The history of an American gangster and the founding of the FBI tasked to try and catch him.
During the Great Depression, the American gangster John Dillinger led the “Terror Gang” and robbed numerous banks and police stations.
Law enforcement caught Dillinger twice, and he escaped twice. The media loved him and made him look like a modern-day Robin Hood.
J. Edgar Hoover used Dillinger and his gang to transform the Bureau of Investigation into the Federal Bureau of Investigation and hoped that newly developed techniques could end Dillinger’s reign once and for all.
