Your daily dose of old world gangsters who were rubbed out doing what they loved most. Plus some other fun stuff.
Arrest of Francis 'Two Gun' Crowley
Tuesday, November 18, 2014
Death was eventually disqualified and barred from racing for making opponents burst into flames. His dreams of being a famous jockey dashed, Mr. Reaper went back to harvesting souls. He also made a passive income as a bee keeper.
Can only wonder what is happening down the track as the spectator and the cop seem to care less about the spectacle in front of them...and yes that is the do-nothing Phantom Detective passively looking on as usual.
