POLICE LOG: Tensions are high at an annual streetball tournament when word gets out that Officer Dov Epstein shot a supposedly unarmed kid from the neighborhood. Detailed report follows:
Dov Epstein is living the dream. He has a great job, great pals and a beautiful girlfriend. The only thing that could possibly make his life better is licorice. He stops by a corner market to snag a sweet treat, but walks in on a robbery in progress. Dov draws his gun when a young kid in a hoodie ducks behind the counter. He calls for backup. Chris races toward the scene pulling the store clerk out of harm's way. The kid pops up pointing something at Dov. BANG! BANG! Dov shoots. The suspect goes down. Blood pours onto the floor.
Paramedics work to save the kid. Dov claims the suspect had a gun, but no weapon is found in the store. The clerk is no help, as he claims to have seen a white cop gun down a black kid in cold blood. Dov quickly realizes that internal police investigators are wondering if this was a racially-motivated shooting. Things get worse when the kid who was shot dies in surgery.
