The Touhy gang on trial for the Hamm kidnapping. Touhy is on the front, Schaffer in back of him. Willie Sharky, the gangs top enforcer behind Tommy Touhy, sits in the third seat and Chicken McFadden, the gangs top extortionist, is in the last seat.
Crowds gathered to get into all of the trials
William Hamm, who may have been kidnapped as a warning for holding out on the bootleggers

Jake the Barber with a small army of thugs, mostly Capone men, he had hired as protection after his supposed kidnapping. It was great PR for Factor's shaky case that he had been kidnapped and had held out against the Touhy's who planned to kill him in return.
