Petty thief Louis “Lou” Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) is caught stealing from a Los Angeles construction site by a security guard. He attacks the guard, steals his watch and leaves with the stolen material. After selling the material at a scrap yard, Lou asks for a job, but the foreman says he does not hire thieves. While driving home, Lou sees a car crash and pulls over. Stringers—freelance photojournalists—arrive and record two police officers pulling a woman from the wreck. One of the stringers, Joe Loder (Bill Paxton), tells Lou that they sell their footage to local news stations. 更多介绍…
1、What are you doing out here?
3、This is a restricted area.
4、Oh, I didn’t know that. There’s no signs.
6、Let’s see some ID.
8、There’s a broken gate back there, and you’re trespassing.
9、Excuse me, sir, that gate was open
10、and I was under the opinion that this was a detour.
11、Let me see the ID. Take it out.
12、What kind of uniform is that?
13、I’ll ask the fucking questions.
14、It’s a private outfit, huh?
15、I tried to get one of those jobs. I like guarding things.
17、Here you go, sir.
18、I think what must have happened
19、is I just must have gotten turned around.
20、Is it in the high-end or the low-end range?
21、Oh, there’s no question it’s up!
22、Yes, but 20%?
23、Foreclosure, foreclosure, foreclosure!
24、We’re talking about over two-thirds of the market,
25、and, of course, it’s linked to unemployment.
26、So, the opportunity for the average
27、investor with the right know-how…
28、Is all in the book. In the seminars.
29、Very little doubt?
30、Yes, their distress sales makes them want them off the books.
31、They need to sell them. They have to, right?
32、…you name it, we teach them all.
34、that I have about 50 pounds of copper wire,
35、100 pounds of chain-link fence
36、and two manhole covers. The nice thick ones.
37、I’ll give 50 cents a pound for the wire,
38、15 for the fence, and 10 for the covers.
39、That’s below market value.
41、You know the cops came by asking about manhole covers?
42、I’d like to counter at a dollar a pound for the copper,
43、30 cents a pound for the fence,
44、and 20 cents per for the covers.
45、Ah, sell them somewhere else.
46、I’d feel good at 75, 25, and 15.
47、I’m not negotiating with you.
48、- I think we’re close. – I’m done.
49、I’m willing to take less to establish a business relationship.
50、If that’s your last best offer, then I guess I accept.（更多，甚至整个剧本阅读请点击下面链接。）
51、All right. Drive around back and unload them.
52、Excuse me, sir?
53、I’m looking for a job.
54、In fact, I’ve made up my mind
55、to find a career that I can learn and grow into.
56、Who am I? I’m a hard-worker, I set high goals
57、and I’ve been told that I am persistent.
58、Now, I’m not fooling myself, sir.
59、Having been raised with the self-esteem movement
60、so popular in schools,
61、I used to expect my needs to be considered.
62、But I know that today’s work culture
63、no longer caters to the job loyalty that
64、could be promised to earlier generations.
65、What I believe, sir, is that good things
66、come to those who work their asses off.
67、And that people such as yourself,
68、who reach the top of the mountain, didn’t just fall there.
69、My motto is if you wanna win the lottery,
70、you have to make the money to buy a ticket.
71、Did I say that I worked in a garage?
72、So, what do you say? I could start tomorrow, or why not tonight?
74、How about an internship then?
75、A lot of young people are taking
76、unpaid positions to get a foot in the door.
77、That’s something I’d be willing to do.
78、I’m not hiring a fucking thief.
79、This thing’s gonna blow!
80、Crap! Gotta move!
82、This thing is not budging. Hold on.
83、I can’t move!
84、Let’s go. Let’s go!
87、No shit! Get a shot on the other side!
88、All right, all right.
89、Get a shot inside the car.
90、Go around. Get inside the car.
91、The fuck am I paying you for?
92、Yeah, it’s free.
93、Get back, Loder. Get back!
94、I’m back, I’m back, I’m back!
95、All units. EMS, just past exit 31.
97、Will this be on television?
98、Morning news. If it bleeds, it leads.
100、Whoever pays the most.
101、What do you get for something like this?
102、Not nearly enough.
103、Enough to buy all that gear.
104、Let me tell you something.
105、It’s a flaming asshole of a job.
106、Can I ask you, are you currently hiring?
108、Well, thank you for taking the time
109、to discuss what you do.
110、You’ve been very helpful.
111、Any Compton unit, Code Three response needed.
112、211 in progress. 239 Rose Crest.
113、Hey, we got a 211 on Rose Crest.
114、Hurry your ass!
116、There was another drive-by shooting today downtown…
117、You’re entitled to fear and adequate compensation.
118、We’ll fight for you.
120、Okay, I give up. Potatoes!
121、Any family would agree.
122、Bird’s Eye turns vegetables you want to serve
123、into vegetables they want to eat.
125、Now, dinner is complete.

150、managed to escape with her life,
151、thanks to the bravery of a couple of CHP officers.
152、The crash started a fire that then
153、quickly consumed the entire vehicle.
154、And as we see in this dramatic video,
155、CHP officers Mike Tilly and John Wall
156、risked their lives to save the single mom.
157、Flores was then transferred to St. Joseph’s Hospital
158、in serious but stable condition
159、after suffering smoke inhalation.
160、I don’t know. I’ll give you $500.
161、This is a custom racing bicycle, sir.
162、Designed for competitive road cycling.
163、This bike has a light-weight,

167、It also has micro-shifters and 37 gears,
168、and weighs under six pounds.
169、I won the Tour de Mexico on this bike.
170、$700 is as high as I’ll go.
171、It cost me over $8,000 new.
173、$2,500, and that’s giving it away.

199、I said turn around and leave.
200、I’m fairly certain I’m allowed to film this.
202、I don’t know. What’s happening?
203、Walk away, or get arrested for obstruction.
205、Hurry up. Get out of here.
206、Blow, blow, blow. Almost. Almost.

217、We got it. Strap it on the other side.
218、- You got a dressing on it? – Yeah.

229、Get back. You. Get back.
230、Get the fuck back now.
232、Shit. All right.
233、Get back, 100 feet back, now.
234、You get back, too. 100 feet.
235、Fucking asshole, you shut it down.
236、I had a great fucking angle back there until you crowded in.
237、Get the fuck home. There’s people trying to do their fucking job.
239、Yeah. It’s Ace Video. Your lead’s gonna be at First and Western.
240、Yeah, you wanna get there. It’s a shooting.
241、Yeah, I got some great footage of a victim being treated.
242、No, the LAPD hasn’t released it
243、but a manager at a Walgreens says
244、it’s a carjacking and the victim is the owner.
245、He’s Asian and critical.
247、Look, I got a 60-second cut
248、with the manager and a neighbor.
250、Then, make me a deal. $400.
251、$300. All right, deal.
252、Are you fucking kidding me?
253、Get out of here.
254、Okay, dip into graphics.
255、I don’t think that’s going to cover it.
256、Frank, it’s not my call.
257、Oh, excuse me.
258、Excuse me. I have video footage.
259、Uh, down the hall, to the right.
260、- Right here. – Okay.
261、Put the neighbor here, and the kids with their mother by the door.
262、- You can get it back from 2:16. – Yeah.
263、Then I want to lay in some nat-sound.
264、Let’s loop the neighbor’s dog barking.
265、And then try taking the crying kid from B-roll
266、and dropping that in the background.
268、You my fill-in operator?
269、I don’t think so. I’m Lou Bloom.
270、I have some footage for sale.
272、- What? – Who do you work for?
273、At the moment, I work for myself.
274、See Frank out there, the way you came.
275、Uh, what’s it timed to?
277、What do you have?
278、Something I’m fairly certain
279、you’ll be very excited about.
280、What is it?
281、It’s a shooting. A man was shot. Several times, in fact.
282、He’s lying on the ground, and he’s bleeding on the ground.
283、I’d be surprised if he survived, honestly.
284、He was shot during a carjacking.
285、Western and First?
286、Yes, that’s right.
287、We’re getting that from Ace.
288、I was there. I was much closer to what happened.
290、Let’s see it.
291、You can fast forward through this.
292、Keep going, keep going.
293、Walk away, or I’ll arrest you for…
294、A minute-and-a-half in.
297、I need you to see something.
298、- Yeah? – Lou Bloom.
299、Frank Kruse, our assignment editor.
300、Play it back.
301、I got no pulse, here.
302、That’s the lead.
303、I want to break it up and do a wrap-around from the scene.
304、I want a walking stand-up, teaser at five, repeat on the half
305、and I want the copy to start with a warning.
306、You’re going to show this?
307、- With a warning. – It’s excessive.
308、We should have packages like this every day.
309、People are eating breakfast.
310、And they’ll talk about it at work.
311、Tie it in with the carjacking last month in Glendale.
312、And the other one, the van in Palms. When was that? In March?
314、It’s a carjacking crime wave.
315、That’s the banner.
316、Call the victim’s family, get a quote, mic it.
317、You know what to do.
320、I’m selling this particular piece for $1,000.
321、Not even close.
322、This late, you have nowhere else to go.
323、And the quality’s for shit.
324、I’ll give you $250, that’s the most I’ll do.
325、Now, let’s get you paid.
326、Here you go.
327、Buy yourself some better equipment, a directional mic,
328、and get interviews when you can.
329、You have a good eye.
331、I’m just beginning, so praise from someone such as yourself,
332、well, you can imagine that it means quite a lot.
333、I’ll help in anyway I can.
334、And, of course, you can help me by calling us first.
335、I want you to contact me when you have something.
336、- Something like this. – That’s right.
338、Well, that’s only part of it. We like crime.
339、Not all crime.
340、Carjacking in Compton, for example.
341、That isn’t news, now is it?
342、We find our viewers are more interested
343、in urban crime creeping into the suburbs.
344、What that means is a victim, or victims,
345、preferably well-off and white,
346、injured at the hands of the poor or a minority.
348、No. Accidents play.
349、Cars, busses, trains, planes. Fires.
352、The best and clearest way
353、that I can phrase it to you, Lou,
354、to capture the spirit of what we air,
355、is think of our newscast as a screaming woman
356、running down the street with her throat cut.
358、I’m a very, very quick learner.
359、You will be seeing me again.
360、I believe you.

370、when 68-year-old Richard Cho of Mar Vista
371、was walking towards his car

376、The vicious tragedy and senselessness of the brutal shooting
377、as well as the victim’s final moments
378、were all caught in graphic video

381、Paramedics worked feverishly to save the life of Richard Cho.
382、But despite heroic efforts, the husband and father of three,
383、was pronounced dead at Good Samaritan Hospital.
384、Alarmingly, this is the third violent carjacking
385、in the area in recent months.
386、And residents here are growing concerned

403、The situation is that I lost an employee,
404、and I’m interviewing for a replacement.
405、Okay. The ad didn’t say what the job was.
406、It’s a fine opportunity
407、for some lucky someone.
409、I’d like to know about your prior employment
410、and hear, in your own words,
411、what you learned from each position.
412、My Old jobs?
413、I did landscaping for a couple months.
414、Like, mow, blow, and go.

417、I don’t know.

447、Maybe you saw my item this morning
448、of a fatal carjacking.
449、No. I don’t have a TV, but that sounds cool.
450、Do you have a cellphone?
452、Does it have GPS?
453、Yes, it does.
454、Congratulations. You’re hired.
456、Your job will be to listen to the emergency radio,
457、learn police codes, help navigate, and watch the car.
459、And what does it pay?
460、It’s an internship.
461、Man, I, uh…
462、I can’t do that. I need money.
463、I’m giving you a chance
464、to explore career options
465、and get insight into my organization.
466、It’s not at all unusual for me
467、to make full-time job offers to my interns.
468、No, I know.
469、I got to get paid,
470、like, something at least, you know.

529、I bet I wasted five dollars of gas just getting here
530、or don’t you think that’s a lot of money?
532、I couldn’t see the screen, you were driving so fast.
533、Okay, first of all, Richard,
534、don’t answer me by telling me a problem.
535、I have enough of those already.
536、Bring me a solution, and then we can make a decision together.
537、Okay. Maybe if you didn’t rush me.
538、Don’t rush you. Okay.
539、I can use that.
540、See, Rick, they’ve done studies
541、and they found that in any system that relies on cooperation
542、from a school of fish,
543、say, or even a professional hockey team, for example,
544、these experts have identified communication
545、as the number one single key to success.
546、You know what “fear” stands for?
548、”False Evidence Appearing Real. ”
549、You’re going really fucking fast, dude.

552、Now, when you get a chance,
553、I’d like to know where we’re going.
554、Uh, left on Third. Six blocks.
555、Find a more appropriate place to park the car,
556、and don’t get blocked in.
557、Are you the one that made the call?
558、No, no. I think…
559、I was trying to go to sleep, and I heard a sound.
560、It scared me. That’s why I called.
561、Sir, what’s going on?
562、Who the fuck are you?
563、TV news. What happened?
564、It was a shooting.
565、I told the cops that he was waving a gun last week,

569、But this is for TV.
570、Yeah? I don’t have a TV.
572、Shot the place to shit.

574、…running out of there as fast as we could. Through that window there.
576、Oh, that’s fantastic.
577、Oh, that’s a great piece of tape.
578、You didn’t get an interview with the couple?
579、I have footage of them.
580、I have an interview with a neighbor.
581、She curses, but you can cut that out.
582、How did you get inside the house?
583、The door was open.
584、They allowed you?
585、I heard somebody yell to come in,
586、and when nobody was inside, I left.
587、And the only shot of the couple is through a window?
588、The police were shutting it down.
589、- I don’t like it. – Like what?
590、The footage looks like he broke in.
591、There’s no close-up of the homeowners
592、and he’s giving us their name
593、off a piece of private correspondence.
594、Excuse me, that’s junk mail.
595、Well, I have a problem with that.
596、We’ll knock out a killer package.
597、- This is my job. – No!
598、Your job is writing the tweet of the day.
599、And getting Deb to turn sideways
600、during the weather forecast.
601、We’re running it.
602、I like how you handled Frank.
603、You didn’t soften the truth or dilute it.
604、I think being clear with your objectives is more important
605、than trying to present your ideas
606、in a non-confrontational manner.
607、Do you have experience in an office?
608、Myself? Not presently, no.
609、Where did you get all that?
610、I study a lot online.
611、Yeah? Like what?
612、All sorts of things, actually.
613、I’m on my computer all day.
614、I haven’t had what you’d call much of a formal education,
615、but you can find most anything if you look hard enough.
616、Last year, I took an online business course, for example.
617、And I learned that you have to have a business plan
618、before starting a business.
619、And that why you pursue something
620、is equally as important as what you pursue.
621、The site advised you
622、to answer the following question
623、before you decide where to focus your abilities.
624、The question was
625、”What do I love to do?”
626、The site suggested making a list
627、of your strengths and weaknesses.
628、What am I good at?
629、What am I not good at?
630、Maybe I want to strengthen and develop knowledge
631、about the things I’m already good at.
632、Maybe I want to strengthen my weaknesses.
633、I recently remade my list.
634、And I’m thinking
635、that television news
636、might just be something I love
637、as well as something I happen to be good at.
638、On TV, it looks so real.
639、Yes. It does.
640、Well, I have a show to do.
641、Your check is at the desk.
642、Outstanding work, Lou. Really, just great.
643、Thanks, Nina. That means an awful lot.
645、It’s every parent’s nightmare.
646、Imagine singing a lullaby to your infant and tucking them into bed
647、and then having to shield them
648、as a barrage of high-caliber bullets
649、literally blast into your home.
650、For the Cahills of Echo Park,
651、that fear became a terrifying reality
652、when an adjacent house became the setting for a scene
653、right out of the Wild West.
655、Paying too much at the pump?
656、Well, sign up for our super saver card
657、and you’ll be saving buckets of duckets on every purchase.
658、Takes minutes to sign up
659、and you’ll start saving right away.
660、You’ll also be eligible for some sweet giveaways.
661、So sign up now and start saving!
662、Rick, I’m very pleased with how you progressed.
663、You’re doing a great job.
664、However, you just spilled gasoline on my car
665、which will eat the paint.
666、I need you tighten up a bit on this.
667、Because if you fill it like that again,
668、I will terminate you immediately,
669、I promise you.
670、”Bed, Bath & Beyond. ”
671、Oh, that’s a good store.
672、Making peace with what you don’t have,
673、that’s what it’s all about.
674、Living with what you ain’t got, right?
675、Don’t you think?
677、ambulance traffic, Benedict Canyon.
678、Overturned vehicle with injuries.
679、Crash with injuries. Good neighborhood.
680、TV news. What happened?
681、I think it was a head-on collision,
682、and there’s a guy who’s dead over there.
683、- There’s a woman… – Did you see what happened?
684、Am I supposed to help? I didn’t see, I came after.
685、Can you tell me exactly what happened?
686、Will you get the camera out of my face?
687、Get it out!
688、I’m trying to talk to 911!
689、No, it’s at… The guy is down.
690、Make some room! We’ll block it off.
691、Not getting through here.
692、Son of a bitch.
695、Here you go.
696、Ben Waterman wears the same gold tie on Fridays.
697、We’re leading with it.
698、That’s your third start this week.
699、I’m focusing on framing.
700、A proper frame not only draws the eye into a picture
701、but keeps it there longer,
702、dissolving the barrier
703、between the subject and the outside of the frame.
704、Is that blood on your shirt?
705、I don’t think so.
706、I recently heard of a Mexican restaurant
707、called Cabanita. Have you heard of it?
708、It’s also on your sleeve.
709、I didn’t see that.
710、What I’m asking is,
711、do you like Mexican food, Nina?
713、Stand by, people. Here we go.
714、Cabanita has been called
715、”an authentic taste of Mexico City. ”
716、Do you wanna go with me?
717、I think we could have fun together.
718、Thanks, but I’m busy.
719、Saturday is your night off, isn’t it?
720、I have a rule, Lou.
721、I don’t date people I work with.
722、And I’m twice your age.
723、I like older women.
724、Besides, I don’t work with you.
725、You’re someone I sell to.
726、And I don’t wanna fuck that up.
727、What if by saying no, you fuck it up?
728、All right, 10 seconds to go and back on.
729、Is that what you’re saying?
730、I didn’t say that.
731、Eight, seven, six, five…
732、Well, I don’t know what to say.
733、…three, two, one.
734、Good morning. Thank you for joining us. I’m Lisa Mays.
735、And I’m Ben Waterman.
736、First up on This Morning on KWLA News,
737、a horrible car crash over in Benedict Canyon.
738、It’s claimed the life now of one man.
739、Severely injured a young woman.
741、Hey, man. Joe Loder, Mayhem.
742、Great get tonight.
743、They were closing it down by the time we showed up.
744、Were you waiting for me out here?
745、No, I was driving by and I saw your car.
746、You’re not dropping your shit off, are you? Nobody does that.
747、You need an air card if you want to be in the game.
748、Import the video to your laptop.
749、Cut the video.
750、Upload to your FTP site
751、and notify stations you got something for sale.
752、Boom, boom, boom!
753、Otherwise, it’s a nice ride.
754、Listen, man, you got a good run going
755、but there’s valleys out there.
756、Take it from me. I’ve been nightcrawling for 14 years.
757、You heard I’m adding a second van?
758、No. I didn’t hear that.
759、Gonna be a game changer.
760、Cut my on-scene time in half.
761、I’m setting up a dedicated dispatch, too.
762、No more listening and driving. That’s for suckers.
763、You like the Canon 305s?
764、Never used one.
765、Six thou a piece.
766、2.4 megapixels. Night vision. 18:1 zoom.
767、I got one of those puppies with your name on it.
768、I have a camera.
769、I want you running my second van.
770、Two crews. Half the area to cover.
771、Now, I know what you’re thinking.
772、Half the money, right?
773、You should be thinking, twice the sales.
774、Because we’re going to be the first
775、at every scene.
776、Why compete when we can work together?
777、You can share my press cards.
778、Puppy dog off my police connections.
779、This is the big move, the next level.
780、We can corner this whole thing.
781、I’m talking about putting some heavy digits in our pocket, brah.
782、Thank you for offering me the position
783、but working for myself is more in line
784、with my skills and career goals.
785、Take a few days to think about it.
787、You’ll need to hire someone else,
788、and I don’t want to hold up the process.
789、You want to be on the inside of this, man
790、because I’m going to be tag-teaming every call.
791、You keep talking like it’s something
792、that I may be interested in, but I’m not.
793、You don’t even understand the offer.
794、If you did, you’d be fucking sucking my dick!
795、You’d be asking me questions.
796、What does this mean? What does that mean?
797、I feel like grabbing you by your ears right now
798、and screaming in your face,
799、”I’m not fucking interested. ”
800、Instead, I’m going to drive home and do some accounting.
803、I didn’t wake up until 5:00.
804、My body is so off, I feel like it’s time for breakfast.
805、I bet you’re beautiful any time of the day.
806、In fact, I’d say
807、you’re much prettier than Lisa Mays.
808、I like the dark makeup on your eyes.
809、I also like the way you smell.
810、So, where you from, Lou?
811、The north end of the Valley.
812、Some of the calls sometimes take me over there,
813、but nobody I know still lives out there.
814、You’re from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
815、How did you know that?
816、Everything about you is online.
817、Not everything, but definitely a lot.
818、I’ve watched all the videos from when you were a reporter.
819、I’m sure you look at those, of course.
820、No. God, no.
821、Not without a drink in my hand.
822、I watch my work all the time.
823、Yeah? Do you want to become a reporter?
825、Most of you guys want air time.
827、I want to be the guy that owns the station that owns the camera.
828、The business is going well,
829、but in order to grow to the next level,
830、I need to stay one step ahead of my competition
831、and take risks.
832、I also need financial support to implement expansion.
833、Would you like another margarita?
834、One is enough.
835、Thanks for coming out to talk.
836、The place I’m in now
837、is that I want a relationship
838、with someone I can team up with
839、and share, like we share, the same job and hours and whatnot.
840、I could go down a laundry list, but you get the idea.
842、Well, I hope you find someone.
843、Here’s the thing about that, Nina.
844、I’m quite certain I already have.
846、Let me put this politely.
847、I only came out to dinner with you, Lou,
848、purely as a professional courtesy.
850、I don’t think it’s any secret
851、that I’ve single-handedly raised
852、the unit price of your ratings book.
853、Our ratings book price? Whoa!
854、I’m a very fast learner.
855、We had a conversation where I specifically mentioned that.
856、Do you remember that?
857、Well, do you?
859、I recently learned, for instance,
860、that most Americans watch local news to stay informed.
861、I also learned that
862、the average half-hour of Los Angeles television news
863、packs all of its local government coverage
864、including law enforcement, budget, transportation,
865、education and immigration
866、into 22 seconds.
867、Local crime stories, however, not only usually led the news
868、but filled 14 times the broadcast,
869、averaging five minutes and seven seconds.
870、KWLA relies heavily on such stories.
871、With Los Angeles crime rates going down,
872、I think that makes items like mine particularly valuable.
873、Like rare animals.
874、I can only imagine that your needs will increase
875、during next month’s rating sweeps period.
877、Well, we certainly appreciate what you do.
878、There’s certain good things about being alone.
879、You have time to do the things you wanna do,
880、like study and plan,
881、but you can’t have dinners like this
882、or be physical with a person.
883、I mean, outside of flirtation-ship.
884、Where are you going with this?
885、I want that.
887、Like you want to keep your job and your health insurance.
888、Look, just for starters,
889、I don’t need you to keep my fucking job.
890、You’re the news director on the vampire shift
891、of the lowest-rated station in Los Angeles.
892、We have what could be considered an almost-exclusive relationship.
893、There are many other places I could go.
894、I have to think that you’re invested in this transaction.
895、Here you are.
896、- Enjoy. – Thank you.
897、Where did you get the balls to even suggest something like this?
898、We’re still talking.
899、No. There’s nothing more to say.
900、You can leave.
902、You’ve done well. Okay?
903、And we pay you well, very well. We always have.
904、If you like, I could get you an exclusive retainer.
905、That would be on top of your segment fees.
906、I could maybe even get you a job at the station
907、starting as a production assistant.
908、So that you could learn the business from the inside.
909、That’s where you said your interests lie.
910、You’re not listening, Nina.
911、I happen to know that you haven’t stayed at one station
912、for longer than two years at a time,
913、and you’re coming up on two years soon.
914、I can imagine
915、that your contract is for that length of time.
916、And that next month’s ratings
917、directly affect that.
918、So, you’re threatening that if I don’t…
920、You’re threatening to stop selling to me.
921、That’s your choice.
922、The true price of any item
923、is what somebody’s willing to pay for it.
924、You want something.
925、And I want you.
926、To fuck you.
927、And as a friend.
928、Jesus Christ, friends don’t pressure friends
929、to fucking sleep with them.
930、Actually, that’s not true, Nina.
931、Because as I’m sure you know,
932、a friend is a gift you give yourself.
933、Okay, a left on Roth,
934、and then six blocks to the ramp.
935、You’re putting me on the 5?
936、Yeah, the 2 to the 5 to the 110 to the 10.
937、Did you read my traffic memo yesterday?
938、Did I read it?
939、Yeah, I read it.
940、What did it say?
941、About the 5?
942、Okay. I looked at it. What?
943、Well, for one thing, it included that
944、the 5 has floating construction
945、in the fast lane for the next three weeks.
946、So, given that, I expect you to put me
947、on the 2 to the 101 to the 110 to the 10.
948、That’s half of one, six of the other.
949、It’s half dozen of one, six of the other.
950、What I’d like you to do is admit that
951、you didn’t read what you said you did.
952、You know I’m a reasonable person,
953、but nobody likes to be lied to!
954、Okay! When am I going to get my raise?
955、That’s reasonable, right?
956、You keep talking about this performance review.
957、When is it gonna happen?
958、I’ve been out here two months already,
959、busting my ass every night.
960、I’m tired of your promises for more pay, man.
961、I’m sleeping in a garage.
962、Rick, trying to leverage your salary
963、in this economic environment is near impossible.
964、Most firms have set starting wages.
965、Ideally, you could leverage with other offers,
966、but that’s just not the case
967、in your situation right now.
969、Engine 91. North division. Battalion 12.
970、Heavy rescue. 56.
971、Air ops respond. Reported plane down.
972、Whiteman Field, south of Foothill.
973、Reroute us to that.
974、We’re 22 minutes from Foothill,
975、and only five from a hit and run.
976、They’re rolling heavy rescue and an air ambulance.
977、Get me there, please.
978、It’s good right there. Stay on that spot.
979、Not getting through here.
980、Whoa, whoa, whoa. It’s all over here, buddy.
981、Turn it around, let’s go.
984、Five fatals. Come screaming out of the fucking sky.
985、All lit up with the brush on fire.
986、Mine. Exclusive. I’m banging!
987、And my other van is in Carson, getting the jumper.
989、I was trying to hook you up, man.
990、I was trying to teach you something.
991、Welcome to the future, brah.
992、A car crash.
993、Well, none of this is gonna knock anybody out.
994、I can’t use any of this in my rundown.
995、Is this it?
996、No, I have a stabbing in Corona.
997、Where’s the plane crash at Foothill?
998、I don’t mind saying that I’m trying to bring you stories
999、that happen here on the ground.
1000、Two has it. It’ll be their lead.
1001、Well, I hope that works well for them.
1002、Now, let me show you the stabbing in Corona.
1003、I don’t give a goddamn about fucking Corona!
1004、You know how important this week is.
1005、This shit is fucking death to me!
1006、I understand your frustration.
1007、I was just trying not to be too hard on myself.
1008、I sold you upstairs as some kind of fucking sweeps savior.
1009、And I’m leading with a goddamn stabbing.
1011、So, you want that, then?
1012、I want you to get in the goddamn game!
1013、I want something people can’t turn away from.
1014、I want what you fucking promised me!
1015、Good morning, everyone.
1016、Thanks for joining us. I’m Pat Harvey.
1017、Hope your day’s getting off to a good start. I’m Kent Shocknek.
1018、We begin with a tragedy last night
1019、in the foothills of Santa Susana Pass
1020、where a private plane crashed with no survivors.
1021、CBS2 has obtained this exclusive video.
1022、We want to remind you now
1023、that what you’re about to see is graphic,
1024、and viewer discretion is advised.
1025、Since when did Goldwater become faster than Laurel?
1026、What was the thinking there?
1027、I didn’t ask that to hear myself speak.
1028、Because, you know, Goldwater only has six lights.
1029、Laurel has places to pass.
1030、I can’t get around this person until Ventura.
1031、It’s the same argument, man. I said this route.
1032、If you wanted to take Laurel,
1033、you should have said something.
1034、I thought that you worked in other factors.
1035、If I didn’t think that you could do better,
1036、I wouldn’t ride you so hard about the routes.
1037、I think you know that, Rick.
1038、I think it may just be possible
1039、that I have a higher opinion of you than you have of yourself.
1040、What the fuck?
1041、God damn it!
1043、To get to a van crash on Moorpark?
1044、Who cares? What’s the rush?
1045、Why aren’t we at the rape at Griffith Park like everybody else?
1046、Oh, fuck! Oh, fuck me.
1047、Oh, God! That’s the fucking Mayhem van.
1048、Joe Loder and the other dude.
1049、What’s his name? Fucking Marcus.
1050、Park the car and get your camera.
1051、Now, let’s get one guy inside. Hold the seats back.
1052、You can’t get that in right there?
1053、No, there’s no room.
1054、Here we go.
1055、What the hell happened?
1056、According to witnesses, they were driving at a high rate of speed,
1057、probably toward Griffith Park,
1058、when, apparently, they ran head-on into this light pole.
1059、No other car. Single vehicle.
1060、How did they just run into a pole?
1061、Get that backboard right up against him.
1063、Hey, don’t film that, man. He’s one of us.
1064、Not anymore, Rick.
1066、He’s a sale.
1067、Got facial trauma. Got lacerations all the way down…
1068、Yeah, I’m calling it in.
1069、Minimize that movement.
1070、Get him back in the ambulance and put some oxygen on him.
1071、- Drop him down. – Keep pressure on him.
1072、Back that unit off.
1073、Yeah, let’s get some four-by-fours on there.
1074、Bring the gurney all the way up.
1075、Come on, let’s go.
1076、Stay with me.
1077、I got him, I got him.
1078、- Make sure you size him right. – All right.
1079、Man, we are way the hell out here.
1080、Any Mission unit.
1081、Residential 211 in progress.
1082、37 Bonhill Road.
1083、Receiving 211 siren activation.
1084、Armed response on a home invasion.
1085、We’re five blocks away. Pull a U-turn.
1086、At the end of the street. Coming up.
1088、We beat the police.
1089、- What do you want me to do? – You know what to do, Rick!
1090、3- X-21. Go ahead.
1091、3- X-21, confirm address
1092、on the 211 at Bonhill Road.
1093、What is going on?
1094、- We’re leaving. – What?
1095、What’s in there? What’s going on?
1096、What happened in there?
1097、You should have walked in and looked, Rick,
1098、if you’re that curious.
1099、That’s what I’m paying you to do.
1100、You need to show initiative.
1101、There is no better way to achieve job security
1102、than by making yourself an indispensable employee.
1103、I heard gunshots!
1104、All the more reason you might have helped me.
1105、You might have learned a new skill that made you more useful
1106、and put us on a track toward growth!
1107、Stay in the car.
1108、- Why? – Because I said so.
1109、We have a hit-and-run in Beverly Hills,
1110、a car versus pedestrian incident and a robbery.
1111、Do we have footage of the crash?
1113、I’ve been trying to reach you for the last hour.
1114、In the future, when you don’t have anything,
1115、man up and don’t dodge my fucking calls.
1116、I do have something.
1118、Home invasion, triple murder in Granada Hills.
1119、That’s just breaking now.
1120、We got there before the police.
1121、You have it?
1122、I’m not going to list the many benefits of this piece.
1123、I think it’s probably best if you just watch it for yourself.
1124、I could have had someone out there by now.
1125、Why didn’t you call it in?
1126、To increase your need, and improve my bargaining position.
1127、Frank, Jenny! Bay 2, now!
1128、Get Linda in here.
1129、Home invasion in Granada.
1130、He got there before the cops.
1131、We have 10 minutes to airtime.
1132、How much of this can we show?
1133、You mean, legally?
1134、No, morally. Of course, legally.
1135、Have they been identified?
1136、It just happened, so you have to assume no,
1137、and that’s just one of the issues.
1138、We can’t broadcast their identities
1139、without notifying the next of kin.
1140、We’re not identifying them.
1141、You are by proxy, by showing their faces.
1142、We pixelate the faces.
1143、Where did you get this?
1145、Hi, Linda. I’m Lou.
1146、Jesus. Is there a dead baby inside of there?
1147、No. The crib was empty.
1148、Oh, for Christ’s sake.
1149、Are we breaking the law by showing this?
1150、Block the faces, don’t give out the exact address.
1151、Do that, I guess. I don’t know.
1152、I wouldn’t think so, no.
1153、Journalistically and ethically?
1154、This isn’t Hartford.
1155、We are beyond all broadcast standards.
1156、Have you seen the overnights?
1157、I’ll risk the fine.
1158、What did you pay for this?
1159、The price hasn’t been negotiated yet.
1160、Give us a minute.
1162、- How much? – $100,000.
1163、- How much? – $50,000.
1164、I need a number. Nine minutes. I need a number.
1165、I just gave you two.
1167、I got $3,000 for the food truck stabbings.
1168、There were more dead.
1169、Those were poor Mexican people in a roach coach.
1170、Two of them were illegals.
1171、These are three wealthy white people,
1172、shot and killed in their mansion.
1173、Including a suburban housewife shotgunned in her bed.
1174、I know you, Nina.
1175、I know your interest and excitement in this product
1176、is greater than the amount you’re offering.
1177、- $5,000. – $30,000.
1178、- $7,000. – $25,000.
1179、- $8,000. – $15,000.
1180、- $9,000. – $15,000.
1181、- $10,000. – $15,000.
1182、Give me a serious number.
1184、Can’t do it. Never happen. There’s a matter of precedent.
1185、Ten is my last best offer.
1188、Where are you going?
1189、Seven has approached me at least several times.
1190、The ND there gave me his number.
1191、They’ll make me a better offer. It’s a five-minute drive.
1195、I can’t spend a month’s budget on a single story.
1196、What if the story’s not over?
1197、The people who did this escaped.
1198、They’re still out there, walking around with the rest of us.
1199、If I had a family and I lived in a home, that might make me nervous.
1200、I’d want updates on what was going on.
1201、With this footage, people would turn to your channel for the story.
1202、I like you, Nina.
1203、And I look forward to our time together.
1204、But you have to understand.
1205、$15,000 isn’t all that I want.
1206、From here on, starting now,
1207、I want my work to be credited by the anchors and on a burn.
1208、The name of my company is
1209、Video Production News, a professional news-gathering service.
1210、That’s how it should be read
1211、and that’s how it should be said.
1212、I also want to go to the next rung, and meet your team.
1213、And the station manager and the director and the anchors.
1214、And start developing my own personal relationships.
1215、I’d like to start meeting them this morning.
1216、You’ll take me around, you’ll introduce me as the owner and President
1217、of Video Production News
1218、and remind them of some of my many other stories.
1219、I’m not done.
1220、I also want to stop our discussion over prices.
1221、This will save time.
1222、When I say that a particular number
1223、is my lowest price, that’s my lowest price.
1224、And you can be assured that I arrived
1225、at whatever that number is very carefully.
1226、Now, when I say that I want these things,
1227、I mean that I want them.
1228、And I don’t want to have to ask again.
1229、And the last thing that I want, Nina,
1230、is for you to do the things that I ask you to do
1231、when we’re alone together in your apartment.
1232、Not like the last time!
1234、I’ll tell you what.
1235、I have the van crash on Moorpark tonight.
1236、It was a couple of stringers, actually.
1237、That could lead by itself on an average night.
1238、I’d be willing to throw that in for free.
1239、So what do you say, do we have a deal?
1240、Lisa Mays, Ben Waterman, Lou Bloom.
1241、- Hi. – Hello. How are you, Lisa?
1242、You remember Lou from the Benedict Canyon crash.
1243、Oh, yeah. Amazing stuff.
1244、That was my company, Video Production News.
1245、I would just like to say
1246、that I think that what the two of you do is incredibly valuable.
1247、- Thank you. – That’s nice of you to say.
1248、We appreciate it.
1249、I don’t know how long
1250、this tape runs, we might dump out.
1251、Twenty seconds to back. Ben and Lisa, 20 seconds to back.
1252、Set up a sting dig, Camera Two on a two-shot.
1253、Where’s the banner?
1254、Did we decide on one?
1256、What did we talk about?
1257、Can you build that? Put it on CG-one.
1258、Back in 10 seconds.
1259、Nine, eight, seven, six,
1260、five, four, three,
1261、two, one. Sting it.
1262、Mics. Dissolve. Cue.
1263、Hello, everybody. This is KWLA with breaking news.
1264、Over the last half-hour or so,
1265、we’ve now received word of an apparent home invasion triple homicide
1266、in the Granada Hills area of the San Fernando Valley.
1267、Now, at present, the number of those dead…
1268、Preset Camera Two.
1269、…have not been confirmed yet by the police
1270、but KWLA has obtained exclusive footage
1271、from inside the crime scene
1272、in which at least three bodies can be observed.
1273、Now, we’re going to show you segments of that footage
1274、throughout the rest of this broadcast,
1275、but also throughout the day.
1276、Ben, Lisa, I have a tape. When you’re ready, throw to it.
1277、I’ll follow you.
1278、Again, we’re about to show you exclusive KWLA video
1279、from inside the actual crime scene.
1280、It’s graphic. Repeat it.
1281、And before broadcasting this video,
1282、we want to warn our viewers that these are extremely graphic images.
1283、And I’m hearing from our control room that we have that video,
1284、and we’re going to show it now.
1285、This is footage that we have obtained exclusively by KWLA
1286、from Video Production News.
1287、This is a professional news-gathering service.
1288、This is what appears to be a shotgun,
1289、something you might use for home defense.
1290、You can see the pistol grips
1291、on the front and the back there.
1292、Quite possibly the murder weapon.
1293、And now, Lisa, as we move inside, this is a beautiful home.
1294、A beautiful home in a very safe neighborhood.
1295、Or, what most people think is a safe neighborhood.
1296、It appears that that is the first body.
1297、A young woman, I’m guessing, from this angle.
1298、A young woman on a sofa, there.
1299、All of the faces, though, have been blurred out.
1300、They’ve escaped. They’re on the loose.
1301、That is the first of what we understand
1302、are three bodies in the home in Granada Hills.
1303、And this was committed by a suspect, or suspects
1304、who are still out there.
1305、They’re believed to have escaped.
1306、And if you think about that, that is a very frightening thought.
1308、Yes, scary, and very concerning,
1309、particularly given what we’re looking at here.
1310、The savagery of what these pictures show.
1311、And now, look, there on the floor.
1312、Lisa, what is that? A bloodied article of clothing?
1313、It looks like a silk shirt.
1314、Maybe a woman’s silk blouse.
1315、It’s just so sad.
1316、Stand by to dissolve, Two.
1317、And, obviously, there is the second body.
1318、- They’ve escaped. Repeat it. – The person or people
1319、who committed all of this brutal home invasion robbery,
1320、they’re presently unidentified and at large, still on the streets.
1321、Hit it again. Harder.
1322、This has got to be a huge worry
1323、not only to the residents in this neighborhood,
1324、the Granada Hills area as well.
1325、All of Los Angeles, if you think about it.
1326、Yeah, the entire South/and, really. Tonight, absolutely.
1327、An apparent family attacked, savagely killed.
1328、We believe this is their own home.
1329、In what is one of the quieter,
1330、I think a frankly more upscale and affluent neighborhoods
1331、in the whole Valley.
1332、In all of Los Angeles.
1333、And now, as we’re moving, this is a nursery.
1334、- And you hope to God… – Build it.
1335、…that there’s not a baby in that crib.
1336、Yeah, you’re just praying that that crib is empty.
1337、Because this is definitely a child’s room.
1338、And, now, as we look, thank goodness. Absolutely great.
1339、In fact, our understanding right now
1340、is that there was no baby found in the house.
1341、Or any baby that was seen at all
1342、by the people who filmed this for us.
1344、That’s Video News,
1345、this is a professional news-gathering service that we use.
1346、Apparently, what we’re hearing from their photographer
1347、is that they arrived even before the police did.
1348、And then entered this home to help,
1349、or at least offer some sort of assistance
1350、and then came upon what you’re looking at here.
1351、They came upon three bodies.
1352、And that, right there is the third body on the floor.
1353、This is a man, gray hair. What would you think, Lisa? Maybe 40s, 50s?
1354、Yeah, 50s. Maybe even 60s.
1355、”Vicious attack. ”
1356、We’ve been looking at all this graphic footage
1357、and just the viciousness, the severity of violence.
1358、Master control, we’re going to come to a break.
1359、We’re going to commercial, then cutting to Joel and a police statement.
1360、I’m getting word right now that police
1361、are getting ready to issue a statement
1362、from the scene and Joel Beatty is there for that.
1363、Right now, we’re going to take a quick break.
1364、Ready to break in five, four…
1365、Sneak in your music.
1366、Three, two, one.
1367、Fade to black. Roll your break.
1368、That’s a 10-share.
1369、I want theme music on the return,
1370、the cut we used for the Simi rail crash.
1371、Audio, cut 32, please. Cut 32 when we come back.
1373、Rolling with your banner.
1375、Actually, he’d like to meet you.
1376、Come back, One, and key on Ben.
1377、Hey, heads up, you guys. The police spokesman
1378、- is making an announcement in 60 seconds. – I gotta go.
1379、Nina, we are getting a ton of heat
1380、from the police out here about that video.
1381、Tell them to call the station.
1383、- They want to talk to the person who shot it. – I shot it.
1384、Joel, it’s Video Production News.
1385、Tell them to call me.
1386、Lou, they can’t hear you.
1387、Coming back in five,
1388、four, three, two, one.
1390、We have more information coming in from the Granada Hills area
1391、and the scene of an apparent home invasion
1392、that has left a husband and wife
1393、and their housekeeper…
1394、What we know at the moment is that
1395、at some time around 5:00 this morning,
1396、gunmen broke into this upscale…
1397、Residents are disturbed and concerned by the brutal triple murder…
1398、The way we got it, though, is a video production crew
1399、that we work with from time to time.
1400、They, apparently, arrived on the scene
1401、in Granada Hills before the police got there.
1403、The photographer who took those pictures
1404、told us earlier that he walked up to the door,
1405、he saw what we all saw in his videotape.
1406、And then he started to look inside, so that he could help
1407、or render assistance to someone.
1408、That’s when he walked into the house
1409、and started shooting the video.
1410、He found the three deceased in the house.
1411、The two females and the one…
1412、- Hello. – Hi.
1413、I’m Detective Frontieri. This is my partner, Detective Lieberman.
1414、Are you Louis Bloom?
1415、Yes, I’m Lou.
1416、- You live here? – Yes, that’s right.
1417、May we come inside?
1418、- Why? – Why not?
1419、- You want to? – Yes.
1420、I don’t care.
1422、You were in Granada Hills last night.
1423、Yes, that’s right.
1424、You shot the video in the house?
1425、Yes, ma’am, I did. That’s right.
1426、You went inside the house? You filmed all through the house?
1427、You even filmed the bodies.
1428、All before the police came.
1429、That door was open, ma’am.
1431、The door was open and what I did was
1432、I went in to see if I could help,
1433、because the alarm was ringing.
1434、An active crime scene.
1435、I didn’t know it was a crime scene.
1436、You knew what it was.
1437、I know that an alarm means someone is in trouble.
1438、And you sold it to be shown on TV.
1439、We’re a professional news-gathering service.
1440、What did you see when you arrived?
1441、Uh, two men leaving in a vehicle.
1442、You saw two men?
1443、They were just shapes, really. I was afraid, so I hid.
1444、And then I saw the shapes of two men
1445、moving inside the vehicle, if that helps.
1446、Describe the men.
1447、It was dark.
1448、And then they drove away.
1449、- Black? White? Tall? – I couldn’t see.
1450、What were they driving?
1453、Rims? Tinted windows?
1454、Maybe. Not that I saw.
1455、Do you have any film on the men or the car?
1456、No, I don’t. I only started filming when I was inside.
1457、I’d like a copy of that footage.
1458、Do I have to give it to you?
1459、Is there any reason why you wouldn’t?
1460、No, no, I made you a copy. I expected someone to come.
1461、What’s up, man?
1462、I’m tired. Aren’t you tired?
1463、Why are we starting so early?
1464、One of the people in the house last night was alive.
1465、I cut that part out.
1466、I also cut out the men leaving in their car.
1467、I have a name and an address. We’re gonna drive there.
1468、We’re gonna find the person that drove that car.
1469、So you know who killed those people?
1470、One of them, quite possibly, yes.
1471、You gotta call the cops.
1472、And we will, at the right time.
1473、I’m offering you a real opportunity here, Rick.
1474、To do what?
1475、I don’t usually share my business plan with you.
1476、But a moment has arrived that could allow the company
1477、to make enough money to expand to the next level.
1478、We could call this
1479、the critical moment.
1480、I’m inviting you, Rick, to be a part of the team
1481、that pounces on this opportunity.
1482、You’ve been asking a lot about your performance review.
1486、I’ve been seeing a great improvement
1487、in your overall focus and order-following.
1488、Given complex problems, you’re developing a real ability
1489、to find clear and simple solutions.
1490、I’m also aware of your increased enthusiasm.
1491、It’s great to see your eyes light up
1492、when you’re working on a new idea.
1493、I hope you’ll be inspiring us
1494、with your innovative thinking for years to come.
1495、Thank you, man. I’m trying. You know?
1496、Which is why I’m promoting you
1497、to Executive Vice President of Video News.
1498、What am I now?
1499、You’re an assistant.
1501、Does it come with a raise?
1504、Pick a number. You pick a number.
1506、$75 a night?
1508、What about more? You know?
1510、We closed the deal.
1511、I could have gotten more, couldn’t I?
1513、All right. It’s coming up on the left.
1514、Halfway down the block. 1701 North Burns.
1515、- Is that the car? – That’s the car.
1517、Do you think there’s a reward?
1518、There is a reward.
1519、- How much? – $50,000.
1520、Do I get any of that?
1521、I just gave you a raise.
1522、That’s salary. I mean, a bonus.
1523、Bonuses come at the end of the year.
1524、So, we’re gonna call it in?
1525、- We’re gonna wait. – For what?
1526、First, we want to see if he’s actually inside.
1527、And then, we want to find a more interesting place to film the arrest.
1529、Anywhere we want.
1530、What we’re going to do, is we’re gonna wait
1531、and then we’re gonna follow him.
1532、Then, when he reaches what would be considered
1533、a better or more populated neighborhood,
1534、then we’ll report his location to the police.
1535、He’s a violent, wanted criminal.
1536、I can’t believe
1537、that he’s just going to peacefully surrender.
1538、Okay. I want more money.
1539、A lot more.
1540、What makes a job desirable, Rick,
1541、isn’t just the dollar amount attached to it.
1542、You’re at the ground floor of a growing business.
1543、Your reward is a career.
1545、You’re talking about some seriously messed-up shit.
1546、You’re expecting me
1547、to just go along with it. I want more.
1548、I can’t make people do things, Rick.
1549、You have a choice if you wanna do this.
1550、And I have a choice if you don’t.
1551、Are you threatening to fire me?
1552、Hey, I… I got something, too.
1553、How about not calling in criminals,
1554、waiting for them to start some shit so you can film it?
1555、That’s against the fucking law.
1556、Yeah, cops would be majorly interested in that, no doubt.
1557、Okay? So, I… I want more money.
1558、We can re-open negotiations, Rick.
1560、when it comes to your work reputation,
1561、you can’t un-ring the bell.
1562、I want half of whatever we make tonight.
1563、How did you arrive at that number?
1564、There’s two of us out here.
1566、I’ll counter at $10,000.
1567、You don’t set the numbers on this.
1568、I want half. I want half.
1569、If you’re saying I can’t negotiate,
1570、then I guess I’m…
1571、I’m just gonna have to give it to you.
1572、Well, all right, then.
1573、Now I can feel good about it, at least.
1574、Now, I’ll go the extra mile.
1575、That’s what you never understood, man.
1576、It’s been the problem the whole time.
1577、You gotta bring people in, Lou. Seriously.
1578、You gotta talk to them like they’re fucking human beings.
1579、I’m saying this for you, dude.
1580、For the future, to help you.
1581、Because you got a seriously weird-ass way of looking at shit.
1582、You know you do!
1583、You know what your trouble is, man?
1584、You don’t fucking understand people.
1586、I’ll take the first watch.
1588、Rise and shine.
1590、Is that him?
1591、That’s one of them.
1592、You’re too fucking close, man.
1594、You’re too fucking close.
1595、This guy might have already seen us,
1596、and he’s bringing us here as a trap.
1597、You ever think of that?
1599、They’re gonna see us. We’re in a red fucking car.
1600、Lower your window, please.
1601、Keep your window down.
1602、I’m fucking cold.
1603、Shit, they’re parking.
1605、911, what’s your emergency?
1606、Uh, yes, good evening.
1607、I’d like to report the location of two men
1608、responsible for the triple murder in Granada Hills last night.
1609、What’s your address?
1610、Uh, I followed them,
1611、and they just pulled into the Chinatown Express at Western and Third.
1612、I can see them inside.
1613、Okay, it’s a restaurant called Chinatown Express
1614、at Western and Third.
1615、That’s right. I can see them at the counter and they’re ordering.
1616、These men are wanted for the triple murder in Granada Hills last night.
1617、- What’s your name, sir? – Louis Bloom.
1618、Do you have a description of the men?
1619、Uh, yes,I do. They’re both Latin American men.
1620、Uh, probably what you would call Hispanic.
1621、Uh, one is big, very much on the heavy side.
1622、And the other’s face is scratched.
1623、He has scratches on his face.
1624、How old are the men?
1625、Uh, thirty. Perhaps, maybe, 35.
1626、What are they wearing?
1627、The big man is wearing light pants and a striped sweater,
1628、and the man with scratches is wearing brown pants and a vest.
1629、He looks like he has a gun.
1630、You said the suspect is armed?
1631、I believe so, yes. I’m sorry, I have to go.
1632、Otherwise, they might see me.
1633、All west units, possible 187.
1634、Suspects there now. Western and Third.
1635、Western and Third at Chinatown Express.
1636、Suspects are two male Hispanics.
1637、Number one, large build.
1638、Number two with scratches on his face, inside the location.
1639、Possibly armed. Code Three, incident 357 and 9753.
1640、There’s fucking people in there.
1641、I count six.
1642、So, they could start shooting.
1644、So you said we were waiting for
1645、a better neighborhood with more people,
1646、not a fucking restaurant.
1647、We work with what we’re given.
1648、Unit 14, responding to that Code Three.
1649、You’re going to go down the street,
1650、get an angle inside from over there.
1651、Steady hands. Use the zoom.
1652、No fast pans.
1653、I’ll be filming from here.
1654、Fuck that. I’m not getting out of the car!
1655、I need a second angle from down the street.
1656、We’ll cut it together.
1658、Believe me, it’s more dangerous here in the car.
1659、I don’t believe anything you say.
1660、Man, this is fucked!
1661、Do you know I’ve never once sworn in front of an employer?
1662、I am not doing it! I’m not getting out of the car.
1663、You’re making a mistake.
1664、I don’t care about the fucking job title.
1665、What if my problem wasn’t that I don’t understand people,
1666、but that I don’t like them?
1667、What if I was obliged to hurt you for something like this?
1668、I mean, physically.
1669、I think you’d have to believe afterwards, if you could,
1670、that agreeing to participate
1671、and then backing out at the critical moment was a mistake.
1672、Because that’s what I’m telling you.
1673、As clearly as I can.
1674、7- A-14. We’re Code Six to location.
1675、7- A-21. Show us backing 7-A-14.
1677、7- A-21. We’re Code Six with 7-A-14.
1681、Oh, God! Oh, fuck!
1682、We have a gun! Two of them!
1683、Call it in!
1684、Shots fired. Shots fired.
1685、Officer down. Officer needs help.
1686、One’s down! In pursuit!
1687、Go, go, go!
1688、Oh, my God!
1689、Suspect leaving in a black Escalade
1690、and out of the location, heading north.
1692、Did you get it?
1693、There’s people dead in there!
1694、7- A-27. I’m behind vehicle, we are in pursuit.
1695、7- A-27, roger.
1696、All units at all frequencies, stand by.
1697、Aim the camera at the car and start filming.
1698、7- A-27 in pursuit,
1699、northbound through the alley of 187.
1700、Suspect vehicle is a black Escalade.
1701、Rick. Start filming!
1702、7- A-27. We just turned northbound on Western.
1703、Stay on the police car.
1704、You’re right up his ass.
1705、Wide angle. We want all of this.
1706、Requesting backup and an air unit.
1707、Any air unit, come in on Wilshire frequency.
1708、- Lou, Lou, Lou! – I got it.
1709、Northbound. 70 miles an hour. Approaching a fresh red.
1710、Steady hands, Rick.
1711、It’s a red light! It’s a red light! Red light!
1712、…approaching a red light.
1714、Six, North, Charles, Queen,
1715、- 5-3-2. Black Escalade. – Fuck!
1716、Give me an ETA on an air ship.
1717、Air A team responding
1718、with a light for mission. Stand by.
1719、Heading northbound Western, south of suspect.
1720、Approaching another fresh red.
1721、Suspect is turning…
1723、7- A-27, come in.
1725、Did you see that? Did you see that?
1726、No acknowledgment from 7-A-27.
1727、Lou, look out, look out!
1728、7- L-0-7. I’m now primary.
1729、Suspect is behind me.
1730、7- L-7 is now primary.
1731、Lou, Lou, please.
1732、We’re way too close.
1733、This guy’s crazy. Fucking shit!
1734、He’s ramming my vehicle!
1735、All units. Officer needs help.
1737、Suspect now ramming a police vehicle.
1738、No matter what, keep shooting.
1741、Oh, shit! Shit!
1742、Oh, my God!
1743、7- L-7, come in.
1744、7- L-7, come in.
1745、Turn off the car.
1747、Get this shot.
1749、Use your zoom.
1750、Hold it right there! Put the gun down!
1751、He had a weapon. That was a just fire.
1752、He’s not moving.
1753、Let’s seal this off.
1754、You saw him.
1755、You saw him!
1756、I can’t jeopardize my company’s success
1757、to retain an untrustworthy employee.
1760、You took my bargaining power, Rick.
1761、You used it against me.
1762、You would have done it again.
1763、Just admit it.
1764、I don’t know.
1765、I don’t know.
1768、Don’t touch that unless it’s for prints. Make a clean sweep.
1769、Go around the vehicle.
1770、Let them through, here they come.
1773、- Hello, Ben. Hello, Lisa. – Hi!
1774、Hey. It’s Lou, right?
1775、Yes, that’s right!
1776、- Video News? – That’s right.
1777、You got something good for us tonight?
1778、I think so. I’m about to show Nina right now.
1779、I can tell by your tie, it’s Friday.
1780、You can leave.
1781、Wasn’t that your partner?
1782、As a matter of fact, that’s him.
1783、Oh, I’m floored.
1784、I mean, it’s amazing.
1786、I mean, just amazing.
1788、No, thank you.
1789、Thank you for bringing it to me.
1791、I want it, obviously.
1792、How much do you want it?
1793、You tell me.
1794、Get this to graphics.
1795、Who’s in charge here?
1796、Who are you?
1797、LAPD. Major case.
1798、Pull the footage from these screens.
1799、Round it up. Let’s go. All copies.
1801、I’m the news director. Can I help you?
1802、You can help yourself
1803、by collecting up every copy of the shootout
1804、the chase, the crash, all of it. Now.
1805、It’s KWLA property.
1806、- It’s evidence. – Of what?
1807、I got a cop near death in the hospital,
1808、three dead, four wounded,
1809、and a dozen major crimes stretching a mile of Third.
1810、This tape is evidence.
1811、It’s news footage bought and paid for
1812、from an independent contractor.
1813、And how do you think he got it?
1814、If there’s an issue, speak to him.
1815、Don’t get in the way of this.
1816、Unless you have a judge’s order,
1817、we’re going with it in four minutes.
1819、Isn’t that him?
1820、Camera Two, we’ll do a zoom out when we come out.
1821、Joel has got a source on the taskforce who says they found drugs
1822、at the Granada Hills house.
1823、Cocaine in wrapped packages hidden in crawlspaces. Over 50 pounds.
1824、He confirmed it with an investigator at the scene.
1825、It wasn’t a home invasion. It was a drug robbery.
1826、Give it to the noon crew.
1827、This is news.
1828、It detracts from the story.
1829、It is the story.
1830、The story is urban crime creeping into the suburbs.
1831、That’s the story.
1832、Jesus, you sound like Lou.
1833、Ten seconds to back.
1834、I think Lou is inspiring all of us to reach a little higher.
1835、Five, four, three, two, one. Sting it.
1837、You understand that you’ve been read your rights,
1838、and you’re here voluntarily?
1839、That’s right. Yes.
1840、And this is being recorded and filmed?
1841、Yes, from the camera up there.
1843、Would you tell me how it is you were
1844、at the Chinatown Express tonight
1845、and called the 911?
1847、It began earlier in the day.
1848、I was watering my plant.
1849、I looked out my window at my apartment.
1850、The one you visited.
1851、I saw a dark-colored vehicle with two men inside parked across the street.
1852、I didn’t think anything of it,
1853、otherwise I would have reported it then.
1854、We began our night,
1855、my employee and myself.
1856、And around approximately 12:38,
1857、I looked in my rearview mirror
1858、and I saw what looked like the same men
1859、in the same vehicle following us.
1860、I made an evasive maneuver.
1861、I circled back and tailed them to the restaurant.
1862、At which point, I saw them go inside
1863、and recognized them as the same men from the home invasion.
1864、You told me you didn’t see the men.
1865、That you didn’t get a good look at them.
1866、Well, it all came back to me when I saw them going in.
1867、Their shapes and their movements.
1868、And then I saw that one of the men had a gun under his shirt,
1869、so I immediately got my phone and dialed 911.
1870、That’s your story?
1871、That’s what happened. That’s why I’m sitting here with you.
1872、I think that the men saw my footage
1873、and they tracked me down.
1874、You want to know what I think?
1876、I think you withheld information.
1877、I think you saw the two men in the murder house in Granada Hills
1878、and you saw the car and you sat on it
1879、to get something you could film.
1880、What do you think about that?
1881、I think that would be
1882、a very unprofessional thing for me to do in my business.
1883、It would be murder.
1884、I can understand why you’re looking into it,
1885、but I didn’t do anything like that.
1886、Nothing that could be considered wrong.
1887、You don’t fool me for a minute.
1889、I think everything you said is a lie.
1890、I wish my partner was here to back up what happened.
1891、You left your dead partner.
1892、No, the ambulances arrived.
1893、They’re trained professionals.
1894、Yeah, and you seem real broken up about that.
1896、He died doing what he loved.
1897、You filmed him dying.
1898、Yeah. That’s what I do. It’s my job.
1899、I like to say that if you’re seeing me,
1900、you’re having the worst day of your life.
1901、Any Rampart unit,
1902、ambulance to 11 Rampart on Second Avenue.
1903、Victim, female, white. Unknown property taken.
1906、Your selection by Video Production News
1907、is evidence of the hiring committee’s recognition
1908、of your employment history and unique personal qualities.
1909、It is my hope that through hard work and commitment,
1910、you will move through the intern program
1911、and continue to pursue your career goals
1912、as full-time employees of Video Production News.
1913、I can tell you from experience
1914、that the surest way up the ladder is to listen carefully
1915、and follow my orders.
1916、You may be confused at times, and other times, unsure.
1917、But remember, I will never ask you to do anything
1918、that I wouldn’t do myself.
