Posted on 08/13/2014 2:57:08 AM PDT by MeshugeMikey
The Federal Aviation Administration issued a temporary flight restriction on Tuesday for an area surrounding Ferguson, M0., the town where a police officer fatally shot an unarmed 18-year-old black man, after a St. Louis County police helicopter was fired upon Sunday night.
The flight restriction was issued Tuesday at 1:15 p.m. local time. The reason for the notice is TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES.

Not sure about all the facts related to shooting the “unarmed” boy but if the blacks keep the “fires burning” and looting, etc. continues, there will be many more black boys laying dead in the streets.
The “Street Rats” will continue doing what they do and the police will continue doing what the have to do.
Yep and al & jessie will fan the flames along with that idiot attorney.
This was much ado about nothing. It was called off by 4:00 PM.
And there were no reports of shots fired at a police chopper.
All they need is to link up with ISIS, and have a few shoulder mounted stinger style missiles delivered to MO.
“What was Ahmmeds e-mail bro.?”
Or maybe this is to keep News choppers out of the area.
There are rumors of cell phone disruption in the area too.
Anybody see any DHS mobile command centers yet ?
I don’t ever remember seeing on in a black neighborhood.
“And there were no reports of shots fired at a police chopper.”
Brian says otherwise.
“The decision to request the FAAs help in securing flight restriction was made immediately when our St. Louis County Police helicopter was fired at multiple times on Sunday night, St. Louis County police spokesman Brian Schellman told The Daily Caller.”
News reports when the flight restriction was called off 2 hours later stated otherwise.
They said that it was standard flight restriction to allow police copters unemcumbered access without running into looky-loos.
If they were only shooting at the police copters then why restrict civilian planes that they weren’t shooting at???
Furthermore if there was shooting going on then why call it off after only 2 hours.
Brian is mistaken
Is this the beginning of the long hot summer?
I certainly hope it doesn’t spread to Deeetroit.
Brian is the official Police spokesperson, the PIO for that organization. News iorganizations are not official sources.
Plus, there have been more than one set of NOTAMS issued pertaining to flight restrictions, and they were not canceled after 2 hours.
All I could recall was the video and pictures from Egypt when the Cairo riots happened a few years ago and the protestors all had green laser pointers and had completely bathed the military helicopter over Tahrir Square with green lights.
The FAA says they’re a distraction, if there are hundreds of them pointed at a chopper, I have to imagine that pilot is damn near flying blind.
This is what happens when the president thinks he can direct day to day activities of all federal agencies.
Instead of rounding up the attackers, he handcuffs the police.
The surge isn’t working!
They’re human beings and the ultimate victims of LBJs racist Great Society mission carried out via liberals like Obama. We should pity them and do all we can to help fix the misery imposed by Democrat policies. They’d make great allies against the state, its elites and illegal immigration.
And that idiot attorney general. Remember the race baiting he did during and after the Saint Skittles affair.
it seems a bit.....lame to me.
no news as to any arrests on the copter shooting event as far as Ive been able to see,
there may be,.....mooselims...among the rioters...?
I hate to say this...but it may have been planned...
got to keep whitey in line ya know....
seriously..it may be a short long hot summer...but it will be a hot season regardless
if its already been determined that they have already used weaponry that could hit a copter....all bets are off as to what level of munitions may be waiting in the wings.
jas there been on word from the”President” asking for saner heads to prevail?
Watching this disaster unfold and waiting for some enterprising conservatives to move forward with a message of hope and redemption, just as our Lord and Savior would. We have the solutions. It’s worth the fight.

That’s what we need to be about. Let’s fight and win. Now is the time.
Treat it like the Israelis treat Gaza. Obliterate the point of origin of the gunfire.
Common sense would indicate that to be an excellent response.
Common sense did I say..../s
It's the coolest summer in my memory. Open windows most nights, little need for the central AC.
Oh, THAT kind of hot...
Same here....... we had september in JUly
Why weren't the "unarmed children" firing on helicopters shot on sight?
Change the flight rules instead?
Perhaps no one with a moral compass and a loaded weapon was in the viciinity
