why doesn't some REAL authority step in to do an investigation before a lot of suckers get scammed into camping trips, t-shirts, video footage, etc.?
after all, we pay a lot of money to protect stupid people from taking advantage of even stupider people, and while this is hardly the crime of the
century, it is still FRAUD. granted, if your I.D. gets stolen, and the secret service (who you'd have to call, not sure why) tells you they don't
even mess with cases under $200,000 (from personal experience i can say this), chances aren't great a lot of official time and money *should* be paid
to these jokers, though this hoax is too big to ignore. so, to maintain the illusion someone out there is looking out for our best interests, i'm
surprised no official inquires have been made.
indeed, why would a police officer risk his job over this? obviously for the money. i mean, duh, eh? maybe he's a crappy police officer who knows
he's get fired eventually anyway? doesn't meet the minimum i.q. requirements? ha! how many mensa members are on patrol, do you think? the urban
legend is 'they' don't want officers who are exactly intellect heavy. and since when did it ever matter? how many PhDs are out there destroying
whatever reputation they might otherwise have had?
as far as biscardi, once a crook always a crook, don't you think? his presense only undermines the validity of the find. well, that and the fact
these guys didn't almost immediately search out reputable sources, are themselves bigfoot hunters, and have those youtube bits.
as bad as these guys are, we're that much worse for even believing that that one photo is a real bigfoot when it's obviously fake, and not even a
very good one at that.
would i have the presense of mind to contact the proper authorities if i found a significant find? probably not. well, at least not for an hour and a
half. but, okay, say a week. these guys had this thing for a month or more, plenty of time to come up with a game plan ensuring only the best
scientific testing while at the same time retaining their rights to cash in big. how long would it take to figure out you need to get a lawyer? the
average fifth grader would have thought of that the very same day.
doesn't matter, the DNA has been blasted out of the water anyway, which comes as no surprise to. a. single. intelligent. person. using. common.
sense. i blame thehorrordome.com for not providing DNA samples along with their cheesy costume.
