    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

Media Report of Raids on Tulsa Illegals Draws Outrage

(CNSNews.com) - A series of raids in Oklahoma last week led to the arrests of 127 criminal aliens, fugitives and other immigration violators despite a TV station's news report that not only exposed the operation to the public, but also described the people and the vehicles being used in the effort.

The raids in Tulsa on Wednesday, July 12, led to the apprehension of 46 illegal aliens from Mexico and marked the beginning of a four-day statewide operation conducted by federal immigration agents and local law enforcement officers.

That afternoon, KTUL -- also known locally as NewsChannel 8 -- posted a news article on its website entitled "Dozens of Illegals Targeted in 'Operation Return to Sender.'"

The article began by acknowledging that "officially, this story wasn't supposed to be released until Friday."

I can't stop laughing...

Sean McLaughlin, news director of KTUL, told Cybercast News Service that he wasn't concerned the report would interfere with the ICE operation.

"First of all, what they were doing was picking up people who had warrants and other things. So it's not like this was a random deal," McLaughlin said. "Secondly, I'm fairly certain most illegal immigrants who don't speak English and such aren't watching our newscast."


Is he f*cking serious?
