Suspicious Man In Inflatable Boat With Unknown Device Chained To Neck Close To Surrey, VA Nuclear Power Plant Scrambles Bomb Squad, Sniper Team

Tyler Durden's picture


From NBC:

Suspicious Man Reported Near Va. Nuke Plant

A man in a boat has a suspicious device attached to himself several miles away from the nuclear power plant in Surry, Va., according to officials.

A Virginia State Police representative said that there is a man on a boat or a raft on the James River, according to WTVR-TV in Richmond.

John Bull of the Virginia Marine Resources Commission said that the Surry nuclear power plant is about 2.5 miles away from where the man is, and that there is no indication that the plant is a target.

The man is in an inflatable boat and drifting with the current, Bull said. He has a metal chain around his neck and the chain is attached to a black box.

At 7 a.m. a commercial crabber was tending to his crabs and noticed the man in the inflatable raft. He went closer but not too close and asked if the man needed assistance, Bull said. The man reportedly said no.

The crabber notified authorities. The Coast Guard and Virginia Marine Police responded immediately.

Bull said officials have a bomb squad and snipers near the scene out of caution. He said they have tried talking to the man, and that he is coherent and lucid at times, but that it does not last for long.

The airspace around the incident is closed, according to WBBT in Richmond, and boaters are being rerouted around the scene.

I was thinking it might be an attempt for campaign publicity by Newt Gingrich.  He opens the box and a flag comes out which says "Boom!!".  Then says "My third wife told me this gag wouldn't work".

I just thank god for the men and women in uniform who are ordered to guard us from dangerous meneses like this, and that is why I feel so strongly about regulating or banning sand and rubber boats.

If the tight wads in Washington would free up more money, we could properly combat this sort of threat.

Eat fish taken from the James river at your own peril. Back in the 80's some nice little company up in Richmond dumped tons of toxic kepone in the river. Its still in the river bed.

Between Surry (no e) and Jamestown, the only way across the river is by ferry. They won't build a bridge because they don't want to stir all that crap up.

Japanese governments FAQs for People Living Outside the Fukushima Evacuation and In-house Evacuation Areas

Click the link below to read an incredible work of misinformation that will surely--at a future point in time--become forensic evidence used in a lawsuit against TEPCO and the Japanese government for criminal negligence.

By using this document, the Japanese government is trying to talk down the Fukushima problem and assure people that there is absolutely nothing to worry about, which we know is total hogwash because even small dosages of radiation are said not to be safe (and the dosages Japanese are getting are NOT small). Some of the goggle translated 22 FAQs and answers include (read here):

The guy was probably sitting out there trying to decide whether to kill himself. Box filled with sand. Chain around neck. Sitting in boat. It is sad and pathetic but has nothing to do with the government--except that another boater calls it in and zoom, out come the helicopters. If they ignored it, people would be all over them for dereliction of duty. I'm glad the guy is alive and maybe has a chance to think again.

What is disturbing is The Heavyhanded Official Response to every little thing some retard does somewhere, anywhere, in fact. Have People In Authority too damn little actual work to do these days (and too many expensive toys to play with while passing the time before retirement with full salary)? Maybe the government has so many ressources dedicated to "the war on terror" that they are falling over each other like the Keystone Cops whenever there be one opportunity, however ridiculous the odds are, to defeat a terr-ist attack?

Forensic analysis:

How big is the boat?

How big is the box?

Is it bigger than a lunchbox?

Is it, in fact, a lunch box?

Is it a Halal lunchbox?

Is the man just peacefully shouting "Alluah Akbar" as he heads for the Nuclear power plant?

Is the response team just being Islamophobic

Didn't Obama just prevent all future man-made disasters by throwing Israel under the bus?

The man has not been identified, but Lt. Scott McBride of the U.S. Coast Guard said he is in his 30s. After the raft was towed to shore in Surry County, the box - approximately 2 feet by 1 foot - was determined to contain sand. No charges against the man have been announced.

Soviets got good mileage out of that charge.

Anyone who had a problem with the worker's paradise of the Soviet Union was classified as mentally ill.

I would bet money that is a policy that will re-emerge as the US completes its journey into becoming a socialist police state.
