You're pretty new and haven't contributed much here, yet you know about "every time"? If you don't like conspiracy theories, you're in the wrong place bub.
For all the kooks here that see a conspiracy in everything:
"Something was wrong..."
"...attributed to power steering leak..."
NO there wasn't any drones. (WTF?!) NO the guvment wasn't trying to kill Paul. Every time a celebrity dies, all the wackos come out of the woodwork claiming an insidious conspiracy. GEEZ! It's exactly what I thought it was at the beginning! I used some logic and reason to deduce that Roger Rodas most likely would not have lost control of the car unless a mechanical failure occurred. Speed combined with no steering, plus possibly (given the stalling issue) a fuel rail leak cause this. I would hazard a guess that the fire started before impact, possibly around the same time the steering failed. He (Rodas) probably barely had time to hit the brakes before slamming into a light pole, spinning and hitting the tree broadside. They most likely died on impact, mercifully, I might add. Burning to death is not a pleasant way to go.
Why is a drone strike "idiocy"? We know a few things as fact. 1. Drones are patrolling our skies. That's not disputable. 2. The law allows for the killing of American citizens without trial and when they are considered a "threat". That too is not disputable. 3. Arming of these drones has been discussed and may have been implemented. So moving along, the conspiracy of whether or not a drone strike killed Paul Walker is just as fathomable as the brake line being tampered with, because of the new paradigm. Bub

A) I've been a spectator on here for quite a while before I decided to throw my hat into the ring, and
B) I've noticed an overwhelming amount of wild conspiracies not contained to this site, including YouTube. Crazy nutter stuff alleging a hollow earth or lizard people, celebs faking their deaths or being assassinated. And while I enjoy a good, realistic conspiracy, that brings me to point...
C) There's a distinct difference between conspiracy and moronic, drooling, drinking the bongwater gibberish. For example, saying somebody may have tampered with the car, messed with the steering or brakes. That's conspiracy. Saying that a drone bombed the car? That's idiocy.

Why don't you post that "new footage"?
reply to post by Bilk22
There's a difference between a 'conspiracy' and just flat out make believe. Anyone who subscribes to anything other than a car wreck isn't using critical thinking. There's new footage from a CCTV camera showing fire and smoke only. There's evidence of power steering fluid leakage prior to the crash, there's skid marks, there's a tree leaning to one side. But no, it must be a drone strike right? A drone strike not in the street mind you, but right beside a tree where a car isn't supposed to be.
Let's consider the facts that we do know and not issues we have no idea of. The driver of the car was a professional. He wasn't a street racer. He was a professional racer, expert in the handling of powerful cars. Another witness claimed they saw the car traveling about 45mph and not the excessive speed one might expect from seeing the wreckage. The location of the accident was less than a mile from where it originated from. It did not occur on a long straight but was in fact, a few hundred feet from a 90 degree turn. There were no skid marks. The cars Hastings and Walker were in are not know for exploding as they did in these two instances. Both drivers were respected members of the community and not thrill seekers out for a hell bent ride. All of them, including Walker had a lot to lose and none of them were young and reckless. These are known facts and point toward what can be considered erratic and unexpected actions we are expected to believe came from these individuals. Things don't add up. In addition, there is the video which does show something that isn't expected and does appear to be a "projectile".

Not to be rude or anything, but methinks you are a tad too paranoid for your own good. Let's just say for the sake of argument that Michael Hastings was killed by a drone. Didn't he get a General fired? Wasn't he pissing off the FBI? He apparently made some government enemies, so I could see him being taken out.
That being said, I do NOT think hee (Hastings) was killed by a drone either. I merely bring this up as an example of motive. I feel drones are a huge evil and sure to be used against us here eventually.
Back to Paul walker. He wasn't a journalist pissing off powerful men in D.C.. He also wasn't (as far as anyone knows) involved in anything highly illegal or controversial. He did a lot of charity work worldwide and so far I have yet to read an article with someone saying, "That Paul Walker was a real douche. The guvment should drone strike his butt."
Now, all I've seen on this thread mentioning drones is a bunch of paranoid rambling. At least I can respect the conspiracy theorist that at least has some questionable photos or video footage, even if I disagree with the assumptions. The fact that drones were even seriously entered into the discussion just shows how far detached from reality some people are.
Let's just view this for what it is: a current event put under Breaking General News, not a conspiracy thread. NObody was out to get Paul. A witness observed a "high rate of speed" and there is possible evidence of mechanical failure. That's it. An unfortunate accident that could happen to anybody who drives a car. Especially fast.

The video is linked to earlier in this thread and in another. It's the same video you posted but highlights the object in question. What ever happened there that day, it wasn't as simple as two guys out doing donuts in the street and then lost control. I read they took the car out because it was stalling periodically and wanted to see if they could figure out why. The car was initially headed for their speed shop garage which is where they were which is pretty much right up the street from where the accident occurred.
