Smoking kills...as do the rackets.

With cigarette in hand Aloysius Kearney, who had a record dating back to at least 1917, walked along South Troy Street after a hard day/night of making collections from Chicago area garage owners on this date back in 1930. Yes, there was a garage racket officially known as the National Association of Garage Owners. (Other than not getting bombed or shot, I wonder what the garage owners got for their dues?) Anyways, as Aloysius made his way along the sidewalk a car pulled up and a number of shots rang out. Five hit him in the chest and one in the head. With cigarette still clenched in his hand,  Aloysius crumbled to the ground dead.
