Jajuan Hondras's insight:

This website talks about John Dillinger's life. He was born June 22nd, 1903 in Indiana. His mother died when he was only 4 years old. this may be the reason that he became a criminal. As a teenager he was always in trouble for fighting & petty thefts. He quit school to work in a machine shop , when he found out that working wasn't for him he started robbing. His first robbery was when he robbed a grocery story with his friend Ed. They got caught the next day they got caught. John was sentence 10-20 years. This was also his first time breaking out of jail , he got caught in a few minutes though. Dillinger was paroled on MAy 10th , 1933 after his dad fought to get him out of jail.

 

On June 10th of 1933 John robbed his first bank. He robbed them for $10,000. He robbed the New Carlisle National Bank. Soon after this he was captured. They sent him to a jail called Lima. The police found a document that was about Fillinger escaping. He denied every thing. John Dillinger robbed 12 banks in total. The most amount of money he took from a bank was $74.000 , this was tooken from Central National bank.

 

John Dillinger suffered a brutal death. He was shot 4 times all around his body. He was killed in a theatre called the Biograph theatre. two women got shot but they were okay.

Jajuan Hondras's insight:

This website is about Al Capone. His real name is Alphonso Gabriel Capone & he was born January 17, 1899. This website tells about his early life and life after he turned into a criminal. He was born to Italian immigrants in Brooklyn. Capone was involved in gang activity at a young age after he was expelled from school at age 14 after hitting a female teacher in the face. He moved to Chicago to take advantage of a new opportunity to make money smuggling illegal alcoholic beverages into the city during Prohibition.


Alot of people believed that Capone ordered the 1929 Saint Valentine's Day Massacre in the Lincoln Park neighborhood on Chicago's North Side. Details of the killing of the seven victims in a garage at 2122 North Clark Street (then the SMC Cartage Co.) and the extent of Capone's involvement are widely disputed. No one was ever brought to trial for the crime. The massacre was thought to be the Outfit's effort to strike back at Bug's Moran's North Side gang. They had been increasingly bold in hijacking the Outfit's booze trucks, assassinating two presidents of the Outfit-controlled Unione Siciliana, and made three assassination attempts on Jack McGurn, one of Al's top enforcers To monitor their targets' habits and movements, Capone’s men rented an apartment across from the trucking warehouse that served as a Moran headquarters. On the morning of Thursday February 14, 1929, Capone’s lookouts signaled gunmen disguised as police to start a 'raid'. The faux police lined the seven victims along a wall without a struggle then signaled for accomplices with machine guns. The seven victims were machine-gunned and shot-gunned. Photos of the massacre victims shocked the public and damaged Capone's reputation. Federal law enforcement worked to investigate his activities.

 

Al Capone did alot of crimes in the city of Chicago. He went to jail for Tax evasions though. When on trial he tried to bribe the jury. someone knew what he was trying to do & they mixed the jury. On October 17th the judged sentenced him to 11 years in jail. During his early months in jail he was given special priveleges. On August 11, 1934 he was sent to Alcatraz. Al Capone was parroled on November 16th , 1939. He wanted to continue his criminal lifestyle but due to his sickness he could not. On January 25th, 1947 he died in his mansion surrounded by his family.
