“I just want to make it clear first of all, I’m calling from Bel Air, California,” said the caller, who identified himself as Jack Strickland, and not Will Smith. “But I’m originally from Philadelphia, specifically West Philadelphia.”

At some point during the conversation, a couple of guys who were up to no good essentially started causing trouble in my neighborhood.
