|Pressure from Detroit, Toledo and Flint|
|Howell attacked Capiche and Amish lands. Did not attack Benicio but he is territorial and stepped in on the side of Capiche and Amish|
|Capiche is the hub of the wheel connecting Benicio and the Amish lands.|
Think of Benicio as a world-class executive. Many of them are sociopaths. They are also smart enough to realize they need "gloves", i.e. underlings, to present an empathetic, human face to their decisions.
Also consider that nobody in Capiche knows what Benicio did with the prisoners. They are wondering, though, why Benicio wants more than a thousand mortar rounds. That seems excessive.
