Over at L.J.'s place, L.J., Ben, and Jonah talk about the case.
L.J. points out that they will never win if everyone on the other side just lies all the time.
When Jonah reminds them that the chief of police is on their side, Ben corrects him—it's true the guy arrested the White Raiders that night, but since then he's done nothing. Plus he's known lynchings are happening for a while, and hasn't done anything about that either.
All of a sudden the men hear thunder, which is weird since it's not raining.
Sure enough, when Ben looks outside, instead of a brewing storm, he sees a mob of 40 men with guns and pitchforks.
