Latest on suspicious weekend power outage

Authorities say two high-voltage transmission towers in the Milwaukee area have been tampered with. The towers fell over the weekend, knocking out power for 17-thousand customers, including the Milwaukee airport. Oak Creek police chief Thomas Bauer says authorities will collect more evidence at the scene today. The Joint Terrorism Task Force and the FBI are investigating. Bauer says bolts were removed from a plate that connects the legs at the base of the towers. Yesterday Amtrak had to cancel ten trains because the downed wired caused by the fallen towers lay across the railroad track. Freight trains from the Canadian Pacific Railroad were also delayed for 26 hours. About 17,000 We Energies customers were without power for hours Saturday. The outage shut down screening equipment at the airport and delayed flights.

I wonder what the diversion covered?

Or was it just an intelligence mission.

Watched the Milwaukee TV news this AM, confirmed previous reports. They're not calling it terrorism at this time. Gotta wonder what this is really all about.

I heard on the radio this morning that two employees of the power line company reported "middle eastern men" video taping the headquarters office.

I wouldn't doubt it. There are a lot of people pissed at the expansion plans for the Oak Creek Power Plant.

I think that's the most plausible explanation. That and the fact that, from photos they've shown of the tower's base, you wouldn't need special tools to vandalize this thing - a 3/4" ratchet and a cheater pipe could of done the trick.

If it was kids, they more than likely video taped their actions (as they always seem to do now-a-days).

The only reason I won't go and say it was an ELF thing, but an ELF like thing, is simply because ELF claims their shit by writing ELF someplace around their work.But I will say this, do to the number of people effected whoever did it should catch a terrorism charge for it. 17K people effected and a major international ariport. Do you know the exact area where the towers that got taken out were???
