In 2003, I was a boy of 22 years,

who served after the attacks of September 11.

A boy who did not want to sit.

A kid who wanted to make a difference.

You know, in war,

you can give to your life.

Give a member,

or leave the body intact.

And back home safely.

But you ...

There's a stranger inside your skin.

The first thing you know,

The first is that if matter.

Somewhere in the world

Behind a steel door of a prison cell.

Uma VOZ sai ...

but no one listens.

I am eternally ...

A stranger ...

Guys, welcome to the vehicle industry.

It's good to have new faces around here.

blown up in the world.

The more transport missions occur,

we will have more work.

Sometimes it's chaotic.

Sometimes, there is nothing to do.

I know I asked this before,

but collaborate with me, okay?

The base is weak as the patrolling.

We do not have enough members

to care for thousands of inmates.

So volunteers are asking the police to cover shifts.

I can liberate some of you.

So if anyone wants the opportunity,

talk to me.

Nobody went to the police because the Soldier Ferrell.

Who is this?

If you're the police, has one of the two duties.

care for hundreds of inmates

in complex external

and some may be innocent.

They were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Others are very bad.

They fill you all day. You turn a adult babysitter.

you work in the safe side,

caring for some of the sickest people in the world.

There are things that you can not even look.

Are you understanding?

The Soldier Ferrell signed up to the police a few months ago.

Took place at the safe side.

Just giving a shot in the foot.

By accident.

F*** that a**hole.

Soldier Ferrell sh*t.

He is at home watching the football preseason

Jody on Bars and drinking pia colada.

This place is already miserable enough.

and will be fine.
