On this episode we also touch upon the tragic events in Las Vegas. As mentioned in our intro, this episode was recorded just a couple of days after the event occurred. As such, we did not have all of the details as to what transpired. We try our best to talk about it without going into conspiracy theories, politicizing things, or standing on a soapbox. It's a horrible thing that happened. Our hearts go out to those affected by it and hopefully some answered are found in all of the chaos.

With use of constant stalking, brawling and inside fighting, he developed the reputation for being a 'bully', he was what is often referred to today as a swarmer and a slugger.
