Almost simultaneously% each guardGs cell phone rang. Each listened to electronic%
synthesi?ed% disguised voices on the other end. #ear% panic% then terror-filled hopelessness
$ashed over them. A large @! van cruised alongside% the panel door open. A man $earing a
Barack ;bama mask and body armor held up a poster of Baines seven year-old daughter% her
innocent face smiling% front teeth missing. Then% the man produced a poster of 7im ReeferGs
mother sitting in the driverGs seat of her 5onda Civic% and finally one of -arsonGs thirteen year-
old daughter outside her >unior high school% talking $ith a friend. Baines and Reefer exchanged
panic-stricken glances.
The first voices on the phone had been those of Baines and -arsonGs $ives and ReeferGs
mother% each screaming in excruciating pain from gunshot $ounds to a foot. They $ere bleeding%
and a man held a gun to a foot of each guardGs child and to ReeferGs motherGs other foot. 4t $as
bedlam in all three houses. The voices $ere hysterical.
