Hundreds of displaced people filled the streets, people too poor to live anywhere else, shoved up against the line of riot cops holding Lincoln Boulevard. The very same cops that had just cleared them from their homes. The crowd crackled with anger and confusion and something else. FBI Special Agent Jason Xia sensed it as he and his partner pushed their way through the mob.
Xia inhaled the thick, greasy smell of it, mostly sweat with just a trace of something else underneath: the coppery scent of blood. They were afraid -- the citizens, the reporters, hell, even the cops.
And really, who could blame them?
He was afraid, too.
