AN EYE FOR AN EYE --
A special edition of Yesterday’s News exploring the criminal justice system at its most extreme: Inflicting the Death Penalty...
Executed For A Worthless Haul
Episode 268 takes us back to the years just after Prohibition when gangsters no longer had illegal alcohol to excite their purpose. This gang terrorized three states until their number came up, as it always does, and their story not only contains some daring and ill-conceived heists, but internal strife and a flight from justice.
This episode comes from the suggestion of listener Bill Murray. I don’t know if it’s the same Bill Murray of film and television fame, but I’m not saying it’s not.
Culled from the historic pages of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Baltimore Sun, the Newport News Daily News, and other newspapers of the era.
