    Sounds like an Atlanta PD helicopter has crashed tonight, killing 2. I can't get the link to work since I'm on my phone but I saw it on www.myfoxatlanta.com but they haven't said if the casualties were LEO or civilians on the ground. It crashed into a CVS parking lot while enroute to assist with a dispute. Prayers to those affected.

    Man that sucks. Clipped wires and sounds like they were flying to low.

    They were looking for a missing girl, who was found later.

    I watched the local news as the 'story' was unfolding and had to turn the damn sound off. Those ignorant on scene news people are idiots with what they say to just fill in air time. It was disgraceful to the officers who gave their life.

    RIP.
