Ah, okay. Just got some info on the movie their prepping for on IMDB. It's called End of Watch and it's being written and directed by David Ayer. The same guy responsible for Training Day, Harsh Times, Street Kings, and Dark Blue. So, in a way, I guess this will be like a sequel to Training Day. That dude only knows how to make one type of movie...

Only nine comments so far, and two of them spammers. How many will the story of some stupid drunk model in a DeLorean get?

Gang member = desperate idiot. I wish the gangs would just eliminate each other and disappear off the face of the planet!

Why would anyone want to be a gang member? It's dangerous! No one does. I hope this man is OK and the shooters go to jail for years. They never show who does these things, only the victims, but you would be surprised at the disgusting low lifes who harm people. They don't deserve to exist. Good for Nothing.

Ironically, it was actually at one of the mayor's ANTI-gang summer programs at the park.

well if that gang member was a homosexual male, then it was not just gang violence, but a hate crime, and the law HAS TO!!! go after and GET!! that person, no matter what. just like the guy who got knocked out in front of a club for being an ass (as shown on tmz). that too was a homosexual related hate crime, which is why the LAPD had to go find the gay hater and arrest and prosecute them. hate crime = ZERO TOLERANCE!!!!
