Al Capone sits in prison as Prohibition ends.

On this date in 1933, Prohibition ended in the United States while my uncle Al Capone and his brother, my grandfather Ralph Capone, sat in prison serving time for income tax evasion. BTW in 1991 the American Bar Association retried my uncle for income tax evasion, using a real judge and jury, plus all of the evidence from the first trial. and he was found 'Not Guilty' on all counts. The income tax farce was purely political. If my family was still running the outfit on this date, they would have been awarded by the government and be given a license to run the first legal liquor distribution company in America.
