Russell Aiuto, in his article “Sacco and Vanzetti,” describes the events that led to and followed the executions of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti. On April 15, 1920, two men shot and killed a paymaster and guard in Braintree, Massachusetts. The two men escaped with three accomplices, successfully nabbing nearly 16,000 dollars. Although five men were involved, only two, Sacco and Vanzetti, were ever arrested, tried, and convicted for the crime. The trial against Sacco and Vanzetti was poorly conducted.

Living with his mother and father, Teresina and Gabriele, along with his older brothers Vincenzo and Raffaele, his family moved to a poor tenement in the borough of Brooklyn in New York City. Growing up, Capone never exhibited any signs of becoming the master criminal known about today (Biography 1).

Nutter, mayor of Philadelphia and President of the United States Conference of Mayors testified before the U.S. Senate committee on the judiciary topic of the proposed assault weapons ban (Lane 2015). Nutter’s opening statement is empathizing with senator Feinstein by sharing a story about how when he first got into office one of his senior police officers was killed in a supermarket bank robbery, leaving a wife and three children behind. He then goes on to mention the most significant mass shootings in history, specifically Virginia Tech claiming 32 lives and Columbine claiming 13.

Shooting Basca and Finch was all premeditated. Ruben states “Somehow he was holding the little Winchester he’d carried in the timber that afternoon. And holding it comfortably.” (page 49) Not only did Davy bring the gun to bed with him, but had the gun loaded and ready to go before the light was switched on to see who was at the door.
