Windy City Blues
Capone is a charismatic thug. Plain and simple
Capone came at the invitation of Johnny Torrio, his Five Points Gang mentor who had gone to Chicago to resolve some family problems his cousin’s husband was having with the Black Hand. He quickly resolved the issue by killing members of the Black Hand who had given his cousin’s husband problems. He saw many business opportunities in Chicago, bootlegging following the onset of prohibition. Torrio had acquired the crime empire of James “Big Jim” Colosimo after the latter refused to enter this new area of business and was subsequently murdered.
