For a lack of a better word
or term, "dropping" will be used to
describe one of the stupidest
and dangerous action
take to harm or even kill someone.
This action basically involves dropping objects from overpasses onto
motorists as they drive by innocently underneath the
perpetrator. Most often the objects are actually timed to hit the
cars as they drive by. The object can be anything from eggs to
rocks. There have been numerous cases where motorists have been
hospitalized, paralyzed, blinded and even killed because of a
dropped rock. In some cases the driver is killed by the impact of
the rock itself.
The act is so simple, yet has deadly results.
Why are some people so stupid and heartless?
How can they not understand the results of what they do?
One of the stranger versions of this phenomemon involves actually
shooting at motorists as they drive by.
