Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini:
** Jack commits a lot of crimes over the course of the movie, including impersonating an FBI agent, stealing a car and robbing a bar, yet gets away scot free.
** Madrukas stole an awful lot of money and worked as an associate of the Mafia, as well as skipped bail. He ends the film walking away a free man, with Jack letting him go for the sake of getting even with Eddie's backstabbing (the Serrano affair having been dealt with through means other than him testifying).

* HeroInsurance: Yes, Jack helps the FBI nail Jimmy Serrano. But he also steals a car, impersonates an FBI agent, impersonates a Secret Serviceman, robs a bar, interferes with an FBI investigation, and lets a wanted fugitive go free. He ends the movie at liberty, free to open his coffee shop.

* DirtyCop: Apparently, most of the cops in Chicago were on Jimmy Serrano's payroll. Walsh refused to take bribes, and was thus unfairly drummed out of the force.

* NoIndoorVoice: Jack is forced to resort to this [[spoiler:at the climax, when Marvin tussels with Jack during the sting operation, causing Jack's wire to malfunction, and allowing Cerrano to sneak away with the computer disks. Jack sees Cerrano's thugs moving in for the kill, and in desperation, yells out, "Cerrano's got the disks! ''Cerrano's got the disks! CERRANO'S GOT THE DISKS!''"
