Today I had nowhere to go after getting out of school, so I took a stroll through Chicago, to an alley near Clark street where 7 rival mobsters were machine gunned by Al Capone's hitmen on February 14, 1929, 74 years ago today. The victims were lined up against a wall and hosed with a nasty dosage of high velocity lead poisoning by 5 of Capone's men (three of whom posed as policemen). The five gunmen fired well over a hundred and fifty shots.

Happy St. Valentines day from Chicago Illinois.

Can you feel the love?
