Mark placed his hand on Don's shoulder "I'm sorry. I'm really sorry. There was no way we could have known this would happen."
"The point is, I should have. For the sake of a story I put her life at risk. I just ignored the consequences. Now she's gone, forever. I swear Mark; I never imagined this could happen ... I swear."
"It wasn't your fault."
Don looked up, first gazing down at the parking lot, then facing Mark. "They can't get away with this. We can't let them. We have to do something, now."
"We will. I promise you, they won't get away with it, but we have to be smart about what we do. They've got too much political and financial power. Now that they have their fingers in the newspaper, they will try to stop the story from being released. We have to get credible evidence so that if they do step in, we're ready to go to the Feds.
I have a friend who works for the FBI in DC. Once we get the photos developed, we'll write up what we know, and attempt to get it published locally. If we're forced to go elsewhere, I'll take it to him, but we need to get Digger involved, give him a copy of everything we have. He's the only one in the local government we can trust anymore. He can still help us, as long as he understands his chain of command has been compromised, he can be our eyes within the PD. Once we show him the photos of the commissioner taking a payoff, and these pictures of them tossing Sally's body into the vehicle, he'll have to believe us. He'll just have to."
