So this is what it looks like to see the community of Above Top Secret respond to something close to you.
I live in Saratoga Springs, NY. Actually, I reside in Ballston Spa, but Saratoga is where all the work and play is. Wilton is directly adjacent to
Saratoga Springs and is the main commercial area of Saratoga. People who are in Wilton tell everyone they live in Saratoga. Might as well, because
we're all centered here.
It's nice to be able to get a baseline for how people respond to things like this. It's also interesting to be able to actually say that you're all a
News Channel 13 was supposedly going to attempt to film the cottage where President Ulysses S. Grant spent his last days. The cottage just happens to
be right next to the prison.
There were no prisoners in the prison except any that might have been helping to close down the facilities.
There was a film company also filming inside the prison at that very moment. They claim the film company is a small indie firm, but I don't know the
But no permission was received for News Channel 13 before they went to film. Of course, they considered they should not need permission if they were
simply going to be filming property which is legal for the public to film, i.e. - Grant's Cottage.
The officer who dealt with the news crew is his own man. As well, when dealing with reporters who are known for being determined in getting their
jobs done, I imagine this man may have felt the need to be more aggressive.
The fact remains that the prison itself should not have been seen in any of the shots at all. The crew should have been filming the cottage and that
Therefore, the most reasonable conclusion is that the crew noticed there was something interesting happening and chose to attempt to get footage which
they should not have done.
If you want to get all theoretical, let's at least do this intelligently. There is always the possibility that News Channel 13 wanted to find a way
to purchase the public's approval. There are many reasons as to why this would be an intelligent method. Firstly, it makes News Channel 13 look like
the martyrs of real investigation, making them to appear as if they do not report as they are told to report. This would segregate them in the
public's eye from being manipulated by any governmental organization. Or, this could simply be a way for them to gain a ratings boost in general.
These are just a couple of the reasons why this could work.
However, the reporter in charge of this particular investigation has been working with News Channel 13 for many years and has been to the prison
before. Actually, the very same reporter reported on the building of the very same prison at its very inception. Therefore, he may have simply felt
comfortable enough to take some footage, or at the very least, to be in the area freely. Therefore, I think the whole conspiracy theory thing is a
However, if you must know, and maybe also if it is still a viable theory, there are many from this area who considered that possibly the prison was
being refit to be able to retain the illegals which are coming in. They imply that this prison may be converted into housing for the mass migration
of illegal immigrants.
Some of the people who mentioned this theory seemed to be those who were relatively eloquent and they dominated the approval of most of the people who
interacted with the comments on News Channel 13's page.
All of this stuff is easy to find for yourselves. It was extremely easy for me because I live here.
But you should most definitely do your research before possessing a thought. Do research well before you manifest your thoughts into the tangible
format. In this manner you will partially mask the vast ignorance which we all possess with our extremely limited minds.
Good evening, ATS.
P.S. - I do recognize the couple who know a little of what they're talking about. That's nice to see.
