A JACK ACTION NEWS! INVESTIGATION:

WARDEN CORRUPT!

Orders Uzi from Cargo - QM Approved!

Cargo Tech Strung up After He Sought to Expose Scam!

 

"I bought a machine pistol without any ammunition to see if it would fit in my holster," Warden Lakeisha Allard stated unconvincingly as one of many excuses.

 

16:06 - NSS AURORA - J. Edwardson

 

Earlier today, a source inside security tipped me off about an illicit order made by Warden Lakeisha Allard.  "Warden was looking to buy serious heat earlier.  Full autos... Saturday night special shit," they told me.  They had no idea why the Warden would have a need for this item.  As a non-patrolling officer, tasked with the efficient functioning of the brig and armory, she had any number of non-lethal and, should the situation require of it, lethal, weaponry to do her job.

 

Instead, she made a purchase from Cargo.  A mini-Uzi with a total cost of more than 2000 credits!  The purchase order has been attached to this message as proof of the Warden's illicit act.  All purchase orders existing at the time of the weapon's recovery were reviewed.  Please note that Warden Allard's order was made on Code GreenLethals may not be possessed by Security, much less used.

 

At the time I received the tip, I asked the Captain for comment on the purchase of illicit weaponry from cargo by the Warden.  The Captain replied: "If that is the case, then it has not been brought to my attention. I will inquire with Commander Lock, but I do imagine that he has the situation well in hand, or else will shortly.  I have the utmost confidence in our station's Security staff."

 

I was about to go to Cargo to inquire further... when cargo came to me.  A scared cargo tech by the name of Luther Davis sent me a PDA message that he had discovered something and he needed to see me personally.  I had originally promised Mr. Davis a candid conversation using him anonymously as background in my investigation.  However, I am now publishing his comments here for reasons that I believe they are exculpatory of his prior illegal act of breaking into the Warden's order.  (I should note here that this does not excuse subsequent illegal conduct by Mr. Davis, however his state of mind should be considered - he was highly paranoid due to discovering the scope of what he had discovered by breaking into the crate.

 

Mr. Davis came in wearing a gas mask.  I asked him if there was an atmos issue in the area, and I began recording.  "No, just to protect my face coming here...  I have evidence that the cargo manager is dealing illegal firearms."

 

Then Mr. Davis placed a mini-Uzi on my desk.

 

Mr. Davis admitted that he had broken into a crate in cargo, one ordered by the Warden, and discovered the mini-Uzi.  Taking the mini-Uzi, he ran to me.    Before I could question him further or suggest that he go to security, a station engineer barged in to check an APC and Mr. Davis nearly ran off.  When a security officer also stopped by separately to discuss the ongoing investigation in cargo, Mr. Davis got spooked and he ran off with the mini-Uzi.  Those unfortunate moments likely caused Mr. Davis to sacrifice his freedom and turn nearly to suicide.

 

The security officer mentioned that security was on the lookout for a missing machine pistol and I ran to see if I could locate the cargo tech.  Before finding him, I found the Captain and let him know that I had a source who had discovered a machine pistol and who was in fear for his life.  I explained to the Captain that my source, who I did not identify, wanted to prove the corruption in cargo and security.  Before I could say much more, security had already found Mr. Davis.  Caged in like an animal, Mr. Davis turned his weapon on the responder, firing blindly in their direction.  No one appeared to get hurt, however Mr. Davis was ultimately apprehended after a standoff that included Mr. Davis threatening suicide.

 

Mr. Davis's state of mind was one of a paranoid man not knowing where to turn.  He knew a senior official in security made an illicit order.  The Quartermaster approved this illicit order and had recently died in an accident, two separate reasons why going to them would have been unproductive.  Mr. Davis was not aware of how far the extent of the corruption went.

 

I confronted the Warden in front of the Captain.  Her illicit actions started the chain of events ending in the Cargo Tech's near-suicide and arrest.  She provided a number of incredible excuses for her crime.

 


 

THE WARDEN'S EXCUSES

 

Following are a number of excuses, many conflicting, that the Warden provided regarding purchasing a mini-Uzi on Code Green.

 

"I bought a machine pistol without any ammunition to see if it would fit in my holster."

 

"When I saw that it didn't fit [in my holster], I would've returned it."

 

"It was for a personal sidearm."

 

"The chief allowed me to purchase a ballistic sidearm, because I prefer them over beam weapons."

 


 

At the end of all of this, the Warden committed yet another crime, that of blame-shifting.

 

"Perhaps that scared technician shouldn't have broken into a crate not belonging to him, and have stolen weaponry."

 

It is the stance of JACK ACTION NEWS! that while Cargo Tech Luther Davis was horribly misguided in breaking into the mini-Uzi crate and then subsequently firing blindly on security when he was scared of being imprisoned, this situation would ultimately have been avoided had Warden Lakeisha Allard not committed the initial illegal act of making the purchase of an unnecessary lethal sidearm for personal possession on Code Green, in violation of law and Standard Operating Procedure.  No one should be more familiar with the law than a senior member of security.

 

She should be held fully accountable.

Can you rename my quartermaster or omit the part where he got crushed by an elevator?-Say he retired to his office for the rest of the shift or something. Thanks.

Anyway I really like the articles you do, they're really well put together, and have got my hands on some of your newspapers in-game which always give me a laugh. I'll be looking out for articles you public in-game and here.
