He's just taking after Marvin Harrison... Marvin shoots everyone in brewery town and gets away with it. He's constantly shooting people here in philly. He's a maniac.

Anything to get an arrest under the stiff belt of the militarized police complex. Let's all play round-up. Round 'em up, get yer accolades. You did your job DOG. Kudos. Kudos! I am so impressed with our loss of freedom.
