Yesterday, Mitsuhama Spice Corp. was attacked by a group of supers known to be in Splitstream’s crew. “They forced their way in and went straight for the R&D wing,” according to one of the scientists working at the time. “They didn’t make any demands. Just started tearing the place apart.” Three people were killed in the attack while eleven were sent to the hospital in critical condition.
According to Raymond Pitts, the acting police chief, this behavior is out of the ordinary for members of Splitstream’s gang. “Normally, they don’t come out of the Sprawl but rather stick to their turf wars. On occasion, we might find them venturing out on the edge, going as far as 5th street, but they have never seemed to have had any issue with Mitsuhama. It’s very unusual.” When asked why the sudden change in behavior he had this to say. “It’s too soon to know for certain right now. Maybe there was a falling out with these particular members and are no longer part of Splitstream’s gang. There could have been an exchange of power we haven’t heard about. Or Splitstream could be just getting bored with his old crimes.”
While most people outside the crime scene were concerned citizens and just wanted to know what was going on, there were a handful of people praising the actions of these terrorists. “I’m glad it happened. Mitsuhama is playing God and messing with nature. They should end their supers program,” according to one protester who declined to give her name.
Mitsuhama Corp wants to tell their clients there is nothing to worry about. The repairs will take weeks, perhaps months, to complete, but it’s not the only place this research is kept. No one should have to put off getting or maintaining their powers but may have to meet at a different location until repairs are complete. Once the site is back up and running security will be improved as well.
