    Thinkmodo, the PR firm responsible for the film Dead Man Down released a YouTube video of a simulated murder on a public elevator. Two actors, one of whom is almost comically dressed like a bad guy, are charged with carrying out a fake strangling as the elevator doors open and the unsuspecting elevator-riding public of New York are exposed to what would appear to be a very real example of a very profound question:

    What do you do if you witness a murder in progress?

    Not sure how real this is, seems legit--the lady with the flowers is awesome :flowers:

    I'd probably freeze up, and then try to move away as fast as possible

    Seriously how bad would it be if I was at this (experiment) and shot the "strangler" in the head? Sure the shooting would be justified (other methods might be preferred but it is a deadly force situation) but what a mess it would create in the court system. Lawsuits everywhere!

    This has probably been asked numerous times, but what is the craziest thing you have ever seen being a 5-0?

    I'll answer later.....i gotta do barn chores now.

    Define "craziest" a bit please. The most fucked up thing I've seen, the coolest "save" I've had, the closest I've been to thinking it was over for me, craziest arrest/dead body/car chase, etc.?

    I've seen and been involved in many fucked up scenes. I don't mind posting about the stuff but I hate to come off as a loud mouth or "story teller".

    I'm not picky, whatever stands out the most.

    My next door neighbor picks up dead bodies for a living.He contracts for the county coroner.You would not even believe the stories he has! Decomposition can be quite nasty depending upon the situation.
