ENE News ^ | April 21, 2013

WATE: Authorities are investigating after a security guard was fired upon at the Watts Bar Nuclear Power Plant. It happened around 2 a.m. today on the TVA property near the Tennessee River about a quarter mile from the plant's protected area. Officials say the security officer was patrolling the area when he was shot at, he returned fire and was uninjured. The shooting lead the Watts Bar plant staff to declare an unusual event, which is the lowest of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's four emergency classifications. The FBI will also be sending a team. A suspect has not been found.

I have fished many-a day at Watts Bar Lake. One of my favorite places on earth. I love Spring City. It is very rural and very conservative. The Scopes trial was held not to far away. Interesting that the Tenn River is navigable from there to the Miss River.( I know too lazy to spell !!! )

Enviro fascists are probing. Imagine them setting a nuclear plant to go critical.

Odds are that it was some midnight hunter that strayed a bit too close to the plant. Return fire sent him running.

Just so y’all know, there are armed personnel ALL OVER inside the plant proper, and they have some really big weapons available. These guys are semi-military.

I spent the good part of a day in a nuke last year - very secure. They even had pill boxes on the roof.

The guy was lucky that all he got was return fire from a sidearm.

My brother works at a nuclear plant. After 911, security was beefed up A LOT. I’m not going to say anything more on the subject.

Up here in Canada I on occasion visit some of our nuclear plants for work, and yeah security is serious business there, lets say almost military level personnel and equipment. So I find it surprising that there was a lone guard on patrol in this incident, maybe security levels vary from plant to plant.

"The liberal lefties are already hoping it’s 'a white guy'."

"liberal lefty" = the opposite of a truth-seeker.

Truth for its own sake is not even a consideration for these people.

OK, we may be under attack by greenshits, but we’re still
under attack.

I expect POSHITUS to escape to Hawaii any minute.

Yeah...and don’t forget earlier last week there was a substantion vandalized? Is that the same thing?

Could be attempts to take down the grid?
