I said, Frank Renda.

He's a hit man.

You know what I'm saying?

He shoots people with a gun.

And you ask him

is he gonna eat his sausage.

Cuff Renda.

All right, let's go.

Today, Frank Renda is being taken...

to the county seat for pretrial examination

on a charge of first-degree murder.

Renda, a familiar name in organized crime...

has been arrested

nine times without a conviction.

This time, apprehended

by an off-duty police officer...

who actually witnessed the murder

outside a local bar.

It would appear Renda's luck

has finally run out.

Hey, hey, come on.

What the hell?

This is Ron Malone with On The Spot News

coming to you from Edna, Colorado.

Now he's a TV star.

The keys for the handcuffs!

The keys! Move!

Just see if he's got them.

Hey, he's hurt pretty bad.

If we don't get him out of here,

he's gonna bleed to death.

The keys.

Man, I was drunk driving.

I don't want to get shot for that.

The keys.

Hey, out there!

We got a wounded man here.

Hold your fire, we'll bring him out.

The keys.

Go ahead.

The keys.

Don't shoot.

Take him out, okay?

What are you doing, you?

Man, I hope you know what you're doing.

What are you doing?

Get the bus with Renda. That way.

Let's get the hell out of here.

The panel truck. Get the truck.

Hey, you move, you.

I had you figured for the local clown,

but you really move.

Hey, what'd they bust you for?

Assault with a shotgun.

A shotgun?

That's attempted murder, man.

They're gonna jam you the same as me.

I got an idea that might work.

You don't worry about it.

I give you a phone number to call,

we'll be out of the country before morning.

I like my idea better.

Now listen, you come with me...

be worth plenty.

Sound good?

You got it ass backwards. I ain't coming
