    Can't believe the cop called them "professionals". LOL.
    Glad they are fine and I hope they learned their lesson!

    Plebes do stupid things every year...that's why when they are called on the carpet they use the excuse "plebe stupid."

    You seem overly curious about their identities.

    Perhaps before we all grab our pitch-forks and torches, demanding a trail by mob to determine if this witch really did turn someone into a newt, we can all simply assume this was a rookie mistake by someone not familiar with the intricacies and etiquette of social forums, and simply request they refrain from such action in the future. Perhaps even by PM.

    But, then again, you know me. I always liked a good witch-burning, especially when the case for their witch-ness is proven because they weigh as much as a duck (which means they must be made of wood. Watch "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" if you found these references confusing.)

    Or, like the Constable in "Young Frankenstein" said: "A riot is an ugly thing....
    And is about time WE'VE HAD ONE!!!!" (of course, he said it in an outrageously fake German accent) :biggrin:

    Good point.

    By the by, I called WP and got their names quite easily. Apparently it was CDTs Nunya & Business.

    Yep, they should be plenty embarrassed.
    OTOH if they were civilians their names would have been released to the press and they probably would have received a bill from the NYPD. Just saying........

    I heard they were called Plebe One and Plebe Two.... I think Dr Seuss wrote something about them a while back!
