Gangster Stories

Prohibition – Breeding Ground For Smugglers And Outlaws

one of the perhaps most daring experiments in American history began in 1920. With the entry into force of the so-called Volstead Act, the production and the sale of all beverages containing more than 0.5 percent alcohol in the United States were banned. The same was true for imports and exports. So were the decades-long effort of the prohibition party and of associations such as the anti saloon League arrived at their destination.
Actually, she led 13-year ban on fire water does not cause that America was becoming a sober nation after all. Instead there was above all a massive increase in crime. In cities such as Chicago, networks of gangs, devoted to the smuggling, illegal manufacture and sale of alcohol is formed in the blink of an eye. They came to each other in the way, too often ended with wild shootouts, executions and bomb blasts. Two years after the end of the great war, another, which is limited to the United States even began.

Speakeasies – Legendary Underground Bars In America’s Cities

In the 20s in an American city who was willing to pay the high price for often dangerously bad shot, had to locate only a Speakeasy. This was illegal bars, which shot after prohibition in the United States out of the ground like mushrooms everywhere. They were in cellars, back rooms of shops or warehouses of confectionery stores.
Aim was to transport the liquor, the richness of invention knew no bounds. He took place in Dummies books, hollowed-out coconuts or garden hoses. Sometimes he was made, if necessary in a converted bathtub, right in the neighborhood itself and then sold at the next corner for money.
The visitors knew the correct password at the entrance of Speakseasy, he was allowed to enter and found himself in a bar, a club or a room with a couple of chairs. In larger Speakeasies, jazz musicians often provided for entertainment, while owners and gang members were looking for with Argus eyes informers the authorities.
When ordering, it was imperative “to speak-easy”. To avoid any reference to alcohol, ordered customers at Speakeasys mysterious drinks like “White Mule” or “Tarantula juice”. In the event that unexpectedly was a RAID on the House, there was even a secret mechanism through the button all bottles containing alcohol automatically carried into the city sewer at the legendary Club 21 in Manhattan.

Al Capone – The Rise Of The Mafia King Of Chicago

There were many in the network of gangs, bar owners, businessmen and politicians who took advantage of the prohibition to fill their pockets dazzling figures. The most famous of them occurred differently, as it was used by gangster bosses before him. Alphonse Gabriel “Al” Capone was known for his taste for tailored suits, expensive cigars and fine whiskey. The man with the piercing gaze did appreciate also female company and jewelry.
The special darn was that Capone celebrated these preferences not in quiet back rooms, but with relish before the press and public. Was raised on his “business”, the gangster boss Al Capone was Scarface, aka, very pragmatic. He just give people what they want, so was his standard response.
Behind the scenes, however, the career of the underworld King with blood was paved. In the Alphonse Capone born 1899 in Brooklyn, came from a completely unobtrusive Italian immigrant family. His criminal career started that Capone as other boys from his neighboring shafts running errands for the gangster Johnny Torrio pointed out, one of the first who understood, outward, to occur as a respectable businessman and well drawn gentleman down and bring up a criminal empire in the background.
in 1921, Capone abandoned a budding career as an accountant and was followed by Chicago Torrio. The city was not only the greatest meat plant on planet Earth, but also a center of corruption and prostitution, gambling and violence – the perfect place at this time, to become the most famous gangster of the United States.

The Wedding Of Al Capone

Capone in Chicago arrived, Torrio had thousands of Speakeasies, brothels and gambling halls under his command. The young Capone rose quickly to his right hand and his patron’s Deputy. For this he paid with a loss of security. After the murder of the dazzling competitors Dion O’banion in his flower shop a dozen unsuccessful attacks on Capone committed, who no longer went out of the House without a bodyguard.
At the height of his power, Al Capone arrived as Johnny Torrio was shot after a shopping expedition with his wife and decided to redeem the gangster career final for retirement.Now was the former errand boy, bouncer and accountant from New York of one of the most powerful men in Chicago. Soon he moved into its new headquarters Hotel Metropole, and started to presented himself to the public as a respectable businessman and benefactor.
Capone was not only associated with influential politicians and journalists Chicago. He opened also soup kitchens for the poor, attended charity events and the Opera. Behind the scenes, however, the supposed benefactor remained merciless towards rivals who threatened his empire. Whether he executed them in a club, on the street or outside her apartment Windows in the building next door, the meticulously planned killer commandos from Capone were famous and notorious.
This usually everyone in Chicago knew who was responsible for the massacre, to prove the crime boss who had a whole crowd of policemen on his payroll, settled nothing long.Even then there was a small Ganster, who had attacked one of his friends, shot himself in a bar, any conviction as he. It seemed that no one could put a stop to the most powerful crime boss in America. But soon, the wind should turn.
