THE HUMAN BEHAVIOR EXPERIMENTS
We approach this incident today to determine the culpability of the incident that transpired at McDonalds in Mt. Washington KY on the said date.

The levels of action taken by the perpetrators were taken without question. “He sounded like a cop” is the defense. If someone claiming to be a police officer...
