    I saw all those police cars, and now I know why!

    I feel bad for anyone that goes through something lke this incident.
    That being said I hope the police would put out disclaimer at the end. This wouldn’t happen if you observe the posted times for the W&OD. It’s dark and an ambush waiting to happen.

    Walk the trail with a taser (or 2). Get one at the next gun show in Chantilly. Easy peasy.
