In chapter 6 Jurisdiction Father Gregory speaks of a gang member named Flaco and a rival member named Gato. Flaco is a gang member who was into doing drugs and one night he got high with his friends and ended up in the hospital. The doctors say that they have never seen someone hit with this much impact and survive. The next day father is walking next to the rival gang and one member named gato said that he was glad of what had happened to Flaco, Father then gets very mad at these men who laugh as Flaco is in critical condition. Later Father is going to the hospital and sees Gato and gives him a ride and when Gato leaves he tells father that he didn't mean what he had said and tells father to tell Flaco that he hopes he gets better. Th reason that the cheaper is calle jurisdiction is even though these people were from rival gangs they fell into each other's lives.
