Also, if this was private property that these idiots were flying their drone, then I believe they people who blasted it had every right to do so.
Wasn't the reporter giving the actual words of the witness?


I still wonder what they do with the dead pigeons.

What do they do with the pigeons that die in the park?

More determined?? Let's see ... RC "drone" versus rifle or shotgun?
Y' know, somthing tells me the drone is gonna lose THIS fight pretty much every time ...
Personally I think the protesters should be charged with trespassing. Would also consider something like voyeurism or peeping tom charges, make them register as sex offenders, LOL

There are reasons that those hot dog carts serve wieners with a flavor that you can't get at home.

So that doesn't mean the are "dumbasses" just not familiar with the particular subject lingo.
"Dumbass" most definitely does fit. Had they simply said that they heard a gun shot, then you'd be right, but it's adjective "sharp" that's the killer. The sound a shotgun makes is FAR from "sharp". It's a big, blunt blast of sound. These people are just begging for attention by statements that are intentionally designed to be newsworthy, not accurate.

Most likely, someone pulled out some "double ought".

how many pigeons die in the park on any given day? I bet not 50 or a hundred die on a saturday january 3rd. This is a wast of lif or if the birds could feed the hungry that should be done.

You obviously have a narrow view of the country if you think this point is worth going off on.

No I have a narrow view of publicity whoring idiots who are so dumb that they can't tell the difference between "BANG" and "BOOM".
