Prohibition Era Gangsters

  1. 1. PROHIBITION ERA GANGSTERS The 18th Amendment helped the mob make serious cash. During Prohibition the gangs in America went from reasonably rich criminals to multi-millionaires. Good Times But it was nothing like our War on Drugs. It is impossible not to get rich in this war. Yeah Congress. Cocaine dollars built half of Miami.
  2. 2. THIS MAY BE MODIFIED, ADAPTED , OR OTHERWISE REARRANGED. I PREFER YOU NOT REMOVE THE LINKS TO MY SITE: RAGING ALCOHOLIC OR ANY OF THE POLITICIAN BASHING HOWEVER, IF YOU ARE GOING TO PRESENT TO AN AUDIENCE THAT WOULD FIND IT INAPPROPRIATE, GET RID OF IT Raging Alcoholic is about addiction and recovery.

  12. 12. TOMMY LUCCHESSE Lead the Lucchese Crime Family Raging Alcoholic
  13. 13. LUCKY LUCIANO Why does Lucky not get a crime family named after him. He is the most famous of all New York mob bosses. First among equals.
  14. 14. MEYER LANSKY He was the gambling czar for the mob. He doesn’t get a crime family either. Was a gangster during Prohibition and long after it. His life long friend was Bugsy Seigel who built Las Vegas and Lansky was big into developing gambling in Cuba before Castro took over.
  15. 15. BUGSY SIEGEL Built Las Vegas for the mob. They killed him for being stupid. Very close friend of Meyer Lansky and a lot of other mafia big shots.
  16. 16. ARNOLD ROTHSTEIN Advisor to Lucky Luciano and other people, especially Jewish gangsters Major gambler – accused of fixing world series The Italian gangs seem to have been the muscle of his operation. Advised Meyer Lansky No crime family for him either
  17. 17. HERE ARE SOME OF THE MEN WHO FILLED THE ORIGINAL FAMILY BOSSES POSTITIONS How important they are depends on their biographer but all of these men were big shots in the mob. Leaders of Organized Crime. They would have been soldiers/capos during Prohibition

  21. 21. CHICAGO THE OUTFIT Raging Alcoholic
  22. 22. JOHNNY TORRIO Boss in Chicago until he retired. Al Capone worked for him Al Capone did not murder his boss to get the top spot
  23. 23. AL CAPONE The next boss of Chicago. Raging Alcoholic
  24. 24. AL CAPONE
  25. 25. CAPONE’S JAIL CELL I don’t remember which prison. Capone went to prison a few times. Also, Capone wasn’t a mafia member. He wasn’t from Sicily.
  26. 26. TONY ACCARDO One of the bosses between Capone and Giancana. Possibly even more vicious than Capone Raging Alcoholic
  27. 27. PAUL RICCA The other boss of Chicago between Capone and Giancana.
  28. 28. SAM GIANCANA Next big boss of the Chicago Outfit We are going to stop with him. It is very unlikely he was old enough to be a prohibition gangster.
  29. 29. OF COURSE PHILADELPHIA, LOS ANGELES, NEW ORLEANS, AND OTHER CITIES HAVE ORGANIZED CRIME. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ ALL THESE AREAS HAVE A MOB BOSS WHO RUNS THEM. THEY JUST DON’T GET INTO THE PAPER AS MUCH. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ IN THE MOB IT IS BETTER TO BE INVISIBLE THAN TO BE SEEN.
  30. 30. CARLOS MARCELLO He was the leader in Lousiana. Bobby Kennedy deported him to somewhere in South America and left him in the jungle with no ID or money. Marcello held a grudge the rest of his life. JFK was shot??? Who knows Would have been a soldier during Prohibition. Ran plenty of Rum from Cuba to America
  31. 31. JOSEPH KENNEDY Father to JFK and Bobby. Also a United States Ambassador $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Apparently owned a fleet of trucks and let “guys” use them to drive to Canada and pick up Seagram’s whiskey during Prohibition. SEAGRAMS DID VERY WELL DURING PROHIBITION. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ I wonder how many of our politicians are getting rich off our war on drugs. Scum bags. Maybe drug dealers pay them to keep drugs illegal so they don’t lower the profit margins.
  32. 32. CRIME FIGHTER *********** BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN INCORRUPTIBLE Arch nemesis to every rumrunner, bootlegger, gangster type violating the 18th Amendment Raging Alcoholic
  33. 33. ST. VALENTINES DAY MASSACRE Probably the most famous mob slayings of all time. The assassins pretended to be police officers and killed a rival gang. No one knows who did these killings but Al Capone profited by them.
  34. 34. PROHIBITION ERA GANGSTERS AND ONE NOTABLE LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENT From Raging Alcoholic You won’t find more on gangsters on Raging Alcoholic, it is about alcoholism, addiction, and recovery. Come visit us if you are interested.
