If Ford did initiate some kind of request to retrieve the video from Smith, my hunch is he didn't specifically say "kill". Maybe he said "get the video any way you can" which eventually lead to a murder. What I'm confused about is isn't Basso old friends with Rob, going back to high school? Would he really tell someone to go rough up an old friend/drug buddy? Or did the people who busted into Basso's place do it on their own initiative when they found out that it was his house where the video was filmed?I doubt that Ford would be charged with "Attempted Murder", but I'm pretty confident that any charge against him will begin with the words "Conspiracy to...". It would appear that the police are working their way up the food chain and getting lower-level players to turn on the people who gave them their orders. Essentially, someone will have to testify that Rob (or Doug, or Price) directed them to do a home invasion at 15 Windsor, shoot Smith, etc.
