Calahan: running the plates now.  Car is registered to a Clair Guerra
Dog Face: Guerra?
calahan: yeah Guerra.  what's up
The officers pull over the  car onto the soft shoulder of the hiway
the officers exist their squad car
Jerome roles down his window still smoking a small joint
Dog Face: license, ownership and insurance please
Jerome hands over his ID
Dog face: you were going 140 km/hr. i am sure you noticed that
officer Calahan chimes in 
Calahan: and your smoking an illigal substance as we speak
Jerome looks at Dog Face and ignores Officer Calahan
Jerome:  I remember you from back in the days.  You knew my brother Sampson Guerra
Dog face: thats true I remember your brother.  Next time watch the speed limit ,and put out the joint .
Calahan has a pissed look on his face.  the officers walk back too their vehicle.  Jerome peels off back onto the highway.  Officer Calahan slams the door
Dog Face: I know your pissed and your probably wondering why I let him go
Calahan: your fucking Right.  The guy looks like a gangster , hes speeding and hes smoking a fucking joint in our face.  for all you know he could have had a gun in  the car and you let him fucking walk because you knew  his brother from back in the day?
Dog face: your new kid in the big city and your right he was smoking, speeding and for all we know  he might  of had a gun in the car.
Calahan: so?
Dog Face:  The guerra we just  met runs the Lane Crew and sits on with the other 6 crews on the council in Jane and finch
Nothing we could have done would  put him in jail.  hes way too big  time to go down for bull shyt like that .the d.a and the force want big bust not crap .   Detective Colangelo wants  the crews  to be left alone and on top of that the Mayor and the other city councillors would deny he was even on this hiway.  Jerome is a community leader in a weird way .
Calahan: look I might be  from Walkerton Ontario but  are you telling me that that black  gangster has that much power
Dog face: welcome to the big city.
