You got to be kidding me; NOW they’re going to do this. Of all times to do this, they have to do this NOW???? Brilliant thinking on the part of our officials, it’s not like we just had a terrorist bombing a week and a half ago or anything. Thanks for the heads-up, freakin’ morons! – tglp
Illinois (Gregory Pratt-Chicago Tribune) – A Department of Defense training exercise that included explosions heard miles away scared some southwest suburban residents late Tuesday and early this morning.
Residents said they heard “bomb” noises from about 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Tinley Park police received about 25 calls from residents who were either fearful or angry, especially in the wake of the bombings in Boston last week.
The urban warfare training at the former Tinley Park Mental Health Center was expected to use small explosives to blow doors off hinges, local authorities said. A second training exercise at the former mental health center is planned for tonight, this time with helicopters, police said.
