A cop guards the open gateway that leads from the house's driveway to the side yard, in case the man inside attempts to flee.
Just outside, hidden in a moving van, there were at least a half dozen more people -- local city cops, the so-called Takedown Team -- all armed and ready to spring at a moment's notice.
A couple of months ago, when Schrack showed up at an audition at the NBC studios in Burbank, California, he hadn't really known what he was getting himself into.
After a few minutes of this, the cameraman starts playing with the composition.
The screen fills almost entirely with the bush, and then the view pans left from the bush to the cop, who is big and bald and has three upside-down blue V's -- sergeant stripes -- on the sleeve of his shirt. A green wheelbarrow leaning belly-exposed against a red wall.
So though he had known that he was auditioning for pays a consulting fee, pose in online chat rooms as underage teens living in that small town.
If an adult man starts hitting on one of these fake kids, the Perverted Justice decoys save the transcripts of his chats.Imagine how an episode of flagrant public drunkenness in the life of such a man might sear itself into the memories of those who witnessed it.Twenty years later and they still laugh at the thought of him being barrowed home with a brain full of booze.The party's host had hired a local kid named Eric Bishop to provide entertainment, and Bishop -- who would eventually change his name to Jamie Foxx and move west -- was playing old R&B covers, pounding them out on a borrowed piano. And finally: The host and another friend poured the shambling young district attorney into, yes, a wheelbarrow.They delivered him to his home, legs and arms flopping out to the sides like the limbs of an upended turtle.They drive the plot, and Hansen never knows exactly where that plot is going to take him.
