THIS SITE IS DEDICATED TO THE ST.VALENTINES DAY MASSACRE.  DURING THIS EVENT IN CHICAGO, A NUMBER OF MOBSTERS, DRESSED AS POLIECEMEN SHOT RIVAL MEMBERS OF GEORGE "BUGS" MORAN'S GANG.┬áTHE MAN WHO ORCHESTRATED THIS (ALL THE WAY IN CHICAGO) WAS IN FLORIDA THE WHOLE TIME. HIS NAME WAS AL "SCARFACE" CAPONE! THIS HAPPENED BECAUSE OF THE ONGOING RIVALRY OF THE TWO WARRING FACTIONS OF CAPONE AND MORAN, OVER WHO WOULD CONTROL THE PROHIBITION RING IN THE LATE 20'S. ┬áPROHIBITION WAS WHEN LIQUOR WAS BANNED FROM SOCIETY AND CONSIDERED ILLEAGAL. THE FEUD STARTED WHEN BOTH MORAN AND CAPONE WERE BOOTLEGGING LIQUORS AND THEN SELLING THEM ILLEGALLY TO PEOPLE. BOTH SIDES GOT COMPETITIVE AND TURNED INTO A WAR OF SORTS. AFTER THE MASSACRE OF MORAN'S MEN, AND READING A LITTLE VALINTINES DAY CARD IN HIS CAR "BUGS" STATED "ONLY CAPONE KILLS GUYS LIKE THAT". THE EVENTS THAT LED UP TO THE MASSACRE ARE AS FOLLOWS. A GROUP OF MORAN'S MEN HAD GATHERED AT THE S-M-C CARTRIDGE WAREHOUSE COMPANY ON CLARK STREET ON THE MORNING OF FEBRUARY 14TH. A DETROIT GANGSTER TOLD MORAN AND HIS MEN THAT A TRUCK WAS ON THE WAY WITH BOOTLEG WHISKEY. THEY SET A TIME TO PICK IT UP. AT THE APPOINTED TIME SEVEN OF MORAN'S MEN WAITED OUTSIDE THE WAREHOUSE. THEY HAD NO IDEA THAT A POLICE CAR HAD PULLED UP OUTSIDE, OR THAT MORAN (WHO JUST ARRIVED-LATE)SPOTTED THE CAR AND HAD QUICKLY TAKEN COVER.  HE DIDNT GET KILLED HERE HE ESCAPED. FIVE MEN GOT OUT OF THE POLICE CAR, THREE OF THEM IN UNIFORMS AND TWO IN CIVILLIAN CLOTHING. THEY ENTERED THE BUILDING A FEW MINUTES LATER, AS GUN FIRE ROSE THE NEIGHBORHOOD. THE NEIGHBORHOOD THOUGHT THE POLICE HAD JUST CAUGHT THE TWO "BAD CIVILLIANS" IN TOW!  AFTER THE INCIDENT MANY PEOPLE THAT HAD BEEN ON CAPONES SIDE QUICKLY TURNED AGAINST HIM SAYING "THIS FEUD HAS GONE ON FOR TOO LONG" AND "IT NEEDS TO END HERE". BECAUSE OF THE ST. VALENTINES DAY MASSACRE, MOB ACTS SLOWLY STARTED TO DECREASE. READ THE LINKS FOR MORE INFORMATION AND FOR PICTURE AND BIOS OF THE EVENT DESCRIBED AS BEING "THE WORST MOB HIT IN THE WORLD, EVER"!
