St. Valentines Day Massacre 1929 Chicago

For those that love history like me !!

Warning graphic picture on link !!

It's amazing how almost everyone in America has heard of the St. Valentines Day massacre, even if they do not know what happened they have heard of the event. In short seven people where gunned down in cold blood by gunmen dressed as police officers. Thus giving Al Capone the sole title of "crime boss" in Chicago. It is scary how desensitized we have become in today's day in age! I'm afraid if something like this happened today, it would not be remembered for very long unless the killings could be blamed on global warming or George Bush!!
