Tapes are not going to be enough.
What do you mean?
I mean they don't have to give you the money, they'll just hunt you down and catch you. Cops don't have to bargain with you, you don't have anything they want. Unless you offer them a trade.

Whatever is that boy doing?
It's a trick, I saw it on TV.
What kind of trade?
I'm going to be your hostage, then they have to reason with you. I'm your guarantee.
Like when you buy a car.
That's a warranty.

I can't believe I've never watched this show before when I was younger. I just saw it on cable. I won't say it has the best plot, story, characters or anything, but there's just this mysterious element that draws us to Billie Jean. All those kids in the film were incredible. My father was watching with me he smiled when he saw that little boy who sent the tape to the police. How cute!
This film does reflect some truths. Some adults simply think that fairness is not for kids. Children are not entitled to justice. But few do stand up against this false belief. That is why Billie Jean is a heroine.
To add, Helen Slater is just so beautiful.
