...And in the Streets.
I found it interesting that some places where the drop zones were implemented, that they were either ignored or run over in a matter of minutes. This particular pile was run over twice in three minutes. One of the cars rolling over the toy soldiers had a yellow ribbon on the trunk of the car.
It's a hell of a thing to be run over by a car. I mean you are here one minute and then crunch. Most of my surrogates are expendable and once they are deployed they are expected to fend for themselves. If its not the roadside bums, it being run down by blind idiots with yellow warning ribbons, or professional green-horn truck drivers.
The street proved to be a bad place for deployment. The drop zones are compromised by the complacent masses, and the deployment must move quick as to not become collateral damage and run down in the middle of road.
