Hey! If you're going to pull a Horatio, he has to do all that, and then say the final line twice.

Chaos? Panic?... Disorder??

Another thing...I HATE it when a weapon (other than a revolver) goes empty and *clicks* 3-4 times without the actor cycling the weapon.
i hate the investigator picking up the gun by sticking a pencil down the barrel...
I hate that show. Only good if I have to kill the time and booze is not an option. A moralistic fap-o-rama that makes me root for the villains. This might sound like a self-contradiction, but let's have three cheers for amoralism and nihilism!

Exhibit B: The mid 20th century. The american assault on Okinawa. Civilians are committing suicide en masse. A young woman advances towards the edge of a cliff, pauses and turn around to look into the camera, then she continues on and jumps to her death.
Now, people have, are and will darwin themselves and commit suicide without the presence of a camera. (However, the mass suicides of Okinawa is the product of totalitarian propaganda. And the totalitarian media per excellence is the loudspeaker, but I digress.) But in these two specific cases the cameras gave these two persons no leeway at all. Without a camera, the man could've claimed that he slipped and twisted an ankle on his way up and the woman could've said that a couple of soldiers pounced on her while she was taking a dump or something. Ergo: The camera made it a zero-sum game. It was impossible for everyone to be a winner.
So it's quite rational for a suspect to make an ever greater scene during COPS than necessary. Play the cards right and you'll go from local to national to a global menace.
P.S. I could've been wrong about the documentary. But it doesn't really matter, since all Markers films are interesting.
