Hey Shawn - Totally agree with your idea
to have a production using HAN members
for all areas of the film! There are members
who would fit into every category - in front
of the camera, as well as behind
I'm with you 100% - great idea, and let's
keep the interest alive!! Good, no - excellent
idea and the thought process behind it.
Take care Shawn, and I'm with you until
the project actually see's the light of day!
With respect and aloha,
Good point that local cops wouldn't be standing around while another local cop got beat. But I think that the idea that Kaleo's betrayal led to the death of another officer and the fact that Danno was the dead officer's former partner are pretty good mitigating circumstances. Plus it was nice to not see Danno portrayed as such an outsider. And just how many bald officers does HPD have?
