Mad Dog Coll, a former protege of Dutch Schultz, was planning to kidnap a Schultz underling. Things didn’t go as Coll planned, and a shootout ensued. Coll fired his machine gun repeatedly, missing his target but hitting Michael Vengalli in the stomach. He died instantly. Coll got his due in February 1932. That’s when Schultz’s men pumped 15 bullets into Coll while he was on the phone with gangster Owney Madden at a London Chemists drugstore on Eighth Avenue and 23rd Street (above). by socorro

No entourage, not tough guy talk, no bragging, no nothing. He was just cool, period." - George Carrara by dottti

OP: Grandpa! About three years ago, my wife’s grandfather died. He was the kindest, most loving individual I have ever known. We named our son after him before he died. He took it as a total honor that his family did that with his name and promised our son that he would always look after him. When my sister sent me this pic, I was convinced it was my arm making the blur, but like I said, the more you zoom in, the clearer it gets. The ghost’s head is a “dead ringer” for my wife’s grandfather. by isabelle
