Homeland Security Agents Force Plane to Land in San Antonio
WOAI ^ | 1/24/2005 | ElephantinTexas

Posted on 01/24/2005 10:12:18 PM PST by ElephantinTexas

This is my first post so I hope I got it right.

This is breaking here in San Anonio. A single engine plane has been forced down at Stenson Field south of San Antonio. Homeland Security, DPS and SAPD are on the scene. They are waiting for a Chinese tranlator but they have Chinese illegals in custody and said that the pilot was someone Homeland Security has been looking for.

I'll post more as it comes available.

There's a few choices. There is downward looking radar like from an AWACS/JSTAR aircraft from above. You can use a surface search radar (like the Raytheon 1900N) at ground level, that can pick up a plane at 200 feet at 15 miles. And then there are helicopter based radars. They use radars similar to a surface search radar, just are able to get the antenna up to a decent altitude and can move it around for patrols.
Beyond that there are all kinds of whiz bang high tech gadgets (IR for example) which I don't really know much about.

Remember those Sheriff's department DARE programs? "Druggies Are Recruited Endlessly" or "Doing Acid's Really Entertaining," or whatever it meant. When you see a kid wearing a DARE t-shirt, chances are he's the guy who pilfered your stereo...

I dont like it. What were they doing in that plane? Trying to get away?

And what about the two Iraqis that were supposedly involved in all this?

Did anyone watch the movie Dirty War tonight? Scaaary...

America, the greatest nation in history is a nation of immigrants. Immigrants are an asset.

I'm sure you mean legal immigrants, right?

If we had a 40,000 foot high fence across the border they couldn't have gotten over it.

Exactly! How stupid is a wall and all this talk of border security just to keep millions from pouring in illegally, when a two or three can just fly in.

Brilliant!

Around here we have something called an Aerostat. I don't know how it works and it looks like a blimp connected by guy-wires. I know almost all the people who work there but they can't talk.

Funny, Asa Hutchinson resigns and hours later agents are busting illegals!

I have a lot of respect for law enforcement officers, but County Sheriffs and Constables are elected offices.

Unlike police chiefs, they are politicians who have to kiss arse while raising money for campaigns. There is so much opportunity for corruption, and very little chance of anyone being able to do anything about.

Once a plane makes it onto the ground at an isolated dirt landing strip there is nothing the feds can do. The local sheriff or constable is there providing cover.

"The Dems mocked President Bush's Air National Guard service, but his duty was flying interceptor jets on patrols for planes trying to illegally enter U.S. Texas Air space."

Hey great bayourod! You finally posted a response us anti-illegal alien types agreed with. Congratulations, and keep it up.

Chinese helped build the first transnational railroad after the Civil War.

They've had a presence in this relatively young nation for a long time.

If the smuggler was telling the truth, maybe this is the package that was supposed to follow. Guess we will never know though.

They are Chinese GUEST WORKERS, and deserve amnesty.

To treat them any differently than 10 million Mexican GUEST WORKERS would be discriminatory.
