The fire-bombing of 324 car

About a year after I left the B.P.D., this happened. 324 car got firebombed. Some locals didn't like the officer driving it because he could outrun and catch anybody in the district who tried to run from him. Somebody led him on a foot chase while his friends torched the car. It was our best car, too. The only one with a computer.

It got torched.

And burnt-out shell.

The yo-boys celebrating their victory. What can you say about a group of mostly kids, all in white T-shirt and jeans, celebrating their victory? It's 1AM, do you know where your child is?
