[video] Aftermath with William Shatner - Bernard Goetz

"Two-time Emmy Award-winner William Shatner takes an in-depth look at what happens when people are tragically or infamously transformed from unknown citizens into household names overnight. Stories like those of Jessica Lynch, Bernhard Goetz and the DC Sniper victims put previously unknown names on the mind of every American, and Shatner intends to find out how the lives of all those directly affected by these cases have changed forever since becoming front-page news. Aftermath with William Shatner takes viewers back to these dramatic events through exclusive access to the newsmakers at the heart of each case — the heroes, villains, perpetrators (when possible), victims, family members, and law enforcement officials — to dig deep into their stories and separate the fact from the fiction. In every sixty-minute episode, new and often surprising information emerges, not only about these events themselves but about how people’s lives have changed in the years since they made headlines. Stories will include some of the biggest breaking news stories of the last two decades including Jessica Lynch, the DC Sniper victims, the Unabomber, Bernhard Goetz, Mary Kay Letourneau, and the Weaver Family of Ruby Ridge." -- iTunes Store

Episode Summary
In this episode of Aftermath, William Shatner sits down with Bernard Goetz, known to many as the Subway Vigilante. After years of silence on the subject, Goetz now talks openly of the day in 1984 when he shot four African American teenagers on the New York City subway -- but with a bizarre emphasis on the mechanics of how he was able to fire off five shots at four people in such a short burst of time. Hero or criminal? Victim or perpetrator? Goetz wonders whether he would have lived a normal life of marriage and family if fate and notoriety hadn't intervened.
