Story intro

Brett Ridgeman and Anthony Lurasetti are a pair of police officers working the urban beat in the city of Bulwark. During a drug bust, the older, more volatile Ridgeman becomes unnecessarily rough with a suspect, using his foot to jam the man's face into a fire escape. They also pour cold water on and mock the suspect's partially-deaf girlfriend. The former act is caught on video, and the two men are called before their superior, Lt. Calvert. Although Ridgeman asks that Lurasetti be spared from any sort of reprisal, Calvert is forced to suspend both men without pay in order to appease the media. With Ridgeman's wife unable to work due to illness and Lurasetti preparing to propose to his fiancee, the men resolve to use the criminal connections they have developed through their time in law enforcement to make cash that will sustain them until their suspensions are lifted. Through Friedrich, a wealthy businessman and criminal associate who owes him a favor, Ridgeman gets a lead on a score from Lorentz Vogelmann. Meanwhile, recently released ex-con Henry Johns, hoping to finance better opportunities for his drug-addicted, prostitute mother and his bright but wheelchair-bound little brother, joins up with his childhood friend Biscuit for a mysterious but lucrative job. Their employer turns out to be Vogelmann, who uses them as getaway drivers and lookouts for a bank robbery. Ridgeman and Lurasetti tail Vogelmann's crew, quickly identifying the telltale signs of a bank robbery; though Lurasetti considers calling the robbery in, Ridgeman convinces him to allow them to carry out the job before robbing them.
