Unbelievable!

Seemed so unfair. What reason did he even have to search anyway? That didn't make any sense. Seems like some of them are just pushing around their power for no reason. I'm glad they aren't all like that. Didn't catch the whole thing. It started at 14 and stopped around 18...idk why. Maybe I missed something.
