No-Fly Zone To Be Enforced By Shoot-To-Kill Order During NATO Summit

 

(CBS)    A new report reveals plans to keep residents and dignitaries safe during the NATO Summit include a no-fly zone, with a shoot-to-kill mandate for those who break the ban.

As CBS 2’s Susanna Song reports, the government is warning small plane pilots that if they enter the no-fly zone during the summit, they may be shot down.

This is no joke. It will be enforced for May 19 to May 21.

The flight advisory was issued by the Federal Aviation Administration. The advisory bans non-commercial aircraft from flying within 10 nautical miles of downtown Chicago and below 18,000 feet.

A nautical mile is about one minute of arc of latitude along any meridian. It amounts to 1,852 meters, or about 1.15078 standard miles.

“The United States Government may use deadly force against the airborne aircraft, if it is determined that the aircraft poses an imminent security threat,” the advisory says. “Be advised that noncompliance with the published (notice to airmen) may result in the use of force.”

The advisory says lesser violations by airmen might result in civil penalties and the suspension of airmen certificates, as well as criminal charges.

The only aircraft allowed to fly within the restricted area include regularly-scheduled commercial passenger and cargo carriers, police, and military planes supporting the Secret Service.

This no-fly zone is not new. It has been enforced in Chicago for presidential visits, and also after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks because of terrorism-related concerns.

Roger Butler, who lives near McCormick Place, was not surprised to hear of the temporary flight restrictions directly above his home.

“I think it’s important, I mean, security; we don’t want anything to happen to the city,” Butler said.

Whatever action is necessary must be taken, he said.

“You’ve got to do whatever it takes to make sure that people are safe,” Butler said.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Postal Service is removing some of the blue mailboxes in the downtown area and around McCormick Place in the week leading up to the summit. The Post Office says mail will not be disrupted during the summit.

With all the precautions, neighbors still have questions about security and restrictions. Michael Jackson, the district manager of CD One Price Cleaners, works at Michigan Avenue and Cermak Road, one block outside the area that will be closed off during the summit.

He welcomes the extra security, but hopes his customers won’t feel pressured to stay away.

“I believe that Chicago has show a reputation of handling things correctly, and I don’t think that’s going to be any different in this particular case either,” Jackson said, adding that he was “absolutely” confident in leaders and officials in keeping everyone safe.

Downtown residents are hoping to get some answers to important questions about the summit at a meeting Wednesday evening, as more and more business and restaurant owners downtown expressing concerns.

he meeting is set for 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Ritz-Carlton, 160 E. Pearson St. It is geared toward residents of the Streeterville neighborhood.

    Those bozos couldn’t keep a plane from flying smack into the pentagon. All they’re good for is feeling up small children and old farts at airports.

    Too bad they couldn’t shoot down the planes on 9/11 – Oh yeah, I forgot – Al Qaeda does not exist, and these murderous, lying bastards in our government wiped out 3,000 innocent people – and then millions more with the wars based on their lies.

    Easy to forget – huh?

    They are awfully concerned about something.

    Dear people, please make sure that all these security guards are not shielding the retriggering process for the demolition system installed during the construction of the Sears and Roebuck tower back around 1970. It was set to go, nukes and all, like the WTCs were. This WAS PUBLISHED back before computerized text production existed commercially. You will have to look for torn out pages at your local NY Times, Seattle PI and Seattle Times archives. Different libraries in large towns also have archived Construction Quarterly or a few other periodicals which ran articles on this event back in 1969-1970. Since The New York City Port Authority, New Jersey Port authority, the Rockefellers, Skilling and Associates Engineering, and the project insurance company all ‘lost’ the documents, you will have to LOOK FOR TORN OUT PAGES. The government overseer of the nuke placement was there for the construction of the self-destructing Fukushima plant demolition and the Halliburton interest(41%) at the DH oil well intentional sabotage in the GoM.

    The least you guys could do is go to a library archive at your local university or large metropolitan center and verify this. I am half way around the world and would not be typing all this unless it was vital. Earn your tattoos. I verified the preset as ordered by my father back in 1969. I also found a training film short as how to spray on explosive primer paint material as practiced at the WTCs I and II. I know the criminals who you dopes are ignoring have not destroyed all copies. We need to find as many as possible. I hoped, prayed and thought you would have done this already. What a let down. Now the bad guys are caught up to you in hiding vs. recovering evidence. These A-holes built huge bombs in the middle of town to let someone else blow them up on cue. Their fellow A-holes are doing the ‘Walmart hari krishna shuffle’ as trained to by the Rockefeller education system and the CFRtv. The remedy is up to us.

    (1) Why are these cowards HIDING in a CIVILIAN AREA, just like they accused Saddam Hussein of doing?
    (2) Why are these jerks not meeting in a remote military base ????? NOT ENUFF HOOKERS???
    (3) They, the MIC (Military Industrial Complex) ARE A FAR GREATER THREAT TO freedom AND liberty THEN ANYONE. tHEY ARE not "PROTECTING" us, they are ENRICHING THEMSELVES.

    "Easy to forget – huh?"

    When its based on the inane ramblings of a fringe cult? Yup…sure is.

    " Why are these jerks not meeting in a remote military base ? "

    Because dupes like you would see that as a sign they are trying to hide something?

    "“You’ve got to do whatever it takes to make sure that people are safe,” Butler said." whatever happened to an "education".

    I guess he has never read Benjamin Franklin :

    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."

    Or Samuel Adams:

    "Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say ‘what should be the reward of such sacrifices?’ Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!"
