5:21 pm
not just killed. they beheaded him. well, that's awful, but can they actually sue them for that? this isn't the army. the company sent its employees on a suicide mission. (mrs. howell) when nick died over there, nobody would even answer our questions. if he'd still been in the service, it would have been in the paper. they probably would have had a parade for him in town. but from his diamond river people, nothing. that's why we went to see ms. rosen. we thought she could get to the bottom of what happened. no disrespect intended, but weren't you looking to collect damages? oh, we're not doing so good. the only reason nick took the job with that company was so he could help us get out of debt. for your medical expenses? i have ms. vernon had to switch to part-time at the plant so he could look after me. our kid is risking his life in iraq and they're trying to take away our house 'cause we got no health insurance. did nick ever mention his supervisor? jeffrey pope?

(green) yeah, well, you're screwed because it matches the slugs we found in jeffrey pope's chest. look, robbie. i was in vietnam, okay? i lost a lot of good buddies overhere because some prep boy captain didn't know his johnson bar from his elbow. so for you to lose a brother like that. man, that's gotta be rough. come on, man. don't baby his ass. he killed pope 'cause he wanted revenge. now he's gonna sit here like a little coward? now, wait a minute. you don't think he deserved revenge? pope got this kid's brother's head chopped off, for crying out loud. and there isn't a jury in the world that would convict him. (green) yeah, he's noble? he's notven standing up and taking responsibility for it, like a man. look, robbie. you gotta get out in front of this thing right now. i'm telling ya, it's your only shot. i don't know. oh, come on, man. let's just give this to the da. we already know that he got that headlight fixed
5:25 pm
and we have a witness that saw you dump pope's cell phone near the midtown tunnel. he couldn't have seen me. why not? 'cause i wasn't there. see what i'm saying, man? kevin took the honda that night. wait a second. kevin? kevin who? kevin boatman. i picked him up at the airport. he stayed in nick's room that night. he wanted a car to drive tthe city. did you go with him? no. i swear. i didn't. where'd he get the gun? it was nick's. did you give it to him? yeah. so you knew that that was gonna lead to trouble, didn't you? i don't know. i guess. why did you go along with it? well, i told kevin the lawyer didn't think she could help my mom and dad. and kevin said that wasn't right. that somebody should pay for what happened to nick. pay? pay how? well, if pope wouldn't help us with our lawsuit, kevin was gonna get justice one way or the other.
5:26 pm
how did you come to blame pope for what happened to your brother, anyway? kevin said they told pope the road was too hot that day. that they were gonna get hit. pope didn't care. he said they had a contract. that the reason they got a fat paycheck was to take risks. and my brother-- after they blew up my brother's truck, kevin radioed pope for help, but pope wouldn't send the rest of the team. he left nick out there for those animals.
