38. Elsewhere, Angry Reporter Lady is approaching a Cuban community center, snapping photos for some reason. Just then, a cop car pulls up. But it seems the invasion team somehow got hold of a cop car and uniforms, because the “cops” step out and promptly shoot up the place.

39. They leave, and then the real cops show up, and of course the survivors quickly turn on them.

This is an interesting way to carry out an invasion, to say the least. I guess attacking military installations would have made far too much sense.
