IT’S NOT A GAME, WE DON’T HANDLE IT AS A GAME, SOCIETY DOESN’T SEE IT AS A GAME, WE’RE HERE TO KEEP THEM SAFE, AND THAT’S WHAT WE WANT TO DO, AND ANY THREAT THAT IS POSTED LIKE THAT, WE’RE GONNA LOOK INTO AS A SERIOUS THREAT, AND WE’RE GONNA FILE ON THAT PERSON. EVERY CHARGE WE CAN FILE ON ‘EM TO INSURE, THAT THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN AS COPYCAT OFFENSE, ANOTHER TIME.”
