    Bummer of a day, Rats have earned a bad name due to bad circumstances. Well I’m sure they earned a bad name before that, but it’s just going to spiral out of control now.

    A lot higher body count than we knew.

    He might be premature in saying the rats are “driven out” of Endtown. So, the score at this point is 21 one dead and 72 injured streetsiders, and…THREE rats dead? Violence takes seconds to unleash, but much longer than that to regret.

    One wonders how the rats did it, given how small the average clip is. Maybe it was like Clint Eastwood in Where Eagles Dare where he fired an MP-40 for about 30 minutes total, never reloading or changing the barrel. (We didn’t get to see the ammunition cart that must have been following him around, either…)
    .
    An M-67 could easily do what they see there, but the rats weren’t shown with anything but submachineguns.

    You can cause a lot of damage to tightly grouped people. Take the sort of recent incident at the Empire State Building. 16 shots fired, 9 bystanders wounded, 3 directly hit, and they weren’t even grouped mob style.
     
    Hold the trigger down, sweep and control the muzzle rise, and aim at a group, you’re going to have a lot wounded or dead.
     
    Also going to have to agree with rickD, the Rats executed a hasty retreat and regroup, but they’re far from being driven out.

    Note the very small size of the rats
    This modifies some of your stats
    For the guns are not stock
    And it’s therefore no shock
    Their capacity’s larger than that

    These are pellet-sized bullets, it seems
    No doubt cooked up in Prof Mallard’s dreams
    If that origin’s true
    Who knows what they could do?
    (Besides rip lives apart at the seams)

    Regretably, my speculation on the character of the ammo used by the Rats (particularly large bullets in otherwise small pistol cartridges) would result in them being disproportionally destructive to the smaller than average human resident of Endtown. So much so that any single shot into the crowd would likely create multiple victims, all with devastating wounds. And if the Rats were fast on the reloads, each could have gotten off a hundred or more rounds. (I’m assuming the magazines held at least 50 rounds each) In full automatic fire, some poor soul would easily get several hits, then those in the background would also get hit by the over-penitrating slugs.

    Being that Arron is telling the tale, the Rat crisis is far from over (above the HC plot and all that).

    This wasn’t a tragedy that ‘just happened’. It’s a deliberate agenda by someone in power. I’m shocked by the body count. The person in power is evidently not, and is evidently planning to thurn up the pressure even more.
    WHAT is the agenda, at this price???

    “Has Wally lost weight?”

    It’s the fur. His body is subconsciously making him into a smaller target. (Plus, he hasn’t eaten in 2 weeks.)

    I mentioned the other day, in the post about all of Endtown being in the middle of a giant schism syndrome seizure, that there’s a second possibility that involves the rats being used as patsies. Doc Chase alludes to it in panel 3.

    Surfstuff55: I gave an answer yesterday here at Endtown re Hillel or Akiva. * Everyone:* Are we absolutely certain three rats are dead? On May 2, 2013 we saw one rat down, probably with fatal injuries, and another seemingly running for the elevator where he died. One more rat was thrown into the bar. It seemed he was clubbed with a bottle and tossed through a window. I think it is possible he survived and bartender is hiding him.

    One, it would indicate not everyone but Doc, Wally and the Nurse had lost their senses.

    Two, I have a little problem thinking ANeathery would bring in a new character, a rat named Ben, and kill him off so soon.
