These last two issues could have been about the dangers and effects of bullying but instead it wandered into a typical action strip - of which I'm still trying to wrap my head around this new Sons of the Serpent stuff.
The SotS's plan was to false arrest some guy, so that they could get him into court so that they could kill him (not forgetting that they had to spend ages successfully infiltrating both the courts and the NYPD in unbelievable numbers) and then they had to arrange/hope that a black man would be in the area so that they could frame him for the shooting AND for igniting a bomb in order to start a race war.
Color it up any way you want - that's a pretty fucking amazing/stupid plan that only worked because Waid wanted it to. And now the Sons of the Serpent are talking on ol' green-skin n Hulk.
For an organization that has been led by communists, demons (and a black man) - why would even the worst bigot ever join up?
I think the idea is that the Serpents were inside the Justice System anyway, not just for this case.
