Memories of bodyguards and Al Capone

Trevor Jensen of the Chicago Tribune writes about the life of George E.Q. Johnson Jr., whose father was the lead federal prosecutor in Chicago in the 1931 conviction of Al Capone.

Johnson's wife, Mary Ann, recalled of her husband's youth: "He'd had a bodyguard throughout the entire time. Even going out on dates, he had a bodyguard."
