Death Wish 3

That's Charley and me in World War II.
I knew Charley 40 years.
He met you during the Korean War?
Yeah. I was a conscientious objector.
He didn't agree with that.
But we got along all right.

In fact, we got to be very good friends.
Kept in touch with one another
over the years.

We lived a few blocks from here.
When my wife died, I moved over here.

This was a good neighborhood
until it changed.

I got a letter from Charley a few days ago.
He was really scared.

- They didn't like him, so they killed him.
- Who killed Charley?

The creeps on the street.
He wouldn't take their lip or pay them.

He said he was gonna
do something about it.

Pay? Like in protection?
Protection, robbery, theft.
Your money or your life.

They hit the old people up here.
What goes on out there is a disgrace.
Now wait a minute. Who killed Charley?
I'll show you.
Those three. I saw them running away
when Charley got killed.

- Their faces are painted.
- They belong to the same gang.

We got hell here. You see, it's their turf.
- See him?
- Yeah.

What about him?
He runs the gang. He's the worst.
He's been away. I don't know where.
Looks like you could just go up
and smash him in the face, doesn't it?

Well, it can't be done.
What do you mean?
He's got guys watching him.
I saw a guy try to reach him once.
