The scene opens in Alabama. According to new evidence, teenagers with automatic weapons are terrifying students at the Hastings based Cyrus Garza School. Recently one armed teenager has killed an innocent bystander named Kelvin Jones, while being in the attempt of open firing at a couple. Back in D.C., referring to Ben Kershaw’s so called suicide, Eddie asks Lucinda if she killed him. She replies in a way suggesting she thinks it’s a ridiculous question. Meanwhile, Garza decides to visit the school. As soon as he announces that, a Detective Farrow is at the doorstep and asks with Kershaw’s photo if this guy had ransacked Garza’s office.
Farrow leaves, and Garza tells Lucinda that Kershaw started showing up almost the same time when Lucinda began working for him. Kershaw not only ransacked his office, but also attacked Mereta and followed Garza for his whereabouts. Later, Eddie tries to get information out from Lucinda, especially about the dead girl, whose identity Lucinda might have stolen. At Hastings, Garza takes a tour around the school with the principal, and finds out that Kelvin was one of the best students. Not just that, but he also started a school government, newspaper and a tutoring program that he supervised. Principal Menzies reveals to Garza that her requests for protective systems such as metal and heat detectors got no response from the district. Moreover, when Garza meets Kelvin’s parents at their house, they express their frustration as well. They had requested the district to allow Kelvin and Kara, his sister, to go to a different school – the Centennial Academy – on two occasions. However, they got no response either. Randall, their father, claims that all the white kids’ requests have been processed, but not theirs...
