“Yeah and they had drones flying overhead and airplanes and helicopters. All day and all night. It was never quiet, every time you looked down or up the road, there's highway patrol’s cars, sheriff’s cars. I mean there was private trucks, private cars, everywhere. I mean there was no one at camp that had a weapon, there was no alcohol, there was no drugs, nothing.”
