On another raid with Brandt, Preston falls further into knowing the realm of emotion, lingering on a stash of EC-10 contraband.
But the descent goes deeper. The very next raid is on a dog pound in the Nether, and Preston chooses to save one of the puppies that runs into his arms.
Preston first decides to release the puppy back into the Nether, but is moved to keep it. He is confronted by a team of sweepers and their Captain (Danny Lee Clark, “Nitro” of American Gladiators) and slays them all when they discover the dog and attempt to arrest him as a sense offender.
