Touching upon the history of mob influence, including the dealings of infamous Al Capone, the book asserts both the positives and negatives of organized crime participants who are also functioning members of the Chicago community. It makes claims about the ways in which corruption can develop in a court system, and offers lessons through example on how deep corruption could be in Chicago during various periods and what motivation and opportunity there is for citizens to avoid such court corruption.
