I don't know what kind of camera he used but it was nothing fancy, just a standard point and click. I downloaded the photos from the e-mail he sent me and posted them to photobucket. You are free to believe they are faked photos if you like, I have no reason to believe that they are.

I'm happy to do so if you want to view them that way. I have no idea why there is no EXIF data and do not know how to look for EXIF data myself. If you want to believe that there is a giant screen broadcasting a football game, hovering directly above the crowd at a near 80-90 degree angle, be my guest!
Photobucket automatically shrinks all images to a size of 1024x768 pixels unless you go hunting for upload options. Photobucket does differ from some of the other services in its upload process, however: while images are limited to 5MB in size, the service will never reject uploading an image. It will simply shrink it.

Why are originals so great?
To understand this, you need to understand what originals are, and how they are stored on our site. Your original photos are your photos in their original state when uploaded from your PC/Phone/Camera, without any resizing or compression done to them. Previous Pro account holders were able to upload their high resolution photos, and they would be stored on the site for accessing at any time, and their web-size copies created would be larger than allowed for the free users.
With your originals always stored for all users on Photobucket, you will always have those memories available to download and view whenever you'd like, in their original unaltered state. Preservation of those memories is the heart of what we're about here at Photobucket.
Originals on the New Photobucket - Your original size photos (up to 20MBs) will now be stored for all users on the new site. Web-size copies of the originals will still be created, and those will be the images you are allowed to edit, and link out to other sites. Original size images are only available for downloading. You cannot edit or link out the original size images.

You do a good line in bullshit!
Can you prove these images are legitimate? They fail ELA, in my opinion, and they have been stripped of EXIF data!
Can you prove there was a helicopter in the sky? Can you hear it? So fucking what if there was a helicopter? Oh look a helicopter, let's go into rapture and wave these here flags! Fuck off!
