Last week Lou and his partner Dave Katz were following up on a tip that a big cocaine buy was going down behind a old brick two flat on west Harrison. The two cops were watching the drop point from the inside of an old panel truck Lou kept for just such occasions, and it was loaded to the gills with the latest electronic surveillance gear as well as a small army's worth of firepower. One of Lou's favorite sayings was, "You can't ever pack too much heat on the West Side!" When Lou observed the buy going down he signaled Dave who was hiding in an adjacent garage. Both cops then rushed the startled dealers who were quickly handcuffed and thrown to the ground. They frisked one of the punks and found $5000 in cash and at least $10,000 worth of cocaine! At this point Dave explained the facts of life to the handcuffed dealers, they could keep half the coke and walk with no questions asked, or put up a stink and spend the next five to ten at the state pen in Joliet. Even these dumb fuckers could figure out their next move, and two minutes later they were hightailing it down the alley a little poorer for their trouble! Now five grand split two ways was not half bad, and later on they could sell the coke to dealers they were friendly with, and probably knock down another grand apiece on that. That was life on the West Side. Big money and for big stakes.
Money. The money was good. Safety deposit boxes. Unnumbered foreign bank accounts. One other thing made being a vice cop on the West Side so, uh shall we say "interesting", was all the free pussy that a cop could handle. Most of the whores were controlled by a few powerful pimps and in order for the girls to stay on the street and out of jail the pimps had either pay the cops off in cold hard cash, drugs, or give the boys in blue a little taste of the poontang! Last week Lou and Dave had just arrested a hooker named Amber. Just as they were putting her into the squad car up drives Amber's pimp, Joey C. Now Joey was in no mood to have one of his girls off the street for even and hour or two, so he pulled Lou over to the side and told him that he and Dave could have a nice party with a couple of new young bitches he had just turned out. They were both eighteen and built. Just let Amber take a walk and the party would start over at the "house". Ten minutes later the two cops were inside an old storefront building Joey C. used as an office. In back were a rabbit warren of rooms that the girls could use with their tricks, and waiting in two of the rooms was the new talent Joey had promised.
