Mississippi man, who shunned spotlight, recalls alleged 1973 incident with UFO
FoxNews.com/AP ^

Posted on 10/11/2013 11:41:43 AM PDT by RoosterRedux

At the Jackson County Sheriff's Department, deputies initially suspected both men were drunk.

Then-Capt. Glenn Ryder, who still works for the sheriff's office, said he laughed at the report, but met with the men. Parker and Hickson stuck to their story.

After the formal interview, deputies left Hickson and Parker together in a room with a hidden tape recorder, hoping to catch them in a lie.

"Me and the other investigator got up and left to let them talk, to see if they were going to say, `Well, we got them fooled,' but they didn't," Ryder said. "They were really concerned."

On the tape, Hickson tells Parker, "It scared me to death too, son. You can't get over it in a lifetime. Jesus Christ have mercy."

"I don't know what happened to them," Ryder said. "I wasn't there with them, but I know you don't fake fear, and they were fearful. They were fearful."

The next afternoon, the story was splashed across the front pages of newspapers in Pascagoula and Gulfport. Overnight, Pascagoula became a magnet for news reporters and UFO investigators.

Sometimes I really have to wonder about the UFOs, Personally if they do exist i don’t think they have any good intentions for us.

So far, it seems like they are treating us like a lesser species.

The good news is that as you become a more evolved species, you stop mismanaging the species you are monitoring.

Hickson needed three shots of liquor from a bottle in his car to calm his nerves before deciding to report what happened.

I suspect they had more than a couple of shots before seeing "the UFO"

Sorry but i've heard too many "coon stories" to believe this tale.

For our urban friends, a coon story is akin to a tall tale, with a smiggon of truth told, usually to entertain but somethimes to draw in the unsurspecting stranger(read: city slicker, yankee city slicker is best)"

Jerry Clower was the best example of telling coon stories.

I remember that case, lots of BS and black magic around the story.

Not sure if i believe in UFO’s or not, but I do find the stories interesting.

I figure after the election in 2008, our planet should be classified as a non intelligent indigenous life planet

Maybe they have something like a prime directive, non-interference rule similar to science fiction speculation.
A good friend had a close encounter with four foot tall bipedal creatures in Alaska, around 1968. He was 16 at the time and was so frightened he ran through the front door of his parent's home, destroying it. He was so shook up they reported it to the cops who took photos of the footprints left behind by the "visitors". It even made the local paper and he was teased about for years afterward.
He will retell the story after prodding, but while doing so chokes up, starts sweating profusely and stammering. He also drew a sketch of the critters, which resemble the greys of Roswell fame.

Yep.

From having read the John Mack accounts of abductees, I'm not sure these said aliens aren't interfering.

Abductees are deeply traumatized by their experiences.

My cousin, an intelligent man who owns a successful company, saw something with his brother in one of the fields of our family homestead. Must’ve been when he was about 15 — in the ‘60s. He doesn’t like to talk about it and won’t go into details.

P.S. No matter what is or isn’t outthere, God is in control.

An example of an coon story:

“Cow tippin’”

Anyone who has handle cattle knows there is no such thing.
Been working with cattle since I was twelve and they always heard me coming no matter how quietlty I crept(I’ve tried)

Sneaking up on an herd of cattle is as likely as encoutering an UFO in the middle of Manhatten.

And to think a healthy cow would stand stil and allow itself to be pushed over is so absurb only a fool or and urban dweller would believe such. Anyone who claims they’ve done it is pulling your leg.

Tippin’ one over is as likely as choppin a tree with blow.

Unless of course, you’re Paul Bunyon..

This is true, brother.

I don't argue there is no such thing as alien life(the universe is of an infinitive nature) but to think that an species that has to be so intelligent to overcome all the difficulties of space and time just to arrive here, would come just to bore round holes in cattle, or give anal probes to "Bubba" and his half witted cousin outside of BumF**k, USA or use them as intermediates to say "Hello, we heeeeere!"is wildly beyond belief.

I need hard proof, not fuzzy pictures or the half remembered tales of events long ago.

An chunk of wreckage(I'm told there's several sites around the world) that no earth bound being could create would do nicely.

But no "coon stories" need apply.

To think an intelligent being travels across the travails of space and time... ...to give anal probes to "Bubba" and his half witted cousin outside of BumF**k, USA is wildly beyond belief.

.... My father was a retired Air Force pilot and used to tell me of some very peculiar stuff that he saw .... My son has done 3 tours in Iraq and is now at an undisclosed location in the ME .... He has access to the latest and greatest military grade night vision technology out there .... he says when he gets bored at night he sometimes takes his night vision apparatus out and watches the fireworks in the sky .... including strange unexplainable events that him and his buddies have seen. I used to make fun of a lot of this stuff until one night when I was at a youth camp with my family and about 50 youth in the mountains .... while singing campfire songs in front of a huge bonfire ...... Ironically ...... in the midst of singing "She'll be Commin' Round the Mountain" ..... we all looked up and witnessed a huge triangular shaped piece of machinery very slowly move overhead blocking out the starfield behind it covering about a quarter of the sky as it slowly passed overhead.

Like I say .... I used to make fun of those little green men stories ... and heck, because I am a sceptic still do, but what we all saw that night was a huge piece of machinery from somewhere. My guess is ... undisclosed technology without those little green men. But it was quite curious to witness such a thing! I guess since it was quite unidentified that it does qualify as a so called UFO .... so I suppose they really do exist in my opinion.

BTW .... there was zero drinking, and zero drugs being used at that religious youth camp!

Only humans are fallen. Satan was thrown from the heavens down to earth. Evil is here. They do not understand evil. They are afraid of this place or are not allowed to come here. Read C.S. Lewis’ space trilogy and you will understand, if in fact they do exist. I’m open to it, but don’t think about it much. I concentrate on the Return of the Great King. Maybe then they’ll be able to visit without us killing them.

I think that if they've mastered interstellar travel, they have neither good nor bad intentions for us. "Uninterest" would be my likeliest assumption.

For instance, you might be aware of the ants in your driveway, but you're not going to try to sit down and have a conversation with them.

So long as the alien equivalent of an 8-year-old with a magnifying glass doesn't come along, we'll be fine. :-)

I wish just once that someone would provide a single piece of physical evidence so this question could be answered. Earlier this year I saw my first UFO and all I can say for sure is that it was very strange, not like anything I have ever seen before. I can’t say it was aliens. I do hope it was not aliens as it means that we humans have some high technology that the public isn’t aware of. I saw them seven times over the course of 10 days. They are surprisingly hard to get on film.

You'll never find a piece of absolutely unequivocal physical evidence that aliens (actually spirits, of various kinds) exist, just like you'll never find a piece of absolutely unequivocal physical evidence that God exists. But both exist.

I've never put much stock in UFO sightings (except for the Rendlesham Forest event and a few others). Abduction reports on the other hand are quite interesting.

Many folks liken the abduction angle to demonic possession (there are many common facets).

Yep. I also think the alien thing is a facade or cover but what would otherwise be considered demonic or fallen angels.

Even Allen Hynek even came to see aliens as being extra-dimensional and not extraterrestrial. Funny thing too, because when he first got involved with the entire idea of aliens, he was a hardcore skeptic.
