    A spanner can be a wrench or a pocket tool, Valcura seems to derive from World of Warcraft games, an exemplar is a role model, something worthy of imitation, a death's head moth is a type of moth with skull-like markings, and Ira O'Reilly may refer to Joe O'Reilly, aide-de-camp for the IRA leader Michael Collins.

    LOL, I live in Hampton Roads and this is the first of heard of these guys. I follow the news but not usually Channel 3 so maybe that's why.

    I have to go back and watch the video (see if there's anyone I recognize).

    After watching the video I'm concerned that someone is going to get hurt. They don't carry weapons and never mention being trained in any sort of way to deal with crime.

    BTW, why did they show the guy in shadow after they had already given his name, showed his face, and let him state that he has a two year old child????

    snip

    I agree. Has all the markings of a thing that won't end well.
