Justin Hurst is a member of Free America and one of the most popular and influential deejays on the Voice of America. Hurst is the son of a high-ranking member of the Justice Department, but he defied his family to join the resistance. Now he launches daring broadcasts from all around his country using disposable "radio bombs" that transmit prerecorded speeches and other programming. While not the greatest fighter, Justin has even gone on a few terrorist raids to bring the people his first-hand accounts of "freedom in the making."
