Doesn’t exactly invite one to dive in, does it?
A New Jersey man has been charged with criminal mischief for using a drone to dye the water in a motel’s swimming pool (https://abc7chicago.com/swimming-pool-pools-drone-faa/13743574/). The dye turned the water a bright neon green. This happened about a dozen times and cost the motel thousands of dollars to drain and re-fill the pool.
Police say he also did it to a neighbor in a private home.
WHY did he do it? Well, police aren’t sayin’ and neither is his lawyer. The FAA got involved, but they’re not sayin’, either.
People are definitely getting weirder. I mean, this was one hellacious prank for an adult human being to pull, over and over again. Maybe a couple of badly-behaved seventh-graders might think it was a cool thing to do. But we are supposed to grow out of that.
There seem to be a lot of stories in the news like this one. What’s going on? Have we debased our popular culture to the point where now it’s debasing us back?
