"Let's not waste any time getting into the building," Barnes said to Jim, as he stopped the car in front of the building. "The cop is going in with us, but keep your eyes open." And with that Barnes prepared to exit the car, but waited just long enough to give Jim a chance to exit first.

Jim nods, "Yes Ma'am, I will" he says, before getting out of the SUV, he then strides round to Miss Barnes' door and opens it for her - eyes always on the crowd, looking amongst the hate-filled faces for anyone looking unusually calm and collected.
