And you would have done it in a better way and that would have made you smart while you call them idiots and dopes.
It is implied here that it was not the act but the fact they got cought that makes them dopes and idiots.
So, explain the smart way you would hve done the deed.
Is there a school one can go to. so one can be smart about it?
Maybe a bigger gun, nah, don't think that would work.
There is more here than is implied in this report. They beat the crap out of this guy what?
