Tarkington Brown was a man who worked in the New York City mayor's office. He found out that he was terminally ill and that he only had a few weeks to live. He wanted to make a lasting contribution to society before he did, so he recruited a number of police officers to form a "murder squad." He organized this group and sent them to kill criminals.
