    St Valentine's Day Massacre

    St Valentine's Day Massacre

    When seven men were gunned down in a Chicago garage in 1929, their killers thought nothing of it. After all, they had been engaged in a hostile war against each other, and the victims were merely collateral damage.

    What they didn’t expect, though, was that these killings would mark the end of the powerful grip that they had over American society. With these seven murders, they managed to topple the organized crime syndicates that terrorized the country’s citizens.

    This is the story of the 1929 Valentine’s Day Massacre.

    Throwaways, Part 9

    Throwaways, Part 9

    Season Finale. For three years now I’ve been nailing these little red crosses into the ground. I know it doesn’t mean very much, but what the hell else am I supposed to do? Forget? Walk away with the same indifference I’ve resented in others? I know they don’t fix anything; I know they don’t make anything right. Maybe most people don’t even know what they are. In fact, I’m sure they don’t.

    I could have marked the actual burial plots – but with what? I can’t put a name on them. I can’t fit my outrage on a little stone marker (what’s the character limit on those anyway?) Besides, putting a memorial in some remote corner of some equally remote cemetery, overtop of a forgotten body, is only going to result in a forgotten memorial.

    Throwaways, Part 8

    The best imaginable alibi, outside of lunch with the Dalai Lama, is simply to place yourself in police custody at the time the crime is committed. If the police are with you, they know it’s not you – or so the logic goes. This is, in fact, the very thought process that stalled the prosecution of Jerry Johns for the Redhead Murders.

    Throwaways, Part 7

    [Part 7] By the time someone becomes a lot lizard, they have, by and large, already suffered enough. Truck stop sex work is a late stop on a tour of misery that almost always begins at home. And if it doesn’t begin at home, it begins just outside of it, with bad boyfriends, bad uncles and other predators with their foot already in the door. Interview any one lizard, or twenty, and you’ll hear a similar story - their home life or love life was, to put it mildly, problematic.

    Throwaways, Part 6

    Rather than adoring and desiring his mother according to the Freudian complex, Jerry Johns appears to have hated her subtly and relentlessly under the guise of run of the mill spree-killing. Hearing all this, you might be able to guess what Johns’ mother did for a living, and what color her hair was. 

    She was a redheaded prostitute.

Amazing!!

I highly suggest all episodes. Informative, interesting and personal. I love Shane and Gemma! I’m so glad they honor all the brave women and men who share their stories.
The Maps and other seasons are incredible too.

Creepy

Do we really need this weird music and the sounds effects of a breaking neck? It could be so good.

Bright and brilliant!

Always looking forward to the next one!
