    Hey guys, it might be a good idea to include captions so we know who folks are and what they’re doing. Who are the folks climbing over the gate and why are they doing so? What are the names of the police? Did you speak to them? What are their thoughts? And the older gentleman in the last frame, who is he and what was he speaking to the police about?
