    Didn’t you people hear His Excellency’s call to his people, to stop killing each other? Words do not stop bullets, stiff prison sentences do. And Quinn I’m talking to you, early release is not an option.

    If the 2400 block of Cermak is referred to as the "Heart of Chicago" would that make Englewood the large intestine or the gall bladder?
