Covered up by the local news.

They are too busy showing the outrage over an admitted pedohphile. Bloggers have that covered rather well, I think, and I agree with The Armorers sentiments.

Completely ignored by most media outlets. Heaven forbid we admit that something in America might be wrong.

The Earth Liberation Front, a eco terrorist group, has attacked 3 towers since the middle of September.

Those of us in the industry are, of course, paying attention. One of our work sites, after all, could be next. However Earth Liberation Front  fruitcakes tend to stay on the west coast so I’m not sweating bullets about my market.

That being said it’s ironic that several million dollars in communications equipment can be completely

demolished…and no one says a word save for a few inner industry publications.

They do not seem to realize just what it is they do by attacking these towers. it is not only your cellphone service they interrupt.  It’s also the ability for 911 services just as OnStar to locate your vehicle, for Emergency Service to use your cellphone location to find you during a 911 call, they take away the ability for lives to be saved.

How bright are these guys?

From their responsibility statement:

AM radio waves cause adverse health effects including a higher rate of cancer, harm to wildlife, and that the signals have been interfering with home phone and intercom lines. When all legal channels of opposition have been exhausted, concerned citizens have to take action into their own hands to protect life and the planet

Uhm…hello? Intercom’s?

Who the hell even has a intercom anymore??

So what these folks are endorsing is freelance vigilantism.

We have a guy who is an admitted pedophile. He gets a fair shake, and is held to be a wonderful man.

But damn those AM, FM and CDMA towers! We gotta STOP them! To hell with the people diddling little kids, we hafta STOP those steel toothpicks man! Hey pass me the bong will ya Cheech?

Morons.

This one’s two weeks old. RBBH is from the PNW. Follow stuff out there so as to know what NOT to talk about with the ILs.

3 million in damage is the number I read about. And, the jagoffs didn’t realize that there was a back up transmitter and tower. They didn’t do anything but waste $3m of someone else’s money. The radio station’s been in the valley there for 30 years.

Yeah, the ELF and the ALF are tools. I got no use for them or what they do. I wouldn’t cry if, say, one of them tried something on your site and you put them in a painful arm lock while waiting for PD. Not. One. Bit.
