Napolitano And DHS Go After The Enemy…And It’s Not The Right Wingers!

“Fore”!!!..Oh, Shit!golferBigDriver

EVERETT, Wash. —  Golf balls are bombarding the Port of Everett and anti-terrorism cameras are being trained on a residential neighborhood to hunt down the source. 

Port officials believe someone on Rucker Hill is whacking golf balls down the hill onto port property, endangering dozens of workers and millions of dollars worth of equipment and cargo.

“We’re trying to use any means possible to stop it, Pointing video surveillance cameras toward the likely source is an appropriate use of the equipment, port officials say. 

The cameras were paid for, along with fencing and other security equipment, with $2.3 million in grants from the Department of Homeland Security following the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

Before the attacks, the Everett port had open terminals and only minimal security. People who live in the surrounding neighborhoods often would walk down and drop crab pots off piers that are now blocked by tall cyclone fences topped with razor wire.  Golf balls have been raining on the port’s Pacific Terminal for several months. However, a police report wasn’t filed until this week when 18 golf balls over the span of two days were found near stacks of shipping containers. 

“It’s been going on for a while, but it’s been getting a lot worse the last couple of days,” port spokeswoman Lisa Lefeber said.

Dock superintendent Bob Porter has been shagging balls from the Rucker Hill golfer for months. He keeps a box of them in his office near Pier 1.

“We have to put a stop to it,” Porter said.  

John Nostrom lives near a grassy overlook on Warren Avenue. On two instances, in recent years, he has seen young men pull up to the spot, haul out their drivers, then tee off. The spot is a little more than 200 yards from the place where balls are being found. 

LOL..Driver, 200 yards…. I did it with a 4 Iron!! 

 Is this not a local Authority problem?  Don’t they have those huge net fences in Everett ?  Golf balls a Clear and Present Danger!
