#DroneSlayer took over today’s show

Yesterday, we shared the story about William Meredith, the Hillview man who gunned down a drone flying over his property on Sunday. Meredith claims the drone, which had a camera attached, was hovering over his backyard, where his young daughters were laying by the pool. After he shot it down, the owner of the drone drove up to confront him, and Meredith said if he crossed onto his property, he’d shoot him too.

The story definitely got you guys talking, and today, David, the (alleged) owner of the drone, called in to KSR to give his side of the story, claiming that he and his friends were taking it out on a test run and the drone was simply flying by Meredith’s property, not hovering. David said his drone was only over Meredith’s property for 1.5 seconds, during which time Meredith shot it down. Just as you were starting to take David’s side, he yelled “Go Cards,” taking away any sympathy and accountability. The next caller claimed to know David, and said never to trust anything he says.

Who’s telling the truth: William or David? Was that even the real drone owner? Listen to KSR and judge for yourself. David calls in at the beginning of hour two:

While you’re at it, listen to hour one:

David said he would send Matt the video from the drone, so stay tuned…

    This issue is the terrifying intersection of the paranoid extreme privacy caucus and the paranoid extreme gun rights caucus.

      Educated Extreme Labelling Liberal Tool. There, it’s fixed now.

      8 god – why is the concept of individual rights so frightening to you? That’s just silly.

    Unless William was dove hunting at the time and was ready to fire at anything that moves, it’s complete BS for “David” to say he was only over the property for 1.5 seconds. Nobody has that kind of reaction time. Props to William for shooting that thing down.

    I always side with Cats fans over Cards fans unless it’s for major political office.

    Only 1.5 seconds, huh? Typical Tard logic.

    I found a photo of David and his bros as they were headed to Williams house to harass him.

    I get it and agree with him not wanting a drone flying over his property. That bullet or pellets has to land somewhere though and he is in a residential area. Be responsible with your gun.
