    With the “Smith Mundt Act” being reinstated by the last administration of the Washington corporation, how can any news be verified.

    Now, this sounds like a story! Too bad all four of the perps weren’t shot full-o-holes. Can’t wait to read more about to hear the guards’ stories.

    Now Rogelio Gonzalez is going to sue the armored car company. If the car had been easier to break into, then he wouldn’t have been shot.
    If there is a liberal judge that day, they will award millions.
