October 17 1931

By Patrick Van Roy On October 17th, 2020

Brooklyn native Al Capone is brought to justice after a violent criminal career, but it’s not a rival’s bullets or a murder conviction that finally does him in. The 32-year-old known as ‘Scarface’ is convicted on tax evasion charges and sentenced to a prison term of 11 years.

  8. I’m trying to work out what word he was trying to type when his finger got stuck on the E button !

  9. It’s not fair to compare Trump to Capone. Yes, they have tax-dodging in common, but Capone is what Trump’s Klan dad (and maybe Trump himself) would have referred to as a Guinea. I wonder has he ever referred to Crooked Rudy as a Guinea?


  10. That word used to be common here.

    I rarely hear it now.

  11. I first came across it in The Godfather set in the 1940s.
