Animal Rights Group Endangers Drone

…Drones have feelings too…

An animal rights group in South Carolina claim that a helicopter drone they were using to film and expose a pigeon shoot was itself shot down by the hunters.

SHARK (SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness), was working to shoot the video when police and an attorney tried to stop them.  But when it was obvious that what they were attempting to do didn’t break any laws the pigeon shoot and its participants packed up to leave.

The group decided to launch their drone anyway, probably just to show off, and once it was airborne, BLAM, shots rang out from the tree line and the drone was hit.

“As an act of revenge for us shutting down the pigeon slaughter, they had shot down our copter,” said group leader Steve Hindi.

Please Continue Shopping, Ignore the Murder Scene

A South Carolina Wal Mart had a very real “clean up on asle four” over the weekend.

Lilia Blandin was stabbed in the middle of the store by her husband, Avery, and died later at local hospital.  Witness report seeing the Blandins get into a verbal argument, that turned physical and then Avery attack his wife with a knife on her chest and neck.

He was hit by a chair by another patron trying to break up the attack, but Avery pulled a 2nd knife and fled the scene in his car. He was captured and arrested.

The Wal-Mart made the decision to cordon off the area of the murder scene with police tape, but kept the remainder of the store open to all for more holiday shopping.
