Close Call. Some Idiot almost started WW VI* -- the Human Robot war

Police had used a robotic vehicle to send pizza and soda that Prevatt requested to his room Thursday evening. But Prevatt threatened to shoot the robot and did not retrieve the food, Shipley said.

That could have been the "incident" which triggered massive Robotic retaliation.

See the bootleg obtained at great personal risk (not by me).

Fortunately Prevatt didn't actually have a gun.

* using Norman Podhoretz's numbering scheme under which the cold war is WWIII, the War on Terror is WWIV and the new Georgian Cold War is WW V. If he has already declared WWVI I stand corrected.
