How It Begins
You are a police officer in a small quiet suburb. You have been working long and hard and you have been getting praise from your coworkers for the job you do. But your bosses have done little to promote your career and after all the work you've done, you still patrol a beat. Your brother has been watching a certain girl and you know it, following her home from school and trying to talk with her. That has bothered you, because you know his connection with reality is often very slim. So one day you follow him to the house of the young school girl. You enter the house quietly. As you do, you hear a gunshot.
A large angry man is standing over your brother, and your brother is slowly bleeding to death on the floor. You snap. You pull out a service revolver and you take two shots, one hitting the chest of the angry man and the other passing through his head. The house you are in is isolated. No one will have heard your shots, other than the people in this house. For now, you and you alone are the law in this building. At the same time, you are a trained police officer. Time and again, in your experience, prudence and restraint has shown to be superior to anger and violence. The people in this house have suffered. They are likely to look to you for guidance and support. Don't misuse this trust.
