Frank “The Enforcer” Nitti, center, known variously as the chief lieutenant of Al Capone’s Outfit, and as the real power of the gang “of which Capone is but a figurehead,” is under arrest in 1930. He was seized by agents of the Internal Revenue Department. Nitti was born in southern Italy, came to Chicago where he met Capone — and by the time Capone was put in jail by the IRS — Nitti was in charge.
