    Counter-terrorism event going on in GA now

    Am sitting here reading with tv news on in background. There is a counter-terrorism event going on in Georgia right now. According to WSB news: homeland security, ICE, fbi, and many other agencies are involved in this.
    They are making all trucks driving on I-20, exit on Thorton Rd in Douglas county GA and are being inspected.

    The news has shown scanners, officers, K-9 officers, and all kinds of interesting equipment and vehicles participating.

    Interesting note: Thorton road turns into a road called Camp Creek which goes directly to the airport.

    It has also been said that this is not being done because of a specific threat, but I've never seen this done anywhere, ever or have I ever heard of it.

    Thanks, Openmyeyes. I'm in NW Georgia and I've never seen it done here either. I would truly love to know what's really up with this. You can bet they are up to something. It kinda sounds like they are looking for big rigs bringing in illegals since ICE is involved. Does ICE deal with anything besides illegal aliens? I know we have a huge new office complex just for ICE and we never hear of anything they're doing. I'm thinking it was built mainly for show.

    This is not the first time they have done this. I live off of I-20 where the truck weight station is and I have probably seen this happen a couple of times in the last few years. I-20 is one of the busiest truck routes. Traffic usually runs pretty smoothly on I-20 until they have one of these, I have seen them stop both cars and trucks at times, it makes me feel better to know the trucks are being checked out. I wonder if they are doing the same thing in other towns?
    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.
