WELCOME TO META CITY ONE!
CRIME LEVEL: DOWN 1.2 BASIS POINTS
"This is Cit-Vid News, Broadcasting on Pirate Satellite. I am Huw Solo, here is the news.
Good afternoon. The extreme flooding in the lower reaches of Bonham Sector has finally been brought under control; levels are dropping and mo-pads have been able to raise their grav-anchors. It seems that the levee had not broken but that the crisis was due to a freak boring malfunction when Super-Artesian GmBh were drilling for water. They found it. AqSupDep have confirmed that at least FIVE habzones have a clean water supply for about ten years. A spokesman for Super-Artesian said "all's well that ends well".
The violence in Detroit Towers continues and we can confirm that it has spilled out onto the streets as this vid clip shows......
......cut to vid feed.....
Expressway 95, near Detroit Towers 14.37 MCT.
Crims are shooting at Diamond Dogs fleeing the scene of a failed CredChip dispenser robbery.
Civ vehicles dart at speed around the lumbering Hi-Sec PLC armoured car.
With a HOWL of turbocharged thrusters, JUDGES on lawhogs POWER to the shootout.
"Bike: Guns to track mass target."
"THIS IS JUDGE BLAKE: EVERYONE IS UNDER ARREST"
Lawbikes fire bikecannon into the crims; zap guns fire back but the rounds PING off the armoured bikes..."LETS CUFF SOME PERPS", snarls Judge Scully.
Judge Blake drops a perps with a well aimed Lawmaker round, Scully's bike cannon SHRED the crim gangers and the rest flee or give up to the Judges - "Control - 5 for the ISOCUBES. Get the Pad-Wag here STAT....CONTROL? CONTROL?"
"Comms are DOWN, Blake. High Rad count in upper atmo - local and limited. ITS A MINI EMP!"
"And we seem to have lost contact with the vidcam feed there but we are just accesing "SkyEye via a trapdoor feed and visuals in 5, 4, 3, 2 ,1.....LIVE"
Expressway 95, near Detroit Towers 14.39 MCT.
A V10 Partizan has pulled up in front of the Hi-Sec. Two ALIENS have stepped off the sidewalk! The multi-eyed one has fired a grenade into the upper atmos and the one with the tentacled head has just FIRED a TANK KILLER at the rear hatch of the Hi-Sec.....
A gas grenade goes in and in goes the multi-eyed alien and he's out with a briefcase and their off! Smoke bombs all over the Expressway, Judges unable to respond and......the two aliens HAVE DISAPPEARED!!!!
