OddSquid80172, me neither. how sad. life was so hard for them back then. people lost everything, including members of my family in Texas, that's why they had to move to CA. and my Grandfather joined the Army when he could in 1936. He was a genious at being a mechanic even though he didn't get the chance to finish High School in El Paso, TX. He worked on the tanks for Gen. Geo. S. Patton and was with the General when he saved the famous Lippizzan horses in Austria. He got to ride one because he grew up on a ranch in Texas. Grandpa said Patton sure loved his Texas boys who were horse lovers and animal lovers like him.

what seems to be missed here is that Baby Face Nelson was a cold stone killer and there were millions that lived through the Great Depression without killing anybody.

HarleyMidgeyMom95., Life was hard for everyone, but how many became murderous thugs who wound up being shot down in a gunfight with Law enforcement? Tough times must be met with resolve and character. Anybody can prey on the weak. Only real men will stand fast and trust that God will get them through.

boydoeye52, My father grew up as a poor Black child in South Carolina during the Depression. He said the Depression didn't affect them because they were already poor. On their farm they grew all the food they needed. They had farm animals for meat. Not so bad. He later went into the military for more than twenty years. Married my mother while he was in Japan. After his service started his own business and owned three properties.

HarleyMidgeyMom95., sorry... tapped "ok" too soon. Baby Face Nelson was a notorious gangster. What is "sad" is that he chose to lead a life of crime.

Felicity, hi, I'm a mother first, an Army Veteran and currently a Police Officer for over 31 years. It's been my experience that when you have a child that you don't keep up with and is given no foundation or a way to keep gainfully occupied, many of them will go astray. 14 years old is a very impressionable age and if they encounter an unsavory person that sings their praise and give them a sense of worth, they will often gravitate and cling to that person for the euphoric feeling that is experienced when the boss says "Good job" or equivalent to a dog parent/owner/trainer saying "Good boy."

SharingCity, One of my uncles installed radios in Al Capone's cars. I had always wondered why he (my uncle) always had new cars himself. When I was old enough my mom explained it to me.

boydoeye52, Thank You for putting things in perspective... He was a stone cold killer and that propensity was strongly alluded to in the movie "O Brother where art thou" only they showed him mowing down cows not people...It was a comedy after all....

So many people lived through the depression and managed to live a moral life. Such a shame some chose a different path. Many parents don't have the experience to handle tough situations or rebellious children and back in the 1939s there were social workers or organizations to help those who needed it.

boydoeye52, So true. I suppose poverty drives people to many different levels of desperation.🤔 Also, some would rather take the easiest form of relief, as opposed to trying harder.🤨 Interesting info about Nelson, but truly sad.😟

I was born and raised in Chicago so I guess this is my history. Grandparents had a butcher shop during the depression so they always had food but the best fruits and vegetables went to the customers and my mom and her sibs ate the over ripe fruit and day old bread.
