After nearly five years of appeals,

Dino moretti, reputed lieutenant

Of the franco crime family,

Was released from prison today

And acquitted of all charges

In connection with the murders

Of police officer frank castle

And his family.

Moretti has long

maintained his innocence,

Claims he has no idea who is responsible

For the 125 mysterious gangland murders,

Often attributed to a shadowy figure

Known as the punisher,

Which have occurred here

Over the last half decade.

Laurie silvers has this report.

Mr. Moretti?

How does it feel to

be finally acquitted?

It feels great.

Just great.

The government says

it's going to appeal.

Let them appeal a hundred times.

I'll still win.

This is america.

If a man is innocent, justice prevails.

Are you worried about the punisher?

Let me tell you something

about this punisher,

Whoever he is.

If he ever shows up

within 1,000 yards of me,

He'll find out what the

word punished really means.

Now, if you'll excuse me.

And there you have it.

The dapper don,

Allegedly head of the

powerful franco crime family,

Once again shrugging off

any fear of the punisher

Despite the fact that over

Have been murdered by

the self-Styled vigilante

In the last five years.

This is laurie silvers

for channel 8 news.

Hey, what do you think?

Maybe i got a future in politics.

Enough of the jokes.

Break out the champagne.

I'll get it, boss.

No. First things first.

You guys check the house.

Mikey, start the music around here.

Winning isn't everything

It's the only thing...

What the f*ck?



Come on, you guys. Party time.



Switch on those cameras!

Keep them rolling!

Come on, guys!

Move it!

Keep it rolling!

Keep it rolling!

Look, there's somebody there.

I got the tight shot.

Who is that?

Holy shit! The punisher!

It's him!

Move in for a close-Up!

Are you getting it?

Out of the way!

Are you getting it?

I got shit all over the place!

Keep them going!

Come on, god.

Answer me.

It's years i'm asking you why.

Why are the innocent dead

And the guilty alive?

Where is justice?

Where is punishment?

Or have you already answered?

Have you already said to the world,

"Here is justice, here is punishment,"


In me?

Mommy, aren't we going

to wait for daddy?

Daddy's working.

We'll meet him at grandma's.




Are you being pressured to resign

As head of the punisher task force?

No comment.

Do you have leads?

No comment.

Do you still think

Frank castle and the

punisher are the same person?


Don't you people have

anything better to do

With your time?

It's 2:
00 in the god damn

morning, for christ's sake.


Hey, give me a break.

Now, that was smart.

Very smart.

The chief of detectives.

It must be important.

It is.

I have a message from the mayor.

I quote, "frank castle is dead."

No more talk about him being otherwise.

You tow the line or you get the boot.

You'd go along with that, too.

We cannot let the public think

There's some psychotic

ex-Cop whacking off wise guys

Like he's got a hunting license.

Why not?

Why not?

Berkowitz, it's late.

I'm tired.

You're warned.

What the hell ever happened to you?

Excuse me, lieutenant berkowitz?

I'm detective sam leary.



I worked with you once five years ago.

Did the moretti heroin bust.

It was my first

assignment plain-Clothes.

I was the hooker.

Oh, right.

What can i do for you, detective?

I'd like to be your partner.

I don't work with a partner.

But you used to.

Used to. Past tense.

I'm not after a free ride.
