As I wrote here recently, Fringe has a lot of built-in challenges, but it also struggles under the headwinds of the zeitgeist. Fringe was intended to recapture some the old X-Files thunder, but with an obvious upstairs directive to avoid the anti-government and anti-establishment vitriol that Chris Carter packed into his storylines to the very end.
A Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy is under investigation after amatuer video was released showing him punch a special-needs woman in the face on a Bellflower bus.
Jermaine Green, the man who recorded the video, has also told NBC LA, that the cop also threatened him with arrest if he didn't hand over the cell phone that contained the incriminating video.
It appears that a fight broke out between the cop and the woman, after he boarded the bus with another deputy. The woman is reported to have been argumentative with the deputies, including cursing at them, before she was assaulted.
