John Dillinger Became A Notorious Gangster After A Humble Beginning

John Dillinger Became A Notorious Gangster After A Humble Beginning

John Herbert Dillinger was born in 1903 in Indianapolis in a middle-class family. He was brought up under a strict regimen of disciplinary extremes. John's mother died only a few years after he was born, and he could never get along well with his stepmother his father brought in about six years after this.

Signs of Dillinger as a criminal became apparent from his youth. He found himself at the receiving end of trouble quite often, and ultimately had to quit school to look for a job in a machine shop. But he became sick of it and began hanging around all night. His father soon moved to the country thinking the change would spell good for his son.

Dillinger ultimately found himself in the Navy after an episode with an auto-theft. He found trouble again, and found himself married in 1924. The couple moved to Indianapolis, where Dillinger met Ed Singleton. Together, they tried to rob a grocer, but were arrested. Dillinger got a sentence of 14 years in jail.

Quite a bit of hyperbole was used in detailing John Dillinger's daring exploits and his encounters with the authority. He made his presence felt between September 1933 and July 1934 when he and his gang were instrumental in  creating terror in the Midwest. They killed 10 men and wounded seven others.

He had an organised syndicate led by him that plundered different banks on 24 different occasions. They also attacked four police stations. Dillinger ran away from prison on two different occasions. Dillinger stands out as prominent among all his contemporary criminals.

Dillinger managed to dodge police officials across four different states. Ultimately, he had to return to his roots in Chicago in 1934. He tried to flee from the police after intimidating them with  a weapon, but he was shot dead.
