When millions of people are planning to storm Area 51, situated in Nevada to unveil any potential alien secrets exist there, a report of a man getting shot to death by the security personnel after his unauthorized attempt to enter the base, popped up as a clear warning. The January 28 incident was revealed by the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS).
Man Shot Dead
The NNSS statement elaborated that at 5:18 PM (As per PST) the unidentified man failed to stop at the NNSS security gate of Mercury. Mercury is some 70 miles north of Las Vegas. The man stopped 8 miles away when he surpassed the security gates. He came out from the car and approached NNSS Security Protective Force Officers (SPOs) and Nye County Sherrif’s Office (NCSO) with a cylindrical object in his hand.
“The suspect refused to adhere to verbal commands of both NSCO and SPOs on the scene,” a line from the released statement said. Later, it stated that security officers fired at him, and that leads to his death. It was also reported that there was no injury to any security personnel, and the FBI was reported regarding the incident.
What Is Area 51 And The Controversy Around It?
To the oblivion, there must be excitement that what is there in Area 51? Also, what’s the controversy clouding over it? A Facebook group named “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” is viral all around the social media. Millions of people have signed up to the page, and many have shown their consent to descend on Area 51 in Nevada. The group is encouraging the members to uncover any potential alien secrets at the place. “We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry. If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Let’s see them, aliens,” the page states. The event is set up for September 20.
American aviation authorities since 1955 owned the Area 51 and amid the security concerns, the entry is restricted to all. Though, permission from the authority can extend the entry facility. But as per the Freedom of Information request’s documents released by the US government claimed that the base was not there at all till 2013.
US Air Force’s Warning
US Air Force has clearly warned for the forthcoming consequences if any strategy would get converted into reality. Laura McAndrews, Air Force spokeswoman, said, “Area 51 is an open training range for the US Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces.”
“The US Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets,” she added.
Plan To Storm Area 51 Is a Joke?
However, the contrast was shown by the organizers of the Facebook page, who claimed it as a joke only. “Hello US government, this is a joke, and I do not actually intend to go ahead with this plan,” Facebook user Jackson Barnes claimed in the discussion page. Further, he wrote, “I just thought it would be funny and get me some thumbs uppies on the Internet. I’m not responsible if people decide actually to storm area 51.”
