Must have been some sort of training exercise.

Or a warning ... I would stay away from any group of young people these days, so many of them hopped up on energy drinks, marijuana, booze, crack, and whatever random prescription drugs they can steal or buy online or forge scrips for or buy from dirty pharmacists - not to mention "bath salts" (look it up) and the synthetic marijuana, all of these things affect the brain in ways that have never been adequately tested in combination.... scary scary stuff, and it doesn't leave me optimistic for our future.
