Two women chat about the shooting; Steve is standing nearby with a basketball and can hear them. He starts walking, trotting, then running. The camera pans out until we can't see him anymore in the crowd of Harlem neighborhood residents.
The two women talk about how they wish they could move away, but there's nowhere else to go.
Flashback #2: The News Report
Jerry and Steve are watching the news in their home.
A neighborhood resident tells a newscaster that there's no surprise that the burglary/ murder happened. He says people get killed all the time.
Jerry changes the channel. Steve stares, fish-faced, at the TV.
Flashback #3: Steve's House, Two Weeks After the Shooting
Mrs. Harmon is relieved that the burglars were caught. She and Steve watch the updated news report, and even Mayor Giuliani gives his two cents.
Steve heads to his room and plays the stare game with the ceiling.
The doorbell rings.
It's Detectives Williams and Karyl. They need Steve for questioning.
Steve's mom asks what's going on, but they brush her off. She will have none of that and insists on coming—she just needs to grab her coat.
Jerry reaches out to Steve as the detectives cuff him and bring him to the patrol car. Off they go.
Mrs. Harmon rushes outside, looks around, and starts running down the street. And then she realizes that she doesn't even know where the detectives took Steve.
Not only did the cops not wait for her, they took her kid and didn't tell her where to. That is so not cool.
