he was always better than me and everything so he ended up in the rangers well you go in as brothers and you come out as what enemies i want to talk about it oh come on man ain’t got nothing better to do for next hour so go ahead hear me other than dodge a [ __ ] psycho serial killer on the loose yeah there’s there wait this is the men’s room so take a [ __ ] dump in the urinal [ __ ] bag thank you now i both saw some pretty [ __ ] up at least i know i did and i think danny had the same maybe worse we both came back in one piece but uh you know something like that changes a man a lot of vets are really [ __ ] up in the head me i just learned that life is short and crappy and you got to take what you can while you can you know yes the life of crime yeah and your brother i guess after all the mayhem and chaos he just wanted something structure in his life a little bit order did he know about you before today no no i don’t no no really yeah you know i fell off the map so let me get this straight why we out here doing all this felonious your brother playing superhero holding back the tides of chaos and i never pegged you for a philosopher but yeah i guess because we’re two sides of the same coin time’s up old woman oh [ __ ] i’m coming in having a few problems are coming in son of a [ __ ] wow come on ally what the [ __ ] i don’t think they’re coming back shut the [ __ ] up i’ve been gone a long time something’s moving around up there no no [ __ ] i know you need to keep your eye on that bend i know you need to shut your [ __ ] mouth and let me handle this okay just trying to

detective well we’ve got multiple perps with automatic weapons you know how to use them too so i’m thinking in some kind of military background possible hostages any comms no not yet but i did talk to one of them yeah i know that photo you emailed really got him excited at headquarters feds are taking a big interest in these games what are they doing here aj ali update this is aj what is it ally’s gone man what do you mean gone she took the old lady to the bathroom down the hall and she never came back now you’re telling me hey guys i think you’re going to want to come in here and listen to this so i’ve been scanning frequencies in case they’re using radios hey i’ll put it on speaker yep okay okay sit tight uh we’re getting out of here we’ll find aliata okay said type we’re being picked off like flies here we gotta do something like what there are four of us and one of him we’ve got automatic weapons he’s got a [ __ ] knife we patient aj so i’ll be over soon all right but if he does one more thing if anything else happens i’m going after him i’m in the eyes man it’s [ __ ] disgusting you don’t think says l.
a nothing shocks me anymore this is time to talk to the cops hey detective what’s this looks like you need to go and talk to him detective last time that didn’t go so well well then it sounds like you’ve already got a rapport you surrendering we need to talk i’m unarmed all right so why don’t you tell me what the hell’s going on here we got hostages how many i can’t tell you that how many of you i can’t tell you that either oh that’s great quite the turnout you got here yeah when the lapd gets its head out of its ass we throw a real good party so we have demands i’m sure you do i’ll play 747 at lax space shuttle maybe just a school bus and a medic for my guy you’ll have two hours school bus you want to i can’t tell you that no of course you can’t tell me that so what happens if we don’t when we start shooting hostages yeah i don’t really think you’re the type you don’t know my type i’m guessing you served core you my husband he didn’t come back i id out of baghdad i’m sorry

up to something just get the feeling we’re about to be had jesus it looks like the beds are crashing our party captain franklin it’s detective pascal she’s first on the scene i’m sinclair this is chen these two smith and jones where are the others coming we’re it one team one crisis that’s not swap protocol we’re not swat then who the [ __ ] are you detected dod contractors what the hell happened

bearer bonds in a safety deposit box it’s cartel money doesn’t sound like a cartel operation it’s not our guy has been making a career ripping off the cartel must have a death wish or something anyway this should have been an easy job for him something must have gone wrong inside our lucky day yeah about that there’s been a development i’m listening there’s a possibility there’s a wanted serial killer windows operating on the inside sounds like he’s taking out a couple of your man’s crew and you know this for sure we intercepted the radio traffic we heard they want a medic inside smith’s going in i don’t wait just a minute this man is wanted by the lapd that makes this an lapd operation i’m not going to stand here and argue jurisdiction with you captain you don’t have positive confirmation that this windows guy is even in there and the radio calls you heard could be deliberate misinformation what i know for sure is that there is a very dangerous armed criminal inside and your men do not have the training or equipment to take him on we do you got a problem take it up a chain of command until then this is our operation fine that it’s your will but this is still a joint operation detective pascal will act as liaison get me headquarters welcome aboard detective move come on come on come on come on come on let’s go let’s go come on come on move move move not you you

you’re not really dod he’s cartel if you hadn’t already figured it out is that true it’s a gray area but at least you nailed the dangerous criminal we only realized what was going on when you sent that photo through so thanks for that detective you’re welcome god jesus christ what did you say he said run looks like the calvary’s arrived hey detective just in time boys like i told your boss to take it stay out of our way jones over here don’t be an idiot easy for you to say you don’t have a [ __ ] family drop it drop it we can all get something out of this we just say uh paul got to win with the money we’ll split it three ways it’ll be a pretty good payday for all of us good luck spending it in fulsome [ __ ] it was just a thought i wouldn’t worry about me detective give it up paul there’s two of us and one of you it’s time don’t you think no he’s right well you nearly did it yeah ten minutes in and out supposed to be the easy one place like this i didn’t think they’d miss it
