The crowd of angry protesters, led by Luc’s father Jean Paul (Julian D. Christopher, HUMAN TARGET), becomes a full-fledged riot under the sway of violent Black Bloc Anarchists targeting the police. During the melee, Greeley is abducted and Team One must race to rescue him from a vengeful and unexpected assailant.
