No Florida tag?

If only it were 1945 they'd have gotten away with it.

Better not to spoil the German illusion, I would guess.

Wonder what they thought the police had on them.  I have to assume that they thought they had warrants or something.

Strangely I've never seen that movie but she is also in Kalifornia which is both brilliant and disturbing. And then What's eating Gilbert Grape.  All three were early on it the gigantic careers of the males involved and yet she remained not a superstar.  What's with her choice in odd movies and why not the big bucks?

Current Resident: Why did they shoot a dead officer?


My guess? Drug related stuff.

The cop busts them with drugs while they're high, so they light him up and take off. They get home, sober up a bit, and realize what they've done, then kill themselves because it's much better to kill yourself than to face the American legal system. At least, if you're not rich.

And that's why the war on drugs is so freaking awful. I'm not saying that's what factually DID happen, but it's very likely. The fact that such a horrible scenario is likely is why the law needs reform.

So a couple of under 20 somethings shot a cop for unknown reasons, then killed themselves? Yeah,,, That's what kids are doing these days,, let's run with that. Did the cop try to taze one of them for no reason? Did the cop try to rape the dudes girlfriend after tazing the dude for no reason? Did the cop show up and catch them farking and try to taze them both? Did the cop show up while they we're smoking a joint? Did the cop show up and catch one of them throwing a cigarette on the ground and taze them? No,, Let's just say a cop was viciously killed in cold blood by a couple of young people in the prime of their life, because they had a suicide pact to kill the first cop they saw before they offed themselves. Yeah, that works.

Probably because she's horrible and ruins every movie she's in. It kind of works in Kalifornia because she plays a borderline retard. And then she plays a full retard in another movie.

You never go full retard.

If by better; you mean grossly skewed to favor the blonde British girl; then, yes, that article is better. It seems not to have occurred to anyone that she shot the police officer with a single shot .410; the road goes on forever and the party never ends.

Shot dead is standard newspaper-speak. Makes a shorter compound verb than "shot to death." Used on the west side of the pond as well.

Maybe.  I guess she has always played that slightly dull sounding character.  Are there any movies where she doesn't act like she has downed too many sleeping pills or is it the one trick she has?

That is a terrible waste of a hot British teenager, stupid bad American boyfriend (until further evidence arises, I'm going to make the very sound deduction that it was his gun and his stupid decision-making here). I know you were 18 and your brain hadn't finished baking yet, but still. BAD!

Fark you. Lewis was great in Cape Fear, California, NBK, Grape, and Too young to die. She shoulda won an AA for Too Young to Die. She wasn't as good in Strange days but she didn't Ruin it. Her farking hips made that movie watchable. People hate her because she did the retard movie.

iheartscotch: the blonde British girl


But you notice all the drugs, the fact they were previously arrested a short time ago for having a legal substance (marijuana) in a state with retarded laws.

Basically, they were gettin' high, the cops busted them for a second time, and then everyone wound up dead.

In a decent legal system, the cops would find them with marjuana and offer them advice on where to pick up funyuns.

I know that. But they should've realized that "shot dead police officer" would look goofy. If they wanted to insist on that particular idiom, they could've used "shot police officer dead".

I'll bet the "man and a woman" in the second sentence were supposed to be the people who found the dead cop, but it sounds like they're the ones who shot him.

The sentence is syntactically correct, but semantically, it's a mess.

Some people make movies for the movies themselves. You might consider them 'odd', but these may be the roles for her where she truly got to define a character. I know I sure as shiat wouldn't want her as a mainstream actress, I LIKE that she's in just the kind of movies she's in. Besides, she's under no obligation to us to make "normal" movies. Hell, George Clooney does foreign coffee commercials to pay the bills so that he can have his time and money free to be in more Indie movies... If they don't do well, he still has an income.

Also, I think Juliette Lewis has been spending more time with her band...

I went to both middle and high school in Orange County and have always had a healthy distrust of the OCPD.  This distrust was, in my opinion, validated, when officers killed my friend's younger brother, Eric May.

He was armed with a fork and officers at the scene chose to shoot him to death rather than use the less than lethal alternatives they were equipped with.

Anyhow, to get back to the story at hand, does it seem strange to anyone else that suspects in the past three OCPD officers killings have all decided to commit suicide by self inflicted gunshot wounds immediately after?

Officer Robert German, Killed 03/2014 - Suspects Brandon Goode (17) and Alexandria Hollinghurst (18) are believed to have commited suicide.

Officer Jonathan Scott Pine, Killed 02/2014 - Suspect Benjamin Holtermann (28) shot himself in the head. A 9mm handgun was found near his body.

Officer Brandon Coates, killed 12/2010 - Suspect Brandon Lyles (29) committed suicide about 30 minutes later after being cornered near his parents' Orlando home.

While these suspects were all likely guilty of attempted murder is it OK execute them without a trial (if that indeed is whats going on in Orange County)?

Scarier thought, a cop killed German, then killed the kids to pin it on.  I get the suspicious thoughts, but it sucks to have no real proof ourselves to really say.
