The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre – Not Just a Day of Love

Valentine’s Day is about being with the people you love, whether it’s your spouse, partner, husband, wife, kids, parents or that guy you met at the bar. Romance, chocolate strawberries, maybe (if you’re lucky) some fun in the bedroom. It’s hard to believe that this romantic day has a bloody red stain.

Back in the 1920s, Chicago wasn’t the friendliest of cities. It was ruled by gangs with shinny shoes and big Tommy guns and Al Capone was looking to be king of the hill. In a plot to eliminate his rival gang boss, Irish gangster George “Bugs” Moran, Capone had his boys dress up like police officers and stormed a garage where Moran was supposed to be. The supposed police had their victims line up facing the wall and 70 rounds of ammunition later; they left the bodies for the real police to collect.

Capone was never convicted for the crime and his target “Bugs” Moran, ended up coming late and missed the whole thing. Capone took over Chicago as the head crime boss, but was finally taken down in June of 1931 for tax evasion.
