" I will kill people!" I think looking at past tragedies this might warrant at least an
interview. NAH! Let's just see what happens!


Where did it say that the cops did nothing?


Where does it say they didn't? But, aside from that I was being facetious.


Well, pinhead if you fly your drone into a person's home don't expect a plate of
warm cookies and a glass of milk waiting for you when you stop by. I mean DUH!!!!!!!!!!!
