MC and HMrecorded a special edition of the Crossover Show this week in honor of Hayward PD Sgt. Scott Lunger.
Sgt. Lunger was shot and killed in the line of duty during an early morning traffic stop on July 22, 2015. At the time of the recording, very little information was available regarding the incident. MC and HM don’t talk specifically about the incident in which Sgt. Lunger was involved. Instead, HM takes the lead in asking MC about the dangers of traffic stops and if they should ever be considered “routine”.
MC and HM appreciate your listening to a difficult episode. The guys have left the usual frivolity, patches, and BOLO for another show.
This episode opens with radio traffic from Sgt. Lunger’s partner (and an incredibly professional and cool-headed dispatcher) and ends emotionally as well.
If you appreciate our show and this episode in particular, please share it.
MC and HM welcome their buddy from Down Under, Nick Williams! Sure, they start with talking about the craziness of the metric system, Celsius, and Australian medic’s insane vacation policies, but they quickly take a left turn to bring up one of everyone’s favorite topics:
Come listen in to hear the differences between our two countries’ responses after large massacres (specifically the Port Arthur Massacre in Australia and Sandy Hook in the United States).
The only BOLO this week is a 15-minute bit on gun control by Australian comic Jim Jeffries:
Thanks again to Nick Williams for taking a week to spend with us! Safe travels home, Nicholas Cage!
