Back to that same old place

Sweet home Chicago?   …  Sweet Home Chicago, Robert Johnson 1936

 

 

5,312.  I’ll never forget that night.  I jumped out of bed, got in my car, rushed over the west side of Chicago right at the height of the riot.  I get out of the car and here is this coloured woman picks up this brick and throws it through the Pawn Shop window.  And she grabbed three pistols.  And I rushed up her and said, ‘Cool it, baby.  Don’t act like this.  You’re going to break up the whole civil rights movement.’  She said, ‘Damn the civil rights movement.  I just caught my husband with another woman and I’m going to kill him.’  (Civil Liberties & Chicago & Riot)  Dick Gregory, American black comedian

 

 

17,541.  By the time the ’20s ended he was undisputed king of the heap.  What put him there was the St Valentine’s Day Massacre.  Chicago was divided into spheres of criminal influence.  The north side was controlled by Bugs Moran, Capone’s sworn enemy.  (Gangs US: Chicago & Mafia US: Chicago & Murder Cases & Chicago)  The Story of Al Capone

 

17,542.  Inside the warehouse there was a scene of carnage.  The six members of the north side gang lay sprawled among the blood.  (Gangs US: Chicago & Mafia US: Chicago & Murder Cases & Chicago)  ibid.

17,544.  Chicago in the early twentieth century was already one of the most corrupt cities in the United States.  One classic example of this was the 1919 World Series Baseball, when a New York gangsta Arnold Rothstein bribed the Chicago White Sox to lose.  Police and politicians all took bribes.  (Gangs US: Chicago & Mafia US: Chicago & Murder Cases & Chicago & Baseball & Cheat & Bribery)  ibid.

17,547.  Tests showed that he had syphilis, no doubt passed on to him by one of his past employees.  As the years passed, Capone’s syphilis grew worse.  He gradually became paralysed and was released in 1939 for treatment.  His wife May was unaffected by the disease, which suggests that there had not been marital relations between them for a long time before his incarceration.  She looked after him at their Florida home for seven more years when he died of a stroke and pneumonia at least twenty-five years before his time at the age of 47.  Capone’s final body count is reckoned to be at least 400 men murdered at his command, and 40 by his own hand.  Even today his name is a legend for ruthlessness and corruption.  (Gangs US: Chicago & Mafia US: Chicago & Murder Cases & Chicago)  ibid.

 

 

17,548.  Al Capone rose to power with a deadly combination of raw brutality and brains.  He wanted the public to love him.  But those who dared to cross him knew better.  Killing was just part of his business plan.  A plan to become the boss of organised crime in Chicago.  (Gangs US: Chicago & Mafia: US & Murder Cases: Capone & Chicago)  Al Capone: Scarface

 

17,549.  Johnny Torrio became Capone’s mentor.  Torrio moved to Chicago to run things for Big Jim Colosimo.  Big Jim controlled a string of gambling dens and whore-houses.  Colosimo’s nightclub was where the action was.  (Gangs US: Chicago & Mafia: US & Murder Cases: Capone & Chicago)  ibid.

 

17,550.  It took five years to bring all the evidence together.  On June 5th 1931 the man known as Alphonse Capone was indicted on twenty-two counts of income-tax evasion.  (Gangs US: Chicago & Mafia: US & Murder Cases: Capone & Chicago)  ibid.
