General Overview

Posted: August 18, 2013 by Hannibal Smith in Uncategorized

Last night: We reviewed the footage from our security cameras. The camera with the view of the power source showed a man in black appear from nowhere and knock me out, then shut down all the power. He was not seen on any of the other cameras, and once the power was out he disappeared as quickly as he had appeared. We then returned to the park, and examination of the site revealed an in-ground hatch which could be trap door, but it was tightly shut. Since it was late, we went back to the hotel and took turns keeping watch on the security cameras.

Today: Went to the park early before it opened to try and get into the hatch. It was bolted from the inside with no ways to unlatch it from above. We needed tools to cut it apart and pry it open, but the equipment shed had been raided again, and we didn’t have the right tools. So Face scammed a Ductile Iron Safety Blade and several hard hats with headlamps. Then B.A. cut through the hatch, and Murdock and I went down wearing the headlamps and carrying guns, while Face and B.A. watched above ground and communicated with the walkie-talkies.

The hatch led to an underground concrete tunnel. We walked through it for a long time, and found it branched off and led to several more overhead hatches, some under the park, and some much farther away. They each were able to be closed and bolted from the inside with a metal bar. Possibly they were constructed during the Cold War era when the fear of nuclear attack was a threat. When we got to the end of the tunnel, there was a hatch there, and when we went up through it, we found ourselves on the sidewalk of a town, right in front of the bank.

Obviously, the first thing we thought of was bank robbery. If someone wanted to make a speedy getaway, all they would have to do would be to run out of the bank, go down the hatch, then shut and lock it from the inside. Even if the police arrived, it would take them too long to open the hatch by force, and by that time the robber would have made his escape. The attacks on Thurmond’s amusement park have begun to make sense; his end of the tunnel is far enough away from the bank that it wouldn’t be the first place police would look. The park is also located next to the Mississippi river, which would allow the robber to have a boat ready when he came through the tunnel, and he could escape. By sabotaging the park, the saboteur is hoping to get it shut down so that the property will remain abandoned long enough for him to commit the robbery and escape.

Now we believe we have a reason, but we don’t yet have a suspect. The plan is to lure the saboteur out to where we can catch him and get him arrested. If we can find a way to nail him with the charge of attempted robbery as well, the plan will truly come together.

We have voice identification and transcription software, and I’ll bet Murdock knows how to program it to publish in posts. Since it’s the only way to get you out of our hair, I guess we’ll do it.

I’m going to lay it out for you

Your definition of “properly” must be different than most people’s — last time you “documented a case,” you highlighted all the drama (or melodrama) and failed to mention any of the important steps in the plan and its execution. Now, if you want to comment on this case, kid, you’re going to have to give us a say in what gets posted. You can’t blackmail us this time around, so you’re going to operate by our rules. Got it?

We were working. In fact, we were so busy doing our jobs that we didn’t have time to write about doing our jobs.

The Plan

Posted: August 15, 2013 by Hannibal Smith in Uncategorized

Thurmond checks out, and has now officially hired the A-Team. Our plan is as follows: up the security throughout the amusement park, fix the damaged machinery, and find out who the saboteur is. Tomorrow we’ll get checked in at the hotel near the park and base out of there, since we may be doing constant surveillance. Before we leave, B.A., get your tools and the cameras, walkie-talkies, computer, and other equipment packed and loaded into the van. Face, start researching all of Thurmond’s employees. This could be an inside job. And Murdock, make sure our software is operational, and get some maps or blueprints of the park. The saboteur won’t be able to hide if we know all the hiding spots. And be ready bright and early tomorrow morning!
