A little something I worked on to make a movie which some friends.
(It’s been 2 years since the police force implemented the S.U.R.F. Special Unarmed Reasoning Force. Since the cases of the shooting unarmed civilians, police units train individuals in close combat, disabling defenders without the use of guns. Yeah…… That was S.U.R.F “Be Effective Effectively.” The motto of S.U.R.F. Funny how things change.)
Scene 1
(Enter David Smith, Enter Victor Trent)

David: Victor I see you’re new to this as well I so let’s get through this together. Ya Know.
Victor: (Rummages through some papers) Yeah I know what you mean. My first day at the job. Why they put a newbie with a newbie beyond me.
David: Must be because we excel in our classes. What did you get on the P.T?
Victor: 98%
David: Impressive. 94% for me.
Victor: Well maybe that is it.
David: Well guess we will see how it goes, ya know.
(Enter Janice)
Janice: David, Victor…..Your first assignment.
David: I wanted see what this. (He takes the paper.) A bounty?
Victor: I expected just a routine walk around.
David: Exciting… Well let get this done.
Janice: Bounties usually require a lot of force but this guy prefers a more physical approach. My boss says use you two to bring him in. Plain and simple.
David: What’s his name (Victor searches through the papers.)
Victor: Its says here Travis Jenkins 6’1 220. African American Male.

David: Well then walk faster. Ya Know
Victor: Rushing is bad for you. (He grabs his coat.) Alright Janice we are leaving. (David rushes and he accidentally bumps her and her papers fall out. Victor rolls his eyes and walks out.)
David: I’m sorry. (He bends down and picks up one. He notices a picture hanging out.) Who is this? It says Rogue Bounty. (He hands her the papers.)
Janice: No need to worry about him. Focus on your assignment. (He shrugs his shoulders and leaves. He meets Victor outside.)
David: No weapons?
Victor: Yeah, Unarmed combat.
David: Man what if I get shot at.
Victor: Well I don’t know…Duck. I’m sure you knew what was going on when you join this division.
David: Yea, but I just wanted the training.
Victor: So you wanted training?
David: Well I grew up on what I like to call tough love. Ya Know. (Victor chuckles)
Victor: Tough love.
David: Something like that. Plus I love the rush I get when I fight I figure this is easy way to immerse myself in it.
Victor: That’s pretty crazy.
David: Yea I guess but that’s just me. Ya Know. I am pretty….Well I was pretty undisciplined.
Victor: So you’re good now.
David: Something like that, we should spar one day. It will be fun. Ya Know

????: My own justice.
Lt. Davis: Interesting. Stand up. (He stands) Can you disarm me? (He pulls out his nightstick.) Don’t be intimated by weapons. They are no more then an extension of a person’s body. (He jumps forward and Lt. Davis knocks him down.) You are not thinking. (He picks him up) Here take it try to hit me. (He hands “?” the weapon) Now come at me. (He tries to, Lt. Davis unarms him.)

Lt. Davis: This course will teach you otherwise.
????: What I know is justice. (Little clips of him getting beat up.)
Lt. Davis: Your justice is blind. Open your eyes.
????:My eyes where open from the start. (He stands in his fighting stance.)
Lt. Davis: Why do you want to fight so passionately?

Lt. Davis: You say justice but all I hear is revenge, revenge for what?
