Zap

The morning started off bad for Richard "Ice" Brown and the shame of it was, he didn't know it..He was still asleep with some busty beauty in his tony downtown loft.
Armed with Federal warrants, DEA Regional Special Agent in charge ,Carol Redding led the DEA to a ship in a marina we identified .....

They arrested 22 people and confiscated enough uncut Heroin and Cocaine to juice the entire tri state area for months....


Duke, Angie and plain clothes cops from Narcotics, Vice and the tactical squad..
Stopped Three vans, all owned by Richard "Ice" Brown..

They arrested six men and confiscated Heroin and Cocaine and other opiates headed for his storehouse in the country...
In the country....Sirena and Hop, Plain clothes officers from Vice and Narcotics, aided by Sharon and the FBI raided the house right outside Philadelphia..


They were so surprised when law enforcement came upon the before daybreak...


Three people were arrested  and enough street ready Heroin,Opiates and Cocaine was seized to juice Philadelphia, New Jersey and Deleware for months on end...

So before he woke up...Richard "Ice" Brown's back was broken......He had no product to sell....

At a house in West Philadelpha..




Sissy, Carlotta, Tyriq and Jimmy and several tactical squad officers arrested 39 leading members of Drug Crews coming to make an early morning purchase...
They impounded the last of  his street ready Heroin,Cocaine and Opiates....

He had no one to warn him or give him information, since we had arrested his two moles ,one from our office and one from the DEA office...

He might not even know his Lieutenant,Caesar Nichols was killed last night in an ill advised shootout with us...

By the time he awoke ,if he turned on the morning news he was hearing that the Feds and Philly coppers had impounded his ship, and it's product, made several arrests, raided his farmhouse and the house in West Philly, made more arrests and taken what was left of his stash...

We basically had put him out of business...In one morning.  He never knew he was our target...He was targeting one of us and we were targeting him!

II-
Captain Cantrell drove up to Headquarters....He was supposed to address this Month's COMSTAT meeting..He hated having to attend these meetings...He had a lot of work to do..
He was wearing Kevlar and a trauma plate under his well tailored suit...He was carrying a Kevlar umbrella...

 Tyriq, Jimmy, Carlotta, Sirena ,Hop, Angie and some police sharpshooters sat on an adjoining roof.

"I got a good scope on him."said Tyriq.
''Yeah, me too..." said Jimmy.
Carlotta had her sharpshooter rifle and was honed in on the roof across from them, waiting on a sign..
''Angie, We didn't find any sign of Weasel in the bar when we picked up Chino.."said Sirena..
''We went to his condo...No sign of him there either ...He may have skipped town.."said Hop.
"Or he's dead!!!! If I was made, then it was known he was talking to me."said Angie.
They were keeping close radio contact with Sissy and Duke on the ground..


Sissy and Duke on the ground..

I was there too..On the ground and in the crowd with binoculars...

"Sissy...our boy is on the roof...I caught a glimpse of him.."I said through a radio...

"Chica and the guys have him....I told them if they get a good shot to take it...but I've changed my plans.....Come on Duke...let's take him..It's too dangerous.."said Sissy, who entered the side of the building with Duke following behind..

Duke, took the safety off of his glock!
O the rooftop...Erik  Sandlov...got his sniper rifle ready.....The bullets were laced with Cyanide...He was a Blond haired man with dark sunglasses ,Black Shirt, Black slacks, Black sandles..
He was wearing Latex Gloves and his sniper rifle's serial number had been ground off..It had been bleached down so that there would be no prints or DNA and he had a quick escape route planned...

He was about to aim, when Sissy and Duke entered the roof...His military training prepared him...He heard them and produced a Sig Sauer...He fired three times at Duke, who ducked and dove to the ground..Duke returned his fire and missed...

 But Sissy's aim was deadly...She hit him three times in the chest...One right over his heart...His sunglassess flew off..and his sniper rifle and stand fell over the side into the street... He stumbled..

"Awwwwwwwwwwwww lawddddddddddddd...I don't believe it...I've been shot.." he moaned..

He fired three times into the air and then pitched forward and fell into the street....
Duke looked at Sissy...

"You alright Siss?" he asked..

"Never better " she said..and smiled that sexy grin of hers..
The Body of hitman, Erik Sandlov was put in a body bag and carted off...The second out of town killer to die here in as many weeks..
"Wow, remind me to never get you mad at me.." joked Hazel...

"You're like a sister to me...I could never harm you...None of you guys..." said Sissy.

III-


By now Richard "Ice" Brown had heard all of the news and he was sick.....His Ship,His farmhouse ,His Vans and his drop site in West Philly had all been raided by the Cops and the feds....Those two moles Weasel had placed at Police Headquarters and DEA headquarters weren't worth a damn...They hadn't given him a heads up and they themselves were now in custody...

He shook his head at how incompetent the people who worked for him turned out to be...In one night he had been put out of business..  He even found out that his Lieutenant, Caesar Nichols was killed in some kind of shootout with police the night before and to make matters worse...The man they hired to kill Ed Cantrell was himself killed by the cops.

He was certain they had nothing that would tie him to any of this...He stopped by his tony real estate office..Went in the safe and took some money out, stuffed it in a gym bag and grabbed two waiting passports...This was his exit plan if something like this were to happen...

He took the Elevator to the street and exited quietly from the back....

He saw Sissy ,Carlotta ,Jimmy and Tyriq standing there with five uniformed officers..

"Ice Brown....At last we meet" said Sissy, smiling..
"Love that suit..." said Carlotta..
"You know of course it's time to go to jail, don'tca?" said Tyriq..
''Damn...I wish I'd said that.."laughed Jimmy..


Ice Brown said nothing...He turned and ran for all he was worth down the alley....

"Suck it up Cupcake...We got you..." said Hop..
"Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide." said Sirena..
"It's been a longggggggggggg time comin Ice.."said Duke..
 "Well,I'm all out of cool quips..."said Angie who pulled out some handcuffs...

He saw Hop, Sirena, Duke and Angie and five more uniformed officers staring at him.... before he could turn to run in a different direction...He saw me , Sharon, a few FBI agents and Captain Edward Cantrell..

 ''End of the line ICE...You're going to the cooler.." I said..
 "Ouu,I wanted to say that..." said Sharon...
Ed Cantrell stared daggers at him......Then approached him...Through him up against the wall and read him his rights...

"I can't believe I've arrested three generations of you Browns...You'd think one of you'd learn.." he said softly...

Richard "Ice" Brown normally cool and calm lost it then....

"DAMN YOU ED CANTRELL...DAMN YOU.......YOU BETTER HOPE I  DON'T WALK ON THESE CHARGES...YOU BETTER HOPE I NEVER GET OUT OF JAIL....GOTDAMNIT...LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDERS...LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDERS CANTRELL AND WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT....ZAP!  ZAP!  WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT...ZAPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!' HE SCREAMED...

''Duke, Rico....get this dreck out of my face..."said Ed Cantrell...

''With Pleasure Cap." said Duke..
"Let's Go Laughin Boy."said Tyriq...

Richard "Ice" Brown was not cool now..He stomped his foot and kicked like a baby...and continued to scream at Ed Cantrell..

"LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDERS...LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDERS CANTRELL AND WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT....ZAP!  ZAP!  WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT ...ZAP!"

"I WILL HIRE ANOTHER HITMAN, I SWEAR....I SWEAR TO HEAVEN AND HELL... LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDERS...LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDERS CANTRELL AND WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT....ZAP!  ZAP!  WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT ...ZAP!"he screamed as they walked him out to the paddy wagon and a small crowd gathered....

He was still screaming to the top of his lungs as the police car drove away...

"I WILL HIRE ANOTHER HITMAN, I SWEAR!!....I SWEAR TO HEAVEN AND HELL... LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDERS...LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDERS CANTRELL AND WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT....ZAP!  ZAP!  WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT ...ZAP!"he screamed and kicked...

"I'd say the young man has a unique way of expressing himself.."said Ed Cantrell...

We all busted out laughing...

End of another long case....

EPILOUGE-
Richard "Ice" Brown was convicted in Federal Court of numerous R.I.C.O. counts and sentenced to 99 years... He was convicted in State court of two counts of conspiracy to commit murder...and sentenced to 25 years....To be served if he was ever paroled from his Federal Sentence..

Though he never testified...The words on tape of his own Lieutenant, Kenny "Weasel" Harris helped to convict him....

We found the nearly mummified body of Kenny "Weasel ''Harris, sitting in his BMW with his name monogrammed on the side..

He had been shot twice in the head.... By the time we found him he had been dead nearly a month...The car was parked in the garage of an abandoned warehouse ,blocks from his condo....

Hazel watched as his body was carted out in a body bag on a stretcher...

"Ange...I'm guessing he died the same night you last saw him....The night you guys shot Caesar Nichols..."said Hazel..

''Wow" was all Angie would say....

Ballistics would later be matched to the Sig Sauer, Erik Sandlov had been carrying... Caesar Nichols had probably instructed him earlier to end Weasel's life....Ironically, Weasel's voice from beyond the grave got him revenge....It put his boss behind bars for life....

Ice Brown is on ICE at a Federal Facility in California..

At the end of the case...We all met back up at ''Copland" where  Sissy's Husband Eddie C. , Duke and Carlotta cooked a pot of Baked Beans ,specially seasoned..

 ''We are almost ready folks..Grab those beers..." said Eddie C.
 "Yeah man...I taught Top how to season this.."said Duke with a laugh...
''Some of it you did...My mami taught me a lot about seasoning.." she said..

They fixed cornbread too...Captain Cantrell was ecstatic..

''Sissy you got a fine bunch here."he said.."Lawdddd let me get at that cornbread..."he said,laughing..

Carol Redding smiled..

"I concur..." she said..

''They make my life worth living " said Sissy surveying the room..


Sharon and Hop kissing in a corner like two teenagers...


Angie, Hazel and Sirena, laughing and joking and drinking beers...while setting a place for us all to eat inside tonight...It was raining outside...


Jimmy and Hop laughing and talking about the case....They kept saying "ZAP" and breaking out in guffaws...

Carlotta and Sharon laughing like the old friends they had always been ...

and me , Duke,Tyriq and Eddie C. drinking beers and kicking back..





The light rain turned into torrential rain and then a thunderstorm...
It didn't matter...We were all safe in the comfort of friendship and good food and good brew...
