Misty Knight wakes Sam to show him the
news on television: how Rage was arrested by the Americops and
accused of robbing a pawn shop. Suiting up Sam Cap goes to the police
station where he talks to Elvin (Rage) and learns his side of the
incident. Cap suggests asking Peter Parker for bail money then
engaging Matt Murdock or Jennifer Walters as defense—but Elvin
refuses. He doesn't want a high profile rescue, he wants the plight
of the black man in America made public, via a major trial; that will
be his way of fighting for justice....
Sam goes home and locates the
surveillance footage from the birds showing the pawn shop incident.
The footage supports his version of the events. Cap talks to his team
about what to do: Misty, D-Man, and Falcon say he must make the film
public. When Sam hesitates, Joaquin gets mad and walks out. Cap talks
to a representative of the Mayor who tells him the footage will tear
the county apart. Sam's minister brother expresses his faith in Sam
and prays for him. Sam goes to see Steve Rogers for his guidance;
Steve tells him to trust his instincts....
That night, Sam hits send and the
inflammatory film goes out over the internet....
