Linewatch

Synopsis: Michael Dixon is a seasoned agent working linewatch on the US/Mexico Border. Well respected by his peers at US Border Patrol, and well loved by his family (wife Angela and 5 year old daughter Emily), Michael's world is suddenly threatened by secrets from his past. Michael was not always the respectable family man he now has become - he was a vicious Los Angeles gang member who turned his back on the gang and his own brutal ways. But no one can quit the gang, so when a chance encounter leads the gang to Michael in New Mexico, Michael is forced to find a way to protect his family, even if it means helping the psychotic gang leader Drake smuggle a truckload of drugs across the border.

Call Lordsburg.

Now.

- How many, Mike?

- Nine.

Is that a passport?

It's fake, but it's good work.

You goin' after him?

I don't think the driver's

more than 12 hours away.

What kind of sick son of a bitch

would do something like that?

Stay here. I'm gonna get a bearing.

- Four-two-one. Four-two-one.

- Go ahead, Mike.

Swing around the hill

and pick me up at the seventy-six wash.

Copy that, I'm on my way.

- Was he here long?

- He's got food and water.

More than he left for them.

Well, let's keep movin'.

This guy's fast.

All those people dying,

those little kids, and for what?

Just tryin' to improve their lives,

just tryin' to have a little bit more

of what we got.

That's why I say

you gotta count your blessings every day.

Sophia hates it when I say that.

To her it's like saying,

"You're stuck here forever. Deal with it. "

Well, what'd she expect? Paris?

You know what she did the other day?

She went and bought Cheyo a suit.

- I mean, where is he gonna wear a suit?

- First two years are the hardest.

Goes around in the same sweatpants

all week long, doesn't even wash her hair.

Flowers work.

Take this right, right here.

There's somebody I gotta go see.

Vargas.

Vargas.

Hey.

- Stop.

- Hey.

- I didn't do shit, Dixon.

- Hold it. Hold it right there.

Vargas. Vargas.

Hey, call your dog off, Dixon.

He's got a gun.

Put your gun away.

Stop.

Hey, Dixon, man, what's with the gun?

- I told you to stop.

- Vargas.

Careful, Luis.

Call him off. Come on, man.

Come on, man, call your dog off.

I got him, I got him.

Vargas. What the hell you doin'

assaultin' an officer?

He had a gun.

- You were...

- Hey, hey, back up. Get over there.

- I didn't do shit.

- You always do shit.

The passports in the trailer.

Who you sell 'em to?

The what?

Passports in the box, man.

Who you selling 'em to?

I don't know what you're

talkin' about, chief.

Oh, I'm sure the dead little girl we found

would disagree with you.

No, no, no. Not me.

Dixon, man, come on, you know me.

You don't tell me about the passports,

you goin' down for the girl

and the eight other bodies

we found with her.

I ain't no murderer.

- Who'd you sell the passports to?

- Man, I don't know, man. It's some new haul.

- What'd he look like?

- Dark skin, dark hair, not that tall.

- Where can I find him?

- I don't know. I'd tell you, I swear, if I knew.

- I swear, man.

- Stop cryin' like a little bitch.

- Where can I find him?

- I don't know, man, I swear.

If I find out you're lyin' to me,

I'm comin' back.

What the hell you still

doin' around here, Mike?

You know, you could have got yourself

a transfer long time ago.

What for?

I don't know. Shit. Civilization.

Never really much of a people person.

I'm startin' to sense that, Mike.

Seven-nine-three, over.

One-five calling seven-nine-three.

We go over to the next valley, maybe get

ahead of him, or at least pick up on his trail.

You think he's makin' for the highway

or the border?

- He's been headed east the entire time.

- Then he's stupid, or lost.

- There's those work camps over there.

- What, the shanty towns?

Looks like he's headed right for 'em.

Looks like somebody was in a hurry.

Let me go talk to 'em.

- I got this one.

- Yeah.

Drop it!

Freeze.

Cook.

Now just look at me, Luis.

You just look at me.

This is four-two-one

requesting immediate assistance.

Officer down. Repeat, officer down.

My boy, my boy.

All right, get Ballistics.

Okay.

Big night for you, Mike. Any warning shots?

Whole clip of 'em.

Guess you warned 'em to death.

They gunned down my partner.
