    Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    I kind of agree on the one hand, but I'd like more info on just what the kid was doing and the circumstance of them shooting him as he fled. Was he threatening anyone with the gun, did he act like he was going to shoot them?

    Random Thought Thread

    Didn't realize until now that Victor Garber (currently playing Dr. Martin Stein on Legends of Tomorrow, also used to play the main character's father on Alias) used to do musicals and played Jesus in Godspell and John Wilkes Booth in Assassins. Just looked up a couple of videos of him singing back in the day on youtube.
