They Should Check the Gun


Voicemail received in response to "Caught on Tape," February 21: "I'm calling, first of all I'm a black man, and 'nigger' was used, very stupidly by stupid people, but that's immaterial. What should be checked out is the guy bought this gun from a person. Did they find out where the gun come from? Did the gun kill anybody? It seemed like they forgot that whole thing, but he's an ignorant bastard himself... They should make sure the gun wasn't used in a robbery. He should be charged, he bought a gun like that, that should be a case right there. It was a very good, strong article. Good work. Bye bye."
