Does "Al Capone didnt contract with the Purple Gang if he didnt expect them to do his "rub outs"" mean "Al Capone (the crime boss in Chicago) didnt come to control or manipulate the Purple Gang if he didnt expect them to do his criminal jobs"?

@oristarA,
Are you asking if "rub out" implies criminal activity? It's gangster slang for murdering people.

Is Al Capone the typical symbol of criminal gang leaders in the US?

I searched online and got this:

Quote:
What is the most violent gang in the US?
The Crips are considered one the most violent and largest gangs in the United States that are involved in drugs, murder, robberies, and other crimes. The Bloods are a major rival and has been at the center of a long war with the Crips.


Would police's crackdown on the Crips and the Bloods be the typical example of combating criminal gangs? Where do you put Al Capone? Would he be dwarfed by the two gangs?
