Beep beepZhao Yu had just reached home when he got Jiang Xiaoqings WeChat message: "Officer Zhao, I saw the three men crawl out the door just now! Were they beaten up by you? Are you okay? Should I call for an ambulance or the police? Reply ASAP"
Zhao Yu laughed and quickly went to the balcony with the phone in his hand. He waved to the worried Jiang Xiaoqing. "Xiaoqing, Im okay! Play with the dog for a while, I have something important to settle!"
Jiang Xiaoqing had wanted to probe further, but Zhao Yu had already gone back into the house. He found a number in his phone and dialed it immediately. He was calling Supervisor Lu Zhaohong from the Anti-Pornography and Illegal Activities Unit of Rongyang Branch.
"Hello, is this Supervisor Lu? Do you know who I am? Im Zhao Yu" Although Zhao Yu and Supervisor Zhao were merely acquaintances, they were in the same branch.
Supervisor Lu quickly recognized Zhao Yus voice and laughed as he replied, "Hey? Bro Zhao? This is really unexpected...Whats up?"
"Bro, keke" Zhao Yu also laughed. "As its an urgent matter, I shall not beat around the bush. Im calling you because of something really, really important!"
"Oh?" As Zhao Yu had solved a few major cases, he had already made a name for himself in all of Rongyang Branch. Since he said that he had something important to discuss, Lu Zhaohong naturally did not dare to ignore it and gave him his full attention.
"Keke" Zhao Yu laughed. "Bro, I guess you must have heard that a big leader from the province police station will be stationed at our unit?"
"Oh?" Lu Zhaohong frowned and quickly nodded. "Yes, thats right! The head bureau chief has already introduced him to all of the colleagues in our branch! Whats wrong?"
"Its like this! This leader...we know each other personally. Im not sure if youve heard about that?" Zhao Yu asked mysteriously.
"Yes, yes, yes!" Lu Zhaohong said. "Of course Ive heard. That leader is not friendly with anyone else but you, Bro Zhao! You have a really wide network!"
"Please dont say that!" Zhao Yu said idly. "Its like that. He gave me quite a lot of information when we were having a meal together! And the information mainly concerns you, so I thought to tell you immediately. Dont tell anyone else about this!"
"Ah!?" Lu Zhaohong was stunned. "Yes, yes, yes, dont worry bro!"
"Actually...its quite simple." Zhao Yu quickly got to the main topic seeing that the other party had fallen for his trick. "The main reason why he come to our branch is because the illegal gambling activity at some of the red-light districts are getting out of hand, and this area has already gotten their attention! With your years of experience, I guess I need not say more? They are not investigating on the illegal activities, but on the conduct of us police officers!"
"Ah!?" Lu Zhaohong was dumbstruck and he stammered, "B-bro! Weve been working hard on this area recently. I guess there shouldnt be any problem?"
"Kekeke...I guess youre unaware!" Zhao Yu sighed and pretended to be hesitant before telling Lu Zhaohong cautiously, "Bro, I shall be honest with you, the province police station has already given me a mission, and Ive gotten news that illegal activities such as prostitution, gambling, drug dealing, mob fights, and etc. at Chahai Street have been really serious recently! Ill send you the evidence in a bit if you dont believe me! It took me great effort to get this piece of information!"
"Ah!?" Chahai Street was under the jurisdiction of Rongyang Branch. If there were any illegal activities going on there, Lu Zhaohong and his Anti-pornography and Illegal Activities Unit would be the first to bear the brunt. Lu Zhaohong was extremely terrified by Zhao Yus news and quickly asked, "Bro, bro! I believe you, why wouldnt I believe you! Ah...this is such a big news! Thank you for telling me. If you hadnt,I would be in deep trouble!"
"Dont mention it! Were from the same branch and we should stand as one!" Zhao Yu continued, "You are the first one I thought of when I got this news! Let me put it this way, the higher-ups are now mainly investigating on a local tyrant called Hong Zhitao. This man calls himself Master Hong, and he has already done countless illegal activities, and is under special investigation by the provincial police office! Ive just received news that he will be doing some major illegal activities in the next hour...Bro! If you can get rid of them at this critical juncture, kekeke"
"Oh" Lu Zhaohong already had goosebumps all over. He quickly thanked Zhao Yu, "Bro, Im really grateful that youre giving me help at a time like this!"
"Bro, Im not trying to give myself credit here," Zhao Yu continued with his acting, "but even the bureau chief has yet to figure out what the provincial police want exactly! If you are able to settle this nicely now, wouldnt the rest be easy in the future? If you do well next time, dont forget about me!"
"Ah, sure, of course! Ill definitely remember your kindness!" Lu Zhaohong said with gratitude. "Youll be like my real brother from now on! Ill definitely do a good job! Ill go gather some officers now!"
"Yes, you have to be fast!" Zhao Yu advised. "Also, youve gotta make them strike out when dealing with these organized crime syndicates. Not only do you have to defeat them, but you have to get rid of them completely! Especially that Hong Zhitao. Hes committed so many crimes and the provincial police has already gotten much evidence against him. If you do less than them, it may not look too good"
"I understand! Dont worry! Ill definitely check thoroughly!" Lu Zhaohong said. "Bro, if hear more good stuff in future, dont forget about me! Ill need your advice!"
"Dont worry!" Zhao Yu laughed. "Ill send you the recording that I got in a little bit. But for now, you better take action fast!"
"Alright! Ill talk to you again, bro!" Lu Zhaohong patted his chest. "No words can express my gratitude, bro. Wait until after the matter is settled and see how I perform!"
After hanging up, Zhao Yu laughed, feeling satisfied. He started to edit the recording, deleting the beginning and end, and sent Lu Zhaohong only the important parts. With this recording as evidence, Lu Zhaohong would definitely put in great effort!
"Heh heh heh" Zhao Yu could not help but laugh and say to himself, "Ive done such a good deed today, getting rid of a menace to society. Is the completion rate going to be perfect this time? I wonder what good stuff Ill receive this time?"
However, it could also be understood that the power of the government was still the greatest! With just a phone call, the years of hard work of Hong Zhitao and his men was going to be destroyed overnight!
MmmSomething struck Zhao Yu from the bottom of his heart, making him feel that an evil gangster would never come to a good end no matter how well he did. As a result, he had a new view on life and understanding for his identity as a police officer. He realized that...it was not necessary to fight and kill to settle something, and it could still be settled nicely! Alright, the tyrant issue had been settled, so...what was next? Once he thought about Yang Hong and Huahua staying opposite of him, Zhao Yu felt hot all over...
