    Ballsy or just stupid? I'll vote stupid. Hey, let's go film some drug dealers. They could have done all of those shots from a camera car. Smells like a stupid publicity stunt.

    I find it strange that a country like the USA has areas of such deprivation, although I've seen such scenes in movies. I thought it was a first world country and the worlds richest or if not one of the richest. :shock:

    It is a first world country AND a third world country.
    They have the best of (almost) everything side by side with the worst.
    Census figures show more than 45 million living in poverty there.
    A trip there can be a real eye-opener.
    There's a lot Hollywood doesn't tell you about the USA.

    Wow now some of you guys say some pretty ridiculous stuff but this!...........lol

    Anyhow i have been working with a foundation and i have been asked to get some footage of skid row but i wont be doing that unless i have the PD with me and it will be broad daylight. I have gone down there to take food and clothing and even simply handing out free stuff turns pretty dangerous pretty quickly.
