Chapter 97 Contest of Background
Wang Jianfeng said coldly, “If you feel there’s anything wrong with our law enforcement procedures, you can report it to our supervisors, but you have to cooperate with us now, or I’ll hold you interference with a public function.”
Feng Tianda said, “Wang Jianfeng, don’t try to play the ‘public function’ card. You’re just a captain of the criminal unit. You’re unqualified to make the decision here in Jiangnan.”
“Now be smart and get out of here with your people, or you’ll have to bear all the consequences when Deputy Director Liu gets here later.”
“Who is Deputy Director Liu?”
Qin Haodong asked Nalan Wuxia in a low voice.
Nalan Wuxia said, “He’s the Deputy Director of Jiangnan Public Security Bureau. It’s said that he has a very close connection with the Feng’s Group.”
“OK.” Qin Haodong had figured it out why the guy turned so confident just after one call. It turned out that he had found support.
He said to Feng Tianda, “You just had a competition of the number of people. Are we switching to a competition of background support now?”
Feng Tianda said, “So what? Let me tell you this, gigolo boy. You’re so unqualified to start with Feng Family in Jiangnan.”
Wang Jianfeng frowned slightly. His working class was much lower than Deputy Director, so things would be harder to deal with if Deputy Director Liu really got here.
Feng Tianda seemed to have noticed his hesitation. He yelled arrogantly, “Wang Jianfeng. Just take my advice and leave with your people, or you may lose your job.”
At this moment, a black sedan rushed over.
“It’s Director Liu!”
Feng Tianda rushed and opened the door happily. A middle-aged man in his fifties got off the car. He’s the Deputy Director of Jiangnan Public Security Bureau, Liu Bingzhong.
“Uncle Liu, there you are! Those fellows of yours were bullying me so badly.” Feng Tianda started complaining at once.
“I know.” Liu Bingzhong had been getting along well with the Feng Family, and he had benefited a lot in secret from the relationship. Now that the Feng Family were in trouble, he had no reason to ignore it. Above all, those trouble-makers were his subordinates.
He strolled to Wang Jianfeng and Nalan Wuxia with his both hands on his back, and asked bureaucratically, “What’s going on? Who sent you here? Do you have any idea that improper law enforcement will affect the daily operation of the company?”
Nalan Wuxia was not afraid of Liu Bingzhong at all. She said, “Director Liu, you just arrived here. How do you know our enforcement is improper when you barely know what’s going on?”
Liu Bingzhong’s expression froze because he didn’t expect that Nalan Wuxia would let him lose face before so many people. He said it sternly, “The operation this time was such a large-scale one, but you didn’t report it to me. I don’t know what else can be called improper if this isn’t.”
Nalan Wuxia said, “Director Liu, did you forget that the Criminal Police Unit has been assigned under the leadership of Chief Fang? We don’t need to report to you.”
“Well…” Liu Bingzhong was suddenly speechless. Nalan Wuxia was right, the criminal unit of Jiangnan City had been assigned under the direct supervision of Fang Chuanxiong by the Public Security Bureau.
But after all he had been in the officialdom for long. Soon he added, “No matter who’s your supervisor, you’ll have to have evidence of the case. Do you have any evidence? Besides, why are you in a gemstone exhibition for an anti-drug case? Is there any drug hidden in the stones?”
Nalan Wuxia said, “You’re right, Director Liu. There’s the drug in the stones.”
She handed a laboratory report to Liu Bingzhong after she said that. Then she added, “This is the result of a test conducted by our criminal unit on the raw jade gemstones. They contain a lot of heroin inside.”
Meng Tie’s expression suddenly changed. He knew clearly about what was wrong with the stone, but he had no idea when the criminal unit had taken the samples and did the test. It was such a firm guarded place here, and no outsiders were allowed inside.
Liu Bingzhong turned gloomy as he picked up the result. He turned back and looked at Feng Tianda.
Feng Tianda yelled, “Nalan Wuxia, how dare you make a fake test result? You’re just trying to help the Lin’s Group and this gigolo boy.”
“That’s nonsense, who said that this is a fake result?”
Feng Tianda argued with hatred, “Then tell me when you took the samples and who was the witness of the test？”
Liu Bingzhong seemed to have found a weak point. He turned back to Nalan Wuxia and said, “Yes, Captain Nalan. Your sample collection procedure was illegal. When did you get the evidence from here?”
Nalan Wuxia was suddenly tongue-tied because she couldn’t tell others that Qin Haodong stole the sample out of here.
Wang Jianfeng said, “Director Liu. This is actually simple. We’ve got enough stones here. We can just collect a sample and run the test again. We’ll handle it according to the law if it the result was true, and if it’s not, Captain Nalan and I will apologize to the Feng’s Group.”
Feng Tianda was much more confident when he had Liu Bingzhong by his side. He yelled, “That’s nonsense. What do you think the Feng’s Group is? Are you fooling us around? Your behavior now has dealt great damage to our group. You have to leave with your men now, and then apologize.”
Liu Bingzhong said with a sullen face, “Yes. We’ve been stressed it that we should serve the enterprises. Look at what you’ve done now. You came here and arrested people without evidence. That’s not how policemen behave. Now get out of here with your people and apologized to the Feng’s Group.”
Wang Jianfeng was in a dilemma. He trusted in Qin Haodong from the bottom of his heart, or he wouldn’t have brought so many people here and encircled the gemstone exhibition site. Now that Liu Bingzhong was his supervisor, he had no choice but to stop the operation.”
Liu Bingzhong grew more upset when he saw his subordinate didn’t listen to him. He said coldly, “Captain Wang, are you ignoring my order now? Don’t forget you’re a policeman. You must obey the order of your superior. Now do as what I’ve said.”
It was now even more difficult for Wang Jianfeng to decide. Everything they had done would be put in vain if he got away with his fellows, and there was little chance that they could solve the case in the future. But he couldn’t resist it because Liu Bingzhong had ordered.
Nalan Wuxia opened her mouth but she didn’t speak out anything. She and her family weren’t afraid of Liu Bingzhong at all, but his working class was much higher than hers, and plus, Wang Jianfeng was set in between them, and Nalan Wuxia couldn’t make the decision for the captain because she was just the vice-captain.
Seeing that Liu Bingzhong had taken control of the whole situation, Feng Tianda looked proud. Meng Tie, who was standing behind him, felt such a relief, too.
“Director Liu, are you sure you want to favor the Feng Family? It must be uneasy for you to reach the position you’re in now, so don’t make the wrong choice because it will be too late to regret.”
Said Qin Haodong. He had no choice but to stand out when seeing that both Wang Jianfeng and Nalan Wuxia were in an awkward position to speak.
Liu Bingzhong frowned when he saw a young man in his 20s was talking to him in that tone. He asked, “Who are you? What are you doing here?”
“My name is Qin Haodong, I am a doctor.”
Feng Tianda seized the opportunity and whispered to Liu Bingzhong at once, “Uncle Liu. He’s a kept man of Lin Momo. He’s the one making all the fuzz today.”
Liu Bingzhong looked directly at Qin Haodong and said coldly, “I’m the Deputy Director of the Public Security Bureau. You’re in no position to tell me what to do.”
Qin Haodong shook his head and said, “You must know what’s wrong or right as a Deputy Director, and you’ll regret that you’ve favored the crimes.”
Liu Bingzhong yelled at Wang Jianfeng in a fury, “The man was mixing right with wrong and slandering the Deputy Director. I need you to arrest him right now, and deal with him sternly.”
He was really angry because the little young doctor was ignoring the big respectful director. He had to teach him a lesson.
But just after he said that, somebody else said it out aloud, “What a fearsome bureaucratic card! Director Liu!”
He looked back and saw the leader of the Special Task Force, Fang Chuanxiong, walking inside.
“Chief Fang, there you are.”
Liu Bingzhong walked towards in a hurry and greeted him. He might be the Deputy Director of the bureau of the city, but Fang Chuanxiong was here with the power assigned to him by the Department of Police. Fang Chuanxiong’s position was even higher than that of the Director of Jiangnan Public Security Bureau, not to mention the Deputy Director.
He thought he had the highest position and could control everything, but the situation immediately changed as Fang Chuanxiong arrived.
Fang Chuanxiong ignored Liu Bingzhong and spoke to Qin Haodong, “Brother Qin. You’ve helped me so much this time. I’ll ask them to reward you after we finish this case.”
He said it earnestly. He was the leader of the Special Case Team. The position was high and stressful. He was worried so much because he heard the information from the Golden Triangle that the drugs had already arrived in Huaxia, but he had no idea how to catch it at all.
He felt overjoyed when he heard from Wang Jianfeng that Qin Haodong had found the drugs flowing into Jiangnan City. He set out here in a hurry, but was trapped in the traffic jam, and that was why he was late.
Liu Bingzhong was dumbfounded. He knew Fang Chuanxiong clearly, a guy who’s influential, powerful, and proud. He hasn’t been very polite to the director since he was in Jiangnan City, but now it looked like he respected the young man so much. Did he just say that he was a doctor? What was happening?
Qin Haodong said, “Brother Fang. I’ll be arrested if you were here any later.”
He wouldn’t mind taking the chance to rub Liu Bingzhong’s nose on it considering how bureaucratic the man had just been.
Fang Chuanxiong said, “Take it easy, Brother Qin. No one dares to touch you as long as I am here.”
After that he turned to Liu Bingzhong and asked, “Director Liu, were you at the meeting days ago? Now the criminal unit of Jiangnan City is under my charge. Why are you here giving orders?”
“Well…” Liu Bingzhong felt awkward, but he had to answer it anyway, “I felt that their procedure for handling the case is improper, so…”
Fang Chuanxiong interrupted him when he said that, “Director Liu, you said their procedures are improper. But is it proper that you intervene in the case?”
“Well…” Cold sweat was dripping off Liu Bingzhong’s forehead. Fang Chuanxiong’s position was much higher than his, and what was worse, he was the one breaking rules in the first place.
“Forget about it. Let’s call it today. I’ll report to the supervisor later.” Fang Chuanxiong turned to Wang Jianfeng and said, “Captain Wang, you can start the case.”
“Yes, sir!” Wang Jianfeng answered loudly. The depression in his chest was long gone.
Fang Tianda was dumbfounded when seeing the big support he invited here was stepped over. He wondered how the gigolo boy has met with a bigwig like Fang Chuanxiong.
He looked at Liu Bingzhong again and was thinking about the next move, but Liu Bingzhong lowered his head and ignored him.
He wasn’t surprised because Liu Bingzhong was in a difficult position to save himself, not to mention the Feng’s Group. If Fang Chuanxiong, with his high position, really reported him to the supervisor, he might lose his job as the Deputy Director.
Wang Jianfeng and Nalan Wuxia immediately started to arrest the workers as long as Fang Chuanxiong ordered. See the game was as good as lost, Meng Tie yelled, “Stop, all of you! Or I’ll blow all of you up!”
All eyes were caught by Meng Tie after he yelled. He unbuttoned his shirt and there were lots of explosive wrapped on his waist. He was holding a black remote control in his hand.
