The Impossible Crime!

Welcome to Meta-City One!
Crime Level: Crime is Crime and will be dealt with

This is Cid Vid Broadcasting, I am Huw Solo, here is the news.

Good Morning. Science news...Lowundai-Zamussi SA have announced that the world's first car-washing machine hybrid is ready to drive. Prototypes are being tested on the streets of Hamilton HabZone and citizens are invited to arrange to take one out for a spin.

The Justice Dept remains tight lipped over the attack on the HiSec armoured car, as yet there have been no reports on what was taken though sources close to the Mayor's office have been looking for a missing bill of lading for the new.....and meanwhile we have reports of a HIGH SPEED chase ....

<<<<<cut to vid>>>>>
Sterling Moss Freeway 1116 MCT - Judges on lawhogs hit the BOOST button as the hemipowered V10 screams down the boulevard; sirens wail but the renegade refuses to pull over!
"Bike: Guns to motion tracker", growls Judge Blake. 
The V10's drive is shredded and it lurches to a halt. But...."It's EMPTY, it was on AUTODRIVER!!"

 Aldrin PublicOverwalk 1118MCT; a gang of Diamond Dogs hold up a pair of law abiding civs.
"Give up the creds, nofurs", "That briefcase - I'll have that too", "Woooff!"
"Here, Col, I dont think these little fellas are housetrained"
"Too right Rayy, lets give them their BOB MARTINS."
Everyone pulls metal but the Dogs are outclassed - their bullets BOUNCE off the civs and...."DROKKIN CATFIRE! TENTACLES!" "LEGGIT"
The Dogs but

But the LAW is QUICKER!
"Aston to Control, three for the pad-wagon. Tell Blake that HOT LEAD says that two SUSCIVS matches for BOLOS RAYY and COL are headed for Docking Bay 52. Aston Out."

Document Control, Meta City DownPort 1129MCT
"Papers in order, Mr Romalpa. Head over and collect your goods."
"But Mr Grimsdale, thats not cleared, and the Judges..."
"Stan, its an original clean bill of lading - they own it"
"Thanks guys, c'mon Mr Romalpa...."
"OK, Col"
"Aw, spit!"

"HALT! You are under ARREST!"
"Nah, not us mate - look this bit of paper, it says..."
"These are not the intergalactic aliens criminals we're looking for. Have a good 'un sport."
"Cheers mate"
"Sydney Nolan! That psychic paper works, Col!"

BRRRMMMMM! BRRRRRRRRMMM! Lawhog engines HOWL as Judges Blake and Aston THUNDER to the scene of THE CRIME OF THE YEAR!

Judge Blake fires at the FREE TRADER BEERWULF as it lifts off and then switches on
"They. Are. UNDER ARREST!" roars Blake.

The Trojan Hovercar


"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."

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!"

.>>>>>>>.......<<<<<<<<<<<...,,,,78787error 959.......>>>>>>>>

"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!!!!
This is the CRIME OF THE WEEK!

 "Citizens, have you seen these alien criminals?"
"No Judge. They're pretty distinctive"
"Hmmm. Carry on your business Citizens"

"SIDNEY NOLAN! Col, I thought she had us"
"Shuttit, Rayy, just smile, keep walking and don't DROP the briefcase!".  

Col - a three eyed chook armed with a 30mm Purdey SemiAuto
Rayy - an Octohead armed with a H&K PanzerKnacker and 12mm hand cannon
The Vehicle is a Racing Green V10 Partizan
They speak with a Forexx accent
WANTED FOR: Illegal EMP use, illegal Tank Killer use, illegal gazbomb use, theft, grand theft, dangerous driving, driving without insurance, ignoring legal traffic codes, being alien, making Judges look stupid. If you see them CALL A JUDGE!
Thank you. Have a lower crime day.

Hell St Blues

Welcome to Meta City One
Crime Level: All Time High

"This is Huw Solo with Cit-Vid News broadcasting from Orbit. Good evening.

Firstly, local news. The fall out from the Meg-Aqua World Scandal continues; investors have lost millions of credits with the revelation that the scheme to build floating HabZones on the Outer Gordon Banks was a pyramid selling scam. DA of HabArea12, Brendan Grabbit said "It was a complete fraud, its amazing no one thought it even a bit fishy".  

The appearance of Judges on the streets has led to a minor decrease in crime but day by day the new guardians of law and order face a brutal our latest vid clip shows.....

......cut to vid......

Its a bad day to be a civ on Hill St - the Uggly Mutt streetgangers pick on some innocent law abiding cits - "dump the credit chip, chump" growls Spivey. "LOOKOUT!Its the rustfilth!"
"CEASE AND DESIST! CEASE AND DESIST!" .... DroidCops respond - their programming detecting crime, violence and a potential shakedown.
BLAM! BLAM! Stutter guns bark and gauss guns spit plasteel DEATH! The poor civs dive for cover.....

The Perps trade shots with the DroidCops; a crim is BLOWN AWAY by hammering gauss shells.....but in the distance is the ROAR of LAWHOGS!
"Bike: slave cannon to helmet-cam. Fire."
BDDDDAP!BDDDAP! A DroidCop is hammered into SHRAPNEL by a hail of bikecannon slugs!

"Eat LAWBOOT, Creep!"
Judge Blake gives an Uggly Mutt a patrolboot denture.

The fight takes it's toll. Judge Scully stands off and RAKES the DroidCops with her bike cannon.
"Bike: Cover me".....BAM BAM BAM! Judge Blake dismounts and DRILLS perps with accurate lawmaker rounds.......a zap gun round pings his shoulder pad and Blake sets his gun to "Perptracker" the perp legs it, the round homes in on him....SCRATCH one CRIM!

BAM! THUD! Judge Scully drops one perp and COLLARS another with her streetbaton. Just behind her Judge Blake slaps the flexicuffs on an arrestee - "its the timestretcher for you, PERP."

On one street, one walkway, there is LAW.
But CRIME does not stop and neither can the Judge....

"Citizen Kane, I dont like your tanktop but you're free to go. Citizen Rossi, that library book, it's overdue........."

Welcome to Meta City One
Crime level : Extreme

"This is Cit-Vid broadcasting from orbit; this is Huw Solo, here is the news.

Weather Control have confirmed that the radiation clouds over the Whedon Zone have been dispersed; citizens are advised to report to Rad-Con for screening if concerned......

.....We have breaking traffic news, a gang of bikers are driving at speed all along the Watchtower Overway. More later as it happens......

In the Jefferson Heights Sector, the giant inflatable Harry Hamster moored to JulesVern Towers has sprung a leak and collapsed, much to the dismay of the younger population. A Harry Hamster PLC spokesman said "yes, we are all a bit deflated".

We have more news on that biker gang; they are moving fast into Central and are splitting up. DroidCops are allegedly responding. Caution is advised.

Meanwhile we bring live coverage of an incident on East St and DeVito in Central.....

......cut to public vid cam.....

Tilly Salzman a witness to the brutal excesses of the DroidCops is being harassed by the City Crime Task Force. ......"You've cooperated with the DA, Salzman, we're taking you in -and you can  empty that credit chip to cover your legal expenses"

"What the grok?"...... "Who the freak are you?"......"Zok it! Slot the wannabe!"

"Bike: Cover me"

"I am Judge Blake ..... And there WILL BE  Law! If you resist arrest......."
 Bullets FLY on East Street as the law is brought down hard. The CCTF are blown away by Lawmaker rounds. Case: closed.
