< yesterday -- tomorrow >

reporter: How does it feel to potentially save the world from a potentially dangerous alleged potential terrorist?
officer: Just doing my job.
reporter: Would you really have shot her if she hadn’t complied? She did turn out to be innocent.
officer: She is not innocent. Scaring people is illegal unless I do it.
reporter: Even so, she had no bomb. How would that have felt?
officer: It would have made no difference to me. I’m already an ace.
reporter: An “ace”?
officer: Sure. You know how lots of kids these days wear these shoes with lights that flash when they walk?
reporter: Um....
officer: Look. They give me one of these little turban symbols every time I nail one.
