Usually I would see a thread like this and dismiss it. Not this week.
I'm too paranoid to give out my exact location, except that in the past I've mentioned I live in Missouri.
This weekend and into early this week there were helicopters buzzing my house over and over. But it only happened REALLY late at night. Like around
now, between 2am and 5am.
Where I live it is very strange to hear helicopters. The only ones I've really seen are from the hospital. I mean to tell you these helicopters were
flying over 15-20 times a night. The first night I didn't even go out to see what the deal was. I figured it must have been the hospital carrying
people back and forth from some terrible accident out in the country or something, as the helicopters were flying nearly right over my house from
around the center of town and going straight out into the country and back. I never saw more than one, so I'm not sure if there were multiples. But
they kept going and going. A few times it sounded like it even circled around a bit. I believe the circling one was on the 3rd night. By then I was
too scared to go look. I first saw the helicopter on the 2nd night, but it was difficult to make out any distinct features since it was dark. The only
time I saw it during the day, I believe, was on the third day. I heard it go overhead, and come back, and then when it went overhead again I ran
outside and it was all black with a little bit of a chrome like top around the prop. It was only a single prop, but flying pretty low like these ones.
I remember feeling uneasy about the whole thing. It buzzed by a couple more times but not as much as it did later that night and the nights before.
I've seen threads and saw videos of helicopters buzzing around people's houses and thought they must be crazy. But even my wife, the stable,
non-conspiracy theorist one in the family was starting to think something weird was going on. I stay up late frequently, but she doesn't. It woke her
up several times and she hoped that they would quit so she could sleep.
I'm kind of kicking myself for not shooting video. I have professional kit with a very long zoom lens and 1080p recording, but I didn't use it. I
think part of the reason was denial. I didn't want to be one of those crazy YouTubers. I didn't want to look like a moron around my neighbors. But I
think the other part of the reason is the one that freaks me out the most: I was actually scared I might get caught recording them. I've seen videos
of people recording police from their front yard getting arrested. No way did I want to mess with the government/military, and my giant lens is a
pretty dead giveaway. I just felt uneasy about the whole thing. Next time I will at least try to get it with my iPhone, which is much less
Seeing this freaks me out because I saw something similar. But I always figured that since I'm in a smaller town that martial law and all that BS
wouldn't come here first, it would probably hit the coasts. But then I realized that to be effective, they will need to strike at once. But how could
all the police or military personnel go along with such a plot? And in secret? That's the part that really has me doubting. Sure there are bad people
on police forces and in the military, and lately they've gotten away with more and more, but overall they're much like you and me. It would take all
of them and more to pull this off.
This leads me to believe that martial law isn't about to take place, but maybe something worse. What's worse than martial law? I'm not sure I want
to find out. But it seems more like a general control measure than one that is specific in locking down entire communities. Perhaps there will be an
attack of some kind, or a huge natural disaster that they somehow know about. Who knows? We should remain vigilant throughout the coming weeks. I know
this is the cliche thing to say on ATS, but I don't say this lightly or very often at all: I feel something big is going down soon. I don't know if
it's our collective consciousness from OWS, but the tension in the air just feels so heavy lately, you know?
