|8 Street Soldiers|
A crime syndicate hired a team of shadowrunners to embarrass a street gang in a false flag firefight over internal politics.
The Grass Sandal and the Red Pole of the Black Chrysanthemum in San Francisco are in disagreement over offering an alliance to the local chapter of the Cutters, though the Vanguard (who outranks them both) is in charge of making that decision. The Red Pole, who is the military commander of the triad, believes the Cutters are in a strong position and respects their businesslike demeanor. The Grass Sandal, who serves as the face of the triad and acts as a liaison to outside resources, knows the Cutters are currently in a politically charged situation in the sprawl, as they're on the verge of war with the Chulos, and they're already at war with the Ancients, who are allied with the First Nation. The Cutters may be strong in numbers and firepower in San Francisco compared to these other gangs, but the Grass Sandal does not think it is wise to extend an offer of alliance when their enemies are so many and they are likely to anger so many gangs at once, which would be a resource sink in a time during which they are still recovering from their war with the Smoke Circle Society. The Vanguard is going to meet with the two soon, and the Grass Sandal would like the Cutters embarrassed in some way that will reflect poorly on their candidacy without being traced back to him.
