Hey, you know, when I first started this thread over a year ago, it was due to an entirely different type of helicoper that had been very persistently
circling above my apartment complex (the exact same one that I still live in). I never did figure out exactly what type of helicopter they were, or
why they came and left, intermittantly.
But now, and probably as of the last couple of months at least, there has been a distinctly differeny kind of helicopter that is much more persistant
and it is very easy to discern what type these are. They are Police helicopters. The word Police is plainly written in black on the contrasting
white of the copter it'self. The red and blue flashing lights, etc... and they come out in pairs, it appears every single night now. they come up
at dark, and stay up hovering usually very close to the ground, and continually circling and circling. It has become very annoying, as they are
fairly loud, and the constant noise makes it difficult to sleep.
Also, and I don't think that I'm being paranoid and thinking that it is me in particular, especially since all the neighbors say the same.
Everytime someone in the area, myself included goes outside after dark, one of the helicopters will suddenly seem to come to a stop while still
hovering and point their nose with the bright white light down, right on the person - spotlighting them. It's not a particular search for a suspect
in some incident that just happened, they have been doing it nightly for over 2 months.
I have lived here for over two years now, and have considered the neighborhood to be safe at the least. Not the most elaborate or expensive of
neightborhoods, and there is little police activity on the ground compared to many other parts of town.
Also, lately, there have been reports on the news that with the rising cost of gas, many troopers (I think they just said troopers - maybe all law
enforcement, I'm not sure) are going to have to be taking a few unwanted and unpaid days off than thery want to. Not that I am opposed to that, but
that is not the point.
I don't know exactly how much it costs in fuel to keep 2 (or more) helicopters in the air 7 nights a week, doing who knows what? But it must be
considerably more than what it costs in gasoline to keep the ones getting a few days off in gas in their cars.
Something doesn't make sense about the whole thing. I have tried quite a few searches in Google in an attempt to find out what is going on, but come
up with nothing.
Anyone have any idea what is with all the air surveillance (I guess it must be some kind of surveillance) that has been going on? Is it just in OKC?
Or other cities as well?
Thanks for any input anyone may have.
