Venezuela, revolting, sickening news...

when I think that a chopper pilot has been part of this... makes me want to puke.

Le Venezuela enquête sur le massacre présumé d'une tribu - Yahoo! Actualités France

for those not speaking french... (sorry can't find english media relating this sad fact) an entire Tribe in Venezuela (80 persons, men, women and children) has been murdered in the amazonian forest near the Brazil border gunned down from a helicopter... as reported by three members of this tribe who were hunting nearby and heard the helicopter and the shooting...

I have a more noble idea of helicopter use... Hope they find the culprits soon and even if I know it will not be of any help, as a member of Humanity I feel ashamed... and (may be I am too naive) shocked to see a pilot can use his skills to do such an horror...

Safe flying all. Al

a quick scan of the news sites seems to suggest this Reuters report is the origin of the news

the only adjective for these types of crimes against humanity is unspeakable

I also can't believe a pilot can fly a mission like that-that's inconceivable

this story will upset me at least the rest of the week

Really? Inconceivable? Did we live a sheltered life?

Most woudn't have survived my life---trust me...

I carried a gun at twelve had innumerable fights...had a gun pulled on me and I've seen many shootings and riots gang wars drug wars many people [many I didn't like any way] are dead or serving terms in prison---and actaully for a year I did lead a sheltered life in a homeless shelter as a young kid becuase of my mom's stupidity

Anymore asshole comments?

inconceivable means unimaginable
As a pilot myself---I can't imagine it...get it...

Come now.. Did all those men of Bomber Command in WWII have "black hearts"? Did the crew of the Enola Gay have "black hearts"?

There is such a weakness in many today.

PA:

Since, per your protestation, you weren't sheltered one has only two possibilities to consider.

1. Despite your upbringing you are mentally weak.

2. You are naive enough to believe that people smart enough to be pilots can't be bad people.

Either way, your week is messed up and mine isn't

You're turn to be an asshole...

Grow up...

You found it "inconceivable" that pilots could do "bad things"...

Step away from the beer....

C'mon guys! Everyone is on the same page as to the horrendous nature of this act. We don't need to degrade this into personal attacks, really?

Take a breather....chill out.

Sorry CoF:

It's not a personal attack. It's the apparent belief that pilots are above questionable acts. Pilots, like us all, are human. To believe anything different is delusional.

Honestly.....if you both step back, tomorrow or the next day, then re-read this, you will see that initially, you both were on the same side regarding the topic. Semantics in wording are a slippery slope.

Now....back to topic. The motive for such a massacre. Will we ever know given the country that instigated it? I have doubts. But there's a sinister story, me thinks.
