No, I think I pretty much nailed it.
It doesn't have a government plate. It was registered (as of June 2009) to a 60+ y/o woman (occupation unknown)... a registration which
may or may not be current. Which means that the vehicle could have been sold since it was last registered... and the current owner has yet to show up
in a database.
Can we at least agree that nobody in this video is 60+ years of age???
Sure, go for it.
You still missed my point. We have two choices here, right?
The video is fake
the video is real.
Can we agree on that? If there is an in between, it is beyond me.
REAL- if the video is real and these are real federal agents then that vehicle is being used to conduct STATE BUSINESS. Right? Do we still agree? So
if A and B are correct, then it is a STATE vehicle and there is no reason NOT to video tape it and post in on YOUTUBE. We paid for the car and the
FAKE- if the video is fake, then she just posted an image of some innocent person's license plate online. Do you think she had the car stolen to make
the fake video? I do not. I have to believe if it is fake, she knows the "agents" and they used a vehicle belonging to someone they knew. Sounds
like that is her problem and the owner's problem for wanting to make a fake video.
Do you not agree with either of those assessments? It is what I said before but LONGER.
So posting that license plate could prove dire for whoever's name comes up if someone (after watching the video) chooses to stalk the person
associated with that license plate... possibly an innocent bystander.
So would that not be an issue with the video maker? Why are you harassing people on ATS about what someone else posted on Youtube?
You are mad at someone on ATS for looking it up and posting information any of us could have looked up? None of us could have shown you that image of
that plate - we would need the plate and a camera to do that. Once it is posted, any easy to find information is just too damn bad for the people
posting it, especially if it was Grandma's car she borrowed to make a video.
Now... here's where the Mulder and Scully part fits in.
Sometimes they drove their own vehicles... basically because sometimes a government vehicle wasn't always available when they
When did they ever use their own vehicles? I do not recall them either owning a car, let alone using their own. Besides, you are talking about two
fictional characters who spent more time NOT conducting state business in their vehicles than they should have. We are talking about official state
business, not leaving a fertilizer purchase inquiry to chase an abductee.
And so sometimes you are allowed to drive your own vehicle... and get paid mileage when doing so.
I do not doubt that being a fact - BUT they are on duty, representing the government. Their vehicle is part of their official duty. I am pretty sure
that the FBI is aware that it makes enemies so I find it hard to believe they are in the practice of borrowing Aunt Millies SUV to go piss people
Either way, the problem is with the woman who taped it, not the person that looked it up. By that logic, if you had a listed phone number and address
that could be found by your name and city...and I posted your name and city, you would not have a problem with me but the first person to take 4
seconds to look it up and post it?
I just do not see it that way. I am still not sure about this video but either way, the lady with the camera is the one that did any damage and if it
is some old lady's car, why do FBI agents need to use someone else's? Neither of them has a car or could get one issued? So either it belongs to one
of them and it is their bad for using it to conduct official business or they should not have videotaped their friends car as part of their little
All I was saying is that if it is legit, then the FBI needs to worry about Aunt Millie and the reason her car is being put in that position in the
name of state security. If it is fake, her bad for taping it and putting it online. Got it?
