Public Enemies America's Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI 1933 34 Read ì 2 Coming in Summer 2009 the major motion picture from Universal Studios ludicrously entertaining Time Public Enemies is the story of the most spectacular crime wave in American history the two yea. Most Filipinos still look up to America as their savior This was rooted on the fact that the US was the one that liberated the Philippines from the Japanese during World War II The US granted the Philippines its post war independence on July 4 1946 in the Treaty of Manila However the military bases treaty was rejected by the Philippine Senate in September 1991 and so the dreams of many young men to have a chance to join the US navy just ceased My brother was one of those who were fortunate to get the nod of the navy screening officers in July 2006 six months after the 1986 EDSA revolutionWe grew up loving everything American I still remember that during the 70 s and early 80 s we used to eat California apples and oranges only during Christmas My grandmother s third husband served in the Fil Am military during the war so she was allowed to go inside the military bases Part of her visits to the bases was to purchase PX goods means import restricted grocery items from the bases commissary stores I used to look forward to those trips to the bases because those were the only times I could have some Pringles marshmallow corned beef and other imported goods that were not available outside the military basesPart of that love for everything American was not only limited to their grocery items We also imbibed their culture music fashion books and even films Even up to now we flock to the bookstores during the release of famous American books or still stay tuned to National Book Awards or Pulitzer and buy and read their nominated and winning books We still look at the list of New York Times Bestsellers that one of the bookstore chains in the country visibly posts in their outlets We still watch Oscar award nominated and winning movies Oh I loved Hollywood Watching the Oscars used to be the most awaited annual event for me while growing up This includes watching everything they create including gangster films In 1967 for example Warner Bros Seven Arts Bonnie and Clyde was one the 5 nominated films for the Best Picture then a couple of years after Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid also got the jurors nod Of course the 70 s was dominated by the Francis Ford Coppola s The Godfather s first two parts and was capped by the final part sometime in the early 80 s The three parts of the series made a record in the Oscars as the only trilogy that each part was nominated in the Oscar Best Picture award Only the first two wonI loved those gangster films I still vividly remember how Bonnie and Clyde looked like in that movie and the final scene before they died I enjoyed and held my breath while watching Butch and his partner got cornered and died I watched countless times the Godfather series then I bought their copies in all formats Beta VHS VCD DVD and last year Blu Ray This book Public Enemies chronicles the founding and the rise to power of the most admired and most feared by the criminals organization in the US the FBI Federal Bureau of Investigation No history of FBI of course can be said without mentioning its first director J Edgar Hoover 1895 1972 He was appointed in 1924 to head the Bureau of Investigation and he founded FBI in 1935 He was still its chief when he died in 1972 He had some excesses and it is for this reason why FBI directors now are limited to 10 year termsWe all know about the Depression Era in the 30 s We were shocked to read about this in relation the the Dust Bowl in John Steinbeck s The Grapes of Wrath Saul Bellow s The Adventures of Augie March and Karen Hesse s Out of the Dust The characters in those works suffered a lot because of poverty lack of job lack of food Some resourceful elements in the society on the other hand did not wait for them to die hungry Pretty Boy Floyd 1904 1934 an American bank robber was said to be have only been a victim of hard times The Depression era gave birth not only to Floyd but to a flurry of criminal gangs carrying out large numbers of bank robberies especially in the Midwest They outran and outsmarted the FBI organization while in its infantile stage by having superior firepower and fast getaway cars For example the book says that Bonnie was not good in handling guns what made him escape the police each time was his excellent driving skills Alvin Creepy Karvis 1907 1979 known for his alliance with Barker Gang and his being the last public enemy to be takenHowever the most prolific of them all based on this book s narration was John Dillinger 1903 1934 He crossed states that made his crimes federal He was charged for a murder of a police office but was not convicted He was jailed twice but escaped twice too He and his partner Baby Face Nelson 1908 1934 are on the centerfold in this book and I could not help myself be in awe and admire the clever moves and thinking of this duoI know that doing those crimes is unlawful and not worthy of admiration However the little boy inside my old man s body still sometimes craves for fast paced car chase ear shattering bombs body pulverizing armalite shootings and blood splattering murders Then having those well made films really completes the picture of this boyhood fantasy because they appear sincere than the computer enhanced camera tricks that we see in action films nowadays Filipinos had neither Dust Bowl nor Depression Era in its history because we are always depressed However we also had gangster movies like Nardong Putik Waway Boy Pana Totoy Bato and Totoy Mola ha ha I wish somebody make an indie film that will include all those boyhood crime heroes and let them kill each other carambola style

Public Enemies America's Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI 1933 34 Read ì 2 And the Barkers In an epic feat of storytelling Burrough reveals a web of interconnections within the vast American underworld and demonstrates how Hoover's G men secured the FBI's rise to powe. For as strange as this sounds I am fascinated by the culture of the Great Depression I would love to have lived then just to see what going to the movies listening to the radio was like Of course the War on Crime would have been a big part of it I just imagine what it would ve been like to have lived in Chicago then Since I am born and raised in Chicago the story of the Dillinger manhunt has always had a sort of special fascination for me I ve actually been to the Biograph theater and seen the exact spot where John Dillinger was gunned down on July 22 1934 For a person fascinated with history this has some sort of a special meaning for me I like to think that while President Roosevelt was unveiling his programs in the New Deal bank robbers and gangsters criss crossed the land Also being somewhat fascinated by the history of the FBI and J Edgar Hoover in particular I found this book to be a fascinating piece of his overall legacy This is Hoover before the civil unrest of the sixties and the wiretaps and the files on various senators and presidents One of the most interesting strands of the story was the overall character of Melvin Purvis the FBI Special Agent in Charge SAC of the Chicago theater of operations in the campaign to bring down Dillinger I found it fascinating that Purvis relationship with Hoover actually was one of unbridled terror and deep seated anger especially on the part of Hoover himself For all intents and purposes Melvin Purvis to me is the real hero of this narrative The conclusion of Purvis story was very sobering if not enlightening What exactly ever happened these men that fought this so called War on Crime and the time and place that it was set in Not faceless or nameless they are the true victors here All in all I found this book to be very enlightening and extremely informative giving the general American citizen a glance into an era that is no In conclusion may we all be grateful for those men that stood on the front lines of this war and exterminated this threat from the existence of so many AmericansORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN 2004
