The Freedom Patriots commander General Archibald Kingsbury has officially been announced as the new Deputy Mayor of Seattle, Mayor Robert Hill feels that he can not trust any of the people that would normally succeed the Deputy Mayor during this time of war. He has enacted his executive powers during a time of war to fully enforce and legalize Kingsbury’s appointment. The city is officially divided on this appointment as most feel the Mayor over stepped his authority, by appointing a known domestic terrorist to assist in governing the city of Seattle and the outlying regions.
There is still fighting breaking out throughout the Barrens and Hells Kitchen, the fighting in the Bowery has settled down though it’s still encoring near the Redmond district. There is also fighting breaking out down in Poyallup district and the bordering inner city regions. The Mayor has given full legal and military authority to the Devil Dogs, Wolf Pack, Old Guard, Dirt Dozen, Rattlers, Devil’s Rejects and the Minutemen to help police and restore order to the districts still under fire. He has also given the Rough Riders the authority to act as the cities defenders within the suburban and upper districts. Citizens are still to be on the lookout for NAN, UCAS and NATO forces as well keep a keen eye for the Deaths Hand and HRM as these terrorists will surely try to capitalize during these trying times.

The Devils Rejects have painted the suburban region of Maple Town with tens of thousands of paint balls, the Rejects have passed the blame fully on the Joker and Navigator. The Joker claims he was just having fun and nobody died, burning off steam and wanted to see if it worked. Though this can be seen as a prank, and the Joker is known for his pranks the citizens are not happy with being pelted by paint balls being fired out of a minigun. Joker said he was only playing live action HALO and then he began to laugh hysterically. Seattle Police Department are not investigating and no charges have been filed.
Seattle Police Department lost three of their brothers today to an unknown assassin, Detectives Jones, Weatherly, and Marks where all junior detectives with under a year with the gold shield. These Detectives had all just finished their time as a rookie officer and where gunned down in three separate districts all alone while getting coffee. The police department is investigating the murders of there fallen brothers, but they currently have zero leads and the medical examiners office is as well baffled by the exact weapon that was used. All three detectives where murdered within minutes of each other, and according to Doctor Apples the weapon was the same for all three murders. The suspect is still on the large and police are still investigating. There has been no statement from the Commissioner on these murders and the media have been unable to reach anyone in the Mayors Office regarding the slaying’s as well.
Assistant District Attorney Williams was murdered as he ate his lunch at Dave’s Sandwich Shop in the Lynnwood region of Seattle.

The ADA was murdered by and other older gentlemen in a military fatigues, the ADA Jacobs was brought down by some sort of laser garrotte the cleanly severed his head. the witnesses at the scene could not recall any other details about the assassins other then their attire. There was as well countermeasures that brought down all electronic surveillance equipment and rendered cellphones and cameras inert. Seattle Police Department are investigating the murder of these three men though they currently have no physical evidence and no suspects.
There was a shooting at a local grocery market later this afternoon, a madman with a fully automatic weapon entered the store and screamed “Street Justice” Killing two gang members of the Razor Backs street gang and critically wounding the the shop keeper who’s name is being withheld for his protection. Detective Anthony DiCane arrived on the scene after EMS and he assisted the medics with magical healing. This saved the shop keepers life and the man was then taken to Mercy General to have his remaining wounds taken care off. Detectives Sydney Crane and Anthony DiCane are investigating the shooting and have a suspect from the witness accounts. The video surveillance was to damaged during the shooting to be any assistance.
A man matching the description of the Grocery Killer, added to his list of crimes as he car-jacked Mr. Sherwood Thorpe of his family station wagon. Mr Thorpe was on his way home after leaving work. When he was stopped at a traffic light, he heard a knock on his drivers side window and he turned to stair the barrel of a sub-machine gun in the face. He was ordered to open his door and once he did the suspect pulled him out of the car and jumped in and drove off. Mr Thorpe said it was the most terrifying experience off his life and he is glad to be alive, he can’t understand how this level of violence could befall a safe district like the Rivers Edge District. He hopes justice is served and the criminal is eventually caught as he won’t feel safe for himself and his family till the thief is off the street. Detectives Crane and DiCane where the first on the scene and have linked the car-jacking to the same man who shot up the grocery.
Detective Anthony DiCane and Sydney Crane apprehended the Grocery Killer after receiving a tip from the hotline that he was holding up in the Bowery District in an abandoned building damaged during the fighting. The suspect was hiding near the stolen Station Wagon and was taken into custody arresting officer Anthony DiCane brought the suspect a local gang member Trevor Justice known as Stag of the Silver Talons street gang. Detective Sydney Crane covered DiCane as other members of the gang tried to stop there fellow gang member from being arrested. The two detectives where under heavy fire but managed to bring down multiple members of the street gang and keeping the suspect alive in the process. Trevor Justice was brought into Police Precinct One and was interrogated by the Homicide Captain Detective Arthur Crane, while DiCane and his partner where taken to see Doctor Sherman Finesilver to be checked for wounds. Mr. Justice waived his rights and fully confessed to Captain Crane, the District Attorney is seeking the Death Penalty for multiple offender Trevor Justice and since he plead guilty and confessed he has a short date to the city gallows. Judge Oliver McKeen passed his sentence and set his execution date for December 23rd 2073 under the articles of military trial. Trevor Justice’s hanging will not be televised and he is currently under suicide watch. They want to make sure he makes his date with the executioner.
Trevor’s family is claiming his innocence and that he is a good kid, that was at home at the time of the shootings. They say his confession was coerced and he didn’t understand what his rights were, as according to Trevor Captain Crane used the threat of physical violence and even beat him with phone books till he signed the confession. Though the video of the interrogation contradicts the suspects claims, the family has appealed the conviction and his sentence to be overturned do to his civil rights being violated. Deputy Mayor Kingsbury declined the appeal under the grounds there is no evidence of his rights being violated and as slap in the families face for trying to soil the reputation of the good Captain and integrity of Seattle Police Department, he ordered that Trevor’s Hanging be not only televised on Public Access Television he is to receive a short drop hanging with no hood.
This has the family infuriated and they have hired a private lawyer Mr. Douglas Chase to represent their son, though this Lawyer has been meet with the might of the District Attorney’s office and Private Lawyers Mr. Mason and Mr. Peterson to represent the Deputy Mayor and the Homicide Division. As of current Mr. Trevor Justices execution and death warrant stand as legally binding and he is sitting in death row, his family are hopeful that Mr. Chase can get his execution order over turned as gross miscarriage of justice.
(Standard judicial hanging is a long drop that breaks the condemned’s neck instantly once the rope goes taught, a short drop is a very cruel hanging that hasn’t been seen in America since before the Original Civil War. This form of hanging involves the condemned being strung up and forced to stand on stool or step ladder the rope is not long enough for them to drop any distance but a few inches once the item they are standing on is removed. This causes the condemned to suffer a great deal of pain as they slowly suffocate from the nooses constriction, death can take upwards of forty-five minutes or more in some cases. They then leave the body hanging for up to thirty minutes or more to confirm death versus the long drop that they remove the body minutes after it settles at the ropes end. Also the death hood has been a part of executions especially hangings for centuries, this is to spare the witness the gruesome events that can occur and as well keep the condemned from moving while to succour a proper neck break from the noose. Also to keep the officials and witnesses from seeing the condemned face at the moment of death.)
The removal of the hood and the short drop hanging, is the biggest reason the family id fighting this execution besides there views of Trevor’s right being violated and claiming his innocence. Mayor Robert Hill stands behind the Deputy Mayors decision to remove the hood and broadcast the hanging, claiming that anyone who kills our citizens needs to be properly dealt with. he also feels that the hood is pointless in a short drop hanging, they don’t care if the noose slips, since this form of hanging is meant to be long and painful. The Mayor will be employing more short drop hangings to those found guilty of capital murder as a deterrent to others. Seattle is now it’s own nation and he feels their execution methods need to be extreme right now during a time of war, a point must be made that Seattle will not tolerate those that murder her citizens. He says maybe down the line they will return to long drop or even suspension hangings and the hood issue will be put under review following the hanging of Trevor Justice on December 23, 2073 at 8:00 pm. The family can claim the body the next morning at 9:00 am after it has been autopsied, if they fail to claim the body by 9:00 am on December 24th it will be buried in the prison yard with only his inmate number to identify the grave. Mayor Hill wants this murderer to be hung, buried and forgotten about.
They are able to get around the cruel and unusual treatment of the Eighth Amendment in the Constitution do to Seattle being a sovereign nation, this execution and the many more to come will be the frame work of the New America and the New Constitution, since all that remain of the original documents are facsimile copies and the current government is ratifying a new Constitution for Seattle and her outlying regions. Though for Trevor Justice and his family, his execution is coming at a time when the Eighth Amendment has been set aside for the time being as our new nation is being formed.
In the light of the controversy caused by both the Deputy Mayor and Mayor regarding the Justice hanging the City Congress and Senate have appointed a joint council to begin the drafting of the new Constitution for the Sovereign Nation of Seattle. The council will be using the original as a guiding force as they begin to draft the new document, and the new Deceleration of Independence. The Comity will be made up of two lawmakers from each region of Seattle, it will as well include the Mayor and Deputy Mayors impute on what this document should contain. Once the Constitution is ratified a copy will be made available to all citizens and the original will be displayed in the Senate Building for all citizens to see. The signing of the document will as well be televised and available for all citizens as it will be broadcast on public access television. Deputy Mayor Archibald Kingsbury went on record saying “It’s about damn time the lawmakers got off their perviable ass’s and got to work on this important document. It’s been six days since the City won it’s independence this should have been started once victory was declared.” “No They started arguing over petty crap once again, for this to work we must have a valid Constitution, for the people to be free and for the leaders to properly govern without we are now better then the tyrants we are fighting against.”
The Mayor still stands behind the change in the hanging stating that once a criminal is convicted of a capital crime, they are stripped of their SIN and hence become property of the Department of Corrections and are no longer considered to be protected by any rights that would be there for the law abiding citizen. This means that if they wanted to execute Mr. Justice by throwing him into a meat grinder or feeding him to devil rats they are more than able under the law of the land. Both the Mayor and the Deputy Mayor will accept whatever the comity decides to be acceptable as a form of execution, though they both are pushing for the full suspension hanging or the short drop to be the fully legal and ratified method of execution within the city.
The Mayors popularity has increased over the past few days and the Deputy Mayors approval rating has remained steady at 70% even though he has only been in office for a few days. The People are mostly standing behind their leaders during this time of crisis and even though Deputy Mayor Kingsbury’s approval is 70% this is only with the suburban and inner city regions, he is disliked and distrusted in the upper districts and the executive and university regions. The Mayors approval rating has as well gone down within those regions as they do not approve of the war, the executions and increase in taxes to help fund the war.
The UCAS Congress has officially declared war against Seattle and will be sending additional forces and naval support to bring an end to this cities uprising. The President is confidant that he can restore order to the rebelling Seattle quickly and once again have the Emerald City under the governing body of the UCAS. He asks the citizens their to be patient and please report any rebellious activity to your local federal or military office. The city is officially split 50/50 in the war, and this division will make it hard for either side to make any true advancement. Military advisers for the UCAS are warning that Seattle will not submit easily and the forces they currently have on stand by are more than a match for many well trained companies. Also they warn to focus to much attention on Seattle will weaken other cities that are under siege by the Patriots and the Confederacy.
The Battle of the Federal District is currently stalemated, the Sons of the True Confederacy have taken most of the outer regions and have taken Norfolk naval Base with the assistance of both the Caribbean League and Patriots Atlantic fleet. The President is asking for any and all able bodied men to volunteer for military service to do there civil duty as Americans to help, if he needs to he will sign an executive order to reinstate the draft to replenish the forces needed to fight against the tyrants of the Patriots and Confederates.
The City’s elite are planed to gather on this evening for an awards ceremony and banquet for the hero’s of the Battle of Seattle, this is a by invitation only and the security in and around City Hall will be increased. Multiple city blocks surrounding City Hall will be closed to the public before, during and after the ceremony. So plan alternate routes and expect increased traffic congestion during this time. The ceremony will be televised on public access and broadcast throughout Seattle and all other locations within the UCAS and CAS that can receive the broadcast signal, it will as well be available through the Matrix to be streamed live. The Banquet will start at 6 pm till 10:30 pm
During the awards ceremony as Mayor Robert Hill was addressing the gathered elite and hero’s of the city, he was about to award Maximilian Yates aka Bilbo the highest of awards the Cross of Seattle for his heroism and bravery during the Battle of Fort Lewis; infamous criminal masterminds Mr. Black and the Professor both crashed the party and interrupted the mayor during his address for Bilbo. These men seemed insulted that they were left off the guest list, even though they both risked their lives in defence of the city. They continued to mock and insult the mayor as he placed the Cross of Seattle around Mr. Yates neck and then gave him the podium. As the mayor stepped back to allow Mr. Yates to address the eager audience, the two criminals flanked the mayor placing their arms across the mayors shoulders and continued the mock the poor mayor for what they called incompetence, and bringing up many questionable aspects of Mayor Hills background and his political career.
Though not to be overshadowed by the theatrics going on behind him, Mr. Yates gave a speech that sent the awaiting audience into a standing ovation, and prior during his words their was complete silence. He even caused Mr. Black and the Professor to be rendered silent, the words of this brave soul was heard from coast to coast and for only a few moments the entire country stood still.
After the Mayor stormed off stage after a few more words where exchanged between him and the two criminals, The ceremony was left to be closed out by the newly appointed Deputy Mayor Archibald Kingsbury. Seattle Police Department Internal Affairs division has been tasked by the Congressman Richard White to investigate the Mayor, SPD Commissioner Jeremy McNair has stated that he feels that everything will turn out fine and the mayors honour will be restored. Since this is obviously a tactic by two infamous criminals to discredit our honourable and dedicated mayor to benefit their own nefarious plots. “For crying out loud they are referred to as the Devil in White and the Devil in Black, enough is enough.”
Just after midnight down at the Runner Haven members of the infamous runner team the Devil’s Rejects unleashed a volley of vandalism by painting the parking lot and all parked vehicles in various colours of the rainbow. These runners as well entered the restaurant and caused a stir with the normal citizens by their presence, the Rejects all heavily armed and armoured took the place over and created a scene. The Joker began painting the walls, while the Pedagogue and Chemist sat and drank heavily. Tesla took control over the bar and throughout the night the rest of this dysfunctional team arrived, with Diablo and Baby Girl demanding diner theatre and forcing various patrons and staff to perform various scenes from multiple Shakespeare plays. The Rejects took complete control over the restaurant till the early morning hours, before Seattle Police Department arrived and the Devil’s Rejects fled the scene avoiding arrest. Investigating officer on scene said it looked worse then any college fraternity party he has ever broken up. The Rejects have been really making a name for themselves as vandals, lunatics and maniacs, a spokesman for the Runner Haven stated that “They will be invoicing the Devil’s Rejects for the damage and the food and bar tab they left behind.” He also stated that banning the Devil’s Rejects from entrance will not work cause; “One does not simply tell the Joker No.”

UCAS military forces assaulted the Runner Haven earlier today in an attempt to capture known Freedom Patriot Bilbo who was seen entering the establishment with an unknown female counterpart. The military forces where meet with a sever resistance from known runners the Wickerman, Bug and Achilles of the Deaths Hand. The fighting lasted only a few moments and left 23 UCAS soldiers dead and wounded before the known runners fled the scene. Known runner Bilbo and his counterpart managed to escape the scene unharmed, the UCAS has issued a federal arrest warrant for all parties involved in the attack on the military personal. The UCAS attempted to seize the Runner Haven under article 17683 of the UCAS Penal Code, though the attempt was thwarted when Seattle Police Department arrived on the scene and polity asked the military to vacate, this lead to a full blown assault between the remaining military personal and Seattle Police Department officers that arrived on scene.
Fighting between the two agencies was quick, and left many dead on both sides but eventually the SPD took control of the scene and forced the military to retreat, Sgt. Bookman of SPD said “The UCAS military has no place within the city of Seattle as long as they are still taking orders from the Tyrant General James O’Brian.” The damage to buildings exterior is minimal and the Haven will reopen for lunch on 12/20/73.

Detective Lionel was found hiding within the Lynnwood district and taken into custody. As per the UCAS penal code Detective Daniel Lionel was not granted a trial for the crime of being in concert with the terrorist and was taken to an undisclosed location to be executed by firing squad for treason during a time of war.
Unfortunately for the UCAS federal investigators they where unable to perform there sworn duty and where murdered by another fringe terrorist cell known as the Unforgiven. The Unforgiven systematically assassinated twelve sworn law officers of the UCAS and freed the terrorist Daniel Lionel, the UCAS Attorneys Office has declared Detective Daniel Lionel to be an enemy of the state and has added the murder of the twelve federal investigators to his list of crimes. UCAS Attorney General Richard Fredrick has reached out to Seattle’s first districts District Attorney David Branch to have the Seattle Police Department surrender Detective Lionel over to federal investigators. District Attorney Branch responded with a resounding “NO!” and then returned with a declaration of his own; “Any federal investigators, military investigators, and UCAS officials that remain in the city after December 21st 2073 shall be considered enemies of the City of Seattle and henceforth considered enemies of the state and shall be hunted and executed where they stand.” The UCAS Attorney General had no response to D.A. Branch’s threat. Mayor Robert Hill has issued a statement in light of the military and federal investigators being in the city, “Seattle is a free and independent city, no longer under the authority of the UCAS and NAN and with such any federal employee that remains inside Seattle after the deadline shall be considered an enemy to Seattle unless they are willing to become citizens of the City and forgo their UCAS citizenship.” The Mayors office has also decreed that Seattle will never allow any of it’s citizens, hero’s and police officers to fall victim to the tyranny of the UCAS ever again.
The Super Maximum Prison known as the Vault was assaulted and breeched this evening by an unknown assailant. This runner breached the Vaults well protected entrance and entered the facility in an attempt to assassinate the warden and his direct staff. Lucky for the warden that he was able to escape and has been taken to a safe location, his butler Errol was escorted off by federal authorities and placed in protective custody. Seattle Police Department is currently investigating this, but according to Special Agent Joshua Banks the PD are not taking this seriously and have handed the case over to rookie detectives. They seem to be more focused on the supposed false flag, then the forty five officers that lost their lives during this assault. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has taken control of the investigation and has removed Sargent Russell Bookman from heading the case do to his lacklustre interest in tracking down the assailant. This is the second time the Vault has been breached this year, the first assault led to the escape of known Confederate and Deaths Hand Terrorist Donovan Trask aka the Tin Man.
Seattle Police Department never bothered to investigate that breech and the murder of the five corrections officers that where murdered in the escape, it seems the good guys have taken interest in the Vault and have as well reopened the escape case. The FBI is currently seeking anyone with any information on the attacks on the Vault to come forward, they have also placed a 100,000 credit reward on information leading to he arrest and conviction of this man: this is the man who breeched the Vault and murdered 45 corrections officers and two prisoners.
Seattle Police Department’s Commissioner issued a statement; “We in the SPD are saddened by the tragic deaths of our fellow brothers in blue, and even though Federal Investigators felt that we were not taking this breech and the deaths of forty-five of our brothers seriously. Seattle Police Department was fully embedded into the investigation and capturing the killer. We had one of our most senior major case Detectives heading the investigation and created a special task force of Homicide, Magic Division and Major Case to front this investigation and capture the suspect.” He also stated; ” The Federal Investigators and Military Investigators had no business being at the scene and this case happened in Seattle and henceforth is a Seattle Police Department case and not a federal one, any Federal Investigator caught pursuing this case shall be guilty of impeding a ongoing investigation and tampering with evidence and witness and shall find themselves with a permanent home inside the Vault.” The UCAS Attorney General responded with; “The Federal Government has the right to supersede any local investigation and as much as Seattle want’s to pretend to be a free and independent state, this is nothing but a lie. Seattle is and always will be property and part of the UCAS and no illegal activity will ever change this.” The Commissioner simply rebutted with “The People have spoken, and it wasn’t our ass’s that crawled away like scolded little children!” The UCAS Attorney didn’t respond to the Commissioner. The investigation is still ongoing.
<<<<<<MEDIA BLACKOUT>>>>>>>> All signals have been lost….Sorry for any inconvenience, technicians are working swiftly to restore service to your area,
It is a sad day for the O’Brian family, Jonathan O’Brian junior the youngest son of Senator John O’Brian was found earlier this morning by the domestic staff. His body had been hoisted up in the chimney in the family home in the Redwood district of Seattle, the young boy suffered a long an painful death of being cooked inside the chimney. The young boy was found when the senior butler was preparing the fireplace for the Senator, and noticed a pungent smell followed by smoke filling the room, when he went to check the flue he noticed the body and contacted Seattle Police Department and Emergency Medical Management. The boy was pronounced dead at the scene and was removed by the medical examiners office, Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Sherman Finesilver took the case and is heading the autopsy of the minor O’Brian. Seattle Police Detectives currently have no leads and the investigation is still ongoing.
The City held it’s Seventy-Third annual festival of lights this evening, during the celebration Deputy Mayor Archibald Kingsbury addressed the people of the city announcing that the Senators have worked long and hard and where signing as he spoke the Cities new Constitution and Declaration of Independence. This was meet with a mixture of emotions from the people as he had the flag of the UCAS cut down and burned, while he hoisted the old American Flag. Followed by the igniting of the holiday lights and fireworks, he ended his speech with this is a time of peace and time to be one with your neighbours, lets put the politics behind us and have a wonderful holiday season.
Though as the festival was ending and the citizens where leaving and heading home, fighting broke out between the UCAS Military and members of the Sons of Liberty and Sons of the True Confederacy. Who fired the first shots is still up to debate, but according to eyewitnesses the military was assaulting the fair rounds and the security forces attempted to defend the citizens from being killed by the UCAS. Other eyewitnesses the Confederates assaulted first and where going after citizens and the UCAS military stepped into to protect them from harm. What we do know is terrorists Mars, Buddy, Moonshine, Liberty, Powder Keg, Maestro, Postmaster, Forge, and the Unforgiven engaged the UCAS military and when the smoke cleared 37 UCAS soldiers where dead, as well as 12 mercenaries from the terrorists.
Eyewitness reports also indicate that Buddy from the Confederates was seen prior to the assault speaking with Bilbo, Arctic, Spade, Ferris, Detective Daniel Lionel and Detective DiCane referred to as Tic Tac. He gave these individuals advanced warning and a means of escape. Federal Investigators are currently looking for these individuals for their part in the unwarranted murder of the UCAS soldiers. Federal Arrest Warrants have been issued for all individuals involved, including the Deputy Mayor for his involvement in the criminal act of secession and destruction of UCAS property.
According to reports while the Mayor was addressing the City Senate just after he signed the new Constitution and Deceleration a snipers bullet entered the Mayors Head and he was killed at the scene. Seattle Police Department quickly locked the building down and began to search for the assassin, the assassin had managed to evade capture and still at large. All Seattle Police Department found in the viewing chambers was a native hawk feather, with blood stripes and notches taken out of it. The Feather had beads attached to it and it seemed to have fallen off the assassins garments during the escape. Seattle Police Department have issued the following statement “We are saddened, and outraged by this direct assault on our brave leader and statesmen. Mayor Robert Hill has dedicated his life to the service of this city and he will be surly missed. The SPD have no other cases till the Mayors Assassin is brought to Justice.” The Deputy Mayor also made statement as he was being rushed off to be sworn in as Mayor of Seattle; “Let this be heard, let our enemies know this, The full weight of the City, the Full weight of the Patriots and Confederates will come crushing down upon all those that are behind this. Mayor Hill was not only a friend and ally he was a brother in this war, and mark my words, you will come to regret the day you crossed Colonial!”
The New Mayor Archibald Kingsbury has just authorised his units the Rough Riders, The Minutemen, The Rattlers, The Unforgiven and the Devil Dogs to be the Cities newest guardians and protectors of the people. He also issued a direct threat to the UCAS and NAN that you will be rounded up and either ousted from Seattle of you will be executed where you stand. My Citizens and Mayor Robert Hill did not shed their blood and sacrifice their lives to lay down like a wounded dog. If you thought Mayor Hill was a rat bastard, you have never dealt with the likes of me before, He also issued a direct challenge to General James O’Brian to show himself and report to the Capital for a duel.
In the few hours Mayor Kingsbury has been in-charge he has authorised the destruction of every UCAS Federal Building in the City and has unleashed Category 5, Fusion, Artillery of the Sons of Liberty and Pyre, Moonshine and Buddy of the Sons of the True Confederacy to begin the assault. Mayor Kingsbury is not taking the assassination of Mayor Robert Hill lying down and has become very proactive in the investigation. He has also authorised the continual carpet bombing of Fort Lewis till that base is nothing more then a memory, He stands with the people in wanting to send a very strong message to the UCAS leadership that Seattle is free and any traitor that is found will be sent back to the UCAS in a box or bag. He has decreed that yes the city remains under martial law, and will so till the last of the traitors blood has been rooted from Seattle.
He also decreed that the condemned to be hung on the 23rd of this month will continue on as planed, though he will be wearing a hood, the media is banned from the execution chamber, and his hanging will be a suspension hanging in accordance to the legal execution method written within the cities new bi laws. Mayor Kingsbury also did away with the military style trials during martial law and restored civilian trials, though he only allows one appeal that will be heard by the City Senates Judiciary Committee. He also issued a warning to all judges and lawyers both prosecution and defence that they will be watched very closely from hear on; any sign of corruption and it could be them in the noose.
This reporter is a bit nervous having a direct military commander in command of the City of Seattle, but it might just be what Seattle needs. Mayor Kingsbury is not a politician and is not swayed by nuances of political correctness, he is doing what is needed for the City and her People. Mayor Kingsbury just might be the shinning light this city needs, he is a strong, no bull, no surrender and unrelenting force. Though he needs to be careful to not cross the line for he now has the eyes and ears of the city on him and we need his guidance now more then ever. Mayor Kingsbury you have my respect but please keep Seattle safe and restore this cities faith in her leaders.

The UCAS military has been pushed back to the protect the Capital buildings and the White House from the Confederate forces, the Freedom Patriots have unleashed a flurry of assaults against the Federal District’s northern boarders and threaten to breach the northern city limits. General McDougall of the UCAS 43rd infantry division has stated that even though the Confederates are giving it all they have, never fear the Federal District will not fall in rebel hands as the UCAS will hold strong. President Edward Davis was unable to reached to give a statement about the progress of the war.
Fighting has as well broke out on the Oklahoma border and the Tennessee Boarder with Confederate forces striking hard against the UCAS forces there. General Emmett Bird stated that the Tennessee division and Tennessee Elite will continue to fight throughout the coming days to free there home from the UCAS Tyrants. They will not adhere to the Christmas ceasefire and will give the UCAS hell throughout the holidays, the same has been said General Morley Shepherd of the Oklahoma division and Oklahoma Guard. They will not stop fighting till there states are free of Yankee scum and the Yankees lay stiff in southern dirt. The UCAS President has reached out to the Confederates to put there weapons down for the holidays and allow for this to a season of peace for all citizens both Confederate and UCAS. President Davis responded to the UCAS President with a resounding NO and he authorised additional forces to invade West Virginia. When Mayor Archibald Kingsbury was asked about the Confederate invasion of the UCAS and his thoughts on this, Kingsbury replied with “I will stand aligned with my Confederate allies and support there attempt to rid this nation of the blasted False Flag. Mayor Kingsbury also known as General Kingsbury aka Colonial of the Patriots has authorised additional forces to assault the northern boarders of Tennessee and Oklahoma, he has also sent aid to the Confederate forces assaulting West Virginia.
Seeing Seattle as a guiding force the cities of Detroit, New York, Bug City, Philadelphia and even sections of Denver have risen up and begun to strike back at the UCAS in an attempt to win their independence from the UCAS. The President of the UCAS is asking for all citizens in these cities to put down their weapons and return to there homes. Claiming that Seattle has not legally won it’s independence and will eventually return to it’s proper place within the UCAS. NAN forces are confident they can restore order to the troubled Denver and it’s Denver Guard will quickly silence any uprising. The vast majority of the citizens of the UCAS and NAN do not support the fighting and wish to remain part of the UCAS and are troubled by the uprisings and rebellions that have been breaking out. These citizens are begging for the fighting to cease and for everyone to come to their senses, Seattle was wrong and like a troubled child it will be put back in it’s place.
This image was taken from the remaining video evidence that was available after the Judicial Mishap operation, this was taken moments before the runners assaulted the courthouse killing hundreds of innocent civilians, court officers and police officers. This image should concern all citizens, as it shows the runners known as Ringmaster and Captain working in concert during this operation, according to security reports this call was the one that started the blood bath and the Ringmaster and Captain worked in unison slaughtering all who stood in their path. What is even more disturbing is Ringmaster and Captain are allies and we know that Captain is a member of the Deaths Hand and one of their loose end cleaners and the Ringmaster works for Seattle Police Department as the Captain of the Magical Division. If these men where allies back in the 2040’s their is no reason they would not still be allied today, once scum always scum.
“Mark my words the enemies of Seattle, and heed my warning the Captain has witnessed the degradation of everything we fought for, and I have taken it onto myself to bring justice to the fallen Mayor. I Seattle, I am your Sin Eater and I will bring down the hydra that has roosted itself within your boarders. I will be on the hunt to destroy all who still swear allegiance to the False Flag, I will bring down Seattle’s enemies one by one till I have rooted out the core of the evil that has taken hold. The bodies will begin to fall like rain, the blood will flow like a river and False Flag will come crumbling down in great blazing effigy. I Captain of the Deaths Hand will restore order to Seattle once and for all, I Captain of the Rough Riders will bring Justice to the fallen, and I Captain citizen of the United States of America will not stop till the fires of freedom are ignited once again. I will bath in the blood of the guilty and will walk through the valley of death to guarantee freedom absolute for the citizens of Seattle. Mark my words Seattle, death will come crawling and deaths name is Captain you either stand with me, or you are against me.” <<<Broadcast End>>>
On the evening of December 22nd at the restaurant known as the Runner Haven, Government authorities where ambushed while they tried to execute a legally binding arrest warrant for the owner Maximilian Yates. The government agents where ambushed by local and international terrorists the Wolf Pack, Law Dog, Flower, Buddy, Moon Shine, Bueller, Bilbo, Showman and Kit Kat. The agents were assaulted with automatic fire, hellish magic and explosives before they even had a chance to properly announce themselves and show the warrant. These runners attacked the agents unprovoked and murdered each one of them in cold blood as well as killing countless innocent civilians and causing millions in property damage.
As if the fighting in the parking lot wasn’t bad enough, Wolf Pack members Ducky, Gunslinger, Gargoyle and Shadow entered the Runner Haven and laid waste to all Federal Agents and innocent civilians that were inside. According to eyewitness the runner known as Ducky upon entering the Haven drew his pistol and fired three shots killing a young mother and her child and then shooting an unarmed federal agent who was waiting inside for his meal. Ducky then stepped on the child’s head as he continued to open fire randomly into the crowd, the rest of the runners in the haven made short work of the agents and citizens inside the establishment.
The fighting outside was fast and furious as the Wolf Pack and the Harbingers assaulted the agents unprovoked and Bilbo fired a Light Anti Tank Weapon into a civilian van. Buddy and Moonshine physically assaulted and murdered citizen and agent alike, reports indicate the two men said “Lets do this Southern Style as they butchered all in their path. Law Dog slaughtered innocent civilians with the wrath of a mana blast spell and the Ringmaster and Showman unleashed the fires from hell upon the remaining innocents on scene. Flower and Bueller both murdered citizen and agent alike, reports indicate that they stated “Kill’em All, let God sort them out!” Kit Kat and Ace both unleashed a hellish attack of explosives and vehicle barrage onto the citizens and the property while Stamps was seen physically assaulting and bashing the brains in of the innocent on seen.
When the smoke cleared the runners fled the scene before reinforcements arrived, to secure the scene. Once the reinforcements arrived they where met with a vast resistance from members of the Devil Dogs, The Devils Rejects, the Devil Rats and the Unforgiven. Needless to say the government being severely out numbered was slaughtered and the runners were seen laughing over the bodies of your fallen soldiers and officers. The Joker was seen peeing in the mouth of one of the senior agents he wounded prior to shooting him in the stomach and watching him die. Bastard of the Devil Rats was seen stomping on the skulls of the wounded playing as he called it Whack A Mole, while the Chemist, Mandrake and Kit Kat prepared to torch the bodies in a great blazing effigy.
Reports from the fireman and medics that arrived at seen, said that it looked like a war zone and even the seasoned rescue agents had to look away at times from the carnage as it was to disturbing. First reports indicate that 64 civilians 36 federal agents and 24 military personal all lay dead and their bodies violated at the end of the slaughter at the Haven brought on by the runners. Federal Investigators are still on the scene going through the bodies and once they have compiled a list of the fallen it will be made public. The UCAS is asking for help apprehending the suspects responsible for the murders and is offering 100,000 credit reward for each one of the murderers to be paid out after arrest and execution. The UCAS is also asking for any citizen that had any friends or relatives that have gone missing after spending the evening down at the Runner Haven to contact your local Federal Office with items containing DNA evidence to make the identification process easier, grief counsellors available upon request.
Mayor Kingsbury couldn’t be reached for a comment regarding this slaughter.
Saint Luke’s Presbyterian Church in the Bowery is thanking Detective Anthony DiCane for his heartfelt donation, Reverend Carroll stated that he will be able to add the new wing to the church now and he will be able to expand his outreach program for the homeless and destitute thanks to the generosity of Anthony DiCane.
HRM Assassin the Stiletto was captured by federal authorities and has been taken to an undisclosed federal prison to face execution after properly interrogated.
Federal Investigators have frozen the accounts of one Reverend Christopher Carroll on money laundering and connections to a known terrorist Law Dog. The Reverend has been arrested and is awaiting trial in federal court, for his connection to Law Dog and the terrorists within Seattle, Reverend Carroll proclaims his innocence and has stated that he in know way has involved himself in the politics of this war, he is a messenger of the Lord and is only trying to help the people of the city. The Donation was nothing more then a Donation and if he is to face the gallows for doing the Lords work then so be it.
The People in the Bowery have begun to assemble in the good reverend’s name and are protesting the actions of the UCAS being inside the independent Seattle. The Government has heard the people and have stated that Reverend Carroll’s trial will be televised and if found guilty he will hang by the neck for treason against the UCAS.
Just after the Reverend’s arrest Captain and Gumby assaulted the UCAS department of Justice building, killing countless inside before capturing the UCAS Attorney General (Seattle Division) and have made an offer to the UCAS for a trade, the innocent reverend for the Attorney General. They gave the UCAS a deadline of 11:59 on December 25th 2073 or Madeline Rivers will be executed in a very unceremoniously manner. The UCAS has yet to comment on the Captains demands and they seem to be calling his bluff.
Mayor Kingsbury has authorised a manhunt for the safe return of Reverend Carroll and has dispatched Arctic, Spade, Noir, Gumshoe, Five, Eraser, Hound and the Reaper to mount a rescue operation and he has stated gloves off to these men. This will be a very bloody holiday season with these men on the hunt with no holds bared. It appears are war hawk mayor has just showed his true colours and that he really doesn’t care what happens to the people of the city, during this war. The Mayor needs to stay out of the investigation and arrest of Reverend Carroll for this is a federal matter and not a city matter, to unleash known runners and madmen upon innocent federal employees just doing there job to restore law and order is lunacy.
General James O’Brian is asking for the assistance of any and all able bodied citizens of the UCAS to join the fight and volunteer for active service in the UCAS military. The military is doubling there sign on bonus and offering any citizen free college for life as well as free living expenses at anyone of the many Citizen’s Only Communities throughout the UCAS. All you need to do is sign up for a 3 year active service contract and a 2 year reserve duty contract. Starting Salary of 40,000 credits and your choice of military occupation and branch, if you sign up before the draft being reinstated. After the Draft is reinstated all current offers are suspended; Salary would be 15,000 credits and all basic enlistment offers as well as no choice on branch and occupation.
During the UCAS holiday party at Fort Lewis members of the legendary Urban Strike Team One, broke into secure MATRIX servers and stole valuable intelligence data, and then fought their way out of the base. These former soldiers killed dozens of there fellow soldiers in an attempt to escape and defect to the Freedom Patriots with sensitive intelligence. If this data falls into the wrong hands it can be a matter of national security, Urban Strike members Major Drake Nixon aka Bolt and Staff Sargent Reggie Fields aka Laser defected and have become traitors to the UCAS. A spokesman for the UCAS Army has stated “This is why you never trust a runner, these men are a plague and should be put down like the animals they are.” General James O’Brian was unable to be reached to give a comment on this situation.
The UCAS has deemed that Bolt and Laser are enemies of the state and they are to be considered armed and extremely dangerous, these men where last seen heading into the Lynnwood District. There is a 10,000,000 credit bounty placed on the heads of both men by the UCAS for there treasonous actions and the theft of secure data files.
The UCAS has called a ceasefire for the Holiday Season out of respect to the citizens and soldiers on both sides of the fight. President Johnson has decreed that the people of this great nation deserve a time of peace. The Cease fire will last from 0001 hours on the 24th till 2400 hours on the 1st of the January of 2074. President Johnson hopes that the rebels will respect the ceasefire and the wishes of the people of the United Canadian American States.
The Showman was spotted exiting a helicopter on the roof of the Seattle Police Departments Police Precinct One after the fighting that accord at the Runner Haven early this week. He was meet by police Commissioner Jeremy McNair and the two engaged in a in-depth conversation about the events that transpired and the Showman was seen handing the Commissioner a data file before he returned to the the helicopter. It seems that even in the hight of war the Showman is still all about making an entrance, reports indicate the Showman was highly intoxicated when he was dealing with the Commissioner and was in the mitts of a celebration as he was drinking the entire time.
The Mayors rescue force attacked the Federal Plaza One later this evening to rescue Reverend Christopher Carroll, the strike force entered the Federal Plaza and was meet with minimal resistance. They where successful in abducting the Reverend from federal custody, though they did murder a number of federal employees in the process of rescuing the prisoner. Reverend Carroll was being held on charges of aiding and abiding a known war criminal and terrorist, receiving undocumented funds and money laundering, and treason against the UCAS. He is now being charged with murder of federal employees, destruction of federal property, escape from federal custody, and being in concert with known terrorists and runners.
The Mayors attack on the Federal Plaza was timed with multiple attacks on other federal locations and as well as federal housing locations. There was as well an attack on Federal Building 22 at by a known war tribe from Detroit known only as the Raiders. These attacks caused extreme property damage as well as the death of many federal employees and their families. Category 5 was seen leaving the federal housing building The Eagles Nest shortly before it imploded and came crumbling down. These timed attacks caused federal authorities and the military defences to be divided and separated allowing the prime team to assault Federal Plaza One and rescue the Reverend.
The Mayors strike team took the prisoner to a unknown location, and have confirmed the Reverend to be in good health and alive. Meanwhile the Deaths Hand operator the Captain once confirmation was received of the Reverends rescue, he sent the UCAS Attorney General Madeline Rivers back to her family in multiple bags. He had Gumby place her severed head on the families outside Christmas tree and then he placed the clear plastic bags containing her remains on the snow covered porch.
Members of the Freedom Patriots and Sons of the True Confederacy ignored the Presidents cease fire as the assaulted members of the United Canadian American States military and law enforcement as they attended worship service at Saint Michaels Roman Catholic Church. These killers ambushed the officials in the parking lot of the church. Reports indicate that these soulless monsters even assaulted federal officials inside the church as they prepared for Mass. President Johnson is outraged by the lack of respect the rebels have shown towards the the UCAS soldiers during the ceasefire and has made a statement “Citizens of the UCAS, this assault on unarmed members of the UCAS authority and their families by the faithless heathens in the Freedom Patriots and Sons of the True Confederacy shows you just what type of monsters they are. They have no respect for ones faith, they have no respect for your safety, and they have no respect for this time of peace. They have no honour and have taken to tactics that are against all normal rules of engagement. If you as a nation are as outraged as I am about their actions then stand with the UCAS and stand with you military as we root out the evil from the nation. These monsters need to brought to justice and we need your help citizens of the UCAS, we need your patriotism and we need your support in these troubled times. Please join me in a moment of silence for all the poor souls that perished in this evenings senseless assault. ..God Bless us all,
<<<<< Rebuttal to the above lies from the brainwashed and spoon feed blind journalists of the UCAS…..Citizens of the UCAS and Seattle, believe nothing you read from the mainstream media. They have been corrupted by the False Flag and are spoon feeding you nothing but lies each and everyday. They are the masters of spin and have taken everything and twisted it to their advantage, the attack on the Runner Haven was a lie. The UCAS agents perpetrated the assault and are responsible for doctoring the numbers of the fallen and the events, though what they didn’t count on was we in the Sons Of Liberty have video evidence of the assault. This video evidence comes from security cameras in the Runner Haven and as well from the parking lot cameras go to MATRIX address <##$09772686502> to see the footage we will do our best to keep it live.
And now for the assault at the Saint Michaels again this was nothing more then a lie, the supposed heathens did not assault the church or the members inside the church. I know this do to I was sitting in the Church attending Christmas Mass with friends, and brothers in arms, the supposed innocent federal authorities that were killed on the inside where in fact removed to the outside of the Church before any action was taken. Sons of the True Confederacy Forces and Sons of Liberty forces only took action when the Federal Agents attempted to draw their weapons and make an attempt on those of us in attendance. <##^%$47788987> For video evidence of the parking lot attacks.
We have acknowledged the Ceasefire and are more then willing to lay our weapons down in respect to the holidays and the time of peace, but this ceasefire is nothing more then another attempt by the False Flag to make us appear to be monsters in the eyes of the people. They draw first blood, they assault us with the intent to kill and cause harm, we defend ourselves and defend the innocent civilians and we are in return dubbed monsters.
People of Seattle don’t be fooled by the lies being told by the False Flag, they are scared, they are wounded and they have there backs to the wall. They are trying to use the media to turn the tides of this war and turn you the people against us, turn you the people into mindless cattle that they can use as fodder for there betterment. Remember my good citizens as John F Kennedy once said “All you need for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing.” and this my citizens is what they want and need. They need you to do nothing and sit by and support them as they indoctrinate you into there grand scheme.
Please people of Seattle and the UCAS understand that you are being lied to by the media of the UCAS, you are being force feed what they want you to see and hear, and they are counting on you standing ideally by and supporting them blindly. You will be rounded up, the camps are open and the Citizens Only Programs have been activated. These programs are designed to furthermore control and keep the population controlled, they need you scared, they need you to need them. Open your eyes, my citizens and see the writing on the walls, its there the truth is out there; stand united with us or die divided under the rule of the False Flag. God Bless each and everyone of us, for this my citizens is our Deceleration Day and we must stand united.
From the Office of Mayor Kingsbury: We in the Mayors Office, Seattle Police Department and all affiliated agencies and departments as well as those in the Senate and Congress wish each and every citizen of the Emerald City a very Happy Holiday’s. We wish for you all to have a safe and wonderful holiday season, please travel safely and enjoy the hospitality of our fair city.
Dr. Sherman Finesilver of the Medical Examiners Office wishes everyone a Happy Holidays and please don’t drink and drive, he can wait to see you. and from Chief Rodger McMillion of the Seattle Fire Department, please citizens remember to turn the auto cookers off before you leave the house.

Meanwhile at the residential building runners Wipe Out, Grave, Casket, Outback, Wickerman and Ash broke into the sleeping quarters of Jack France, holding his family hostage till he agreed to leave with the runners. The runners did kill many security officers on duty in the residential building and there where five accidental civilian causalities from the ensuing fire fight.
Jack France is currently missing and presumed dead, as he was last seen being loaded into a body bag and being slung over the shoulder of known runner Casket. The UCAS is sickened by this blatant attack, seeing it as a breach of the cease fire, yet again perpetrated by the Freedom Patriots. The Mayor’s spokesman Reverdy Davis made a statement “The actions of the shadowrunners is no way authorised and in no way an act of war by any member of the Patriots or Confederates. This was an independent action by freelance runners with no loyalties sworn to the Mayor or any of his allies. Any act of retribution from the UCAS will be seen as an act of war and dealt with accordingly.”
Mr. Frances family has issued a plea to the runners for a safe return of there beloved husband and father, in the spirit of the holidays. Seattle Police Department is not even bothering to investigate the assault, the murders or the abduction. Stating that only citizens of the city of Seattle shall warrant any use of department manpower. A officer of the enemy is not worth the manpower, also knowing Caskets reputation all you will be getting back is a box of ash. The UCAS is considering Mr. Jack France to be already deceased and he leaves behind a wife, a son age 6 and a daughter age 10.
Runners Owl, Whisper, Cobra, Arctic, Vicar, Polaris and Spade assaulted the NAN embassy of the Ute Nation here in Seattle this afternoon. They entered the building quickly and in a matter of minutes they depopulated the embassy building before torching the building. This assault is in direct violation to the cease fire seeing that Spade is a known member of the Rough Riders. The Mayors office rebutted that Spade was not working on behalf of the Mayor or any of his allies at the time. Spade was working as a freelance agent and hence forth this assault was in no way a violation of the cease fire. This marks the second NAN embassy to be struck and all inside to be brutally murdered, NAN officials have stated they will not sit ideally by and allow there citizens and government officers to be struck down with no retribution. Mayor Kingsbury retorted with “For every one American citizen that died during the ghost dance and nights of blood, we will bury five of yours; hurts doesn’t it? When the shoe is on the other foot.”
The UCAS is still on the hunt for rogue agents Bolt and Laser, they have authorised military personnel to go door to door in the Lynnwood district to search the homes of all citizens. Any citizen that refuses to allow military personnel inside there home will be assumed guilty of treason and they will be detained till there home, personal records and private information is thoroughly gone through. General O’Brian is asking for the citizens to just consent to the searches to make the process go smoothly. Any resistance will be seen as an attempt to hinder a federal investigation and the personnel have been given full authorization to use whatever force is needed to locate these traitors. The UCAS thanks the citizens of Lynnwood for there cooperation during these trying times for our beloved nation,
A group of unknown runners assaulted Federal Building 17 in the university district this afternoon, they entered through the front door directly after electronic and MATRIX security went dark. According to witnesses they made short work of the guards in the lobby before making there way up to twelfth floor, the runners struck with military precision and where in and out of the building in under five minutes. They left twenty four guards and seven citizens dead and ten citizens where wounded in the assault, federal authorities are baffled by the assault and are unsure what the runners where after. Investigators are on scene currently and more information will be released as it becomes available.
Eyewitness have stated that just after 1300 hours a group of six individuals clad in black armour and masks entered the lobby, and began opening fire with automatic weapons, their leader was wielding a glowing katana that was slicing through the pillars as he engaged the security officers. within seconds the witness reports the runners had slaughtered everyone in the lobby and disappeared up the stairs. That’s when the witness ran from the restroom in terror and contacted the authorities. By the time federal authorities arrived the runners where long gone, the witness is currently being held in protective custody.
News Archive: <Photograph from the Hero’s of Seattle Banquet on December 16th 2073> It appears the Deaths hand is more then welcome within the city of Seattle, another photo taken from the banquet honouring those that fought to defend Seattle from the UCAS military. This photo shows long time friends Devils Reject Phoenix (left) and Deaths Hand Commander War Machine (right) posing for a photo before the grand event. This is another sign of how the leadership of this fine city is failing and sending the wrong message to to it’s citizens. These men should not be honoured, these men are known felons and international criminals, instead of honouring them they should have been arrested and brought to justice for the crimes they have committed and for the murder of countless innocent soldiers they slaughtered during the battle.
<Photograph from the Hero’s of Seattle Banquet on December 16th 2073> Here is another Deaths Hand member being photographed with one of our cities employees. Deaths Hand assassin Captain (right) and Doctor Sherman Finesilver ME (left) take a break from the excitement of the evening to pose for a photo opportunity. The Captain is a known international criminal with warrants out for his arrest on six continents and has been seen paling around with one of our cities officials Dr. Finesilver the Chief Medical Examiner. According to my sources these two men have been friends for over thirty years when Dr. Finesilver went by another name. He was known by the handle of Striker and was a mercenary fighting against the innocent Natives. This is another sign citizens that your cities leaders are not looking out for your best interests as they have dubbed the Captain a hero and they have hired Striker on as the Chief Medical Examiner.
ATTENTION CITIZENS OF SEATTLE: (Photo courtesy of a still from the security footage from the Imperial Towers) Federal Officer Sebastian Wheeler has gone missing shortly after his encounter with these two men, He was last seen inside the Imperial Towers on December 24th, 2073 at approximately 1900 hours.

<Footage taken from security cameras at Police Precinct One on December 8th 2073> Another sign of the Deaths Hands alliance with the city of Seattle, Famed Police Detective Anthony DiCane (left) seen having a civil conversation with known international war criminal War Machine (right). War Machine is one of the commanders of the Deaths Hand and personally responsible for the siege in England with his infamous Panzer Division. Sources indicate these men had a lengthy conversation, and afterwords sat down for a cup of coffee. Detective DiCane then allowed terrorist War Machine to leave, Detective DiCane then went back inside the precinct. What is going on inside our police department that they allow a known wanted felon to walk away from them without even attempting to arrest the suspect. Think of how many innocent civilians could have been spared in England if War Machine was arrested on that day.
Once again the boarder between the Lynnwood district and the Bowery has yet again been placed under the direct threat of blockade. Though this time the blockades seem to have been placed by the domestic terrorists known as the Freedom Patriots. These blockades included deployed spike stripes and makeshift barricades, that once the civilians vehicle was rendered immobile. The terrorists would then unload automatic gunfire into the vehicles killing all civilians inside then leaving the vehicle to block the passage into the Bowery or vice a versa. Any additional that would then approach the greasily scene would as well be fired upon.
It seems the Patriots are as well trying to blockade the city like the UCAS military did earlier this month. It didn’t take them long to show their true colours, and similar blockades have been spotted in the Upper Seddle, Lower Seddle, Rivers Edge, Iron Side and Hells Kitchen. The UCAS is urging citizens to please report the sighting of any of there makeshift blockades to the proper federal authorities.
In the early morning hours there was yet another gangland attack in Hells Kitchen between the Hellions and the Guardians. This attack was directed mostly around the boarders of Alphabet City and last many hours before Seattle Police Department was able to arrive on scene and restore order. Their where approximately twelve casualties from the ensuing fire fight, Seattle Police Department has made multiple arrests and they are currently investigating the scene.
At the bus stop on Avenue D in Alphabet city early this morning there was a gruesome discovery. A family of five was discovered by Private Detective Richard Tracey and reported to Seattle Police Departments Special Unit Task Force. This appears to be yet another victim of the feared Psycho serial killer, Seattle Police Detectives Anthony DiCane and Daniel Lionel have been placed as lead investigators on the Psycho killings. Captain Benjamin Mathews was quoted “Citizens of Alphabet City, please be patient and understand that we have made this case and the capture of the Psycho are number one priority. Please rest easy, and trust the police, we are doing the best we can to brig this mad man to justice.” This does little to satisfy the locals of this troubled region that have been dealing with this madman for over a decade. Seattle Police Department currently have no leads and are once again reaching out to the public for assistance in identifying the suspect.
The Deaths Hand has yet again made another attempt to grab control of Seattle, this time they assaulted the Holiday Sixx a roadside motel killing numerous patrons that were in the federal witness protection, before making an assault on the Bowery Tube Station. Deaths Hand members slaughtered countless citizens, security, and personnel before fleeing the scene when Seattle Police Department officers arrived on scene. The Deaths Hand as well assaulted a number of other Tube Stations throughout Seattle and they also assaulted the Seattle International Airport. These attacks caused countless injuries and deaths, as well as millions in property damage. They also ground travel to a halt during the post Christmas travel, all planes have been grounded and there are no flights in and out of Seattle until further notice, as the Mayor has deemed Seattle a No Fly Zone. Fearing another larger assault from the dreaded Deaths Hand. Deaths Hand Agents Sleepwalker, Scarecrow, Patches, Wraith, Captain, and Outlander where scene at the various assaults.
The Deaths Hand as assaulted East Willow Avenue in Western Lynnwood, they unleashed a hail of auto cannon fire into many of the small homes on that street during the early morning hours. Deaths Hand Agents Rampage and Whistler where spotted during this assault. There are no suspected survivors to this assault as Rampage made certain that the homes he struck where left in nothing more than a burning heap.
Deaths Hand Agents Ticker and Polaris where spotted along with Deaths Hand rigger Smoky in the Lower Seddle section of the city during these attacks. When these war criminals were approached by federal authorities, they where meet with a swift execution at the hands of the Deaths Hand. The presence of the Deaths Hand inside Seattle once again, has all worried that Alexander is preparing for yet another full scale invasion.
At approximately 1300 hours a full scale assault took place on Main Street in the Hillsdale district of Seattle, members of the Human Resistance Movement, Deaths Hand, Freedom Patriots, Sons of the True Confederacy were assaulting some sort of enemy that was using cloaking technology. Unfortunately many citizens fell victim to these attacks and when approached for a quote Mayor Kingsbury stated ” I am sickened by these attacks and the loss of innocent life. You can rest assured that none of the citizens fell to the bullets of the Patriots or Confederates as they are here to protect each and everyone of you.” These words come just moments after Elite Patriot strike force known as the Unforgiven were spotted engaging an unknown enemy. A vast majority of the witnesses to the event can’t remember anything beyond a few moments prior to the attacks starting, and Main Street has been declared a disaster zone. This street is now officially closed to the public and scheduled for demolition, Human Resistance Commander John Ripley has officially announced that he would make sure those citizens displaced by the demolition would be able to return to a fully renovated, and updated street. The homes, apartments and business would be financed by the Human Resistance Movement and donated to the city as a show of good faith. The scene is currently under investigation by the Seattle Police Department, and quarantined off from the public.
Also in Hillsdale, members of the Devil’s Rejects where spotted causing havoc to a an old sewer treatment plant, they assaulted the federal authorities that guarded the plant. Killing all on scene minus one that was found with a grenade duct taped into his mouth, the other guards and workers where all found dead. The plant didn’t seem to be touched in any manner, minus a computer terminal that was torn from the wall by Diablo When federal investigators arrived on scene the first wave was forced to retreat do to a chemical bomb that exploded when they tried to enter the plant, this gas destroyed the skin of three of the investigators killing them instantly, and the other three where overtaken by the fumes and rushed to Seattle general hospital where the remain in critical condition.
The surviving guard, has been cleared and released from the scene after receiving emergency medical treatment. The grenade that was in his mouth was taken by federal investigators to the Federal Building. Though while in route the convoy was assaulted by the Devil Rats and they left no survivors. Witness on scene stated they saw Devil Rat Pallbearer handing the Chemist a grenade saying “I believe this is your’s.” the Chemist responded with “Well that was a jolly good time, Cheerio Old Chap.”
According to an anonymous source there has been a break in the Sebastian Wheeler case. The unknown individuals last scene with the federal agent are vigilante Casper (right) and founding father Autopsy (left). Lead investigator Greg Oswald doesn’t have any faith in the safe return of Special Agent Sebastian Wheeler and fears that his body will never be found. The runners he was last scene with are not known for leaving very much behind, and they are also not known for their tolerance towards the UCAS. We can only hope that Wheeler was given a quick and painless death, though knowing Autopsy this was probably not the case.
Special Agent Greg Oswald is currently asking for the assistance of the people and the cooperation of the Seattle Police Department in apprehending these two felons on capital murder and kidnapping charges.
Known Human Resistance Movement assassin Stiletto has escaped federal custody on the eve of his execution. He was being held in a undisclosed federal compound. Stiletto managed to slip free of his bonds and escape his cell killing six federal correction officers before vanishing into the darkness. Federal Authorities are on the look out for this man, he is to be considered armed and extremely danger WANTED: Marco Lombardo aka Stiletto (HRM Assassin wanted for multiple murders of elven nationals, the murder of the Elven Ambassador to Italy, Murder of 24 UCAS officials, military personnel and law enforcement, Murder of 6 federal corrections officers, and escape from federal prison. He is to be considered armed and extremely dangerous. Contact your local UCAS federal agency with any information about the suspect known as Stiletto.
Attention Citizens Of Seattle: The Deaths Hand Terrorist Organization has assaulted the Lower Settle section of the city this evening, Polaris and Ticker have destroyed the Lower Settle power station, rendering more than half of Seattle to be without power. City utility crews will be working throughout the night in an attempt to restore power to the regions affected by the blackout. The Mayor’s office is asking for the full cooperation of the citizens during this tragedy, Mayor Kingsbury is asking for all citizens to please remain in their homes and to avoid going out on the streets if it can be helped. Emergency crews will are still searching through the rumble for any survivors of this attack, emergency supply tents are being set up in the affected regions for citizens to receive; water, ration bars, soy milk, blankets, candles and batteries if they are needed as well as medical treatment. The Mayor is unsure of how long the affected regions will be without power, as the entirety of the Lower Settle Power Station has been destroyed in this attack.
He also warns that Deaths Hand agents have been spotted in the region and for the citizens to avoid contact, as these men are killers and will not hesitate to attack, kidnap or murder anyone they come into contact with. Seattle’s backup power generators are currently powering the essential locations in the affected areas, such as the Hospitals, Emergency Stations and the Prisons security, and hospitals.
Mayor Kingsbury has also issued a statement “Any citizen caught engaging in a criminal act during the blackout will be dealt with accordingly, any citizen that uses this blackout to riot or loot will be arrested and charged as a Deaths Hand Conspirator and face the death penalty.” The Mayor has faith in the citizens during this troubled time in Seattle as the citizens have been through worse and he has faith in his fellow man. Seattle Police Department will be doubling their presence in the affected regions, as a deterrent to criminal activity.
As well do the actions of the Deaths Hand the Mayor has suspended all incoming and outgoing commuter and commercial traffic and has set up check points throughout the cities major arteries to stop and search any suspicious vehicle. He fears the False Flag has allied itself with the Deaths Hand and will use this attack as precursor to another full blown assault of the city. He is as well requesting that if the citizens spot any suspicious activity please contact Police Precinct One asking for the Counter Terrorism Division at 1-800-555-STAR ext 354.
Again the Mayor and Police Commissioner are asking for the full cooperation of the citizens during this event and please be patient as the emergency crews work to restore power to the affected regions of Seattle. The Affected regions of Seattle are under an imposed curfew that goes in affect immediately the Curfew is from Dusk to Dawn. Thank you Citizens of Seattle, for your ongoing cooperation.
Their was an assault at club Penumbra this evening at approximately 2030 hours, runners from the Devil’s Rejects assaulted the club searching for the freelance runner Sparrow. According to eyewitnesses Sparrow was in the club searching for members of the Devil’s Rejects to settle an old score with the teams leaders Chemist and Hero. When Hero entered the club he found Sparrow assaulting Baby Girl of the Rejects and Angel was being held up by a crowd of drunken coeds, that thought the fight was staged and part of the nights entertainment. Hero began opening fire with an assault shotgun firing into the crowd to clear a path for Angel, who readied am assault riffle and began to open fire in Sparrows direction. There where additional unknown members of the Denver Guard who where in the crowd as well. They as well began firing at the Devil’s Rejects, the patrons where fleeing in fear as Devil’s Rejects Joker, Pedagogue, Diablo, Apothecary and Wolf blasted their way into the club. This once peaceful hotspot for the young college coeds turned into a full fledged war zone as the Rejects unleashed hell upon the Denver Guard soldiers and in Sparrows direction. According to one of the bartenders hiding in the back room, when Sparrow saw the Pedagogue she panicked, dropping her guard and was shot by Diablo. Sparrow rendered herself invisible and vanished.
When the Red Samurai security force arrived on scene, they began to engage the Devil’s Rejects till the Apothecary gave some sort of signal and the Rejects all affixed portable re-breathers on and the Apothecary Tossed a large glowing grenade. The club quickly began filling with a noxious blue gas and the Red Samurai began falling one by one, as their skin boiled. The bartender was able to survive only do to exhaust fans in the bathroom as the entire club filled with this noxious gas. She said; “It was the scariest thing she had ever seen, the Rejects moved like a well oiled machine. “They killed everyone without any second though. Once the gas was released she could here the security gargling like they were drowning. then everything went silent till Seattle Police arrived on scene.”
This bartender was lucky to survive as emergency crews arrived on scene and are going through the dead, as this young women who’s name is being withheld for her safety was the only survivor of anyone who was unable to escape the club during the fire fight. According to my sources inside Seattle Police Department so far the casualties are 54 citizens and security, 24 Red Samurai and 12 Denver Guard. This attack could have been far worse, as the club was at capacity and their were hundreds of patrons inside when the firing began. Seattle Police Department have ceased jurisdiction of the club from the Red Samurai and are currently investigating. Club Penumbra will remain closed through the investigation but hopes to reopen for the New Years Bash on the 31st. A spokesman from Seattle Police Department when asked about the investigation only replied with “No Comment”.
There was an attack early this morning at Seattle Mercy Hospital in the Lynnwood Section of Seattle, a group of unknown paramilitary soldiers assaulted the Hospital attacking the Paediatric, Emergency, Oncology and Psychiatric Ward. This attack was swift and caught the hospital security completely off guard, lucky for hospital personnel the runner known as the Apparition was in the area and decided to engage the assaulting forces till Seattle Police was able to respond. The first on scene was Detective Anthony DiCane and Detective Daniel Lionel, these heroic officers risked everything to engage the forces attacking the Paediatric Ward. Not waiting for back up to arrive these Detectives raced into the Ward and engaged the enemy even being out numbered, they managed to kill all the attackers. Detective Lionel was wounded during the exchange but managed to save the Assistant Director of Paediatric’s a Doctor Maria Mathews, who was being held hostage at gunpoint.
Also the runner Rex who was already at the hospital visiting a friend, helped in the engagement assaulting the forces attacking the Oncology Ward, Once Seattle Police Department arrived on scene they managed to succour the hospital and all suspects where killed either by security, runners or suicide. Seattle Police Department sealed the hospital down, though runners Rex and Apparition managed to slip past them. Detectives Harrison Rodgers, Sherman Willard, Russell Bookman and Warren Procter where placed in charge of the investigation. Captain Frank Quinn refused to speak about the case, and left the awaiting press with this quote: “No Comment, No Comment this is an ongoing investigation. Do all of us a favour you vultures Go The F**K Home and let us do our F**king job.” Then he stormed into the hospital.
Detectives Anthony DiCane and Daniel Lionel where not available for comment and when reporters arrived at Police Precinct One to get a quote from the two first responding officers they where met with a chilly reception from Detectives Kermit Spalding, and Jerry Stowell who abruptly escorted the press out of the building and threatened them with arrest if they remand on the grounds.
Rebuttal and Apology to Captain Benjamin Mathews, a previous reporter from the Seattle World News had misquoted the Captain when he was interviewed at the murder scene on Avenue D in Alphabet City. He never claimed the killings to be related to the serial killer known as Psycho, he only gave the standard quote of all police Captains of “No Comment” and “Please Citizens be patient as Seattle Police Department investigates the scene.”The offending reporter has been disciplined in house for his over zealous reporting, we at Seattle World News Officially Apologize to Captain Benjamin Mathews for any trouble this may have caused.
According to sources inside the Seattle Police Department, infamous runner Bilbo has been granted a position inside the Detective Bureau and was granted a pardon through former Mayor Robert Hills pardon program. Maximilian Yates aka Bilbo has been placed in the joint task force under the command of Captain Benjamin Mathews, until his scheduled academy training this spring. It seems the pardon program is still up and running as Bilbo was given the green light by the Commissioner Jeremy McNair personally and his papers signed off by the Deputy Mayor Marvin McCarthy. Bilbo is scheduled to attend the Police Academy with the next class this spring, he is being the green light to work as a sworn officer of the law prior to his academy training this is highly irregular, and has many concerned that his lack of experience and knowledge in police procedures will hinder the department.
Also sources from inside the Department have released the duty roster for the Special Task Force Division led by Captain Benjamin Mathews. We will release this list for the citizens here: Captain Benjamin Mathews, Lieutenant Clark Barnett, Sargent Herschel Grant, Sargent Bernard Beachworth, Sargent Sherman Willard, Sargent Harrison Rodgers, Sargent Jerry Stowell, Senior Detective First Grade Warren Procter, Senior Detective First Grade Elliot Ness, Senior Detective Second Grade Kermit Spalding, Junior Detective First Grade Anthony DiCane, Junior Detective Second Grade Daniel Lionel, Detective Rookie Maximilian Yates, Detective Rookie Farrus Forscythe (Farrus has also been recruited from the runner world and granted a pardon through the pardon program)
This division is made up of Detectives from all the major divisions within Seattle Police Department as has been given jurisdiction over the entire city as pilot program. This is division is a no nonsense division that contains a vast majority of Seattle Police Departments finest detectives, this division also has some of the departments most troubled members placed inside and under the command of a man that is the worst of the worst and should no longer be caring a badge. Lets just hope they are able to uphold the law and and not endanger any citizen with there twisted interpretation of the law. None of these members carry standard issue firearms, these men all wield the firearms of the runners, they have no regard for procedure and policy this is exactly what is meant by another brick in the wall. Citizens you have been warned, this division appears to be more a hit squad then a legitimate law enforcement squad, looks like another out stretching arm of the Mayor here.
WORLD NEWS: Confederate forces continue to assault the Federal District of Columbia, they have managed to take hold of a vast majority of the Capital as they made lightning strikes during the holiday season forgoing the Cease Fire. Claiming that events in Seattle by UCAS forces already breached the Cease Fire, the Confederates now control most of the Federal District of Columbia. They are poised and ready to strike the government sector any day now. General Townsend’s forces have been reinforced, by the South Carolina forces being led by General Cotton. The UCAS forces are as well facing down forces from General Jones of the North Carolina division, they have also unleashed armed members of the Klu Klutz Klan into the city to burn out the citizens and military. President Davis was quoted in saying “They will surrender or they will starve, I have the city surrounded and like a noose I am strangling the life out of the FDC.”
Tennessee has completely fallen to the Confederates after days of constant fighting and bombings into the UCAS controlled region. General Bird unleashed his elite strike force the Tennessee Elite into the UCAS boarders with one command “Burn them out!” It appears between the steady attacks and the UCAS having to pull forces out of Tennessee to defend the Federal District the remaining forces have surrendered to General Bird and have been taken into custody as prisoners of war. What fate beholds the soldiers captured by the confederates is unknown, but one can deem that it won’t be good knowing the tactics of General Bird and the Tennessee Elite. General Bird is currently waiting for a response from the UCAS, as he begins to reinforce the northern cities of Tennessee.
Oklahoma has also fallen to the Confederates do to continued strikes by General Shepherd forces and the Oklahoma Guard. The Confederates using guerilla warfare tactics managed to overtake multiple UCAS military bases and capture ranking officers, while also conquering multiple cities in the northern half of Oklahoma. President Edward Davis of the Confederate States of America has already given authorisation for the public executions of UCAS government officials and UCAS military personnel over the rank of O2. It seems this fate might also await the personnel of the UCAS in Tennessee, those scheduled for hanging, have been taken to a unknown location. General Shepherds forces are reinforcing the recently conquered cities and are prepared for any attempt by the UCAS to retake Oklahoma from Confederate Control.
The Battle in England against the Deaths Hand has taken a turn for the worse for the English forces as a band of General Hakett’s Panzer division has broken through the English defences and entered London City. Thus opening a door for the rest of his armour divisions to break through as the British forces scrambled to recover from they sudden bombardment from the Deaths Hands Mobile Battle Fortress. Also the Deaths Hand have unleashed a barrage of paratroopers into London from General Ackerman’s elite death squads. The British have turned to there allies in the Tir Na Nog for assistance from the consent blitzkriegs and bombings from the Deaths Hand. Elven Diplomat River Yelling stated “They will be unable to send any further assistance to the humans of England, as they themselves are dealing with extended attacks from the Human Resistance Movement and Deaths Hand.” The British military are concerned that if they don’t receive any aid soon their country will fall to the Deaths Hand, since the Deaths Hand Navy and the Pirate Clan the Crimson Bloods have been keeping any support from arriving by sea and the Deaths Hand Forces in Scotland and Whales have been keeping any air support from reaching England. With The Deaths Hand in control of the eastern countries of Europe, it appears they have officially taken control of those countries and no air support can reach England safely.
General Yale of the Deaths Hand has rendered Portugal inert and has begun rounding up the citizens to be prepared for the many camps that have been set up in the former country. he has as well removed the boarder and extended the boarders of Spain to encompass what was Portugal. General Yale has also ordered all of the countries history, works of art and anything that is part of their heritage to be destroyed and removed from the history books. General Yale has already taken full control of the Portuguese Navy and fishing vessels, he executed the loyalists, and emasculated and enslaved those that where willing to align with the Deaths Hand. He has been quoted in saying “Once this generation of Portuguese, have perished I will have successfully committed genocide of the Portuguese nationality.” ” Also those that live will be the last of their line, as all men have been castrated, all women sold into sexual slavery and sterilized and the children feed to the sharks.” A reporter disturbed by General Yale’s calm disposition to committing genocide asked him why Yale responded with a unsettling and frighting response with just two words “Why Not.” he then continued to sip his brandy and smoke his cigar as if nothing was the matter. It has taken General Yale only a decade to completely remove an entire nationality of people from the earth and he has issued a 100,000 credit bounty on any escaped Portuguese people. General Yale doesn’t seem concerned about any retaliation from the worlds court, as he says “The UN is meaningless now, they have no power. The Deaths Hand controls a vast majority of the free world and what they don’t is currently being conquered by our allies.” The reporter was then allowed to leave alive, as General Yale, just laughed at his apparent disgust with who casual General Yale was being speaking about committing genocide.
The Human Resistance Movement has been able to assault Russia with a bombardment directly into Moscow, they have unleashed a fire storm and are using the Russian’s own scorched earth policy against them. Under the command of Xavier Russia is feeling the pressure of an unyielding force that doesn’t seem to be hindered by the cold or the rough terrain. The Human Resistance Movement seems to be able to spring up throughout Russia’s major cities without any hindrance. These terrorists, as well seem to have multiple forces that remained as sleeper cells after Stalin’s death and have been recently reactivated by Xavier, according to Russian Czar Boris Pavlov “Russian forces where planing to assist the English though now with the Human Resistance Movement causing serious damage and causalities inside Mother Russia, we must focus on our one defence first and foremost.” Though Russia is still reinforcing the forces in the Baltic and preparing to enter the UCAS through Alaska, this might be a strategical nightmare for the bear. Since the HRM is inside there nation, and if they invade the UCAS they will have to deal with a multi-fronted war and history states this never ends well.
China is as well concerned about the blatant attack on Russia, they have sent aid to the Russians but they fear fully getting involved and weakening there own military with the Deaths Hand chomping at the bit to invade China. General Kringle is just waiting for the orders to invade China from India and General Field and General Appleton are as well poised and ready to invade China by coming through Russia. As they have been given the green light to push into Russia to aid their allies the Human Resistance Movement. China fears a three pronged attack from the masters of the Blitzkrieg, and with General Kringle’s army being much larger and better equipped and trained then the Chinese military they are resorting to recruiting the criminal syndicate to help defend their country, history and heritage from the crushing hand of the Deaths Hand.
Japan refuses to lend any aid to Russia or China, as they are still reeling from the previous Human Resistance Movement attacks and control of their nation. Japanese dignitaries know the the Human Resistance Movement has sleeper cells in the main land and doesn’t want to poke the wolf needless to say. North Korea has offered support to China, though South Korea threatens to invade the North in full military campaign if they get Korea on the Deaths Hands radar. Vietnam has pledged support to China against the Deaths Hand, though they fear an attack from the frightened governments of Laos, Cambodia, Burma and Thailand. Nepal that boarders India and China has already been conquered by the General Kringle and has been absorbed into India’s boarder just like Portugal has been with Spain.
Indonesia and the Philippines have as well sworn them self neutral and will not get involved in any of the attacks by the Deaths Hand or Human Resistance Movement. As these countries are already being watched by multiple Pirate Clans namely the Crimson Bloods and the Sea Wolves, as these two clans have taken hold of the many small islands around these countries as there port of calls. The governments of these nations, fear a full fledged assault from the pirates and their allies of the Deaths Hand and Human Resistance Movement if they get involved in the ongoing wars.
Australia, Tasmanian and New Zealand remain fully neutral and will not involve themselves with what’s going on. They have increased their military might on their homeland but have decided to just stay out of the engagement. The Australian government doesn’t normally concern themselves with the rest of the world, knowing that they are secluded and any advancing army must come through their waters fist and the Australian Navy is a true force to be reckoned with. And any force that make land, will have to deal with Australia herself. This country is home to many of the worlds fiercest paranormal creatures, magic tempests, wild magic and the worlds most venomous beings. So as the Aussies say down under “Bring It.”
South American forces have begun a bloody civil war against the likes of one of the fiercest dictators the world has seen. They have engaged the forces of General Graham Drexel aka Holocaust and his murderous enforcer Bertram Springfield aka Aries and their forces. These men have allied themselves with the Deaths Hand and are being reinforced by the Deaths Hand. The alliance was cemented by Deaths Hand agent the Negotiator before his death in the Battle of Fort Lewis. Holocaust has issued a terrifying order of ethnic cleansing for the people of South America and has asked the Deaths Hand to provide camps for him in his conquest. Since General Drexel has already conquered a vast majority of South America and he is now moving his forces further north in South America, with Central America in his sights and eventually Aztlan. Those targeted countries of Venezuela and Panama being in his sight they have decided to strike first at his forces in Columbia and Brazil, he is as well forcing his way south using the additional support from the Deaths Hand to fully conquer Chile and Argentina. These southern countries have been nearly dominated by General Drexel prior to his sudden campaign against them. If General Drexel can breach Panama and then conquer the remaining nations of Central America all will be lost for Aztlan as they will be fighting a two fronted war against the Confederates to the north and Holocaust to the south. Do to General Drexel planning to eventually invade Aztlan and begin his genocidal campaign there the Confederate navy that controls the Panama Canal has granted General Drexel the authorisation to use the canal under the pretence that he stops his conquest at the original Mexican boarder. General Drexel has agreed to only concur Aztlan with Confederate aid and he will not move any further north, as he doesn’t want to anger President Davis or General Kingsbury with a invasion into United States.
The rioting that erupted in the various American cities earlier this month after the Battle of Seattle has been quashed by UCAS forces and the cities have once again fallen back in line. All but New York City, that continues to riot and cause a multitude of property destruction and the senseless killings of many of its citizens and elected officials. New York is being equipped and reinforced by the Freedom Patriots from Boston and the cities water ways are being cut off by a large portion of the Admirals fleet. The Freedom Patriots have sent Omega, Baron, Redrum and Ajax into Manhattan to do what those bastards do best. Brooklynn and the Bronx have already fully fallen to the Patriots and so has Long Island. Fighting continues in Queens, Manhattan and Staten Island. The Patriots are using the cities colour coding against them and have sealed off the bridges and tunnels essentially quarantining the city from any reinforcements from the UCAS and all the while smuggling in troops and supplies through the shores of Long Island, Brooklynn and the Bronx. The Mayor of Queens Mr. Gregory Finch has stated “If something is not done soon, Queens will officially run out of food and clean water for it’s citizens and be forced to surrender to the Patriots.” He doesn’t want to wave the white flag, but he would rather be executed by the Patriots then watch his citizens die of dehydration. Staten Island is as well feeling similar pressure from the Patriots forces there, with all shipments being cut off by Patriot forces and redirected to there controlled regions it won’t be long before Staten Island is forced to surrender as well. Patriot commander Salem issued a statement “We do not wish any harm to come to the citizens of Queens, and Staten Island. Any Citizen wishing to defect to the Patriots can receive aid from the many aid stations available in Brooklynn, Bronx or Long Island. Any citizen wishing to fight against the tyranny of the False Flag is welcome to join us in our defence of the city.” he also stated “Any citizen needing emergency aid can seek out any of the Patriots field camps and receive medical treatment. Though be prepared to by thoroughly screened by security before entering, we are fighting a war after all.” The Patriots are fighting hard to bring down Manhattan and are hell bent on fully capturing all of New York City.
Denver has all been quelled, the Denver Guard has systematically taken down the rioters and brought an end to all Patriot and Confederate forces that have entered the city. The Denver military has sealed off the city and has as well re taken the underbelly of Denver away from the Tunnel Rats and forced them deeper into Denver’s Sewer system and out of the tunnels. While Detroit has officially been declared a Demilitarized Zone and sealed off as the UCAS deems it to be uninhabitable by civilised society. President Jackson has signed the official documentation authorizing Detroit to be struck with multiple low yield nuclear warheads, the date of the strike is unknown. President Jackson when interviewed about the cleansing of Detroit only replied with “Good Riddance, and it’s been a long time coming.”
