Al Capone ( 1899 - 1947 )  Category ( Gangsters ) [suggest a correction]
 

He would kill someone because of business-related practices and then spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars on flowers to send to the grieving families. He was an American gangster that most feared or simply avoided. While he lived by the gun, he would ultimately escape dying by one. Al Capone was known as the one and the only "scarface".

Born in 1899, Al Capone’s family moved to Brooklyn where he couldn’t help but grow up amidst crime and gangs. When he was a teenager, he joined two separate gangs and committed petty crimes. However, after he left school as a drop-out at fourteen years old, he worked odd jobs in Brooklyn and the lure of crime drew him in closer.

He married Mae Josephine Coughlin and they moved to Long Island. However, in 1919, Capone went to Chicago and decided to stay and work for Giovanni "Johnny" Torrio. A Brooklyn guy at one time, Torrio became very interested in Capone and the way he operated. He hired him and put him to work at the Four Deuces Bar.

Bootlegging was good to Capone and thanks to his ability to conduct business professionally; Capone quickly had everyone in his back pocket including a mayor and several people in the criminal justice system. Later, when he would go to prison for a ten-month term from 1929 until 1930, he would be placed in a cell that looked more like a corner in a speakeasy complete with regal antique furnishings.

Capone would eventually find himself at Alcatraz. Once he arrived, it didn’t take him long to figure out that he would be treated just like any other prisoner. There wouldn’t be anything that he could do for special treatment except just make the most of being a prisoner.

Al Capone died in 1947. Even though he was a gangster, he wouldn’t go out in a blaze of glory. Instead, he died because of cardiac arrest or so it is believed.
