"To serve and protect..." Funny, would've thought "To extort and torture" might fit better. Not sure what this guy's beef is with badges, but if you don't step in, they'll be scrapin' him off the sidewalk. Once they smear him there first, of course. But I dunno... maybe it's for the best? After all, no one's in Night City's dyin' an innocent soul.

        If you do the streetkid path then the only options left for you are to let him go or get money if you pass a cool check at 13

          Quest Giver - cops, Vista Del Rev, near Corpo Plaza.
          Quest: save the Corpo(Nigel Hamilton) from cops or fuck off.
          Some Intelligence and Cool checks on the dialogue lines.
          Intelligence asks for truth, Nigel tells us about cops asking about a hooker, and her Virtu, and, when he is unable to answer their questions, coppers beat him to the pulp.
          Cool is mostly about eddies.
