A profile of Jerry, a Rioter of The Division, for Stories of The Division. Sponsored by Ubisoft.
“Early on after the virus hit, I was working security in midtown. It was great. We're talkin' double, triple pay. At first cops were everywhere, the Army too. But then people start acting like animals, burning buildings down, sick people in the streets, covered in nasty sores… So I was like, screw this. Keep your triple pay, I’m out. But they quarantined the city. No getting out. We're trapped.
"Me and some buddies started breaking into apartments. Gotta eat, right? Most of the places were empty, or else, you know. Not alive. This one place, though. A couple was still living there. They seemed nice or whatever, normal people. We just wanted food, right? And they’re like ‘no.’ No? We’re starving, gimme a friggin’ break! Some words are spoken, the guy lunges, it's crazy, next thing I know, he’s on the ground, the woman’s screaming… It was self-defense, right? I never shot nobody before that. They should've just given us their food.
"That's just how it is now, that's the reality. Law of the jungle."
