Goose is captured by Blues and then forced to rape a black girl, and after Crystal Davis becomes pregnant, it becomes Crystal's friends and the Reds against a mean coalition of Blues and Ramrodders.

Excerpt

"Jesus Christ!" Goose impiously exclaimed. "There's gotta' be at least a thousand pounds of friggin' frozen blueberries sittin' in my new car!"

"I'll bet Gabe Gillette and his poker playin' buddies followed us here to Palace Diner from the Sons of Italy," Juice Illiani theorized. "Then Gillette and his punk friends went back and hauled these frozen berries over from his farm's cold storage and..."

"And then opened my door and dumped the freakin' fruit into my brand-new T-Bird!" Goose finished. "Sons of Italy' sons of bitches! Hey News, "Goose said, "could ya' sponsor another kid into the Reds?"

"Sure, who is he?" Tommy Tomasello asked.

"Me!" the livid vandalism victim answered.
