If a guy had come at cops in New York waving a tanto or wakizashi they'd have put 57 bullets in him. Then they'd say, "Well, the lights were out in the hallway and he looked black." But those Easton cops handled that pretty well.

You think he's the guy had the meth lab in that little copse of trees out past the cornfield? He was from Union City. Well, Okay, Mill Village, actually. They get really riled up if you say Union City. It's so cute.
