Gangsters were responsible for murder, Prostitution, Illegal Gambling, and many other crimes but yet everyone still loved them.They were a shining example of how prohibition didn 't stop anything and arguably led to even more problems. Nothing could stop them because they had immense wealth from bootlegging alcohol, and could have anyone they wanted to join their side because as they saw it you were either with them or a rival gang.
