Lou Janero is a mobster that Harry Callahan puts behind bars. He was charged with murder of one of his fellow crime members who testified against him. He was also charged with bookmaking and illegal gambling. After being put in prison, he somehow contacts his hitmen to kill Harry. Both groups sent to kill Callahan fail. Later, Callahan visits Janero in jail to scare him. He brings in a large muscular cannibal inmate and tells Janero he will write letters to Hicks to get him special privelages in jail. If Harry is killed, he won't get his letters and Hicks will attack Janero. This gets Janero to stop sending his goons to kill Harry.
