BACKPAGE ARREST

During Prohibition, it was well known Al Capone, and the Mafia he was a part of, would routinely use the police to shut down their "competitors", i.e., anyone who wasn't a part of the mob. Now remember, this country didn't acknowledge the "mob" even existed back then. The existence of the mob wasn't "officially" recognized until Joe Valachi stepped up to confess it's existence in the 1960's. Yes these mobsters were arrested - individually. Even Al Capone himself was only arrested on income tax evasion. The film "The Untouchable's" was about the fact no one in law enforcement, or otherwise, could go after these guys because of how they had the police force, and politicians, under their control. This is why we created the "racketeering" laws in fact because arresting even Al Capone himself didn't shut down the "operation" which was flooding the country with bootleg booze. Well welcome to
