Crime Story: Raoul feels betrayed. After getting out of prison, he starts his mission - and becomes the most wanted man in England

Thursday 1 July 2010, 10.55am, Durham Prison, Northern England. Before the prison authorities release Raoul Moat on this clear, sunny morning, they warn the police in Newcastle upon Tyne, Moat's hometown near the Scottish border: the man who has just been released poses an acute danger to his ex-girlfriend Samantha S.! He explained his “mission” to a fellow prisoner and a prison guard. He's going to get a gun, shoot Sam, shoot her new guy, shoot her mother because she tried to break him and Sam up, he's going to shoot the social worker who shit on him and took his kids, the psychiatrist who... wrote a negative report about him. And after he's done all that, he'll aim at the cops until they knock him over the head. You'd better watch out!
