The issue opens in the midst of a stand off. A police officer has been shot and his female partner is used as a human shield by a crazed snitch of the Punisher. The Punisher shoots the man nicking the woman in the arm. She checks on the other officer and the Punisher walks over to his snitch and executes him. As the Punisher moves to leave she tries to arrest him. He tells her to do what she thinks is right and walks away. She makes no effort to stop him and later refuses to give a comment to the press.
