A little warlock, house of Blood set.

Apparently, at least two blacks

drive by in a van, say "Hey, Blood." Boom.


She saw it.

(Mrs Craig wails)

Ex cuse me.

- I ain't seen nothin'.

- I'd like to ask you a few questions.

- Nothin'!

- Ma'am, if you saw this, you can't...

Who can't? Just get on out of my face.

Are you gonna just close your eyes

every time this happens?

- There's a kid laying here dead, ma'am!

- Let's go, let's go. She has to live here.

(Mrs Craig) No, please!

(Mrs Craig) No!

He can't die! He can't die!

D'you need anything?

Jeez, I don't know, Hodges.

Maybe some of your valuable expertise.

I doubt it. You guys are doin' such a fine

job, that's why they call us out at 2am.

Hey, why don't you flyin' CRASH guys

go take a flyin' f*ck?

Hey, f*ck you.

- F*ck you.

- Let's get in the car.

There's too many bodies around here.

(Mrs Craig) No! No! No!

He can't die! No!

Lord have mercy! Lord have mercy!


The kid was a Blood. Dealing too.

Whether it was drugs or gang related, I

don't know. For now, let's hook and book.

Be inventive. Find some probable cause.

Get both gangs off the street,

at least for a night or two.

Let 'em calm down. See if they'll talk.

What I need is a shot of Demerol

and some clean sheets.

Whoa, whoa. Any further questions?

- No, sir.

- All right. Let's rock'n'roll.

- Stand up. Keep your fuckin' mouth shut.

- Why the f*ck you holdin' on us?

- Wait, wait.

- Shut up!

Don't get ex cited, man. Wait!

Yo, man, we ain't did nothin'!

Man, they rode on us.

The punk-ass motherfuckers!

Keep movin, Rocket.

(Ice-T) I am a nightmare walkin'

Psychopath talkin'

King of my jungle

Just a gangster stalkin'

Livin' life like a firecracker

Quick is my fuse

Vendettas of death

Back the colors I choose
