FAA says FBI asked plane not to fly over Pebble Beach taunting Tiger Woods
Mercury News ^ | 06/28/2010 | Mercury News

Posted on 06/28/2010 9:06:30 PM PDT by The Magical Mischief Tour

MONTEREY - The Federal Aviation Administration confirmed Friday that the FBI did contact the control tower at Monterey Peninsula Airport on Sunday because it was concerned about a plane towing a banner above the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.

FAA spokesman Lynn Lundsford had said that he was unable to locate a record of the request. His colleague, spokesman Ian Gregor, said Friday that the record wasn't found earlier because the call from the FBI went directly to the airport control tower.

Gregor said in the FBI agent who called "expressed some concerns about a banner-tower." The banner read TIGER: ARE YOU MY DADDY?

Why? Is the FBI now concerned with certain people getting their feelings hurt?

This is spooky. Why is big brother so concerned about this when there are far more important things going on. I would like to know more about the chain of FBI agents involved. Did the Golfer in Chief not like the taunts and get involved? If not, lets see credible evidence of terrorism threat.

I’m going to bed but here’s my two cents - if Tiger were gay, or not married, this wouldn’t even be news ...

Yup. Where are all those Tiger fan boys who used to post here? “Hot Tabasco” was a real die hard.

Thanks for the correction. Looks like the FBI is good at supressing 1st Amendment rights but Islamic terroirsm appears to be their blind spot.

No, it would not be news.
Being GAY he would never have married Elin.
He would not have fathered 2 love childs from porn stars if he was gay.
If he was gay NOTHING about his personal life would EVER be exposed.
If he was both the best golf player in the world plus GAY he would have 2 Billion in the bank instead of just 1.

You nailed it.

The FBI is much more concerned with keeping the boss happy, particularly if he's a democrat, than keeping Americans safe.

If I’m not mistaken, a banner is free speech. The FBI has a problem dealing with what it is suppose to be dealing with. It is just another political driven group.

And the FBI's purpose is to enforce good taste? Is Miss Manners the new director?

Yes, it is in very poor taste and classless. The FBI is a law enforcement agency (or is supposed to be) not Miss Manners. If someone wants to make his tasteless and classless opinion public, the FBI has no business trying to stop him.

I don't recall the Supreme Court ruling that poor taste and classlessness was justification to violate someones first amendment rights.

Look, the people that put that sign out there are the lowest common denominator. If you have a real message; fine. Put it out there; but don't sensationalize.

Why do you not like Chihuahuas? I have a chihuahua/min pin mix shelter rescue pup. He’s great and he only barks if he has someone accidentally sit on him, or if he sees another dog. He asserted his dominance over a weimareiner, a golden retriever, a pekingese, a shelty and a blue tick, but with people he is loving and just wants to be petted and snuggled..

No, you are a liar because you claim Tiger uses performance enhancing drugs with 0 evidence. No big deal, you are just a run of the mill liar.

I agree, TiHgHer is the only human to visit a certain Dr that did not receive PEDs from him. Do some research, even 25% of the PGA tour players believe TiHgHer uses. They have been whispering that for 10 years, now its out in the open. Quit worshiping false idols.

Pathetic.

Quit worshiping false idols.

I do not worship anyone currently living. But you need to learn the difference between libel accusations and evidence. Stop reading the Weekly World News and the National Enquirer.

It is not a matter of that. There is no credible evidence that he uses those drugs. There are rumors and inuendos, but no evidence.

When people are full of hate, justifiable or not, they will do anything to exact revenge on those they hate. Been that way since the beginning of our species. But if you want to maintain your grasp of reality, you have to separate the facts from the accusations.

This is the closest I saw to an explanation.

Tactics? What about the Tea Party? What if I wanted to carry a sign or fly a banner (same thing) over a town hall meeting to express my thots about someone or some action. What if a sports team is changing their name or location, am I not allowed to fly a banner saying my thots? I don’t necessarily have to like what the banner says, but don’t we have a right to fly one in a FREE society?

FBI involved in manners? Maybe I need more coffee, but I don’t see any criminal law involved in this—if there was, it would be LOCAL ordinances, and the local police would be asking a pilot to stop flying over golf tournament. Again, why would the FBI wd be brought in preemptively? Because something is in bad taste?~ And since when do they preempt activities anyway?! Don’t they come in after a federal crime is committed? Where is the federal crime? I am not a lawyer, but conspiracy to fly a banner to annoy Tiger is not a Fed. crime?

What I do see is First Amendment violation and very odd tactics. No one cares that much because it was a golf tournament, but what if it was a Tea Party rally?
