History is constantly reminding intelligent folks that everyone must learn from others' major crimes and really grand mistakes.

In fact, history repeating itself is a common warning in all walks of life. Children are taught this in school to help them listen in history class. People going through breakups are reminded of it as they consider going back to their ex. Humanity is constantly reminding itself that everyone must learn from their mistakes.

Al Capone was born in New York, on January 17, 1899. Many gangsters came from impoverished backgrounds, but this was not the case for Capone. Big Al was from a professional family. His father was one of the thousands of Europeans who arrived in New York in 1894. 

Al Capone grew up to become one of the most infamous American gangsters before being sent to prison in 1934 for a tax evasion conviction, he had amassed a personal fortune estimated at $100 million as the head of the crime syndicate.

These images indicate law enforcement descending on Al Capone’s South Florida mansion in 1938. He was thrown in jail for income tax evasion.
