Dillinger was a very important factor to the FBI's extistence in the thirties. It's true, with Congress breathing down the Bureau's neck the FBI was in trouble. Hoover needed a big catch to save the Bureau. His Target, John Dillinger, the most sought after and publicized criminal of the times.

Tools Of The Trade

The most famous and legendary outlaws of the nineteen hundreds were The John Dillinger Gang, Charley Floyd alias, Pretty Boy Floyd, Lester Gillis, alias Baby Face Nelson, Bonnie & Clyde, Ma Barker & her boys, Alvin Karpis, Machinegun Kelly, Al Capone and several others who would attract the attention of the public by newspapers and radio. Most of these criminals preferred the Thompson machine gun as one of the most popular tools of the bank robbing or mob activity. These well known criminals would also attract the attention of the FBI and police officers across the country who fancied .45 and .38 caliber, as well as the Thompson. 

 

CHICAGO, The Windy City

Chicago was roaring during the nineteen twenties and thirties. Especially during the prohibition era when speakeasies and whore houses were very popular. Prohibition was making the Mob filthy rich while crime and corruption became the laws of the street. Al Capone was one of the best known bootleggers in the business and perhaps the most powerful man in Chicago. Capone owned most of Chicago, with the Mayor, Judges, Policemen, politicians and several other high ranking officials on his payroll. With a friendly smile and a quick handshake Capone gave the people what they wanted and lots of it. Some see Capone as a bad guy, while others see him as a good guy, or a business man? One thing is for certain, he was a bad guy with with a heart.

Historical Fact:

Let it be known that during the great depression era, over two thirds of America were unemployed with no work to be found. This was at a time when families were large, and there was no sort of birth control of any kind on the market. 

 To add to the already bad situation, the country was hit hard by huge dust bowls and long droughts. Next Locus began traveling down from Northern Canada to Southern Texas wiping out crops in huge numbers. By 1933, banks failed and many people lost everything. Religious groups gripped their bibles tight and prayed for salvation, believing this was the end of the world.

Good honest men often turned to crime to feed their families. And while the Government sat around and did nothing to help the starving, Mr.Al Capone was generously feeding over 3,000 people daily with warm bowls of soup.  

It's true experts try to say Capone was just merely trying to polish over his bad guy image, but regardless...Al Capone was feeding the poor while the Hoover sat in the white house and basically ignored the problems are country was facing. He was soon replaced by President Roosevelt.
