    I like the line “for some unknown reason police opened fire”.

    I’m thinking it went down like this.
    The new guy showed up looking all tactical, was briefed, walked into the room, saw the man had a gun and then shouted “he’s got a gun” and once the first round went off, they all started squeezing the trigger.

    Or scenerio #2, “fuck it call his bluff and shoot him” see he if wants to die or begs for you to stop shooting.

    You guys ever read about old Gomer Pile and the L.A. Rams back in the day. Apparently the team considered him a good luck charm. Something to do with the national anthem, but he hung with Roman Gabriel and Jack Snow a bunch.

    Is Jim Nabors still alive and if he is how could there be a memorial park named after him? Golly and Shazam what a surprise that would be to Gomer. Maybe the memorial park is named after his late cousin Goober Pyle.
