  • It looks like a man...
  • A man has been seing flying in the city's downtown area this morning at 8:15
  • People are intrigued about how he does it.
  • Some people say it could be some kind of illusion.
  • All the experts who are analyzing these images say, quote:
  • "This is clearly an extraordinary event"
  • Police can't provide any further details now as they are afraid to put out misinformation.
  • Some say he's wearing a dark gray suit
  • ...others think it's actually his skin.
  • Officials have been ordered to bring helicopters back.
  • Operators say it is too risky and dangerous in case of an air collision over the populated city.
  • Reports have been coming in that our flying man attacked a car this morning.
  • Two people were found dead inside. It seems as if he's demonstrated super strength
  • It's very difficult for the police to respond to this kind of thing
  • since it's unclear exactly what we are dealing with, and if there would be any other potential attack like this one.
  • Over the last 3 days, fifteen other victims have been found dead in similar attacks.
  • He is reckless and violent. The Federal government might intervene and they ask the population to cooperate and stay home.
  • Authorities released the first list of victims and finally confirmed the existence of a pattern.
  • We believe that the flying man who's spreading panic in our city is some sort of a flying vigilante...
  • ...due to the fact that most of his victims have extensive criminal records.
  • That could be a relief for the good citizen and an alert to the outlaw.
  • But the question remains: Who's law is this ruthless vigilante applying?
  • The search is still on for a man who was apparently abducted last night.
  • After surviving a deadly attack he was taken away by the vigilante, hours later, said witnesses.
  • Chances are that he might still be alive.
  • Police are led to believe this is how the vigilante extracts information...
  • for potential leads since the man is assumed to be part of a larger criminal organization.
  • I was listening to that, thanks.
  • Did you hear me?
  • I'd rather not, could you pull over here, I'm hungry.
  • There's no time.
  • We have time. I gotta eat something or my heartbrun will act up, ok?
  • Fine.
  • Hi, can I take your order?
  • Do you guys have gluten free selections?
  • No, we have nothing gluten free.
  • I want the burguer without the bum, is that possible?
  • It'll get soggy in the bag. Ok, That's better than nothing...
  • ...and anything lactose free like soy or almond milk?
  • How do you think he knows?
  • Who are you talking about?
  • The flying guy. How do you think he knows who to chose, who deserves it?
  • I don't know, you're worrying too much, he's only one guy, he can't catch everyone
  • I don't Know, Rob. I just think that we should be more careful...
  • ... you know, just take the proper precautions
  • Mike, please, you taking this too seriously. The media is blowing this way out of proportion.
  • He's already got what? 5 guys?
  • 35?
  • 35.
  • Yeah, 35 and that is the last week.
  • Holy... you know? you gotta stop following this shit. Or it'll make you anxious...
  • ...we are not hurting anyone.. No?
  • Take it easy Mike, alright? Once we're done, you take the money...
  • go look after your family, plant your flowers or whatever the hell you want to do.
  • Let's focus here ok?
  • We are just about to open the lines to the listeners
  • ... and actualy just a question I wanna ask everybody listening:
  • What do you think about having a super vigilante in the city?
  • I think he's taking care of us, he's doing the work the cops can't do, I'm not worried
  • Police will never have control over this vigilante.
  • We're living in a new time and I'm glad I'm a good citizen.
  • I'm not in favor of the deaths, he could just bring them to jail...
  • 8:00 we blink the headlights twice and wait for the signal.
  • Rob, I don't feel good about this man, something is off
  • I do. It'll be over very fast.
  • Yeah? How do you know?
  • I don't, relax.
  • What are you doing? What the hell are you doing man, Rob?
  • Jesus Christ, I can't take a leak no more?
  • Did you hear that?
  • Of course I did, just keep an eye out for anything suspicious, alright?
  • Mike? Open up the trunk.
  • We are not in a war here, but unfortunately we are not in control anymore....
  • What the hell is that? It was supposed to be peaceful, remember?
  • Of course. Just a piece of mind.
  • ...many share the opinion that capital punishment isn't a deterrent to crime...
  • 8 o'clock, flash the lights.
  • Man, I don't like this.
  • I say, we just get out of here.
  • For Christ's sake, do you wanna do this or not?
  • Let's do it your way.
  • Now what?
  • They're here
  • So what now? We wait.
  • For what?
  • That's the plan, stop asking.
  • Ok, they are leaving. Are we supposed to follow them?
  • I think so. You think? You think so?
  • Follow them, yes. Just drive.
  • Did you hear that? Heard what?
  • The noise stopped.
  • What the hell is that? He wants to say something, get closer.
  • I'm not doing this. We're getting off in the next exit ok? I'm done.
  • Jesus Christ!
  • Holy Shit!
  • What's that? Drive, it's him!
  • Oh God.
  • Look out!
  • We received information of another vigilante attack on the Highway 30...
  • Three men have been found dead trapped in their vehicle...
  • One body identified as Robert Costelo, a former cop investigated for weapon trafficking...
  • The survivor is unconscious but doctors say he has no serious injuries.
  • Authorities will interrogate the man upon his recovery.
  • Was he missed by the vigilante or spared?
  • Is this the justice we want after centuries of law development and human rights?
  • What is, after all, being a good citizen?
  • if this being acts in absentia of our institutions, have we failed as a society?
  • Maybe.
  • But history has shown that any form of tyranny cannot prevail.
  • How many more family members will lose their loved ones executed without fair judgement?
  • Those who call him “hero” today, may consider him “enemy” tomorrow.
