Police Helicopter crashes in Atlanta

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.

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 Brothers...
The other night there was a loud argument in the hall outside my apartment while I was trying to sleep. I went out and told them they better leave or I was gonna use some Kung-Fu... THAT scared them off...

Plus I was totally nekkid and holding a gun.
