80th Anniversary: Death of Gangster John Dillinger Helped Lead to Creation of FBI

Gangster John Dillinger was the fed’s first Public Enemy Number One.

It was June 22, 1934, and Dillinger was wanted for at least 12 bank robberies, four police department robberies and the murder of a police officer. Outside the Biograph Theater in Chicago, agents from the Department of Investigation of the Justice Department shot and killed Dillinger after he reached for a gun, Reason recounts.

The nationally publicized capture catapulted J. Edgar Hoover and his “G-Men” into heroes, prompting Congress to approve the creation of the FBI.

Al Capone an “Amateur” Compared to the FBI’s New “Public Enemy Number One”

The head of a criminal enterprise in Chicago is far more violent and dangerous than mob boss Al Capone ever was, according to the FBI.

To capture the elusive, vicious Joaquin Guzman Loera, the FBI said it has joined forces with the Chicago Police Department, naming Joaquin Guzman Loera “Public Enemy Number One.”

“Not since the Chicago Crime Commission’s first “Public Enemy Number One” has any criminal deserved this title more than Joaquin Guzman Loera,” said J.R. Davis, President and Chairman of the Chicago Crime Commission. “Compared to Guzman, Al Capone looks like an amateur. Guzman is currently heading the largest and most powerful crime organization in Mexico.”

Davis said Lorea’s group – the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico – is the major supplier of narcotics in Chicago.

“His agents are working in the Chicago area importing vast quantities of drugs for sale throughout the Chicago region and collecting and sending to Mexico tens of millions of dollars in drug money,” Davis said.
