Cartel kingpin receives same label as Capone

PUBLIC ENEMY NO. 1 :The head of the DEA’s Chicago office, Jack Riley, said that Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman would eat Al Capone alive, were the pair put in a ring

AP, CHICAGO

“His time is coming,” Riley said. “I can’t wait for that day.”

It was only a coincidence, Bilek said, that the announcement naming Guzman Public Enemy No. 1 came on the anniversary of the St Valentine’s Day Massacre, which raised public pressure to capture Capone.

Within two years of being designated Public Enemy No. 1 in 1930, Capone — who also once seemed invincible — had been captured, convicted and imprisoned.

With the same label now attached to Guzman, Bilek said, “we hope the same thing will happen to him.”
