931 the government finally indicated Capone on 22 counts of income-tax evasion.
