Killing Floor [HOT]
For most of the last hundred years, Biloxi was known for its beaches, resorts, and seafood industry. But it had a darker side. It was also notorious for corruption and vice, everything from gambling, prostitution, bootleg liquor, and drugs to contract killings. The vice was controlled by small cabal of mobsters, many of them rumored to be members of the Dixie Mafia. Keith Rudy and Hugh Malco grew up in Biloxi in the sixties and were childhood friends, as well as Little League all-stars.
Frank finds menial work at the stockyards on the killing floor where the animals are slaughtered, cut, and packaged. Courted by union members, Frank becomes convinced that unionization is the only way to an eight hour day, a better wage, and opportunities for his fellow African Americans who continue to arrive from the South. He fights tirelessly to convince the other black workers to follow him with limited success.
In THE KILLING FLOOR, two lifelong friends, Frank Custer and Thomas Joshua, leave their families behind in Mississippi to find work and a better life in Chicago in 1917. Arriving in "the promised land," the two eventually find work in the Chicago stockyards, where they find that the racism they hoped they left behind in Mississippi is just as prevalent, compounded by labor disputes and unsteady work in dangerous conditions. While Joshua opts instead to join the Army and fight in World War I, Custer sticks it out, hoping to save enough to bring his wife (Alfre Woodard) and family up to Chicago. When a coworker asks him to get involved with the meatcutter's union, Custer is skeptical at first, believing that unions are just another way for white people to keep African Americans down. But after listening to inspiring speeches during a union meeting, Frank is convinced that organized labor is the way to transcend segregation and improve working conditions for all workers. Despite facing intense skepticism from fellow African American coworkers, including "Heavy" (Moses Gunn), who fervently believes that the union won't look out for Black workers when they need their help the most, Custer begins to convince more and more African Americans to join. However, tensions only escalate after World War I ends, and the white men who fought in the war expect to get their jobs back, and the bosses of the meatpacking industry find new ways to continue a "divide and conquer" strategy based on racism and ethnic discrimination among its workers in order to keep a labor pool always willing to work for less. This culminates into what would become known as "The Chicago Race Riot of 1919," and as Joshua advocates fighting on the streets in retaliation for whites burning down their neighborhood and killing of African American men, women, and children, Custer wants to believe that a union that preached universal brotherhood will still look out for his interests, especially now, as he's unable to work in the stockyards because he can no longer safely walk through white neighborhoods to get there.
I slid slowly out of the booth and extended my wrists to the officer with the revolver. I wasn't going to lie on the floor. Not for these country boys. Not if they brought along their whole police department with howitzers.

Finding the criminals gone, they spring Finlay from captivity in the police station and set it on fire, before locating the hostages at Kliner's warehouse. Reacher kills a dirty cop named Baker, kills Teale and Kliner, and Finlay sets fire to the rest of the money. A wounded Picard shows up and beats Reacher down, but Finlay distracts him long enough for Reacher to kill him. The group then escapes as the warehouse explodes.
