- "Help! They're executing people up on that rooftop."
- — The unnamed man speaking to Cole.
Cole immediately heads to the rooftop to save the hostages the Militia were shooting off. He defeats the Militia and, with that, saves all the prisoners.
This is one of the easiest side missions, as all you need to do is climb the very tall building and defeat the Militia. You can defeat them any way, but the simplest way you can do it is just by knocking them off the building using Cole's shockwave. Just make sure you don't accidentally hit any of the hostages!
Upon completion, Cole receives 100 XP and slightly reduces enemy activity in New Marais. Also, he becomes a bit more heroic. Completing this mission also locks out the evil side mission "King of the Hill."
