Reign of Terror: A Look at the American Gangster

Published

on

The 1920s were a deadly time. Prohibition and the Great Depression went head-on, creating a violent battleground of corruption in the US. Passed in 1920, the 18th Amendment banned the manufacturing, sale, and consumption of alcohol, which led to a growth in speakeasies and bootlegging—and plenty of organized crime.

We’ve all heard of Al Capone, guilty of murder, bootlegging, gambling, and prostitution operations. The infamous duo Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were gunned down by officers on May 23, 1934, after bank theft, robbery, and murder. Los Angeles mob boss Mickey Cohen was another big name. Arrested for tax evasion (guilty of murder and more), he served time in Alcatraz only to die of stomach cancer at 62.

However, at the same time, Trump’s popularity continues to soar. With less than two months to go to the presidential elections, several polls put Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump neck and neck in the race for the White House.

With his track record for controversy and un-political correctness, we decided to put together an infographic showing the reasons why so many people like Trump:

After 29 years of operation, the prison closed its doors in 1963. In 1972, it became a National Park. Walk through Alcatraz today and you’ll be reminded of its violent past. When it comes to safety and security, would you have had what it takes to survive the times?
