If the same crazed Mutants roaming Chicago were in Iceland they would still be "icing" each other left and right. The old idea of cold weather keeping crime down has gone out the window.

Wow... Shot in the chest and being treated at Holy Cross? Back in the day when I lived over there, that place was only good to get stitches for a cut. If I'm shot, ill take my chances on the ride to Christ thank you.
