When he got out on parole, he joined the Notorious Northside gang which was in supremacy battle with the chief gangster, Al Capone, who had a rival gang that wanted to control Chicago. It was on February 14, 1929, when several members aligned to the Northside gang were gunned downed on Clark Street in Chicago by a gang dressed as police officers in what was referred to as the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. The gang is said to be aligned to Al Capone though it has never been proven. George was the only survivor.
