The Biograph Theater
The infamous outlaw was the stepping stone of the FBI. Today the Bureau sells Dillinger files to the public which earns millions of dollars every year through the Freedom Of Information Act. In fact, the Bureau makes so much money from these files that it takes almost an eternity to obtain any information. There should be a plaque or some type of monument dedicated to Dillinger in front of the FBI Headquarters in Washington D.C.
Hoover may have dedicated much of his time to making the FBI, but it cost Dillinger his life for stealing a car a driving it across state lines, his only federal offence. Bonnie & Clyde were much more dangerous and drove several stolen cars across state lines years before Dillinger was even released from prison. Why weren't they listed on the FBI's Public Enemy Number One list?
Perhaps the answer is that the FBI knew Bonnie and Clyde were killers and they were afraid of the pair. Or possibly because Dillinger made bigger headlines which makes more sense. The FBI needed an outlaw who knew how to grab headlines and acquire the attention of the American people. The way Hoover figured it was Dillinger was definitely their man.
