Almost every true crime documentary comes to this one same conclusion: If you’re poor, the chances of you successfully defending yourself against false allegations are slim to none. That’s very obviously true when it comes to O.J. Simpson. If he didn’t have the expendable cash necessary to hire a huge team of defense lawyers, the “Trial of the Century” would’ve lasted about a week, and it damn sure wouldn’t have ended with him being found innocent. The same can be said for Steven Avery. The only reason Making A Murderer even exists is that he settled that now-famous $36 million lawsuit he’d filed against the Manitowoc County Sheriffs Department for just $400,000 and used that money to pay for his defense in the Teresa Halbach case. If not for that, he wouldn’t have been able to afford those lawyers.
Adam Levine handled his biggest fan having a panic attack in the sweetest fashion.
Christopher Warner, a 10-year-old from Maryland with Down syndrome, is pretty serious about Maroon 5.
So serious he made this fan video (below), in which he rather adorably prints out all his favourite photos of the band.
It was picked up by Hot 99.5’s Kane Show, which arranged for Christopher to go backstage at the band’s show in Washington DC and meet them. The boy was so overwhelmed by meeting his heroes however that he suffered a panic attack and had to lay down on the floor.
But Levine then simply laid beside him and suggested everyone else do the same, before taking photos on the floor and generally hanging out down there.
“[Christopher] has just been fascinated with Maroon 5 and especially Adam Levine,” Avery Stanert, a special education teacher at the school, told The Today Show. "He loves to listen to their music during work breaks. He draws pictures of them. He just absolutely loves them.“
Adam and Avery were already working hard on their wedding. The officer had his suit picked out, they knew where the wedding was going to happen. All it took now was a lot of patience. He felt like time wasn’t passing at all and all he wanted was to be able to call her his wife already. Until then, Adam would just try to distract himself with work and his son. He took Jasper to the daycare and smiled as all the other kids looked at him in his uniform. The kids always loved it when he came, wearing his uniform. It always made him feel like some sort of hero. The officer drove to work afterwards, buying a coffee-to-go on his way. As he entered the station, he waved at his colleagues and took a sip of coffee.
Adam sat in his office, checking some mails before he grabbed his phone. “Hey babe. Since this is my last day of work before our wedding, how about we go out to dinner tonight? I love you ♥”, he texted his fiancée. After a few minutes, they got called to an old factory. Sometimes, this job can be really hectic and all of a sudden, they found themselves in the car. They arrived and Adam held his gun up as they entered the old, abandoned building. On the first floor, a guy held another man in a choke hold, his gun pointing to his head. Situations like these were nerve-wrecking, but Adam knew how to remain calm. “Sir, please put the gun down!”, he said, his own still up to protect himself. “We’re not gonna do anything to you if you cooperate.”
