SLA Industries loves its killers. Despite the admiration bordering on hero worship that is heaped upon even – and perhaps particularly – the most savage and brutal of murderers as long as they possess some sort of legitimation be it in the form of an SCL card, a Nitro-Legion uniform or a Circuit amnesty, the powers that be have little genuine interest in letting psychologically unstable, violently predisposed persons with the training, equipment and often enough the license to kill roam the streets of Mort unchecked. This creates a dilemma pitting the disinhibition thought necessary for completing missions and the media’s legitimate interest in ratings against concerns about the security and integrity of infrastructure, employees and civilians.
