#3 Isn't this almost kinda like a WOT story? I mean these gangsters are fighting their own little war over drugs and turf and terrorizing their fellow citizens in the process, shooting up churches and innocent civilians. Al Capone would have been proud but there is no Elliot Ness on the scene and the IRS is busy going after the 1%. If Oh Bummer would secure the border it might cut down the flow of drugs into Chicago but don't hold your breath for that.

#9 They were taken to Stroger Hospital - a place befitting a gangster
Named after the illustrious John H. Stroger, a Chicago political 'icon' known for his scandalous and patronage-ridden administrations. A gangster without a gun (openly carried, anyway).
Michael 'Hinky Dink' Kenna and 'Bathhouse John' Coughlin would be proud.

#10 'Hinkey Dink' Kenna is where the decidedly Chicago term 'Hinkey' (the general feeling that something is 'just wrong') comes from.
A tad more info regarding Mr. Kenna and Mr. Coughlin (with some cool hand-drawn maps of early Chi-Town)
