Jesus, if they get wind of this,

they'll have a field day.

This changes things.

I thought we were dealing with

a psychotic, not a psychopath.

With such incredible strength,

he must be...

...under extreme mental distress

or on some kind of stimulant.

Who is this?

I'm curious. How did you know he was

going to strike at that club last night?

I didn't.

- But you were there before he struck.

- So?

That's an incredible coincidence.

Do you know what this is?

It's a medical report on you.

The doctors say you have anxiety neurosis

to the point of being paranoid.

Doctors don't know shit.

How many weapons are you carrying,

besides this cannon?

- An MP-15.

- What else?

- A Glock 50.

- And?

An A-3 assault shotgun.

If that's not paranoid,

I don't know what the f*ck is.

I'm surprised you don't have

a grenade launcher.

- I couldn't get a permit.

- This isn't funny!

- I just want to be ready.

- Ready for what?

You can't even find the bastard,

let alone shoot him.

I can find him.

If you know so much about this fella...

...how come we've got a corpse

with her heart ripped out?

And you're up alleyways

shooting at water rats.

- Have you been following me?

- Damn right, he has.

Paranoid people with guns

are a menace to society.

You'd be paranoid, too, if you had

a dipshit like this following you.

This dipshit happens to be

an expert on serial killers.

If he's such an expert,

what the f*ck is he following me for?

You're officially off suspension.

But if you f*ck up again...

...I'll have your arse shipped

to the worst hellhole on this planet.

Worse than this place?

And there's a condition, Stone,

my condition.

He goes with you.

I work alone.

You work with who I say,

or you don't work at all.

'Cause as far as I'm concerned,
