- Synopsis / Plot
- Captain McQuigg (Thomas Meighan), an honest Irish cop in Chicago, is targeted by a gunsel under the direction of bootlegger Nick Scarsi, but the gunman deliberately misses and Scarsi informs McQuiqq that it will behoove him to get along with him. McQuigg, rebuffing the crime boss, informs him that he hasn't yet had the chance to draw his own gun. Despite the brazen activities of his criminal empire and multiple murders committed by Nick and his gang, McQuigg can't bring Scarsi to justice due to political corruption. Whenever McQuigg puts Scarsi or one of his henchmen in jail, a lawyer is ready to gain their immediate release after a call to "The Old Man," the force behind "The Organization" running Chicago. It is enough to make McQuigg disgusted with The Law.
