Justin Lafferty was a young man who, in 1993, at the age of five, was kidnapped from his parents by deranged widower and ex-marksman Herman Capshaw, who brainwashed him to kill as a "soldier" in Capshaw's "revolution".


For ten years, Capshaw raised Lafferty in an environment of near-total co-dependence. In 2003, the construction company where Capshaw worked ran over budget on a job, and Capshaw's boss, Charlie Rodriguez, was planning to fire him. Justin decided that the only way to prevent this was to kill Rodriguez, and thus used Capshaw's sniper rifle to go on a small rampage on Mott Street, killing Rodriguez and three others. Eventually captured, Justin was institutionalized after his attorney managed to convince a jury that he had been pressured into the shootings by Capshaw.
