He's old school. Bender of rules. Breaker of bones.
They don't make cops like Collins any more. And maybe that's a good thing.
You be the judge.
Constable Collins catches a glimpse of chrome. A snub-nose, buried in the guard’s huge gorilla hand. Pushed into Stamford’s chest. At the heart. It happens point blank and fast.
Whomp … Whomp … Whomp.
Three shots, muffled, but unmistakable.
There are screams. People start ducking for cover. Joshua Stamford falls to the white tiled floor. His body jerks and kicks. Holes torn in his leather.
