Panther's friends didn't demand him to put his life in harm's way. They wanted him rich and famous. This joker's talk had him laughing.
"You should find another home before this one is burnt down with you in it," Panther said. He knew to be careful throwing stuff up in the DA’s face. He fronted himself as an Untouchable. Yet he never felt any urgency to get this house torn down, the reporters and cameras weren't around to show boat. "She wants me to kill Lando and his family."
"Arcadio will take complete power," DA said with his eyes jumping. He adjusted his shorts and stuffed his shirt in them, preparing for a camera opportunity. "She believes Lando's ambition is to snitch. The family wall crumbles. Are you doing the hit today?"
"Working with useless Arcadio, it'll take about mid-week," Panther said, rubbing his hands together. "Aren't you cold with that on?"
DA Vaal cleared his throat picking up his overcoat from the floor. "I'm glad you see things my way, murdering them will make Detroit a better place." He patted Panther's back. "I have surveillance lost on Lando's family."
DA Vaal doesn't care he kills, Panther thought. And he promises a jail free card. Should've brought a tape recorder.
"Where is it to go down, in Detroit or Livonia?"
Panther's eyes followed DA Vaal pacing back and forth. "I can easily kill them anywhere. Then I tell Nachine, Arcadio did it. So you won't have to wait."
"I want you to hurry up and get enough evidence on the family so they can do jail time. I'm not ordering you to kill for me to drop your charges. Our country will be a safer place. And-"
There DA Vaal started, giving his political speech. He heard it the day he had gotten escort to be booked. DA Vaal talked like an insurance salesman. He convinced him jail would kill him faster than the street. Then he wrapped his arm around him like his son he saved from death. No lie, the DA was glad what he decided.
"You hear me," DA peered out a crack between the boards nailed to the window frame. "I want you to have Arcadio to kill them. It would allow him to show his power to his grandmother and the people on the street would hate him for killing the kind brother."
