    Well thanks for the kind words. I am proud that one like you would hold me in contempt.

    In reality I'm not really paranoid about anything at all, but you are certainly entitled to your fantasies.

    I am in aviation, and I have been aggravated and inconvenienced by TFRs since they began just over a decade ago. I know how they work, I do work around them when the occasion arises, and I do understand their political nature, whether you do or not. It is true that some REALLY ARE about aviation safety. I have no problem with those, none at all. But they are the minority. Most are generated for POTUS or other political figures.

    And I am not offended, or paranoid, or angry because you don't understand the dynamics of the Ferguson TFR Event. It's cool, dude. Ignorance really is bliss in many cases.

    There was no deception then and there will be no deception now if the airspace is restricted. It is for a good reason.

    Besides the threats of gunfire, the idiots want blood and they will not be able to distinguish between a police helicopter or news chopper at night.

    More proof of squashing freedom of the press in Ferguson. We were told there was a flight ban over parts of the city because of "safety" but in reality these audio recordings prove it was to try to silence some of the press. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    This kind of irresponsible reporting is what is going to cause Ferguson to turn into a blood bath and fan the flames of racial hatred all over the country.

    Congratulations for being one of the bad guys and repeating this trash.

    You think pointing lasers at aircraft is a laughable offense?
    Maybe folks should be crying for you.

    Reporting the truth is no irresponsible.

    You didn't provided a report of the truth. You provided a report spinning the truth.
    They restricted air space for safety reason, not to muzzle the press.

    No they wouldn't.
    It in no way speaks to muzzling the press as the article claims. It speaks to safety concerns.

    ""They finally admitted it really was to keep the media out," said one FAA manager about the St. Louis County Police in a series of recorded telephone conversations obtained by The Associated Press. "But they were a little concerned of, obviously, anything else that could be going on.

    At another point, a manager at the FAA's Kansas City center said police "did not care if you ran commercial traffic through this TFR (temporary flight restriction) all day long. They didn't want media in there."

    "There is really ... no option for a TFR that says, you know, 'OK, everybody but the media is OK,'" he said. The managers then worked out wording they felt would keep news helicopters out of the controlled zone but not impede other air traffic."
