i have tried so hard to forget what it felt like when someone told me i had colon cancer. we had the follow up, cat scan which showed that it had gone to her liver. it was pteretty intense and we needed to move pretty quickly. we needed a second opinion. that's when our journey began with cancer treatment centers of america. one of our questions was, how are we going to address my liver. so my doctor said i think we can do both ie surgeries together. i loved that. to find out more about our treatment options, go to cancercenter.com our teams of physicians and clinicians are experienced and compassionate, bringing you a level of care you won't find anywhere else. my health is good.
appreciate you comin' in. well... mr. lee was a good man. no race prejudice. as many of them as he had to deal with. kirkendall: you want some coffee? no, i'm all right. so who do you think it was that might have killed mr. lee? could've been any of 'em. "them" being who? the blacks. half of 'em are drunksks, crackheads, and the young ones are all hoodlums. any kids specifically you think might've done this? kids who run in pairs? any of 'em. she's asking if any of "them" in particular
why weren't you at work today, george? i was at h home with my kids. my wife's mother's in the hospital havin' heart surgery. how did mr. lee get along with his son? 3 years i worked for mr. lee, i saw the guy maybe half a dozen times. he thought he was better than his father, smarter. like, mr. lee played the numbers. one time he hits, and, uh, the runner's late payin', and his son says mr. lee's stupid, to pay off. but he did get paid, 3 days later. all right, georgrge. we have your information if we need you again. i'm sorry my wife's mother got sick. cop called, and i left my kids to come cooperate. mr. lee was a good guy. no race prejudice towards me. all right.

th in the catching area? i'm gonna talk to herrrigh. all right. don't waste my time. i gather this woman came forward because of the reward money you're offering in your father's case. money's all these people understanan as you say, the prospect of a payday generates attention from all kinds of people. i hope this woman's information is productive, but if we have t tcontinue our investigation, your letting our office handle the reward process the useless information and bring you the rest. mr. lee, were you listening to what i just said? let us handle the investigation, and give yourself some time to absorb the shock of your father's death. my shock is none of your business. this woman knows my father's killers, and i stay with the money until those boys are arrested. no, you don't, mr. lee. now, you stop shouting, you turn around, you leave this building,
she knows who killed my father. if she knows, my detectives will find that out. i got a child comin', and i got to look out for myself. now, i made mistakes. don't think i'm the onliest one who's done that. but this is where i am, and i got responsibilities to myself, my future, and my baby. well, you see how i'm beat up. i got a right to some compensation, and i got a right to a future. the boys you lookin' for are named gerard and antwan. they done that robbery, done for that chinaman, and they beat me up, too. gimme that pen.
se me. - you the super? - sam podesky. detective sipowicz. this is detective russell. - this your son? - billy. yeah. russell: how's it goin', billy? how's it going? what's goin' on? one of your tenants was beaten on her way to school this morning. annie watters? no. is she all right? where you been this morning? workin' in the building. is the little girl all right? she should be all right, yeah. what about your boy there? where's he been? doin' my chores with me. i couldn't say. but it wasn't like we were hidin'. i'd like to ask billy a few questions now. he's slow. you understand. billy, what did you do this morning? we had breakfast. we had our cereal, right? and we d-did our trash and daddy fixed the buzzers. did you see annie watters today, billy? no. annie says you beat her up. what? he did no such thing. billy, why do you think annie would say
he wouldn't hurt anyone. this girl's mother might've put her up to this. - why do you think she'd do that? - off my occasion saying she had me keeping an eye on her little one too often. having you keep an eye on annie? i don't mind, but if we're doin' chores, sometimes she can get in harm's way. so, since i said that, her mother's agitated against me and billy. remarks to the tenants... the owner. um...time to put in the trash, right? just a second, son. all right, mr. podesky. nothin' against billy unless her mother made her. this a good boy. you ask the tenants. yeah. all right, thanks. a junkie will tell you anything. and she did take a beating,
says she's been holding the gun for her boyfriend. she's out the last couple of nights. 7 months pregnant. 7 months pregnant and using. she comes home this morning, the gun's gone. a couple of hours later, the boys show up. she asks them about the gun, the older one punches her out. how's she know they're at her mother's? says the younger one was scared. that's where they hide out when they're in trouble. all right. get some help and pick them up. yeah. so, uh, what'd you say to the doa's son? greg, james, you guys ok to give us a hand? yeah, sure. what do you like to drink, annie? do you have apple juice? you bet. you got cranberry juice? i'll have to look. cranberry juice. how'd it go with the super's son? he didn't rape nobody. we're gonna reinterview.
mother's a junkie. she's just gonna give her kids up for the reward. and they say no good comes of dope. i'll talk to you in a while, boss. yeah. whatever. then i'll have apple juice, too. so we wanted to tell you and annie how things are going on our investigation. we talked to billy podesky and his dad. they both say he was with his father all morning. all right, miss nelson? we also talked to your neighbors. there isn't more than a 10 or 15-minute interval between one or another of them seeing billy. well, between me and the super of their building, whose side do you think they're gonna take? be still now. gloria, we're pretty well convinced billy wasn't involved.
or they just make a mistake. grown-ups make mistakes, too. but it's not something that you should feel embarrassed about or feel like you can't say. so the first thing i'd like to ask is if you think-- with everything going on at the hospital-- maybe what you said back then could have been wrong? hmm? it wasn't billy. ok, sweetheart. do you want some of my apple juice?
annie... can you tell us anything at all that might help us catch the person who did this? a man... said he lost his kitty and if i could help him look. so i went there with him to look. so then he did all his bad things. he wasn't too tall, and he was losing some of his hair. and i scratched him here... on his cheek. ok, annie. that's gonna help us. good for you.
[crying] you don't know what it's like, a single mother in this kind of city. all right, baby. you all set up on the fire-escape? officer on walkie-talkie: all set up outside. - woman: who is it? - neighborhood watch. i'd like to show you a picture of a missing child. i don't know nothin' about it. well, could i just show you the picture?
leave 'em alone! i'm sick. don't move! don't move, or you will get hurt. hey! what-- what we done? just lie still. bathroom's clear. i got a gun. what are they doing? there's nothing you can do for them now. aah! just relax. we got them. let's go. 'twan! gerard: don't say nothin', 'twan. yeah, you keep listening to your brother, 'twan. look how much good he's done for you so far. 15 squad to central,
