Mafia Cop Killers

MAFIA COP KILLERS IN AKRON: THE GANG WAR BEFORE PROHIBITION (2018): From 1917 to 1919, terror struck the streets of Akron. As soldiers marched off to World War I and Spanish flu ravaged the community, police officers faced a sinister threat. Murderous kingpin Rosario Borgia placed a bounty on officers' heads for interfering with his criminal enterprises. Gangsters gunned down seven cops, killing five, in a series of braze attacks over 15 months. Author Mark J. Price chronicles the crimes, victims, gangsters and the relentless pursuit of justice.
