I hear ya on day one McQueen. I've come to notice that nine times out of ten the day one lynch is town. So why does everybody insist upon having a lynch? With odds like that I'd say not losing a townmember as opposed to losing one would be better in my book. Unless of course you're scum than it would be perfect.
Anyways, RKO seems legit. I have nothing to base this off of of course, cuz it's day one, but I'm guessing he's just a victim of circumstance.
