Background[]

Story[]

He meets Cody Bell, the leader of the Pink Posse as an LGBT vigilante group, whom is giving the suggestion to "fight back" at a meeting hosted by Melanie Marcus and Ben Bruckner in responses to Darren's bashing, and future preventative action. At first, regarding Justin as Meg Ryan in underestimation, Justin makes his statement and gains Cody's respect as well as others at the table.

With nothing really offensively happening, Justin and Cody provoke them by homosexual behavior in the normal streets of Pittsburgh. They attack this white male whom says something that triggers Justin. Another day, they do the same to this straight couple which they make homophobic remarks and they intimidate them with a gun and make them apologize. Despite Brian's warnings, Justin continues to associate himself with the group. Justin cuts his hair to fit the profile of a Pink Posse member.

Cody take Justin to a gun range. He tells him the key he uses to get a bull's eye on the target: Imagining the people that abused him when he was younger. Justin shoot a bull's eye on the target and Cody wonder's who he thought of when shooting. When they take the target home, he asks who he was thinking about and Daphne mentions Chris Hobbs and what happened in high school. Later, Cody find out he works at a construction site.

Cody take Justin to the construction to confront him. They briefly encounter him and he mocks them both calling them "faggots" before he walks off back to work. They stand there unsure how to approach him. They approach him once more went he is home from work and Cody demands that he apologize to him for bashing him two years ago. Chris mocks and refuses. Angrily, Justin pulls out Cody's gun and shouts, "Don't fuck with me!" Justin make him get on his knees, apologize and suck the pistol. Just when he was about to consider pulling the trigger, possibly killing Hobbs, he tells him to get up and go inside and not call the police saying the a few homosexuals didn't pull the trigger.
