Get Capone

Real McCoy came from bootlegger with high-grade product.

Getting Capone for tax evasion rather than bootlegging appears to have been not a result of having more proof but rather a result of juries being much more willing to convict a person of tax evasion than booting legging, since most jurors obeyed the tax law but not Prohibition.
