The Lawless Decade

The Lawless Decade

Ever since I was a kid I was fascinated by this shit.  My dad had a book titled “The Lawless Decade” that I’d read with a combination of nausea and glee.  Al Capone, John Dillinger, Bonne and Clyde, Babyface Nelson, Pretty Boy Floyd.  First of all, Bonnie and Clyde were murdered.  Horrifyingly.  Her screams apparently were not of this world.  Also, I think the hurricane of bullets fired by total cowards actually took one of her hands off.  They couldn’t even embalm the bodies–too many bullet holes in each (50 total)…. Also, Pervis, Mr G-Man, committed suicide eventually.  A just reward?
