CRIME LEVEL: NEW POST WAR HIGH
This is Meta City Vid News broadcasting from an emergency studio. I am Hadley Hope, here is the news.
With the assistance of Vargr mercenaries, the Shrimp invasion has been defeated and SDBs have destroyed their armada. There is no news as to the fate of the Milenium Nova, Huw Solo and his crew.
Meanwhile, crime levels have increased in Meta City One, with thugging, ramping, civ-sharping and less sophisticated crimes such as armed robbery all taking place at unprecedented levels.
Media news, RoboTV, the channel aimed at robots and droids has had a massively successful first quarter, "it's all in the programming" a studio executive commented.
We are now getting reports of a Judge raid on an office in Wagner Plaza where shots have been fired and arrests made......
<<<<<<<<cut to vid feed>>>>>>>>>
There is a high level of PrivSec at the offices of Blofeld & Haas LLP, a discrete firm of media handlers and consultants.
But a Judge doesn't need a warrant and Judge Scully calls a audit of all staff records and e-comms
There is A MASSIVE DETONATION and the wall to the inner office CAVES IN. Judge Blake strides in through the dust and shoots a guard dead. "You are under arrest for mass murder and info speculation. Sentence death." The guy in the suit with the hand comp tries to run, "Gun: tangle the suit", growls Blake. A NerveTangle round SCREAMS out of the Lawgun and the suit stumbles. A hi velocity round WHIPS past Blake, he turns and DRILLS a round into the bodyguard.
Scully stun cuffs a perp just as Blake switches to perp tracker and fires through the door twice - SLOTTING both crims.
The suit tries to stand but collapses. Blake stands over him - "the Vargr are going to ask you why you sold them out. Tell me why you sold the access codes and who to and I won't turn you over to them."
"Mr Fargo. He has a base on New Liberty. He sold it to the Shrimps."
