And it was probably the first time he’d seen Mooney laugh since his brother’s wife, Ange, had died; he’d laughed until Chuck thought he’d die laughing, right there in front of God and everybody. Well, Mooney hadn’t died laughing, goddamn it. No, some fucking bastard had gone and killed him, instead. Chuck took a deep breath, stepped up to the casket, and looked down at the waxen face. He suddenly realized he’d never seen his brother sleeping—at least not in a long, long time. Mooney. His childhood hero.
His neighbors praised his son for his guts and street smarts, his catlike way of always landing on his feet, and Antonio found himself feeling a surge of pride at the mention of Mooney’s name. Things were going along smoothly from Mooney’s point of view until July, when he and two other 42s, Joey Sypher and Dominic Caruso, came up with the idea of burglarizing an expensive north side dress shop. In the dead of night, they broke in and got away with over fifty dresses. Pulling out into the street, they were spotted by coppers patrolling the area.
Unfortunately, neither his gangland connections nor his 42 cronies could get him out of a jam with the coppers that September of 1925. At seventeen, he received his first arrest and conviction—for auto theft—and was sentenced to thirty days in the Joliet state pen. It was a turning point for Mooney. Sitting in the cell in Joliet gave him time to consider just how far he’d come since those days as a child when he’d been chained and beaten beneath the tree on West Van Buren. He’d learned to rely on his own wits and cunning to get by in the world—and up until now they’d served him well.
