Show Notes

With the shooting, seemingly, behind us, Mike continues his narrative into the 1980s, primarily following the actions of Chuck Falco. And after the completion of his probation sentence, Chuck sets his sights on evening a score. Then, Mike expresses his doubts with the official version of the shooting. While he and James review the police reports and surviving evidence, Mike points out inconsistencies and discrepancies, opening the door for speculation and conjecture about the shooting.
