Yeah, that's it, bring in the detectives and the PD and hunt down the terrorist sniper. Frikkin' ninnies. And nannies. If I had a dollar for every time I got hit by a BB when I was a kid, I could have bought a bike.  BB gun sniping was a hilarious prank, inevitably escalating into BB gun wars. "Ouch!", they sting, that'll teach you to stay behind a tree, sucker. LOL, no parent would have even had the thought that it was a good idea to call in the police and launch an official investigation. Call in the FBI to figure out which mudstained brat fired the first shot? Then what? Make him stay in his room? Make him write "I will not shoot BBs at Bobby" 100 times? LOL, I'd have just switched to the slingshot. The feminization of America marches forward. Forward!
