Al Capone is a legendary gangster, romanticized as a renegade entrepreneur of sorts, but he was also one of America's most dangerous men and nothing better shows his true colors than the St. Valentine's Day Massacre exactly 85 years ago, Feb. 14, 1929

The Benghazi massacre:
1 man in charge
Having that sort of reputation is kind of priceless. People fear you and will not cross you. You stand alone, unchallenged.
Kind of like the IRS. Which, take note, was the only outfit in town that was tougher and meaner and more relentless than Al Capone.
Think about it.
“...Robert Stack will forever be Elliot Ness...”
while this was def a Capone “operation”...and he gave his ok on it, this was the work of Frank Nitti and Jack Mcgurn. In turns of organized crime hits, this was as spectacular and brazen as it gets. Even Lucky Luciano was afraid of going to Chicago. “A real GD crazy place” he called it.
The program runs often on MeTV.
The Chicago Way was perfected in method by Capone but has seen its most global application by the Obama/Jarrett/Axelrod troika.
There’s a massacre in Chicago every Saturday night.
This may be a bit off topic but the right thread to ask this question.
In a long detailed explanation of St Valentine and the history of St. Valentine's Day, Saul Alinsky's name was referenced.
The article added color by referring to occurrences related to Feb 14th. The reference to Saul Alinsky appeared in this context.
The St. Valentine's Day Massacre occurred in 1929 during the Prohibition era. Al Capone's Chicago mob murdered seven members of Bugs Moran's Irish gang.
Accompanying Al Capone's hitmen as they terrorized neighborhoods was the young Saul Alinsky, who later adapted their techniques into the political tactic of community organizing.
I am going to find out more but after seeing this post, I decided to ask her first.
Thanks in advance for any information you can share.
Found this nugget. A lot of it is from a Playboy interview in 1972 with Saul Alinsky, shortly before he died of a heart attack at age 63.
Thanks to your post, I was intrigued to find a connection to Capone and the Chicago mob.
Both Obama and Hillary are students of Alinsky; only one more degree of separation to Al Capone.
Another sign our beloved land is in mortal danger.
And....Some Like It Hot....
Also the birthday of Vic Morrow,who had appeared in two episodes of this show.
He was one of the best actors ever. I love him.
I recorded “The Maggie Storm Story” on my DVR.
Vic Morrow is in that episode and I can’t miss it.
