George Leonard "Shock" Short is one of the American gangsters missing from the profiles of the Gangsters of the 1920s and 1930s.

The Stone County, Missouri boy is the brother of the late United States Seventh Congressional District Congressman Dewey Jackson Short of Missouri.

Shock Short and the O'Malley gang were regarded as one of the most successful gangs in the midwest in the 1930s. And, like Jesse James of Missouri, in Stone County, Missouri "Shock" Short was considered "The Robin Hood of Stone County."
