In the novel All the Bright Places, Theodore Finch is a victim of suicide and can be psychologically analyzed in order to show that his death was preventable. In a deep and meaningful passage, Finch describes that “you can’t stop people from dying. You can’t stop them from going away. You can’t stop yourself from going away either” (Niven). He is utterly hopeless and accepted that he will kill himself, has lost interest in life, and fallen into “the asleep” as he calls it or past the point of recover.
To begin with, Bruno Richard Hauptmann, the man most people believe kidnapped and murdered the child, was captured after an employee at a gas station recognized one of the marked bills used to pay for the child’s location (Sifakis 534). In addition, people reported Hauptmann having great woodworking skills and a previous criminal record when he came to the United States (Klein). This claim is imperative because very few people knew of his previous criminal file, and that he was capable of using his personal interests to kidnap the child. Also, many people know that Hauptmann used wood from his attic for the ladder used in the crime and used handwritten notes to get across to the parents. ¨Throughout repeated investigations, the state has concluded that Mr. Hauptmann was linked to the ladder used in the kidnapping, to the hand-written ransom demands and to the ransom money¨ (¨Museum and New Jersey Are at Odds Over Files¨).
Al Capone also gave a rise to gambling, bootlegging, prostitution, drug trafficking, theft, and murder (FBI.). Al Capone would bribe Chicago government and city officials in order to live a wealthy life. Rival gangs in the North of New York attempted many times to take Al Capone’s life which made Al Capone get a car with bullet proof windows. In addition Al Capone kept his home guarded 24/7 ("Top 10 Infamous American Gangsters & Mobsters). As a way of retaliation against the gangs who attempted his life he fought back on Valentine’s Day in 1929.
George “Baby Face” Nelson was a notorious gangster raining from Chicago. Baby Face Nelson was born under the government name “Lester Joseph Gillis” but took up the nickname “Baby Face” Nelson due to his looks and small stature. Nelson is a person that would most likely be put under the title “infamous” istead of “famous” due to his gruesome crimes and many bank robbings.

Members of his gang were often called "American Boys" : a group of non-Italian, native born criminals. "(Lantzer). Before prohibition was enforced, many gangs had their hands tied up in illegal gambling and prostitution. Capone and his gang dominated Chicago and cause lots of fear in people. As Witer explained in his work about Capone's ability with his gang, "By the late 1920's, his gang also dominated gambling, labor racketeering, and other Criminal activities and established contacts with gangs."
Prohibition got rid of saloons, many well known restaurants and clubs. It was not even enforced by the people who started this but the starters would be hypocritical putting a law for no consumption of liquor but they were drinking it themselves. Officers and others of the federal government were bribed. The worst of all the murder rates went up mostly because of the criminals and their gang
Alphonse Gabriel “Al” Capone was born in Brooklyn, New York on January 17, 1899. Growing up he became a member of the Five Points Gang where his positon was a bouncer at a brothel.

Entrance into Leadership Capone entered into the gang life at an early age under Torrio, but he did not immediately rise to power. As people do in the workforce, he struggled and clawed his way to the top after putting in countless hours doing the work for Torrio that he would later have others do for himself. At 19, he married his baby’s mother, Mae Coughlin, and moved to Baltimore with a vow to make a good life for he and his family. After his father unexpectedly died, however, he relocated to Chicago in 1920 and became reunited with his former boss, Johnny Torrio (“Al Capone,” History.com).
