to those of us...

- on fixed incomes.

- Hold it. That's Baxter.

- I know, I know.

- What the hell has he got to do with it?

- He's special federal prosecutor.

- That son of a bitch cost me a career.

You brought in a suspect with

half the bones in his body broken.

- Any prosecutor would've gone after you.

- Oh, you remember the case.

The guy kidnapped

an 11-year-old girl.

He molested, murdered

and mutilated her.

Well, the public wasrt too keen

on heavy-handed cops at that time.

Baxter was out

to nail me to the wall.

- I went to see him, tried to tell him what happened...

- What did he say?

Resign or be prosecuted.

Any way you want it.

Yeah, well,

the good news is that...

he's giving Patrovita a lot more shit

than he ever gave you.

I got a lotta debts.

Uh-huh. To whom?

- Friends.

- Like Paulo Rocca and Bill Rusman?

I plead the Fifth Amendment.

That's Lu Patrovita.

He runs the strongest

of the Chicago families.

- Mr. Rocca,

your stated source of income...

is a travel agency, yet you,

like Mr. Patrovita...

seem to, uh, have a lifestyle

that far exceeds your income.

Would you mind shedding some light

for us on what seems to be...

some extraordinary

money management here?

I'll take the Fifth on this,

on whatever you're gonna ask me next...

and everything after that.

Honest men don't have to tolerate

this kind of harassment in this country.

Thank you, Mr. Rocca,

for reminding us of our inalienable rights.

Rocca is the undertaker.

Anybody bothers Patrovita,

this one buries 'em in the gravel pit.

So we did Who's Who In Chicago. You're the one

in the bureau. What do you want from me?

Do, uh...

Do you remember my son?

Blair. Yeah. We went to

some ball games with him.

- Yeah, that's right.

- He joined the bureau, didn't he?
