Kellen Turner: You know I had a friend that was shot down by the police in Philadelphia, shot in his back about 9 times. And they said he had a gun but he did not have a gun. All because they asked him to turn around and he kept walking. And they shot him 9 times. And they said that somebody said that he had a gun, which they found out that he did not have a gun, and they was ushering people in the houses, [indistinct] out to see ‘cause they was trying to put one down there, which in result years later his mom received one of the highest paid settlements in Philadelphia history.

Terry Baxter: Wild story.

Kellen Turner: Yeah. Thank you, that will be all for it.

Terry Baxter: Thank you.
