Oscar and his friends went to the city to party and took a train there and back, so they would be safe. On the ride back, Oscar is confronted by someone from is past and it breaks into a fight. The police were called, and Oscar and his friends try to leave by breaking up. The women all made it away, but most of the men were told to sit against the wall with restraints.

Consider mob boss Eddie Mars; well known by the police officers, along with his hitman Canino, yet no one seems to do anything about it. The absence of action is not a result of ineptitude; it is merely from the mob having control over everything, spanning from bootlegging to covering up murders. “But Chandler did more than use Mars ' character as a unifying thread; he also increased his importance by shifting the moral responsibility” (Rabinowitz 1).

There was an unspoken hate between them and he did not like the way Sonny carried himself or the people he was friends with. He blames this, and the way Sonny is living, on his music claiming, "his music seemed to be merely an excuse for the life he led" (83).

She feels the need to be a part of the communities within the United States, in order to try and make her home the best place possible. Lucky enough for her, those needs can easily be met as a citizen, if she’s willing to make an effort to work and talk with the right people.
