[quote:Anonymous Coward 1153822:MV8xMjk3NzEyXzIxMjQyMDI1XzZBM0Y1Njcy] [quote:Anonymous Coward 1203976] ok.. I will break it down for the challenged here.. BLINDING THE PILOT... what kind of damage would that have done if the chopper went down. Good I hope bubba finds a new friend.. Well it takes some stupidity to shine a laser pointer at a chopper no doubt.. but prison sentences in the US, as a whole, are way too high, especially for victimless crimes. Time to move to Europe. Don't get 10 years for smoking pot. [/quote] That I do agree with you on.. our Prison times are insane.. [/quote]
