We saw MedicatedSeaweed post an open letter to The Revolution where The Revolution opened fire and wiped out The Invisibles, which was reported by our very own Strikeback, and MedicatedSeaweed stated they were unsure as to why they were targeted in this slaughter however were not going to take being attacked so lightly and returned fire, wiping The Revolution from the stats. The Invisibles claimed 720,069 bullets were shot and 1,300 gold used in retaliation.
I managed to track MedicatedSeaweed down to find out more.
"We've heard speculation, none of it convincing. That it was for Illinois Bullet Factory, which doesn't wash with me because the holder of the factory was amongst the last to die, not the first as you would expect in that situation. We've also heard a rumour it was because they feared a gang wanted to upgrade into a crew spot and they were worried they would be the target. That doesn't fully convince me either. We've also heard it was because they were bored, which I could believe."
So The Invisibles believe they were only targeted out of boredom. We did try to find someone from The Revolution to hear their side but no one was available to speak to. We asked if they feel they will retaliate in relation to their retaliation or if their war was for now over.
"As far as we're concerned it's over. They acted, we reacted. We're willing to drop it and go back to our partying but if they feel the need to respond then that'd be an act of war to which we would retaliate.
Seems like The Invisibles consider this mini war over, but will retaliate if they are attacked again. Only time will tell if The Revolution try their luck again.
Grabbing my notes and bag I headed back to the office. I sat at my desk, spinning my pen between my fingers and tapping on the desk trying to think how I was going to get both sides of the story. Every avenue I went down I came to a dead end. I found myself debating whether to give up on this article or not when all of a sudden I heard something slide through under the door.
I got up and ran to open the door, looked around and couldn't see anyone. The street was dark with just areas lit up by the street line shining on the wet cobble stones, and a light mist in the air.
I slammed the door shut and picked up folded piece of paper which read 'If you want to talk meet me in 1 hour, come alone, and I must remain anonymous' and it was signed 'The boss of TR' with an address written on the back of the note.
With excitement I rushed back to my desk, started writing out a list of questions, and then it occurred to me, could this be a setup? Was I digging too deep and not aware of what I was getting myself in to? I quickly headed to my Cadillac V16 armored limousine, loaded my BAR M1918 in to the trunk, threw in a couple of crates of ammo and strapped on my Premier tailored body armor just for extra protection. I sat in the car and waited nervously for a good 40 minutes before I decided to make the 10 minute drive to the address which was written on the back of the note.
I pulled up next to a bust street lamp, surely I didn't want to be parking here, I can't be seen if anything happens, but then again, maybe not being seen was a good idea. I didn't want to draw attention from other crews.
As I looked around I saw a figure in the distance. I felt safe knowing I still had my Colt M1903 concealed from earlier should I need to get back to the car, I could provide my own cover fire. I approached the figure and instantly heard the sound of a gun being loaded. I froze. I took a couple of steps back and explained I got the note and was here to ask a few questions. I didn't get a reply though. I could see the metal of his firearm catching a nearby street light and it was by his side so I knew it wasn't being pointed at me. I asked if he was the Boss of The Revolution. Again I didn't get a response. I explained that I was under the impression from what I have heard that the crew in The Revolution spot wasn't actually The Revolution at all, and they were posing as them. I asked if this was true. Still no response.
I thought for a few minutes, and I was considering trying to provoke an answer out of him but how far could I push it? I wasn't even sure of the firearm he had, or whether anyone else was with him, or if I could make it back to my car in time without being shot. I was ready to walk away, and suddenly noticed a crew colour marking, but not the colour of The Revolution. Was he telling me the truth as to who he was? Was he in another crew trying to stir trouble? or was he in another crew to inside them? I continued to observe the figure for another clue when suddenly he moved slightly, causing the light to catch the side of your firearm again, with something engraved. I recognised the word, so asked if the engraving was his name. I could just make out the nod from the outline of his head.
I stepped back, not out of fear, but as I was getting nowhere. Before I left I explained that he would remain anonymous should he wish to talk and he knows where to find me, and slowly headed back to my car. I turned around and he was gone. I was confused, why did he want to talk if he had nothing to talk about? What did he expect to gain?
I drove back to the office with various questions running through my head.
I approached the office and pushed open the door in temper. Threw my pad and pen down and started to draft a flyer, 'IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION REGARDING THE REVOLUTION AND THE INVISIBLES SHOOTING WHICH TOOK PLACE OVER A WEEK AGO PLEASE CONTACT ME. YOU WILL REMAIN ANONYMOUS. I'M LOOKING FOR A MEMBER OR THE CREW BOSS THAT OCCUPIED THE REVOLUTION DURING THE TIME OF THE SHOOTING. I HAVE INFORMATION YOU WERE NOT ACTUALLY THE REVOLUTION, JUST POSING AS THEM, THEREFORE I WOULD LIKE TO THE BOTTOM OF IT. NO TIME WASTERS. Anonymity'
