    That absolutely makes no sense! How can cops show up and not see a film crew and how did they get past the director?

    I've never been on a movie/tv set but I can't believe that only a few people are involved in filming!

    Apparently it is a very small production company, probably on a very limited budget

    I'm trying not to victim blame but really?
    Police are known for arresting open carriers. https://christophercantwell.com/2013/10/22/north-carolina-woman-arrested-for-unloaded-open-carry/
    Arrest teens for having something that looked like a rifle. https://www.sott.net/article/300819...lescope-that-cops-thought-looked-like-a-rifle
    Shoot journalists. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/nat...-photographing-traffic-stop-article-1.3469666

    and then they are going to shoot a movie where a armed gunman flees a bar and not do a courtesy notification to the police?? :applause:

    I'm sure they had to pull permits and file paperwork with the city. Some where in all the paperwork they had to tell them they were shooting a movie and a mock store robbery was part of a scene.

    Maybe, the movie was about the cops walking up on a movie scene? Or yelling two sets of commands? "Get down" or "get back?" It just seems weird they didn't have someone outside making sure anybody else didn't walk "on set".

    Reminds me the time 15 yrs ago when visiting Roswell Mill (the park). Ran into a half dozen young people with large caliber handguns, several sitting on the bridge railing others hand carried. The apologized for needing the bridge to complete their movie. I was happy to go the other way, since I did not know if the guns were loaded.

    I hope they got done before getting into major legal trouble.

    That actor is lucky the cop was a very bad shot. It would have been a justified shooting, too, at the moment he pulled the trigger, judging from the body camera video.
